How to Pack

Before placing items in boxes, make sure they are adequately wrapped in newspaper.
Place a cushion layer of crumpled paper at the bottom of the box.
Always pack heavier items at the bottom of the box.

As you pack, layer your good, packing the same or similar-sized items in one layer.
Pack boxes as tightly as possible to minimize movement.
Do not pack higher than 50 lbs in a box.
Identify your box by contents and by room.
Be sure to identify fragile boxes.
Toilet paper, toothpaste, brushes, etc., are essentials you may need upon arrival at your new home. Pack a box with these types of items and load it on the van last so that it will be unloaded first.
Irreplaceable photos, financial papers, etc., should be personally transported by you during the move.
Unpack breakables over the box you’re taking them out of. That way, if you happen to drop an item, it will land on some packing material, reducing chances of breakage.
Start packing several boxes each day a few weeks before your move.
Pack on a room-by-room basis and do one area of the room at a time.
To prevent small items from being last, wrap them in brightly colored tissue paper before placing them in a box.You don’t have to pack and move alone.
