Tip Of The Day

Don’t waste your pillows and cushions!

By |September 30th, 2019|

When packing certain items, such as lampstands, that leave a lot of empty room in a box, use your pillows and cushions to fill the extra space. This will keep the items from being shaken around in the box during your move while also giving you a convenient and useful place to pack your extra pillows and cushions!

Preparing a Dresser for the Move

By |September 23rd, 2019|

First, take anything that is breakable (e.g. glass) out of the dresser drawers. Next, check the heaviness of the dresser to see if it will be able to be carried with its current contents. If it is too heavy, take out some or all of the contents until it is at a manageable weight. Once the desired weight is achieved, wrap the dresser in shrink wrap to keep the drawers from falling out. (If you are worried about the dresser getting scratched, put a blanket over the dresser before you wrap it.) After the dresser is wrapped, it will officially be ready to be moved into your new place!

Packing Books

Always pack books inside of a small box. Yes, you can fit more books into a bigger box…but it will very quickly become too heavy to pick up. When the time comes to actually move your boxes of books, you will be incredibly grateful that you went with the small boxes over the larger ones. (Photo by Ed Robertson on Unsplash)
