3 Moving Hacks for New Utah Home Owners
1. Pack your Moving Truck Like an Expert
When you are moving valuable household items in a moving truck, it is important to know how to pack them so everything is transferred to your house with ease and nothing gets broken or damaged. The trick to packing your moving truck is to put all the valuables in the cab with you, your heavy appliances close to the cab (appliances like the washer, refrigerator, and dryer), Put your more heavy boxes in the middle area of the cargo, put your longer items (like your mattress and sofa) against the walls of the cargo area, and put your items with draws like desks and dressers against your mattress so that none of the drawers fall out. Then you can use all of your smaller items to fill in the spaces so everything is compact, almost like a tetris game.
2. Take Advantage of the Many Uses of Saran Wrap
Saran wrap can be used for many things for moving, and the more you have of it, the merrier. You can use it to cover the tops of your drawers when packing so nothing falls out, wrap all the handles of your shovels, brooms, mops, etc together to bundle them together for easy packing, saran wrap a blanket around your furniture to make sure it does not get dented in the move, and more. The more saran wrap, the easier the move!
