Plastic wrap is one of the best tools an amateur mover could hope for. See, things often get damaged on Moving Day because they’re not packed tightly enough. When things have a chance to move around in transit, things will rattle, shake, and get thrown around. Plastic wrap, especially adhesive plastic wrap like Press-N-Seal, is the solution to that problem.
(No, we weren’t paid to write this. We just like useful and affordable solutions.)
Today’s article outlines three really useful ways you can use plastic wrap to keep things safe and secure on Moving Day.
#1: Keep Your Drawers Shut
Problem: your fridge or your drawers won’t stay shut while you’re moving them around. It’s a pain in the neck, but it’s also potentially dangerous for your fingers and your belongings.
Solution: wrap the doors shut with plastic wrap. Sometimes people want to use packing tape to keep doors shut, but you must not do this. The adhesive of the tape will ruin the wood finish of your drawers or leave residue behind on your fridge. Plastic wrap keeps drawers shut without causing any damage.
#2: Keep Jewelry & Small Items Organized
This tip comes to us from Organizing Junkie!
Whether you have a lot of jewelry or a lot of nuts, bolts, and workshop odds-and-ends, packing up tiny items without getting them mixed up or lost takes planning and creativity. If you don’t already have an organizer for tiny items already, take an ice cube tray and put those bits in each compartment. Then, wrap the whole thing in plastic wrap tightly so that each compartment is sealed.
#3: Package Daily Doses of Supplements or Medication
This works best using Press-N-Seal or similar products, but you can use adhesive plastic wrap to make little pouches for your daily medications. That way, you can pack up your prescriptions or supplements and just keep what you need for the week prior to Moving Day.
Those are just a few of the ways you can use plastic wrap for your move! The key is to be creative with what you have so that you can pack your things more securely, efficiently, and safely. If you want help with your move, call Affordable Quality Moving and Storage to get a free quote!
