5 Packing Steps for an Easy Move

Norman Ferns Removals has been operating for over 70 years, so we’re extremely well versed in the do’s and don’ts of moving and packing. We are always happy to share our insider knowledge on the important packing steps to help your transition is smooth.

Use Quality Packing Materials

Your items go through a lot during a move, from packing and carrying to loading and unloading, so you need to be sure you can trust the stability of your packing materials to avoid any damage. Strong boxes to withstand heavy items, and secure wrapping inside that can protect fragile items from breaking are available to buy here at Norman Ferns Removals.

Pack Well in Advance

Moving can be a challenging period, especially if you do everything last minute. If you start packing at least a month before your move, even just a box a day, it can lighten your load drastically and ensure you are ready come moving day stress-free!

Label Everything

Labelling your boxes according to the items inside is a great way to not only make unpacking easier but it allows you to store and move the items in a secure manner. For example, when loading into a vehicle, you will want the sturdier boxes filled with heavy objects like books at the bottom, meaning your fragile items like crockery and ornaments won’t be crushed in transit.

Recruit Some Help!

Whether you’ve got a lot of belongings needed to be packed, or you’re pressed for time before the move, we can help! Here at Norman Ferns Removals, we offer a full or part-packing service to help make your transition easier.

Keep Some Essentials to the Side

When you arrive at your new property, you don’t want to be searching through boxes to find items that you need promptly. This is why we recommend keeping a container of essentials that is easily accessible at any point during the moving day. This can include; chargers and devices, ingredients and equipment to make food, toiletries and a first aid kit.
