How to Correctly Pack when Moving Home in Surrey

When the subject of moving to a new house happens, packing boxes isn’t usually a favourite aspect of relocating. It can seem like a never-ending chore that soon begins tedious before we consider cutting corners to get it done. However, it’s better to avoid the temptation to bag and box in a rush. You should take your time and complete an inventory as you go, enlisting some family members to lighten the workload a bit.

This is our first piece of advice – don’t rush when packing your things up before you relocate. It’s likely to cause breakages and damage, which is preventable if you do things thoroughly. Additionally, by taking the time to inventory and put notes on each box as you pack, it will make things much easier when you unload. And for people who are really in the know – you can always get the WH Cox team to do the packing for you.

Packing Correctly When Moving Home in Surrey –

There are many different ways to approach packing, and we hope that some of our tips will be helpful. If you give yourself plenty of time, it’s always a good idea to declutter and get rid of anything you rarely or no longer use. It’s time to sell, give away or recycle. Another advantage of doing this is starting with a clean slate when you arrive in your new home.

Next, you should separate things that are valuable or fragile. They’ll need to be given extra packaging and kept away from bulky furniture during transit. Remember to clearly mark any important notes on the box with a label, including a visible fragile sticker. All glass items should be in a few layers of bubble wrap and put into a box with lots of cushioning. And it’s crucial that you don’t overpack these boxes.

No matter how many boxes and pieces of furniture you’re moving with, it’s vital that you make an inventory of your possessions. You can do this with pen and paper if you like, but we would suggest something more modern, such as a home inventory app. Inventories are lifesavers when you start unpacking. You can also use them for insurance purposes and to send to our team so that we can assign the correct removals package for you.

Other Tips for a Successful Relocation –

WH Cox moves thousands of people in Surrey and the surrounding areas every month, often working in the connecting counties and London. We do all types of removals – no job is too big or small for us.

Fortunately for our customers, we have a team of removals experts with decades worth of packing experience. This is critical when avoiding any unnecessary breakages or damages. Unfortunately, it’s something that a lot of mid to lower-tier removals companies get wrong, and it results in a poor level of customer service.
