WE RECOMMEND


Have plenty of supplies

You'll need LOTS of boxes, probably more boxes than you think, and having enough boxes will make your life easier!. Have about 10 boxes set aside to use for last minute items on moving day, such as bedding, clothing, and cleaning supplies. You'll need strong plastic packing tape to close up the boxes securely. Use packing paper or bubble wrap to wrap and cushion household good. Again, you'll need lots more supplies than you think, so get extra so the packing can go smoothly and simply return any unused supplies after everything is packed.

 

Mark all the boxes

Designate a letter or number for each room in the new home, such as "K" or "1" for kitchen, "DR" or "2" for dining room, etc. In your new home put a matching sticker with the letter or number on the door to each room. Our movers will know where to place everything when they arrive at the destination. It's also helpful to post a big sign on the wall in the room where you want boxes stacked, ("Boxes here please") to keep them organized and out of the traffic areas.

 

Packing boxes

Limit boxes to a maximum weight of around 50 pounds to make handling easier and avoid injuries. Use small boxes for heavy items such as books and can goods and larger boxes for lighter, bulky items.
Wrap items carefully providing plenty of cushioning to absorb shock. It's best to use sturdy boxes that close all the way. Be sure that the boxes are firmly packed and they do not rattle or bend inward.

Kitchen Packing

A good technique when packing the kitchen is utilizing a dish pack box and start with dishes. Have your packing paper laying flat next to you, start with the biggest dishes. Grab one and place it over the pile of paper facing downwards, fold the paper upwards creating cushion instead of folding them nice and perfect, then place is next to you with the cushion side down and repeat the process until you have a nice stack. Then place the pile sideways into the dish pack box. Continue repeating the process with the smaller dishes until you have covered the first layer of the box. You can divide and create extra protection by adding a square piece of cardboard and also divide your next layer of fragile items like small bowls or glasses working your way up with lighter items. You can continue with dishes or platters in a new box so that you can distribute the weight accordingly.
