First, prepare a suitable working surface. A kitchen or dining room table will do, provided the top is covered with a blanket to protect the surface. Avoid stress on your back with excessive bending over. Boxes should be well taped, with at least 3 strips of tape across the seams of the bottom and top of each box. Also, be sure to clearly mark on the top and at least 2 sides of each box with the room where the box should be placed at the destination. In addition, clearly mark any delicate box as FRAGILE. The most fragile should be marked TOP LOAD ONLY.
Computer, stereo or TV equipment is best moved in the original box. If these are not available, a linen or dish pack will usually work, provided plenty of bubble wrap or rolled up packing paper is used to protect your delicate equipment. These boxes should always be marked fragile. If you don’t have a box big enough for the tv, we can wrap it in our furniture pads on the day of the move.
