Moving Guides

Here at Orbit Moving & Storage, we understand the stress and complications that arise when someone is about to move so we have decided to help this process in any way possible.

Further to our accommodating and highly experienced crews we have decided that providing our clients with detailed guidelines on relocating and on how to prepare before packing, will help streamline this process and reduce any stress or anxiety that might occur.

Find below our guidelines for preparations before packing and relocation:


A guide to stronger boxes

Choose Quality

Used boxes lose strength. Ensure your box is rigid and in good condition.

Avoid empty space

Too much padding reduces stacking strength.

Avoid boxes that are too big for their contents, as they risk getting crushed.

Seal With H

Use proper sealing tape in an H pattern on top and bottom, and consider strapping heavier boxes.

Label clearly

Remove old labels and add new labels with contents of box.
