Packing tips before moving day
We do know that the moving process is a complicated and stressful event when it comes to organising. However, we are here to help you out with some tips.
Required items: Marker Pen
When you move, you have to plan and take in consideration how you will distribute the contents from the old to the new place. This step is quite important as it will make it more simple and quick for the removals men.
Try labelling each box with the room of destination label - for example, Bedroom 1 or B1
Is your room full of contents and you can’t figure it out how to decluster it to make some working space to dismantle your furniture?
First, pack up all the small contents into the boxes and then nicely group them in one of the room’s corner. Then you will have space to dismantle your furniture item nicely.
Usually, the items required for dismantling are Frame Beds (all kind of them), Baby cots, Double and Triple wardrobes, Futon’s, Large Sofa beds (take the metal frame out), Large Desks.
Required items: Mattress Plastic Covers
How should I pack my mattress? A common question that we receive from our customers.
Identify the size of the mattress and then buy an adequate mattress plastic cover.
Mattress Covers Universal Size’s: Super King Size, Double Mattress and Single Mattress Covers
Try to empty the loft contents before the moving day, as most of the removals companies are not allowed and insured to go up into the loft.
It may also be an excellent opportunity to chuck away some of the unwanted belongings that you are not using it anymore.
