Packing is a crucial part of your move. An organized and planned packing process will allow you to start your new life at your location quickly and easily. Brothers Moving & Storage have come up with some important tips in order for you to create a smooth packing process.

  1. If you plan to do your own packing, start well in advance of move day.  Pack the out of season items. This avoids last minute rushing which causes stress.
  2. Boxes should not exceed 50lbs.
  3. A good packing rule: the smaller the box, the heavier contents can be.  The larger the box the lighter the contents.
  4. Always have a parts box for screws, bolts, etc. and label them so they are easy to find at destination.
  5. When marking boxes, we suggest you mark contents and new location/room to be placed at destination.
  6. Mark fragile boxes as such.
  7. When marking boxes, make sure to run tape in both directions. Perpendicular on the bottom and do the same on top when sealing the box.
  8. Make sure fragile items are cushioned on the top and bottom and are wrapped safely.
  9. Be generous with the cushioning material. NOTE: having less empty space in a box will help prevent damage.
  10. Don’t use printed newspaper as wrapping. The ink can transfer onto your belongings.


When you think of choosing the right local company to help you during your move. Make sure to consider everything.  Move companies should be licensed and insured. Have a local DOT number for local moves and a MC Number for long distance moves.  With Brothers Moving & Storage you get the company that will take care of you from beginning to end, we offer many services to include:  packing, unpacking, loading of PODS and Rental Trucks, Unloading of PODS and Rental Trucks, taking you down the street, across the hall, or across the state.  We at Brothers Moving & Storage are the small family owned company that will give your family the care and respect during the entire process from calling for a free quote to excellent customer service, movers who are trained several times a year and professional packers to pack your house.
