We offer amazing protection for you move with our COVID-Safe shrink-wrap packing. Rather than shipping items lose like many movers do, we pack and arrange your household goods onto your own pallet(s) before wrapping the entire shipment in multiple layers of high strength cardboard sheet and bubble wrap.
This means your items are always kept together and never come into contact with other customers' belongings. Furthermore, once packed, items cannot be individually handled. Your packed pallet will arrive at your door protected and untouched since leaving the UK.
We pack this way because; it offers the best protection for your move, it limits handling of individual items which means fewer accidents (we have the lowest claims record of any removals company) and it provides the perfect COVID-Safe barrier to ensure a ZERO-TOUCH service from departure to delivery at your door.
See our 40 second explainer below to see how it's done.
The ideal COVID-Safe method of moving abroad. No other removals company does this!

The high standard of our packing allows us to ship alongside commercial goods so we're never left waiting around for a container to be full (as is the case for many removals companies). Therefore, we can guarantee weekly shipping from the UK to thousands of destinations worldwide.
Once shipped you can also track your container here..
