Packing Tips

Now that you have decided to enlist the help of our professionals at Guardian Moving & Storage in Pensacola, it’s time to start thinking about boxing up your belongings. The chore does not have to be a hassle. In fact, your move will go a lot easier if you follow a few key packing tips.

Letting Us Do the Work

One of the best packing tips we can offer is to let us do it for you. Our trained team carefully handles your belongings and can efficiently store and ship them. Moving from room to room, one of our representatives will choose the right kind of box and cushioning materials to ensure your possessions are safe during the move.

Doing It Yourself

Some people prefer to pack their own belongings, and we are happy to give a few packing tips to make the job easier:

  • Use items such as bubble wrap or newsprint to cushion breakable items
  • For maximum protection, choose item-specific boxes such as dish packs or mirror and picture boxes
  • Place heavy items in the bottom of the box and lighter items on top
  • Every box should be able to completely close and should be secured with tape

Once you have safely boxed up your items, employ some expert moving & packing tips, such as labeling everything. The tops and sides of every carton should be clearly labeled with the room where each box should be placed. Additionally, write “FRAGILE” on any breakables. Lastly, you may consider arranging the truck according to your need to quickly access items. Therefore, label those boxes with “Load last, unload first” so movers can help you stay organized.
