Packing Tips / How to pack?

At the time of relocation, packing of goods is of great importance. Proper packing of goods is very vital for the safety and security of unaccompanied baggage or household goods while transportation. Using the right packing material and technique makes a lot of difference as the right way leads to the successful delivery of your goods otherwise goods may arrive in pieces. Here are some packing tips from our years of experience while serving this industry, which can be used during the packing of your household items for international relocation.

By following these tips you can save money and it also assures you that your goods will arrive safely and undamaged to its destination.

  1. Choose right cardboard boxes for your household goods. The boxes should be chemically hardened, durable and suitable for international air or sea shipping of your personal belongings. In transit, boxes are stacked in several layers therefore they must be strong enough to support their own weight and the weight of other boxes being stacked on top of them. We also provide two kinds of packing boxes that are highly durable and long lasting in nature. The large packing carton we provide is the ‘Moving Box carton’ it’s dimensions are Length 50 cm, Width 45 cm, Height 60 cm (Useful for packing bulky but light items such as apparels, shoes, linen & sports equipment). The standard packing carton is a ‘Book Box carton’ it’s dimensions are: Length 40 cmWidth 35 cmHeight 50 cm (Useful for packing heavy items such as photo albums, CD’s & DVD’s, books, files & folders, & hand tools, etc.)
  2. You should try to use most of boxes of the same dimensions, so that they can be easily stacked uniformly. Boxes of different sizes wastes space and make it prone to collapse easily onto other boxes. Falling boxes could cause injury and potentially damage the contents of the boxes.
  3. Boxes which are thin, damaged, worn or damp, especially used boxes available at supermarket should never be used for packing as those boxes are usually not very strong. Using supermarket boxes may seem like a saving but they don’t stack well and often collapse. Moreover, sometimes airlines/shipping lines or insurance companies may refuse to pay you the compensations for any loss or damage caused to your goods; especially if they found that the loss or damage is caused due to insufficient packing material.
  4. Apart from the security of the household goods being exported, it is very essential that they should be packed in such a way that the goods are clearly and correctly marked and they can be easily inspected if required when being examined by customs, both on export and import.
  5. People always look for ways to save their money while relocation. The best possible way is to move less stuff – that is obvious. The other economical way is to do the packing yourself. If you can manage to do a part of packing yourself, then you can also hire partial packing service. This means, professional packers will only provide service for prescribed items, such as large furniture, art, fragile items, lamps and similar goods. You can save money and cut moving costs if you do the majority of packing & packaging yourself. Pack yourself non-breakable items like beddings, books, garments, shoes, etc. But do not try to pack yourself fine chinaware, Kitchen dishes and other fragile items because such items should be packed by professionals in a better manner. Furniture, mattresses, electronic & electric items, and heavy appliances should also be packed by a professional packer.
  6. Each box should be light enough for one person to lift. If it is too heavy, then it may require two or more persons or a forklift to uplift and you have to pay additional cost in terms of handling & pickup charges at either end of the shipment. To avoid this, we suggest you that a single box should not exceed a weight of 32 kilograms / 71 pounds.
  7. Try to distribute weight evenly amongst boxes. Place heavier items in the bottom of the box and lighter items on top. Don’t put all of your books in the same box. Mix books and other heavy items with lighter items such as bedding.
  8. Original packing boxes, if kept, should be used to pack televisions, refrigerator, computers and other electronics items because they are of the correct size and the original packing materials will help to ensure the safety of the contents. These original boxes are already stuffed with shock absorbing materials which keep the content intact and safe during transit.
  9. Do mark the box as “fragile” on the top so that we can stick “FRAGILE” labels on boxes with breakable items and thus the mover can easily recognize the boxes that have to be handled with care.
  10. Fragile items can be packed by using towels, blankets and clothes. In this way your clothes will get packed at the same time, it will ensure the safety of the fragile items. This will also be a cost cutting on the items like bubble wrap, newspapers and other items which are otherwise used to provide safety.
  11. We strongly support self-packing because during packing process you get an opportunity to select only those things that you intend to use in your second home. In other words self-packing helps in picking only those things that is worth transporting long distance.
  12. While packing, use pillows, towels, blankets and other clothing’s as padding inside the boxes to save on bubble wrap. Bubble wrap should be used only to pack fragile/breakable items and make sure that each & every household item should not be packed with the bubble wrap otherwise the volume/chargeable weight of your shipment will increase by 25 to 30%.
  13. All Electronics and fragile or breakable items must be packed in wooden crates (A slatted wooden case made according to the size of your goods). Crating helps to avoid any sort of damage, theft or pilferage, etc. of the goods and ensures easy handling during transit. Though crating provides extra convenience while transit, it costs you additional charges and as the consequences of the wooden crates, the volume will increase by approx. 25% than the actual size of the goods itself. Secondly it can be moved only by using two or more men or by a fork-lift / hand-lift which may also attract additional cost at either end of the shipment. You may consider using wooden pallets (A platform, on which goods can be stored, stacked and moved easily with the aid of a forklift.) instead of crates which would be cost effective.
  14. Make sure that items inside the boxes are stuffed properly and they cannot move around easily. Use crumbled newspapers, blankets or towels to fill the empty spaces inside the boxes so that the items are not bouncing around.
  15. If your consignment contains toys, machine or tools, garden furniture, camping or sports equipment’s, wooden souvenirs, shoes/boots, saddlery, groceries, ethnic ornaments or candles and especially Xmas decoration items than please make sure that any of those items that have been in contact with soil, food, animals, plants or their products are thoroughly cleaned and free from any kind of contamination especially of insects or evidence of insect activity.
