Packing boxes in time for your house move, is something that most people do commonly, however there is a certain criteria that will help both yourself and the removal company, get a head start in your house move. Most people just seem to get boxes and shove everything down in them. That isn’t a wise not a smart move! Boxes need to be packed in a specific manner because it saves a lot of time as well as energy. So how can you pack boxes that will make it easier both the parties involved?
1) Boxes should be sturdy. There are so many boxes that sadly fall through when they are being transported from one place to another. Ensure that you get good quality cardboard boxes. The good thing is that you do not have to buy these boxes from an office supply shop. You can go to your local supermarket and obtain them. That is one of the cheapest ways to be able to carry out a removal. Ensure that you pick up things like fruit boxes, because they have small cut out handles that make lifting any type of stuff, easy.
2) Wrap all your fragile possessions in bubble wrap. There are so many people that overlook this, however what ends up happening isn’t good. You can end up having your possessions break in transit and have a falling out with the removal company, as well as have them damaged. If you are unable to bubble wrap everything, you can stick all the stuff in boxes and then surround them with bed sheets, cushions and pillows. This is a full proof way of having all your stuff secure!
3) When you are done packing everything, make sure that you secure the boxes correctly. There is nothing more annoying or worse than having things just falling everywhere, after being packed. The solution to this is masking or duct tape. This provides a secure facility for your possessions. This is often used in small removals, especially when you have small things such like a vase that can easily crack.
4) For your office removals, there are specific crates and boxes that you are able to purchase from an office supply store, that will make your packing easier. You may have more things if you are carrying out a removal for your office, so packing will mean that you should label appropriately.
5) Speaking of which, labelling your boxes is one of the key things in order to help you identify your belongings. It can be very challenging, especially when you are moving from one place to another and you find your stuff back to front. Bearing in mind that the moving company will only move your boxes into your new place, it can be a really challenge to figure out which one is which. Always attempt to write onto the boxes, not to mention use cords and tags to ensure that you have a secure label on it.
