Moving and Packing Tips

Tips

  • Pack heavy items in small boxes, light items in larger boxes
  • Designate one drawer of a dresser for sheets and towels so they'll be easily available the first night in your new home
  • Place a sock or nylon stocking in your refrigerator with a cup of baking soda, charcoal or fresh coffee to keep the interior smelling fresh
  • Pack your current phone book — you may need to call residents or businesses in your former hometown
  • Records and plates should be packed on end vertically, rather than stacked
  • Make sure medicine and other toiletries have lids on securely prior to packing
  • Remove bulbs from lamps before packing
  • Clearly label each carton with room number plus contents
  • Ask a friend to keep your children and pets when packing and on moving day
  • If packing yourself, pack several cartons each day rather than all at once
  • Pack on a room-by-room basis. Don't mix items from different rooms in one box
  • Allow children to pack their favorite toys. This gives them a stronger sense of belonging
  • Be cautious with boxes from grocery or liquor stores. They may not be clean and may not have the strength to withstand the weight of items you're packing
  • Hazardous materials may not be moved
    • Paint
    • Varnish
    • Gasoline
    • Kerosene
    • Oil
    • Bottled gas
    • Aerosol cans
    • Nail polish/remover
    • Ammunition
    • Explosives
  • Pack a "survival" kit which you carry in your car, or have first off the truck
    • Basic Tools — Hammer screwdriver, knife, tape, etc.
    • Bathroom products — Soap, toilet paper, towels, etc.
    • Kitchen items — Disposable utensils, cups, plates and snacks, drinks, etc.
    • Cleaning products — Cleansers, broom, dustpan, sponges, etc.
  • Load your plants in the moving truck last, and unload them first — check with the U. S. Department of Agriculture for regulations regarding moving plants.
