Comprehensive packing tips:
Get plenty of packing supplies in time
Use strong and sturdy boxes of different sizes, get bubble wrap and newspapers to wrap fragile items
Make an inventory
Try to fill a box with items from one single room, and pack one room at a time
Try to pack heavier items, books, canned food for example in smaller boxes, and lighter items in bigger boxes. Avoid loading more than 50 pounds into one box
Do not pack official documents, passports, driving licenses, birth certificates, financial documents, cash and jewellery
Heavier items should always be placed at the bottom and lighter items on top to prevent damage
What not to pack?
Hazardous, flammable, and explosive materials should never be packed as it is dangerous and illegal for movers to transport them. Dispose of these safely in all cases. Perishable items, such as plants and perishable food should not be moved either. If you are moving abroad, check the local legislation, as you might not be able to move.
