A lot of people hate packing. The first obvious reason is it is too difficult. Probably, you have a couple of hundreds pieces of clothes and accessories. Imagine the pain of going thru each one and folding and wrapping every item carefully to avoid damage during a move.
Not to mention that is just a small part of the bedroom. What more for bigger items like ovens and microwaves? There are just no words to describe how tiring it can get. But don’t worry, you do not have to suffer agonizing stress of packing and moving yourself. Arm yourself with knowledge thru these easy packing tips majority of Bill Removalists Sydney’s trusted removalists Western Suburbs suggest:
Make use of plastic bags
Does your cargo contain liquids like shampoo? If it is, then it would be best for you to put it in a plastic bag. That way, in case it spills while it is being shipped, then it would not affect the other items that are inside the same box as it is. Plastic bags would also be useful in protecting items that can be damaged by rain like clothing and books.
Buy some bubble wrap and foam pillow
In order for you to ensure that your items would be damaged or deformed, you can buy some bubble wrap and foam pillow in order to fill in the gap in the box. It would also prevent the items that are inside it from moving while they are being shipped.
Choose a durable tape
Your choice of tape also makes a big difference and as you are shipping your items to a different location, it is just right for you to choose a durable one in order to ensure that your cargo would not be opened easily. It would also be best for you to use the tape in an ‘H’ pattern. Also, use the tape several times but not too much.
Prevent over packing
No one can blame you if you want to place as much item as you want inside the box to reduce the shipping cost. However, it can also damage your items, especially if a heavier cargo is placed on top of it. So, avoid it at all cost and once you see that the sides of your box is bulging, then that is the sign that you need to remove some of the items in it.
Place desiccants in the box
In case the item that needs to be shipped is sensitive to changes in humidity and you need to ship it to a location with a humid climate, then don’t forget to place desiccants in the box to ensure that your items would not be affected by humidity.
Double check the items
It would be best for you to create a list of the products that are supposed to be included in box. That way, you would not forget to place everything. This is also a great way of ensuring that no other item would be placed in it that only consumes space in the box.
In addition to all the things mentioned above, don’t forget to add the label and the address of the receiver of the shipment in the box. By keeping in mind all these things, rest assured that nothing would go wrong with your cargo, especially if you have chosen anexpert removalists in Randwick by Bill Removalists Sydneyas your moving company partner.
