PACKING TIPS

Packing can be an exhausting task when moving, especially when you’ve been living in your home for a long time. Putting everything together in different boxes and deciding what to keep vs. throw out can be even more challenging. However, with the right tools and tips, you can make the whole experience a little less of a burden.

Get Organized

The more organized you are when packing; the easier it will be for you when it’s time to unpack. You can begin organizing your belongings by avoiding mixing items from different rooms in the same box. Use the right boxes for your items – for example: use wardrobe boxes for your closets, making it easier to pack. The kitchen will most likely take the longest time to pack so be sure to give yourself enough time to do it correctly. Make sure to label your boxes for where you want them to go, and not where they came from to avoid confusion.

Breakables

Items such as china and other kitchenware may need extra protection. Be sure to use loads of packing paper as you can never have enough. Start with the heaviest items at the bottom and build your way up, using crumpled paper before and after each layer. An important thing to note is to never pack your breakables flat; make sure they are packed on their sides.

Clothing

Use a wardrobe box to pack all your clothing. This way, they will be kept neat and ready to load into your new closet.. Wardrobe boxes will also allow you to hang your clothes properly, instead of folding them. As for clothes in drawers, it is often best to just leave them in dressers.

Electronics

In order to effectively pack electronics, it is best if you use the original boxes for them. However, if you don’t have the original packaging, use cartons, and packing paper to wrap things up. If any disassembling is required, be sure to keep all cords that were connected to the device separately and label them. To minimize damage, you can wrap your electronics in linen or clean paper. Modern electronics are increasingly susceptible to damage from static electricity, consider using an anti static bag, or wrap.

Other Suggestions
  • Don’t leave empty space in any of the boxes you utilize. Fill gaps with extra clothing, packing paper, or other such things. Pack cartons evenly, without putting excessive weight on one side.
  • Use the palm of your hand to seal the tape after applying, to ensure it is fully sealed onto the container. Consider special crating for things such as expensive art, fragile objects, etc.
