It’s understandable: We want our move to be as painless as possible, unless you have a ton of experience with packing, mistakes are going to be made.  These mistakes can be anything from relatively minor, to something that can bring the whole schedule to a screeching halt.

At the end of the day, hiring professional movers through Furniture Relocators is a great way to ensure that things run as smoothly as possible.  This is how you go about making certain that your personal belongings are transported as stress free as humanly possible.

Nonetheless, it is still worth taking a look at some of the major packing mistakes people make.


Biggest Packing Mistakes You Can Make


If nothing else, think of this list of the biggest packing mistakes people make as a list of reasons.  You can then apply this list of reasons to why it’s best to hire a Calgary based moving company that can take you through all of the particulars inherent with your specific needs.


 Here are some of the biggest packing mistakes we’ve come across over the years:


  • Waiting until the last possible second.  In terms of when it is time to start packing, there are several possibilities.  Ultimately, different timelines work for different people/companies.  However, even with that in mind, we can tell you that the last thing you want to do is wait until the last possible second.
  • They rush: With some people, even if they start their packing early on, they still want to rush through the whole process.  This can lead to shoving things into any boxes which does not suggest they might be able to handle a big move.  As you can imagine, this can lead to a number of potential problems later on.
  • Trying to do all the packing on your own.  We understand that no one really wants to spend money on packing services.  However, consider what you are ultimately paying for and the mistakes that can be made.  With professional moving and packing companies, you’re getting experience, professionalism, and the peace of mind that is inherent in knowing the job will be done correctly the first time around.
  • Hiring the first company they come across.  Hiring a moving company is a smart idea.  However, some people make the mistake of going with the first one that they call.  Doing this can get you committed to the wrong type of company for what you are looking for.


At the end of the day, these packing mistakes are easy to avoid.
