If you’re planning on driving your car to your new home, then with a little bit of planning ahead of time, we can help you pack your vehicle efficiently with the following advice from our movers.

Self Packing Tips - Hall Lane Moving and Storage in Commack, NY

Self Packing Tip #1: Figure Out How Much Space You Have

Firstly, figure out how much space you have to work with by deciding who will be driving down with you. It’s always a good idea to have a companion with you to help navigate and share the driving. Of course, you’ll need a bit of room for a couple of bags at least. If you’re transporting pets, you’ll also need to consider how much space they’ll need for their carrier, food and other essential items.

Self-Packing Tip #2: Make Good Use of Extra Room in the Car

Next, consider the rest of the space in your car that won’t be used. Assuming there is still some left to transport items, figure out what personal, fragile or valuable belongings should come with you. Many items can be easily packed and secured in your car’s trunk. However, if you’re feeling anxious about transporting family heirlooms or expensive jewelry, for instance, then think about talking to your movers for their specialized, professional assistance.

Self-Packing Tip #3: Don’t Reduce Visibility with Overpacking

Lastly, while you may be tempted to shove in as many things as possible into your car, doing so poses a great safety risk. When too many things are in the way and you can’t see your rearview mirror or out your windows properly, these obstructions can really reduce visibility and create hazardous driving conditions.
