10 Essential Packing tips

  1. Start  early. Packing a hour can be difficult to estimate if your inexperienced.  If you are Packing two boxes a day you can expect to pack a large house in 2 months.  For smaller homes, one month should be just fine. Of course, this is not an exact number, but you get the idea. A good estimate is 10 boxes per room and 10 extra.
  2. Start with rooms you least need. Try and pack what you rarely use. Seasonal items you don’t expect to use for a while such as garden tools, coats and Christmas lights are perfect examples. Stacking boxes can disturb your household, its good to stack them out of the way.
  3. Pack one room at a time. This is a very handy tip which often goes unheeded. Doing this will help keep you stay organised and will later tell the movers, or anyone unloading, which box goes where.
  4. Declutter. Hold a boot sale or give your old unwanted items to charity. Ebay can also be useful, so your options are numerous. You can also ask friends whether they need anything you’re planning to sell. After all they way be more willing to help with your move!
  5. Do not exceed the limit of 15 Kilos for a box. You might hurt yourself or one of the boxes might break under the weight. Pack lighter items in larger boxes and heavy items is smaller boxes. This packing tip alone cam save you a great deal of pain… literally.
  6. Fill empty gaps. Use packing paper, newspaper, or just old rags to fill gaps in the boxes. This should secure the items for your move.
  7. Label your boxes. Write the contents of each box somewhere clearly visible with a marker. Write on the sides of the boxes and not on top, as this will make it easier to recognise them if they’re are stacked.Different colour markers for different rooms help. Children often like to help with this task. If you have breakables on the top of your box label it with D.N.S meaning DO NOT STACK
  8. Heavier boxes are stacked first. Although common sense its good to know before you start to avoid re-stacking. By putting your heavy boxes underneath the lighter boxes, you ensure no delicate items will get crushed during the move.
  9. Dispose of hazardous materials. We are unable to carry oil, fuel, open paint or explosives. Always plan to get rid of these in advance to avoid stress on moveday.
  10. Pack a bag of essentials. Phone chargers, snacks, medication are all often forgotten and can cause distress, especially on moveday =]

Our Reviews

5/5

I would highly recommend this removal company to everyone. The removal men arrived exactly on time and were friendly, pleasant and polite during the whole move. I don’t think I could have asked for a better removal experience.

5/5

Moved under difficult circumstances and with very poor service from conveyancers meaning we exchanged on the day of the move. GoPanda were very understanding and accommodating even when I was unable to confirm anything. Throughout the move everyone worked like a Trojan and completed the move successfully. I contacted other companies with this job, some of whom were quick to suggest I would be gambling on GoPanda. It was a gamble well worth taking and my experience would suggest competitors’ allegations were without foundation. I would definitely use GoPanda again (though I have no intention of moving) and recommend to others.

5/5

Go Panda gave us a competitive quote and then completed the move ahead of schedule and with great respect for our belongings. Andrew and his team were efficient, courteous and went above and beyond their contracted duties. I would not hesitate in recommending them highly.

The first time we’ve used this company, and we’ve moved around a bit! They were brilliant, friendly, calm and efficient. It felt like they really cared about our stuff and their assembly service was great. I’d recommend them to family and friends. They made a potentially stressful day fun!

5/5

Having used Go Panda for moving house three times now, and about to use them for the fourth time, I thought it was high time I left a review, considering how brilliant the service has been every time.

Go Panda’s team are all so friendly and helpful, and they’ve always quoted me accurately and given brilliant prices and, most importantly, a great service.

The utmost care and attention is given to your valuable items and they’re completely flexible and accommodating when it comes to loading, transporting and unloading your belongings.

I never thought such a brilliant removal service was possible until I discovered Go Panda. Thank you again.

Couldn’t rate them any higher. Great experience moving with the Go Panda Boys. Thanks a million. Claude. of the Removals companies in Cardiff we have used, Go Paada were the best
