1. Use the correct size boxes

It is surely a common sense rule or rule, but you should put heavy items, such as books, in small boxes and light items, such as cushions, pillows, or sheets, in larger ones. Large boxes full of heavy objects are one of the common complaints from movers. Not only do they make work difficult, but they are also more likely to break.

2. Fill the bottom of the boxes with heavy items and place the lighter items on top.

3. Do not leave empty spaces or holes in the boxes

Fill in the gaps with clothing, towels, or packing paper. Movers maynot want to move boxes that are loose or unbalanced.

4. Avoid mixing items from different rooms in the same box.

It will make packing faster and unpacking much easier.

5. Label each box with the room for which it is intended and a description of its contents.

This will help you and those involved in the move to know where each box belongs in its new place. Numbering each box and keeping an inventory list in a small notebook or on your smartphone is a good way to keep track of what you've packed, and to make sure you have everything when you unpack.

6. Cover the boxes well

Use a couple of pieces of tape to close the top and bottom seams, then use one of the pro's techniques: put duct tape around the top and bottom edges of the box, where the stress is concentrated.

7. If you move art objects, ask the carrier about special packaging

Never wrap oil paintings in plain paper; It will stick. For framed images behind glass, tape an X over the glass to strengthen it and hold it together if it breaks.

8. Packing dishes

When you pack your plates, wrap wrapping paper around each one, then wrap packages of five or six with more paper. Pack dishes on their sides, never flat. And it uses a lot of bunched paper as top and bottom filler. The cups and bowls can be placed one inside the other, with paper in between, and three or four can be wrapped in a package.

9. Consider other items that will need special treatment.

Treat TVs like any other piece of furniture, wrapping them in padded pads. Plasma TVs require special wooden boxes for shipping if you don't have the original box, and it can be damaged if laid flat.

And remember...

Vayeyo's will guide you!!!
