DIY – Before you begin packing
If you are looking to do some of your own packing, we advise you follow the steps below and give yourself ample time (weeks or months) prior to the big day.
1. Decrease the amount to be taken by getting rid of things you no longer need in a garage sale, by donating to charities or disposing of them appropriately.
2. Order proper, sturdy moving boxes and packing materials.
3. Identify items you can live without for a few weeks and begin packing them. (toys, ornamentals, books)
4.Book your movers weeks in advance.
HOW TO PACK BOXES
When making up boxes ensure to place extra tape at the bottom of the box.
When packing fragile or delicate items, place scrunched up paper at the bottom of the box as padding.
Place heavy items in small boxes and larger, light items in big boxes.
Pack heavier items at the bottom and lighter items at the top.
Scrunch wrapping paper and fill any empty spaces.
Label boxes stating contents, fragile, and orientation if needed.
Fragile items – Glass, crockery etc
Scrunch packing paper and place at the bottom of the box as cushioning.
Place wrapped crockery in boxes vertically and complete padding the remainder of the box with more scrunched paper.
Store packed boxes in the garage or room that is easily accessible for the removalists.
