- Start packing several weeks in advance. Pack early to avoid being overwhelmed as moving day draws near.
- If you have requested full packing service with G&J Moving, our professional movers may arrive a day or two prior to your moving date to begin packing. If you are packing yourself or require minimum packing services, we will arrive on the day of your move to blanket wrap and load your belongings onto one of our sanitized moving trucks.
- Wrap small items in colored paper. This prevents items such as knick-knacks from becoming lost or thrown out.
- Label boxes on top and sides. Mark the top and sides of boxes as they’re packed. Make sure to label boxes containing breakable or sentimental items with “fragile.”
- Pack all electronic equipment in original boxes. Otherwise use low-static bubble wrap when packing these items
- Always use packing paper. When wrapping fine china and precious items, the ink from printed newsprint can bleed.
- Sealing all boxes with packing tape. This makes it easier to stack and protect belongings.
- Use boxes designed for the items you are packing. Use dish pack boxes for dishes, wardrobe boxes for clothing.
