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.

The care of packing. The packers did not mark the boxes clearly. Some of the boxes had been move before and he just taped them and didn't do what he was supposed to do.

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.

Allied Van Lines

Overall, I was very satisfied. They had to shuttle everything to the truck from my home because they could not get the truck in my driveway. The driver had the wrong phone number but it worked out OK.
