Get Packing!Packing Hints and Tips


If you’re packing yourself, you’ll need sturdy boxes in a variety of sizes, as well as lots of newswrap,
bubble wrap, packing tape and permanent markers. Televisions, stereo equipment and electronics
should be replaced in their original packaging. Each carton should weigh no more than 50 pounds.
Keep in mind that the process of packing your belongings in the truck is like putting together a
puzzle. The more different sizes of boxes you use, the longer and more difficult it will be to pack them
into the truck. Assign a number to each room of your new home and label boxes with the number of
the room they belong in.

There are some items that moving companies will not transport such as aerosols, combustable
fluids/gases, loaded guns and even nail polish remover. You may want to personally transport certain
valuables, such as important documents, jewelry and extremely fragile items. Remember to reserve a
few empty cartons for those last-minute items like toiletries, bed linens, etc….
