Consignments of any size from single items to full flat, house and office removals considered.
It’s a highly complex process requiring prudence, planning and patience in abundance, yet very few people give it the attention it requires. Independent lifestyle journalist Ellin Stein breaks open the packing boxes and delves into the back of the wardrobe to bring the definitive guide to moving home.
Given that most of us will do anything rather than give a wardrobe a good clean out-, packing up an entire house or flat can often seem an impossibly daunting task. The trick is breaking it down into a series of small components and proceeding methodically.
Packing – the master plan
In general, removal firms charge by the hour so the more you can pack up yourself, the more you’ll save. On the other hand, the time and care involved in packing granny’s valuable china and glassware yourself may prove to be a false economy.
About a month before your move, start gathering packing materials such as boxes, packing tape, scissors, thick marking pen, and bubble wrap. Supermarkets are one source of free boxes, while storage companies usually sell a selection of different sizes.
Take it room by room and divide everything into Keep, Maybe, and Discard piles. Further subdivide the Discard pile into charity shop and rubbish tip and put into garden waste bags accordingly. The Maybe pile will take the longest, but if worse comes to worst, you can stick your Maybe things into storage and reconsider after you’ve moved in.
Start with personal memorabilia, because while you won’t get absorbed in packing sheets, old love letters or family photos might occupy you for hours. Put important documents, such as passports, insurance contracts, or any papers connected with the move itself into a separate folder and carry rather than pack it.
There should be no more than 25kg in any one box, so keep book boxes small. Plates and flat china should be wrapped individually in newspaper or, better still, in unprinted newspaper paper (called newsprint). Crumpled newspaper can be used for cushioning between layers or to fill in gaps. Always wrap glassware and crystal individually. Mirrors, glass tabletops and paintings should be individually packed in special cartons and can benefit from professional handling, especially if heavy. It’s a good idea to leave antiques, fine art, chandeliers, and pianos to the experts.
Have draperies and curtains cleaned then packed in their wrappings. Foldable clothing can be left in dressers or put in suitcases, while hanging clothes go in special wardrobe cartons. Lamps should be packed after shades, bulbs, and harps have been removed. Audio-visual equipment should ideally be packed in their original boxes after cables have been disconnected. Major appliances require servicing, disconnecting and preparation. Refrigerators, for example, need to be defrosted and emptied before transport.
As you pack each box, give each one a letter or number, briefly describe the contents, and note the room it’s headed for. You might also want to employ coloured stickers to further identify the destination, plus red stickers for boxes that need to be unpacked first or for boxes containing breakables (but be sure to write Fragile on the sides anyway). Finally, pack a suitcase with any personal items you might need for the next couple of days, along with a survival box containing things such as screwdrivers, Stanley knife, light bulbs, loo paper, and address book.
Beginning a month ahead, start getting estimates from removal companies. It will save heartache and confusion if you give them as accurate a picture as you can of how much needs to be moved and if there are any special requirements, such as furniture that needs to go through a window instead of a door. Clarify any possible areas of dispute, such as who is going to dismantle beds or un-plumb the washing machine.
The best source of removal companies is personal recommendation, but you can also use the British Association of Removers at www.bar.co.uk. As well as an estimate, be sure to get details of the company’s insurance arrangements. Fridays are the busiest days for moving companies so you may be able to get a better price midweek.
The more organized you are in advance, the happier your movers will be and the faster the move will go. Find out what time the van will arrive and what the estimated completion time is. Ensure that you’ve arranged parking access at both ends and parking permits if needed. Keep a couple of spare unpacked boxes in case you’ve made any boxes too heavy and things need to be shifted. And don’t forget to have a map and/or directions to the new house on hand.
One of the most important things you can do before anything goes anywhere is to make an inspection tour of your furniture with your movers, noting any pre-existing dents and scratches. Think of yourself as the car rental firm and the movers as the customers. You might want to take ‘before’ photos of any particularly valuable furniture, just in case.
The last thing you should pack up is the kettle, tea, coffee, biscuits, milk, etc. Your movers will thank you. And the first thing you should unpack is a Yellow Pages for your new residence – you’re bound to need either an emergency plumber, electrician, or at the very least, a takeaway.
