  • Pack a couple of boxes a day, starting well ahead of time.
  • When getting boxes from rocery stores keep in mind that insect and insects eggs can travel in food boxes.
  • Label each box with room and contents and make a log of all boxes and contents.
  • All boxes with "fragile" items should be marked accordingly and clearly.
  • Pack what you need least, first.
  • Always remember, the heavier the contents, the smaller the carton.
  • Disassemble any items you can.
  • Insure items with sharp corners or projections are prevented from puncturing or scratching the boxes.
  • Be sure to have plenty of "filling" material available.
  • Fill any unused space in boxes with paper or other filler to prevent shifting during transit.
