Packing for a Long Distance Move
There's a big difference between moving across town and moving across the country. Besides the extra time and expense, you also have to pack differently.

You're only looking at a few minutes of travel time, so drive slowly and you're home free! When you are moving across the country, the rules change a little bit. Every item needs a secure place in your trailer or ReloCube.

This might help too…U-Pack has a "do not ship" list at upack.com. Check it out. You're probably going to find similar items listed with any company you choose to move with.

Here's an overview:
