3 Ways Of Labelling Your Moving Boxes Like A Pro

“I’m not good at Blackberrys, cell phones, or packing.” – Jon Gruden

And ways to handle them” rates moving as the seventh most stressful event. When put into context, the number one most stressful event is the death of a loved one so relocating at number seven on this list can be considered quite a stressful event.

Tips to help you label moving boxes in detail

Even if you contract a reliable home interstate removals Sydney, packing and labelling boxes is still a challenge. There is nothing worse than arriving at your new destination to find boxes that belong in the kitchen and vice versa. Therefore, it makes sense to add detailed labels to every box that is packed.

Therefore, here are 8 tips to help you label your packing boxes in detail:

Decide on the labelling system

One of the most critical decisions that you need to make before you start packing is what labelling system you will use. Your options are as follows:

  • A colour-coded system where each room is allocated a colour and all the boxes belonging to the particular room are marked using the assigned colour.
  • Each box is labelled with a black waterproof marker stating what its contents are and which room it belongs in.

Purchase quality marking tools

Once you have decided on what labelling system you are going to use, the next step is to purchase a set of permanent markers (both black and coloured if you are using a colour-coded system).

These markers will be used to mark each box once it has been packed. And they need to be waterproof because you will never know what the weather will be on the day you move. The last thing you need is for the labels on each box to run and blur in the rain. It will make unpacking a nightmare.

Acquire custom labels

It is a good idea to label each box with specific details such as room, contents, and fragile or not to each box. The simplest way to get hold of labels with as much information as possible is to download sample labels from the Internet or to buy them from your removalist. The raison d’être behind this tip is that,  due to the stress of moving,  it is easy to forget to add enough detail to each packing box’s label.

Meet 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.
