Moving house and all the work involved in packing can be stressful and time consuming. We can help. With our 5 top tips, you can save time and reduce the stress involved in moving house.
Being well organised is the key to our efficiency. At Wemooveit, we take time to consider our preparations. We are well organised for every house removals project. You can be well organised too.
Tip 1 : Look after the little things.
Use small bags and containers to save all the small bolts, screws and other parts from dismantled furniture. If you can store this container in or attached to the furniture it came from.
Tip 2: Secure your cabinet doors and drawers
Use cellophane wrap (cling film). Wrap it around your furniture a few times. This will keep the doors from flying opening and drawers and interior shelves from falling out. If you wrap the entire piece of furniture, it will be better protected against scuffs and scrapes.
Packing Hack #1 Colour-coding or Post-it note descriptions:
It sounds pretty simple, but colour coding and post-it notes can go a long way in terms of organisation.
Grab some different coloured stickers or even different coloured permanent markers, and then colour-code your cartons by room.
For example, blue for all of your kitchen cartons and red for the bathrooms.
Don’t forget to make yourself a colour-coded sheet for reference.
It will make it easier to pack and to unpack.
If you only have plain coloured post-it notes handy, you can still easily reference what is inside the box by labelling them with rooms of the house.
Tip 3: reinforce your packing boxes
Your items may be heavier than you think and standard packing boxes often inadequate. Using packing tape, reinforce your packing boxes. Remember to fill any gaps in packing boxes with scrunched up paper, this will prevent your items from being damaged as they move around.
Tip 4: take photos before disconnecting electronics
Reconnecting the cables to your tv, tv boxes and audio systems, etc is rarely straight forward. Take photos and use colour coding to enable you to quickly reconnect these items in their new locations
