Packing List

Looking for a packing list for an upcoming move? Hansen Bros. Moving & Storage has compiled some excellent resource guides to help – Packing 101 and Packing 102.

As Seattle’s premier moving and storage company for over 120 years, we’ve learned many invaluable packing tips, such as:

  • The heavier the item, the smaller the carton should be.
  • Mark all boxes, designating room and box number. Make a carton identification log to show the number of boxes packed per room, and the total number of cartons packed.
  • Be sure that the bottoms of all cartons are secured and will hold the weight of the contents.
  • Pack heavier items toward the bottom of the box and lighter items toward the top.

Hansen's did a great job with our move. Everything arrived in perfect condition. The staff--packers, movers, and office managers--have been extremely courteous and responsive. Our move was complicated by having a split between household effects--some going to storage and some going to a location on Whidbey Island. We will definitely be using Hansen Bros. on our next move and would recommend them to anyone needing such services. Mark D., 3/10/2017
