  • When packing, fill boxes until they are full and pack newspaper or shredded paper to fill in any empty space
  • Don’t pack too many items into one box or they might be too heavy to lift
  • Seal boxes with packing tape to avoid any dust collecting on your belongings while in storage
  • Wrap fragile items in paper, towels or rags and pack them tightly
  • Make sure your items are dry in order to prevent mold during storage
  • Label contents of each box and make note of fragile items
  • Use bubble wrap to pack large, fragile items such as mirrors and frames
