What Can We Pack?

Everything. We create bespoke packages designed to alleviate all house moving worries and problems. Our team will work with you to create the complete package covering all your possessions wherever possible. Some restrictions may apply if you’re moving overseas (where goods and items are governed by different laws). Also, any items considered dangerous are judged on a case-by-case basis.

Items we can pack/move include safes, pianos, musical instruments, cycles, glassware, pictures, statues.

If you have a quick question about specialist items you can contact us now for a speedy response.

What Can’t We Pack?

We don’t move and therefore cannot pack any livestock, pets or perishable foods. We should also point out as a family-owned company we don’t pack children. As tempting as it may seem at times, we don’t advocate placing children in boxes (although our boxes do make great play forts!). Other items that may not be included in our packing services include;

  • Gas bottles
  • Aerosols
  • Paints
  • Ammunition
  • Explosives
  • Deeds
  • Securities
  • Stamps
  • Coins

If you’re moving overseas (Europe and beyond) or coming from overseas, restrictions may apply based on the laws of the country of destination/origin. We’ll be happy to work with you to help solve all issues and if you have questions regarding the transportation of items across borders then you can contact our team at any time for friendly advice and assistance.
