If you wish to do the packing yourself then the following tips may help
Tip 1: Careful planning saves time
Moving house is always a most stressful time. Preparation and planning are essential components of a successful, efficient move. It is also best to book our services early, to ensure we’re available for your required time and date.
Tip 2: Start packing early
The easiest way to save money is to do the packing yourself. It is a good idea to start packing as early as possible, maybe a few weeks in advance, which gives you a chance to work out what to keep or discard, give away, sell or use up, in this way you can actually cut down what you have to move, saving valuable time and costs. Call us at AA Moves in advance for supplies of boxes, bubble wrap and packing materials and plenty of friendly, professional advice.
Tip 3: Get plenty of packing materials
Always have plenty of transit boxes. It is better to have extra boxes left over, than run out at a crucial time on the day. Packing boxes can always be returned, if undamaged and unused. Make sure you have plenty of packing tape, bubble wrap, tissue or newspaper, string and other packing materials on hand.
Tip 4: Organize Boxes
Organize boxes into ones contents needed first or later. Make sure you pack your belongings carefully and label each box clearly, such as, needed first in bold red letters, less used or low priority items can then be unpacked at your leisure. Pack your books and other heavy objects in smaller boxes so that they’re easier to handle. When lifting squat and use your feet to lift, do not bend over.
