list of packing tips
as well as some
advice on how to
pack common items.
Small appliances should be wrapped individually and packed in a carton cushioned with packing paper. Make sure cords are wrapped and labeled.
Glassware and ceramics should be cushioned generously with the proper padding. Carefully place these items on near the center of the box. Label each box “FRAGILE”.
Make sure all dressers and other furniture drawers are empty. Damage is more likely to occur if your furniture is holding extra weight.
Clothes should be left on hangers and go directly into wardrobe boxes. Folded clothing and smaller items should be placed in clean cartons or suitcases.
Kitchen utensils should be clean and wrapped individually. Durable and heavy pieces should be placed at the bottom with lighter items on top.
Books should be packed in strong, small cartons. Lay books flat in the carton, alternating the spine and open side of the book in order to prevent damage.
We’re a full-service moving company, and that means we can do it all! From packing, to furniture disassembly and reassembly, to loading and hauling – let us help you make your move easy!
Pictures, paintings, and plaques should be wrapped individually. Paper should never be permitted to touch the surface of an oil (or similar) painting.
If possible, pack shoes in their original shoeboxes and place in a carton or at the bottom of a wardrobe box. If not, individually wrap them to prevent abrasive damage.
If you`ve saved the original carton and padding material, it’s best to repack TVs with those. If not, pad it sufficiently with bubble wrap before placing it into a strong box.
