Moving Tips to make your Life Easier!

Moving the contents of your home can be a daunting task. There is much to remember and depending on how much help you have, the workload can be high.

Our friendly and trained team at our Self Storage facilities in Hume, Queanbeyan, Mitchell and Phillip can help you with all of the moving materials that you’re going to need like cartons and tape and bubble wrap. Do not underestimate how many boxes at you will need: you will be very surprised at how many you will go through in the process of packing up all of your belongings. Don’t forget the garage or the tool shed, these can consume a lot of boxes especially for tools. Make sure that you use good-quality cartons as tools were sharp points can poke through easily.

Use at least three pieces of tape on the bottom of each box and also one piece at 90°. This will help prevent the bottom falling out of the box. A label for each box is ideal but a Texta will do the same job. Don’t commit the contents to memory: you might remember now what you put in the box but in a month when you unpack, you won’t remember!

Many removalists charge by the hour. Assemble all of your boxes in the one place if you can; it will reduce the amount of travelling time within your home when the removalists is loading the truck. It’s all about saving time and money.
