Packing Tips


  • Use the right boxes for the right items. You should place your most valuable items in sturdy boxes with reinforced bottoms. This will shield your valuables from any damage that could have occurred from a flimsy box.

  • Use sheets or blankets to protect your pictures or other delicate objects. Also, when packing these items it is a good idea to place them vertically rather than stacked on top of each other.

  • Be sure to mark the boxes containing fragile items. The mover will be sure to be extra careful with these boxes, they may also advise you to repack the box if they feel that it is not sturdy enough.

  • Pack heavy items in small boxes. Generally, if you can't lift the box, you have put too much in the box.

  • Label your boxes. Make sure you not only know what is inside each box, but also where the box is supposed to go. It is also a good idea to mark the boxes that you will need to open first.

  • Host a garage sale or give goods away to a charity. This is a good way to lighten your load and help others at the same time.

  • Start your pack early! Pack a little at a time or even one room at a time.

  • Use bubble wrap or Styrofoam peanuts to pack your most delicate items. You can also use the bubble wrap to cover items that you don't want to get scratched.

  • Be careful where you use tape. Avoid taping painted furniture or wood, the sticky residue the tape leaves behind can sometimes ruin the finish of your furniture.

  • Pack inexpensive clothing and other items such as sheets or stuffed animals in large garbage bags.

  • Pack your computer using bubble wrap. Label each cord so you know where to connect them to. It is also a good idea to make backup copies of your files just in case anything goes wrong during the move.

  • For extremely delicate goods it is a good idea to use two boxes. Use a large box and place Styrofoam peanuts inside. Then place the object that you want to pack inside the smaller box, also fill this box with Styrofoam peanuts.

  • Valuable items such as stock certificates, wills, jewelry are very hard to replace. Consider packing these in separate boxes and transporting these items yourself.
