With our comprehensive packing guide, Allied has taken the difficulty of packing and simplified the process. Our room by room packing guide gives you specific packing tips and instructions on how to expedite the packing of each room. Quality packing is essential for a successful move. With our packing guide, your packing will be as though it was done by experts – even if it you do it yourself.

Whether you choose to pack yourself, have professionals do it or pack part of your residence, learning the best way to pack each room is knowledge that's good to have. You never know when you may need to pack, and our packing guide is your resource for whenever that time comes. In addition, Allied provides you with a packing calculator to help you estimate the supplies you’ll need to pack up your home.

Allied's Guide to Packing for Every Room

We break our packing guide down room by room to best explain how all the typical components of that room should be packed. We divide a home by kitchen/laundry room, dining room, living/family/great room, office/den, bedroom/bathroom and garage/storage/hobby room. You can use our information for however few or many of these rooms you have.

Each room has different requirements in terms of packing. The kitchen may require dishpack and careful packing of china and glassware. The living room/family room may require the stretch wrapping of furniture and packing of fragile electronics and breakables. The bedrooms may require packing of larger, lighter items such as pillows, bedspreads and clothing. As each room has different packing needs, our packing guide takes these into consideration to develop the best plan of action.

Make Use of Allied's Guide to Packing

We developed this packing guide to help you pack up your belongings properly. Instead of haphazardly throwing things into boxes, take the time to look at the packing guide and get organized. The most successful moves are those that are organized, and organization starts with packing.


Everything was great and they had to hand deliver everything b/c the bought the wrong van. The crew for the delivery was good. I told them don't bring that big van b/c the driveway wasn't big enough. They must have a box van. They got stuck and had to go back. They had to hand deliver.

Allied Van Lines

The rating is based on the fact that I was very satisfied with every aspect of the move. They were very careful and clear about everything. They were very prompt and everything was on schedule.

Allied Van Lines

They did a good job all the way through. The people who contacted me kept in contact with me. It was a good experience, I would use them again.

Jeff/Kim C  of  Fairview, NC 5 Rating:


Allied Van Lines

The attentiveness of all those involved and the care that they took with most of our possessions. One guy dropped a night stand on the dolly and if we would have not seen it, we wouldn't have known. The guy that dropped the night stand made a small dent on it that he did not say anything about. Overall they did a great job, but this is one instance.

I rated a ten b/c we needed fitness equipment moved from my business to a home. That was the move. The folks at Carey Moving were exceptionally helpful. They were the sub-contracted movers.

Allied Van Lines

I moved a lot in my life. This was the best move. The crew was fantastic and never complained about anything. The coordinator didn't communicate the arrival of the truck for loading. I had to call. The driver was efficient and the crew protected my home with mats. They acted like they liked their job and never complained about going up stairs. Johnny and his helper were great. Allied is lucky.
