Efficient Packing Techniques for Interstate Relocation


Relocating to a new state is significantly different from a local move in a number of ways. On the face of it, both are about loading up personal items and moving them to a new location, but the truth is, an interstate move requires a higher degree of skill and expertise. Due to the longer distances covered, the success of a move is dependent on the quality and efficiency of the packing. When packing for a long-distance move, the priorities are maximising space utilisation, minimising the risk of damage and keeping things organised. In this blog, T&U Removals offers packing and moving tips that are backed by years of industry experience.


Plan in Advance


When packing for relocation, the best way to start is by donating, selling or discarding the things you no longer need. Once the clutter is gone, you are in a better position to assess what you own and to begin packing items you rarely use. Before you purchase new packing materials, use extra suitcases, boxes and bags to make the process easier.


As you get better at estimating how much space your belongings occupy, purchase high-quality boxes, tape and other packing materials you may need. Moving boxes interstate means that your goods will be in a truck for long distances, so there’s always a chance that things could get damaged. Simply put, quality packing materials are the best way to protect goods in transit.


Essential Packing Supplies


One of our most important tips for moving interstate is, always stock up on essential packing supplies such as:


  • Protective wrapping like bubble wrap, foam, butcher’s paper

  • Packing tape with dispenser

  • Bright, clear markers for labelling

  • Fragile stickers

  • Furniture covers
