Default Packers and Movers MD

If you decide to do the packing yourself, you will need to have everything properly packed and ready for loading when the moving van reaches. All packing should be completed the evening before moving day. Only essential personal items you'll need that night, the next morning and immediately at your destination should be left for last minute packing. Packing tips are extremely useful when it comes time to box up your household. By packing things appropriately and in an organized fashion, damage can be prevented. Plus, the better you pack, the easier it will be to unpack at your new residence. Packing tips are extremely useful when it comes time to box up your household.

Packing Tips
  • Pack one room at a time, labeling each box with a description of its contents and its destination (e.g., kitchen, bathroom).
  • Keep the weight of your boxes reasonable. If possible, put heavy items in small boxes to make them easier to carry.
  • Don't apply tape directly to polished or painted wood finishes. Removing the tape could ruin the surface.
  • Double-box fragile items and add plenty of cushioning.
  • Follow a timetable - people often underestimate how long it takes to pack!
  • Start with items you won't need right away, such as belongings stored in the basement, garage or attic
  • Packing room-by-room will help you stay organized
  • Establish work areas in each room
  • As you complete a room, sort packed boxes by weight (light, medium, heavy) to make loading the moving van easier and quicker
  • Limit cartons to a maximum weight of 50 pounds
  • For best results, have your mover pack:
  • Marble or glass tabletops, heavy wall ornaments and mirrors 40" x 60" or larger
  • Pool tables and pianos
  • Bulky, fragile items like large trophies, statues, chandeliers, etc.
  • Major appliances
