Packing Tips and Tricks: Maximizing Space with Dubai Movers

Moving can be a daunting task regardless of the distance. It is because of the trouble it brings with packing, transportation, and unpacking of personal belongings. A major share of this trouble could be alleviated if packing can be simplified with space-saving tips. Moreover, such strategies can benefit the environment by making transportation easier. Movers in Dubai have some practical tips in this direction.

Start Early and Plan Ahead

Planning earlier will lead to better inventory management, thereby saving space

  • Make a List: Make a list of items that need to be taken to the new location.
  • Measure Furniture: The furniture may or may not fit in the new place. It is better to take measurements in advance. If the measurements don’t match consider selling them and arranging for new furniture at the new place.


  • Donate: Items like clothing and utensils that are no longer needed can be donated, given that they are in good condition.
  • Sell: In case of unwanted electronics and furniture opt for selling.
  • Dispose:  Items that are unfit for reuse can be disposed of. Be responsible while disposing. Enquire about recycling programs and safe disposal methods in the locality and make a prudent decision.

The two tips mentioned above are highly recommended for residential moving UAE. A study by the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) has a valid observation to support it. It has found that the decluttering stage can reduce the volume of items by 25 to 30 percent leading to significant space saving during packing.  The other packing tips include the following.

Use of Quality Packing Supplies

High-quality packing supplies like a sturdy box and heavy-duty tapes ensure efficient packing. It leaves no space unused. Moreover, they guarantee safer transportation of valuable belongings.

Use Suitcases and Bags

Suitcases and backpacks could be used to pack clothing and other soft items. According to the American Moving and Storage Association, this approach can save about 15 to 20 percent of space than using boxes alone for packing.

Vacuum Sealed Bags

Packing bulky items like clothing and bedding could appear to be challenging. Vacuum-sealed bags that can compress these items are a reliable solution to cope this challenge. According to research by Consumer Reports, they can free up about 3 to 5 times more space compared to traditional methods.

Disassemble Large Furniture

Disassembled large furniture pieces save space while making them easier to transport. Moreover, they can guarantee zero to minimal harm to the valuable furniture. However, it is important to keep the screws and other attachments of these items in separate bags and get them attached to respective furniture. This will make it easy for the movers in Dubai to reassemble.

Optimize Box Space

Fill vacant spaces in every box with small materials like clothing like socks or innerwear. This approach has two implications. It will improve space utility while safeguarding other items from moving around in the box.
