Essential Moving Information


Packing Basics


Packing Room-By-Room


Boxes and Containers

Movers have packing containers suited to fit all your needs. These materials are available at a nominal charge. Get enough to handle all your belongings, and avoid the trouble of searching for sturdy boxes. Most stores discard their boxes, so trying to find them yourself can be both difficult and frustrating.


Wrapping Materials

Moving companies can supply you with un printed newspaper, which avoids the possibility of ink rubbing off on your possessions. If you decide to use actual newspaper, don't wrap good china or lampshades in it, the ink can cause permanent stains. If you have bubble wrap or foam pellets, use them. For items like TVs, VCR's and computers, pack them in the original boxes whenever possible. This provides extra protection.


Felt Tip Markers

Unmarked boxes are a nightmare. Make sure every room has a marking pen and some stick-on labels. Write big and bold on all sides. That way, you won't have to move boxes around to know what's in them.



Wide packing tape, called strapping tape, is the best. Get rolls with their own dispensers and the job is even easier. When you seal a box, make sure the tape extends at least halfway down each side, that way it won't come loose during the move.



Buy a couple of pairs of inexpensive, sturdy scissors at the hardware store. You won't damage your expensive sewing shears, and you'll always have an extra pair available.


Seal able Plastic Bags

Small plastic bags can be handy to hold knobs, handles, screws, picture hooks, and other easily lost items. Tape them securely to the inside of drawers so you can find them easily once you are in your new home.


Trash Bags

Every room should have a trash bag. By always having one nearby, you won't be tempted to pack things you really should discard.


Packing Room

Designate a packing room on each floor of the house, ideally it should be the one least used. Keep all your packing materials in there. Pack that room first, and then as you pack other rooms, put the filled boxes in the packing room. This will cut down on clutter and makes things easier.
