Moving house is a stressful time, but it can also be an exciting experience with the right preparation and planning. Royal Sydney Removals has put together some packing tips for moving house to help make your move as painless as possible.
- 1) Gather all of your belongings in one room – this will allow you to pack more efficiently by not forgetting anything.
- 2) Start packing early – this will give you plenty of time to think about what goes where.
- 3) Label each box so that they are easier to identify when unpacked the items.
- 4) Pack lighter items in the bottom of each box and heavier ones on top.
Use the Right Boxes for Your Move
Did you know you can get boxes specifically for moving house? If you’ve always just used cardboard boxes sourced from your local supermarket, you could be shortchanging yourself by using the right boxes for your move.
Pack Up Your House One Room at a Time
Overwhelmed by where to start? One of the best tips for moving house is to approach the job systematically, room by room. Spend two or three days packing up each of the rooms in your house, and before you know it, you’ll be ready to move out with all your belongings intact!
Don’t write valuables on the box.
We want to trust those that we are hiring to help us move house. However, you must not write ‘valuables’ on the box when packing up your belongings. Potential burglars could see this, and they will know what boxes to steal from to get their hands on all of those valuable items!
Do not use a vacuum cleaner for packing delicate items.
When moving home, many people opt for the convenience of using a vacuum cleaner as an alternative way of packing some fragile or light-weight objects such as bookshelves, mirrors and plants with pots included – however; this can prove disastrous if any dirt or dust gets sucked into delicate mechanisms or accumulates inside glassware etcetera because it won’t recognise it.
