Moving is a daunting task. But there are ways to make your move more
efficient & organized. The following guide would save
you time and effort during and after moving.
Prepare the following prior to packing:
• Carton Boxes
• Bubble Wrap
• Masking Tape
• Measuring Tape
It is best to use strong boxes of medium size, or a size
that is easy for you to move it around. Boxes should not
exceed 20kg for mobility & safety. Try to combine heavy
items with lighter items to balance out the weight &
maximizing carton space. Placing heavy items first
followed by lighter items on top. Make sure to secure
box well at the bottom with strong tape so that contents
will not spill out when moving. Special boxes can be
purchased for clothing where you can pack your clothes
that are on the hanger directly into the boxes, which
makes it a breeze to pack & unpack. Boxes can be
obtained through the moving company. Some would also
provide them free of charge when you engage them for
It is advisable to pack books & magazines in small boxes
as they can be very heavy. Pack them tightly. To avoid
musky smells, you can dust some talcum powder in-between
the pages and wrap the books prior to packing. Leave for
a couple of months to eliminate the musky smell.
If possible, pack audio/video equipment in their
original boxes. If you do not have the original boxes,
ask your moving company if they have a suitable box for
the size of your audio/video equipment. If there are no
boxes available, check with your moving company if they
will provide protective wrapping for the equipment.
There are a few ways to label boxes. Choose one that you
find most effective for you when unpacking. You can
label each box by:
2. Colour Stickers/Markers
4. Or a combination of all the above
Remember to label boxes clearly when they contain
fragile items. Protect such items with either bubble
wrap, newspapers or towels. Use lots of paper or bubble
wrap for glass wares so that it will buffer any impact
from the move. Pack plates and glasses vertically and
wrap them individually with paper.
It is easier to divide packing into rooms/areas, which
would make it more manageable & less overwhelming. Start
packing ahead of your designated moving date so you can
stagger packing. Pack one room at a time.
Note which boxes should be moved first and let your
movers know. Stack boxes according to their sizes so
that they can be more efficiently carted into the lorry.
This will save time and also enable boxes to be neatly
stacked in the lorry to maximize space.
Pack liquids in leak-proof containers & label the boxes
Last but not least, all valuables should travel with
you. If you have treasured items like expensive art
pieces or antiques, it is best to have them insured or
check with your moving company if they have insurance
covering these items.
A well planned move would ease your transition to your
new home, making it a more pleasant experience.
