Many people make the mistake of underestimating the process which leads to various unwanted situations such as broken, fallen or damaged items. Here are some tricks that you can use to pack your stuff and which will insure a safe delivery to your new location.

Packing blankets are thick cotton blankets which are ideal when you wish to create a soft protection cushion inside your moving boxes. Also many people use packing blankets to cover their furnishings during the transportation, this will prevent any damages from occurring if the furniture bangs into one another during the delivery.  Packing blankets are mostly used for covering glassware, mirrors and glass furniture as the soft blanket can protect the glass from any kind of impact. You can get packing blankets from any man and van North London based moving company, local supermarket or hardware store.

Other efficient packing tools are carton boxes which can carry heavy loads. However it is for the best if you avoid filling the boxes at maximum. Always leave a free amount of space so that the load doesn’t get to heavy. It is better to use more boxes than to fill the boxes and they end up ripping from the bottom. Also to prevent any bottom ripping make sure to pick up and carry the carton boxes from the bottom. While lifting the boxes, emphasis the weight on your legs, this will facilitate the lift up and won’t tire out your back. You can get carton boxes from any store or man and van London based company.
