Here’s Everything You Need To Know About Moving Boxes

When making a home move, there is a chance that you’d have a hard time fitting all your stuff into boxes, to get them ready for moving into the van. But then, there are some tricks you can use to the stress attached involved in this process, and in this article, we’d be sharing some of those tricks with you.

First of all, you need to estimate the number of boxes you need to pack your stuff. It may be a bit difficult to figure out the exact number of the boxes you need, but at least have an estimate of the number and size of the boxes that’d fit in your items.

Getting the sizes you’d need could be quite tricky. Pro tip: Use the square meter measurement of your home to determine the size of the boxes you’d need. Alternatively, you can seek help from someone who is experienced in home move to help you figure the right size of boxes.

Arrange stuff for different Boxes by size

Now, that you have gotten the kind of boxes you need to pack your stuff in, sort your stuff size by size and pack them in. You need first to sort all your stuff size by size and place them in different areas of the house. After doing this, pack larger items into the large boxes before you move on to pack the smaller stuff the smaller boxes. By doing this, you’d be able to pack your heavy stuff that can expend your energy first, and then packing the light ones won’t be very difficult.

However, do not pack the breakable items before the day of the home move.

Hire an Experienced Hand to help in the Packing

Finally, making a home move is stressful and takes a daunting process of packing. If you do not have the expertise you need to pack the boxes, you’d have a tough time packing the boxes. You need to hire someone who is experienced in packing, preferably someone who has a moving van, so you can combine the cost of both packing and moving.

Getting an affordable and reliable moving company can be an arduous process. Hence, you’d need to do extensive research and compare the cost and service of different movers. The good news is that Wisemove makes this process very simple.

They helped us with a house move from Hamilton to Christchurch. On the day of the move the truck arrived well on time and everything was loaded and good to go in pretty much one hour! Matt was a great help and really friendly to deal with. As agreed on, the truck arrived two days later in Christchurch and unloading was done quick and efficiently! Just remember that, as reflected on their price, you can’t expect everything to come out without any scratch if you don't wrap it yourself. We made sure everything was good to go on the day of move and wrapped our more valuable stuff in bubble wrap, plastic wrap or in sturdy boxes. That worked great for us and made their job a lot easier I imagine.

Epic packing! Strong, fast movers and so polite and sweet. Only 2 items with tiny damage. But muddy crap conditions and I'm insured excess so not worth it, as I say nominal. For the price chur chur!!! I feel blessed that's all that happened to be honest! Paid for 3 both ways, 3 showed for pickup, 2 for delivery, don't refund, just buy the two a box. I thought delivery 3 hours?? Maybe?? Done in 1.5. So pleased. Thank you team, thank you, thank you. Moving from Whangarei Heads to Orks is hell stressful, your people did the job above my expectations and I am very very grateful. Highly recommend!!

Pawan and his team were excellent! We moved across the country, and despite this long distance we miraculously had no breakage of delicate kitchen items, and only a few minor scuffs and scrapes (to be expected) on a few tricky furniture items. They were great with communication, and arrived promptly with a load in and load out well faster than we expected. They were also very understanding and helpful when we had a lot more gear than we’d initially planned, with very reasonable pricing given we had to take extra space, and also scheduling flexibly for us so that we could be there at both ends of the trip. Payment was easy - they just gave us the bank details after the move was complete and were very easy to work with. Super lovely guys too - very friendly and reassuring which is exactly what you want on a high pressured and stressful moving day. Overall would highly recommend and will definitely be giving them a call again next time we have gear to move. Can’t thank them enough!
