Alberta Movers Packing Tips

Believe it or not there is an art to packing moving boxes, you may not notice when you do it right but you will definitely notice if you do it wrong. When packing small boxes for Calgary moving you should stack books and pictures vertically to avoid unnecessary empty space. Then place magazines on top horizontally to fill up the box to the top. This will prevent the box from collapsing so its contents won't be damaged. For extra protection, you should double tape the bottom of the box. These boxes are usually used for the base so it is not recommended to pack fragile items in this box.

Another packing rule is that the bigger the box the lighter it should be. Use fluffy cushioned items to insulate more fragile items. You can purchase or Alberta Movers can provide special packing materials such as bubble wrap and unprinted newsprint. These items will make packing for Edmonton moving much easier.

There are also special moving boxes for china, mirrors, and one of the most helpful is a convenient wardrobe box. Wardrobe boxes make it simple, you can just carry your clothes out on hangers, hang them in the box and your clothes are ready to wear when you complete your move.
