Packing and crating

On the moving date, our packers will bring all the required packing materials to your residence. They will pack all cartons and wrap all items or furniture on site. Each carton can be identified by the signature of the respective packer. All of the personal effects will then be loaded into a container at the residence, or in lift vans and/or groupage container at our warehouse.

To reduce damage risk during the move, we use the best packing materials that have been designed for international moves. Furthermore, specific packaging will be used for each kind of goods. China, glass and items of delicate nature are individually wrapped and placed in protective, double wall cartons or special crates custom-built by our own carpenter. We use extra-thick boxes for some heavier goods such as books, hanging wardrobe boxes for clothes, special cartons for mattresses, bubble wrap for furniture, etc.

We use the best recyclable packing materials during your move. When packing, we use padded and specialized materials such as heavy-duty boxes, plastic covers, cartons, and also wrap your fragile items in shock absorbing, soft materials. We have an excellent team of packing and planning professionals. Our packing specialists are expertly trained, and you won’t have to worry about any of your belongings being handled by inexperienced movers. Our packing crew will make sure all of our materials are properly used and will also give you the best tips in order to make your moving experience as easy as possible. We have been moving and packing boxes for residential clients and companies for several years, so you can be sure to trust our highly specialized range of packing services.

This is all part of our complete moving planning process.
