Keeping It All Together

How do I keep my stuff together?

Keep everything  together when you or the  removals company are packing boxes. Keep bookends with books, light bulbs with lamps, and extension cords with appliances. Small loose parts can be attached to the item they belong to with tape or placed in small envelopes to keep pictures hooks with pictures, shelf brackets with a bookcase, a special wrench and bolts with the wall unit. Keep larger corresponding items (such as cable TV cord) in Ziplock bags and tape these to the underside or back of the item.



Why do I need labelling?

Mark all your boxes well so that the content can be easily identified - colour coding also works well. Keep items that are related together. Clearly mark boxes that contain fragile items.


Tips for Packing

Extra Boxes
Ensure that you have at least 10 extra empty boxes handy on moving day. You can never be too prepared for contingencies.

Use Wardrobe Boxes
Wardrobe boxes are ideal for lightweight but bulky items, such as clothing, comforters and pillows. It will keep your hanging clothes crease free and quick to unpack. Measure the width of your clothes in your closets to find out how many boxes you will need.

Use Your Luggage
Save on precious packing space by packing shoes and foldable clothing in your luggage.

Vacuum Sealing
Use vacuum seal bags for lightweight, bulky items that don’t go in wardrobe boxes. It will save you a truckload of space!
