Preparing to Move

Preparing for moving home can be an overwhelming process as there are multiple factors to consider. Prior to moving, it is essential that adequate time and resources are available to pack and protect your possessions in order to ensure that the moving process is seamless. We understand that many of our clients may not have the time, skillset or materials required to pack themselves. Therefore, we offer a comprehensive range of packing services and packing materials to complement your removal. An outline of these services can be found below.

Packing Materials

Packing materials are an essential factor when executing a successful removal as they provide protection for your possessions. We therefore work with industry-leading suppliers to ensure that we can provide purpose-made materials for your removal. Prior to your move, our experienced team will be able to outline our packing material recommendations specific to your requirements. We offer a variety of packing materials including various sizes of packing boxes, high-quality tape, packing paper and bubble wrap.

We offer a full range of packing services that utilise these packing materials; however, if you would prefer to pack yourself, we can deliver the necessary packing materials to you prior to your removal. We understand the time involved in packing and protecting your possessions; therefore, we can arrange the delivery of your packing materials in a timely manner well in advance of your removal day. As standard following on from your move, we can arrange the collection of used packing materials in order to recycle them.
