Top Packing Tips for Moving House

If you’re going to tackle the packing yourself, here are some of our top packing tips to help make the job a little easier

Start early

Give yourself as much time as possible, because it is almost guaranteed that you will come across a lot of things that you didn’t know you had. Take some time to have a clear-out, and pack everything you can in advance while leaving out only the necessities. Get an idea of how many packing boxes and crates you will need

Use sturdy boxes

Boxes made from corrugated cardboard are stronger than regular ones, but for heavy items try and use proper furniture cartons for maximum support. Seal your boxes with good quality packing tape so items won’t fall out the bottom in transit, and label them clearly.

Pack heavy items at the bottom

Put lighter items on top, and fill the empty spaces in the box with fabric like clothing or towels, or use butcher paper or bubble wrap. Avoid newspaper as it stains. Don’t pack boxes heavier than 15-20kg, or they will be more likely to break or tear. To prevent injury, remember to always lift with your knees and not with your back.

Wrap delicate items individually

These items like glassware and dishes can be wrapped in fabric like clothing or towels to save on bubble wrap. Pack them upside-down in the boxes, which makes them less likely to be crushed. Line all the boxes carrying breakables with fabric or crushed paper and make sure you fill all the empty spaces between items

Pack your essentials separately

These should be in an overnight bag or something else you can easily carry on your own. Keep all your important documents (passports, birth certificates, property deeds etc.) and irreplaceable items with you, and don’t pack them in a box
