Packing Guidelines

Top Notch Movers offers complete goods packing. We commit to be cautious and handle all your items carefully. Although most of our customers choose us to do their packing, you may also choose to pack your goods on your own whether you are moving locally or having a long distance move.

The following guidelines will assist you in preparing towards your move:

  • Once you decide to pack your goods on your own, you’ll need to have everything properly packed and ready for loading when our crew arrives at your place. In other words, all packing should be completed the evening before your moving day.
  • Self-packing is expected to meet specific standards. Our Top Notch Movers foreman will inspect your boxes and determine if your goods are properly packed. In the case of improper packing, the cartons are susceptible to damage. If torn, ripped or soiled, they will not close or cannot be sealed, you will be asked either to fix or replace those with new boxes.
  • Fragile items packing recommendations: Pack 80% of the box with fragile items, and the remaining 20% pack with bubble wrap and wrapping paper. Try to layer the bubble wrap and paper in between your items.

 

Small Box

Size: 16⅜ X 12½ X 12½

  • Small boxes commonly used for moving high-value fragile items. It is also common to wrap fragile items with a bubble wrap and to add wrapping paper to the top and bottom of the box before closing it.
  • Small boxes may be used for books, loose items, documents, photo albums etc.
  • It is also common to use small boxes for long distance moves from FL, as these boxes usually keep the items in better shape.
Medium Box

Size: 18 X 18 X 16

  • Medium boxes commonly used for bedding items, towels, large photo albums and other fragile items that could not fit the small boxes.
  • It is also common to use medium boxes for local moves for two reasons:
    • Medium boxes are less heavy then larger boxes, and easier to maneuver thought the house /apartment while you unpack.
    • Medium boxes will hold better than larger boxes.
Dish Box

Size: 18 X 18 X 28

  • Dish pack boxes are one size larger than the large box, and thicker than any other box.
  • The purpose of a dish pack box is to move fragile items such as china sets and glass items.
Large Box

Size: 18 X 18 X 24

  • Large boxes are commonly used for large bedding items, cloths, toys, large kitchenware and large loose items.
  • Whether it’s a state-to-state move, or a county-to-county move, there are many ways to pack a large box. At Top Notch Movers we always recommend our customers to use bubble wrap and wrapping paper in the bottom and top of the box.
Wardrobe Box

Size: 24 X 20 X 46

  • The Wardrobe box with metal hanging bar can help you move or store hanging clothes.
  • Wardrobe boxes are very easy to use and convenient when you need to move your clothes from one closet to another.
  • Wardrobe boxes will protect your clothes while they are stored during your move.

    Great company, Great service!!
    Love the attitude of the owner: calm and honest! He made me feel like family, and the workers took good care of my belongings. Nothing is worth more than knowing that your things are safe and that you are in their minds.
    They are professionals. They know how to pack and unpack with extra care.
    I will definitely call them again for my next move.
    Thank you so much Top Notch Movers.

    I had an out of state move with these guys, from Lauderhill to NYC, and Franko, David, Oliver have been great to work with. They carried out the service they advertised and made our move as flawless as it can be. We had a team who were quick, efficient, and set the bar very high!
    Very responsive as well to questions and concerns. 5/5 stars!

    I hired Top Notch Movers to relocate my elderly father from his apartment to an Assisted Living Facility. It was a local move of about 15 miles, but they had to separate and inventory what was going with him and put the rest in Storage. The crew was patient and kind with my dad, even when he repeated himself several times and watched their every movement. Everything was carefully prepared, moved to the correct location, and set up in its proper place. The storage is stacked like a work of art and the cost was very reasonable! The guys wore masks and gloves, and even the back of the truck was spotlessly clean. I will definitely use them again and highly recommend Top Notch for anyone who needs a reliable mover. Oliver and Francko were so professional- truly Top Notch!

    We moved close to month ago, just done with our unpacking of boxes and there is none damages.
    At the beginning we called couple of time to Top Notch movers office to ask where is our goods and that we can find our stuff.
    Francine is amazing! she comes us down every time, told us that it will take some time to find what we are looking for.
    to move 4 bedroom house with full garage wasn't easy ( and we even didn't pack anything. ) Top Notch Local crew packed all our goods in 1 day and it took us 3 weeks to unpack everything! crazy!
    This is one of the best experience that we had.
    Thank you guys for your quick respond and toleration with us even after the move day.
    Thank you again.
