So you’re moving house. Amid the long list of things to do before you move, packing of your boxes is of course an item high on the moving agenda.Cartons and Packing materials

If you are thinking about doing the packing yourself, remember that you can always opt to engage the services of professional packer from a reputable removal company to pack only your fragile items such as glassware, crockery, electrical items, mirrors, ornaments etc. and you may be surprised at how cost effective this is. You are then free to pack the non-breakable items such as clothes, toys, books, etc., keeping your costs down, and protection high.
