Packing for a House Removal

Some of these may seem obvious but you would be surprised how many people forget them when they have so many other things related to the move on their mind.

Make Lists and Label your Boxes
Make up a list to help you to record what's in each box or container. Devise your own system but keep it simple and ensure that it will allow you to easily identify where everything is packed. For example you could use numbered labels and cross refer these to a list or notebook. In other words you could have a box numbered "1" and a reference to this in your notebook listing the contents of box number "1".

Don't Overfill!

Please ensure that you do not overfill your boxes and cartons, remember that they have to be lifted. Your furniture removal men are fully trained but they are not supermen. Also, boxes that are overfilled may break under the strain.

Don't Underfill!

This may seem stupid after the previous tip but partially filled boxes may collapse if heavy items are placed on top of them. Try to distribute your things evenly in the available boxes.

Beware of Newsprint!

When packing your valuable and fragile possessions please remember that newsprint will rub off. Use plain paper where this may be a problem. Your ornaments, glassware and other delicate items can first be wrapped in kitchen roll before using newspaper. The containers holding these items should be clearly marked as "fragile".

Ensure that you have Sufficient Packing Material

It is essential that you have plenty of paper, bubble wrap, cartons and containers. You will also need lots of string and adhesive tape.
