Packing early is a way to make the move less stressful. But you have to do it correctly if you want to do the move with minimal hassles. You should begin by getting some boxes needed to pack your things. You should not use just any box though. It is important that you have sturdy boxes so they will not easily get torn while in transit.
You don't have to automatically buy boxes. For instance, you can ask for sturdy boxes from grocery stores. You can also ask boxes from people who have recently moved too. But if you cannot find free boxes you would have to consider buying some. If there are items that need special boxes you should buy the needed boxes in order to keep your things safe.
Of course, what would keep the things inside the boxes safe is a good seal. This would come in the form of packing tapes. Make sure you have sufficient packing tapes before you start packing. Make sure that you have quality packing tape too. In fact, it would be a good idea to ask your removals company for recommendations. Get a larger dispenser with teeth so you can easily tear off the tape. This would make packing faster and easier.
You would also need to cushion especially delicate items. You would need bubble wrap for this purpose. You can also add a layer of crumpled newspaper to save a bit. Butcher paper is also a cheaper option. If you have small items from disassembled furniture it's better to put things in re-sealable bags too. Get a marker for labeling the boxes too.
