Packing Hacks For Stress-Free Moving 2300 1535 G W Twilley & Son Removals

House removals are often listed as one of the most stressful events in life. With a bit of planning, you can make the process easier to manage: start with getting packing right, because proper packing techniques are the basis of a successful move.

Here are nine packing hacks for a stress-free home move.

1. Prioritise

When starting to plan your House Removals, make a list of your belongings (one list per room) and highlight which items you’ll need to have handy during your first days at the new house.

2. Calculate how many boxes you need

Making a list will also help you calculate how many boxes you need – you don’t want to run out or keep going out to get more. To make things easier, do an online search for “moving box calculator” or call us on 020 8888 5156 for advice.

3. Gather all your packaging materials

You’ll need more than just boxes, so get a wide range of supplies, including bubble wrap, packing paper or newspaper, tape, Stik ‘n Guard protector for carpets, cutters, labels, markers, etc., and keep all supplies in one place.

4. Invest in ready-made solutions

Like wardrobe boxes.

5. Create a labelling system

Labelling alone isn’t always enough. To save as much time as possible when unpacking, you’ll need to choose either a number-based or a colour-based labelling system. Read our blog post about how to label moving boxes like a pro.

6. Keep cables and cords taped to the appliances

This will save you from having to figure out which one goes where.

7. Be realistic

Take a step back and think about whether you can handle the packing yourself or you’d be better off getting outside help. Read more about our packing services and materials.

8. Choosing your moving date

Balance the moving date against your current and anticipated responsibilities – especially with children being off school from July onwards.
