Tips and tricks to keep your belongings protected
When you begin the packing process it is important to remember that each item will require space during the move and at your new home. Take this time to clear out any old items that you no longer use or wear and donate where possible. There are many different methods that people use when packing their clothing and household goods. Some common methods include:
- Rolling your clothing rather than folding. This saves space and can offer cushioning inside boxes for fragile items.
- Wrapping a garbage bag around clothing on coat hangers. This allows you to keep each item hanging together, meaning that when you arrive at your new home it is as easy as hanging your clothes and removing the bag. No additional ironing required!
- Some people choose to leave their drawers full of clothes and secure the compartments. We don’t usually recommend this as the drawers are unnecessarily heavy and if they become unstuck it is an instant hazard for your family and the removal staff.
