Packing Tips

Moving can be a stressful time period. There are many decisions to make, and it can be tough to make sure you have all of your Ts crossed and Is dotted. As a moving company in Hennepin County, we have helped countless people like you with their move. One of the most taxing aspects of any move is packing. So here are a few tips from our moving company on how to make this chore go a bit easier and how to pack various items in your home.

Fine China

Get clean newsprint paper and place that in the bottom of a box. This will give it some extra cushioning for when your moving company arrives to take it from your old home to your new home. Then you should take the time to carefully wrap each piece of china in clean newsprint or bubble wrap. Then surround each bundle with more newsprint and be sure there are no unfilled spaces in the box. Then add a few inches of crushed paper on top of the packed china. Each box can have a few layers of china packed into it, as long as you are sure to wrap each piece on its own and leave plenty of cushioning in between each layer. Just be sure to use a small or medium sized box for this.

Bedding and Towels

Bedding and soft items like towels can be easily packed for your moving company. Simply place the bedding and towels in the box, and then separate them with a layer or two of clean paper. This will also help you keep your bedding and soft items organized during your move and after your moving company leaves. Bedding and soft items can be packed in larger boxes since these tend to be lightweight, depending on the type of bedding that’s packed in there.

Breakable Figurines

If you have any breakable figurines or statues, carefully wrap each piece in bubble wrap. Then take some clean paper and wrap them in that as well. Gently place each item in a small or medium box and then pack any extra space with clean newsprint or more bubble wrap.

We hope you find these tips helpful! Just remember our moving company has a Free Box Program, and we also offer free bubble wrap, wardrobe boxes and other moving supplies.
