Where do I start.
- First off get a date on when you want to move. If you book your removalist or rental truck early. Say the first job of the day for the Removal Company. So you are not waiting around if they are held up on another job etc. The sooner you get it all moved the sooner you can unpack and have a good night sleep in your new home.
- Get your moving and packing supplies as soon as possible. That way you have plenty of time to go through your items and get rid of anything you don’t need. This will also help to take the stress out of moving. Also save you money on packing supplies and removal cost especially if you are paying by the hour rate.
- Contact us we can help you in choosing the right products for your move if you are not sure.
- Remember there is no minimum buy. Also if you buy too many boxes and have some left over. We offer a full credit providing they are not used. With no holes and tape on them. Or you can get more boxes and packing supplies when needed
Write a list of what you need to do.
This will take the stress out of the move if you are organized and have a list. That way you should not forget anything. You can always add to the list as you are going. Booking a removalist or finding a truck to move. From finding a new School for your kids. Local Vet for your pets. Visa and dr appointment if moving overseas. Disconnecton and reconnection of utilities. Cleaning. Redirection of mail.
How to choose the products I need to start packing
- Get good quality boxes and packing tape. If you want to protect yourself and your items. Don’t use boxes from the supermarket if you can help it. Not only have they had food or chemicals that could stain your items. They could also fall apart during the move. Not only injuring yourself but also anyone else helping you move. Or the items could get broken in the move as well.
- Good quality tape is just as important as the boxes. You tend to use less tape which saves you money. Also it will protect your boxes from falling apart while you are moving.
- First off decide if you want to pack in one hit or do a few boxes at a time. This will help take the stress out of moving. If you are moving close by you maybe able to do smaller trips and reuse the boxes.
- The sooner you start the packing process the better. This will give you time to sought though your items and get rid of any items you no longer need. Depending on the time you have to do your move in and how much stuff you have.
- Take a look at our suggested moving packs as a guide say for a one to two bedroom house as an example. If you buy one of the packages and find you need more boxes. We will delivery these for free. As we know how hard it is to judge what you need. If you find you need more Moving Boxes and Packing Items feel free to contact us and will be more then happy to help you.
- You are more than welcome to come and pick up your Packing Boxes or any other items you may need. By prior appointment only. Or if you have any items left over that you didn’t use or isn’t damaged we will give you a full refund.
Sell or give away any items you don’t need or use.
- This will save you time and money during the move of you. Time in packing the items. Your not paying for a box and packing items you don’t really need. The time and space on the Removal truck. Finding space in your new home
for a item you don’t like need or want.
Where and when do I start packing.
- Start as soon as possible That way you should have everything done the day before you move. The last thing you need is have the removalist show up and you are still packing. This will cost you money if you are paying them by the hr.
- If you have a spare room start there. That way you will have somewhere to store your boxes as you are packing. That way they will not be in your way.
- Start with items that you are not using before you move. Example if its summer you don’t need your winter clothing. So start packing them up. If you have suit case use them for your clothing.
- Spare linnen towels and sheets. Also any books you are not reading. Go through each room.
- Make sure you mark each box clearly where it needs to go in the new home.
How to pack a kitchen will this take a lot of time
- You can start with your excess plates, cups , glasses and cooking items. Just leave the items you think you may need.
- Use butchers paper in wrapping your items. Plates, cups, glasses. Onces wrapped stand these up right don’t lay them flat. As they are much stronger and less likely to break in the move. This also saves you washing once you have moved. If you use news paper the print tends to come off and go not only over your items but also over your hands. ( if you want to save and use newspaer) Keep it for filling the spaces in the boxes.
We recommend using Butchers Paper for wrapping. As the ink from the news paper will get all over your hand and items you are packing. Save your news paper for filling the gaps in your boxes.
How to pack fraigle items.
- Bubble wrap and twin wall boxes are great for protecting your fragile items. Place a few sheets of butchers paper at the bottom top and side of the boxes. Or even a towel at the bottom and top. Wrap your items in Bubble wrap or butchers paper and place gently in the box. Place the butches paper or towel at the top and seal. Mark fragile with big bright stickers and write top load only.
- For larger items like tables and cabnets. We recommend Pro-Wrap or removal blankets for added protecting your items from scratches and dints.
