Packing Guide

More than just about anything else, packing well is essential for an overall successful move. A full service moving company can take care of this for you; or follow our packing guide for a smooth moving experience. Pick a room, and we'll explain how to best pack what you're likely to find there.

Garage/Hobby Room/Storage

Preparing storage sheds or garages for moving will normally require the most time because they contain sharp, odd-shaped or heavy items that must be packed cautiously.

Home Office/Den

Label cords and cables so you'll know which goes where, and pack them in the same box as the electronic equipment they go with.

Bedroom/Nursery/Bathroom

Start packing your bedrooms for moving by beginning with less-used guest rooms. If you have children, you can involve them with this packing step by setting aside the toys and books they want to take with them and packing the rest.

Living/Family/Guest

From electronics to lamps, your main living area requires a little extra preparation prior to moving day.

Dining Room

The dining room will generally include your most fragile china and crystal stemware. Moving professionals recommend that each item should be carefully wrapped in paper and placed in dish-pack moving cartons; cellular dividers are recommended for stemware.

Kitchen/Laundry Room

You can start packing your kitchen right after you decide you’re moving. Begin with your small appliances, seasonal items, and less-used serving dishes.

Moving Appliances

When preparing large appliances for moving, it is important that they be clean and dry to avoid the build up of mold and mildew.

Non-transportable Items

You should transport valuable and irreplaceable items with you rather than on the truck.

Types of Boxes

No matter what you're trying to pack, Quality Move Management has the box you need. Our boxes come in all different strengths and sizes to help ensure safe and efficient moving.
