Packing for an Efficient Move

Anyone who’s moved before knows what a hassle it can be. However, there are certain steps you can take to ensure a smooth move:

  • Pack one room at a time and try to keep similar items together. Mark the room name on the outside of the box.
  • Pack boxes firmly to prevent shifting.
  • Don’t pack flammable goods or heat-sensitive items.
  • Wrap items inpidually and place a layer of crushed paper or bubble wrap in the bottom of the box for cushioning.
  • Place heavier items on the bottom and lighter ones on the top.
  • Put heavy items in smaller boxes so they’re easier to carry.
  • Set aside a box devoted to things you’ll need right away (change of clothes, telephone, toys, toiletries, etc.)
  • Use towels and linens to pad boxes filled with fragile items. Mark these boxes “fragile.”
  • Drain fluids from power and yard tools so they don’t leak.
  • Try not to exceed 50 pounds in each box.
