Packing Tips

When Packing: Begin with rooms of the house you don't use as much and finish with the kitchen. Place packed boxes in the garage or empty first-floor room for movers to have easy access.

Always Tape Boxes: Don't interlock the tops. Never use duct tape - use packing tape.

Clearly Label: All boxes on the top and side.

Don't use Boxes without Tops: No tops make it impossible to stack properly in the truck.

Think Weight: Pack all of your boxes full to the top and tape them shut. But in the case of heavier items such as books, we recommend using smaller boxes that can be manageable to lift.

How to Pack Boxes for Moving - Dishes and China: Stuff glassware and china with tissue or packing paper (if you like, you
can purchase this from Watson.) If you use newspaper upon arrival at the final destination. (Boxes should be clearly marked: FRAGILE)

• Crumple your packing material between each row of dishes for extra padding. Also, place packing material and place it along the bottom and sides of the packing container.
• Wrap each dish individually with packing material.
• Be sure to stand your dishes on end as they are stronger in these positions.
• Place the heaviest items on the packing container and the lightest on top.
• Any void space in glasses, cups, bowls, or other fragile ware should be filled with packing material. These items should also be
placed facing the bottom of the container.
• Be sure to pack the container full to the top, leaving about 3 to 4 inches of the top to be filled with crumpled packing material. Then securely tape the box closed.
• Please Note: It is recommended to NOT use Newsprint to pack hand-painted items. Newsprint can imprint and adhere to these items permanently.
• Downsize! Consider a yard sale, or giving items like clothing, books, magazines, furniture, etc away io local preschools, nursing homes, churches, or Women's shelters. There are many people in need and you could do far better giving them your excess than packing it all up and moving it!
