Packing Tips

Packing yourselves? get organised and take a look at our best practise packing tips.

Get organised first
Before throwing your belongings into second-hand supermarket cartons borrowed from your local store, a master plan is needed...
 
Its a great time to make a fresh start and sell off, give away, throw away or give to your local charity shop those things that you have kept for years and not used.  Many of those items will be stored in the loft and the depths or the garage or shed - if you've not used them for years then perhaps its time to let go.  There is of course the added advantage that it may well reduce your removal charge.
 
 
Take a long hard look at your belongings and decide what you really want to take....
Buy good quality packing materials
Imove can supply packing materials on request - ask for our price list -free delivery is included.
You should use strong cartons and proper packing materials . Ask Imove for  our packing materials price list - if you are in a hurry packingboxes.co.uk supply good double wall boxes, with free delivery usually next day.
 
Don't forget you will need packing tape to seal your boxes, a good marker pen and news offcutts for cushioning and wrapping items in the boxes.

Start packing as early as is practicable, and pack you least used items first.  Don't use very large cartons and don't overload them.  If you can't lift them then your mover will have difficulty as well.
 
Packing hints and Tips.
China and Glass - Line the carton with shredded newspaper and wrap mindividual items in tissue paper.  Mark the box "Fragile" or "China and Glass".
 
Books - For weight reasons use the smaller boxes, often called book boxes.

Plates - Wrap individually in tissue paper and stand on their side in the carton.  Do not lay flat.
 
Bathroom - Don't pack any medications that maybe needed on removal day.

and finally.....
Leave yourself plenty of time to pack and  dispose of those unwanted items.

Try not to move on a Friday especially during the summer months unless you can book your removal early. It is a busy time for removal companies and solicitors.

Your removal man is highly skilled in packing & moving your prized possesions without damage to the items or your propery, he is not usually a skilled plumber or electrician so have your washing machines and light fittings dismantled and ready to move.

And lastly hope for a bright sunny removal day!
