Removalists Packing tips

Here are some removalist packaging tips that will help ensure that your belongings have a safe journey…

  • Boxes containing fragile items should packed into a boxes lined with crushed paper to depth of 5 centimeters to create a layer of cushioning. Repeat this at the top of each carton.
  • All empty spaces should be filled with crushed paper to avoid unnecessary movement.
  • Always place heavy items on the bottom with the lightest items at the top.
  • Plates should be wrapped individually, then wrapped in bundles of six.
  • 5When placing bundles into cartons try keeping all of the items vertical, because the long side of the carton is it’s strongest side.
  • Pack similar items together, avoid packing/contact between glassware and china etc.
  • Antiques and valuables should ideally be bubble wrapped.
  • Pack books into cardboard cartons, sorting books first by size will help reduce space and packing time.
  • Disassemble all beds, swings, trampolines and other such items.
  • Defrost your fridge and any freezers and have them dry and ready for collection.
  • Have all electrical appliances Unplugged with their leads secured.
  • Place small items in a centralised location, such as the carport or living area.
  • Bundling garden tools, mops and brooms help to minimize the time and cost by lowering the number of journeys the men will need to make the move.
  • If there are items that are not going to be moved, these should be separated to leave a clear path and to avoid any possible confusion on removal day.
  • The boxes of packaged items should be clearly marked with a room name and contents type.
