Pack heavier things like books into smaller boxes, and pack lighter things in progressively larger boxes. Never make a box heavier than one person can handle.

Be aware that moving business or house at peak times, such as Saturdays and during school holidays, will be more expensive, as demand is usually very high at these times. If you can, try and arrange to move on a normal weekday when it might be cheaper and there may be more room for a discount.

They will then advise you as to taking relevant meter readings, or send a meter reader to your Address on removal day.
