3 Most Important Packing Tips
1. Use quality boxes for moving to protect valuables.
-Strong cartons designed for transporting belongings will not crush when multiple boxes are stacked on top of each other in a truck; as long as they are packed properly.
2. Fill your cartons to the top and fill in the gaps with crumpled newspaper
Any box is stronger when it is filled to the top. Make sure they are completely filled and paper fills in the gaps.
3. Put most of your belongings in the medium all purpose size. Only put light weight items like pillows in extra large moving boxes.
People have a tendancy to think bigger is better with everything. This is not true with cartons. The largest box in your moving kit is the pillow moving box. Only pillows and very lightweight items should be placed in this box. Otherwise, the box is too heavy for movers to lift and it is not safe to move or store your items.
