Packing tips

Self Pack

If you opt to pack your own belongings they will need to be ready for removal when we arrive

As part of our self-pack service we supply and fit protective covers for mattresses, sofas and armchairs. We provide blankets to protect your furniture and wrap large table tops and televisions. Travel wardrobes are also available on request as part of this service to ensure that your clothing arrives in perfect condition.


Moving house is probably not something you do regularly. We have compiled some helpful guidelines to help you pack for a straightforward and successful move.

Before your removals team arrives:

  • Order boxes using our buy or borrow service.
  • Box all items where possible, including hand tools, lamps, DVD players, computers etc.
  • Telescope boxes together using tape to accommodate larger items.
  • Ensure that boxes are no more than 20kg (40lbs) by part filling a box with heavy items such as books and adding lighter items like cushions until it is full.
  • Tape boxes closed at the top and bottom.
  • Use a marker pen to label the tape on each box with its destination, e.g. ‘BEDROOM 1’ and any other information, e.g. ‘HEAVY’ or ‘THIS WAY UP’.
  • Wrap fragile items well, use strong boxes, tape closed and mark ‘FRAGILE’.
  • Tape longer items together, e.g. garden tools and lengths of wood.
  • Dismantle large items of furniture where possible, e.g. beds, wardrobes and tables.
  • Disconnect, empty and clean appliances, e.g. washing machines, cookers, fridge-freezers.
  • Remove and box or wrap all the fixtures and fittings you are taking with you, e.g. curtains and blinds.
  • Drain oil and fuel from canisters and machinery, e.g. garden mowers.
  • Discard hazardous liquids, e.g. paint (these items cannot be transported).
