Packing is an essential element for a successful removal. Unfortunately some people overlook the importance of packing and this can lead to some problems.

When it comes to packaging Australia, there is a decision that needs to be made; will you pack your personal effects yourself or will you pay to have a packing or ask a removal company to pack your things for you?

The easiest way is of course to have your goods packed by a removal company, meaning you don’t have to worry about providing materials or labour for what can be an arduous and time consuming task.

This service is called a pre-pack or packaging and here at Australia Interstate Relocations Group we are happy to quote you on this service.

Alternatively, many people prefer to pack their personal effects themselves, this allows them to pack gradually and minimize the cost of their removal.

If this is your preferred method then there are some simple guidelines to follow that will minimize the risk of damage to goods you have personally packed.
