Use the right size boxes.
Put heavy items, like books, in small boxes; light items, like linens and pillows, in bigger ones. (Large boxes packed with heavy items are a common complaint of professional movers. They not only make the job harder but also have a better chance of breaking.)


Put heavier items on the bottoms of boxes, lighter items on top.
And if you're loading the truck yourself, pack heavier boxes first, toward the front of the truck, for balance.
Don't leave empty spaces in the boxes.
Fill in gaps with clothing, towels, or packing paper. Movers often won't move boxes that feel loosely packed or unbalanced.
Avoid mixing items from different rooms in the same box.
It will make your packing quicker and your unpacking a lot easier, too.
Label each box with the room it's destined for and a description of its contents.
This will help you and your movers know where every box belongs in your new place. Numbering each box and keeping an inventory list in a small notebook is a good way to keep track of what you've packed―and to make sure you still have everything when you unpack.
Tape boxes well.
Use a couple of pieces of tape to close the bottom and top seams, then use one of the movers' techniques―making a couple of wraps all the way around the box's top and bottom edges, where stress is concentrated
