These Things Will Be Lifesavers When It Comes To Moving Home

September 18, 2019 | By |

Moving house can be stressful, but the more you prepare and the more professional help you have, the less stressful your house move will be.

Here at DS Movements we have many years of experience helping people move home. We are a removals company in Ely and regularly help people move to, from or around Ely, Cambridgeshire and the surrounding areas.

When it comes to preparing for your house move there are 5 things that we always recommend. These important things will be worth their weight in gold when it comes to packing up your belongings for moving home.

Removal Boxes

While some think suitcases, bags and boxes are great for moving house they are not easy to stack and transport in a removals van. If you have proper removals boxes you can easily pack them, label them, stack them and organise. This will not only make moving out easier, but it will make moving in easier too.

Wardrobe Boxes

Wardrobe boxes are one of the most helpful things you can purchase when you are moving house. There is no need to fold and pack all your clothes. Instead all you need to do is take your clothes from the wardrobe and place them straight into the wardrobe box. At the other end, simply take your clothes from the wardrobe box and place them straight in the wardrobe. The best part – no, or minimal creases on your clothing!

Bubble Wrap

As a professional removals company in Ely, we can honestly say that you can never have too much bubble wrap! You’d be surprised at how much movement there is for your belongings when they are being transported to your new home. The more bubble wrap you use, the more protection your valuable belongings will have.

Spare Newspaper

If you have smaller items that are more delicate, then wrapping paper and spare newspaper will come in very handy. Especially when bubble wrap is too thick, wrapping paper and newspapers will come to the rescue. If you have awkwardly shaped items you may find that you can use excess wrapping paper and newspapers to fill gaps in boxes and offer additional protection.


The more sellotape, packing tape and masking tape that you can get your hands on, the better your move will be. Make sure you seal the boxes at the bottom to give them extra strength and at the top too to keep your items protected. Buying some good quality packing tape is highly recommended as this will not let you down.
