The prep work going into a move can be more of a challenge than the move itself. Before loading the truck, all of your belongings should be well protected, wrapped and otherwise secure (see checklist). Packing for a move requires skill and forethought. Before taking on the task yourself, consider studying up on it, especially if you have fine china and other breakable pieces that are precious to you. Things get jostled in trucks on the move, and there is only so much a careful mover can do to ensure the protection of your goods. The rest of the responsibility falls on the skill of the packer.
