Packing Tips

  • Use quality boxes that are strong enough to hold the items stored.
  • Label all of your boxes well when packing to make it easier for you to find things when you need them. Remember to mark all boxes containing delicate items as “fragile.”
  • When selecting the right box, keep in mind the weight as well as the size of the items you are packing. Use small boxes for heavier items such as books and larger boxes for lighter items such as blankets and pillows.
  • Never overfill a box. Bulging boxes may not sit flat and are difficult to store.
  • Use quality tape to seal your boxes.
  • Framed pictures and mirrors can be stored in specially made cardboard containers.
  • If you plan to store appliances, make sure that they are clean and dry.
  • When packing hanging clothes, use a wardrobe box with a hanging bar.
  • Folded clothes can be packed in boxes or suitcases.
  • All fragile or delicate items should be wrapped individually in paper, bubble wrap or foam wrap for added protection.
  • Wrap small appliances when packing them and position them securely in a box to keep them from shifting during your move.
  • If you disassemble any furniture, place the nuts, bolts and screws in a small Ziploc bag. You can tape the bag to the furniture to keep all pieces together.
  • Remove furniture legs if possible, and wrap in bubble wrap.
