A step by step guide for moving boxes to Glasgow

Are you making a move to Scotland’s friendliest city? Perhaps you are brainy enough to have been accepted to one of the many prestigious universities such as Glasgow or Strathclyde.  Maybe you’ve bagged that dream job or possibly you’re just keen to move to the big city. Whatever the reason you are packing up your entire life into moving boxes for Glasgow and taking the trip to your new home.  This can be an emotional experience for several reasons but one thing that could be causing you unnecessary stress is the dreaded process of packing.

Most people have been through it at least once, many have moved home several times but moving to a new city means you have a long drive ahead of you and do not want to forget anything.  Here are some friendly tips on how to make the packing experience that much easier and where to purchase durable moving boxes for Glasgow.

Step One: Invest in heavy duty packing boxes in Glasgow

This is one of the most important parts of moving home and yet many people try to save money at this step or miss it out entirely by using bags, baskets or old flimsy boxes that were designed for entirely different purposes. Do not make this mistake. You should consider all the house hold items that you plan to take with you and buy sturdy cardboard boxes for Glasgow.  By doing so you will realise the variety in shape and size of your belongings. Your boxes need to be able to carry the weight of your precious belongings from A to B. The last thing you want is to get half way to the moving van for the bottom of the box to collapse and the antique clock that your granny gave you smash all over the concrete. You also don’t want to be balancing too many items on top of one another in open crates or risking loose packaging such as bags. In a move to a new city things will wobble and slide in transit, play it safe and have boxes to suit the storage. Find reliable moving boxes for Glasgow move here.

Step Two: Plan your packing: Boxes for Glasgow

Fail to prepare and prepare to fail: A solid phrase to remember throughout all aspects of life but also key to moving house. Always pack one room at a time and start with the room you use the least first. This avoids the horror of going to use something and realising its ten boxes deep. You should have a strict clear out while you are packing as you don’t want your fresh start to be infested with old knick-knacks you don’t need or want. Don’t waste space with this in your packing boxes to Glasgow. Start small in each room, methodically go through every drawer, shelf and cupboard separating into piles for keeping and for throwing away. Be strict with yourself It is unnecessary for you to unpack junk from your many moving boxes in Glasgow.

Step Three: Packing your boxes for Glasgow

This step may seem obvious but now that you have gone through every item in your house you will be exhausted and possibly stressed by the amount of stuff you actually own. Spread heavier items out across multiple boxes and fill them up with lighter items. Someone has to carry these from your old home, to your van or car, then into your new home and possibly up stairs! Make it as easy as possible by strategically packing your moving boxes for Glasgow Protect your breakables with bubble wrap and secure your boxes with packing tape. If one was to fall over in transit you want to avoid items spilling out and sliding all over the van. Always label your boxes with the room they are taken from and with the items inside. This will quicken the unpacking process and also reassure you if you experience that horrible feeling that you have forgotten something. You should invest in durable tape and wrap to transfer your packing boxes to Glasgow securely.

Step Four: Important Items in packing boxes Glasgow

You should plan for this step at the very beginning of your moving boxes for Glasgow process. It is an important step for someone moving to a new city as you, or your stuff, may be in transit for a while.  Leave aside items that you need during the journey such as your mobile, wallet, keys, toothbrush, iPad and snacks. In addition you might want to carry any paperwork that you could need during the move including a list of things you have to do when you first arrive at your new home, aside from unpacking. You may also want to dedicate space for important items that you will need straight away at your new home but may not necessarily need during the journey. For example toiletries, cleaning products.  All of these could be stored in packing boxes for Glasgow’s first night.

Step Five: Unpacking your boxes in Glasgow

This step should made easy if you followed steps one to four.  Your moving boxes will be labelled so you know which rooms to put them in. At this stage you might want to do a quick clean before you start unpacking, hence the reason for setting aside important items in step four. Start with the room you will need to use first (this will depend on the person as some of us prioritise napping before snacking and vice versa!). It is safe to say that your bed plus kitchen and bathroom essentials are the priority. Switch everything on to ensure nothing has been damaged and the outlets are working. Take readings of your utility metres. Now that you have successfully transferred the contents of your packing boxes to Glasgow and unloaded everything to your new home, you may wonder what to do with them. You should reuse your moving boxes in Glasgow for Halloween costumes! For example dress up as your favourite T.V character and create a T.V to wear from your cardboard boxes to a Glasgow Halloween party.
