IMG_0039Often the key to a successful move, the packing process should be given the utmost attention. Harradines offer an extensive full or part packing service, providing either total pre-move boxing and wrapping or the materials to do so yourself – completely free of charge on a short-term loan basis.

Our fully trained team are experienced with all aspects of packing for removals, including delicate handling of all fragile items, such as glassware and antiques, and dismantling large furniture items.

Our packing services even stretch to the removal of all blinds and curtains, protective covers for your mattresses, individual wrapping of all glasses, china and breakables to keep them safe and secure, carpet protection for stairs and hallways at your new property and even piano moves!

Packing Materials

All the packing materials – from crates, bubble wrap and tape to wrapping paper and labels – are of the highest quality, and our boxes are double walled for extra strength. If you opt to carry out packing for yourself, we can provide all materials free of charge until the move is complete, even collecting them from your new home a few days after you move in.

With over 40 years in the industry, Harradines have the experience to cater for all packing needs, and all of our work is accredited and vetted to a high standard by the National Guild of Movers and Storers.
