When it comes to packing boxes in preparation for a big move, many tend to just throw their belongings into boxes and hope for the best. However, this is no safe as your items can become damaged while in transit.
Calculate how many boxes you will need and get these well in advance. The chances are, you are going to need a variety of different sized boxes which can be obtained from Joe Bonnie & Son Moving & Storage. We stock a number of boxes all in different sizes as well as heavy duty tape, bubble wrap and crate packing materials. Making a list of all the packing resources you’ll need ahead of time will keep you on track when it comes to your move.
It’s important not to fill large boxes to capacity as they will be too heavy to lift or carry. With this in mind, use sturdy boxes, especially for heavier items. Otherwise, your belongings may end up falling out throughout the move or damaged. Boxes made from corrugated cardboard are stronger than regular ones, so source these and hang onto any old newspaper to use as padding.
Accidents Do Happen
From time to time accidents can happen and one of your belongings may end up damaged during a move. Before the day of the move, it’s important to check that your home or contents insurance covers any damage or breakages during the move. It’s also good idea to put any hazardous materials such as paint, bleach or aerosols into a separate box, away from the rest of your belongings.
