Packing Tips For Moving To A New House

Moving to a new house is always a pain, and a day of hectically packing boxes into a van only to unpack them again is nobody’s idea of a relaxing time off work. You want to make sure you are as efficient as possible so that the day you decide to move goes smoothly and without stress. We have a few tips on packing, to keep the stress as minimal as possible and to ensure the day goes a lot quicker for you!

First, try to keep things in drawers as much as possible. Clothes and other similar fabric items should be kept in drawers as much as possible to save time and space. It doesn’t make any sense unpacking clothes out of drawers to put them back in once you get to your new home. However, any jewellery or fragile items should be taken out of drawers and packed up properly so that they are kept safe and not damaged.

You need to de-clutter your house as much as possible, such as the pan set you haven’t used for four years, there is a reason you haven’t used them in years and most likely won’t again- therefore bin it. The kitchen is the most time consuming to pack and unpack; therefore, you need to be sensible with what you take to your new home. Old tins, utensils and crockery should be thrown, to keep more room in the van for other products.

If you have children, a major declutter of their room is needed before even starting to pack. Children in particular have a tendency to hoard unimportant toys and games as they don’t want to throw them away. Have a massive clean out through their room, anything not used in a while or old take to the charity shop, as they will be muchly appreciated there.

TOP TIP: do this process without your child being around to prevent tears and tantrums!

A flat-packed box is a perfect way to protect your painting, sellotaping the ends they will prevent any damage. If they are extra important consider using extra cushioning around the sleeve.

DIY Move vs Hiring Movers

Not only is moving house time consuming, stressful and difficult, it is also a costly affair. For example, you will have to pay a deposit upfront for your new rental or mortgage whilst still affording your current home, you have to shell out for a removal van, you have to purchase some rather durable boxes to move your items in and it is likely you will end up taking the day off work to complete the task. With all this said, it’s understandable why some people decide to skip the professionals and complete a move themselves. Here at Jacksons Removals, we’re going to tell you a few things to consider before you begin your move…


A removals time length is very dependent on certain circumstances and no figure can ever be guaranteed. If you are looking for a speedy removal, the professionals are the best option. They know what they are doing, how to pack and how to move things efficiently. If you have a lot of time to spare, you could try to complete the removal yourself however this will be tedious because you won’t have the previous knowledge the movers do.


Some items cannot be transported inside a car, such as bedframes, mattresses and wardrobes which means that you will end up having to hire a van to complete your removal, making the movers the best choice. On the other hand, if you don’t own many bulky items, a removal can be completed in small stages by packing up your car multiple times.

Now you know some of the pros and cons of both situations it’s time to start organising your home move. Even if you decide to opt for the DIY route, it’s always wise to get some quotes from removal companies so get in contact with the best removals in Wirral to find out more information today!

Top Packing Tips for Moving House

Relocating and moving house is a process that many of us tend to dread. It consists of contacting all the different companies you have a contract with, changing your address, cleaning your current home and contacting a removal company. And this is all on top of having to pack up all of your belongings. Here at Jacksons Removals, we’ve got you covered. Here are our top tips for packing…

  • To ensure that you are properly prepared to start the process of packing, ensure you have the following basic supplies; small, medium and large boxes, tape, bubble wrap, old newspapers, markers and labels.
  • It will be much less stressful if you begin the packing process well in advance of your moving date so that you can complete the move without the stress looming that you still have to pack some belongings.
  • Start packing the belongings that you know you will not need over the next following weeks so that you can gradually complete the process. Pack away seasonal items such as winter coats if it is summer and Christmas decorations if it its mid-July as you will not need these before your removal date.
  • When we move house, we tend to realise how much junk we have accumulated over the years that we don’t need. Take this as an opportunity to declutter your home and donate some unwanted belongings to charity.
