Packing is arguably the most important part of moving. People who need to move tend to worry about their furniture first and everything in boxes second. It seems that once something is in a box the, "out of sight, out of mind" mentality begins to take shape and people shift their focus towards item in view.
When it comes to packing your boxes, not all boxes are created equal. Believe it or not, size does matter! Heavier items such as books and magazines should go in small boxes that are easy to pick up and are not bulky. You do not want to lug a box down a flight of stairs in a Boston building built 100 years ago if the box is so big you cannot see your next step!
Of course there are also boxes that are meant for specific items. Letter boxes come in handy when you are moving a home office and have important documents to bring with you to your new home. Do not fill wardrobe boxes full of office paperwork though, it would be impossible to lift (If you can lift it though, call us...seriously, we'll hire you).
