Frequently asked questions
- Q: Is it permissible to utilize my personal packing materials, boxes, and clothing to provide cushioning for my belongings during the move?A: Yes, you are welcome to use your own packing materials, boxes, and clothing to provide padding for your belongings during the move. However, it’s important to ensure that the materials you use are suitable for protecting your items and preventing damage during transportation. Using sturdy boxes, appropriate packing materials such as bubble wrap or packing paper, and using clothing as additional padding can be a cost-effective way to protect your belongings, but make sure to pack them securely to avoid any potential damage during transit. If you have any concerns or questions about the suitability of your packing materials, it’s best to consult with professional packers or movers for expert advice.
- Q: Is the packing service accompanied by comprehensive insurance coverage?A: Certainly! When you opt for our packing service, your belongings will be fully insured throughout the entire process of loading, transportation, and unloading. This insurance provides valuable protection in case of any damage during the move, helping to mitigate moving costs. Our standard “goods in transit” insurance applies during the move, but if you require higher coverage, we can make arrangements in advance to meet your specific needs. Your peace of mind is our priority, and we strive to provide comprehensive insurance coverage for your valuable belongings during the moving process.Q: What is the usual timeframe for scheduling the packing service before the moving day?
A: The timing of the packing service will vary based on the size of your property. We strive to allocate enough time to account for unexpected events during the preparation stage of your relocation. For smaller moves, the packing can typically be done on the same day as the loading, and the same applies to overnight removals. Our goal is to ensure efficient packing and moving processes while taking into consideration the specific requirements of your move.
Q: Is it necessary to book the packing service at the same time as ordering the removals boxes?
A: If you would like our packing service, we can include the delivery of moving boxes in your quote. However, if you haven’t scheduled the packing service or boxes delivery when booking your removals service with us, you can always book the packing service separately at a later time. We strive to provide flexibility and convenience in our services, allowing you to customize your moving experience based on your specific needs and preferences.
