Helpful Tips on Packing
Tip 1: Collect boxes. Boxes are the most essential materials in packing. You can collect boxes in different sizes. Grocery stores are a good source of boxes. You can also find boxes in liquor stores and general merchandise. If you prefer to buy boxes, purchase them in uniform size for easy stacking.
Tip 2: Gather cushions for your fragile items. Bubble wraps, dish packs and shrink wraps will provide a good cushion to your delicate and fragile valuables. Plastic bags are also ideal in a moving vehicle. They can provide protection for mirrors and frames in a moving van.
