Moving your belongings and furniture is one thing, but to get them there safely and free from damage is a task on its own. Whilst in the midst of organising the big move, many of us often forget the importance of properly packaging our items, so that they are able to reach the destination in without any damage.
To help resolve this issue, we’ve put together some of our top tips on how to pack your furniture to reduce the risk of damage.
1: Box it up!
It’s always best to keep separate boxes for each of your rooms, so you know exactly what is in each box. Try to find a box that is best fitted for the size of the items; a box too big can have a lot of empty space causing the items to move around in transit.
Another useful tip is to use scrunched up newspaper or bubble wrap to create padding in the empty gaps! Old clothing can also do the job.
2: Wrap each glass item individually.
When it comes to glass items you need to be extremely careful when packing as stacking items can cause the items to scratch inside and also brake in some cases. This is why it is best to individually wrap each glass item, such as mugs, glasses, plates etc. to keep them in the best condition.
3: Use quality packing materials
Always use good quality packing materials; after all, you are using it to pack your prized possessions, so you want the materials to be able to hold the items securely.
4: Disassemble furniture
If you have any furniture that you put together yourself, then it may be worth to disassemble the item. This would make it so much easier to transport, and would also save you money on storage space. Any loose screws and bolts should be placed in a plastic bag and attached to the item, this way the smaller parts won’t get lost.
