Tips for Packing to Avoid Breakages and Damage

Tips for Packing to Avoid Breakages and Damage

When it’s time to start preparing to move to a new house, packing boxes isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. This is why it often gets left until the last week before the relocation. That might be because it feels like a never-ending chore that soon becomes tedious and overwhelming. And that’s when we consider cutting corners to get it all done as quickly as possible. However, it’s better to take your time and complete an inventory as you go, rather than rush into things.

Whatever you do, you should give yourself plenty of time by starting to do some things early, such as decluttering and starting an inventory. If you plough into things, the likely outcome will be breakages and damage, which is preventable if you do things thoroughly. Take the time to catalogue every item and put notes on each box as you pack; it will make things much easier when you unpack. Alternatively, you can always get the Safe Removals team to do the packing for you to make sure it’s done professionally.

Advice When Packing for a Relocation in London –

While there are many different ways to organise the packing of your possessions, there is one thing that will help you more than most. If you give yourself plenty of time to plan and sort through all your items, you can remove any clutter and reduce the number of boxes. This will make it easier to unpack, you’ll begin life in your new home without unused items, and you may even save money on your removal’s quote.

If you have expensive or fragile pieces, such as art or electronics, you’ll need to make sure you pack them with additional care. These items will require extra packaging and kept away from the rest of the furniture during your move. You should clearly mark any important notes on the box with a label, including a visible fragile sticker. All glass items should have several layers of bubble wrap and put into a box with lots of cushioning.

No matter how many boxes, items of furniture and appliances you’re moving with, you must make an inventory of your possessions. You can do this with pen and paper if you like, but we would suggest something more modern, such as a home inventory app. Inventories are lifesavers when you start unpacking. You can also use them for insurance purposes and to send to our team so that we can assign the correct removals package for you.
