Packing is a crucial part of any move. Get it wrong and it can be costly. Our experienced, fully trained staff can take care of some or all of the packing for your move. Alternatively you may choose to pack for your self

Should you opt for the Full Packing Service we will typically send a team of packers to your home prior to your move and they will pack all belongings and prepare all items for your move. Our staff have access to quality packing materials and are trained, experienced professionals.

If you prefer to have an Owner Packing Service we will provide you with a free loan of packing cases and tape.

If you are packing for yourself it’s important that you are able to complete all packing prior to our teams arrival.

The boxes are delivered flat with sufficient tape. The boxes may have been used previously. We like to use the boxes as many times as possible to enable us to keep prices down, and would ask you to keep them clean and dry until we are able to collect them. Unless stated, they remain our property and a charge of £2.00 per box will be made for boxes retained or returned unusable.

If you run out of boxes, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will endeavour to make a second delivery as soon as possible.

Tape boxes using two lengths of tape, the first through the middle and across the seam (to hold the box together) the second along the seam (to seal the box.) Do the same on the top of the box and write across the tape, using a permanent marker, the room where the box is to be placed and a brief description of the contents eg. BED 1 (shoes), KITCHEN (tinned food), etc. Mark the appropriate boxes ‘FRAGILE’ to ensure careful handling and loading.

Smaller boxes should be used to pack heavy, small items such as books, records, tins, bottles, cutlery, heavy food (rice, sugar etc) and heavy ornaments. Long stemmed glasses, delicate ornaments, very fragile china, glasses and small pictures should also be packed in these boxes. Books, for the most part, should be packed flat. They may be packed on their edges, but never with the opening facing downwards as this may break the binding. Pictures and records should be packed on their edges. Make sure that bottle tops are tight and pack bottles upright.

Medium sized boxes are the most commonly used and are used for most other household effects such as pots, pans, glass, china, ornaments, pictures, clothing, food etc. When packing china plates they should be placed on their edges, never flat, on the bottom of the box in batches of three or four, with paper between each plate. When the bottom of the box is covered continue filling with heavy china, Pyrex, mugs, bowls, vases etc. On top of this place glass and china (pack glasses upright.) Fill the boxes to capacity using soft items such as pillows, cushions, towels, cuddly toys, etc to take up any space on top. It is also a good idea to place soft items between each layer of china. Do not overfill the boxes; keep them square and in shape.

Larger boxes should be used for lighter items such as clothing, light linen, shoes, bedding, toys, board games etc You may also pack light pots and pans in these cartons. Keep back sufficient large boxes for packing of bedding in current use and mark boxes accordingly ie. BED 1, BEDDING, this will ensure they are easily identified for making up beds at your new home.

When opening the boxes and making them flat, cut through the tape using a knife or scissors, please do not rip the tape off as this is messy and tends to ruin the box. We will collect the empty flat boxes as soon as possible after you notify us. We are unable to take other used materials or rubbish.

Transit rails will be on our vehicle for your use on moving day. If you are storing hanging garments we are able to supply cardboard wardrobes at an additional cost.

It is generally not necessary to unpack chests of drawers, ottomans or similar furniture.

Tea and coffee making equipment should be packed last in one box and marked urgent, open first.

This ensures our packing service Swindon operates at full efficiency…
