Most folks in the United States move once every 8-11 years. That means when you have a big move coming up, you’ve probably forgotten all the packing hacks you found to make boxing up your items easier. No worries, Bekins has you covered.

As a national supporter of Legacy List with Matt Paxton, Bekins was able to bring the host to our headquarters in Indianapolis, Ind., to share top packing tips and tricks. In the six videos below, you’ll see Matt and our Bekins moving expert discussing general tips, what cartons and materials make for the best moves, and the best ways to pack specialty items such as mirrors and artwork, lamps and lampshades, stemware and dishes.
