How to Pack for a Move

Tips on How to Pack for a Move

Lambert and Son Moving Company can do all the packing for you to make moving in California a breeze.  If you do choose to pack the boxes yourself  here are some great packing tips from to help de-stress moving.

  1. Start finding boxes and cartons about a month or so prior to the move date. Grocery stores, department stores and especially wholesale stores are great sources for boxes, so request them in advance and they will most likely be willing to get rid of them. Lambert and Son Moving Company can also provide boxes at a low cost to help protect your valued possession.
  2. Start getting rid of items that will not be moved or packed. Have a garage sale or begin to items into storage that you will not be using.  Getting rid of unused items and junk will save you money and a lot of headaches.
  3. Gather all packing materials needed before starting to pack. Some useful packing materials include:  boxes tape, packing paper, packing tape, markers, and box cutter.  Lambert Moving Company can help provide these materials for you while moving.
  4. When learning how to pack, be sure to pack room by room and label the boxes according to the content and which room it belongs in. This packing tip not only helps with the packing process but also with the un-packing process.  Be sure to mark the boxes in more than one location, so you can easily identify where a box goes.
  5. Be sure to have plenty of filling material for the boxes. Packing dishes and fragile items can become a disaster if not enough padding has been used.
