When you are packing yourself

The fee we offer gives you motivation to be packed-up ready and organised on the day of your move. The more organised you are on the day of the removal the quicker and thus cheaper the move will be.

Some of these tips may seem like common sense, but they are often forgotten during a move. If you have any questions please call us and we will assist you in any way we can.

  • Start by packing items you do not use every day.
  • Pack-up your boxes and stack together and ready to go.
  • Have beds, cots, dryers, washing machines and furniture dismantled and ready to go remembering to put the bolts and fittings in a plastic bag and fasten with tape so it will be safe.
  • Tape keys in a secure place.
  • When packing, use the correct Removals Boxes as they are designed for moving.
  • Clearly mark each box, showing which room it should go. Label fragile boxes boldly so we will top load.
  • Cloth or leather items should be covered with protective plastic to prevent stains or damage.
  • Carpet and Rugs should be cleaned before the move.
  • Remove globes and shades from all lamps. Lamp shades should be packed separately in a strong box. To protect wrap them in bubble wrap. As packing use butchers paper rather than newspaper as ink makes items very dirty and dusty.
  • Glass tables and glass doors on furniture should be wrapped with stretch wrap or bubble wrap for safe transport.
  • Dry and tinned foods may be moved as long as they are packed in a strong box.
  • Food stuffs are not to be moved into storage.
  • Hazardous materials cannot be moved or stored. We are not permitted to carry gas bottles.
  • Lawnmowers and other gear with fuel must be completely drained prior to removal.
  • Drawers in furniture should be cleared of heavy items. Light clothing only may be left in sturdy furniture.
  • Appliances should be disconnected prior to your removalist team arriving. Also, take down shelves, light fixtures etc if applicable.
  • Pack biggest and heaviest items in bottom of box first. Books and other heavy items should be packed in small boxes.
  • Large mirrors or pictures should be wrapped individually, covering both sides with bubble wrap or stretch wrap then fasten with tape.
  • Items should be packed in boxes that are the proper size. If there is empty space in the box use butchers paper to fill the little gaps.
  • Small appliances and electronics should be packed in the boxes they came in when possible.
  • Dishes and glassware you should use butchers paper. Pack dishes on their sides.
  • Fridge drip trays should be drained.
  • Wrap sharp tools with care to prevent injury.
  • Ensure adequate parking is available for the removalist truck.
  • We recommend that clothing be packed in wardrobe boxes. Fill the bottom of the boxes with lightweight items.


Specialist furniture removals requires special handling, when you have items such as pianos, pool tables, Spa baths and heavy tables ask your removalist how to prepare for these appliances.
