What to Know Before you Pack

What to Know Before you Pack!

  • Start collecting moving boxes early. An easy way to store boxes is to open both ends of the cartons and flatten them out. You can reopen them and re-seal the bottoms with your packing tape when they are ready to use.
  • Pack on a room-by-room basis. Don’t mix items from the living room in boxes with articles from the kitchen. This will save hassles and any confusion later on when it's time to unpack.
  • Start packing early. You might want to start in areas where the goods are not in frequent use - such as the cellar, attic, garage, closet shelves, etc.
  • Look for packing companies to do some of your packing for you. USA Moving and Storage have packing services. At the very least, it may be necessary to purchase some of their specialized cartons that will be impossible to find elsewhere. This includes cartons such as mattress boxes, wardrobe boxes, containers for large pictures and mirrors, and possibly some large cartons for tall table lamps.
  • Hang clothing like suits, dresses and coats, in movers’ wardrobe boxes. This will avoid wrinkling and save you the trouble and expense of having your garments cleaned and pressed later. Garment bags were not designed to be used as movers’ wardrobes, and will not withstand the stress of a move.
  • Do not pack any flammables, combustibles, or explosives.
