Custom Crates for Removals of your most fragile and valuable possessions

Custom Crating for Moving your most fragile and valuable possessions


There is a lot to think about when you decide to move house. Once you have found your dream home it is time to think about getting all your belongings there safely. We can spend so much time thinking about the logistics of moving the big things like furniture, white goods etc. that it is easy to overlook some of the more fragile items which might need a little extra care.


Why these things matter to us

Every home contains items that have special value. They may have monetary value or they may be of sentimental value. Very often these things can be quite fragile and need extra attention when packing. Moving house can be a stressful time and once you reach your destination you want it to feel like home as quickly as possible. That’s why it is so disappointing if you arrive and discover that your favourite vase or painting has been damaged in transit.


The kind of things that need a little extra care include antiques and family heirlooms such as china ornaments or works of art as well as bulky items such as pianos, antique furniture or large paintings.


Electrical equipment also needs to be transported with extra care for different reasons. Computers, laptops, and tablets, in particular, must be packed correctly. For one thing, these items are easily broken and expensive to replace or repair. In addition to that, they might also contain irreplaceable data ranging from college work to family photographs. It is of course always recommended to back up data before packing up these items but, in reality, that is not always practical.


Musical instruments are another item that needs careful packing. These may or not be worth a lot of money but they are delicate and are often their owner’s prized possession so they definitely need a bit of extra care.
