Once you’ve decided how you’re going to move and you’ve gathered all your supplies, use these packing tips to make sure your valuables come out of their boxes in good shape.
- Use the right size boxes. Put heavy items, like books, in small boxes; light items, like linens and pillows, in bigger ones
- Put heavier items on the bottoms of boxes, lighter items on top. And if you’re loading the truck yourself, pack heavier boxes first, toward the front of the truck, for balance.
