  Packing can be accomplished quickly and easily when you keep the following in mind.

Collect all of the supplies you will need

  • Boxes of various sizes . . . soon to be available at CUBE
  • Moving pads to protect your furniture
  • Packing tape
  • Bubble wrap and packing peanuts
  • Rope
  • Thick marker to label boxes
  • Notebook and pen for inventory list

Understand the fundamentals

  • Use smaller boxes for heavy items (i.e., books) and larger boxes for lighter items (i.e., clothing and linens).
  • Pack each box fully without over-packing. Each box should still be cube-shaped when it’s full. Use packing peanuts or other small items to fill gaps (socks and towels work well).
  • Secure each section of your CUBE with rope once packed. This will help keep your belongings from shifting during the move.
  • Label each box with a number and the room in which the contents belong (i.e., Box 1 - Kitchen).
  • Maintain an inventory of the box number, the room the box belongs in, and a detailed list of the contents. This will allow you to find any item easily.

Break up the packing into smaller chunks

  • Don’t try to do it all at once.
  • Tackle one room at a time starting with storage areas (basement and attic).
  • Taking frequent breaks to stretch will help you avoid injury.

Effectively utilize all spaces in your CUBE

  • Insert flat items between the walls of your CUBE and boxes.
  • Turn some items on their side to use vertical space as well as horizontal space.
