Manchester Removals Advice: Five Tips on Packing

  • Use the opportunity to clear things out.   You will come to quickly realise that packing up an entire home, where you and your family or loved ones have lived for years, is a monumental task.  One of the best ways to kill two birds with one stone is to have a clear out while you’re packing.   Make piles for donations, to sell, etc and watch the amount you have to pack shrink!
  • Have a box for essentials.   You are going to need a few things on your first night in your new home, so pack up all the essentials into one box you can easily access.  Things like toiletries, the kettle and tea bags, hair dryer, etc.
  • Laundry first.   Don’t pack dirty clothes!  It may seem obvious, but you are going to have enough work unpacking and setting up your new home, don’t add laundry to the list!
  • Colour-code your boxes.   Mark your boxes with coloured stickers or post-its so the movers and your family have an easy way of telling which boxes go in which rooms
  •  Weight issues.   It may go without saying, but if you overfill that box with heavy stuff you’ll never be able to move it.   Half fill heavy boxes, pack in towels or clothes with books, and utilize your rolling luggage collection!
