Moving Your Bedroom / Nursery / Bathroom

Start packing your bedrooms for moving by tackling less-used guest rooms first. Children can help by setting aside the toys and books they want to take with them and packing the rest in boxes. Colorful stickers on the outside of moving boxes let children know their personal belongings are clearly marked, and allow them to identify their things when the moving van is unloaded.
Clothing hanging in closets can be left on hangers and placed in wardrobe cartons. You may want to consider purchasing several of these special moving cartons from your moving company. One will hold about two feet of compressed clothing on hangers; figure more cartons if wrinkles are a concern.

Hats may be left in hatboxes and placed in large cartons for moving; or stuff the crown of each hat with crumpled tissue paper, wrap tissue loosely around the outside and place in a carton lined with clean paper, with the heavier hats at the bottom. Don't pack anything else with hats. Label the moving carton "FRAGILE."
Valuables such as fine jewelry should be removed from drawers and never packed with your household goods. They will be most secure if they remain in your possession while moving. If you don't feel comfortable taking your fine jewelry or other valuables with you (like stamp or coin collections), consider hiring a third-party armored vehicle service.
Dispose of aerosol spray cans, such as hairspray or deodorant, or take them with you. Other bottles should be carefully taped shut and wrapped to prevent leakage while moving, then packed in small cartons. See our list of Items That Cannot Be Shipped.
Bedding, Linens, and Towels
Blankets, sheets, tablecloths, towels, pillowcases and other linens may be protected by a large plastic bag and packed in a moving carton that has been lined with clean paper.

Mattresses & Pillows
Mattresses should be placed in mattress moving cartons for added strength and cleanliness. Pillows may be placed in bureau drawers or packed in cartons. They also make good padding for other items.
Glass mirrors should be packed in special mirror cartons for moving. However, if they are especially heavy, crating is recommended. Ask your Relocation Consultant about crating services.
Draperies & Curtains
Wardrobe cartons are ideal for moving curtains and drapes. Fold them lengthwise, place over a padded hanger, pin securely, and hang in the wardrobe. Draperies and curtains also may be folded and packed in cartons lined with clean paper or plastic wrap.
Leave area rugs on the floor for the moving company to handle.
