Get your move started with these great packing tips; find out what preparation you’ll need, types of boxes available and how to get organized. Read through our suggestions, we’ll help you make your packing easier and smoother.

  • Before you start, make sure you give yourself plenty of time; at least four to six weeks before your move date and plan carefully. Good planning and careful packing will save you time, money and a lot of hair pulling.
  • Get a pen and a record keeping notebook; write everything down on your moving list! You’ll appreciate yourself later. You’ll place a number on each box you pack and list the contents on your list.
  • Packed boxes should weigh less than 30 pounds so you can lift it later in case you may need extra space for new boxes.
  • Always pack heavier items on the bottom. Put socks, scarves and other small items in a same box – just make sure you keep pairs of socks together!
  • You’ll need strong plastic packing tape to close up the boxes securely.
  • Use packing paper or bubble wrap to wrap household good.
  • You’ll need lots more moving supplies than you think, so get extra so the packing can go smoothly.
  • You can buy different kinds of supplies from us, and always return unused boxes for a refund.
  • Always give special attention to pack those valuable possessions you have, such as grandparents’ antiques, fragile fine china, or art collection. You can move those first if possible.
