Imagine packing away a truckload of boxes and then having them delivered to your new home. How can you tell what box goes where?
All items need to be properly labeled to thwart confusion. Download our printable labels and properly place on each item such as boxes trunks, refrigerators, microwaves, furniture, plastic storage bins, etc (you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view/print the labels). Label each and every box on at least two sides with a broad, felt-tipped heavy black marker.
Here is what we recommend marking on the label:
- Clearly mark your name on at least two sides of the box, the room it should go to and contents on each box.
- Indicate “FRAGILE” on delicates; “THIS END UP” where appropriate.
- If available, include your contract or container/bill of lading number on every box.
As you finish with each carton, list the contents on the side of the carton (for easy viewing while stacked) and in a special notebook. You might want to number and/or code the cartons as well. Feel free to use our inventory form provided with your welcome package.
