Professional Packing Tips for Braintree Clients

  • When requesting packing supplies from us, or going to purchase them yourselves, be liberal in the quantity you ask for or purchase. You’ll be surprised how much paper, wrapping, boxes and tape you go through packing, even when just moving from a small Braintree flat or office. Running out can set the entire process back a while.In terms of quality, there’s not much to say – most bubble wrap, wrapping paper, boxes and tape are of a similar standard, but beware anything that looks overly cheap or flimsy.
  • Overloading is a major concern, so don’t place more than 30lbs in a box. Around this point, the chances it will split are greatly increased. Fragile belongings could break, and less fragile ones could fall onto toes and cause injury. Heavy boxes has also caused injury to many staff at removal companies like ours near Braintree, including strains. So keep it fairly light and then move onto the next box for the good of people and property.
  • Any gaps in boxes should be filled with packing paper, old newspaper or wrapping. This will help safeguard their contents and make them easier/less risky to lift.
  • To put a removal company mantra forward: “heavy item = small box”. You don’t want to spread its weight across a large surface areas, as this will increase the likelihood of it falling through or splitting the box. The quality of the box is also important here. Choose something heavy duty (please request these should you require them).
  • Following a house clearance and your arrival at your new property, you’ll want to fairly quickly get the unpacking going and establish your new home! Carefully labelling boxes ensures you can approach this process efficiently, and with an order of priority.
