Tips For Packing: Labeling Hints

Each and every carton must be labeled:

  • Use a broad, felt-tipped marker.
  • Clearly mark room and contents.
  • Indicate "FRAGILE" on delicates; "THIS END UP" where appropriate.
  • If available, include your bill of lading number on every box.
  • As you finish with each carton, list the contents on the side of the carton (for easy viewing while stacked) and in a special notebook. You might want to number and/or code the cartons as well.
  • Indicate your name and the room to which each carton should be delivered at destination. Tape a sign on the door of each room at destination corresponding to the carton labels so movers can get the cartons into the proper rooms quickly.
  • Put a special mark (the number 1, or the letter A) on cartons you want to unpack first at destination.
