Packing up your home is one of the most stressful life events – this a simple how-to guide to help you pack up your delicate furniture.

Packing delicate furniture or any furniture for that matter requires proper planning. One of the tasks that you will have to undertake is to decide what items you can take with you, and which items you can’t fit into your new home.


We tend to be great hoarders and keep old/broken items for much longer than we should; therefore, I believe that it’s a good idea to think of your move as a way to spring clean and clear out all of the junk you no longer need or want.

Once you have decided what to take with you and what to leave behind, you will then need to decide how you are going to pack your delicate possessions.

On the other hand, you do not have to pack up your delicate furniture, you can consider approaching our cheap and professional removalist in Strathfield for some professional help packing up your furniture.

Here are 6 tips to help you pack your delicate furniture:

1. Decisions…

Possibly the most difficult task of the move is deciding what you want to or can take with you. Make a list of all these items. You can give the rest away, or even sell them if you have high-value delicate antiques.

2. Lists and categories…

The next tip is to make a list of all of the items that you will be taking with you. Divide the list up according to fragility and size. This will help you determine the number and sizes of packing boxes you will need, as well as what packaging materials to use to protect your possessions.

3. Packing and protection…

The third tip is to make sure you purchase adequate amounts of packing boxes (in different sizes), packing tape, bubble wrap, newspaper, and other protective packaging materials. Delicate items often come in awkward-to-wrap shapes and sizes; thus, it’s important to ensure that you purchase enough packing and wrapping materials to suit all of the different delicate item’s shapes and sizes.

4. Blankets, comforters, or tarps…

Wrap your delicate items that are too large to fit in boxes in comforters, blankets, or tarps. Make sure that the blankets etc. are secured around the item to prevent it from slipping off when being transported by a reliable Marrickville Removalist.

5. Electronics and computer equipment

Check to see whether you have kept the original boxes for each of these items. If so, do you best to pack them back into their boxes as close to the way the manufacturer originally packed each item? On the other hand, should you not have the original packaging, securely wrap each item in bubble wrap and pack it in a box that is as close to the original box as possible.

6. The art of packing…

Carefully wrap your glassware, dishes, and other small items in bubble wrap, packing paper, or newspaper. Make sure that when you pack each item in a box, there is an adequate amount of padding between the different items and they can’t move.

About The Author

Bill Chen

Before 2008, Bill was working with a local removalist company in Sydney and was witness for a number of deformities and wrongs in the working of the company. Observing the atmosphere, a thought came to Bill’s mind that he could do much better if he were the owner of the company, by offering a fully transparent service to the clients with a friendly and trustworthy staff and no hidden fee structure; and thus, in 2008, AAA Bill Removalists Sydney was formed with just one truck and only Bill as staff. Even if Bill Chen began the company as just one man, the company grew fast. The operation expanded beyond the Sydney suburbs and to the surrounding cities: Wollongong, Wagga Wagga, Albury, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Coffs Harbour, Canberra, Newcastle, Melbourne, Brisbane, and other.
