3 Tips for Packing Your Car for Moving Day
Regardless of whether you’re using professional movers to help you move, or you’re going it solo, you’ll want to ensure that you utilise the space in your car effectively. Often, when we move home, we like to have items that we need to use on a daily basis nearby – in our cars. But when it comes to fitting in all of these items, as well as the family and pets, into the car, it can become a squeeze. At Pers Removals, we’ve put together 3 top tips when it comes to organising the space in your car when moving home.
Evaluate the Space in your Vehicle
Before the big moving day, clean out your vehicle of any unwanted items. If you use your car on a daily basis, it can become messy and untidy very quickly. So, it’s important to spend some time clearing it out. While you’re there, measure the available space so that you can assess which of your items will fit in the car. It may even help to draw a diagram of the space and visualize if your items will fit in.
Replace Boxes with Bags
Boxes are not always the best choice for packing your car; they’re bulky and angular which means they don’t slot into a car space well. We suggest that you replace boxes with bags for better use of the space. Bags can be used to carry clothes, towels and bedding, which will fit into the car easier. There are various different bags you can use; black bags, nylon bags and poly bags are all options when it comes to packing your car.
Borrow or Rent a Larger Car or Van
If you think that you won’t have enough room in your own car, consider hiring a larger car or even a van. If you have a friend or family member who has a larger vehicle, kindly ask them if you can use it in return for a favor. Having a bigger vehicle will also save you from having to do multiple trips on moving day.

What Our Clients Say
‘This is just to thank you and your team for the fantastic service during my move from Crouch End to Bexley. Everything was packed beautifully and the crew who moved me were fantastic, remaining friendly and good-humoured throughout. The piano was successfully moved from the first floor and everything arrived intact. It was really worth having the packing service as well, and my stress levels were kept well under control, so well done!’

‘Excellent company – gave me a really good price and fantastic service. We had the full packing service on the Monday, then they finished packing, and moved us on the Tuesday – on time and on schedule. Kav even had five guys on the job, on the Tuesday morning, which kept us on schedule. No breakages, everything was well packed: highly recommended.
We’ll be moving again in the next year, this time with a piano – we hope to use Pers Removals again!’

‘Three charming chaps arrived to move my piano from Maidenhead to West London. They took time to plan the moving process and communicated well with each other. They had several steps to cope with inside the house, and a few outside. I was expecting the piano to be bumped about – but not at all. Such care was taken – the piano could have been a newborn baby and would have come to no harm! Now that I have found Pers I will definitely use them again.’
