One size fits all?
When it comes to relocation, we know that there’s no such thing as one size fits all.
We have a selection of high-quality boxes in all shapes and sizes, to cater for all your items no matter how big or small. From airfreight to archive, we use them all to make sure your precious belongings are transported safely from A to B.
We use pre-made, purpose-built boxes for hard-to-transport items like clothing, and we can also build custom protection for high value or fragile items, such as antiques.
You’ll get a household goods packing list with all your items clearly detailed for security and peace of mind.
