Packing

The success of any international move depends greatly on the skillful packing and organisation by our operative personnel; these are the people that will spend most time in your home. We pride ourselves on utilising our own full time, professionally trained, highly experienced and uniformed packing crews.

For overseas removals your furniture is export wrapped. We use specially manufactured strong 6-ply paper blankets; these are unbleached and interwoven with layers of globular paper to create a cushioned protective barrier around the furniture item; crucial for overseas removals. An additional outer layer of card may also be applied to selected areas such as table-tops, exposed corners and edges.

If you are moving within Europe, we also offer a standard 'euro-wrap' option; furniture and large items are padded and protected on the moving vehicle with special moving blankets, saving both on time and cost.

All fragile ornaments, china, glassware, works of art, as well as books and personal effects, are packed with meticulous care using high quality inner packing materials and robust cardboard cartons. Hanging clothes are placed into special hanging wardrobe boxes, whilst folded clothes and linen are packed into lay flat cartons. Books and smaller/ heavier items are packed into smaller cartons (for weight) and pictures/mirrors are wrapped and packed into picture boxes.

We also offer a crating service, where required, to provide additional protection for any particularly large or fragile items.

Upon completion of packing, our crew will complete a detailed packing inventory for you to check, sign and date. Our packing crew will then leave a copy of the packing inventory with you on the day, for your records.
