Whilst there is always an element of surprise involved in booking a removals company, with packing, you can make sure that everything is sorted in advance, so that nothing goes wrong in that department as the move proceeds. When you book your removals company W1, you will not be able to predict how they will be on the day. Even if you have read customer reviews that suggest that they were fantastic for them, you can never tell if the foreman is going to be in a bad mood and that the whole team may react badly to it, so it is worth ensuring that nothing can go wrong as for as your items’ safety is concerned. Packing W1 is the most important aspect of the moving process in many ways, as it will be the thing between those who are handling your things, and your fragile belongings themselves.

So, if packing is the most important aspect of your W1 move, then how should you be going about it? Well, to start with you need to give yourself a good amount of time to get everything done, as rushing things will only make your work shoddy and less effective. Having plenty of materials on hand will also make things more effective, as it is often the case that running out of something while packing will mean that you try and make do with other materials, as you can’t be bothered to run to the shops! This will often mean that your makeshift packing will not be as successful as it probably should be. So what materials do you need to make sure you have plenty of? There are the obvious things, like boxes, bubble wrap, newspaper and packing tape, but things like extra card, box cutters and craft knives as well as marker pens are sometimes overlooked.

Be sure to avoid using too much bubble wrap, as it will often just mean that you are wasting space in each box, which means that you will be wasting money on extra boxes. Using tissue paper and newsprint can be good for filling spaces and stopping things from being knocked about, and one layer of bubble wrap on more precious things will usually be completely adequate. You will need to be careful to give things enough protection, but also to make sure that you are not wasting materials in the process, as this will only make things expensive and annoying when you have to go back to the shops to get more stuff!

Using certain items like a packing tape dispenser can make the process all the more easy, especially if you are having to apck up loads of boxes. These gadgets will mean that you do not spend ages wasting time whilst trying to find the end of the tape, and having to bite it to cut it, which can hurt your teeth. They distribute and cut the tape for you, maximizing the amount of tape you use effectively.

Using newsprint is a very eco-friendly way of packing things, as it is often extremely recyclable, which is great, but watch out for the newsprint transferring on to precious items, as this can damage or mark the veneers on certain antiques and wood items.

Hopefully these pointers on making your packing as effective as possible will mean that your items remain safe and sound throughout the move, no matter how good your W1 movers are!
