Packing up Your Bedroom

Packing up your bedroom for a move can seem like a lot of work, but our expert tips and packing supplies can make this job far more manageable.
Packing up for a move can seem daunting, but we think that it’s easier when you break things down room by room. The bedroom is one important area to focus on, because some of your most important things are probably located here and you want to make sure that they get to your destination in one piece. At Elite Self Storage we have a lot of experience helping people who are moving. We can sell you the supplies that you need to pack up or we can rent you a storage locker that will keep your stuff safe until your new place is ready. If you’re getting ready to pack up your bedroom, follow this advice and you’ll have an easier time.

Gather the Necessary Supplies

First you need to have the proper packing supplies. Fortunately, our storage facility sells everything that you need. We sell boxes and tape, along with protective materials like bubble wrap. We also sell more specialized packing supplies, like furniture covers and wardrobe boxes.

Make Trash, Sell, and Donate Piles

As you go through your stuff, separate everything into a few different piles. A move is a perfect opportunity to get rid of things that you don’t need, and we’re sure that your bedroom is full of stuff that doesn’t need to make its way to your next home. Make a pile of things to throw out or get rid of. If there are valuable items that you no longer want or need, think about selling them. Then make a donation pile. Your old clothing and other items could be of use to other people, so donating them could be the perfect way to lessen your load and help out someone in need. If your room is a bit messy, this step can really help you organize everything.

Make a Packing List

Once you have everything that you actually want to bring with you to your next home, make a packing list. Keeping track of everything that you plan to bring with you can prevent you from forgetting anything and keep you organized.

Label Boxes

This goes hand in hand with the packing list. Labeling your boxes can make move-in day much easier. You won’t need all of your stuff immediately upon moving into a new place, but there are certain items that you use every day. Properly labeling your moving boxes will make it much easier to find them.

Protect Fragile Items

Make sure that you get bubble paper and foam peanuts when picking up packing supplies. Some of your items are fragile and might not do well in transit without them. Taking the extra time to properly protect them can prevent expensive damages.

Think About a Storage Unit

It also might be a good idea to get a storage unit. Whether you’re downsizing or have seasonal items that could be put away for a bit, a storage locker at our facility can help you stay organized.
