Be careful when using packing paper!

Our packing professionals use blank newsprint and padding to protect your property. Make sure you do the same to prevent newspaper ink from rubbing off on your china. Use recycled newspapers only to stuff the boxes as part of the last packing step. Remember to put a 3 to 4-inch layer of newspaper at the bottom of your box. For more helpful tips, consult our Tips and Advice page.

Let our team of professionals pack your belongings. To make sure everything goes smoothly, we will create an inventory of all items we have packed. We will reassemble any item that was disassembled for transport once it arrives at its destination. Contact us to book our services.
