Packing up your apartment? This is for you.

Whether you’re moving somewhere new, going to work overseas, or blending your household with your new mate, you’re probably dreading your big pack. But with a few simple guidelines, it can be a faster and less stressful process than you imagine.

Here are our top tips for packing up your apartment:

Start with the packing materials. Packing up, moving, and storage is made so much easier when you use boxes and packing materials designed for the job. Quick  tip – don’t place too many heavy items all in one box – this makes them difficult to lift and move.

Need packing materials? We’ve got you covered!










Work a room at a time. Avoid chaos by dealing with one room at  a time. Declutter and organise all the items and then place every item in a box and keep all the boxes in the room they come from. Click here for our free moving checklist!

Keep clothes on hangers. If you pack your clothes still on their hangers, it makes it easy to unpack them and hang them up straight away once you get to your new place. Easy.










Label it all. Clearly mark each box with the room it needs to go into and the contents. You can use printed labels or colour codes. Then align these labels with an overall checklist. This will make things much easier when you reach your new location as each box can go to where it’s meant to be first time. Super organised!

Have items you want to keep for the future but aren’t taking with you right now? Consider self-storage! At StorTown, we can store all your possessions, for as long as you need them, in a clean, secure, easily accessible unit.

    I’m so happy to have discovered your site via Neat Freak. I have to pack up and sell my house as I was recently widowed and move into a small apartment. It’s a huge relief to know that I can store my stuff if necessary and to discover a source for boxes and packing materials. Could you please advise what sizes your boxes come in and do you have wardrobe boxes?
    Many thanks

      Hi Shirley,

      Thank you for your request. We have a selection of boxes to meet your needs, our moving boxes are medium-sized, and can be likened to fitting a microwave, kettle and, with a push, a toaster – they are R13 each. Take a look at our packaging supplies and costs here: If you would like to find out more about StorTown from our team, please feel free to email or call: 087 944 6427.
