3 Things You Need to Know About Labeling Moving Boxes

This video will help you better understand why it’s important to label your moving boxes. Here are the 3 things you need to know:

  1. Always label each box and keep a master list of what each box contains. So if you have 3 bedroom boxes, label them “Bedroom 1”, “Bedroom 2”, and “Bedroom 3”, and on the master list write down what each box contains.
  2. Always label boxes that contain fragile items as “Fragile”. Movers try to be careful, but there is no point in taking any chances.
  3. Always put your contact address on every one of your moving boxes. Occasionally there might be a mix up and one or more of your boxes could end up at the wrong destination. You want to make sure that whoever does get your boxes knows how to contact you.
