Packing Tips For Home Removals

Hello, my name is Pippa. Welcome to my blog. Earlier this year, we decided to move to a bigger home. Our house was bursting at the seams with three kids and a handful of pets so we decided to move to a bigger property further out of town. To be honest, I didn’t think that the moving process would take much effort on our part, but I forgot just how much stuff we have. I also wanted to make unpacking as smooth as possible so we knew exactly where everything was and weren’t living out of boxes for weeks. While we got some useful packing advice and help from our removalists, my husband and I also put together a packing plan that suited us and the kids. I started this website to jot down some of our ideas and tips — hope it helps you pack effectively for your move!

How To Reduce Anxiety When Moving

The moving day is highly demanding for you, your family, or your business. Moving increases stress and anxiety in everyone involved. This anxiety might persist until you settle into your new place. You can minimise the stress by hiring removalists and taking their recommendations regarding different subjects. This piece discusses some valuable tips that reduce anxiety when moving.

Packing Properly

The packing process is part of the preparations you make before moving. Packing your items reduces the chances of accidents. For example, ensure you cushion the edges of packing boxes used for glasses, televisions, mirrors, and other fragile items. You may also take measures to prevent a mix-up of chemicals, water, explosives, valuable documents etc. 

Packing makes your items compact and easy to handle. You may also minimise the space your items occupy in the moving vehicle or storage. The removalists also assist in packing by supplying packing supplies and recommending various handling methods to ensure your items are safe. 

Using Proper Equipment

Light items are easy to handle, but heavy ones require special handling. Your removalist might bring toe jacks, skates, a forklift, lift buddy, or pulleys to move. These items help you make the moving operation easy. Still, ensure the person operating the equipment understands its functioning to minimise the chances of an accident. 

Using the right tools ensures your items are safe when loading and unloading them from the truck. For example, strapping furniture to a forklift ensures that your things do not slip and fall when lifting them into the car. The hydraulic system in such equipment helps the driver perform fine adjustments and rectify errors precisely when loading and unloading. 


You may not have a choice when relocating in a hurry. However, if you have enough time to plan for the relocation, pick a date that is convenient for everyone. Removalists are resourceful and flexible with the date you choose. Still, how do you select an appropriate date to relocate?

First, ensure you select a weekend when you are not at work. Most businesses also close on weekends; therefore, relocating the firm becomes easier on Sundays, Saturdays, or nighttime. If you require a large truck, trailer, or other machines that take up huge spaces on the road, ensure you pick a time when there is minimal traffic, such as weekends or evenings. 

You can reduce stress when moving by packing correctly, using the right equipment, and proper timing.
