While choosing a new house is always an exciting matter when it comes to relocating the physical effort definitely starts with packing. Packing is something that we can’t avoid when moving, but that doesn’t mean we can’t speed it up or make it easier. Packing faster will allow you to move to your new location ahead of time. And packing better will ensure all your items will be as safe as possible on the journey. So today let’s take a look at how to pack boxes when moving house. And let’s learn some tips and tricks so your moving process goes as smoothly as possible.
The organization is the operative word when it comes to packing. And it starts before you even open your first box. Grab a checklist, you’ll need one and you’ll come to love it. A checklist allows you to know what you are moving and ensuring nothing is left out. Additionally, it’s also useful once you are done moving, to ensure everything did in fact arrive to it’s location. Now that you are clear on how much you are actually packing then we can start with the actual boxes.
Getting the right boxes is important. You don’t need brand new and extra thick boxes to move per se. But if you use boxes that are beat up or have tears you have the risk of the box breaking and your items spilling or even breaking. You might still have the boxes of some of your appliances, and those can be a huge help. But if you are short on them and you are in the Geelong area we can provide you with some too, nobody has more boxes than a removalist believe us.
Once you have your boxes ready you need to start thinking on how to store items safely. Stuff like shampoo and other liquids might not break, but they can spill on top of other items, so make sure to wrap those to protect other items from them. Wrap anything fragile with bubble wrap, you don’t need to use a lot as a single layer can drastically increase it’s safety. And once your box is fully loaded don’t hold back when it comes to tape. Tape is strong, but boxes can be heavy and if they can open on both sides an extra tape run might be a good call.
Other simple tips are packing items from a same room together for an easier time unpacking, and to take pictures of fully packed boxes so you remember where everything is. And of course, the best tip we can offer you is to call us once you are done packing or even if you are having issues with it.
