When you are moving home, packing up to go abroad temporarily or even moving offices; the one thing that you will need is boxes, and plenty of them!

It isn’t a good idea to put your valuables in old supermarket boxes, for a start they have been used before and probably kicked about, so they won’t be strong and durable.

The best boxes to use can be bought from a specialised removal and packing company like Happy 2 Move. Their boxes are brand new, durable and designed for transportation.

Tips for Packing Boxes for Removal

  • Make a list of the items in the room.
  • Buy your boxes – Here at Happy 2 Move we can supply you with everything you’ll need and we can advise you about the number of boxes and the sizes you will need.
  • Pack non- essential items as early as possible.
  • Label the boxes clearly and put them in a safe place where they won’t get damaged. Remember if you stacking boxes- don’t put breakables at the bottom.
  • Place tissue paper at the bottom of boxes before you add breakables and then wrap each item individually in paper or bubble wrap.
  • Don’t put too much in a box, it will make it difficult to pick up.
  • Make sure the boxes can be closed flat. If items are sticking out they could get damaged.
  • Keep any nuts, bolts and screws together in a bag and make sure it is sealed.
  • Make a useful box. Pack a box with a kettle, cups, cutlery, toilet roll, and any essential medicines. You can open this box first when you arrive. If you’re planning to celebrate don’t forget the bottle opener.
  • Box up important paperwork together, so you know exactly where to look if you need anything.
