One of the most noted concerns from consumers today when planning a relocation is how their belongings will be packed. For those who pack their own – it can be challenging to figure out the best, safest, and most efficient techniques which can result in damaged or even misplaced items. As a reputable and leading Boston moving company – knowing how to pack or how to guide our valued Milvus customers on how to pack their own contents is absolutely essential.

While some Boston movers may use a variety of moving boxes as they become available – our experienced Milvus team believes in uniformity for proper weight distribution, handling, and stacking. In addition, when using cardboard boxes – we prefer only the best quality with durable layers of protection to minimize breakage or collapse. Plus, as a versatile Boston moving company, we offer the use of rented plastic moving crates for even better containment of your possessions, contingent upon your personal preference.

Regardless of your chosen box style, Milvus is specifically trained in all of the proper methods of packing and protecting from standard household objects to special items that will require particular materials for extra protection whether we are packing your antiques, family heirlooms or other artifacts.

Just let us know what you will prefer – the Milvus partial or full packing services. Of course, if you still want to pack your own, here are a few packing tips from the best Boston moving experts at Milvus to make things easier for you:

  • Purchase unvarying and high-quality cardboard moving boxes. Free boxes from friends or other places will not provide the stacking uniformity or reliability that you will need for safe handling and loading.
  • Consider renting plastic moving crates. These containers are preformed with attached lids and do not need to be assembled or sealed.
  • Check with us at Milvus about our box delivery service
  • Take inventory of your contents and figure out what you plan to leave behind. You may have old or outdated items that you will not want in your new residence.
  • Sell the items that you are not keeping in a yard sale to make a few extra dollars
  • Contact your local waste management company about taking discarded items
  • Call up local charities to pick up anything that you may be donating.
  • Never mix metal or glass items together in boxes to avoid damage
  • Put heavy items in small boxes and put light items in large boxes
  • Use packing materials to protect box contents and to fill in empty spaces
  • Create an inventory list and label each box with its contents along with a number or color reference to your list
  • Do not pack toxic or flammable chemicals for your own safety as well as the safety of your contents
