Pro Moving & Storage Tips
May is the start of moving season so our friends at Duck® Brand have shared some solutions to help homeowners throughout the painstaking moving and storage process...which many of us can relate to! The average American has moved five times in their life so far, moving an average of 26 boxes each time, according to a recent study by Duck® Brand. That’s a lot of stuff! Here’s how to do it like a pro...
Simplify shopping! In order to move, you’re going to need supplies and Duck® Brand has a new online moving calculator at DuckBrand.com.
All you have to do is input some basic details about your home like how many bedrooms and baths you have, and Duck® Brand will provide you with a shopping list to print or share. In addition to essentials like Bubble Wrap® brand cushioning and a stronger, more durable packing tape like Duck® MAX packaging tape, another essential tool you should check out is the new Duck Pack & Track™ app-based labeling system. It’s the smart solution for packing, unpacking, storing and finding things.
Now, if you’re like most Americans who take an average of 182 days to finally unpack the last box after moving into a new home…or, one of the 67 percent of Americans who have difficulty finding items in storage – often digging through dusty boxes to find what you need, this innovation will be a life and time saver.
Pack & Track uses a smartphone app and unique labels to keep track of all your box’s contents. It’s so easy to use, and you’ll never wonder what’s packed in your boxes again. Here’s how it works:
Once you’ve purchased your labels, the next step is to download the Duck Pack & Track™ app available for Apple or Android devices.
Then, simply place a Duck Pack & Track™ label on a box, plastic bin or other smooth-surface container.
Scan the unique QR code.
Name the box and log its contents and add its location!
And logging contents is easy – either type the items manually or use the voice command to speak into the app. Voila!
Then, once you’re ready to find something stored away (like holiday decorations), simply speak or type the item needed into the app, and the box name and location will be provided.
That means no more digging through tons of boxes!
And what I like to do for added convenience is take and save photos of items placed in each container.
So whether you’re moving across the country or just down the block, moving no longer needs to be a source of stress. With the right supplies, like these from Duck® Brand, and a few helpful packing tips, you’ll enjoy a quick and easy move.
To start packing your way you can pick up The Duck Pack & Track™ system with 40 labels at Walmart for $14.99 or visit DuckPackandTrack.com for more information!
