It is also important to remember to label your moving boxes to know what exactly is inside each box. Having to search through each box to find your valuables takes time and energy; both of these things are precious resources when you’re moving. Appliances should be taped shut and adorned with the proper packing material to prevent damage during transport. Additionally, oil can prevent mildew from forming.
Be sure not to store combustibles or perishables that can go bad. If you plan on moving, notify your postal service of a change of address, as well as your bank and any other mailings to your old address.
