QMM's bedroom packing tips can help you pack any size bedroom, nursery or bathroom in your residence. From clothing to toiletries, our bedroom packing tips are ideal for anyone approaching a move. The better you pack now, the easier your unpacking job will be later.
Packing Tips for the Bedroom
Start packing your bedrooms by tackling less-used guest rooms first. Children can help by setting aside the toys and books they want to take with them and packing the rest in boxes. Colourful stickers on the outside of boxes let children know their personal belongings are clearly marked, and allow them to identify their things when the moving van is unloaded.
Hanging clothing from closets can be left on hangers and placed in wardrobe cartons. You may want to consider purchasing several of these special cartons from your moving company. One will hold about two feet of compressed clothing on hangers; figure in more cartons if wrinkles are a concern. If wardrobe cartons are not used, each garment should be removed from its hanger, folded and placed in a suitcase or a carton lined with clean paper.
Hats may be left in hatboxes and placed in large cartons, or stuff the crown of each hat with crumpled tissue paper, wrap tissue loosely around the outside and place in a carton lined with clean paper, with the heavier hats at the bottom. Don't pack anything else with hats. Label the carton "FRAGILE."
Valuables such as fine jewellery should be removed from drawers and never packed with your household goods. They will be most secure if they remain in your possession. If you have an extensive high-value collection, consider a third party service that specializes in transporting jewellery.
Dispose of aerosol spray cans, such as hairspray or deodorant, or take them with you. Other bottles should be carefully taped shut and wrapped to prevent leakage, then packed in small cartons. See our list of Items that cannot be shipped.
Bedding, Linens & Towels
Mattresses & Pillows
Mattresses should be placed in mattress cartons for added strength and cleanliness. Pillows may be placed in bureau drawers or packed in cartons. They also make good padding for other items.
Clocks & Mirrors
Glass mirrors should be packed in special mirror cartons. However, if they are especially heavy, crating is recommended. Ask your Personal Relocation Consultant about crating services.
Draperies & Curtains
Wardrobe cartons are ideal for moving curtains and drapes. Fold them lengthwise, place over a padded hanger, pin securely and hang in the wardrobe. Draperies and curtains also may be folded and packed in cartons lined with clean paper or plastic wrap.
