Moving Tips


When it comes to packing up your belongings, it's smart to think ahead. Moving and packing tips and strategies as well as list some questions you should ask before hiring professional movers.

Develop a Strategy

  • Start packing the parts of your home you don't use every day, such as the basement and attic, well before moving day. Packing for moving will take longer than you anticipate.
  • If you find an item, you're unsure about keeping, start a pile of things to review at a later date.
  • Scale down by tossing things out or donating unused items to charit
  • Designate a central location to keep packing boxes, tape, markers, stickers, bubble wrap and other moving and packing supplies to cut back on the number of times you will have to search for them.

Pack room-by-room

Focus on one area of a room at a time and don't mix items from different rooms in one box. Don't box up everything. You should personally transport money, important papers, legal documents (wills, passports. etc.), and valuables. Make packing easier by decided what doesn't need to be packed.

Don't Pack These Items

  • Money, securities, keys, valuable papers or jewelry. Keep them with you.
  • Flammable items: aerosol cans, paints, gasoline, etc.
  • Open liquids, soaps, polishes or medicines

How to pack a box

  • Choosing moving boxes: Consider what you're packing and try to control box weight. If you're doing books, use a small box. If you're working on sweaters, a larger box can be used.
  • Prepare the box: Tape the bottom, then line it with crumpled tissue paper or newspaper. Stack and fill in the box with your stuff, then top it with more tissue.
  • Wrap Fragile Items: Use cardboard dividers, tissue paper bubble wrap when packing for a move. To prevent small items from being thrown out accidentally, wrap them in brightly colored tissue paper or a labeled plastic bag.
  • Seal & Label: Tape the top and mark it with a descriptive label. You can print the name of the room the box belongs to or give more description to help with the unpacking process.

Dishware and Glasses

  • Use double corrugated heavy-duty box
  • Make a cushion after each level
  • Wrap each piece individually.
  • Don't place one layer of dishware directly on top of another; separate with a layer of stuffed paper.
  • Cushion the top and sides with paper to prevent shifting. The steadier the contents, the less the chance of damages is.


  • Put hanging clothes in wardrobe boxes.
  • Place shoes in medium size boxes. Use paper to protect and keep pairs separated.


  • Use a picture box
