Packing Tips

For your convenience Movage carries a full line of packing supplies. We also offer a professional packing service. Should you decide to do your own packing here are a few helpful packing tips.

Spreading the Word
Notify both building managers of your move date. If possible, reserve the elevator at your new and old address. Reserve a parking space near the building for our truck. Have the utilities turned off at your old address one day after your move date. Have the utilities turned on at your new address one day prior to your move date.

Packing Your Belongings
List contents and room on the outside of the carton. Clearly mark "Fragile" on the outside of cartons. Separate breakables and non-breakables. Use clean newsprint paper. Old newspapers may work, but use them carefully because the ink may rub off onto your items. For items you want to keep clean, you can buy unprinted newspaper from Movage. Use professional packing tape. Masking tape isn't strong enough to support fully packed cartons. You can buy the tape from any hardware store or from Movage for your convenience.

China and Glasses:
Use large, double corrugated boxes. Cushion the bottom with rolled paper. Wrap each piece individually. Bundle flatware in groups of three and wrap the bundle. Do not place one layer of dishes directly on top of another, separate with a layer of stuffed paper. Cushion the top along with the sides with paper to prevent shifting -- the steadier the contents, the less chance of damages.

Clothing:
Empty dressers completely. Put hanging clothes in wardrobe boxes. Use the bottom of the wardrobe boxes for shoes. Put extra tape along the sides.

Soft Goods:
Soft goods like pillows and bedding are packed in lined cartons separated by layers of clean paper.

Lamps:
Remove light bulbs. Put the lampshade in a separate box marked "FRAGILE".

Stereo, Computer…
If possible, pack electronics in their original cartons. As long as proper packing materials are used (bubble wrap, newsprint, foam sheeting, comforters/blankets, pillows, etc.), electronics can be safely packed in sturdy boxes. For CD Players, remove all CD's, and check instructions to secure the laser. Label the carton as "Fragile - Top Load."

Bottles:
Bottles are taped shut and wrapped in clean newsprint. For extra security, place bottles in a resealable, watertight bag before wrapping and placing in carton.

Mirrors and Glass
Wrap the picture or mirror in a generous cushion of clean paper. Place in a flattened packing or telescoping carton. Carefully tape and seal the carton. Always stand glass, pictures and mirrors on their edge. Do not lay flat!

DO NOT PACK:
Money, valuable papers, and jewelry. Flammable items such as aerosol cans, paints, and gasoline. Perishable items such as frozen foods and plants. Kitchenware or other heavy items with fragile items such as china and dishware.
