Moving and Packing Tips

Looking for moving and packing advice from the experts? We’ve spent more over 20 years collecting tips and tricks to save you money!

 

Moving tips

  • Make your reservations for movers two to four weeks before your move day.
  • For large appliances be sure to check your owner’s manuals to see if there are special instructions for moving.
  • Don’t try to get rid of your children’s favourite things before the move – even if it makes it easier. Kids sometimes have a hard time dealing with the change of the move itself.
  • By law, a moving company can’t transport hazardous materials such as gasoline, bottled gases and other flammables, ammunition and explosives.
  • Pack a box of essential items that you will need immediately after the move and make sure it’s the last thing added to the truck.
  • Clean out wardrobes, the loft, and the cellar as soon as you decide it’s time to move.
  • Make a “survival wardrobe” of things for the last cleanup before you move out – broom, dust cloth, dust pan, mop.
  • Remember to get snacks for move day.
  • Schedule disconnect times for about a week before your move day — you don’t want to have to pay for cable or satellite TV, phone and utilities when you aren’t even there!
  • Cancel newspapers, cable or satellite TV, pest control, cleaning help, garden services about a week before the move.
  • Clean your oven and hob before you move out.
  • The day before your move, defrost the fridge and freezer.
  • Make sure to get enough cash to get you through move day.
  • Take time to say goodbye to friends and neighbours before your busy move day.
  • If you are depending on friends and family to help you move, have a back-up plan if they don’t show.

Packing tips

  • Avoid mixing items from different rooms in the same box.
  • Use wardrobe boxes to make them easier to pack. Clothes in drawers can be placed in suitcases.
  • Use only small boxes for books. They get very heavy, very fast.
  • Never use printed newsprint to wrap fine china.
  • Always stack dishes upwards when packing.
  • Pack important and sentimental documents separately to be easily accessible including: children’s health records, passports, family records, insurance information and photo albums.
  • Remember: the heavier the item, the smaller the box.
  • Don’t use used boxes. You don’t know if the box will be strong enough to support your possessions.
  • Never use duct tape – use packing tape.
  • Clearly label all boxes on top and side.
  • As you take apart furniture and other items make sure to tape all parts to the main base.
  • Try to pack all electronic equipment, like stereos in their original boxes. Otherwise use bubble wrap when packing these items.
  • Start packing items you will not need ahead of time.
  • Always pack and unpack breakables over a padded surface.
  • Always tape boxes. Don’t interlock the tops.
  • Don’t use boxes without tops. No tops make it impossible to stack properly in the truck.
  • Use custom-designed boxes when packing fine china and clothing.

I had a lot more stuff to move than my quote was based on but the removal team said it wasn't a problem and moved everything in less time than I had been quoted. I would definitely consider using the company again and would happily recommend them to friends.
