Packing Tips for Your International Removals
with Alexander James International Removals


International Removals France UK

Packing your belongings may seem easy but can easily turn into a nightmare... not enough boxes, bubble wrap, sticky tape can cause last minutes dashes to shops that may not sell what you need.

Pets under your feet and children bored because their favourite toys are sealed in a box!

All this and more can mean that your moving day will be stressful, especially if you are moving abroad.

Alexander James International Removals provides a full or partial packing service but if you decide to do it yourself then here are a few tips that may help your packing go smoothly.

  • Spend some time considering how you are going to pack your possessions. Books are easy but heavy, valuables need careful wrapping and will take time and some furniture may need to be dismantled.

  • Start early. Packing always takes longer than anticipated, particularly when you start reminiscing over old photographs stored in the attic or you realise that you need to dismantle the wardrobe to get it downstairs.

  • Keep all boxes for each room together. This will save time unpacking.

  • Begin at the top of the house and move downwards. If you have an attic, it's a good idea to sort it out first.

  • Pack one room at a time, clearly labelling each box with details of its contents and the room to which it belongs. Clearly label boxes that contain breakables and also those that are load-bearing and can be stacked in the van.

  • Always pack heavy items in small boxes. It will make transporting them easier. Also, keep the weight of all boxes to a minimum to avoid any back injuries.

  • Wrap items individually and place in a box that's been lined with several layers of newspaper and a sheet of bubble wrap. Any breakables should also be wrapped in bubble wrap. Use clean tissue or wrapping paper for the first layer to prevent newspaper print leaving marks. Pillows and blankets are also useful for wrapping valuables and protecting furniture prone to dents and scratches.

  • Pack important documents together, such as birth and marriage certificates, and keep them in a safe place.

  • It may sound obvious but pack heavier items on the bottom of the box and lighter items on top.
