1. Start With Supplies. The first step to any packing process is gathering all the supplies you’ll need before-hand. Supplies like boxes, tape, bubble wrap, packing peanuts, newspaper etc. will be essential.

2.The Right Box for the Job. Dishes, art, and mirrors can all be packed in specialized boxes. Packing items into their specialized box will ensure good condition while moving.

3. Handle With Care. Take care with packing all your fragile items such as any glassware, ceramics, dishes, mirrors etc. The best way to pack these items is to wrap them individually in bubble wrap. Next pack tightly into size appropriate boxes filled with packing peanuts, or bubble wrap. Make sure there is no room for shifting during the move.

4. Weight Distribution. When packing boxes, heavy items should always go on the bottom. Lighter items always on top. This will prevent any damage to the lighter possessions.

5. Prevent Injury. Keep in mind the weight of your boxes. Set the maximum at around 50 pounds. This will prevent any injuries from trying to list those extremely heavy boxes. You should always limit the weight of your boxes to 50 pounds. This will help make lifting easier for you and avoid any injuries.

6. Keep a List. One of the best ways to keep track of your stuff is to number each box and keep a list that describes all the items in the box number. It will save you the stress of searching through boxes when you need to retrieve anything from storage.

7. Use Tape. Make sure there is an airtight seal on all of your boxes. Don’t be afraid to use too much tape. too much is better than too little!

8. Have a Strategy. Keep in mind the placement of your stuff when you go to move them to storage. most-needed items should always be near the front. Keep a clear walkway for easy access.
