Moving can be a stressful and busy time, so it can be great to look for ways where you can save time and energy. One such way is to use a professional packing service from your removal company, letting the experts do the hard work of packing up all your items for your move.
Britannia provides professional packing services as an option for all our moves, so we know the many benefits it brings to our customers. If you’re considering using a professional packing service for your move, read on to find out the advantages it might bring you.
One of the big benefits of using professional packing and moving services is that it can help to make the process much less stressful for you. When you move home, you’ll have a lot of different things to manage, including moving your items, selling your current home, buying the new home, changing your address, etc. Letting the professionals take care of packing your belongings means there’s just one less thing for you to worry about.
With Britannia’s packing service, you don’t have to lift a finger. Our highly trained team will come to your home a day or two before moving day to pack up your items ready to transport, bringing all the materials they need with them.
Packing your belongings yourself can take a lot of time. Trying to fit this in in addition to the usual day-to-day activities can be a big ask. You’ll have to first take stock of what you’re moving, then gather the necessary materials, and then pack each item, one room at a time.
Opting for professional packing services instead can save you a lot of time. The only thing you’ll have to do is potentially have a pre-move sort out if you think there are some items that you don’t want to move to your new home. Once that’s done, you can let the professionals take care of getting your items ready to move.
The professional packing team at Britannia is highly trained, so will be extremely efficient at packing your belongings. With a wealth of experience and expertise, we can get your items packed up safely and quickly. Our moves all begin with a pre-move survey, and as part of that, we’ll determine how big your move will be. This allows us to allocate the necessary number of team members to pack your items in the most efficient way.
Provides peace of mind
Our team of professional packers has regular training to ensure they have the necessary skills to pack and transport your belongings. This includes knowledge of how best to pack and move fragile and delicate items, such as ornaments and glassware, as well as large and bulky items like pianos.
If you pack your belongings yourself and don’t have this expertise, it could increase the chances of items getting broken during the move. Opting for a professional packing service means you’ll have peace of mind that the experts are dealing with your items in the right way, so they’ll be safe and secure during the journey.
Professional packers also have the right packing materials needed. For example, at Britannia, we have specialist packing materials such as wardrobe cartons for clothing, protective bags for sofas and mattresses, and padded bags for TVs and mirrors. This helps to keep your belongings safe and properly packaged for moving.
In addition, professional packing and moving services will come with insurance. This gives you added reassurance that your items will be covered in the unlikely event of an accident.
Reduce impact on the environment
Professional packers will use high-quality, reusable packing materials for your move. At Britannia, our packing team will bring all the materials they need for your move, and then take them away once you’re unpacked. The materials that are still of a high standard may then be used again for another move. Our packing materials are made from 100% recycled materials and are always recycled properly when they come to the end of their useful life.
If you source your own packing materials, you will usually buy them new, and then might not be able to store and reuse them again. The material might not be made from recycled materials and might not even be of a good enough quality to use again. This often results in the material going to landfill or recycling plants.
Britannia can also provide packing materials for you if you would prefer to pack your items yourself. We’ll deliver the materials in advance of your move, so you have plenty of time to get everything packed.
Another benefit of using a professional packing team is that we can provide additional services in the course of packing. For example, Britannia has a number of storage facilities across the UK. We can assist with getting your items packed into storage, whether you need long-term storage when you move abroad, or short-term storage to get some items out the way while you move.
With our container storage option, we can bring the container to your home, pack your goods then load the container, and then take it back to our safe and secure storage depot. When you’re ready to have your belongings back, we can deliver the container to wherever you need it.
