Talk with one of our associates about the full line of packing and unpacking services that we provide. We have provided a few tips below to help you with your move.
- Make sure that you have the proper type and size of box for everything you have to pack.
- Assemble your boxes and tape all seams securely with a sturdy, commercial grade tape.
- Put crumbled newsprint or packing paper in the bottom of each carton of breakables. Note: using newsprint will stain your hands and packed items that it
- touches. It is always cleaner to use regular, plain packing paper.
- Put large and heavy items in the boxes first, followed by smaller and lighter items that can be used as filler.
- Use a layer of crumpled paper as the top layer on breakables.
- Securely tape the top seams of the box.
- Clearly label each box (on sides of box) with the room the box will go in at your new residence. Mark boxes that contain breakable items as “FRAGILE” and
- mark boxes that contain items you will need right away as “UNPACK FIRST.”
- Be sure to pack glass tops, marble and artwork in mirror cartons.
- Pack lamps and ceramic statues in heavy duty dish packs.
- Remember lampshades need packing too.
