It is important to be organized. If you are packing yourself make sure to use appropriate boxes (dish pack, wardrobe, and picture/mirror boxes) when packing mirrors make sure to put crumpled packing paper in the corners. Label all boxes (i.e., destination, fragile, etc). Empty out drawers (otherwise items shift and we cannot be responsible for contents of drawers not being emptied) as night stands and desks might be packed on their sides during the Tetris game of filling the truck. Most clothes can stay in drawers. For heavier furniture these can be pulled out and shrink-wrapped. This will save you boxes and personal time putting items back away. When taking apart your bed frame or electronics, make sure to wind -up cords and bag all hardware. Securely tape them to the back of the item or keep them in a safe spot. When packing don’t use duct tape, as it does not adhere to cardboard. Use clear packing tape.
