    When you have clothes in hangers, you can just pull a plastic bag over them, covering the clothes and tying a knot on it. This way you can cover up and pack the clothes along with the cloth hangers, and it becomes easier to unpack as well. All you have to do is hang them in your closet and take off the plastic bag. Good as new!

    Taking pictures of packing boxes and travel bags is indeed a great idea. I’ll definitely implement this practice the next time I move to another address. Thanks for sharing!

    To take photos of each box you have packed after it is labeled seems a really good idea. It would be much easier to find what you need after the moving.

    I’d definitely agree with the rolling your clothes instead of folding! You’d be surprised at how much space that saves. Thanks for all of these great tips!

    I have always rolled my clothes to save space but I’ve never thought of using socks to pack socks. Great idea! Thanks for sharing.

    It's really important not to have empty spaces in your boxes especially when we're talking about fragile items such as vases or glasses. Your tips are good, I must admit. I've worked as a mover in Redhill, Surrey for quite some time and still managed to learn a couple of new tricks.

    Rolling your clothes instead of folding them sounds interesting. Does it really make that much of a difference? I'll try it the next time I get an item packing job.

    I'd like to share a detail I rarely see on any self help packing or moving guides. Arrange parking space for your movers. You just have to call your local council and let them know of your move. Then you need to acquire a parking permit unless you already have one. When you hire other services it's easy to have the company van parked several blocks away as it won't be needed. However when you're moving house it's important to park the van as close to the client's property as possible.

    These are great packing tips for a short vacation or a permanent move. I’ve heard about rolling your clothes to save space, but I’ve never thought about photographing boxes or using clothes to fill up space. Thanks for the advice!

    When it comes to packing your fragile items, you should try and wrap them in such a way that they have sufficient padding and that they don’t move around in the boxes. You can wrap them with several layers of newspaper or bubble wrap. You should then use packing peanuts or foam to fill up the box and help keep your wrapped belongings in place.

    My husband and I will be moving out of state in a few months are we are really struggling with figuring out the whole packing situation. Neither of us have very much experience with moving so getting certain things into certain boxes has proved to be a real challenge for us. We are really considering hiring some packing services to do the job for us until we can figure it out for ourselves. I will definitely use these tips in the meantime.
