Packing & Storage Tips

Careful packing and being aware of a few precautions can go a long way toward preventing damage and making your moving experience a positive one.

  • Use same-size boxes to make stacking easier
  • Don’t put items that could be damaged by moisture in plastic bags
  • Fill each box completely and use paper or bubble wrap to fill holes
  • Don’t make your boxes to heavy to actually move
  • Use different kinds of boxes for different things, like books, clothing and glassware
  • Wrap dishes individually in bubble wrap
  • Wrap framed art in bubble wrap
  • Store framed artwork and mirrors vertically
  • Label boxes clearly and mark certain ones as “fragile”
  • Take apart furniture items when applicable and remove lampshades to minimize damage
  • Cover furniture with sheets or blankets for extra protection
  • Place heavy items on the bottom and lighter items on top
  • Place less essential items in the back of your unit
  • Leave room between boxes and items so that you can walk through
