Packing breakables can be the most time consuming part of preparing for your move. Each glass, cup, plate, and bowl must be wrapped.

A great way to save time is to use a system of coloured labels. Even if you don't consider yourself ultra-organised, it's a simple time-saver. Buy large office labels in four or five colours and use different colours to denote different parts of the house (ex. yellow for the kitchen, blue for the bathroom etc.) Colour coding can be a quick visual reference.
  • Keep your pets out of the way (at a friends house) during loading.
  • Pack heavy items in small boxes, light items in larger boxes.
  • Remove shades and bulbs from lamps.
  • Put pictures in boxes, between sheets, blankets or towels for extra protection.
  • Stack plates and record albums on end vertically, not flat and stacked.
  • Dispose of flammable liquids.
  • Criss-cross tape across the bottom of boxes then up the sides to prevent boxes from breaking open.
Hopefully, by keeping these tips in mind, you will manage to avoid any moving mishaps.
