Packing tips

Avoid mixing items from different rooms in the same box.

Use only small boxes for books. They get heavy very fast.

Never use printed newspaper to wrap fine china.

Always stack dishes upwards when packing.

Pack important and sentimental documents separately to be easily reachable. For instance: children’s health records, passports, family records, etc.

The heavier the item, the smaller the box.

Do not pack with food or use supermarket boxes, you never know what little critter is hiding inside the boxes.

Do not use used boxes. You do not know if the box will be strong enough to support your possessions.

Never use duct tape instead use packing tape.

Clearly label all boxes on top and side.

As you take apart furniture and other items make sure to tape all parts to the main base.

Try to pack all electronic equipment, like stereos in their original boxes. Otherwise use bubble wrap when packing these items.

Start packing items you will not need ahead of time.

Always pack and unpack breakables over a padded surface.

Always use tape for boxes. Do not interlock the tops.

Moving tips

For large appliances be sure to check your owner’s manuals to see if there are special instructions for moving.

Do not try to get rid of your children’s favorite things before the move. Kids sometimes have a hard time dealing with the move itself.

By law, a moving company can not transport hazardous materials such as gasoline, bottled gases and other flammables, ammunition and explosives.

Pack a box of essential items that you will need immediately after the move.

Clean out closets, the attic, and the basement as soon as you decide it is time to move.

Make a “survival closet” of things for the last cleanup before you move out – broom, dust cloth, dust pan, mop.

Remember to get snacks for move day.

Schedule disconnect times for about a week before your move day to save some money.

Cancel newspapers, cable, pest control, cleaning help, lawn services about a week before the move.

Mail in or update online your change of address forms about week before your move date.

Clean your stove before you move out.

The day before your move, defrost the fridge.

Make sure to get enough cash to get you through move day.

Take time to say goodbye to friends and neighbors before your busy move day.

If you are depending on friends and family to help you move, have a back-up plan if they do not show.
