Packaging Tips

Use the right size boxes.

Put heavy items, like books, in small boxes; light items, like linens and pillows, in bigger ones. (Large boxes packed with heavy items are a common complaint of professional movers. They not only make the job harder but also have a better chance of breaking.)

Stay clean.

Regular newspaper may bleed ink onto your possessions. Use white packing paper to wrap all items.

Jugaad doesnt work.

Use YSD boxes designed for storage. Boxes obtained from grocery are not always clean and might not hold the weight of the items that you will be putting in them. In addition, varying box sizes can make loading more difficult.

Don't leave empty spaces in the boxes.

Fill in gaps with clothing, towels, or packing paper. Unbalanced or loose boxes are troublesome in moving and storing.

Avoid mixing items from different rooms in the same box.

It will make your packing quicker and your unpacking a lot easier, too.

Bundle breakables.

As you pack your dishes, put packing paper around each one, then wrap bundles of five or six together with more paper. Pack dishes on their sides, never flat. And use plenty of bunched-up paper as padding above and below. Cups and bowls can be placed inside one another, with paper in between, and wrapped three or four in a bundle. Pack them all in dish-barrel boxes. Or you can use Use Styrofoam plates between your regular dishes so they will not break.

Consider other items that will need special treatment.

Packaging help check

  • Use packing tape, not duct tape to seal boxes.
  • When packing boxes, remember that towels, washcloths, and socks make excellent packing material for fragile items.
  • Use masking tape to make a large 'X' on any mirrors, curio cabinets, anything with glass. This may not prevent it from breaking from vibration but will help contain broken glass, as much of it will stick to the tape. Consider removing glass panels and packing them flat inside a drawer or mirror box. Take the measurements to a packing store and you can have a box made.
  • If you need to take apart furniture, wrap the screws and label the pack with what furniture it belongs to. Tape it to the wrapped furniture.
