Our professionally trained crews will pack your fragile belongings into specially-designed cartons. This ensures that if you were to pick up a box packed by us and dropped it, nothing would break inside.

If you prefer to do your own packing, we have provided the following Guidelines For Self-Packing Your Move and remember paper is cheap but your treasures are not!

Start packing early. Four to six weeks ahead is not too soon. Begin with the areas not frequently used, i.e., basement, attic, and closet shelves. Pack a few boxes each day, whenever you have some extra time. Schedule several days for final packing just before the move.

Dishes, Glass, and Ceramic Ware:

Carefully wrap articles with two or more sheets of packing paper (packing paper avoids inky residues of newspaper) and place in a Dishpak box. This is an extra heavy box designed for fragile items. Mark the box "Fragile – Glassware" and tape the top and bottom closed. Don't forget to put crushed paper in the bottom of the box to cushion the items inside.

Canned Foods, Books, Records, and Other Small Items:

Place these in a Book Box. Mark the lid with the contents and tape top and bottom closed.

Blankets, Linens, Pillows, Lampshades, and Other Light, Bulky Items:

Place these items in a Medium Box, Large or X-Large Box. Do not pack these boxes with more than 50 lbs. (i.e., no canned goods, books, etc.). Mark with contents and tape top and bottom closed.

Mirrors, Pictures, Paintings, and Glass Tops:

These items must be packed in a Mirror Pak box. These boxes are a requirement for these types of items on local and long-distance moves.

Shovels, Fishing Rods, Brooms, etc:

It is difficult to carry these items individually, so we ask that these be tied or taped into bundles and place into Lamp Boxes.

Note: When labeling boxes, please specify in which room each box should be placed in the new location.
