How to Pack Your Most Important Possessions

With over 80 years of experience as Rapid City movers, we at North Western Warehouse Co. know the importance of packing important items carefully in order to protect them during the move. Here are 3 tips that we recommend to our customers to protect their possessions as they pack for moving day.

Proper Packing Supplies

Each item should rely on the proper packing supplies to protect them. Some of the supplies that you can purchase include appropriate-sized boxes, bubble wrap, newspapers, and packing peanuts. If the items in question are furniture, then we recommend blankets, tarps, and/or furniture covers to protect the items. Choose the supplies that will best protect each item.

Strategic Placement

When putting items into boxes, it's important to choose the location strategically. Wrap the item with bubble wrap or newspaper then place it in the box. To ensure that the item won't roll around or bump into other items, put cardboard between each item. We also recommend filling extra space with packing peanuts or newspaper.

Clear Labels

After everything is packed into boxes, carefully tape the boxes closed to prevent them from opening in transit. Then, use a permanent marker to write on the box. Label it as "Fragile" to help us know that the box needs to be handled with caution. It would also be helpful to write "This Side Up" on the side if there would be a problem from tipping the box.

Extra Care Protection

If you are worried about some items, or are nervous about packing some of your more valuable household items, we offer Extra Care Protection to give you the most comprehensive valuation liability plan in the industry. With the Extra Care Protection, we provide the full replacement value or cost of repair for any item that is lost or damaged during the move. With the peace of mind that comes with this protection plan, we also guarantee that if a matched set is destroyed, you will be compensated for a new set if we are unable to find the exact replacement.

We don't recommend putting everything into boxes and hoping that everything will make it to its destination in one piece. If there are items that are especially important to you, the proper steps need to be taken in order to protect the item from incurring any damage during the move. If you have any questions about how to pack and handle items fragile items, talk to your Rapid City movers. Let us know that you have items that require special attention and care in order to ensure that they will arrive at their destination without any problems.
