Packing Tips & Moving Checklist

Packing Tips & Moving Checklist

So you are about to move home and need to make sure you have everything taken care of. Below is a comprehensive list of things you may need to make your relocation a success.

First you will need Packing Supplies

  • Strong Boxes or Cartons.
  • Packing Material.
  • Marking Pens.
  • Packing Tape.
  • A checklist of what is inside each box.

If you need extra boxes for moving, please contact our Sunshine Coast office.

Packing tips.

  • Pack similar items together, try to pack items from the same room into the same box. This makes unpacking a lot easier.
  • Keep a detailed checklist of the contents of each box.
  • Make sure there is adequate padding around all your items. Items should not be allowed to move freely inside the box.
  • Properly secure your boxes with packaging tape.
  • Always put the heaviest items at the bottom of the box, whenever possible.
  • Leave enough time to pack so that you can pack properly, and not in a rush.
  • Do not over-pack the cartons, keep the cartons at an acceptable weight.
