Packing for your removal
Our customers frequently choose our full or partial packing services, but many also choose to self pack for their removal. Packing your belongings can be a way to save a bit of the cost of moving - but only if you do it correctly. If you don't pack your belongings well, they can break or become misplaced, costing you more in the long run through buying replacement items. And, of course, some things just can't be replaced.
Having good removal boxes is the first step to ensuring your packing and removal day goes well. We will advise you on boxes for your removal at the time you book to ensure you have enough of the right cartons for your needs. If you're not moving with us, you can purchase removals boxes from Britannia Bradshaw.
Buy removal boxes & packing materials
You don't need to be moving with Britannia Bradshaw to buy our home moving boxes and supplies. We sell our sturdy, clean boxes in various sizes, wardrobe cartons, as well as bubble wrap and tape.
There's no minimum purchase - you can buy one box or buy enough for your entire house to be packed away, the choice is yours.
Home delivery is available - If you drive a very small car or don't drive at all, we can bring the boxes and supplies to you for a small fee. Please ask our representatives for more information on delivery costs for your cartons and supplies.
Don't overfill your boxes
Although our removals crews are fully trained and experienced in handling and removals, they are still just humans. Please don't make the boxes too heavy for them to carry. A good rule of thumb is if you can't pick up the box, neither can they. Pack light items such as bedding and linens in large boxes, and heavy items such as books in smaller boxes. And don't be afraid to put your cushions and pillows in with your heavier items - you can save space that way, and the boxes are still light enough to be picked up easily.

No hazardous materials
Our insurance doesn't allow us to carry hazardous materials such as paint and other liquids. You'll need to arrange for these items to be moved yourself. We suggest putting them into a plastic container before attempting to transport hazardous materials.

How are our appointments carried out
In the current times you might prefer that we don't visit your house in person to carry out a survey. This is fully understandable and we can just as easily undertake the survey by video call, using whatever method you're comfortable with, usually FaceTime or WhatsApp.

Very thoughtful during the packing process
Amrik, Jamie and James were punctual and very thoughtful during the packing process. They made sure I had everything myself and the kids would need from each room before they packed and double checked school times to make sure I could get away in time. Packing was super speedy and considerately labelled. The removal process was very smooth, I didn't need to lift a finger except to lock and unlock doors. They took great care not to damage any furniture or walls. Rebuilt the beds and moved the odd item to a different location as I asked. I was amazed that they could pack and remove us between 0830 and 1445 and would not hesitate to have them remove us in the future. Thanks to all the team who helped move us into our first house.
I used the company for its packing service. Very professional.Sabrina MaratheBirmingham
Crew were all helpful, friendly, approachable and professional
The crew were all helpful, friendly, approachable and professional. They arrived right on time and estimated the time they would finish packing correctly. We had a delay in getting our keys and 2 extra crew arrived to assist with the unloading. Recommendation from a previous customer. Helpful and accommodating.Suzanne TruschManchester
Took away all of the stress of the move
The crew were beyond fantastic on the day of moving. They took away all of the stress, were very friendly, polite and couldn't do enough to help. They went above and beyond my expectations and I would absolutely recommend to anyone. We were really pleased with them all.
We were really happy with the service and cannot recommend the company enough. The crew on the day truly took away all of the stress of the move! Really polite, helpful and reassuring.
Made an already stressful situation a dream
Amazing! Really nice crew led by Mark, couldn’t do enough for us! There were items missed off their list which were quoted for, rather than make an issue out of it they simply cracked on and made an already stressful situation a dream. If there is a team of the month award these lads definitely deserve it. Their attitude, how they represented your brand and the removal itself were a great credit to your business. I would highly recommend them to others.
Really easy via a video call. Didn’t get a price elsewhere we were happy with the price quoted.Peter RedgateManchester
