After all, you cannot simply put all of your things in plastic bags and throw them on the removal van. The following lines will help you pick up the packing material that will best suit your needs.
Boxes – moving boxes are actually a must for every removal. They are made of cardboard and hence they can contain heavy items as they can stand their weight. The best thing about moving boxes is the fact that you can find them in different sizes so you can conveniently different items in the different boxes. For an effortless removal you need to have at least one large, one medium and one small box. Depending on the amount of your items, you might need more from each type. Once you place everything in a box you can securely seal it and open it at the new place.
Bubble wrap – the most essential material when it comes to packing fragile items such as glasses, cups, plates, etc. Bubble wrap is usually a not very cheap material but it is totally worth it when it comes to securing your fragile things.
Paper – yes, we are talking about simple plain paper. It is irreplaceable when it comes to filling spaces into the boxes. It is better to use plain paper rather than a newspaper as the ink from it might unpleasantly colour your things. Trolleys – a must when it comes to moving the furniture. And especially if you have decided to do the removal by yourself. Trolleys are your best helper when the time comes to move your large pieces of furniture – wardrobes, refrigerator, washing machine, etc.)
