Room by Room Packing Guide

packing guide

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.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY...

The driver who initially loaded and delivered I was totally satis with. The goods had to be shipped into two loads. The driver was awesome and the job that he did was amazing. I had some minor damages, a box of dishes was smashed.

Allied Van Lines

B/c the person I had the most contact with she notified me of things. She was dealing with too many things at once. There should be more people helping her.

I had alternative quotes that were cheaper, but I had to do this from a distance and I had to rely largely on the initial phone contact I had. I was very impressed with the staff. The delivery dates changed: it happened a little faster than envisioned. We were notified properly of the change in time/date.

It was the smoothest move I've ever had. The driver was very competent and friendly. He took good care of our items. They were timely and it was a great moving experience for me.

The delivery was 2 days late but mostly only plastic bins are broken. The stickers didn't stay on some boxes so that makes it hard to know if I have everything. No one called about a del time. My delivery was 2 days late b/c I was told it was in the warehouse and no one wanted to move it. My move in 2007 was great though.

It was the moving coordinator who was very good in getting in touch, and the driver of the 18 wheeler who's name is Sammy, he was fantastic. The driver that loaded my things was a local guy. the loading crew was not very careful with my stuff.

The estimator was professional & very thorough in his explanation of the services. I likes that they gave me a ceiling price for weight of my goods. The final bill was less than that ceiling price.

They did everything they said they would do. The crew was fast, pleasant to work with. The driver was great and they were all great people to work with. We had two destination deliveries. We had a condo and an office/storage space. The smaller portion of the load went to the condo first. The main issue is that it was not all going to the same place.

The delivery was on time, and the way they handled the furniture was impressive. So far, everything looks fine.

The ease of just a few phone calls and everything was taken care of. It turned out to be a very cost-effective solution. One of our boxes did not arrive. I don't want my rating of 2 to reflect poorly on the driver. A box was not accessible in the overall load, but we're expecting it to be shipped to us soon.
