MOVING TIPS AND HELPFUL LINKS

Packing can be tedious and time-consuming. Though we recommend that you have professionals pack for you, if you decide to pack items by yourself, The Moving Doctor would like to help. Here are some packing secrets to use.

It takes the right materials and skill to prepare for your move.

    1

    You can buy the cartons and packing materials you'll need from us. We can help you choose the sizes and the kinds you'll need. You'll save valuable time compared to trying to track down suitable cartons at supermarkets. More importantly, our cartons are specifically designed for packing household goods. Packing materials include unprinted newsprint, bubble wrap and tape.

    2

    Wrap fragile articles the way professionals do - use two layers of unprinted newsprint per glass, dish, figurine, etc. Wrap firmly, but loosely enough, to provide a cushioning effect.

    3

    Don't overcrowd boxes. Professionals pack boxes so articles cushion each other. The top of the box should close with slight pressure. Don't mix incompatible items (like books with glasses). Pack clothing in our special wardrobe containers. Without overcrowding, clothes will hang straight, and stay clean and virtually wrinkle-free.

    4

    Pack glasses standing on end, upside down, and not on their sides. Stack dishes on edge, and fill empty spaces with wadded unprinted newsprint. Before packing the dish pack, layer the bottom of the carton with crumpled unprinted newsprint.
