The finer points of packing for a house move

Sep 21. 2016

If you decide to arrange a free pre-move survey with Burke Bros Moving Group prior to your move, one of our estimators will discuss packing with you.

Some customers decide to pack themselves and if this option is preferred, it is important that you give yourself adequate time. We can supply packing cartons and materials for clients to pack belongings themselves.  It is important to note that owner-packed goods are not fully insured, whereas those packed by the mover are.

Burke Bros Moving Group have trained packing crews who use the best packing materials to make sure items are packed safely for the move.  Fragile items are packed using packing paper, tissue, bubble wrap or polychips. Export-strength cartons in various sizes are used to accommodate books and heavy items. Special linen cartons as well as hanging garment carriers are used. Furniture is wrapped with padding and transit blankets.  On some occasions, export wrapping material is used to protect polished or antique items of furniture. Items can also be crated.

All of our removal operatives are trained to ensure that all of your personal effects make their journey in complete safety.  All specialist items or items needing extra care, be these; paintings, mirrors or musical instruments etc will be packed in special cartons and with protective materials which have been approved by the British Association of Removers, for maximum protection.

Delivery at the new premises includes full unwrapping of all furniture items and reassembly of items that require non-specialist attention such as beds, dressers and wardrobes etc if agreed.

For more information on how to prepare for moving house, or to arrange a free pre-move survey and to discuss our packing service, please contact Burke Bros Moving Group on 01902 714555 or email: sales@burkebros.co.uk.
