How To Pack Safely & Securely

Once you’ve figured out which boxes to use, it’s time to pack! To properly secure your items within any box, packing paper must be used to ensure their safety during transport. Not only does this keep your items safe, but it keeps the boxes most secure when packing them into the truck.

There are two main types of packing paper which are typically used to pack most homes:

Packing paper white
Regular Packing Paper This paper is used mainly for kitchen packing. When placing dishes inside of a dishpack box, you can expect to use a generous amount of this type of packing paper.
Brown packing paper
Padded Packing Paper Is a bit less common and a little more expensive. This paper is thicker than the regular stuff, but protects heavy fragile items a little bit better. Padded paper is used to wrap up heavy glass items, smaller statues, pictures, televisions, and much more.
