Moving Star | "The Gentle Touch"

One of the most critical aspects of any move is the quality of the packing. At MovingStar, we choose our packing staff and the quality of our materials with infinite care. As specialists in National and international moving, naturally enough all of our packing teams are fully trained and fully experienced in the delicate art of moving your valued possessions.

All packing takes place in your home using only the best available materials. When our packers arrive the foreman will identify himself and take a short tour of the home with you, to identify any particular items requiring special care and to agree with you a schedule of packing that meets your needs, such as packing the beds last.

All of the materials that we utilize are specifically designed to protect your effects whilst in transit. For example, all furniture is packed in 6 ply wax kraft paper blankets. A layer of corrugated cardboard on top of the blankets then additionally protects any polished furniture.

We have a wide range of cartons available ranging from book, china, lampshade, parts boxes, picture, and linen to layflat wardrobes. In addition, we will use upright wardrobes for hanging clothing for sea or road moves.

Fragile items such as china, glass and ornaments are individually wrapped in either "bubblepack", acid free tissue paper or white paper (depending on the item) and then packed in double wall export cartons.

Any item requiring specialist care such as antiques or paintings will be packed in internal wooden crates measured exactly to fit and protect the individual items.

Each carton and piece of furniture is then individually labeled utilizing our computerized labeling system and then a full packing inventory is compiled.
