6 tips for packing boots before your move
Packing boots for a move is a difficult task. Because they are bulky and irregularly shaped, they do not fit together like dishes or books. Here are 6 tips for packing your boots before our move.

Having trouble packing your boots? We understand your concern and have compiled a list of tips for packing your boots before a move. You can contact our moving company for more packing services. 

Here are six tips for packing boots before your move.

  1. SORT AND CLEAN 

We recommend removing the boots that are no longer in use before beginning the packing process. Look for boots in good condition and sort through the ones you haven't used in years and begin cleaning them. After cleaning, sort them by new, old, color, size, and style. You will save time and energy this way. 

  1. DRY THEM THOROUGHLY

Drying your boots thoroughly is very important before you start packing them using packing essentials. If your boots get wet, there's a possibility they'll develop a foul odor, and mold could very well grow inside especially if they're packed in polythene bags. If you're in a hurry, consider using a hair dryer to speed up the process, this will help the warm air circulate around the boots. 

  1. PREPARE FOR PACKING BY STUFFING

You might have come across situations where boots lose their shape as a result of the weight of the other boots in the packing box. To avoid such conditions, stuffing crumbled packing paper or socks into the boots can maintain their shape and protect them from being damaged by others pairs. Never stuff newspapers inside the boots as the ink can run all over the boots and damage them.

  1. USE THE ORIGINAL BOXES 

Packing your shoes in their original shoe boxes is one of the best ways to avoid having them crushed when moving. To avoid scratches on more expensive or designer boots, wrap each pair in packing paper or stretch wrap before placing it in a box. If using cardboard boxes, make sure they are perfectly clean, fully dry, and sturdy enough for the load.

  1. WRAP EACH PAIR WITH PACKING PAPER

You will need packing paper to wrap your precious boots before packing them into moving boxes. Packing paper provides safety and security while also protecting against further damage. It is simple to fold and wrap around any shape or size of boots and make sure to use clean and quality packing paper to avoid any spills and stains. 

  1. ARRANGE THE BOOTS ACCORDING TO THE SIZE

When packing your boots in moving boxes, place the heavier ones on the bottom and the lightweight ones on top to help even out the overall weight of the box and also lowers the risk of damage.
