Moving tips

Get your move started with these great packing tips; find out what supplies you'll need, types of boxes available and how to get organized. With the following guides and suggestions, you'll find packing isn't as hard as you first imagined.

 

Where To Start?

If you're doing your own packing, make sure you give yourself plenty of time; at least six weeks before your move date and plan carefully. Be smart, safe and efficient! Careful planning and packing will save you time, money and a lot of hair pulling.

 

Packing Quick Tips

Use these quick tips to make your packing go a little smoother and faster and you'll be surprised just how easy it is to get your home ready before the movers arrive.

 

Packing Supplies

To make sure your household goods arrive at your new home without a scratch, start with purchasing the right packing supplies. This is an area where you can cut down on cost, if necessary; just remember that buying the right supplies from the beginning will save you time and energy.

 

Packing Major Appliances

Moving companies will insist that all major appliances are prepared before they arrive and most offer a professional service that will prepare major appliances for you for a fee. While it may seem pretty simple to prepare your appliances for moving, if it isn't done correctly, you may find units not working when they arrive at the new destination.

 

Moving Your Computer

Use this easy to follow step-by-step guide to pack all your electronics, including how to properly label the plugs and wires to ensure you can set-up the equipment when you get to your new home.

 

Packing Pictures, Frames and Mirrors

How do you pack pictures and frames without chipping corners or breaking glass? Find out in this easy step-by-step guide. You'll be sure to have all your artwork and photos arrive in one piece.

 

Packing Flatware and Plates

Follow this easy step-by-step guide to packing plates and flatware to ensure your favorite pieces arrive at their new home without chips or cracks.

 

Packing the Essentials Box

Everyone should prepare an essentials box, a box full of items you'll need for your last few nights before you move and/or the first few nights in your new home.

 

All About Moving Boxes

Moving boxes are generally the same weight and quality as ordinary shipping boxes, unless you purchase some made from thicker cardboard that allows for heavier packing. So, the question most people have is, should I purchase moving boxes or find some slightly-used from grocery stores or friends who've just recently moved.
