4 great tips for packing your bedroom when moving

By Eoin D on 01/21/2022

Packing your bedroom can seem a little daunting.

It is not until we have to move that we realise how much we can hide away and store in our rooms.

It can feel like packing your bedroom is a combination of living space, storage unit and office all in one.

This Liffey Moving guide to packing your bedroom should help make the process much easier for you and assist our team on moving day.

1. Declutter:

The first thing is to declutter. This is our number one recommendation for almost every room in your home.

You should start with your wardrobe as this will most likely be the bulk of your items. You can then go through your cabinets and other storage places to reduce the number of items you have to pack and move.

Divide your belongings into items to throw away, those you want to keep and those that you can donate or sell.

Try on your items to find old and worn items and those you simply do not want anymore.

Find books, old phones and lost items that are no longer of use. Aim to go with items you know for sure you no longer need or use.

Nothing is worse when packing your bedroom and then regretting throwing out items by mistake.

2. Packing items that you may need:

Try to get your packing items in order and in this way, you can discover what packing supplies you will need.

Liffey Moving can provide many of the packing supplies for packing your bedroom - get in touch with us if you need any items needed for packing your bedroom.

These items may include:

  • Packing boxes
  • Bubble wrap
  • Shrinkwrap
  • Paper packing items
  • Labels

You may also need:

  • Wrapping tape
  • Garbage bags
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Mattress covers and boxes
  • Tools for disassembling your furniture

If you are unsure of what you may need, get in touch with the Liffey Moving team and we can provide you with some pointers on what you have to do.

3. It is time to start packing your bedroom:

Start from last to first.

What we mean is pack the items you will not need immediately and work your way to the most important items. These may be your bed sheets, pillows and overnight clothes for your first night in your new home.

Take an inventory of all your items, their location and the boxes they are in. Include whose better room it is, whether they are essential, fragile or clothing etc.

This will allow our moving team to place the boxes in the right location, allowing you to unpack and sort your items in the shortest amount of time.

4. Valuable items:

Items of sentimental value or high-value items should be correctly labelled and packed accordingly. Let our team know so we can take extra care with such items.

Glassware, laptops and other fragile items can move when not packed correctly, so use the appropriate amount of wrapping paper and spacers to ensure this does not happen.
