A First-Time Mover's Guide to Packing

Packing is one of the most important aspects of the entire moving process. Doing it right ensures that your belongings stay safe during the transition. Use this guide to help you learn the best way to pack the items you are moving to your new home and those that are going to the storage center:

  • Use the Right Supplies
    If you want to pack well, you have to give yourself a strong foundation. Stock up on supplies that are designed specifically for moving. The self-storage company will have sturdy boxes, packing paper, tape, and everything else you need to pack properly. Buy the supplies you need before you start to pack.
  • Think About What Goes into Each Box
    It is not a good idea to put a fragile picture frame into a box with a lot of heavy books. Before you put anything into a carton, try to find a configuration that will keep all of your belongings safe. You should put heavy items, like books, into small boxes so you or the movers can easily pick them up. Save the big boxes for pillows, comforters, and other light items.
  • Focus on One Room at a Time
    Trying to pack your entire house at one time will get really overwhelming very quickly. Instead of taking on the entire project, break it up into pieces. Start in a room that you do not use very often. Separating the job by room makes it easy to keep everything organized. This way, you can clearly see which boxes should go to the storage facility and which ones should go to the new house.
