PACKING CHECKLIST

Tips to Make Your Move A Little Easier

 

þ Packing Tips

  • Gather boxes in all sizes from friends, neighbors, and stores
  •  
  • Collect cushioning material such as bubble wrap, Styrofoam pellets, furniture pads, old blankets, plastic bags, tissue paper, newspapers, and small towels to sue as padding inside boxes.
  •  
  • Create a “portable packing kit” with marking pens, a tape measure, packing tape, twine, and scissors.  Carry it with you as you pack up items around your home.
  •  
  • Reinforce the bottom of boxes with extra tape for added strength.
  •  
  • Label each box with the name of the room in your home where it should be placed.
  •  
  • Number the boxes and keep a list of which boxes goes in which room in your new home.
  •  
  • Label boxes containing fragile items with large red lettering.
  •  
  • Place china in plastic bags and stack plates upright on their sides, not flat.
  •  
  • Pack your TV, stereo, and computer in their original boxes whenever possible.
  •  
  • Keep boxes to 50 pounds or less.
  •  
  • Pack heavy items into their own smaller boxes and place lighter items together into larger boxes.  (Don’t pack all your books into one box!)
  •  
  • Don’t move flammable, combustible, corrosive, or explosive items such as paint, gasoline, and ammunition.
  •  
  • Pack a bag of personal items you’ll need during the move (change of clothes, toiletries, medicine, maps, food, and drinks).  Keep it in an easy-to-find place when you pack.
