Plan you house move for a stress free event
Use Removal Boxes To Make Moving Home Easy!
I Some times turn up on jobs and everything is packed in bin liners dont get me wrong they are cheap can keep things clean like bedding pillows clothes cushions teddy bears, soft light items, but when they are used to put 30 or so books in they will tear and things will get damaged, I have even had customers put the contents of kitchen cupboards in bin liners pots pans carving knifes all the cutlery, and when trying to walk holding these bags, if you attempt it, your ankles and thighs will be getting slashed with knifes protruding from bin bags, so they are useful when moving home but only for certain items.

Small Removal Box for packing compact or heavy items like photo albums, CDs, books, dishes, glassware, etc.
Medium Removal Box Use the medium size for packing mid-weight items like kitchen appliances, toys, or shoes.
Large Removal Box Use the large size for packing lighter, bulkier items,
such as towels, bedding, cushions, or clothing if you do not put in bin bags

planning a move can be difficult, but you dont have to give in to the stress. Removal Boxes can help you manage your move like a pro from start to finish.
