Packing Tips


Here is a list of 10 useful packing tips when moving your house

  1. Start finding boxes and cartons about a month or so prior to the move date. Grocery stores, department stores and especially wholesale stores are great sources for boxes, so request them in advance and they will most likely be willing to get rid of them. Another great source for moving boxes is Home Depot or Lowe’s. These stores sell boxes for packing cheaper than any moving company or box store.
  2. Start getting rid of items that will not be moved or packed. Have a garage sale or begin to items into storage that you will not be using.
  3. Gather all packing materials needed before starting to pack. Some useful packing materials include:  boxes tape, packing paper, packing tape, markers, and box cutter.
  4. When learning how to pack, be sure to pack room by room and label the boxes according to the content and which room it belongs in. This packing tip not only helps with the packing process but also with the un-packing process.
  5. Make sure all the necessary packaging tools available for the boxes. Packing dishes and fragile items can become a disaster if not enough padding has been used.
  6. When packing heavy items it is important to pack those into small boxes. Not only would the box become heavy but the bottom can fall out and damage the contents inside.
  7. When packing clothes that are on hangars, wardrobe boxes will be needed. Wardrobe boxes are usually about 4 feet tall and 2 feet by 2 feet around. These boxes can support two feet of hanging clothes.
  8. The most important part of packing tips is to have best moving company. For the process to be less stressful, it is in the best interest to plan it out over the course of a couple weeks.
  9. Use items such as towels and linens for padding. This eliminates the need to pack those goods while being efficient.
  10. Create a few boxes for easy access. These boxes are for items that are needed day to day and are to be opened first during the unpacking process.


Here are a few other packing tips when learning how to pack

Packing Tip: Plan out exactly what you are going to move into your new home and consider short-term and long-term storage options if needed.  When considering storage options, take into account length of time and total cost of storage vs. length of time in storage.  You’d be surprised how many people will spend thousands of dollars storing items that have very little value.


Packing Tip: Do not pack flammables and combustibles. Get rid of your petrol, paints, and empty the gasoline in your lawn mowers and weed whackers before moving. Also contact your local gas grill distributor for the safest method to drain your barbeque propane tank.


Packing Tip: For packing dishes, wrap them individually with packing paper, wrap 4-6 wrapped dishes together in a bundle. Be sure to stand them upright in a heavy duty box. Do NOT lay flat.  For larger platters and plates use your towels and other small linens for wrapping.
