Packing Tips

Pack a bag that holds needed items, such as medications, toothbrushes, and other necessary toiletries to make moving day less stressful. This way, you have easy access and do not have to unpack to find small items.

> Wrap dishes, glasses, mugs, and breakable items in towels to save on bubble wrap. Or, place the dishes and other plates vertically to reduce the chance of damage.

> Double check that all heavy items are separate or packed on the bottom of boxes to eliminate damage.

> Put all small items, such as screws, chargers, or electronic pieces, in labeled sandwich bags to avoid losing them.

> Take a picture of how all your electronics are hooked up to make reinstallation easy.

> Find vacuum seal bags to store out-of-season clothes and bedding to make storage easier.

> If possible, arrive to your new home early to ensure all rooms are clean before you start unpacking.
