Removal Hints & Tips This page provides removal advice and assistance through
handy hints and tips about moving house. Page (2)
Consider a Colour Code System
You may want to consider using coloured labels or otherwise
marking your containers with a different colour for
each room in the house. This will allow the removal
men to place the containers in the appropriate room.
Take Care with your Soft Furnishings
Ensure that you don't place heavy items with sharp
corners on top of sofas and other upholstery.
These can be damaged quite easily if you do this.
Start packing two or three weeks in advance. Keep only
essential items aside until the last day or two.
Boxes are preferred to bags for small items. Bags are
easily torn and difficult to stack.
Suitcases and Luggage
Where possible use your suitcases and other luggage to
pack some of your things.
Food should be removed from cupboards and packed before
the move. Ensure that all caps and screw fittings on jars
and bottles are secured.
Don't Pack Important Documents
Remember to keep important documents aside. This will
obviously include any documents related to the house sale
and your removal.
Paint and other Liquids
Ensure that any paint or other liquids is contained in
leakproof containers. Pack in plastic bags before placing
in boxes to minimise the effect of any spillages..
