Pre packing

At Sydney City Removalists we offer a complete end to end pre packing service, however, should you wish to pre pack yourself, here are a few tips.

1. Removal Boxes – Always use industry standard boxes to save you time and money. Sydney City Removalists provides a limited number of quality boxes for your move free of charge. Call now to find out more about our amazing free box offer.

2. Heavy items including books, wine and kitchen utensils should always be packed in “crystal” removal boxes allowing a safe and efficient move. When packing a box, makeu sure there is no air gap at the top prior to sealing, you can fill the space with paper or linen to save money.

3. All other items should be packed in “tea chest” removal boxes. Ie linen, clothes, manchester, lamps and other light items.

4. Avoid using free boxes from a shop or fruit boxes. Firstly they take longer to pack and most importantly slow the team down when loading the removalist vehicle.

5. Always seal the removal box so it has a flat top. If the removal box is the shape of a triangle, it will be harder to pack in the removal truck and will take longer to pack.

6. Use fresh butchers paper to pack all of your glassware and be sure to avoid any friction in the removal box by separating plates with a piece of butcher paper. You can use newspaper however, be prepared to wash your plates to avoid ink!

7. When packing plates always use clean butchers paper and stack them perpindicular to the bottom of the removalist box, as plates are stronger when moving perpendicular to the up/down movement of the vehicle.

8. Label each removal box with the contents and destination room to allow the removals team to place your household goods in the correct room at your new home.

The team from Sydney City Removalists made the move an absolute delight. I have moved many times before and have never had such a polite and helpful team assist me with the removals. Tom and his boys arrived on time, they even rang to see if I wanted them to come any earlier, and got to work straight away. They took great care with all my belongings, and even packed those odd items that I hadn’t had the chance to organise. They were fantastic, polite and friendly. They made what is usually considered a nightmare so easy. I will be using Sydney City Removalists for any future needs and have already recommended them to friends and family.
