Choice of packaging materials.

The first thing you should stock up on before moving is, of course, packing materials. Poor quality or unsuitable characteristics of the packaging will negate all your further efforts and will not ensure the protection of things. We have repeatedly written about what should be the optimal packing at the move. You can read more about the different types, pros or cons of packaging, as well as where you can buy it, in this article, for example.

Let’s briefly summarize:
  • The most versatile type of packaging is specialized moving boxes made of thick multi-layered corrugated cardboard, with detailed fields for marking.
  • An important point – provide materials for different things. In addition to standard boxes of various sizes and adhesive tape, stretch film, wardrobe boxes for transporting clothes on a coat hanger, air bubble wrap, protective profiles, or “corners” may be required.
  • Some types of containers are not suitable for packing things when moving. These include, for example, bags, and plastic bags.
  • If you find it difficult to calculate the amount of packaging, a convenient online calculator will come in handy. Another option is to ask for help from the manager of our company. He will figure out what things will need to be packed, quickly help you make the right calculation, and prepare for the move.


It is not enough to properly pack and pack things. Marking will help to make the process of unpacking things in a new house as easy as possible.

  • If there are no special fields for marking on the boxes you have purchased, then do not be too lazy to put marks yourself. The more detailed you sign the box, the more convenient it will be to find the necessary thing. Indicate the room/room from which these things were collected; a piece of furniture (things from a chest of drawers, closet, or nightstand, for example), the type of things (clothes, dishes, documents), and to which family member they belong.
  • Additionally, for clarity, you can use different colors of tape or markers, assigning each room its color. So even with a cursory glance at the box, it will be clear – things from which room are packed into it.
  • Correctly mark packages with fragile, breakable items, use the inscription “glass” or special icons (glass or exclamation mark).
  • All boxes before moving must be signed from several sides.

How to prepare furniture for transportation.

  • Cabinets or racks that will not pass in height into an elevator or car should be disassembled before transportation. Be sure to label all the elements, mark the top and bottom. And securely attach a tight bag with small fittings directly to the furniture. So for sure, nothing will be lost, not mixed up. And in the new apartment, there will be no problems assembling the furniture correctly and as quickly as possible. After disassembly, wrap the individual parts with stretch film, the corners can be protected with cardboard or several layers of bubble wrap.
  • Chairs, cabinets, coffee tables, and other medium-sized pieces of furniture in preparation for the move can not be disassembled. It is enough to unscrew the legs, handles and other protruding elements, if any. Put all the details side by side so as not to lose them on the move. Then just wrap it with several layers of film.
  • The film will help protect upholstered furniture from moisture or dust. Additional protection for corners, individual parts, or legs – cardboard, special “corners” or several layers of bubble wrap.
  • For dismantling, packing, and preparing for moving built-in furniture or furniture with a complex structure, it is best to invite professionals.
