Packing Tips

Packing Tips

Below is a guide of what to put in each size of box, try to keep the boxes 20kg and under, you may of hired a removal company to move you to your new house, but you will still have to lift the boxes from room to room in the new house. Heavy items should be placed in smaller boxes.

It’s best practise to use double walled boxes as these are stronger for removal purposes and will stack better, single walled boxes may crush when stacked on top of each other.

Below are some guides of which boxes to use for various items.
