Labeling of items

The cartons should be clearly labeled with information on what is inside them during the furniture removals in Sydney. This labeling should be done on the carton top. For example, if the carton contains china, simply write “CHINA” or “FRAGILE”. Another common label that is used is “THIS END UP”. On the side of cartons, you need to indicate the rooms into which the cartons will go. If you have had the time to organize yourself well, you can even do color matching between the cartons and rooms into which they will go. Because the movers don’t know which room is which, color matching works best when they are unloading items from the trucks into your new premises.
