When relocating from one place to another, one of the most common questions we hear at Furniture Relocators is “When should I start packing?”  This is something a lot of people like to ask for the simple reason that most of us dislike packing.  While we love the feeling of moving from one space to another, since doing so quite frequently signals the beginning of a new, positive chapter in our lives, most of us would love to skip the packing part of the adventure altogether.

We understand.  As Calgary’s best movers, we know that packing is something that you really don’t want to deal with on any level.  In a perfect world, you would be able to just teleport to your new place, and everything would be unpacked and waiting for you.  Unfortunately, even with a Calgary moving company in your corner, you’re still going to have to deal with the packing on some level.  Furniture Relocators can help with your packing needs on every imaginable level, while also giving you the packing supplies you know you’re going to need when the time comes.

Still, in terms of the best time to start packing for a move, there are a few things that you should keep in mind.


When Is It Time To Start Packing?


As you can imagine, there is no such thing as a universal answer to the question of when someone should start packing.  The truth of the matter is that you are going to want to consider your particular situation.  Are we talking about a small one-bedroom apartment to another small one bedroom apartment?  Are we talking about a huge move that will take you from one large house to another?  Is your business planning to move to larger offices?  All of these scenarios represent different packing, storage, and transportation demands.  As you can probably imagine, all of these scenarios represent situations in which different timelines need to be considered.

For example, someone who only needs to pack up a small one-bedroom apartment can probably get away with waiting until a day or two before the actual move.  But a company who has to transport supplies, furniture, and people to a larger building?  Forget it.  You want to get the ball rolling early, but you don’t want to disrupt the flow of business too much either.

At Furniture Relocators, one of the first things we’re going to do is help you work out the timeline.
