What to pack

There’s a lot at play in an international move and some of the biggest decisions you’ll make are deciding what to take with you. A lot of those decisions depend on where you’re moving to and the climate, culture, quarantine and logistic challenges of your destination. When all you do is pack, you start to get pretty good at answering some of the difficult questions and finding sensible solutions. Our moving team provide a comprehensive packing service, helping you organise, sort, store and pack your most treasured belongings. We’ve been moving houses for more than 100 years and we understand the practical challenges that come with moving overseas and that’s why we use our expertise to make you feel at home.


How to pack

Packing for an international move involves a lot more thought and preparation than packing for shifting locally. Your goods will be in transit longer and will go through different conditions and climates so packing to withstand the journey and the elements is crucial. Our professional packing team use protective materials like shock resistant poly bubble wrapping and made-to-measure crates for art, antiques and pianos. There’s already enough to keep track of when moving internationally – let our moving team put together a complete inventory of all your packed items so you know can get busy planning at the other end.
