Adelaide Removals Tips for Packing and Moving
At 5 Star Removals we know and understand that for most Adelaide home and business owners moving house or office is a big effort, not only does it cost your financially but the time it takes you can never recover. That is we try and remove the stress and strain from your removal pain. 5 Star Removals provide so much more than door to door removals.
We can supply Gather all required packing supplies and moving boxes of different sizes. You will need different sizes of strong moving boxes to pack items of different sizes. Good quality packing materials and strong moving boxes or cartons should only be used if you want to get your own boxes and do it yourself that is okay but consult a professional removal company like ours for recommendations. You will also need to consider acquiring the following materials;
Newspapers, blank newsprint paper or white butchers paper to avoid print stains
Heavy duty packaging tape
One of the biggest mistakes many make people make when moving is to misplacing all their paperwork and documents etc so you should consider creating a “moving file” with all your important paperwork that you will need throughout your move. Include in it your removal truck reservations, insurance, moving helper payment codes (if applicable and not paying cash on day), some cash for movers tips, contact information for important people (real estate agents or property owners), and any important documents you could need before you have the chance to unpack.
You should keep this file in a safe place with you or in your own space it is your moving file, keep it where you will not accidentally pack it in a box. It should also be in a place where it won’t get lost in the mess and chaos that will inevitably develop for most when relocating happens.
When of the biggest problems for many is finding some toiletries and fresh clothes of a full nature just after moving home at 5 Star Removals we suggest that you pack a suitcase or box for each member of the family several days in advance. Include a personal-sized bar of soap, new toothbrush and toothpaste, towel and washcloth, disposable razor if needed, some “relaxing” clothes (sweats or something similar) and two complete changes of clothes, and anything else you know each person will need during the first few days (while everything else is in boxes). This way everything they’ll need is easily attainable and access as the unpacking is underway.
Keep these boxes or suitcases in a safe place where they will not be mixed in with everything else, perhaps in the car or even farther away (work or a neighbor’s house). Bring them with you in the car depending how far you are traveling, if it is a long drive then we can add the extras to the back of your removal trucks load, so you can get them first.
Instead of buying metres of bubble wrap or handfuls and handfuls of packing peanuts, turn to your clothes to provide that padding. Gather some old clothes you can use for padding. It saves you money and you still have to pack the clothes anyway, two birds with one stone. Clothes are often more useable than paper and bubble wrap, anyway.
As for things like glassware, wrap each one in a sock or glass wrap. It’s almost like that’s what the socks were truly meant for the removal industry. If they clink against each other, they’ll be fine.
Packing Effectively and Efficiently makes moving more stress-less, Clear a larger room, making a fully accessible and dispatch packing and stacking station at your current home. You’ll want a nice, wide open space where you can drag and drop all your stuff and then expedite the packing process. This is where you’ll have your boxes, your packing materials, and your pens, tape, and labels. This is your I’m-getting-ready and stuff-done room.
As you pack each box and seal it up, put a number on it, in addition to the room label and contents. This way, if you have X number of boxes, you’ll know when or is one is missing, in addition to being able to tell the movers or one of the 5 Star Removals management.
