Many people only know of one method for moving their clothing and it involves trying to force as much as you can into a large suitcase and hoping for the best. We’re here to tell you a new method that was introduced to the internet by a student’s father in early 2017.  Simply hang your clothing on hangers then slide a rubbish bag around 10-20, tying it at the top. Now you can carrying the hangers!


There are many items in a household that can be broken during a house move. From plates to delicate perfume bottles, the last thing you want to do is spend time organising the items for them to suffer at the hands of careless removers. Luckily, the Jackson’s team handle every box with care! In order to further protect your items, use old newspaper or bubble wrap in order to pad them.


The majority of items will be packed into boxes however once it comes to unloading that van the removal company will need to know where each item is going. There are two ways you can do this: get colour coded boxes for each room, or write the name of the room that each box should be placed in on a regular cardboard box. It depends how adventurous you would like to be however the second one is cheaper and more simpler.
