The way you prepare your belongings for moving in Aurora will make a difference in the speed of your move and the condition in which they arrive. General guidelines for packaging is pretty much common sense.

Be sure to place heavier items in smaller boxes and light, bulky items in larger boxes. Do not over or under pack boxes. If you over pack a box it is likely to break open. Under packing a box will likely cause the box to crush or dent. Make sure you pack all your boxes completely to the top. Avoid putting fragile, breakable items on the very top.

Use sturdy boxes. Boxes that have seen many moves may not keep your belongings as safe as a newer box. Used grocery store boxes can work fine for sturdy items, but pack breakables in something more suitable.

Use plenty of packing materials, packing paper, Styrofoam peanuts, bubble wrap. It is very important to put a good layer of materials at the bottom of boxes containing fragile items.

These are just a few pointers for packing. If you have any further questions about packing your boxes please don’t hesitate to call our office at (630) 790-2500 or visit our website for more info.
