Advice on Packing Boxes:
- • Pack books, files, or DVDs vertically
- • Wrap fragile items like picture frames in packing paper before placing in the box.
- • When packing liquids, always tape the lids shut
- • Things like pens, pencils, or paperclips should be placed in a plastic bag or wrapped in packing.
- • When packing kitchen knives, place the knife in a guard first whenever possible
- • Any lampshade small enough to fit inside of a book box should be packed in this box.
Tips on Moving Boxes
While no move is the same, there are a few basic tips that can make your experience a bit easier.
- • Always put heavier items on the bottom of the box while keeping lighter items on top.
- • Fill in any empty spaces in moving boxes with wadded up packing paper, towels or clothing. This will prevent items inside from moving. Additionally, movers will not move boxes that are half packed or loosely packed.
- • Make packing and unpacking easier by keeping all room items together and not mixing rooms in the same box.
- • Label every box with the room it's meant for and what's inside.
