PACKING TIPS FOR A SMOOTH REMOVAL
Our expert team have put together our top packing tips for a stress-free move.
Pack all boxes to their tops and fill spaces with void-filling material such as towels and bedding paper. Larger spaces could be filled with pillows or cushions. This will prevent the movement of contents and give the packing box rigidity when stacked. Underfilled boxes can be crushed when stacking. Bulging boxes can tear and fall apart, or be dropped. Rattling boxes mean insufficient space filling.
Don’t overload your packing boxes with too many heavy items. You can always fill spaces with lighter objects. For example, you can alternate china and glasses with cushions and bedding items, or you could wrap heavy electrical items such as DVD players and stereos with quilts or towels before placing them into packing boxes. Packed boxes should not on average weigh more than 30lbs/15kgs each. Generally, heavier objects should be placed at the bottom of the box.
Label each box as you go with the room name or list of contents. If the contents are delicate or need to remain upright, clearly mark fragile and right side up. Write the contents on the sides and top of the box. This will enable you to identify the contents of the box however they are stacked. Pack your least used possessions first. Do one room at a time. Last in, first out – pack the most used items to the top of your boxes.
