Don’t forget about these packing tips before your moving day!
- Pack Heavy – Pack Light
Pack heavy items in small boxes and lighter items in larger boxes.
- Know how to Pack Plates and Records
Plates and record albums should be packed on end vertically, rather than placed flat and stacked.
- Protect Your Memories
If it’s irreplaceable, take it with you in the car (you don’t want regrets later). But if you do decide to pack framed photos or art, place sheets or blankets between them for added protection.
- Unscrew Bulbs
Remove bulbs before packing your lamps.
- Don’t forget about the Fridge
After you’ve thoroughly cleaned and dried the inside of your refrigerator, put a handful of fresh coffee, baking soda or charcoal in a sock or nylon stocking and place it inside to keep the interior smelling fresh.
- Be Nice to Your Plants
When moving plants to your new residence via your car, try not to let foliage rest against the windows, as the leaves will scorch.
