For many people, having to move can become a stressful task. 

Scatman Moving and Delivery can handle all of your packing needs for you.  If you decide to do your own packing, here are a few suggestions to assist you along the way.

  • Pack one room at a time
  • Label each carton with its destination (what room it will go into) before you seal it.
  • Make sure you have enough wardrobe boxes for your hanger clothes.
  • Pack what you need least first.  For example, if you move in the fall, pack your summer clothing first.
  • Pack heavy items in small boxes,  and towels in medium sized boxes.
  • Try to keep the weight of the boxes under 50 lbs.
  • Mark all boxes designating room and box number.
  • Create a log to show the number of boxes packed per room and the number of cartons packed. This will make it easy to access any lost boxes.
  • Start packing way ahead of the move.
  • Pack a few boxes daily to make moving day a little less stressful.
  • Be sure to have plenty of packing material available such as: bubble wrap, newspaper, tissue and tape.
  • Be sure that the bottoms of all your cartons are taped securely and will hold the weight of the contents.
  • Packing tape or gummed tape is far better than masking tape.
  • Pack heavier items toward the bottom of the box and lighter items on the top.
  • If you don't need it..don't pack it, Donate...Donate...Donate!
