If you are moving to a new house. It would be wise to plan and organize your move 2 to 3 weeks in advance. You may have engaged a mover to do the moving for you, but a majority of us prefers to pack our own items. This is also the best opportunity to organize and discard un-used or un-wanted item away.
Besides, packing your items in the moving box by yourself will save you a lot of costs, instead of letting the movers do everything. Always purchase directly from Moving Box Singapore, you will get clean new carton boxes, instead of some old used carton box given by the movers.
Before you starts, always has a list of packing supplies ready.
1 quantity of moving boxes, small, medium, big.
2 masking tape or clear tape.
3 cutter, penknife or tape dispenser
4 loose fill, or foam material
5 bubble wrap for fragile items
6 buddle wrap for wrapping smaller items
7 stretch wrap for bigger items.
8 a marker pen for labeling the boxes.
9 raffle strings for tying things together.
You will need to estimate how many moving boxes you need, starting from each room, to living hall, kitchen, utility room etc.. Next is to estimate the sizes of the box you need for different room base on what items you need to pack. Just a guide, a usual bedroom will need an estimate of 15 to 20 boxes of either a small or medium size moving boxes.
This is a guide on the size of a box that we have in Carton Boxes Singapore:
Smaller Box - C544 - L45cm x W40cm x H40cm
Medium Box - C645 - L60cm x W40cm x H50cm
Larger Box - C655 - L65cm x W45cm x H55cm
Our moving boxes are all double wall corrugated paper box. All boxes are flattened and packed in quantities of tens.
When doing the packing, always use the bigger box for the light object and the smaller box for the heavy object. Books, computer, and tools are preferably put in a smaller box. Large boxes are good for light items like blankets, clothing, or stuffed animals.
Always label the moving box, according to the room to be packed. Label the name of the person or room name on the cartons. List and label the items that are put inside the box. Label clearly outside the box so that unpacking will be a lot easier at the new place.
Place all small and miscellaneous items together, like small objects and tools should be kept together based on where they belong. For example, you can pack a box of stationery supplies with pens, paperweights, staplers, and paper clips tossed in together.
Don't pack furniture and major appliance in the cartons. They should be wrapped in padded moving blankets. The oversize object should be wrap using bubble wrap, corrugated paper and final wrap using a plastic stretch wrap. If you hired a mover, they may do this for you.
Fragile items should be wrap using bubble wrap and put in a smaller moving box. Loose fill may be used to fill up the entire lose space to protect the fragile items from moving during transportation. The smaller fragile item should be placed on top and the heavy items at the bottom. If the overall weight is going to be heavy, it is advisable to put additional corrugated sheet at the bottom of the box as a cushioning base. Lastly, remember to label the word "Fragile" on all four sides of the box.
Don't overstuff boxes with fragile items. When you are done packing each box, close the top. Seal the top and the bottom along the openings and seams with packing tape.
