Packing Preparations

Packing Preparations

Here are a few general suggestions that will make packing easier:

  • Plan how you will pack. Pack items first that you don’t use often.
  • Start packing as soon as you find out you’re moving (A little each day will save you from stresses of moving day).
  • Never pack flammable items or non-allowable items.
  • Use generous amounts of paper inside the carton on the bottom and top. This will act as a cushion and protect your items
  • List contents and room on the outside of the carton (Front of the box works the best).
  • Clearly mark “Fragile” on the outside of cartons.
  • Use clean newsprint paper. Old newspapers may work, but use them carefully because the ink may rub off onto your items. Clean “newsprint” paper is available upon request.
  • Write “Open First” on cartons containing essential items such as cooking utensils, toiletries, etc.
  • Separate breakables and non-breakables.
  • Pack all cartons tightly.
  • Use professional packing tape. Masking tape isn’t strong enough to support fully packed cartons.
