Handle me with care
Whether it’s your antique crockery selection or your everyday plates and dishes, you want to ensure that everything that’s breakable arrives in one piece. The best way to do this is clearly mark every box that has something breakable in it with fragile stickers and by writing handle me with care across it with permanent marker.
Although Andrews Removals, will handle all of your items with care, by making it clear that a box contains breakables you can ensure that they will put it down that little bit softer during your house removal. Of course, it won’t only be our trained removals specialists that will be carrying your items during the move, it’s important for your family and friends who will help you unpack to know about breakables.
Bubble Wrap it for you house removal
People often underestimate the importance of bubble wrap during a move and believe that packing your items with screwed up newspaper is just as good a solution.
