Packing Tips

  • Plan Ahead. Gather up plenty of sturdy, corrugated cartons, packing paper, bubble wrap, sealing tape and marker pens, along with any furniture covers.
  • Seal Tightly. Tightly sealing boxes with packing tape will prevent dust from entering.
  • Wrap Furniture Legs. Wrap furniture legs with protective bubble wrap, furniture covers or pads to prevent scratching. Leave slipcovers on upholstered chairs and cover them with plastic chair covers. Tape or tie bed rails together. Mark the pieces for easier assembly later. Place covers or plastic bags on mattresses to keep them clean during storage.
  • Label Boxes. Label boxes on all sides for easy identification. Keep a list (as well as pictures and descriptions) at your home or office for reference. Mark clearly all boxes containing fragile items. Make sure fragile boxes are placed on top of heavier, less delicate boxes.
  • Pack Inside Nooks and Crannies. Use valuable space inside dresser drawers and larger appliances, such as stoves and refrigerators, to store small items such as towels, linens and small, fragile items. Secure items in drawer by filling empty spaces with towels or packing paper.
  • Use Same Size Boxes. Pack as much as you can in the same size boxes. Fill boxes tightly, but take care to neither over pack nor under pack. (Bulging cartons tip when stacked, while half full boxes tend to collapse). Use wadded up newsprint, bubble wrap, rags, towels, or blankets to fill in empty spaces. For maximum protection seal cartons with tape.
  • Pack Heavier Items in Smaller Boxes. Pack heavy items such as books and tools in small boxes. For easier handling limit the weight of all cartons, regardless of size, to 30 lbs. or less.
  • Clean and Dry Appliances. Clean and dry appliances before storing. Secure all movable parts with paper, or wedge and wrap a paper pad around each item for protection. During transport tape all doors shut, but remember to wedge them open for storage.
  • Pack Books Flat. To protect the spines of any bookings being packed, pack them flat and line cartons with plastic filling any empty spaces with paper.
  • Use a lot of Paper! Use lots of paper to pack dishes and glassware. Place a layer of packing paper inside the bottom and top of cartons. Wrap each dish and glass separately and cushion them with crumpled paper.
  • Use Wardrobe Boxes. Hang clothes and draperies in wardrobe boxes.
  • Pack Lamps Individually. Pack lamps and lampshades in individual boxes. Use plenty of clean paper or clothing for padding.
  • Pad Mirrors. Pad mirrors and paintings with paper. Place them in special mirror packs or large boxes; mark boxes.
