Seller Moving Tips – #6

Packing Up the House

Many of us would enjoy our move more if our houses could pack themselves. Until an incredibly brilliant scientist figures out a way to make that happen, here are some helpful tips:

  • Stock up on packing supplies such as tape, boxes, bubble-wrap, scissors, newspaper, permanent marker and tissue. Pack electronics in their original boxes if possible.
  • Be sure not to load more than 50 pounds worth of your belongings in one box. Smaller boxes, even though you will use more, are easier to pack and transport.
  • Label your boxes according to the room in which they need to go. If you plan to keep some boxes for future use, place a piece of masking tape on the box and write on the masking tape so you can remove it later.
  • Use towels and blankets to wrap fragile items if needed. You’ll keep your valuables safe and save space at the same time.
  • Clearly mark all boxes containing fragile items and avoid stacking heavier items on top that might crush or damage them.
