Many customers inquire about the use of recycled boxes from local businesses. While this at times is an option, it is becoming increasingly sparse as most companies compact and recycle their cardboard. Your time is valuable! Why chase down old dirty boxes when you can enjoy the ease and convenience of having clean, quality supplies delivered to right to your doorstep? Call 651-210-8271 to arrange delivery.PREPARING FOR YOUR MOVE
Matt’s Moving recommends assembling a starter box for the belongings you will need immediately once you arrive at your new home. It’s easy to forget, but enormously helpful on move day! A starter box should be the first box unpacked and its contents should include essential items you’ll need right away, like a hammer, screwdrivers, toilet paper, medication, and anything else that you may need; like a remote for your TV.Packing Dishes and Records
The best way to pack dishes and records is vertically. Straight up and down, not flat or on top of one another. This ensures if any damage occurs, it is less likely to affect surrounding items.
Note: Never wrap lamp shades or china in newspapers. The ink can ruin or soil items. Also, Matt’s Moving suggest you keep lamp shades with you when you move unless they are boxed, as they are susceptible to damage in transit.
Pack Heavy Small and Light Large When packing, placing light items in large boxes and heavy items in smaller boxes works best.
Protect Your Valuables and Memories The key here is to make sure your most valuable possessions are always with you. Expensive jewelry, cameras, old coins and precious memories should remain with you and not your mover. Here is a short list of the ideal items to pack in an “Important Box”
Avoid Mixing and Matching Using one box to store items from more than one room in your home to fully fill space is tempting, but will be time-consuming when it comes time to unpack. Instead, organize boxes by room and use towels or packing paper to fill excess space.
Relax and Enjoy the Help Leave the stress and tough parts to our movers and moving specialists and be sure to get a goodnights rest before your big moving day.

Placing items from one room into a box then another room into a box to fill space is tempting but will be time-consuming when it comes to unpacking. Instead, use towels or moving paper to fill those voids as loosely packed boxes can lead to damage.
