Do you have things at home you no longer need? How long is it since you have had a big clean out?
If you are about to relocate to another address, it makes good sense to have a big sort out before you move.
Obviously a removalist cannot help you sort out things, but before you start the process of packing, do yourself a huge favour – have a read of our Packing Hints.
We have listed here some practical points that will not only make it easier for you to do all the packing, but it will also make the whole process easier and more cost-effective.
There are also many people who may need help with their packing before they move, for example:
- you may be time poor,
- you may have little helpers who will want to help by unpacking things like toys as quickly as you can pack them,
- your time may be more valuable, or better spent doing something else,
- you may not be physically capable of doing your own packing,
- you may have a large office or library you need help with, or
- you would sooner be doing anything else except packing.
If you would like assistance with your packing, Ashtons Removals have teams of professionally trained packers who can pack absolutely everything or just certain items for you.
Whether you have lots of crockery and glassware including fine china, books, linen, expensive paintings, clothing, toys and even garage or shed items – we can do it all!
Keep in mind if you want to insure any of your valuable items against breakage, the insurance industry does require these items to be professionally packed by your removalist.
Also, if you are moving overseas, it is strongly recommended to have your goods packed by a removalist. This will help you avoid any unnecessary delays or additional charges from customs or quarantine officials.
Don’t forget, whether you pack or we help you to pack, that is only half the exercise, because everything usually has to be unpacked at the delivery end.
We also have unpacking services to suit your budget.
