Packing Boxes

  • Prior to packing boxes, you'll need to wrap most items to guard them from scratching and shatter. There are aselection of supplies to be had,including bubble pack, foam peanuts and tissue paper.
  • Support the bottom of boxes with adhesive packing tape the last thing we want is to pick a box up and the bottomopen up and everything crashes to the floor.
  • Fill boxes securely and pack well to prevent the contents from moving during your move.
  • Close up boxes securely with packing tape.
  • Boxes should be no more than 30kg in weight
  • Group records and CDs vertically in boxes do not stack them flat.
  • Place weighty items in the bottom of the box and lighter items at the top.
  • Detach tops and lids from jars and china and wrap them separately.
  • Fasten any opened boxes and bottles before packing them to prevent spills and seepage.
  • Plug in small spaces in each box with smaller paperbacks. rotate bindings every few books to keep piles level ineach box tape shut and mark box books.
  • Where appropriate mark boxes that need to be a certain way up we always move boxes in a upright position butthere are items that need to be "THIS WAY UP"
