Tips on Packing  
Category: Moving Tips


      Follow these guidelines in packing your household goods. You will save a great deal of money by packing your belongings yourself.


      Use strong containers that are in good condition and that can be secured tightly with tape. These can usually be purchased from your moving company.


      Purchase special boxes for dishes, wardrobe and other special items.


      Label each box with its contents, which room it should go in, whether it is fragile and whether it should be loaded last so it can be unloaded first.


      Don't load more than 50 pounds into any one box, and make sure the weight is evenly distributed.


      Cushion contents with newspaper or other packing material to prevent breakage. Use newsprint or tissue paper for items that might be soiled by newspaper.


      Pack books tightly on end in small boxes. Alternate bindings and wrap valuable books separately.


      Have your rugs and draperies cleaned before moving and leave them in their wrappings for easier handling.


      Remove all breakables and liquids from drawers and pack them separately.


      Seal medicines and other containers to prevent leaking and pack in a leak-proof bag or container.


      Carry all valuables with you, including jewelry, documents, coin or stamp collections or anything of value.


      Contents of a safe deposit box can be moved for you by your bank.
