How to pack for house relocation
Pack early: This is our first tip for you – don’t leave everything until last minute. It will take a while to pack everything depending on how much contents you have in your home.
Start with rooms you least need: Makes sense to pack the items that you don’t need on a daily basis as you will not need to keep emptying boxes to find a certain item.
Pack one room at a time: This will not only help you stay organised but also, make sure that nothing gets neglected.
Label your boxes: Write the contents of each box with a marker on the top of the box. Also label delicate boxes as ‘fragile’ as when loading them into the removals van, nothing gets broken.
Put heavier boxes on the bottom: By putting your heavier boxes underneath the lighter boxes, you ensure no breakable items will get crushed during your house move.
