Packing tips for moving

  • Pack by room
  • Pack heavier items on the bottom of boxes & lighter items on top
  • Fill empty spaces & gaps with bubble wrap or packing paper
  • Avoid mixing items from different rooms in the same box
  • Label each box with the room it’s destined for & a description of its contents
  • Rate each box – give each box a star based on priority it needs to be unpacked. So 3 stars = high, 1 star = low
  • Make use of baskets, laundry hampers & suitcases for clothes, pillows & linen
  • Place your necklaces through a straw to prevent tangling – unlatch your necklace and pull the chain through the straw, then fasten with the clasp
  • Pack plates vertically to reduce the chance of breakages
  • Place good quality paper plates (sugar cane or bamboo) between China and ceramic plates (keep the paper plates for your next bbq or picnic)
  • Remove lightbulbs from lamps and wrap
  • Use a fitted sheet or mattress covers for your mattresses
  • Use kitchen pots to fill with small unbreakable kitchen items
  • Secure sharp knives with a rubber band and wrap in a tea towel or wrapping paper
  • Pack a moving day box ~ pack essentials you’ll need for day one. Include clothing, toiletries, medications, pet food, snacks, towels, sheets, toilet paper and handwash
