LOVESPACE’S top tips for helping you pack up

  • Make sure you pack up your stuff carefully in sturdy cardboard boxes, and use bubble wrap to protect fragile items. Try and put your most delicate items in the middle of the box, surrounded by softer items such as pillows and clothes.
  • Gather the information you need for your moving out day. There may be certain time restrictions for the car park, and a deadline to move your stuff out by.
  • Make a note of what is in each of your boxes with the LOVESPACE app. This way you know where everything is when it comes to deciding which boxes to get returned. 
  • Use LOVESPACE’s free donation boxes to pack up items you would like to donate to charity and they will take them away for you when they collect your stuff.
  • Use the right packing box for each item. LOVESPACE recommend clothes boxes when storing your clothes. And remember that bikes and suitcases must be packed in a box.
  • Don’t overfill your boxes. LOVESPACE's weight limit is 25kg per box to ensure the boxes don’t break, and that it is safe for you and LOVESPACE staff to lift. Boxes over this limit will be repacked and split into separate boxes and you will be charged for this.
