When moving house, whether moving abroad, to the other side of the country, or simply down the road, packing can soon become a headache.
As experienced packers for all kinds of domestic removals, european removals and international removals, we have picked up a few tips along the way. If you are organised and think your packing through carefully it needn’t become a chore.
Here are a few helpful tips to get you started.
Make a list
Write a list of everything that needs to be packed. You can prioritise this so you pack the most important things first. This is ideal if you are embarking on a move abroad.
Moving house is the ideal time to have a clear out. Be ruthless and consider what you don’t use anymore and what you can do without. Remember if you are moving internationally then the less you take the easier it will be for you.
There are many great ways to get rid of your unwanted items. From holding a car-boot sale to posting your items on your local freecycle website. The key is to be as ruthless as you can.
No more than you can lift
When filling boxes remember not to over-fill and make them too heavy. You should make sure that you can still lift the boxes.
It is a wise idea to pack an essentials box. In this you should include tea, coffee, kettle, snacks as well as all the paperwork you need on arrival at your new home.
One of the best ways to ensure precision packing is to hire in the professionals. Here at Roy Trevor we offer a full packing service. Here we will take care of everything.
