We are here to help and can provide guidance as well as our expertise. As we know, each person’s requirements are different and we will tailor our services to meet your needs, whether that is for removals only, full packing (or part pack) and/or storage. If in doubt, just give us a call!
Wrapping items carefully
Using sturdy cartons that close
Making sure of a firm pack that will not rattle, bulge outward or bend inward, with box lids closed and sealed
Make a start on the packing once you know that you are moving
Never pack flammable items including gas canisters, these for insurance reasons are not permitted
Boxes must be sealed with parcel tape top & bottom
Must be stackable, weight evenly distributed, enough for one person to carry (approximately 20/25 kilos)
Plates, cups, glasses wrapped with paper or bubble wrap
Mirrors, picture frames wrapped in bubble wrap or any other protective material (blanket, towels)
Label or mark boxes with room names or numbers along the sealing tape for the delivery address
No carrier bags. Must be heavy-duty dustbin liners or laundry bags with no sharp objects or fragile items in the bags
No loose objects (especially small electrical goods toasters, kettles, Hi-Fi, portable TVs etc.)
Cushion bottom of carton and between layers when packing fragile items
Wrap all fragile items individually
Pack heavier items in lower layers, lighter items in upper layers
Paper cushioning absorbs shock. Be generous
Loose packing leads to damage. Make sure items are firmly packed
Do not overfill carton. Top should close easily without bulging or sagging
Do not use plastic crates with no lids, these do not stack
Use clean newsprint paper. Old newspapers may work, but use them carefully because the ink may rub off onto your items. Clean, newsprint paper is available from us should you need it
The key to a successful pack is to try wherever possible to pack strongest point uppermost in the box, so when boxes are stacked in the vehicle compression does not damage items in the boxes at the base of the stack.
