Furniture which has been purchased as flatpacked will need to be broken down for transit, this type of furniture is not designed to be moved around in its assembled form.

Packing Cartons

These will be delivered to you in good time before you move following your discussions with our estimator. Please ensure both the top and bottom of the cartons, when packed, are securely sealed with packing tape.
Labelling
Mark each box with details of the contents. Please also clearly label anything that you will be taking with you in your own car and also anything that is to remain behind.
Self-assembly
Self-assembly furniture tends to be less rigid than ordinary furniture and we suggest that you dismantle such items prior to moving, unless previously arranged with our estimator.
Heavy items
When packing, give a thought to our poor staff! Books, for example, can be very heavy and should be evenly distributed and mixed with lighter items.
Delicate items
Glass and china items should be individually wrapped in packing paper and lighter items should be placed on top of heavier items. Try to pack vertically, if possible. Tiny objects should be wrapped in tissue and kept in a specially marked box. Ensure liquids are in leak-proof containers and are not inflammable.

Essential Moving Guidelines

Unless special arrangements are made with our estimator, our staff are not authorised to disconnect items such as cookers and washing machines. We therefore recommend that you organise this with a plumber and the appropriate Gas and Electricity Board.
Heavy items
If possible, secure the drum of your washing machine with transit bolts. Freezers need not be defrosted unless going into storage but it will be very useful if you could place all your frozen food into strong polythene bags which can be quickly removed and replaced when carrying the freezer.
Fixtures
Please ensure you remove all fixtures and fittings that you intend to take with you.
Loft
You should normally clear out the loft yourself, unless otherwise previously arranged.
Outbuildings
All garden and garage tools should be prepared in such a way that they can be easily and quickly carried to the van.
Garden
Please let us know if any plants are to be moved. In this case they should be made secure and watertight. Swings and climbing frames should be dismantled in advance with all relevant bolts safely retained.
