Packing Suggestions for Your Piedmont Move

Getting prepped for your upcoming move in and around the Piedmont area takes time and coordination — and a lot of patience! Do you have access to all the supplies that you need to get started, and ensure that you don’t have to stop immediately and run out for additional boxes, tape or other items?

Plan Ahead for Packing

Before you start packing, pull together all the supplies that you’re going to need. Whether you’re using a professional moving company or doing it yourself, packing is a step that you simply can’t skip. When you have everything together upfront, you’ll save yourself a lot of grief and frustration later. Here’s a quick hit list of items to gather:

  • Packing tape (MANY rolls!)
  • Old blankets or moving blankets for padding
  • Medium-sized boxes
  • Specialty boxes for china, electronics and more
  • Permanent markers
  • Clipboard
  • Trash bags
  • Bubble wrap

Packing will go much more smoothly if you can simply reach out and grab the tools that you’ll need during your packing process.

De-Stocking the Fridge and Freezer

The last thing you want to do when you’re prepping for a move is to start buying a bunch of groceries! Refrigerated and frozen food can be a challenge, because you’ll need to get everything packaged up well enough to sustain it during the multiple hours it will be out of cold storage. Now’s the time to start finding the bottom back corners of your freezer and figuring out what can be tossed and what you should cook.

There’s lots to be done before you get going, but getting ahead on your packing will make a big difference in your stress level in the weeks leading up to your move. Need help getting packed?
