Maplewood, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/08/2017 -- Oftentimes, it is very difficult for homeowners to pack up all of their belongings and change locations to a new home. It may seem difficult or surmounting; however, it is important to keep in mind that no task is impossible. Harrington Movers is here to give homeowners a few tips for packing up their boxes for their move so it is both safe and efficient.
A good way to remember what is inside of the packed box is to snap a quick picture with either a smartphone or a camera if one is available. Once the picture is taken, print it out and tape it carefully to the outside of the box so that the image is visible. Later, when the homeowner is unpacking, the image will help depict what the contents are inside, making the process inevitably go smoother.
It is also important for homeowners to keep in mind that heavier items should be placed on the bottom of boxes and not on the top. With lighter items on top, the box will not only become top heavy, but unbalanced as well. Packing heavier things on the bottom makes it so the box is easier to carry and has less pressure on the bottom belongings. Items, like plates, can also be stacked vertically to avoid breakage and any damages while in transit. Breakable items should always be packed in a double wall box. Labeling the location on the side of your box will help the movers deliver them to the proper rooms for you.
It is important to understand that when you choose to pack your own items they are not insurable with your mover. We always recommend you starting by organizing and packing the soft goods. Leave the breakables to the professionals at Harrington Movers to pack. Harrington Movers even has a line of all white double wall boxes upon special request.

They value all items in their care, and even take care of high-priority items like pianos or safes. Give them a call today, by dialing: 973-210-4813 or visiting their website for more information.
