• Begin packing a couple of days before you move. Careful packing prevents breakage and loss of small and fragile items.
  • As you are packing, weed out old, unwanted, or unneeded possessions. They take up unnecessary storage space.
  • Pack your items in sturdy, corrugated cartons. Use packing paper, sealing tape, and a magic marker-type pen to properly pack and identify your boxes.
  • Try to keep the weight of all boxes under 30 pounds to avoid making the boxes too heavy to lift.
