Packing For The Big Move

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure…”

Taking the extra time to prepare all your valuables will ensure a hassle free experience after arrival.  Here are some tips to help speed things up:


  • Soft packing materials protect polished surfaces
  • Padded kraft paper covers exterior of piece
  • Boxed in cardboard for stronger support where needed
  • Fragile items are crated, as necessary.

Small fragile items

  • From glassware to china, large or small, each item is individually wrapped, cushioned and carefully boxed prior to shipment.

Large fragile items

  • Tissue and corrugated bubble wrap for added protection
  • Contour packing allows for safer handling and space-efficient loading
  • Custom crating provides maximum protection where needed.


  • Laydown cartons keep clothes flat and saves space
  • Upright wardrobes let coats and suits remain hanging in transit
  • Tissue paper between layers of clothing
  • Items should be clean and dry prior to packing.

Audio-visual items

  • Sensitive electronic items such as televisions are protected by using non-static cushioning materials that provide protection in transit.


  • Always custom-packed
  • Grand pianos are disassembled for transit
  • Extra care is taken to accommodate heavy weight and delicate inner mechanism
  • Note: pianos should be tuned two weeks after delivery.


  • Always rolled, not folded (length permitting)
  • Wrapped with porous material to allow rugs to breathe
  • Desiccant packets are used to keep carpets moisture-free
  • Note: rugs should be clean and dry prior to packing.

Special items

  • Packing is customized for items with delicate and irregular structures
  • Items are padded and reinforced to protect vulnerable areas
  • Crates are made to measure and used for select items that are fragile, extremely heavy or of high value.


  • Automobiles are securely braced into steel containers
  • Motorcycles are transported in custom-built crates
  • Batteries are disconnected and fuel tanks are drained, according to regulations.


  • Specialized door-to-door service
  • Quick transport minimizes stress to animal
  • Knowledge of quarantine and customs in each country ensures an easier transition for both pet and family.
