Make a list and label boxes.
Make a list of furniture you need to move and think through where you want to place it at the new location. Then use either furniture labels or make your own out of painter’s tape. Use a permanent marker to write what the contents are and if they’re fragile. It will help you plan ahead and save time while unloading because your friends won’t have to ask you where each piece needs to go.
Set important items aside
Set important papers, mobile phones, keys and other things aside that you don’t want packed. Use your kitchen counter top or a special area to secure them in.
Pack furniture contents in boxes.
This will reduce the chance of losing items and damaging goods. A light dresser is easier and safer to move than a full dresser.
Use the appropriate box size
Pack heavier items in smaller boxes to make them easier to lift. Light items should go in larger boxes. We offer moving boxes and supplies at a great price. And the best part, they are delivered to your door with your container!
Be generous with packing paper and bubble wrap
By packing boxes with enough packing paper, it ensures a good amount of cushioning for your valuable belongings.
Use plenty of packing-tape
Securing your boxes with plenty of tape will help your boxes stayed closed while you’re carrying it.
To protect all of your overstuffed furniture like sofas and chairs, shrink-wrap or put them in bags. This will help them stay clean while you move. Shrink-wrap is also great for keeping cushions and dresser drawers in place while moving.
Loading Your Container
When loading your container, place heavier items on the bottom and light items on the top.
Try to distribute the weight evenly across the container.
Dressers, cabinets and buffets make great foundations to stack lighter items on.
Protect your furniture with moving blankets.
Load middleweight boxes and furniture next.
Light furniture and boxes can used to fill gaps throughout loading.
Don’t save all your boxes for the end.
Remember to turn your couches, box springs and mattresses on end to save space.
Tie down all your belongings a section at a time by using our conveniently placed eye-hooks inside your container.
