Tips for using Boxes and Packing Materials
Uses of Small/Short Boxes
These boxes are ideal for boxing of books, files and our general heavy items. If you start looking at the most time consuming part of any packing service which is the packing, firstly look at the kitchen, if you start going through the cupboards and emptying any tins and jars into these small/short boxes.
Be sure that any glass jars will need to be wrapped and padded to ensure they are protected from knocking against other items in the box and this will stop them breaking whilst in transit.
Uses of Medium Boxes
Uses of Large/Tall Boxes
Uses of Packaging Paper
Uses of Additional Packing Materials
In addition to packaging paper, we have a variety of other protective materials ideal for the packing and transport of your household goods.
Bubble wrap, the use of bubble wrap is best set aside for the protection of large and delicate items, such as mirrors and pictures to start off with. The best way to have your mirrors and pictures protected in transit is to ensure they are sufficiently wrapped with Bubble wrap. We recommend measuring out twice the length of bubble wrap to what you are protecting. If you are wrapping a 1 metre picture, ensure you have 2 metres of bubble wrap, fold the bubble wrap over so the bubbled side is on the inside of the sheets, then fold this around the front side of the pictures, this will ensure the most fragile part of the pictures is protected from knocks and bumps whilst in transit.
All domestic removals are charged by the hour or at a fixed price, though this depends on the number of staff and the time it takes to complete your move.
