Removals Packing

We offer packing as an extra service and there are a number of options to meet your needs. This can vary from professionally packing just a couple of items to preparing your entire home for removal. 

If you decide to pack yourself here some things to remember…

• Packing takes longer than most people think. So start early!
• Packing and completing one room at a time is the most effective way to pack your house.
• Remember, for all items (apart from clothes) – if it fits in a box, it goes in a box. This is the safest and most efficient way to transport most of your goods.
• Cushion the bottom of the box with paper or soft items such as a towels. Use bedding, cushions and linen when packing your fragile ornaments, this will provide additional protection without wasting box space with unnecessary paper.
• Put heavy items at the bottom, lighter items on top.
• Crockery, such as plates should be packed inside a small box on their side, with paper between each plate.
• Glassware should be packed inside a medium box, standing upright in layers with paper in between each item.
• Books should be laid flat in one of our small boxes.
• Lamps should have their shades and bulbs removed and packed separately; any hard items packed with lampshades can easily pierce them.
• If your box contains sharp items mark the package and the top, it could save your fingers when unpacking!
• Fill all boxes to the top, but ensure no bulging or overfilling.
