Packing Tips and Useful Hints

Dishes and Fragile items

  • Cushion the bottom of the box with wades of bundled or rolled up paper.
  • Wrap each piece individually.
  • Newspaper or unprinted soft paper is ideal for this purpose.
  • Bundle flatware in-groups of three and wrap each bundle.
  • Place a few layers of paper between each piece of china.
  • Cushion the top and sides with paper to prevent shifting.
  • When you shake the box, you should not hear anything move.
  • The steadier the contents, the lower the risk of damage.

  • Make sure your dresser drawers are completely empty.
  • Put hanging clothes in wardrobe boxes.
  • Use the bottom of the wardrobe boxes for shoes.

  • Please make sure that you box your own pictures or paintings.
  • ABC Van Lines sells picture boxes.

Lamps and Electrical Items
  • Wherever possible, pack electronics in the original cartons. If the original boxes are not available to you, pack the items using bubble wrap and make sure that it is packed in the correct sized box.
  • Code wiring with tape for easy installation.
  • Stereo: fasten down the tone arm and dust cover.
  • Compact disk: Check instructions to secure a laser.
  • Personal computer: Backup important files. Insert an old or blank disk in the floppy disk drive. "Park" the hard disk (program often included on diagnostics diskette.)
