Taking Care Of The Heavy Items
Many heavy items like books, records etc need to be packed if you plan on making moving them as easy as possible. Sometimes these items are too heavy for the boxes and hard to carry or they may also tear the box apart. Below are some of the tips we recommend at Movers4You Inc. to ensure that all heavy belongings are properly and safely packed.
Choose Proper Moving Boxes
We highly recommend using appropriate, strong moving boxes for the packing the heavy stuff. Heavy items should also be packed into a smaller carton. For example books should be packed into a 2 cube. This goes the same for weights, records or anything else that has significant weight. Packing them in a big box could make it awkward to carry.
Balance The Weight and Use Lots of Paper/Filling
When you are putting heavy items into a box make sure that you are distributing the weight throughout all 4 corners of the box to make it less difficult to carry. Do not put all the weight on one side. Also, make sure that you use lots of paper or other items such as towels to fill out the box, ensuring the heavy items do not move around during transportation or while being taken from/to the house.
