Room by Room Packing Guide

NOR-CAL Moving Services, located in Hayward, CA, offers a wide range of moving and storage services to make your transition to a new home or office as smooth and stress-free as possible. One of the services we specialize in is packing, but if you want to do it yourself, here are our tips.

Garage/Hobby Room/Storage Room

Most of the time, garages and storage sheds take the most time to get ready for a move because they are full of odd-shaped, sharp, or heavy things that need special care to pack correctly.

Home Office

Pack the cords and cables in the same container as the electrical equipment they are meant to be used with, and label them so you will know which one belongs where.


Start packing your bedrooms for the move by starting with the guest rooms that you don’t use as often. Children can help by setting aside the toys and books they want to take with them and putting the rest in boxes.

Living/Family Room

Before moving day, your primary living space, which includes everything from electronics to lamps, requires some additional preparation. Start this room early to get a jump start.

Dining Room

In most homes, the dining room is where you display your finest and most delicate china, along with crystal stemware. Moving experts advise that each item be properly wrapped in paper and placed in dish-pack moving cartons. Cellular dividers are advised for use with stemware.

Kitchen/Laundry Room

As soon as you have confirmation that you will be relocating, you can almost immediately start packing your kitchen. Start with your seasonal things, serving plates you don’t use as often, and any little gadgets you have that you don’t use every day.

Large Appliances

In order to prevent the growth of mildew and mold, it is imperative that major appliances be thoroughly cleaned and allowed to air dry before being packed up for the move.

Valuable Items

Instead of putting precious or irreplaceable objects on the truck, you should transport them with you personally so you don’t have to worry about them getting broken or misplaced.

Types of Boxes

NOR-CAL Moving Services has boxes for everything you need to pack. Our boxes come in many different sizes and strengths to make sure that moving is safe and easy.
