Helpful Packing Tips

  • Boxes Are Sturdy, Stack Well, & Are Generally Better than Plastic Bags for Storage
  • Plastic Bags Can Trap Humidity & Cause Mildew Damage
  • Fill Boxes to Capacity as Half-Empty Boxes Can Collapse or Damage Items in Transport
  • Use Specialty Boxes for Items Such as Artwork, Mirrors, Electronics, Lamps, Dishes/Glasses, Mattresses, Sporting Goods, & Musical Equipment
  • Consider If Items Will Need to Be Frequently Accessed & Store These Items in the Front of the Unit
  • Distribute Weight Evenly in Boxes & Make Sure No Box Is Too Heavy
  • Stack Heavier Items on the Bottom & More Fragile Items on Top to Prevent Damage
  • Clearly Label Items on More than One Side for Easy Identification & Mark "Fragile" on Boxes Containing Breakable Items
  • Pack Books Flat to Prevent Spine Damage
  • Prepare Large Appliances for Storage
  • Defrost Refrigerators & Freezers to Avoid Water Damage & Mildew -- Tie or Tape Doors During Transport but Leave Ajar for Storage
  • Drain & Tie Down Hoses & Cords of Washing Machines
  • Wipe Insides of Appliances with Baking Soda to Keep Dry
  • A Little Extra Room in a Unit Makes Moving around Much Easier & Allows Room for Unplanned Items
