Packing

How do you pack specific items?

Plates and Flat China
Begin with the larger items. Smaller items can go toward the top. Wrap each piece individually with several pieces of newsprint. Next, wrap three to five previously wrapped plates together and stand each bundle on its edge. Never lay plates flat. Add 3-4 inches of crumpled paper and a cardboard divider before creating a second level.

Glassware and Crystal
Always individually wrap each glass and never put one piece inside another. Place on the very top level of your carton and pack rim down. Especially fragile items should be packed in a separate carton and then packed in a larger carton surrounded by cushioning.

Bowls
Wrap individually and then nest two to three together and wrap as an entire package. Place on end or flat. Use crumpled paper and a cardboard divider before adding layers.

Lamps
Remove shade, bulb and harp assembly. Double wrap the bulb and harp assembly. Wrap the base and cushion it in a dish pack or similar type box. For lampshades, select the carton size close to the shade measurements. Pack only one shade per container. Don't use crumpled newsprint inside or around the outside of the shade. Glass lampshades and chandeliers should be professionally packed in sturdy crates.

Food
Of course, never pack perishable items, aerosol kitchen products or frozen food. Box dry foods in medium-sized cartons after taping any openings or tops closed. Jars should be also taped shut and wrapped as well as cushioned. Pack cans and jars in smaller cartons.

Clothing
Clothing can be left in sturdy dressers or packed in suitcases, if desired. Other foldable clothing should be packed in medium-sized cartons. Hanging clothing should be packed in wardrobe cartons available from your 1st Choice Moving & Storage representative. If wardrobe cartons are not used, be sure to remove hangers and pack in lined cartons. Hats should be left in their boxes and packed in moving cartons. Small boxes loosely filled with newsprint also help protect hats.

Mirrors, Glass Table Tops, Pictures, Paintings, etc.
We recommend purchasing special boxes for all but the smallest items in this category. Mirror and picture cartons can handle most items. Only one article should be packed in each carton. You will want to consider professional crating assistance for oversized or heavy items such as table tops.

Glasses and Cups
Wrap individually. Cups with handles should be cushioned with another layer of paper. Pack with rims down. Cushion and layer with crumpled paper.

Books
Pack in smaller boxes with open edges alternating with the bindings. Hardcover books, or those with fragile covers should be wrapped for protection.

Draperies and Curtains
Wardrobe cartons are excellent for hanging curtains and drapes. You can also fold them and pack in boxes that have been lined with clean newsprint.

Bedding
Mattresses must be covered to protect them from soil and damage. Appropriate sized cartons are recommended and available from your 1st Choice representative.

Small Appliances
Clocks, radios and other small appliances should be individually wrapped and packed along with linens and towels or surrounded with crushed paper for protection.

Flowers and Plants
Live plants and potted flowers will likely not survive a long distance move. Check with your 1st Choice representative for specific rules regarding these items. Artificial flower arrangements should be carefully wrapped and packed in individual cartons. If possible, secure the arrangement to the bottom of the box. Cushion and label appropriately.

Electronics and Clocks
Original manufacturers packaging with Styrofoam inserts provides the best protection for moving electronic goods. If these are not available, large or medium cartons should be used and the item well wrapped and cushioned. Larger home electronics such as consoles and large screen TVs should not be packed and will be moved as furniture. Computers and grandfather clocks require special pre-move preparation. Consult with your 1st Choice representative or a local dealer to determine what is required for moving these items.

Washing Machines
Washing machines should have all hoses disconnected and put into containers. If you place hoses in the tub or drum, be sure to wrap the metal couplings with cloth or paper to avoid damage to the tub's surface. Unplug the electric cord and tape to the back. Secure the washer drum with materials available from your 1st Choice representative.

Major Appliances
Many appliances require special servicing, disconnecting and preparation. Upon request, your 1st Choice representative will arrange third party services to prepare these items for your move. For many items, however, you may be able to perform most of the requirements yourself.

Refrigerators
Refrigerators should be emptied of all food. Shelves should be secured in place or detached and wrapped. The electric cord should be unplugged and taped to the back. If there is an icemaker, it should be disconnected from the water line and drained in advance.

Tools Any power tools containing gasoline or oil should be drained before moving. Long handled tools can be bundled. Hand tools should be wrapped and packed.
