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.

Removal boxes

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.

Really quick and careful with our stuff both during packing and moving

Absolutely brilliant. Really quick and careful with our stuff both during packing and moving and very pleasant people. Used Bradshaws because of their ability to take out waiver if date changed and competitive price.

Initial enquiry was very easy and clear info. Consultant call back came within an hour as promised.

All of them were excellent

…just wanted to drop you a quick email to say just how good the guys were who moved us from Lancaster to Chorley, Mike and Ryan on the first day and then also with Ben on the actual moving day. All of them were excellent and I feel it’s good for you to get good feedback instead of criticism.

Many thanks and God Bless

The team on move day itself were exceptional

What a crew!  They were fantastic.  Dan oversaw all aspects of the 2 day move and kept me informed every step of the way.  Lorne helped Dan pack on Day 1, again he was very friendly and courteous.  The team on move day itself were exceptional.  It was a highly emotional day for myself, and they treated me (and my belongings) with the utmost respect. I couldn't have wished for a better team.  Please pass on my sincere thanks them.  They completely took the stress out of the day for me.

I was happy with the way my initial enquiry was dealt with by your company, and Britannia were always in the running, however you were my second choice.  I chose you ultimately because of your availability.  My first choice, who were better on price, were unavailable.  A third company, I discounted from the outset, as their knowledge and attitude did not meet my expectations.

Comments regarding your initial enquiry - Martin Lloyd was, helpful, knowledgeable and friendly.

Managed to pack all our belongings into just 4 boxes

Please pass on our thanks to the removal team you sent to us on Thursday and Friday: Tom (who was there both days), Tony, Richard and Andy were all really efficient, polite and professional. We would like to put in writing our thanks to them and told the Friday team we would do so.

Not only were they professional, but as you will know, they managed to pack all our belongings into just 4 boxes. Many thanks again.
