Bekins’ National Moving Month Tip #7: Labels

7.  Use packing labels.

During the packing and moving process, it’s tempting to want to stuff items haphazardly into boxes just to get the job done.  You will thank yourself though if you employ a little bit of organization to your packing process and pack by room.

Packing room-by-room gives you a head-start on unpacking.  If you indicate which box goes in which room, your movers will be able to unload much faster. It will also give you less work in the long run – you won’t have to haul boxes from room to room!

When you arrive in your new home on move-in day, print off or make signs to indicate the name of each room. For example, some options might be master bedroom, master bathroom, nursery, or linen closet.  If you attach signs to those doors and if you’ve labeled your boxes according to what room or closet they belong to, there will be no question where the boxes go.  This will speed up the moving process exponentially and also help you to find your items faster.

Attached to the blog are individual labels both in color and black and white for your printing pleasure.  These labels have space for you to also write what contents are in the box, speeding up the process even more.

The links underneath the pictures allow you to print off a whole page of labels instead of just individual ones.
