Free Moving Boxes

If you shop online often, it’s likely that you throw away or recycle countless cardboard boxes every year. These heavy-duty shipping boxes are great for moving as long as they’re in good condition. Just reinforce the bottom with extra packing tape to prevent the bottom from falling thru.

Pack Breakables in Clothing

Reduce the use of packing supplies by packing breakables inside clothing. Clothing items like scarves, socks and towels are great for providing cushioning for delicate items. Similarly, jackets and coats are perfect for wrapping electronics and larger items.

Use Your Luggage

Your luggage is great for storing your belongings when you travel, but they can also be useful storage for moving day as well. Suitcases are perfect for packing clothes, keeping them accessible and in good condition when you unpack.

Label Your Boxes

One of the biggest mistakes people make when packing is neglecting to properly label their boxes. This often leads to confusion and disorganization when it comes time to unload and unpack. All of your boxes should have the general contents of the box and what room it belongs in written in clear and legible font. It is also important to mark boxes as “FRAGILE” if applicable.
