If you have moved house or offices at least once in your life you will understand the stress of it all- from cleaning and show-houses to packing, moving and unpacking, there are myriad of things that can go wrong during it all. With SA Removals our goal is to make your home or office move as stress-free as possible and our packaging services are just a small part of the service we offer. As experts in home removal, we believe a lot of the strain of your move can be eliminated through how you prepare and pack up your home…
Here are some top tips on preparing and packing up your household:
As a company with years of experience in packaging services, we know that preparation is the key to a successful and stress-free move. By being prepared we recommend calculating how many boxes you will need for you move, and securing those well in advance. Make sure to get boxes of varying sizes and additional packing materials such a bubble wrap, strong tape, self-seal bags and save old newspapers for lining boxes!
With our many years of experience, we know that you just won’t be able to get everything unpacked on the first night. This is where thinking and packing ahead is recommended! Pack an ‘essentials’ box for your first night, including key items such as a kettle, plates, cups, utensils, some basic cleaning products, snacks, tea, coffee and sugar. Additionally, pack an over-night bag for each member of the family with a change of clothes, toiletries and a first-aid kit with pain killers etc.
By this we mean starting your packing way earlier than you had originally planned! It’s a universal truth that packing always takes longer than anticipated, especially when hiccups arise such as having to dismantle furniture to get it down stairs, for example! We also recommend beginning at the top of your house (if it’s a double storey), then move downwards.
These three simple tips should set you up for a stress-free and relatively smooth home move. If you are looking for a company that offers professional and convenient household packing service, or to assist with heavy lifting and transportation, look no further than SA Removals!
