Packing & Materials

Your most treasured possessions will be carefully wrapped and taken care of for that journey to your new home even if it is just down the road.

Packing is one of the most important issues to take into account when moving especially if you want your valuables to arrive in top condition. All fragile items are packed to the highest standard with a realistic allocation of time.

Specialist care is taken into consideration and each item is wrapped as if we owned it ourselves. From china and glass to antiques and small ornaments, we ensure every fragile piece is packed with a “shock absorber” to avoid any impact during transit.

If you have high value items such as antiques or fine art, we can pack/wrap the item and place in a bespoke made wooden case or crate to offer extra protection, support and rigidity. Wooden cases or crates for international shipments, will need to be made from wood that has been “heat treated and stamped” to satisfy customs.

Wardrobe cartons are used to transport hanging garments in a crease free condition. We recycle boxes whenever we can and if they have been unpacked, they can be collected if we are in the area, provided they have been folded flat and are in a good re-usable condition.

All furniture items are wrapped and packaged. By packaging the furniture, it means the protection will remain in place. The packaging can also be numbered and labelled. This service can also be offered on UK and European moves should you require it or if you have individual treasured items.

For professional business and office moving, we can use plastic office moving crates. Security (lidded), standard, library and computer crates are available. Small scale office moves may just require cardboard boxes. All office equipment (I.T.) will be bubble wrapped. Labels are supplied so you can label both the packed crates and furniture in accordance to the delivery layout.

Other packing techniques and receptacles are available for industrial and workshop relocation's. Some of these are listed under Specialist Services.
