What are some packing tips for moving?

Packing for a move is a lot more involved than simply throwing things into a box. Different types of items require different packing methods to ensure their safe travel.

  • Electronics: These should be packaged in their original packaging. If the original packaging isn’t available, you can purchase specialty moving boxes that are manufactured specifically for protecting electronics from damage.
  • Pictures, frames and mirrors: These should be surrounded by bubble wrap and packaged in flat, oversized boxes.
  • Dishes and expensive china: These should all be individually wrapped in newspaper and surrounded by enough bubble wrap and stuffing to withstand moderate impact.

For more specifics on how to pack in anticipation of your move, contact a moving company in your area for professional advice.
