Moving home, where do I start with the packing?

When packing for a move, it’s helpful to start by making a list of everything you need to pack and organize your items by room. It’s also a good idea to declutter before you start packing, so you’re not moving unnecessary items. It’s also recommended to start packing early, so you have enough time to pack everything properly and label all the boxes. Some other things to consider when packing include:

Packing essential items, such as important documents and essentials for the first night in your new home, in a separate, clearly labeled box that you can easily access.

Using sturdy boxes and packing materials, such as bubble wrap and packing peanuts, to protect your items during the move.

Labeling all of your boxes with their contents and the room they belong in, so you can easily unpack them once you reach your new home.

Disassembling large items, such as beds and desks, before you pack them to save space.

Using suitcases and other bags to pack clothing and linens.
