A Few Packing
- Use small boxes
for heavier items; larger boxes for light weight, bulky items.
- Wrap small and/or
fragile items individually.
- Stuff top, bottom
and sides of boxes with paper. This helps prevent shifting, rubbing
and possible breakage.

of every box and the room where it belongs. Group boxes together that
belong in the same room. Label any boxes/items "STORAGE"
that will be stored for you.
- Use double corrugated
- Cushion the bottom
with rolled up paper.
- Wrap each piece
- Bundle flatware
in groups of three and wrap the bundle.
- Don't place one
layer of dishware directly on top of another; separate with a layer
of stuffed paper.
- Cushion the top
and sides with paper to prevent shifting. The steadier the contents,
the less chance of damages.

in wardrobe boxes.

medium size boxes. Use paper to protect and keep pairs seperated.

In order to safely
transport certain items, particularly artwork, marble and glass, it
is often necessary to create a custom crate. There
are several types of packing crates we at Appaloosa
Moving and Storage, Inc. employ:
For items such as glass doors, oversized televisions, most artwork,
sculptures, and marble, a custom cardboard crate
will be created on-location on the day of the move from cardboard
sheets and boxes. The inside of the cardboard crate
exterior will be padded with furniture pads, white
paper or bubble wrap as needed. This is the most cost effective option.
Custom wood crates are the better choice for frail
or high valued antiques, frail or exceptional artwork, sculptures,
and items of high value, and items being shipped long distance.
Custom wood crates must be custom made by our professional
craftsman prior to the move.
