Our Packing Options

This packing service involves complete and thorough pack of your entire property. Everything from clothing, to artwork, to kitchen crockery and everything in between. Our professional removals team will use a variety of packing materials suited to each individual items needs.

This is a full comprehensive packing service designed to take away a very stressful element of moving and offer greater convenience to our customers. You may find you do not have the time to do this during the moving process, so contact the professionals and as part of your survey we will identify what needs packed and wrapped, what materials are needed, how long this will take and ultimately, what this will cost.

Allow us to check this off your list and we will ensure everything is wrapped and packed to a professional standard and labelled clearly for where it is to go in your new home, making for a much more efficient unpack at the other end.

This packing service option is tailored to your specific packing needs.

From our years of experience, we have found that many clients feel confident enough to box up their own clothes, linen, books and everything that is deemed non-breakable. They rely on our packing expertise to make sure all the breakable items are wrapped properly for the move. We are often asked to take care of full kitchen packs, all pictures and artwork around the property, dinner sets and various ornaments as these are items that are most vulnerable during a move.

With our wealth of packing knowledge, we make sure all the correct packing materials are applied to prevent any damages occurring to more breakable items in your home. It doesn’t have to be a non-breakable / breakable split though. If request us to simply pack your dining room, for example, and you take care of the rest of the house, this is perfectly fine. We will do as much or as little as you want when hired for a part packing service.

This packing service option is perfect for when you, the client, takes care of the entire pack and potentially only need the packing materials from us.

Through our initial survey we will have identified what packing materials you need from how many boxes, to how many wardrobe cartons, how many packs of packing paper or bubble wrap required. We can drop these packing materials to you well in advance of your moving date to allow you the maximum amount of time to prepare everything before the move itself.

All our packing materials are of high quality and up to a professional standard. They will definitely do the job when it comes to making sure your valuables are safe. Please feel free to still contact us as often as you would like throughout your pack for any hints or tips on what to do or to request additional packing materials or services. We are here to help you!

Unpacking is different from unloading. Our team will unload all furniture and contents as part of the removal service and ensure these items are placed in the correct rooms.

Our unpack service takes this one step further and focuses more on the packed boxes. We developed this service through the requests of our clients and it is aimed at reducing any unnecessary stress from your moving experience.

When you choose Caledonia Removals professional unpacking service, we will open up all boxes and unpack them for you. Any wardrobe cartons or clothing boxes will be opened and all clothing will either be hung in wardrobes or placed neatly on top of the chest of drawers that will house that clothing. All kitchen boxes will be unpacked and placed neatly on the kitchen work tops. We will place all glasses together, plates together, pots and pans together so you have a clear view of all kitchen items on show and all you then need to do is place these items into your desired kitchen cupboards or units.

We can unpack book boxes onto book shelves, we can unwrap any ornaments or artwork and place them in the correct position ready to be hung or placed in your desired positions throughout various rooms.

In addition, any materials left over after we have unpacked will be taken away by our team at a time that suits you, to make the move into your home as smooth and hassle-free as possible. Even if you unpack yourself and we need to return a week, a month or 6 months later to collect the packing materials, we will be happy to do so as this is all part of our quality unpacking service. It also helps us reduce our carbon footprint and re use or recycle all that we can in order to do our bit towards to the worlds ever growing problems with climate change, which is a primary goal of our company.
