Start Early

Begin packing well in advance of your moving date to avoid last-minute rush and stress. Set aside dedicated time each day to tackle different areas of your home.


Start with items you use less frequently, such as seasonal clothing, decorations, and items stored in the attic or basement. Pack room by room, focusing on one area at a time to stay organized.

Use the Right Supplies

Invest in high-quality packing materials, including sturdy boxes in various sizes, packing tape, bubble wrap, packing paper, and labeling markers.

Label Everything

Clearly label each box with its contents and the room it belongs to. This will make unpacking much easier and help movers know where to place each box in your new home.

Pack Strategically

Pack heavier items at the bottom of boxes and lighter items on top. Use padding, such as bubble wrap or packing paper, to protect fragile items and fill empty spaces to prevent shifting during transit.
