When you decided to move abroad, you hopefully went through a bit of a de-clutter to make sure you didn’t move with things you were not going to use. Well, the process is equally important when you decide to head back too. Therefore, it’s a good idea to sort through and think about what to move, rather than just packing up everything you have. The actual de-cluttering process can be quite liberating and can make you look at everything you own in a new light. Questions to ask yourself about each item can include: Have I used this in the last 3 years? If the answer is no, should the item be kept and moved to the new home? Is it kept for sentimental reasons that still apply? Is it old so can I bin it or give it away to charity & buy a new one in my new country?
After that, it is then the time to call us, so that we can make an appraisal of the removal, list all the items to go, and work out the volume so as to give you the best price. The price will be worked out from the volume of the goods to move based on the inventory, and how far apart the collection and delivery points are.
If you don’t want to source packaging online, we can supply boxes, bubble wrap and packing tape for your smaller items, so that you can pack your own belongings. If we carry out your removal, you get all packaging at Half Price, and we even give you tape and tape gun for Free! For hints and pro tips on packing go here
Alternatively, we can offer a full pack service, and will, therefore, do all the packing for you, which is a more convenient and faster solution for you. Whilst a more expensive option, this will take away all of the stress that packing normally involves, and means you can sit back and not have to worry about the moving process at all.
We will visit your house and carefully pack away the contents of every room into sturdy boxes, using bubble wrap and wrapping paper for delicate or fragile items. We also make sure that each box is marked so that we know where to put it in the new house.
For larger items, we use a special bubble blanket supplied just for protecting furniture during long moves, and we have special quilted sofa and padded TV covers, like the one above, to make sure everything stays in tip-top condition.
We even have hanging garment carriers, so that your clothes won’t need to be ironed when you arrive in your new place!
When we come to load the truck, mattresses are put into plastic bags, and we protect everything using transit blankets and large quilted removal pads, to ensure nothing gets damaged.
