Moving house can be stressful enough with having to pack your items  in a safe and secure box, bubble wrap your breakables, and ensure you  label each box with what it contains and the room that it is to be  placed in. Many people, especially if you have a big house, or many  items to move, can spend weeks if not months having to get things  prepared before moving.

The best way to move house is to do the  following:  Before you even think about getting a box and packing it  with items, you need to get a pen and paper and make a list. Make a list  of all the rooms of your new property, for example kitchen, bathroom,  bedroom 1, bedroom 2, garage etc. Then you can label every box that you  pack as you go along with the room that it is to go in, and also write a  number on the box, and also on your list, and what the box contains.  Now this is going to seem like a lot of prep work, however it is going  to be worth it when you come to actually moving, loading, and unloading  all of your boxes, especially if you have a big house, or many, many  boxes full of items.   The idea of having a list of all your boxes,  having them numbered, and list what each box contains is to make it a  lot easier for you and your removals company so that when you arrive, and you are unloading the truck you and  the removals company know exactly what room to put each and every box,  and what it contains. The idea of this list is so that you know what  boxes are here, and what boxes are missing, or have been placed in  another room.

As we don’t offer a packing service as a idea here are a few tips to help put some order into your packing system.

1. Try to pack one room at a time, and begin with items that are not used used often.

2. Create a list of everything you are packing, especially if it has monetary value or sentimental value. This can be books, cds, expensive clothes. Take note of which box you are packing what in and use labels (see below)

3. Use sturdy boxes. Fill the box to the top. There is no need to economize on boxes as this can cause damage from over packing. Simply fill the box to the top and seal the lid well. Using this logic you will be able to stack the boxes easily.

4. Ensure the bottom of the box is taped securely so it doesn’t give way or collaps on removal.

5. Never fill a box until it is so heavy that you can’t lift it safely. Spread the heavy items over a few boxes. Balance boxes with lighter items like towels or soft toys. Pack the lighter items on top.

6. Use bubble wrap or paper when packing fragile or delicate items. However, when using newspapers newsprint can smudge so use newspaper selectively. There is professional packing paper which can be used as well. Clean paper can be purchased cheaply online. Boxes should be marked “Fragile” and “This side up” to prevent anything which needs to stay level from being badly handled.

7. Each box should be labelled clearly, either by room or type. Write on different sides of the box as well.

8. Create an “essentials box” for the day you move. Include items like toiletries, toothbrushes, toilet paper, perhaps a bottle of water, snacks and even a change of clothes in case you cannot unpack everything in time.
