Let’s be honest, no one really relishes the idea of packing in preparation for moving house and it often gets to the point where you can hardly believe you have this much stuff. One of the rooms which is particularly dreaded during the packing process is the kids’ rooms. As professional Perth movers, we’re here to share our wisdom when it comes to getting the kids’ rooms packed up for the move.
1. Give yourself plenty of time
The kids’ rooms are not something you want to leave to the last minute and you also have to consider the added time of contending with little people who don’t want certain items packed away yet. Start early and get as much as possible packed before moving day – set a limit as to how many toys can stay out of boxes until the last minute so you only have minimal items to pack the day before.
2. Talk about the move
It should come as no surprise to the kids that all of their items are going into boxes so talk to them ahead of time about the process of moving house and what they can expect. Kids like familiarity and the sight of their treasured toys being packed away might be too much without the right lead up. Take them along to buy packing materials, boxes and tape so they feel a little more in control.
3. Declutter as you go
Trust us, this is going to save you a whole lot of time. Kids seem to accumulate stuff very quickly and rather than shoving everything into boxes, bin anything that’s broken or incomplete and donate items which are no longer used. Try to get the kids involved in this process and help them decide what they should keep and what they should get rid of.
4. Get the kids to help
Packing is often easier when you just do it yourself but often the kids will want to get involved. Rather than wasting energy trying to keep them away, get them involved instead. Prepare a special box where they can pack their soft toys and then have them decorate the box. Not only does this make them feel a part of the process, it also keeps them occupied.
5. Bring in the professionals
If the thought of packing up your kids’ rooms simply feels too overwhelming, remember that you have the option of calling in the professionals. A professional packing service can come in closer to the moving date and take care of the task on your behalf. This means you don’t have to spend hours sorting through everything and you can be confident that everything has been packed safely and securely.
