Packing Tips

Packing tips for moving to Florida or any long-distance home or office moving project.

Packing Details

Boxes – Use high quality boxes that can stand up to the normal handling expected during the move. Choose boxes that will support the weight within without becoming too heavy to handle. Pack heavier items on the bottom of the box, lighter ones on the top, and indicate which side is up when marking the room and contents.

Checklist – Make a list of the items to be packed, and grouping similar items together. Try to pack items from a single room together, so they can be easily managed later. Put a list of the items on the outside of the box.

Labeling – Label each box with its contents, its delivery location and a box number. Make a separate list of each box number with an inventory of its contents.

Fragile Items – Fragile items like nail polish bottles, perfume bottles and hand mirrors should be removed from dressers and cupboard. Items made of glass such as crockery or light bulbs etc. can be placed in their original cartons with heavy padding so that they do not move inside their boxes.

Food – Food has to be packed properly. Perishables and refrigerator items should be done away with.

What to pack, and what NOT to pack – Flammable material like gas cylinders and aerosols are strictly prohibited.

Valuables – Electronics and computers should be packed in their original boxes, if possible. If original boxes are unavailable, appropriate cartons and packing materials should be used. 

Moving cars – Cars should be empty of fuel and stripped of all important stuff before it is prepared for shipment. Make sure your insurance papers are in place and other important documents in case anything goes wrong during transport.
