Packing Service

Seamless Moves, Smiling Faces: Elevate Your Experience with Our Expert House Removal Services!

Need help packing ?

Packing up your belonging can be a very time consuming task.Why not let a professional packing and moving company do it for you? Jacobs and Co have years of experience in packing for domestic moves and export.Whilst the majority of the work we do, for local house and office moves involves packing boxes, we can also wrap furniture. Although furniture gets wrapped in removal blankets whilst in transit, some clients prefer having special or expensive items wrapped individually in bubble blanket (Furniguard) , bubble wrap or cellophane wrap. When it comes time for packing up give us a call on 0208 935 5949 and we will be happy to make an appointment for a site visit.

Packing material delivered.

In some cases clients prefer to pack some personal items themselves or pack as they go and leave the kitchen or fragile items for us to pack. No matter your requirement, we are happy to assist. Boxes, bubble wrap, tape can be delivered well in advance of the moving date , allowing the client to pack in their own time if they so prefer. We also offer a service to collect the (used) boxes once you have finished with them.

Un real as it took days to pack and the house was cleared in a few hours and the big items beds etc were disassembled for ease the reassembled at the new house without faff it took us a few days to unpack but as the guys said it's a work in progress now unpacking not a rush to pack before we moved - also we offered drinks and snacks which they enjoyed on the move and never stopped!!!

Helpful packing tips.

You have decided to bite the bullet and do your own packing. Here are some useful tips:

  • Make sure you use good quality boxes that can handle some weight. It is worth spending a bit more and getting good quality boxes.
  • Use 3 sizes of boxes if you can. Only pack books, dry foods, tins etc in small boxes, to reduce the weight. Use medium boxes for clothes, pots and pans, ornaments etc. Use large boxes for bulky and long items such as duvets, pillows, cushions rackets etc.Always pack liquids in a separate box.By only using 3 sizes of boxes they will stack and store better and reduce risk and space.
  • Don’t forget to feather the bottom of your box with paper when you pack fragile items.
  • Do not use tape on your paper of bubble wrap when packing fragile items. Just wrap the paper or bubble around the item and pack securely.You will thank we after. Unwrapping typed up items , takes a very long time.

Things to look out for:

  • Properly insured vehicles and staff. Do they state this on their website?
  • Clean and reliable vehicles with appropriate equipment such as straps, blankets, dollies, sack barrows, tools etc.
  • Friendly, professional staff.
  • A “can do” attitude.
  • Referrals and reviews for the company.
  • Please look into our other related service.
