When removers talk about packing it related to anything loose within your home that will fit into a box. It includes cupboard, shelf, windowsill contents as well as anything hanging on your walls. You need to discuss and agree with your remover who will be packing what.

Which Packing Service Should You Choose

There are several factors that determine who will be packing what within your home

  • Time - do you have the time to carry out the packing
  • Inclination - do you want to pack up your home or would you prefer others to carry this out.
  • Cost - the more labour that is required the higher that charge so choose the service to match your budget.
  • Insurance implications - we all view insurance differently, ensure you are conversant with all insurance implications that apply to the packing service you choose.
  • Your need to have a clear out at the same time

  • Glassware

Full Packing Service

When removers are asked to perform a full packing service then they understand that the responsible for the packing of all of your personal effects within your home. Often it is necessary to send packing crews in prior to the removal day when a full packing service is required.

Wardrobe Cartons

It is normal to transport all adult hanging clothing in wardrobe cartons. Typically these will arrive on the removal day on the removal van. It does not take long for you to transfer your clothing into these boxes onto the suspended rail and off again at the other end. A deposit maybe required if you need to dismantle a wardrobe and require these in advance or need to retain them for a period in your new home.

Top Tip When Packing Up Your Home

Avoid the temptation to buy cheaper cartons. The cheap cartons you see being sold on the internet are usually single wall boxes and are generally not up to scratch. A double wall carton is much stronger and will prevent damage. Fill every carton to the top to prevent them crushing at the corners and use smaller cartons for books !
