11 Packing Tips for Moving
A selection of our best moving tips
Pack an overnight bag
Pack an overnight bag containing all the essentials. At the end of the day, maybe you will be too tired to unpack your things. Prepare your essentials within easy access like clothes if you are working next day, toiletries, phone chargers, etc.
Label the sides of the boxes and write on the labels – What’s in your boxes and what room they’ll be going into. Avoid mixing items from different rooms in the same box, unpacking by room is more easy process. Label cords and cables so you know where they go and pack them in the same box.
Using bin bags
Use bin bags only for rubbish. This will keep you from throwing something important away.
Right size boxes! Put heavy items in small boxes; light items, like linens and pillows, in bigger ones. The original packing box and material is the best choice for transport your TV, computer, printer and etc. because the Styrofoam is customized to fit each item.
Packing Supply Checklist
Having the supplies you need on hand will make packing go more smoothly. Royal Removals provide all the materials such as boxes for dishes or hanging bars for clothing.
Use sheets or blankets to protect your pictures, paintings or other delicate objects.
Mark Fragile items
Be sure to mark the boxes containing fragile items. The mover will be more careful with these boxes.
Valuable items such as wills, jewellery & cash in separate boxes and transporting them by yourself.
Heavy or light items
Don’t over – or under-pack. Boxes will be crushed or forced open if not packed correctly.
