All About Moving House

Our Home Removals portal covers all aspects of packaging and moving goods from your home or place of business , in order to transport them to another place either locally or overseas, or onto storage while you finish your moving process.


The Best Packing Containers For Moving House

The boxes you use to transport your possessions from your old home to your new home will be one of the most important factors if you want your belongings to arrive without any damage. Whether you are moving within the same town, to the other end of the country or even overseas, the choice of boxes is important. Don’t assume that possessions are less likely to break if the journey is shorter. Poorly packed items in flimsy boxes can, and will, break on even the shortest of journeys. Put some preparation into how you pack your items and into what types of boxes and your move is likely to be far more successful and your belongings to arrive at their new home in pristine condition.

Soft items such as bedding, curtains, cushions and clothing can be packed in suitcases or bags but smaller items such as books and CDs need to be packed in cardboard boxes. Fragile items such as china and glass need rigid packing boxes specially designed for the purpose. Many people think they can use packing boxes obtained from a retail outlet but these are simply not rigid enough for transporting fragile items.

Originally wooden tea chests were used by removers to transport personal possessions during a house move but now it is far more likely to be rigid cardboard boxes that are used. A good removals company will usually be able to provide suitable packing boxes in a wide range of shapes and sizes, so that there is a box suitable for all of your possessions no matter what their shape or size. The remover should also be able to offer a range of budget options with respect to the packing boxes to help keep the moving costs down. Clearly less valuable items might be better suited to a cheaper box but very valuable items will require a very thick, rigid box. For very valuable items such as antiques, specialist removers can make a custom crate with shaped foam inserts to protect awkward shaped items of high value. These types of custom boxes are very reliable in protecting delicate items but are really only cost-effective if the item is very valuable.

To make your move as hassle-free as possible try to find a removals firm that supply a range of boxes for different budgets but also packing materials, strong tape and labels.

“Household removals require careful wrapping and packing to avoid damage to
furniture and effects, so many household policies do not cover goods in transit
unless they are being packed, carried and unpacked by a professional remover.”

Packing to move to your new home can be a large job, but one worth taking the time to do right. If you have collectibles, they may be worth a great deal of money overall. Even if they aren’t, they are likely to be something very dear to you. Packing these collectibles safely will help ensure they are going to be ready to unpack at your new destination without any type of damage to them.


When searching for a reliable removal company you need to get information about them, as they ask you several questions when requesting a removal quote, you can also ask about Insurance policies, if there are third parties involved (some removal companies work in connection with truck rental services for the moving of your belongings to the new destination, same with the Insurance policies) [
