PACKING TIPS AND ADVICE
The extent to which you are involved in packing your home is of course entirely up to you. You may wish to have our team do some of the packing or you may want to leave it all to the experts. If you're looking to keep costs down then you'll probably want to take care of all the packing yourself. Whichever option you choose to go with, here are some packing tips and advice that should help make things easier.
Bubble wrap is commonly used as padding when packing up breakables, but there are actually many cheaper and greener methods that are every bit as effective. All those towels, bed sheets and dish cloths that are to be transported anyway are a much more environmentally-friendly means of protection. Fill your boxes to move with those instead to cut down on waste and save yourself some money.
If you have any paper plates in your cupboards they can be placed between your breakable ones to keep them safe whilst in transit.
Movers boxes can be expensive. Instead, go to your local cornershop or supermarket and see if they can provide any. Boxes from liquor stores have partitions that can protect valuables like crystal glasses, bottles or any liquids that need to be moved upright.
Use a marker pen to label each box so that the movers know which room to put each one into. The last thing you need after the stress of a home move is a mountain of unidentifiable boxes to sift through. Many removal boxes have a list of rooms that you can put a little tick beside.
Trying to peel tape away from boxes can be a frustrating task and devastating on your fingernails. To solve this problem, place a little bit of string underneath the tape so you can peel it away with ease.
Save money on boxes by using suitcases and rucksacks to pack your possessions in. Why transport them empty when they were custom built for the very task you're about to undertake.
Many of the materials necessary for packing your home can be sourced at no cost, but sometimes this can be impractical or, for whatever reason, not possible. When you order moving boxes through us we'll always make sure they are recyclable. Check out the Green Move list of packaging materials below. All orders come with a marker pen so the room to which each box is intended can be clearly marked. Take as much moving home advice as you can in order to make your home removal as smooth as possible.
