Use Removal Boxes To Make Moving Home Easy!
I sometimes turn up on jobs and everything is packed in bin liners. Don’t get me wrong they are cheap can keep things clean like bedding pillows clothes cushions teddy bears, soft light items, but when they are used to put 30 or so books in they will tear and things will get damaged. I have even had customers put the contents of kitchen cupboards in bin liners pots pans carving knifes the entire cutlery set. When trying to walk holding these bags, if you attempt it, your ankles and thighs will be getting slashed with knifes protruding from bin bags. So they are useful when moving home but only for certain items.
- Small Removal Box for packing compact or heavy items like photo albums, CDs, books, dishes, glassware, etc.
- Medium Removal Box Use the medium size for packing mid-weight items like kitchen appliances, toys, or shoes.
- Large Removal Box Use the large size for packing lighter, bulkier items, such as towels, bedding, cushions, or clothing. If you do not put in bin bag planning a move can be difficult, but you don’t have to give in to the stress. Removal Boxes can help you manage your move like a pro from start to finish.

Moving Home Tips
To begin, you will need boxes, cushioning materials such as bubble wrap and packing paper, scissors, Stanley knife, box labels, permanent markers, tape.
- Start packing in a space that is not often used such as a cellar or garage.
- Set up a folding table so you can pack boxes at a comfy height.
- Pack heavier items at the bottom of a box and more fragile items near the top.
- Line the bottom of the box with cushioning materials such as bubble wrap, packing tissue, or even paper towels.
- Wrap fragile items in bubble wrap or tissue paper before packing them up.
- Fill open spaces inside your box with towels or linens to minimise the risk of damage.
- Top off the box with more cushioning materials before you seal it up.
- Write or place a fragile sticker on boxes with fragile items.
- Keep the weight of each box below 20 kg if this is not possible write heavy on the box.
- Avoid placing items from different rooms in the same box when unpacking it will be easier to have things in correct room and save on leg work around the house.
- List the room which the box should be placed and box contents on a label for each box.
- Mark both the top and side of the box for easy recognition.
- Label the removal boxes that need to be unpacked first with a different colour marker.
- Use a sack truck to move stacked boxes always utilise these items and not your back. Be very careful lifting and use proper technique if in doubt do not lift heavy items without help you do not want a back injury for life.
- I will be writing a blog soon about the correct lifting technique to avoid injury.
