How do you Organize Packing for a Move?
Is Color Coding and Labeling Good for Packing?
One of the most common mistakes people make while packing for a move is creating a complicated labeling system with unnecessary charts of what each label means, color coding and so forth.
Using Complicated Charts
When moving often times people use color codes and then they develop a chart system to remember what are the color codes are for. For example, one customer decides to use color Red for bathroom box, green for kitchen and yellow for the bedroom. another customer decides on different colors for different boxes and rooms. And to make it worse they create a more complex chart system to remember what each color is for and where it is supposed to go.
Why is it better to use a different method than color coding?
The reason why this system will not only be time-consuming, it will also cost you more in movers time and therefore a higher mover bill.
It is good to remember that each moving company has different moves and customer throughout the week. They have to figure out what each customer’s system is and learn how to read each chart. Most of these moving companies that you hire get paid based on an hourly rate. This unnecessary system will stress you out, but it may also very well higher your cost of the move. Because now the movers have to spend time figuring your unique system out.
