Should You Decide To Pack Yourself, Here Are Some Questions You May Have:
“What About Packing? What Do I Need? And How Long Will It Take?”
You can save a lot of money if you do the bulk of the packing on your own. We’ve prepared a general Packing Guideline, to help you plan the preparation for your move. Depending on the size of your home, you should start packing about 2 – 4 weeks prior to your move. Whatever you do – Don’t leave it to the last minute! You don’t want to rush when it comes to packing your belongings. Give yourself time to do it right.
“What Needs To Be Boxed? And Where Do I Get Boxes?”
All loose belongings need to be boxed. This even includes more challenging items like paintings, TV’s, electronics, and lamps. They all need to be protected.
You can purchase clean, new boxes from A Wise Move that are double-corrugated for extra strength and available in special sizes that make it much easier and safer to pack your belongings. We suggest that you call your relocation consultant to schedule a free delivery of your boxes and other packing materials. For prices and sizes, see our Packing Supplies section.
Before you start packing, it’s important to know how many boxes your move will require. This will help you budget your time and money. Use the chart below to help you estimate.
