Our top-quality packing experts in Texas have perform professional packing services over a number of years. As a result of our experience we have picked up a number of great tips when it comes to packing any size box or any type of valuable item. Here are some top tips we have on packing for customers that choose to do this themselves:
Using the right size box for each item: Packing items in their applicable box is extremely important. If you have an item that is placed in the wrong size box or a box that isn’t rated for the amount of weight this can lead to some huge problems with breakages and damage.
Place heavy items in the bottom: When heavy items go in the bottom of boxes you can be assured that the weight is distributed evenly and that the boxes can be carried without the same potential for breakage.
Eliminate empty space when possible: Empty space in boxes causes items to roll around and this can often lead to damage in your valuables. Eliminate empty space in boxes by packing bubble wrap around them or by using some kind of blanket inside to prevent breakage.
Keep similar items together: Try to pack boxes room by room and consider potentially keeping items from the same room all packed in the same box. This will help with your unpacking effort as you can make sure you are much more organized.
Get great packing tape: Good packing tape is essential to securing boxes later on and if you don’t have access to it to secure your boxes it can often lead to damages and breakage as well.
Consider unique packaging for valuables: If you have large valuables consider buying specialty packing supplies like packing peanuts, bubble wrap or purpose built travel containers for your move.
