Use the right size boxes.

Put heavy items, like books, in small boxes; light items, like linens and pillows, in bigger ones. Large boxes packed with heavy items not only make the job harder but also have a better chance of breaking. Put heavier items on the bottoms of boxes, lighter items on top.

Z

Don’t leave empty spaces in the boxes.

Fill in gaps with clothing, towels, or packing paper. Loosely packed or unbalanced boxes can lead to breakage or dropping.

It will make your packing quicker and your unpacking a lot easier, too.
Z

Label each box with the room and its contents.

This will help you and your movers know where every box belongs in your new place. Numbering each box and keeping an inventory list in a small notebook is a good way to keep track of what you’ve packed, and to make sure you still have everything when you unpack.
Z

Tape boxes well.

Use a couple of pieces of tape to close the bottom and top seams, then use the movers’ technique: make a couple of wraps all the way around the box’s top and bottom edges, where stress is concentrated.
Z

Bundle breakables.

As you pack your dishes, put packing paper around each one, then wrap bundles of five or six together with more paper. Pack dishes on their sides, never flat. And use plenty of bunched-up paper as padding above and below. Cups and bowls can be placed inside one another, with paper in between, and wrapped three or four in a bundle. Pack them all in dish-barrel boxes.
Z

If moving expensive art, consider special crating.

Never wrap oil paintings in regular paper; it will stick. For pictures framed behind glass, make an X with masking tape across the glass to strengthen it and to hold it together if it shatters. Then wrap the pictures in paper or bubble wrap and put them in a frame box, with a piece of cardboard between each framed piece for protection.
Z

Consider other items that will need special treatment.

Treat TVs like any other piece of furniture, wrapping them in quilted furniture pads. Plasma TVs, however, require special wooden crates for shipping if you don’t have the original box and can be ruined if laid flat. Its a good idea to double-box your TV, setting the box containing the TV into another box that you’ve padded with packing paper.

Gather packing supplies before you start.

There’s nothing more frustrating, then having to stop half-way through a packing session in order to get more supplies.
