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.
