Econo Moving & Storage offers an array of packing supplies. See the list of items on the Box Supplies page.
Make sure that you have enough boxes when you begin packing, and have a few set aside for moving day. Start by gathering all of your packing supplies, boxes, scissors, tape, packing paper, labels and felt markers. Find an area to work from, such as the dining room, or a spare bedroom. Spread out a protective cover on the dining room table, or on the floor to create a working station. Pack one room at a time, and then move on to the next. It is easiest to keep packed boxes out of the way in a designated room. Pack like things together, so they will be easier to find, and more delicate items will not get damaged. Make sure to clearly label each box, and label ‘Fragile’ if necessary.
Start by packing seasonal items, such as Christmas ornaments and last season’s clothes. Pack any extras of certain items you may have, such as stereos, bathroom items (toothpaste, shampoo, etc.), or anything you may not be using. Make sure to label them with the room destination, so you don’t have to open them up again before the move.
Designate one box for each member of the family and each room of the house. These boxes will be for items that will be needed immediately upon arrival of the new residence. These can be items such as linens, toothbrushes, tools, etc.
Labelling & Keeping Inventory
When packing, clearly label the destination of the box with a felt marker. If possible, label the boxes with specific colours, so it is easier to determine the room destination when the movers are unloading.
It is also a good idea to number the boxes. While you are packing, write down the box number and the key items that it contains. This will make it easier when you are first unpacking and looking for something specific.
