HOW WE PACK YOUR GOODS
The standard of packing will greatly depend on the type of removal undertaken (Local, National, European and Overseas) and whether or not the goods are to be transported exclusively in our own vehicles. The removal cartons can be packed by Britannia or be owner packed depending on which option is selected in the quotation. Furniture is wrapped as follows:
LOCAL & NATIONAL
Furniture is generally blanket wrapped on the truck. Blankets provide enough protection on these moves, where the goods stay on the same vehicle with the same staff from start to end. Our vehicles are fully equipped with a sizeable amount of woollen blankets to protect your household contents. We also have quilted covers at your disposal for protecting sofas, armchairs and mattresses in transit and we provide hanging garment carriers for moving clothes the easy way without creasing. Goods coming into storage are wrapped in a similar way unless their final destination is abroad. If the client would like our staff to export wrap certain items of furniture this can be specified in the quotation for you.
Furniture is export wrapped using foam laminated bubble wrap. Our crew will use this versatile material to wrap your antiques, paintings, mirrors, dining table tops, TV's, pianos, lacquered and varnished items of furniture and any other piece of furniture that requires that extra protection. The laminated layer helps prevent the bubble wrap from sticking to the surface and accidentally removing the paint or varnish. We will also wrap your rugs, soft furnishings, large vases, shelving, headboards, chairs and other items. Glass and marble tops that require special care are bubble wrapped and then further protected with thick foam edges. Mattresses are protected with polythene covers to keep them clean at all times.
OUR PACKING MATERIALS
We strongly believe our removal cartons are far superior to others available online and in local establishments. Our cartons are double-walled for extra strength and durability, not wafer thin like others on sale in DIY shops along the coast. Please visit our packaging shop in Mijas close to Fuengirola to be convinced we only sell top quality boxes. You'll find that our prices are clearly on display and we always stock a large quantity in our warehouse. Dimensions of boxes are Height x Length x Depth in centimetres. Prices revised December 2022.

What is a Self-pack?
This practical and versatile box is the ideal solution for people that need to get on with the packing using strong removal cartons delivered to their front door via a courier service. All cartons are sent in a protective usable outer case, not shrink wrapped or loose. This outer case ensures the cartons arrive in optimum condition, not dirty, bent or gauged. This large carton can also be reused for packing pictures, bedding, a flat screen TV, toys, etc. Once packed, the overall volume of the 21 cartons is almost 2 cubic metres or 70 cubic feet. Our price for this Self Pack delivered to anywhere in mainland Spain is 125 Euros + 21% IVA. We accept payment via card or bank transfer. Delivery is within 5 working days.
The Self-Pack contains:

When items are too awkward to move or have a high value we can prepare custom made wooden crates that offer greater protection during transport. We also stock liftvans for international removals, motorcycle cages, skeleton crates and have a wide selection of secondhand crates.
