Reloux® International Moving Packing Tips and How to Reduce Overall Volume of Your Shipment to Save

Moving Packing Tips:

When preparing for an international move, efficient packing and reducing the overall volume of your shipment can help you save on relocation costs. Here are some tips from Reloux® to make your packing process more streamlined and cost-effective:

Declutter and Downsize: Before packing, carefully assess your belongings and separate items you no longer need or use. Sell, donate, or discard these items to minimize the volume of your shipment.

Plan Ahead: Create a packing plan and schedule to ensure a systematic approach. Start packing well in advance to avoid last-minute rush and potential delays.

Optimize Packing Materials: Use appropriate packing materials such as sturdy boxes, bubble wrap, packing paper, and tape. Pack efficiently to maximize space and protect your items from damage.

Pack Strategically: Begin by packing non-essential and seasonal items first. Then, focus on everyday essentials closer to your moving date. Pack room by room and label each box with its contents to facilitate easy unpacking at your destination.

Disassemble Furniture: If possible, disassemble large furniture items to reduce their volume and make them easier to transport. Keep screws, bolts, and other small parts in labelled bags and securely attach them to the furniture for easy reassembly.

Use Vacuum-Sealed Bags: Vacuum-sealed bags are great for compressing bulky items such as clothing, bedding, and soft items. They help reduce the volume occupied by these items, allowing you to pack more efficiently.

Consolidate Items: Group smaller items together to make the most of the available space. Fill gaps in boxes with smaller belongings or packing materials to minimize movement during transit.

Consider Storage Options: If you have items that you won't immediately need at your destination, consider placing them in temporary storage. This can help reduce the volume of your shipment and save on relocation costs.

Rent Smaller Storage Units: If you need storage, choose a smaller unit that can accommodate your essential items. Downsizing your storage space will help reduce costs.
