  If you choose to use your own boxes, make sure they are not old and dilapidated

•    Be organized in your packing

•    Make sure you tape the top and the bottom of your boxes
•    Use plenty of packing material when packing dishes, glassware, or any breakable or fragile items
•    Wrap each item separately with plenty of packing material
•    Make sure the items in the box cannot move around
•    Make sure you put a layer of packing material on the bottom and on the top of the box
•    For glass items such as plates, bowls, glass, and picture frame, pack vertically
•    Use small boxes for packing books, cd’s, and other heavy items
•    Use large boxes for toys and linens
•    Use picture boxes for larger pictures and make sure the sides are covered with packing tape
•    Label your boxes correctly:  Fragile, Heavy, Liquids and the contents of the box
