Relocation requires a lot of resourcefulness, time and strength. Lucky for you, at Paul’s Removals Melbourne have all of that! The years of experience have made us resourceful and knowledgeable. Not only we know what goes where, but we know the best packing practices, time-saving techniques and the most clever solutions for the most unexpected of situations. Here we will share with you the most important things you need to remember when organizing your relocation.
1. Buy quality packing materials:
- Bubble Wrap;
- Colour identification dots and labels;
- Marker pens;
- Packing tape;
- Heavy duty garbage bags;
- Sturdy boxes;
- Stickers and labels pointing the fragile items and boxes;
2.Pack in sturdy boxes and cross tape the bottom of the box with packing tape.
3.Put heavier items at the bottom of the box.
4.Use tissue paper to fill the spaces in the box so your items are not loose.
5.Pack big, but light items in the heavy duty garbage bags.
6.Don’t fill your suitcases to the brim. This will make them overweight, will slow down the process and might cause damage to the suitcase itself.
7.Make sure you empty all wardrobes and drawers prior to the arrival of Paul’s Removals.
8.Reduce the distance to the truck. Clear the area and allow for the truck to park as close to your house as possible. Put packed items as close to the place where the truck will park as possible. This will save time and money.
9.Dismantle all pieces of furniture prior to the arrival of your removals team. If you can’t – we will help you, but make sure you have labelled plastic bags for all your screws and bolts. Attach to the item with the packing tape.
10.Drain water beds, or let us know you have one, so we come prepared to help.
11.Do not water pot plants on the day of the move or the day prior to the move. They will become heavier and may drip in the truck.
