Moving can be overwhelming and we often find ourselves asking, “Where do I start”? Our answer would be to plan a strategic packing plan. Packing takes time and can become extremely tiring. Trust us – we know!

Here are a few tips to help you pack effectively and efficiently. These tips will definitely benefit your moving process and might just save you some time.

Tips on Effective Packing During a Move

  1. Time Management is extremely important for every move. Ensure that you pack as soon as you can saving you time and ensuring you are ready for your move date
  2. All it takes is one room at a time – avoid trying to do it all at once. Start with the least important rooms.
  3. Declutter all areas and get rid of goods you will not be needing. Maybe hold a garage sale and earn a few extra pounds.
  4. Avoid over packing boxes, the less weight the better. This might mean that you need more boxes but rather that than a sore back, right?
  5. Fill up those empty gaps in the boxes – this is to provide extra protection for your goods.
  6. Labelling is one of the smartest moving tips. This gives you structure and will ensure you are aware of where your goods are.
  7. When packing your boxes, place all heavy boxes at the bottom. This avoids damaging your possessions.
  8. Be sure to pack an essentials box! Yip all toiletries, snacks and emergency items should be packed separately and should be easily accessible.
