If you have moved house before, then you will be well aware of how stressful a time it can be with regards to packing and moving all of your possessions.

For the big items, the sensible option is to hire the services of a professional firm just like us here at O'Grady's Transport && ;Removals, but even with our help, there is still so much to do before you can sit back and rest easy!

We can handle all of the big-ticket items for you, but you still have to come up with ways to sort out the rest of your household. To help you out in this process, here are some great tips for packing when you have engaged a removalist in Ballina.

How to pack for a removalist


  • START EARLY! We cannot stress this point enough. Think about how much time you are going to need for each room, and then double it. Packing always take longer than you expect, and the last thing that you need is to be racing against the clock when packing valuable and important things.

  • It’s always a good idea to start at the top of the house and work your way down from there. The top floors take the most energy, so you don’t want to have to face climbing up to the attic when you are already absolutely exhausted from tackling the ground floor.

  • Remember to pack heavy items in smaller boxes. This means that you won’t be tempted to keep adding items to those boxes, therefore making them potentially too heavy to carry when the time comes.

  • Limit yourself to packing one room at a time. It helps to give you a clear vision of your progress, as well as ensuring that you don’t skip something in a room and forget it.

  • Try to keep all of the boxes from one room together in transit. Label boxes accordingly. This will make it much easier to get things out and unpack them on the other end of the journey.
