Storage Packing Tips for Moving

Moving homes is considered one of the most stressful events in life following death and divorce. And with 43 million Americans moving home every year that adds up to a heck of a lot of stress. There are alternatives though.

In a perfect world, all of us would have the financial wherewithal to hire a relocation company NYC to help make the move as stress free as possible by paying them to pack, load, and unload their possessions. However, even selecting a professional moving company can be a stressful experience. For example, is the company licensed, does it have good client feedback, can you trust the client feedback? These are all questions that weigh on our mind when selecting a mover for the wrong moving company will make your trip even more stressful. And given the physical stature of most movers, you are not going to want to start a fight with them once they have been contracted.

If you decide to save money and go it alone, the following tips should come in handy:

  • Assemble all your packing supplies and accessories in advance. As well as the obvious things such as clean boxes of different size, don’t forget labels and markers, corrugated paper rolls, and styrofoam pellets.
  • Buy strong tape at least 2 inches thick. Masking tape or cellophane tape is not strong enough to seal boxes properly.
  • Use small boxes for heavy items and large boxes for light ones. For example, books may be small but can be very heavy. A large box filled with books is an invitation to a chiropractor.

  • Don’t leave it to the last minute. Do a little every day starting weeks in advance.
  • Pack in a logical manner, room by room. Pack the kitchen last as it is often used till the last moment.
  • Proper labeling is a time saver. Color labels can make this task easier to organize. Give each box a number, contents, name of room into which it’s going, mark if its contents are fragile and which way is “Up,” and don’t put the label over the closure.
  • Keep an inventory. It may take time but it will save you even more time. The more detailed the better.
  • Plastic sheds are an excellent temporary storage location and can be disassembled and taken with you once emptied.
  • You can never have too much cushioning and separation when packing fragile items.
  • Do not exceed the maximum gross weight limit as printed on the box.
  • Packing and storing computers is a complex subject that requires its own dedicated article.

This is only the start of your education for storage packing tips but it is a very good start. Stay tuned for more packing tips. If you realize along the way that you have too much stuff to move to another home, check out New Jersey self-storage.

Combatting Senior Isolation

Many times, as seniors get older, they find their social world shrinking. It may start early in retirement, with a move to a nicer climate. Unless the retirees are very proactive and assertively find new friends, they may find that they don’t have nearly as many friends in their new neighborhood as they left in their old one. Another reason for the shrinking social circle may be a divorce later in life, after which one or both persons finds fewer social opportunities or may be too embarrassed to be very socially active. Perhaps the increasing numbers of deaths due to poor health or age decrease the social circle, as well as the possibility of losing a spouse. Also related to poor health is the possibility of the seniors’ decreasing tolerance of physical activity, poorer driving skills and/or their decreasing night vision. One or more of these reasons can serve to isolate the senior citizen, often creating loneliness and depression (which further decreases physical activity), and decreasing social support systems, and can form a vicious circle of increasing isolation.

Here are some suggested activities, resources, and programs that you may have in place in your community (or better yet, that you could start) that could decrease isolation for the senior in your life and increase the seniors’ social world:

First would obviously be the local senior center. Even small communities have them. They may have many different kinds of activities, from shopping trips and excursions, to exercise and dance lessons, to foot care, even computer classes – and all cater especially to seniors! (Computers themselves provide several avenues for social interaction, via emails, chat rooms, etc.) Visit your local senior center to investigate what is available in your area, then accompany your senior until he or she feels comfortable. Who wants to be the “Lone Stranger”?

Another obvious source for activities for the senior is church. Many churches have organized groups doing charity work, benefits, potlucks and even quilting circles to raise money. Many of these are also daytime activities.

Less obvious is your local community center and/or library. They will often have classes, lectures, book clubs, and serve as meeting places for various organizations and clubs. Clubs that seniors may enjoy run the gamut from quilting, card playing, gardening and any other type of activity or hobby. Find one that might interest your senior and again, go along as well until he or she make a few friends and feels comfortable going alone. Don’t forget to check your local paper for an events calendar in your area, too.

Check out the community colleges in your area. Colleges often offer extremely low cost or free classes to senior citizens. Speaking of schools, be thinking about ways your senior may want to give back to the community. Many kindergartens and elementary schools would be delighted to have volunteers to tutor or help children with reading, writing and even craft projects. Check to see if your local youth center may have a need for mentors or teachers. Experience is the best teacher!

Also, think of all the ways that a senior could be a valuable volunteer for a hospital, library, animal shelter or in a foster grandparenting program. Museums, galleries and other exhibit-oriented facilities often need docents to head tours.

Don’t forget your local YMCA or local community pool for exercise classes and free swims or swim classes. It’s good exercise! Make sure that your senior can maintain a comfortable exercise level in his or her chosen activity, however. Many places offer classes just for seniors, catering to their needs, likes, and abilities. Or if you’re looking for something a bit more fast-paced, check out the top gyms in Greenwich.

Last, but not least, is to organize your own activity! Organize your own coffee hour every week and invite your friends and neighbors! Plan a shopping trip and lunch every month! Get involved with an activity you love and make it yours, then invite some people you think would like it also. Start an investment club, travel club, or a dinner club. Senior isolation is not limited to just your senior – – there are others out there who would like to be involved – they just need an opportunity.

Methods of Packing Preferred by Different People

Packing household contents can be very time consuming. Of course, there are a lot of people around ready to lend a hand with the packing or give advice to help people in the course of relocating. Materials for packing different household items are available in most shops, and people can easily shop for the appropriate materials and different containers to insert their belongings for proper storage until they arrive in their new homes.

Most people, however, feel they are going to waste too much time and efforts, and they are not certain that they will successfully manage to pack their items, especially if they are too busy professionally and have a large amount of tasks to attend. Furthermore, there are a number of household and personal items that are fragile and can be easily damaged during the transportation. It is especially important to pack these efficiently to ensure their arrival in the new home in good condition. Such items include pictures, glassware, crockery, etc. Especially if they are valuable items, they should be well packed and wrapped and handled with the utmost care. This is the so called “fragile” part of our household items and sometimes it’s also the most precious. That’s why it’s good to be sure nothing bad will happen to them during the removal process.
Packing of appliances and devices, such as TVs, is another area where the highest care should be taken to pack them well and protect them against minor or major damage. Some people do not feel they can do such packing with the necessary efficiency.
Transporting furniture and its proper packing prior to the transportation is a staple in most relocation projects. Different items of furniture have to be disassembled for easier packing and transportation, and then after they arrive at the new destination they should be reassembled again. Not all people can be certain they can undertake such disassembling and packing.
Then the solution is to turn to removal companies which are specialized in professional packing and can ensure the safe wrapping of items to protect them from damage during transportation. Besides professional packing services, the benefits of choosing removal companies include supplying all packing materials, division of items for the most efficient packing, and undertaking all activities related to the packing of the entire range of items to be moved to new homes.
People can use removal companies even when they decide to do the packing themselves, but they can order the appropriate packing materials to be delivered to their homes. When they are ready with the packing, they can call the removal company to come and load the packed items into their transport trucks. Removal companies offer people in need of materials to pack their items packs of indispensable materials such as sets of boxes, rolls of bubble wrap, rolls of tape, and sheets of paper. These materials are usually selected in amount and size to conform to most average household removal projects.
Whichever method of ordering packing materials and the very packing manner people choose, they can rely on removal companies whenever they experience difficulties, so that they can get professional help and have their items safely wrapped and transported to their new homes.
