Think about packing. We would be more than happy to supply all the necessary packing materials such as cardboard boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap, etc. Alternatively, we could quote you to wrap the entire contents of your house.
If you are packing yourself, make sure to:
Label all the boxes with the contents and the room they belong to, to make unpacking easier.
Pack non-essential items first, such as out-of-season clothes, books, and decorative items.
Pack fragile items with extra care and use bubble wrap, packing peanuts, or foam inserts to protect them.
Use towels, clothes, and linens as extra padding for delicate items.
Pack electronics separately and label the boxes with “Fragile” and “Electronics” to ensure they are handled with care.
Dismantle larger furniture items such as beds, desks, and shelves and pack them separately with all the necessary screws and bolts. We offer a furniture dismantling service which includes reassembly at the new venue. Please ask for details. Finally, double-check every room to ensure everything is packed, labelled, and ready to go
