Packing Advice from Plymouth Moving and Storage

alt tag


The single most important component to any successful move is preparation.

Having all items properly boxed is a very important component to moving. Being well prepared reduces the risk of damage to your shipment. Loose items can damage other items during shipment. Being prepared will also save you money on your move, as your movers can move items far more effectively when all items are packed.

You will need an assortment of quality Moving Supplies. These include: Moving boxes, tape, wrapping paper, bubble wrap, wardrobe boxes, dish-pack boxes, picture and mirror boxes. Order Packing Supplies or Packing Supply Combo Packs.

Once you have established what you will need for supplies, Contact Plymouth Moving and we can take your supply order.

We will deliver supplies to your home or you can visit our Bourne office and pick up your supplies there.


Choose a room to work in. Make yourself comfortable, as packing can take a while, so you should pace yourself. Bring the materials needed to pack the room with you in advance. (Tape gun, boxes, paper, bubble wrap, black marker.)

As you pack the boxes, try to pack at waist level. Use a small table and chair if possible. Mark contents and room name of each box as you pack it, with a permanent marker.

Reinforce the bottom of all boxes with tape. Fill each box to its capacity, using paper or fillers to eliminate empty spaces. The top and sides of each box shouldn't bulge, nor should they cave in when closed

Restricted Items:
Your shipment should not include anything that is poisonous, flammable, corrosive or perishable. Such items include, but are not limited to, the following: Propane, Fertilizer, Paints/Solvents.
