Packing Up Your Items

Sometimes hiring movers can be a big help when moving, but handling the packing yourself will ensure your most prized possessions are in the best of care. You can rest easy knowing you packed your items well and if you hire movers, their chances of breaking anything are lessened. Here are a few tips that can help you make the most of your packing.

Use only unprinted newsprint paper to wrap items. Regular newspapers and colored tissue papers are messy and they may bleed ink on your possessions. Use only white packing paper to wrap all items.

Use clean cartons designed for moving. Boxes obtained from grocery or liquor stores are not always clean, and may not withstand the weight of the items that you’ll be putting in them. Also, their odd sizes tend to make loading more difficult.

Unpack breakables over the box you’re taking them out of; that way, if you happen to drop an item, it will land on some packing material, thereby reducing its chance of breakage.

You should personally transport irreplaceable photos, financial papers and assets (bank checks, insurance policies, stock certificates, etc.), legal documents (wills, passports. etc.), valuables, jewelry, coin and stamp collections, etc.), and medical and family history records.
