When packing up boxes etc... play tetris - its fun ! plus methodical
A kitchen box of china/crockery should always have some bubble wrap or similar to base of the box.
Please check weight per box (plates can crack due to excessive weight) flute glasses should be paper wrapped and placed upside down into box.
Large picture frames/mirrors should not require wrapping by yourselves - we can do that. Boxes and if possible baggage should be marked to allocated rooms.
If you are carrying out your own assembly, put all nuts, bolts, screws into a bag and label to per item
Chests of drawers and bedside units don't need to be emptied; it's pointless.
Did you know most moving costs are saved by prior organised arrangements, and being methodical such as..... time off, child care, utility bills. Keeping stuff you dont want means you end up paying to get it moved!! and so on...
When packing up boxes start well in advance - 2 to 3 weeks is great. Don't over-fill as box weight should be less than 30 kilos. Start with 2 or 3 boxes. This will give you an idea of how much packaging materials is required. Thereafter pack a few boxes a day (hey presto it's done).
