Packing Preparation:

  • Stemware
  • Silverware
  • Clothing and Shoes
  • Pillows and other soft goods
  • Lamps and shades
  • Stereos and other equipment
  • Statues and Figurines
  • Reading material
  • Bottles
  • Computer equipment
  • Glass and mirrors

To make packing much simpler, consider the following packing tips:

  • Make a packing plan, packing unused goods first
  • Right after you know you are moving, start packing
  • Refrain from packing any non-allowable or flammable items
  • For added protection use as much paper as possible in the carton
  • List the room and content on the exterior of the crate
  • Write ‘fragile’ wherever needed
  • Only use newspapers that are new so the ink doesn’t rub off
  • Use strong packing tape. Masking tape cannot support full cartons
  • Separate the fragile items from the non-breakable ones
  • Mark crates with essential goods like toiletries and cooking utensils
  • Pack all cartons securely
