How to Pack Without Hurting Your Back

Watch our quick video for a full overview of the working station, and read more moving tips!

Dedicated Work Station
We can’t emphasize this enough – it’s very important to be mindful of avoiding strain or injury while moving. Fortunately, with just a little time and effort, you can set yourself up for success with a temporary packing station.

What You’ll Need
Essentially, you are building a temporary table out of the sturdiest packing boxes you have on hand. Start by assembling a box, preferably a dish barrel, aka ‘dish pack’. The weight and height of this type of box is best (they have double walls, so they are thicker).

Placing the Top
Now take another dish pack. Rather than assemble it, take the unopened cardboard, and place it on top of the other dish pack, making it your “tabletop”. Simple, but effective.

Get Packing
Grab a stack of newsprint paper, and set it flat in the center. Voila! Now you’re ready to to start packing things at your new, ergonomic-friendly workstation.
