Move Preparation

Not using the-the proper packing materials and techniques can mean your boxes will be delivered flat. AAA City Removalists provides our customers with free moving boxes, asking our customers to please keep them in good hands.

Boxing and Sealing

There is an art to making up and taping a box. Boxes should be taped using two lengths of tape. Tape first through the middle of the box and across the seam. Properly taping boxes provides the sturdiness that boxes require. Next, tape along the seam and the top of the box. With a marker write across the tape the room the box belongs to and a brief description of the contents. If fragile items are within, be sure to mark “FRAGILE” on the tape.

The Right Box

Heavy items should be packed in smaller boxes, as well as delicate and fragile items and small pictures. Pack books flat on their edges with the book opening facing up. Pack cassettes and DVDs on their edge. Seal bottle tops tightly and packs straight.

Household items like pots and pans, pictures, food, clothing, etc. are most often best packed in medium boxes. Plates should be packed on their edges, never flat. Pack in batches of three to four on the bottom of the box. Cushion with paper between the plates. Fill the remainder of the box with lighter items like towels, stuffed animals, etc.Large boxes are ideal for linens, bedding, clothing, games, etc. Anything light.

Empty Boxes

When emptying the boxes, cut open the tape. Once all items are removed, flatten the box by cutting through the tape with a knife or scissors. Once boxes are flattened, contact AAA City Removalists to provide you with the service of collecting the boxes for a small charge.

Hanging Clothes

AAA City Removalists provides porta robes that are designed to hang clothes, relieving you of tedious hours of ironing from wrinkles that often occur during a move.
