We’re not just Nashville’s moving experts… We’re also trained extensively on how to properly pack items that can be easily broken or damaged! Let us share some of the knowledge we’ve picked up over our 20 years in business to help you pack up your Christmas decorations this year:
Our dish pack boxes are double-insulated on the outer wall, making them thicker than a regular cardboard box. They also come with adjustable inserts that can be moved around to perfectly fit each of your ornaments. Buying one of these boxes from us can save you the hassle of having to individually wrap each of your fragile Christmas ornaments!
Label every box in detail.
You don’t want to have to search through every box for a particular wreath or ribbon next year. Be sure to stick a label on at least two sides of each box to remind yourself what items are inside. You can make easy labels by writing on our packing tape with a Sharpie. These DIY labels are easily readable on top of our white-colored boxes.
One of the most frustrating parts of decorating each winter is having to untangle strings of lights and garland without damaging them. Avoid this problem next year by properly storing those items this year. You can repurpose your discarded gift wrapping supplies by carefully wrapping each string of lights and garland around a different empty gift wrap tube or piece of cardboard from a gift box. Then create more separation by placing a sheet of our packing paper between each wrapped string as you stack them into a box.
Keep your linens fresh.
Many people keep special tablecloths and other linens just for the holiday season. Be sure you take the time to fold them properly, and place a laundry room dryer sheet between each linen when you stack them into your box. The dryer sheet will keep the linens smelling fresh and discourage moths from damaging them. You should also store your linens in a waterproof box, instead of a traditional cardboard box, to keep moisture from getting in.
You don’t have to buy an expensive gift wrap station from a craft store. Our dish boxes are the perfect length for storing tubes of your holiday gift wrap, and you can arrange the inserts to the ideal size for all of your rolls! You can also adjust the inserts to fit clothing boxes, gift bags, and bows.
