The traditional look of a removal team packing items into tea chests in history. The most recent moving cartons can be methodically packed to reduce space and therefore saving transportation and costs. The Cartons are designed to be easy to manage, secure and safe. A for more efficient system than earlier facilities.
We agree exactly what is to be packed so that you are happy with the arrangements and to ensure clarity. This can be every last thing, to just the glass and china.
If packing glass and china you may feel more comfortable laying it out for us on a suitable surface like a dining table. We can arrive to pack items the day before or on the day of the move depending on your desired time scale.
Different types of boxes are used for different jobs. Books are packed into smaller boxes as these are often the heaviest items to be packed and will keep the overall weight down. General items are packed into standard modular containers about the size of a tea chest. In some cases larger boxes may be suitable for storing linen and garments as these are lighter items.

To move boxes and furniture from my home
Great service - I would highly recommend this company! From when I first requested a quote through to completion of the job, Dean was extremely helpful and always got back to me very quickly. As I live in a second floor flat with no lift and there are parking restrictions on the street outside, this was not the most straightforward job. However Dean was very flexible in arranging an early start time to accommodate the parking issues and his team were extremely efficient and professional. The quote itself was also very competitive. I would definitely use this company again.
House move and furniture storage
Great team. Hard working and very friendly. Can highly recommend the packing and unpacking service, which certainly relieved a level of stress around the moving day. Thanks Dean and all at McKay Removals
The best ever ! So frendly aswel
First class service. Guys very accommodating and nothing too much trouble. Became friends by the end of the day.
Moving from a 3 bed detached house.
Excellent service provided. Very efficient in clearing the old house, waited patiently whilst we had to wait for the keys to be collected for the new house and then again very efficiently placed all the belongings in the new property. Very careful in both properties and despite the delays in getting the keys, were finished very quickly in the new property which meant there wasn't too much of a delay. They were also very patient as the move was delayed numerous times and on one occasion it was called off at 5pm the night before it was due to take place. However Dean was very understanding.
