  1. Weigh boxes accordingly: Place the heaviest items in the bottom of boxes so that they can stabilize the box for transport. Putting heavy items in the top of the box will often cause tipping and damages as well as difficulty with transport to and from the truck.
  2. Seal all boxes: be sure to seal up all boxes to ensure that they remain closed and your items don’t end up lost. Boxes should often be sealed with packing tape instead of duct tape or masking tape. Packing tape provides a stronghold and is fairly simple to open on your arrival for unpacking.
  3. Don’t skimp on packing supplies: We can provide you with boxes and packing supplies for your move. Buying inexpensive boxes or simply finding reclaimed boxes and repairing them can lead to damages. Always use high-quality packing supplies to protect your valuables and be sure to wrap glassware, figurines and mirrors appropriately.
  4. Plan ahead: If you are going to be packing for your move be sure to pack 6 to 8 weeks ahead so that you can get rid of various items in your home as well as pack up some of the items that you don’t normally use to save time later.
  5. Create an inventory: Our packing experts can keep you organized with the help of inventories on all of your boxes. Creating your own inventory for the contents in each box is important for unpacking and finding all of your valuables.
  6. Ask us for help: As professional movers we can always provide you with support unpacking valuable items. We can provide packing services on a per item basis and if you need us to bring extra supplies for valuables we can work at providing you with extra levels of protection for your most valuable items.
