What's the best way to pack?
You will probably always come across this very important tip each time you read an article on packaging and moving. This is because of the importance of this advice. You need to start planning, sorting and boxing items well in advance, unless you will be hiring a removals service to handle that for you. If you are doing the packing yourself, you can save yourself a whole lot of stress by starting early.
When is the best time to start packing?
We would recommend starting to pack 28 days before the day of your move; not the day before your move! To make things move smoothly and quickly you will need to stock up on the right supplies. These include getting lots of boxes, paper stickers, packing foam, binding tape and even rubber bands. Having these supplies handy will make your job easier.

Tips on packing your computer!
If you will be handling the boxing and packaging of your household items yourself, you will need to have it all done before the movers arrive. This also includes packing and boxing major appliances like your plasma TV, computers and the likes. You need to take time to package these items properly so that you don't run into the problem of looking for more boxes. As a tip, it helps to pack all parts of an appliance together. So your computer system complete with keyboard, mouse and extension cords should be packed together. You may also need to label wires and connections to be able to easily fix it all back together without professional help when you arrive at the new location.
How to pack your fragile items?
Take care with your mirrors, pictures and frames so as not to scratch the surface or chip the corners. Wrap them up properly and do not pack them along with items that can break or scratch them. Same care should be applied when packaging plates, china and flatware; if in doubt leave it to the professionals!
