Selling moving boxes and packing items myself. Its shocking to hear what some of my customers have had to say about their experiences of their with a removal company they have used in the past. A couple told me how they caught the men from the removal company dropping boxes from a two story house to the man below who had to catch it and put it in the truck. Or a removal company once told me they to this lady one day who said that they had everything packed up ready to go. Only to find out they were all in plastic bags including. Plate, cups, glasses and other fragile items. In the end they had to wrap everything tightly in removal blankets and hope they none got damaged in the process.
Unless you are there helping the removal company move your items you may not see what they do to try and save time. Even when your items are in the post who knows what the courier driver does. One of my customers who returned a TV to the company under warranty . Sent it by courier. She didn’t have transit insurance. The courier company didn’t secure his load. Therefor while in transit the other boxes he had in his van hit the TV Box. Damaged the TV and she couldn’t get it replaced in the end. If he was doing 40 around the corner. Or having to stop all of a sudden. Image the impact of the boxes flying around the back of the van or truck.
Not all moving stories are bad. You may have moved before and had a great experience. I have head a few of those. Where they have gone the extra mile to help your move go well. When moving with a big or medium company who employ people to move you there is no guarantee that you will get the same guys or girls to move you again. If you have had a good or bad experience let the owners know. If you were really happy with the service. Make sure you keep the names of the people that moved you so you can call on them again or recommend them to your family and friends. Word of mouth is a great way to help a small business.

Here are some tips to help you keep your items safe and damage free while moving and in transit.
- Get good quality cardboard boxes. Twin wall for your fragile items like. Glasses, Cups, Plates, Crystals, Vases and single wall is fine for general house hold items.
- Having a few of the same boxes like the Crystal Boxes for Fragile items. Book and Wine and the Tea Chest, boxes for general house hold items. Will make it easier for stacking in the tuck.
- Portable Robe cardboard boxes are great when moving your shirts, dresses and suites etc.
- When sending items overseas or interstate. Depending on the product going in to the box. You maybe better off with twin wall cardboard boxes or shipping boxes. Did you check and pack the box so the item in there does not get squashed if your box happened to be stacked at the bottom of the van or crate. Keep this in mind as you fill the box should another box be placed on top
- Strong quality tape. Make sure you get good durable tape that sticks well and does not break as it comes off the roll. So this does not come off the boxes as they are being lifted and moved.
- When packing in larger cardboard boxes. Check the weight as you fill it. You don’t want to make these boxes to heavy. Same with packing books in medium cardboard boxes
Pack your cardboard boxes fully to the top. Use butchers paper or newspaper, void fill or bubble wrap to fill and gaps prevent your items moving around. ( remember the newsprint comes off the newspaper. Take care when using this as the print does not get on your items.) Check that the box is packed to the top with no gaps. That way your items do not move around and cause damaged to other items. As this is what causes damage to your items. Should they move around while be transported from one place to another.
- Mark your cardboard boxes clearly. Have fragile Top Load clearly on the box should the items be breakable
- We all know how hard moving can be. Not only physical but also mentally draining. Are you prepared as this is the key to having a stress free move. Having good quality cardboard boxes and packaging supplies will help keep your mind at ease.
