Tips for safe and sensible packing.

Pack well for hassle-free relocation.

Packing is the most important stage in the relocation process. If you pack everything perfectly, the next stages of the home or commercial shifting process will follow smoothly.

Pack the things that you would need immediately in your home, or office, first. Now keep these boxes separately and make sure that they are put in the vehicle last so that these are the first boxes to be unloaded.

When you are packing your things, ensure that you put the heavier items in the bottom of the boxes and put lighter ones on the top. Also, do not leave any space in the boxes empty so that the items in the boxes do not move while being transported. You can fill these empty spaces with towels, clothes, newspaper or wrapping paper.

Do not put stuff from different rooms in the same box. This will make the unpacking process very complicated and time-consuming. Also, once you have packed the boxes, make sure that you label them correctly. Do not only label the boxes with the room names but also make sure to mention the contents.

Take care of fragile items.

When packing glass items or other delicate items, remember to wrap them in bubble wrap and securely tape the wrap. Also, when you are done packing this box, put a fragile sticker on it. Ensure that you tape all the boxes properly.

When packing dishes, make sure that you wrap each dish, with paper, separately and then you wrap them again in groups of 5 or 6. Remember to always store dishes vertically and not flat on the ground. Also, put proper padding, with paper, above and below the plates.

There are certain items that cannot be shipped, domestically or internationally, along with your other household or office items. These include flammable items like gas canisters, aerosol cans, firearms and other destructive materials like wood, brick, cement, etc. Perishable items, food, odorous items and other articles that may damage its surrounding items should not be shipped.
