The Best Way To Pack A Moving Box

Moving is a long, arduous process. But it’s even worse when you arrive in your new home, open up a box, and find that your printer has shattered all the wine glasses it was packed with.

So to ease the moving drama, we’ve assembled some of our favourite tips for packing an efficient, secure, and (mostly) unbreakable moving box.

First, stay organised. Keep each box contained to one room of the house (no more printers packed with wine glasses!) this will also make unpacking much easier. Also be sure to put the heaviest object on the bottom of the box, so nothing gets crushed.

To handle your fragile goods, make some DIY packing peanuts, stuff t-shirts into any loose spaces, and place drinking glasses or light bulbs inside of socks for security. (If you haven’t packed your thick winter socks yet, that’s even safer.)

The video above has these tips plus a few more for stacking plates, wrapping up clothes on hangers, and quickly finding the end of the tape roll.
