Tips for packing things without breaking them
You need to arrange each box or item so they can be moved efficiently. Go to each room and put boxes in the order they will be moved. You can even make a list and gather boxes of similar size together. Think ahead and the process will be finished quickly and easily.

The position of items

Move the biggest and heaviest things first. Kitchen appliances like washing machine, fridge, microwave, and dishwasher need to go first into the moving truck. Ask your friends, family members or movers to help you with carrying them. The can be quite massive, and at least two people need to load them. Put them as far away as you can in the moving truck. Be sure they are positioned upright. Balance everything by placing heavy objects on opposite sides.

Handle furniture with care

You don’t want to ruin your bed, table or skies so find a way to protect them. Use carpets or linens to place them inside it. Don’t forget to tape the rug on both ends when you wrap the object. You can do this with dissembled bed frames, tables, desks, skies, etc.

Handle fragile objects with care

The lighter boxes or boxes with delicate things need to be placed on top. Load them in the end after everything else is already in the truck. Find some soft material or use blankets to fill holes and to make sure that breakable items don’t move during the ride.
