Someone who has recently relocated might have piles of packing material and boxes lying with him/her as a waste. They will happily give them to you for free. Also do not go for shopping centre boxes, as though they may be absolutely free, but the inferior quality may cost you heavily in terms of damaged goods.
Try to get rid of all the junk
If an item is cheap and can be easily re-purchased then it is better to get rid of it. In case you are sentimentally attached to an item, then you may stash it. It is better to throw all other items which are not in use because lesser the number of removals, lesser is the packing and unpacking associated with it. This invariably means a faster move and less manpower.
Remember that the movers can do as much or as little work as you would like them to do. With a large amount of work the expense soars up considerably. It would be more economical if you will ferry your small items in a car by yourself and hire the Adelaide removal services team for moving the bulky and the large furniture.
The judicious use of bubble wrap is advisable
On most occasions bubble wrap, though entertaining is absolutely unnecessary. It is an added expense and you may easily avoid it by making use of magazines, old newspapers, dishrags and old towels in place of bubble wraps. Even bed sheets may be used to protect your valuable removals.
The breakable and fragile items should be separated and held in place so that such items remain safe and secure while they are moved.
