Packing Hints for clients who pack their own goods

  • Cartons designed for household removals are designed to be much more robust than other cartons. Supermarket cartons are designed to transport sturdy items, such as cans of food, once only and then be recycled
  • Each carton will be more robust by setting up the carton by tipping upside down and folding flaps in left and right, left and right, then taping the bottom of carton securely. Do not cross them
  • Once the carton is full, ensure cartons are firm at the top, fold flaps in same manner as the bottom and seal with tape
  • When packing use plenty of paper as padding and wrapping
  • China should be placed into standard cartons and should always be well padded with paper on all sides
  • Linen can be placed into standard cartons lined with paper
  • Pack heavy items into smaller book/wine cartons, i.e. books, wine and tinned food
  • Pack cartons to the top or pad with paper to the top, but do not over fill
  • Mark the carton on the side with your name, room and a brief description of goods for easy placement at delivery
