More Packing Tips from the Professionals


Originally posted on


You’re getting close to your move date. Now, you just have to get your entire home packed up for the movers. For a successful move with minimal stress, planning is the key for local moves, a long distance move, or if you’re moving internationally. Avoid the frustration, and possible damage, that can come from rushing your packing at the last minute and follow a few bits of advice. This will help your move go well.

Don’t Delay, Start early

The earlier you begin, the better your move will go. Items you need regularly can be packed close to your move date, but most things can be packed well before the move. Seasonal clothes, dress attire, holiday decorations, and other things can be packed weeks in advance. This is also a good time to donate or give away things you aren’t like to use. This will save on moving costs and space..

The Key packing boxes

From the Better Business Bureau, when packing use large boxes for light items and small boxes for heavy items like books or china. This will ensure that light items don’t get damaged by being placed in the same boxes as heavy items, and minimize injuries caused by trying to lift large boxes that are simply too heavy. Keep an inventory of what is in each box or, at the very least, have a system so that similar items, such as kitchen products, are all kept together. By keeping track of what is in each box you will be able to find what you need more easily when you’re unpacking. Also, don’t waste the storage space provided by your own furniture. In some instances, clothes can be left in your dresser, for example, if storage will not be required. The movers will secure the drawers during wrapping and prepping.
