Packing Tips for Your Austin Move

Don’t get caught making the same mistakes most DIY movers make. Pack like a pro with packing these tips from our professionals at All My Sons Austin moving services.

Correct Boxes

There’s no such thing as one size fits all in moving. Boxes come in various sizes because they serve different purposes, so make use of them. Larger boxes should contain bulkier, but lightweight items. Smaller boxes contain heavier items like books and small appliances. Our Austin moving service professionals know how to distribute items to keep them safe during transport.

Maximize Space

If you’ve ever played the popular video game, “Tetris,” then you know that space is a bad thing. When packing boxes, try to fill up as much space as possible. Don’t leave your boxes halfway full.

Label Boxes

Anyone hiring Austin moving services has made the decision to be organized for their move. Part of organized moving is labeling boxes. When packing your belongings, label each box with its contents so that you can easily sort things out when you move into your new home.

Packing Supplies

If you’re preparing for a move, you need the right packing supplies. Collect important items to help make your move run smoothly. You’ll be needing scissors, packing tape, box cutters, furniture covers, a dolly, rope or twine and a host of other materials.

Fragile Items

As you pack your belongings, give extra attention to fragile items. Put packing paper or newspaper around dishes and glasses. Bundle and wrap them all together. Dished should be packed on their sides, never flat. Televisions should be double boxed, with one of the boxes padded with packing paper.
