Top tips for self-packing:

  • Plan your packing strategically. Start with small items that don’t require much protection, such as cutlery and clothing, then move all the way through to larger items such as appliances.
  • When packing glassware or china cups, remember to place paper or bubble wrap inside as well, to absorb extra impact.
  • Wrap delicate items separately. Porcelain, glass and crystal can knock together, causing damage.
  • When packing small items into large boxes, write a list as you add things. Then tape the list to the box so you can unpack more efficiently at your destination.
  • If you’re putting some of your extra linens or clothing into storage, remember to vacuum-pack them, or pop some cedar balls in the box for protection.
  • When packing and transporting computer monitors, TVs and other screens, add extra protection at the front for the glass. Add ‘this side up’ stickers and other warning labels so the screen isn’t loaded against a wall or floor.
  • Pack a bag of things you’ll need for the first 24 hours after moving. Once you arrive and settle in, you may be too tired to unpack immediately.
