Packing Tips for your next move

At AB Removals, we have packed and unpacked contents for countless clients over many years. In doing so, we have undoubtedly gained a good sense of how to complete the packing process efficiently, carefully and punctually. In sharing this knowledge with our customers, we are able to provide them with the tools and know-how to pack items properly.

If you are looking for packing tips for moving house or office, we can help! Check out our packing tips below.

1. Preparation is key. Ensure you have all the packing materials you need prior to packing commencing. Check out our packing services page to view the materials required.

2. Make a list of everything you need to pack.

3. Label each box accordingly. Ensure you have clear labels on each box as this not only ensures that your boxes arrive at the right destination, but also helps when unpacking your contents.

4. Pack sensibly. It doesn’t take a genius to know that when packing valuables, you should ensure that the items have efficient padding/protection so they don’t break.

5. Ensure that items are packed in ‘room’ categories. For example, ‘Kitchen’, ‘Living room’.

6. Don’t lift heavy boxes unassisted. That’s what we are here for!

7. Have spare boxes ready for any last minute or forgotten items that you need packed. Also, it’s best not to overload boxes with too many items as this can cause them to break so the spare boxes should come in handy in case this occurs.

8. Moving home is the perfect opportunity to de-clutter. Take the opportunity to throw away or donate to charity anything you don’t need anymore.

9. Seal bottles or items that could potentially leak during the move.

10. Distribute the weight of the items evenly throughout the boxes.
