Moving Guidelines

Open Boxes:

  • Please close and seal all of your boxes, boxes left open with items protruding are awkward and can be dangerous.
  • If an item will not fit in a box please do not try to squeeze it in, bubble wrap it separately.

Don't over fill your boxes:

  • Please do not over fill your boxes, remember that they have to be carried in a safe manner.

Don't under fill your boxes:

  • Please do not under fill your boxes either; this may cause the boxes to collapse if heavy items are put on top.
  • Try to distribute your items evenly throughout your boxes.
  • If possible try to use suitcases, rucksacks and other items of luggage to pack clothes etc, these are preferable to black plastic bags which are often over filled and tear easily.
  • If you do have to use bin bags try to use top quality bags.
