Packing Tips

Moving your entire world from one place to another can seem like an overwhelming task if you approach it from the wrong angle. With over 90 years of experience moves homes and businesses, we are confident that we can help you simplify and organize any move. At O’Neill Moving & Storage, our job is to make your life easier.

Packing is an essential part of moving and staying organized is essential to success. We’ve put together a list of packing tips that can help any homeowner speed up the packing process.

  • If possible, pack linens and clothing in suitcases rather than boxes
  • Pack one room at a time, and label each box clearly with the intended room
  • Label each box with the general contents
  • Have any area rugs professionally cleaned before your move
  • Give each family member or room a special color code to make unpacking easier
  • Use large boxes for light items, small boxes for heavy items, and medium boxes for anything in the middle
  • Always place heavier items on the bottom of the box with lighter items on top
  • Never pack combustibles or flammables
  • Label any boxes that hold fragile items clearly
