One of our Move Managers will contact you to discuss your requirements in more detail and, once you have been visited by one of our Surveyors, will then provide a free quotation.
Packing and Unpacking
Our moving and storage teams are experts: they learn their skills at our dedicated training centre, where they practice on our furniture, not yours!
Our customers know that we handle everything with care. They appreciate that we will safely pack and move their most valued possessions, from their state-of-the-art sound system to antique furniture and glass, and from fragile china to that worn but well-loved teddy bear.
We offer a wide range of professional packing and unpacking options, so you should be able to find one that suits both your needs and your budget.
Making the choice
Full pack – For a stress-free move, choose Cadogan Tate’s full packing service. We will pack absolutely everything for you, as well as dismantling and reassembling any furniture where required.
Part pack – We will pack just your fragile and breakable items. We will then provide a Flat Surface Unpack service at your new premises.
Self pack – If you prefer to do everything yourself, this is the option to choose. We will supply the boxes and materials prior to your move. You can then pack all of your items, writing on the side of each box where it needs to go in your new home. (Please note that if you select this option we will not be able to accept liability for any loss or damage to self packed items).
Moving within the UK - Clothing will be transported in specially designed wardrobe boxes. Chests of drawers can be transported complete with their contents.
Moving abroad - Clothing and linen will be packed and shipped in smaller, specially designed lay-flat cartons. Furniture will be packed separately.
Special requirements - Items such as pianos, safes and clocks will be prepared for transport by our professionally trained staff. Fragile items and valuables will be carefully wrapped and packed. We use high quality packing materials and employ special packing techniques for each item.
Although we pack quickly and efficiently, we take great care and pay attention to detail throughout. We know that the things that are personally important to you may not always be the most valuable items.
Please note that we can only provide unpacking services when we have also carried out the packing.
Full unpack and put away service – This option provides the highest level of service. You work out in advance where the contents of every box or item will go in your new home and label it precisely. Our team will unpack and will make sure that everything is in its proper place. If required, we can also provide furniture and bed reassembly and placement.
Full unpack onto surfaces – We unpack everything that we have packed onto flat surfaces. Kitchen items will be put onto kitchen surfaces; china onto the dining room table; bedding and clothing onto beds; and hanging clothes into wardrobes.
Limited unpack – With this option, we only unpack your fragile items onto flat surfaces.
Self unpack – You take responsibility for unpacking all of your items.
