Top 10 Packing Tips
We put together this list of top ten packing tips to make your move easy!
Avoid storing items in plastic bags, as they are less sturdy and absorb moisture.
Pack items in similar same size boxes to aid in stacking.
Make sure all items including clothing, blankets, drapery and furniture are clean before packing them away to prevent germs, dirt and odor from being spread to a new location.
Don't make boxes too heavy, by using larger boxes for light things and smaller boxes for the heavier things.
Stack books flat to protect the spine.
Protect your framed mirrors and artwork by wrapping them in bubble wrap and storing them vertically.
Label all boxes clearly on each side with a short list of inventory to stay organized.
Polish your wood before packing for additional protection from the elements.
For valuable items such as electronics, paper materials, and furniture, consider using a climate controlled storage unit to keep them protected and in good condition.
