We are happy to offer you our packing service for the packing of all cabinet contents and small items. If you would like to take over the packing of the boxes yourself, please pay attention to a few basic things that we recommend for moving advice.
Label each box indicating the contents or the room name. The boxes will be distributed by our employees, according to this information, in the correct rooms, so that the box with the pots is in the kitchen and the box with the laundry in the bedroom; and not vice versa. This will save you a lot of time and unnecessary work searching for the right box.
Moving boxes should not weigh more than 20 kg when packed. Remember that each box must be carried and stowed on the truck. Moving boxes are always carried by only one employee. After all, you will also have to move and stack the packed cartons in the apartment. It is recommended to pack the boxes only half full with heavy items (e.g. books, china or similar) and then fill them up with light items (linen, sofa cushions, etc.). By the way, please pack the box so that the side carry handles remain free!
Damage to plates can be avoided if you pack them standing up rather than lying down in the moving boxes. Always make sure there is adequate padding between dishes and glasses. When you gently shake the finished packed carton, there should be no clanking sound under any circumstances.
In the case of books, the “open”, i.e. unbound pages should never be packed against each other to prevent the pages from buckling. Very high-quality books are best additionally wrapped in packing paper. Please pay particular attention to the weight of the books. We will be happy to provide you with suitable materials for packing, such as packing silk, wrapping paper, etc.
You can use newsprint as a filler between the already packed goods. Please note, however, that the printing ink stains very easily. Bubble wrap is not suitable for packing dishes and glass.
Please note that insurance companies do not accept liability for the contents of boxes that you pack yourself. You are welcome to book partial packing of your household goods with us. For example, you can pack the “unbreakable” items yourself and have us pack the dishes, china, etc.
Items that do not fit into the moving boxes due to their size will be professionally packed by our staff. All glass furniture parts, e.g. glass table tops, glass shelves etc. should always be packed by our employees.
Leave the packing of pictures, paintings and mirrors to our employees. They are specially trained for this and have both the necessary knowledge and the right materials.
If you still want to pack these items yourself, make sure that the corners and edges are properly secured, in order to eliminate the greatest sources of danger. Paintings must always be double packed, i.e. with bubble wrap and picture boxes.
