Relocation can be a stressful process, bringing significant changes to your life and that of your family. When you’re moving, you have the option to pack your boxes yourself or rely on the expertise of a moving company.
At Nobel Relocation, we offer professional packing services to assist you during local moves or long-distance relocations to another state. Our packers are trained to handle international moves as well, equipped with the knowledge of properly filling up the inventory list.
If you decide to do your own packing, here are some helpful suggestions:
- Label each box with your name and job reference number.
- Use sturdy boxes, preferably provided by your mover.
- When packing fragile items, create a 2-4 inch layer of crumpled paper at the bottom, sides, and top of the box.
- Place heavier items at the bottom of the box, with lighter items on top.
CHINA AND GLASSWARE:
- Utilize china boxes and unprinted newspapers.
- Plates and saucers: Wrap each piece separately in an unprinted newspaper. Place them standing on the edge of the box.
- Bowls: Individually wrap each bowl, stack 4-2 together, wrap them as a group, and place them standing on the edge of the box.
- Cups and Glassware: Wrap cup handles in a piece of paper, then wrap the entire cup. Place them in a box with all handles pointing in the same direction. Wrap everyday glasses individually.
- Stemware: Use white packing paper and a china or liquor box with dividers. Wrap each glass individually and stand them on the rim inside the box.
- Books: Pack books standing on the bottom edge in book boxes.
- Clothing: Utilize wardrobe boxes for handling clothing. Fold and pack other clothing, blankets, and linens in linen boxes. We recommend emptying all dressers and chests, as the added weight can make them difficult to move and prone to damage.
- Pots and Pans: Use china boxes and stack them together with a few pieces of paper in between. Fill all empty spaces with newspaper.
- Lamps and Lampshades: Remove shades and bulbs. Wrap lamps in layers of paper and place them in a box on the base. Lightly wrap lampshades in paper, nest one inside the other, and pack them in a separate box.
- Electronic Equipment: Wrap these items extensively in bubble wrap and place them in a box, ideally using the original boxes. Add bubble wrap at the bottom and sides to prevent movement.
- Paintings, Mirrors, and Glass: Utilize picture boxes and bubble wrap for these items. Valuable pieces may require professional packing services.
