Packing

Purchase Boxes

The easiest way to transfer items, valuables and more is by using cardboard boxes. There are many ways to go about this, from using boxes that you may have saved from the past to ask a family member or friend if they have any available. 

Or you can purchase boxes from a local packaging company. We recommend this option to allow you to select from a wide range of sizes, types and more.

Able Packaging is a South Australian box and packaging business located in Mount Barker and Mile End. They have a diverse selection of boxes for all your valuables, cutlery, toys, and so much more. It’s guaranteed they will have the boxes you require for your next move.

Wrap Fragile Items

It’s common sense that it comes to fragile items such as plates, vases, any item with glass that you use additional protection. Prior to placing such fragile items into a box, there are several methods you can use to secure your valuables safely. 

The easiest method is to use old clothing and rags; the beauty of using this option is not only will the clothing protect your valuables from being scratched. But they can also squeeze into those awkward positions, ensuring your fragile items are tightly secured before closing the box.

Another option is using bubble wrap. Bubble wrap is very much a shield agent designed to protect your valuables at all costs. They are commonly used by businesses when shipping fragile goods to their consumers. You purchase bubble wrap at an affordable price with Adelaide Warehouse Supplies in Ferrydon Park.

Colour Coding

To make the transition to your new home, there are many ways you can make the move easier. An example of this is labelling the boxes about a particular room in your house, an example being the kitchen or perhaps the kids’ bedroom. 

You can even take this one step further by colour coding the labels using a variety of high visibility fluorescent colours. This will make it simpler once the boxes have been offloaded into your home. 

Hire a Removalist

Moving can be a tedious, drawn-out process with several trips to and from your new house. A simple solution is to hire a local removal company. The removalists can take care of the entire moving process, removing the stress of moving furniture and other heavy items that can cause serious injury if it isn’t handled correctly.

At Right-Way Relocations, we’re an affordable and efficient removalist business located in Adelaide. We will take your entire moving process from securely packing heavy and fragile items into our truck and delivering them safely to your new home or business location. Contact us for your next move. 

Dump The Clutter

Moving to your new location can be rather messy, and you may find yourself with an excess amount of rubbish. Depending on the amount of clutter, we can recommend two ways to declutter before officially moving.

If you find yourself with a small number of items you don’t use, use a box to compile these goods and label them clearly. You can donate these to a local charity like St. Vincent de Paul’s. Vinnies have been helping in need Australians with clothing, food and other vital amenities since 1854.

The other alternative is to rent a skip. This is quite useful if you have large bulky, not for purpose items.  

Organise a Place For Your Fluffy Friends

We all love our fluffy friends. However, it can be not easy when our best buddies are seeking attention or are in the way of a move. The best way to ensure your cat, dog or other animal is safe during the moving process is to ask a family member or a friend to look after them. This will ensure a smooth transition for you will moving and ensuring your favourite is taken care of.
