When packing boxes remember to pack heavy items in such as books into smaller boxes so it's more manageable to move when unpacking.
Remember to ensure that all fridges and freezers have been emptied and wiped out and left with the door open for around 2 hours before, the removalist arrives that way when the appliance is relocated you don't have the musty smell in your fridge or freezer.
Your boxes so you can know by looking at them what room they go in. all you need is a few paint pens and a big X on the side of the box, that way by just looking at it you can direct the removalist on which room to place the box without having to read what written on the top of it.
Add a small contents list to the top of each book so you can find the essential thing easy when you first move and don't have to search through dozens of boxes to find what you need.
