If you’re moving house and have been thinking about services such as removals in Chester, you may have also considered packing everything yourself. This may seem like a scary idea, however, the most important thing is that you use the right materials. Many people will flock to eBay and try to get the cheapest boxes available and not think about the quality and longevity of the materials. This may seem like a good idea at the time, but when it comes to your belongings, they need to be transported both safely and securely to avoid any breakages.

Here are some of the things you should consider when moving house:


This is an obvious essential, however, it is vital that you invest in good boxes from a reputable company. If you have found a removals company, they may also sell packaging materials which is handy as they will be using the best of the best in terms of quality. Boxes bought online can often be flimsy and on the move, you may find many of your items damaged due to poor materials. Buying quality boxes is definitely worth it and you can even sell them on once you’re finished with them or store them for future use.


Another obvious pick but again, you need to ensure this is a good quality product. Have you ever purchased cheap tape that seems to have no stickiness to it whatsoever? This is often the case and for heavy boxes, you need a tape that is tactile and does the job. Your removal company will know the best brands so again, get in touch to find out if they offer a reselling service.

Black Marker

Picture this; you move into your new home, everything is off the lorry and you have a sea of brown, unmarked boxes in front of you. Not the most ideal situation. Having a black marker on hand at all times during the packaging stages means you can mark what’s inside the boxes and what room it needs to be put in – this also helps the removals company organise your belongings accordingly.

Moving house can definitely seem like a stressful and unachievable task, however, little steps like working with your removals company for packaging supplies can ease up your task list and help you avoid any damages and problems down the line.
