Alongside our removal and storage services, we can also offer a number of additional services if required, which include pet transport, money transfer, vehicle shipping for European or international removals and a comprehensive packing service for both national and international moves.
There are basically two types of packing, export packing for international removals and packing for domestic and European removals. Whatever your requirements Britannia Beckwiths at Sussex will use our own fully trained staff. We mean what we say, all our packers have been trained, examined and successfully passed at one of the two Britannia training facilities and have the certificates to prove it.
This is for international shipments where the goods will be loaded into a steel shipping container either as a groupage shipment at our Croydon depot or directly into the container for the larger shipments. All effects that will fit into the various cartons available are packed this way and then furniture is individually packed using a material called speed wrap (a cross between a jiffy bag and bubble wrap). Beds and mattresses are packed into large padded bags, chairs and sofas into similar ready made bags and all items are labelled and inventoried.
Domestic and European Packing
All furniture is loaded into our vans and wrapped in extra thick pure wool blankets for extra protection. (The majority of our competitors us polypropylene blended blankets which are much smaller and offer much less protection). All effects that will fit into the various cartons are wrapped and packed using plain paper, tissue and bubble where required. We also offer our clients an owner packing removal, however most of our customers take advantage of our competitively priced packing service. All our materials are purchased from BAR Services, a subsidiary company of the BAR and the market leaders in supplying packing materials for the removals industry.
