Packing Tips

  • Do not over-pack boxes – the heavier the item, the smaller the box.
  • Start packing up the items you don’t need as soon as you know you are moving.
  • Avoid mixing items from different rooms in the same boxes.
  • Put detailed labels on tops and sides of all boxes.
  • Don’t interlock box tops. They must always be sealed with packing tape.
  • Pack a box of things that you will need immediately at your new location and make sure it is loaded last on the truck so that the contents will be immediately available.
  • To minimize the chance of breakage, pack and unpack over a padded surface so that if you do drop an item, it will land on a cushioned surface.
  • Lampshades and fine breakables shouldn’t be packed in newspaper because the ink can permanently stain.
