Before And When The Removals Company Comes In

A few weeks before, you were able to sign a contract with a moving firm for international removals to Australia. Now, all you need to do is just wait for the truck to arrive. However, have you prepared your belongings for loading? Have you labeled them? Readying your items for loading is one of the most important elements of moving. Done correctly, the preparation can save a lot of time, money, and effort for both you and the movers.

Here are several helpful tips on how to prepare your stuff for loading.

1. Disassemble modular furniture such as bed frames, sofas, and chairs. Pack the parts together and label them. This way, you save a lot of space and weight as you load them into the truck.

2. Utilize furniture padding to protect the corners and surfaces of wooden furniture from damage. You can choose to rent padding from the moving company or buy your own at a home-improvement store. Additionally, padding makes it easy for you to slide heavy objects into the truck.

3. Load the largest and heaviest items first such as the gas range, refrigerator, washing machine, and closet---usually any item that takes two or more people to move. Ensure that they are placed at the far wall closest to the cab and in their upright position. Ensure too that the truck is balanced by placing equally heavy objects on the left and right sides of the vehicle.

4. Load long items such as mattresses, long mirrors, sofas, headboards, and tabletops thereafter. Position these items against the longest wall; this placement allows you to save space and keeps the items upright.

5. Next, place the largest and heaviest boxes at the middle. Boxes with appliances inside them should be placed at the top of heavier boxes to avoid damaging the items inside. Work your way down to the lightest boxes.

6. Finally, load fragile items or irregularly shaped items.
