10 Packing Tips & Tricks

Master the Art of Efficient, Organized and Secure Packing for a Stress-Free Moving Experience

1. Begin by decluttering.

Start by decluttering, and make it a joyful trip – with your moving day approaching, there’s no better opportunity to think about what you want in your new home.

2. Sort items by category

When you mix books and kitchenware, you’ll have empty areas inside the boxes. Organize the boxes by type: books, clothes, wires, picture frames, etc.

3. Make a packing list.

Examine everything you own and prepare to label every box. Begin by deciding how you will pack and what items you will need.

4. Only bring some things!

Certain goods should not be packed when moving because they are unsafe to fill yourself or prohibited by law. Although some of these suggestions may seem simple, many people have had to learn what not to bring the hard way. This guidance will keep you from repeating the same errors.

5. Use 6-pound tissue paper.

When packaging fragile things, only use unprinted tissue paper. Not attempt to use the newspaper. The ink gets everywhere and can stain your clothes. Wrap dishes, vases, and art objects with 10lb packing paper for added protection—perfect for packaging incredibly fragile and costly things without taking up too much space in a package.

6. Build a small box for necessities.

You may have a few days between leaving your previous home and moving into your new one. Set aside a box for necessities, including dishes, cups, flatware, dishwashing materials, and small gadgets.

7. Small box for heavy stuff, a large box for light items

It may seem illogical, but putting heavy objects in oversized boxes may cause the box to break. This rule is essential but will make the moving process go much more smoothly.

8. Make use of a wardrobe box.

Our wardrobe boxes allow you to conveniently hang your clothes while leaving room for shoes and other accessories at the bottom. It’s made of Heavy Duty cardboard for enhanced strength and stability, and it has a convenient front access panel and integrated hand holes for added convenience.

9. Tape the bottom of the box shut.

Tape the bottom of a cardboard box before putting anything inside. If you don’t, the base will flap over, and the box will collapse when lifted. Never interlock the box flaps since it weakens them. Wait until the last minute to check all the boxes since there is always something else that you may have overlooked. This will help you gain a better understanding of your move.

10. Take a photograph of the inside.

That will take a second and save you much energy and time when you need that specific item in your new home.

How Many Boxes Do I Require?

You can rely on us to identify the best options for you.

Check that you have the necessary supplies.

Excellent packing labels

Boxes for china and dishes

They should be used for heavy items such as flatware, cooking tools, pots and pans, and drawer contents.

Boxes of linen

Put larger, lighter items like baking pans, dish racks, or small appliances in these.

Boxes for books

Our book boxes are larger and more durable than other vendors. Heavy things such as CDs, photo albums, DVDs, flatware, and cutlery sets are moved and stored in book boxes.

Several large black markers

The most basic approach for labeling boxes is to use a black marker. This allows you to identify boxes by room and number them to correspond with your inventory list.

6-pound tissue paper or 12-pound packing paper

Wrap fragile goods with unprinted tissue paper. We recommend wrapping dishes, flowers, and art objects with professional Packing Paper for extra protection—perfect for packing extremely fragile goods without too much space in a box.

Dividers made of cardboard

These useful dividers slide into boxes to protect glasses and wine bottles. You can also use them in the kitchen for other glass objects. Make sure that the walls you purchase fit appropriately into your boxes.
