Not knowing your needs
Not knowing how many boxes of what size you will need before start packing will make the complete process disorganized and stressed. So, first of all, consider your box needs. Many packers are not able to estimate the number of boxes accurately ending up in packing too much stuff in a box. So, take inventory of how much stuff do you want to take with you and then start packing.
Not wrapping items
If you have packing boxes, it does not mean you just have to put your items into boxes directly. Wrapping up items is necessary to transport them safely. Don’t try to save this time while making this big mistake. This a little time can end up costing higher by damaging your home belongings.
Not getting rid of the unwanted stuff

Not sealing liquid items effectively
You also have to transport liquid items when you move. Cardboard boxes can’t bear moisture, therefore, you can’t transport liquids in cardboard boxes. A little drop of the liquid in the card box can create big damage, therefore, it is important to seal liquid items. One small speed bump can spell the liquid material everywhere in the moving truck if not sealed properly.
Tip on sealing liquid items:
Open the bottle that contains the liquid. Add a layer of plastic wrap over its opening and then screw it again. Then use another layer of plastic cover around the complete bottle of liquid.
