Are You Looking To Save On Your Move?

When it comes to preparing for your move, whether it’s a short or long-distance relocation, meticulous planning is essential for a successful transition. Here are some fundamental packing tips to keep in mind:

1. **Follow a Timetable:** It’s common for people to underestimate the time required for packing, so start early to avoid last-minute stress.

2. **Pack Room-by-Room:** Organise your packing efforts by tackling one room at a time. This approach helps maintain order and minimizes confusion.

3. **Establish Work Areas:** In each room, designate specific areas for packing. This helps streamline the process and keeps things organised.

4. **Sort by Weight:** As you complete packing in each room, sort your packed boxes into categories based on weight—light, medium, and heavy. This will assist your moving team on the day of the move.

5. **Limit Carton Weight:** To ensure manageable lifting and transportation, aim for a maximum carton weight of approximately 15 kilograms.

For the utmost protection of delicate items, it’s advisable to have Excel Removals pack items such as:

– Marble or glass tabletops
– Heavy wall ornaments
– Large mirrors
– Pool tables
– Pianos
– Bulky, fragile items like trophies, statues, and chandeliers

Your move team will assess the packing of your boxes to ensure the safe transportation of your belongings. If they find items improperly packed or boxes at risk of damage, they may request you to repack those items. For the best protection during local, interstate, or overseas moves, Excel Removals offers a wide range of industry-leading packing materials designed to safeguard your belongings against transit trauma.

For any items you choose to pack yourself, ensure they are ready for loading when the Excel Removals moving vehicle arrives. All packing should be completed before the moving day. To enhance protection during self-packing:

– Provide cushioning by loosely crumpling plain newspaper at the bottom of boxes, leaving room at the top for more crumpled paper.
– Wrap all fragile and breakable items in paper before placing them in boxes.
– Start with packing large and heavy items, followed by smaller items, and fill any empty spaces with paper.
– Use sturdy cartons that can be easily closed (avoid overfilling) and tape the top seams securely.
– Clearly label boxes with your name, the room in your new home where the box should go, and provide a brief description of the contents.
