Hints and tips on packing and preparing for your move

Here are some hints and tips on packing to help your move go smoothly.

  •  
  • Access and Parking: Our vehicles obviously, must be able to park outside your property whilst loading and unloading. If you have parking bays or yellow lines on the road and we are not able to park off the road, please arrange with the local authorities for special dispensation for parking. If you are moving somewhere where access for large vehicles is likely to be difficult, please let us know as we can arrange for smaller vehicles to carry out the delivery.
  •  
  • Divan Beds: Drawers in divan beds should be emptied.
  •  
  • Chests of Drawers: These can be left filled with soft and light items.
  •  
  • Wardrobes: We can provide wardrobe boxes for the items that are normally hung .
  •  
  • Lamp Shades: Should be packed in snug fitting boxes to prevent damage.
  •  
  • Plants: Please let us know if you have large plants that require special packing. Please note that plants are not covered by insurance.
  •  
  • Fragile items: Should be wrapped and packed separately.
  •  
  • Freezers and Fridges: Please empty and defrost these to prevent mould.
  •  
  • Washing Machines: Should be disconnected and emptied. Ideally the drum should be locked with the original locking bolts although it's invariably the case that you don't still possess them.
  •  
  • Utilities: Don't forget to notify Gas, Electricity and Water suppliers that you are moving and take final meter readings. You can also ask the post office and telephone provider to forward mail and calls for a period.
  •  
  • Marking your Boxes: It is prudent to clearly mark which boxes you want to be placed in which rooms on delivery. This saves you having to open them to see what's inside.

Whilst we provide an excellent packing service for the major furniture and delicate items, you will need to organize the packing of some of the smaller articles safely into boxes. If this is difficult or inconvenient, you may like to take advantage of our full and complete packing service.
