The loss of a child can be devastating for a parent. Having to go by their room each and every day can bring up old memories and make it even harder to move on from the mourning process and start to live your life again. Many parents eventually decide that it is best to pack up their child's belongings so that they can use their room in another way. Packing up the items may be too difficult for a parent to do on their own though. A packing company can be hired to handle the packing process for the parents though. The following guide walks you through the best way to have a packing company pack a child's belongings after they have passed.
Not Everything Has to Be Packed
When the packers are packing up the items that are to be removed from the room, it is important to know that not every item has to be packed away. You can choose a few of your favorite items to display on a bookshelf or store in a trunk near your bed so you can touch them, smell them, or simply hold them when you need to. Inform the movers of any items that you do not want packed away and they will be able to hold those items to the side when they are packing.
Proper Sorting of the Items
Be sure to explain to the packers how important it is for them to pack like items together. When you are looking for something in particular, being able to look in one box for all of your child's stuffed animals, or personal effects will make the process much easier for you.
Proper Labeling of the Boxes
Be sure the packers take the time to label each and every box in detail. You do not want to have to search through every box that you have stored to find the one or two items you want to see. Labeling the boxes allows you to easily find what you are looking for and allows for the items to be organized in a neat and orderly way.
With everything properly sorted and all boxes labeled, you can view your child's belongings anytime you choose and know exactly where the items are in the boxes quickly and easily. You do not have to move the items to a storage facility. You can simply store them in your attic or basement so that you can easily get to them whenever you need to.
