Packing a house is a tiresome project. It is not about just packing your belongings in cartons and different containers but moving your life from one place to another. This is the reason why most of the people are concerned with the number of days it normally takes to pack your house. The answer to this question depends on a number of factors. Some of those factors are listed below:

Here we will discuss some important things that you should do on your first day in your new home. By doing so, you can make your first day in your new home a memorable one for years to come.


Following the UK's decision to leave the EU in June's referendum, there has been a lot of uncertainty in many areas. So is now a good time to buy a new home, or is it better to wait until the UK eventually leaves the EU?

Correct labelling of all boxes

The No.1 priority – and the single most important task - is the correct labelling of all boxes. By clearly and visibly marking each box with “all the contents inside” and “the name of the room they are to be placed in” at your new home, you will avoid panic and confusion - and speed up the entire removal process. A further vital tip is to clearly mark any box containing “fragile” items, as well “unpack first” for priority items. Our aim is to make your moving day as stress-free as possible, and our team personnel know they need to take even extra care with items marked fragile during loading and unloading.

The right packing material

It’s vitally important to use the right packing material or risk causing damage. A box which is not strong enough to carry the weight of its contents can easily collapse or a bin bag containing clothes can simply tear open. Boxes or bags also need to be sealed properly to protect against adverse weather conditions on moving day. At your request, our removals personnel can be directly involved in the secure packing of all of your home contents with all the necessary packing materials provided at a competitive rate.

Number of journeys how many boxes needed

The logistics of removals is as much a science as it is a physical activity. Essential pre-planning should involve accurately calculating the number of journeys it will take to completely remove everything. This will require determining the volume of contents against how many boxes needed. Gago Movers can help with the logistics of content assessment to ensure the most practical, efficient and cost-effective removal journey time.

Ensuring nothing gets left behind

With all the focus on the ‘big’, the ‘precious’ or other special household items, it’s easy for everyday objects to be overlooked because they were hidden at the back of a drawer or cupboard. Before leaving for the last time, it is always recommended to carry out a walk-through accompanied by a senior Gago team member. The task will involve not just a quick glance in every room, but actually opening all cupboards and drawers and even checking for any items still hanging on the walls, such as a clock. A check must also be made in the attic, the cupboard underneath the stairs, the garage and even the garden shed.
