We’ve researched how you can find and source packaging materials for your next move, leaving the preparation before move day stress-free and productive.

From boxes and bubble wrap to paper, tape, and furniture covers, we’ve discovered the best methods for ensuring that your next move is as easy as possible.


Let’s get packing.


DIY Packing is a convenient way to get moving.

  1. DIY Packaging


If you’re planning to go down the DIY route, you have a number of packaging options available to you.

Places like Bunnings and Officeworks sell boxes, bubble wrap, tape and other packing and moving materials direct to consumers.

There are opportunities to buy in bulk, with the more you buy, the more you save. It’s also likely that you can do a quick Google search to find the most economical way to buy moving materials. Many packaging companies also offer hire options, where you are able to hire a certain number of boxes, bubble wrap or furniture covers and return them once you have unpacked and your move is complete.




You are able to utilise household items to help with packing.


  1. Thrifty Packaging


When it comes to thrifty packing, there are limitless options. You can utilise your suitcases, briefcases, backpacks, tote bags, garbage bags, ziploc bags, and washing baskets to help store and carry your belongings as you move.

Quite often pillows and linen can be used to protect any fragile belongings as they are transported to your new home or workplace.

What’s more is that you can often find free boxes on local online marketplaces, or even local stores like your local pharmacy or grocery store. It’s a great way to save money, pack on a budget and sustainably move from one place to the next.


Some removalists offer packing and unpacking services.


  1. The Organised Mover


If you are busy and don’t have the time to source packaging materials and pack your entire home or work place, there are transport companies who can do that for you! A lot of removalists and transport companies offer packing services, where all you have to do is book them in and confirm what needs to be packed and moved.


It’s a stress-free alternative to packing your home yourself, and can also include an unpacking service once your belongings are moved to your new home. The removalist is then able to dispose of the boxes and packing materials, leaving you with one less thing to worry about.


The hardest decision to make now is; which packing style will you choose?!
