Frequently Asked Questions

You are transporting your precious possessions out of one house into the elements, into a back of a van and then delivering them to your new home, the last thing you need is your box letting you down, by falling apart, crumpling or simply not stacking.
Moving boxes are much stronger than most other boxes so our motto is, “use the box designed for the job.”
Our boxes also include an address label so you write where to put your box in your new home, saving you lots of time and effort – or having to open each box before you take it to it’s final room.

The worst culprit is buying protection for your mattresses. You sleep 8 hours a night on your mattress and now it going to be introduced to the outside elements as well as the back of the moving van, so it’s important to protect them.
We sell mattress protectors in Single, Double and king sizes – they are like big envelopes so you slide your mattress in and seal the end bit. We only use double layered strong brown paper mattress protectors as they are breathable and keep your mattress from sweating.
