Packing Home Furniture For House Removals

When packing a home your self its important to consider the amount of items, belongings and furniture that you have and the time it takes to pack a home safely. The kitchen can be one of the more difficult rooms in a house to pack. As this is a room that every household member uses and spends their time. When packing a home 85% of your household furniture will be packed into removal boxes or wrapped in packaging like dismantled wardrobes or dining tables and chairs. The other 10% is for other items that don’t require packing like garden benches, tool boxes etc.

Many house removal companies will require for items to be placed into their original packaging before they can be moved, but this will depend on the type of item it is.

Many house removal companies and their insurance providers will no take fault if items are packed by the customer, so always check this out when booking a removal firm for your house removal.
