Follow these easy tips to simplify your moving experience

While it is recommended to set aside 8-12 weeks to pack, we realize that not everyone has 2 months to prepare. If you find yourself in a situation with little time to organize and prepare for your move, our experienced team has compiled a list of helpful tips to ease your packing process.

Packing Tip #1: Stock up on supplies

There's nothing more frustrating than interrupting a productive packing session to leave big supplies. When packing, try to keep heavier items on the bottom. Boxes should not exceed more than 50 pounds.

Packing Tip #2: Completely fill boxes

Socks, scarves, pillow cases, and other small, fabric items can fill your box without adding to its weight. Just remember to keep your socks in pairs to prevent frustration when unpacking!

Packing Tip #3: Don't stuff boxes

Make sure you seal all of your boxes and that the tops are flat. Overpacking a box can damage the contents.

Packing Tip #4: Mark your boxes

Be sure to keep an inventory of all your boxes and their contents. Should a box go missing, you'll be able to identify the missing contents quickly and have the information you need to file a claim.

Packing Tip #5: Keep clothing in dressers

With your clothing in your dresser, you won't have to sift through boxes when changing clothes. It is also a good idea to place your essentials in a "load last, unload first" box.

Packing Tip #6: Hang onto important records

Keep important documents on your person. If you do not feel comfortable moving them yourself, you may consider using a secure courier company.

Packing Tip #7: Pack like items together

Consider leaving your silverware on its tray and packing other kitchen utensils in the same box. Packing similar items together will make unpacking a bit easier.


Packing Tip #8: Fill free spots with lighter linens

This can be done when you're packing your washer or dryer, and also for the vegetable crisper in the fridge.
