  • Loose Items: All loose items must be placed in boxes.
  • Heavy and Light Items: Heavy items, such as books, should be placed in small boxes.
    Light items, such as linens, may be placed in larger boxes.
  • Breakables (Dishes, etc.): Make sure to cushion the bottom of the box before placing any breakables in. Wrap each item separately, using packing paper or newspaper,
    make sure that one item does not touch the other. Bubble-wrap may be used for special pieces.  Note box as fragile.
  • Side Tables and Small Cabinets: May remain full only if they are packed with light items, such as linens or clothing.
  • Desks, Large and Antique Cabinets: All drawers must be emptied.
  • File Cabinets: If there are no stairs in your move, all vertical file cabinets will be moved with their contents and do not need to be emptied. Lateral file cabinets, up to two drawers high, will be moved with contents; all drawers above the second drawer must be emptied. If your move involves stairs, only two-drawer vertical file cabinets may remain full.
  • Bookcases and Wall Units: All bookcases and wall units must be emptied. The movers will separately pack all loose shelves.
  • Computers and other electronics: Back-up computers. Unplug and mark the different wires to ensure easy reconnection. Pack well in a heavy-duty box using cushioning materials.
  • Artwork and Mirrors: Artwork, such as statues and small wall hangings, should be placed in boxes and noted as fragile. All medium and large hanging artwork should be packed in special picture boxes or crated.
  • Table Lamps: Separate shades, bulbs, and bases before packing. Note the box as fragile.
    DO NOT PACK: Money, jewelry, important papers, perishable items and flammable materials.
  • Moving is a good opportunity to get rid of unneeded items, such as old clothes, magazines, unused toys, dishes, etc. Leave these items behind. It will save you money and time, as well as provide you with a fresh start and more space at your new home.
  • Label or mark each box with the proper room for easy placement at delivery. Mark boxes containing fragile items in large easy to read letters, "FRAGILE."
