Packaging Tips

• Valuables – it’s best to take precious items yourself – things like jewellery, financial or legal papers, photos, coins, etc
 Labelling – Label all boxes with the room the items belongs in. Highlight boxes that contain fragile items. Write your name and mobile phone number on each box
• Weed out the old – why not take the opportunity, before packing, to sort out any possessions that you want to dispose of.
• Organise – Mark boxes containing essential itesm ‘OPEN FIRST’. Pack books and heavier items in smaller boxes (Carton ‘B’) to avoid injury when lifting.

General Rules

• Pack one room at a time. If you run out of items to pack in a particular room, fill in the box with paper or bubblewrap to secure items in the box. This will prevent the box from collapsing if something is places on top of it.
• It is easier to pack on a table top
• Always use specialist wrapping paper or bubblewrap for fragile items. Newspaper may stain your valuables.
• Tape the bottom of each box prior to filling the pad the bottom with linen, paper or bubble wrap.
• Remember –everything you pack will need unpacking so the more organises you are at packing, the easier the unpacking will be!
• When packing any type of machinery, video, DVD player, etc, avoid shredded paper as it may get inside workings
• Label small itesm wrapped in aplian paper to avoid them being thrown away with the wrapping paper
• Wrap fine china, crystal or glassware individually
• Stand plated on edge, not flat
• Lay books flat in the box as this will reduce stress on the binding
• Hanging clothese can be hung in special wardrobe boxes – this will save creasing
• Turn outside furniture upside down to drain all water
• If available, pack small appliance, computers, etc, in their original boxes
• Strengthen the glass of morrior by placing ‘X’’s across with masking tape, then wrap them in bubblewrap and pack in a flattening box.
