Speak with your mover ahead of the removal day and discuss how much you have that will need moving and where you are moving too.

Start Packing Early
If you are opting to pack your home up yourself. You should start doing this as early as you can.
Start packing once you know that you’ll be moving. Begin by packing up anything that you won’t need until after the move.
Work methodically. Make sure that as you fill the boxes up, you consider where everything will go in your new home. If you can pack items that belong together, it will make it easier to unpack.
Label your boxes as you go. This will help you put your boxes in the right place in your new home.
Think about the weight of each box. Don’t overload them or it may cause an injury when they are being carried.
If you’re packing fragile items, use bubble wrap, or old newspapers to help protect the items. Be sure that you clearly write ‘fragile’ on the box.
