How can I best pack my things to ensure their safety during a long move?

The best way to ensure the safety of your possessions during shipping is to have our experts at A-1 Freeman pack them for you. We see that all packing materials and cartons are new, all china, glassware, and crystal items are wrapped individually before packing, all rugs and carpets are rolled and wrapped, all large or valuable furniture pieces and appliances are padded for transport, and that other such measures are taken on your behalf. Depending on where you’re moving, we also offer shipping container options – for air shipments as well as large or small ocean shipments.

In short, we at A-1 Freeman offer professional packing solutions customized to your needs, whether you want us to do all, some, or none of your packing.

If you’ve decided to do all or most of the packing yourself, check out our Definitive Guide to Packing for Your Move. Follow the guidelines presented there, and your possessions will arrive at your new home safely and in fine condition.
