Just because it fits in the box, doesn’t mean it goes in the box.

Yes, just because an item fits in a box does not mean that you should pack it there. Why? Because you don’t want to pack really heavy books next to items that could be fragile and break.  So, be aware of breakable items and ask your mover for advice we would be happy to help. This way, your items are properly protected and nothing breaks.
