Packing for Your Move

Use appropriately sized boxes for your fragile items—not too big and not too small—to avoid breakage. A too-large box will leave too much wiggle room; a too-small box can put your items under a lot of stress.

Don’t skimp on the padding! It’s not worth the damage. Go to your local moving supply store and buy bubble wrap, unprinted newspaper, or packing peanuts to pad your boxes. Of course, you probably already have packing material. Use clothes, pillows, and linens to kill two birds with one stone.

Don’t forget to label every box (on all sides!) with where it’s going in the new place, not where it was in the old house. That way, there’ll be no confusion when the truck finally pulls up to your new address. Interstate Direct Movers offers both partial and full packing.
