Packing Tips

Even if you call on Ready Movers for our professional home packing service, you will no doubt do some of the packing yourself in the weeks leading up to your moving date because early preparation is key for a stress-free move.

Check out our list of handy packing tips below:
Begin collecting the materials you’ll need for packing. Ready Movers can supply you with these. Here’s a short list of the necessities:
– Moving boxes in different sizes. Choose boxes made with corrugated cardboard as they are stronger.
– Quality packing tape. Always cross-tape the bottom of each box for added strength.
– Sharp scissors for cutting tape, string and paper.
– Bubble wrap and paper for wrapping glassware and fragile items.
– Packing paper for lining your moving boxes.
– A Master Moving List for listing box contents.
– Ziplock bags. These are handy for screws, nuts, bolts, keys etc. The bag can be taped to the disassembled furniture they came from.
Start packing early and avoid leaving anything to the last minute.
Create lists of the items you need to pack and move. Separate everything into categories such as giveaways, disposal, items to be sold, items to be moved and boxes for storage (talk to Ready Movers about storage options).
Start by packing items you won’t need to use between now and moving day. Always pack heavier items on the bottom and never overload a box so it’s too heavy to carry. Pack books in small boxes.
Label every box with your surname and a number. Make a note of the items each box contains, your name, and where you’re moving to.
Put items you’re not moving or moving on your own in one area, making it clear for the removalist not to be moved.
Pack one room at a time. List the contents of each box and attach it to the box when fully packed.
Use a Master Moving List to list the contents of your boxes.
To know which box, make sure you label the boxes by room so they go to the correct room on delivery.
Have a moving day essentials box prepared (otherwise known as a priority carton) to contain the following:
– Tea, coffee, plates, kettle, snacks and cups.
– First-aid kit (with pain relievers), resealable plastic bags, a torch, pen and paper and a small tool kit.
– Pack an overnight bag for everyone in the household, including clothing, toilet paper and toiletries.
