When it comes to moving house, good quality packaging can seem like an extra expense you really don’t need. But the truth is that skimping on packaging materials can be more hassle than it’s worth. Here are our top tips for making sure your possessions arrive safely.
1. Always use double-walled boxes
Using single walled cardboard boxes is asking for trouble on the day. It doesn’t take much to overload them causing the bottom to fall through, and it’s not possible to safely stack them either. Using strong double-walled boxes is the easiest way to secure your possessions.
2. Invest in good quality tape
Teaming single-walled cardboard with poor quality tape is a disaster waiting to happen and broken goods are the last thing you need on moving day. Broken goods will slow down the process of moving house and make it far more stressful. Good quality tape will ensure your boxes are properly sealed and don’t fall through.
3. Never underestimate the power of bubble wrap!
As well as wrapping crockery and glass, we also recommend wrapping all metals that may scratch easily, plastics such as CDs, sharp objects and paintings, as well as and any precious ornaments. You’ll thank yourself after the move!
So, make sure you invest in quality packaging – it’s a small expense but can make all the difference. Visit our ‘Packaging Supplies’ page for a list of the products we offer. If you’re based within Bristol City, we’ll deliver them for free.
