Moving hints and suggestions

  • When packing use appropriate packing boxes i.e. tea chest, wine and book cartons
  • If you over pack a box you risk damaging its contents
  • Stuff socks, tea towels, pillow cases and other small fabric items in holes and crevices in boxes
  • Keep all screws, bolts and other loose items in bags, taped to underside of furniture
  • Pot plants – prune and do not water prior to packing
  • Ensure children and pets are safe and out of harm’s way
  • Remove all trip hazards from floor
  • Consume your supplies of frozen and perishable items
  • If box contains breakable items clearly mark fragile
  • If chest of draws/tall boys aren’t too heavy leave clothes inside and securely tape draws shut
  • Disconnect all electrical items
  • Where possible dismantle beds as this is time consuming and will save on the cost of the removal.
  • Please insure all boxes are closed properly so tops are flat and securely sealed
  • Bundle loose items such as bed slats, garden tools or shelving together with tape or string
  • Do a final walk through with the removal team
