Tips for Safe Packing

Safe packing should be a concern, especially if you decide to do the unpacking and packing yourself. Here are a few tips that can help you with making sure your stuff is packed safely.

  • Don’t load more than 50lbs in a single box
  • Use strong yet securable boxes and/or containers.
  • If your box has fragile items, label them as such.
  • Medicines should go in leak-proof containers.
  • Empty spaces in your packing boxes can lead to damage to your items. Stuff them with bubble wrap or newspaper.
  • Don’t pack your valuables. Carry them along with you.
  • Use tape to seal your boxes, both top, and bottom to prevent any issues with splitting.
