Stress-Relieving Packing Tips from MacDougall Transfer & Storage Ltd.

As a courtesy to our web site visitors, all of whom we hope will be future customers, MacDougall Transfer & Storage Ltd. offers the following advice for use during your moving and packing process:
  • Make sure you have plenty of boxes, packing paper, tape and a marker handy
  • Use crushed paper to line the bottom of the box
  • After wrapping plates, stand them on their side - do not lay flat
  • After wrapping glasses, stand them upside down - do not lay them on their side
  • Use layers of paper in between items for added protection
  • Boxes should be packed tightly with no room for things to move around
  • Write the name of the room on the outside of the box for easier unloading
  • Write your last name on the box for long distance moves
  • Do not pack flammable or explosive materials or propane tanks
