We use three basic types of cartons…
General purpose large box used for crockery, glassware, folding clothes, linen etc.
Small box used for heavy items like wine, books or sealed groceries. They are also used to pack fragile items that should not be layered, like crystal glasses.
Used for hanging clothes. These cartons hold 2 linear feet of clothes on hangers. Porta-robe cartons are usually brought along on moving day and retrieved at the unload. A hire fee is charged for each Porta-robe used. If you require them to be left on site, a refundable deposit will be requested.
All these high quality removalist boxes people have been using for decades are sure to stand the test of time for you too, outlasting the move so you can give them away or on-sell them to other movers, or use them for long-term safe storage.
Absolutely. Cars have their own space and are covered with protection from dust and contact. In addition to our 24-hour goods and premises security, please note that vehicles can only enter the depot through one entrance, and that entrance is impregnable and can only be exited with the use of a crane.
