Makes your moving easier
- Work your way through the various checklist. Starting at 4-2 weeks before you move home and go through each one at a time.
- We will advise you on who to contact, and useful things to do while moving home.Addresses, telephone numbers and useful website links can be found within the useful contacts page.
- Everybody is obviously different as is every home move and we can not include every possibility.Hopefully these suggestions and checklist will jog your memory and point you in the right direction to make your moving home experience less stressful as things are easily forgotten when you have so much to organise and think about.So when you are surrounded by boxes you can still find a useful list of things to do.
No more fatigue
- Everyone agrees that moving is stressful. Even if you and your family has moved too many times to count, you probably still worry every time you think about packing up your home. Make your life easier and use BRITMOVE to help you reduce your stress during your move.
Happy professional workers
- We will provide uniformed, reliable and expertly trained staff and we promise to treat your belongings with care and handle your move in a courteous, respectful way.

Our careful packers can supply all packing cartons and materials.Please let us know if you would like more information about our packing service.
Frequently asked questions
Firstly, try to use a box that’s the right size. Books and DVDs are heavy so they need to be packed into smaller boxes. Try not to have items sticking out of the top of boxes – this makes them harder to load. Try to fill up the boxes with cushions, linen or even newspaper so the top of the box doesn’t get crushed!
In the kitchen, it’s best to try and place a towel or sheet at the very bottom of the box. Crockery and glassware items will need to be individually wrapped in paper. White butchers paper is best for this as newspaper can sometimes leave ink marks. (We have butchers paper for sale if you need some). Finish off the box with another towel, sheet or layer of crumpled paper at the top. Boxes should be packed firmly (so the contents don’t move around) but not too tight.
Dinner plates are best wrapped individually and then stacked on their ends.
You can use light things such as Tupperware and plastic items to fill up boxes that have heavier items on the bottom layer.
Boxes should be labelled with the room and a brief description of contents, so you can find things easily at the other end.
Yes you can leave clothes and blankets inside drawers and blanket boxes. Anything that will move around inside drawers will need to be removed and packed into boxes. It’s a good idea to remove make-up, medicines, jewellery, stationery, etc from drawers and repack them somewhere else.
Documents and files can be left inside your filing cabinet.
Once you know everything has arrived in your new home, and it’s all safe and sound – we would like payment please!
Payment is expected on the day of removal and can be made via these methods:
major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express)
Please note that payment by American Express will attract an extra charge of 2.75% to cover bank fees on the transaction.
For most moves, we can start first thing in the morning and have you out of your old place by lunch time. You should then be in your new place in the afternoon and you can start unpacking a few essential boxes!
However, If you have lots of belongings or if there’s a lot of travelling to be done between your old and new homes, then we’ll need a bit longer to get you settled into your new place.
