PACKAGING TIPS

  • Start by identifying how many boxes you need and put together a packing kit – this could include boxes of different sizes, bubble wrap, tape, marker pens etc.
     

  • Pack heavier items in smaller boxes to ensure easier lifting.
     

  • Stack dining chairs seat to seat with a cloth or brown paper to separate them.
     

  • Wrap pictures and mirrors in bubble wrap so you can store them standing up.
     

  • Protect table and desk surfaces with brown paper and wrap legs with bubble wrap or corrugated cardboard before you put them into storage.
     

  • Cover items such as armchairs, sofas and equipment with a cloth sheet. (eg Bed Sheet)
     

  • Bubble wrap all breakables - available to order through Box Clever.
     

  • Make sure that cardboard boxes are filled to capacity – half empty or bulging boxes may tip or collapse.
     

  • Important documents are best packed in archive boxes and labelled clearly on the side.
    Once you arrive at your new space, stack the boxes so you can read the labels.
     

  • Put your heaviest and bulkiest items in your units first to provide a good base for packing. It may seem obvious, but you should always stack lighter boxes on top of heavier boxes.
     

  • Mark heavier boxes with an ‘H’ this makes it easier to identify. 
     

  • Mark boxes with ‘fragile’ if the contents are breakable or alternatively use our ‘fragile’ tape.
     

  • To assist with air circulation in your storage space, avoid leaning furniture against walls and try to leave gaps when stacking furniture surfaces.
     

  • Think ahead and identify which items you may need to access more frequently
     

  • Pack seasonal equipment such as skis or tennis gear at the front
