Packing Tips

Packing before moving day

Avoid Packing on Moving Day

Being packed ahead of time will take the stress out of moving day, allowing us to handle the rest. Or, let Z Movers pack for you! 

Last In Will Be First Out

Let us know which boxes you’ll need first and we’ll be sure to load those last onto our trucks.

Vary Your Box Sizes

Your items come in all shapes and sizes, so be sure to order a variety of different boxes. You’ll need plenty of small and medium boxes, but don’t forget about wardrobe boxes, too. 

Be Prepared with Plenty of Boxes

We all underestimate the amount of stuff we actually have. Be prepared ahead of time by ordering a few more boxes than you think you’ll need. You’ll most likely fill them!

Use Packing Paper

Use packing paper instead of newspaper to wrap items. You’ll avoid the annoying transfer of newspaper print onto your items.

Label Everything

Avoid confusion by clearly labeling each box by room and noting its contents.

What Goes Together, Stays Together

Pack items from the same room in the same box. Trust us, it will make unpacking way less stressful!

Avoid Over-Packing

Never over-pack a box (items may break) and remember the golden rule of packing: the heavier the item, the smaller the box!
