Full Packing Service

Our packers bring a high level of expertise to packing that will ensure the safety of these items.

Packing up your house yourself before the removal men arrive is certainly cheaper than hiring the removal men to pack as well and many people might think house packing services is an unnecessary expense.

With certain items you may be right, however, when it comes to the more valuable items and breakables such as glass and crockery, professional packing can make the difference between success and disaster.

For anything valuable or breakable, specific materials will need to be hired regardless of whether you use a house packing service or not and in a lot of cases, there is surprisingly quite an art to removal packing.

Our packers will carefully pack all your treasured possessions using protective packing materials

Whether it’s your straightforward Mahogany, Victorian glass-fronted cabinet or your marble Rhinoceros sculpture with painfully thin tusks and ears, the item can incur anything from scratches to decapitation if it is not packed properly.

At Jorvik Removals, our packers bring a high level of expertise to packing that will ensure the safety of these items.

Packing services requirements differ from house to house and sometimes there will be very little reason for house packing services. In other cases, it will be essential and it is always worthwhile to get some advice from us.

Expert Loading

We will get in touch with you prior to moving day to remind you of the service. Ensure that there’s a convenient parking space for the movers to position their vehicle. Upon meeting them, you can discuss any special requests you might have, such as what already packed belongings you wish to go first in the removals van or whether some boxes need to be handled with extra care.

The removals crew will get on with the job expertly and load and secure your items carefully onto the moving truck. They’ve got all the necessary equipment and gear to carry out even emergency moving services while you sit back and watch.

Secure Transportation

Whether you’re within the UK or you are venturing out for good to an EU country, rest assured that your movable property is in safe hands. The removals service is fully insured if your items are packed by our professionals. As long as you leave the packing to us, your items will be comprehensively covered during the A to B transportation process.

The teams are equipped with reliable GPS systems, allowing them to deliver your furniture, personal belongings or commercial equipment in the shortest time frame possible via a direct route to your new address. It’s that easy and simple! Just secure a convenient parking spot for the moving team at the delivery location.

Smooth Unloading

We will do our best to transport the load to your new address as quickly as possible, subject to traffic. Upon delivery, the unloading of your items will be done with the same care, diligence and attention to detail as the loading process was carried out. Your items will be safely taken off the truck and moved into the property in a secure and efficient manner.

The removals crew will place each and every box in their designated room (according to your labelling system). Upon request, they will assemble any dismantled pieces of furniture for you at no extra cost.

  • Royston

    The company keep in touch with you right up to the day of moving. I received a call on the morning of the move just to make sure everything was OK and ready for the guys. I was given a time of 10am but the guys arrived 15 minutes earlier. They were very careful not to damage anything and wasted no time in getting things on to the removal van. The guys were so friendly and courteous. When unloading the van they were just as careful. The whole removal was completed in 1 hr 30 mins. That was including a 35 mile journey. I would recommend this company to anyone.

    Very happy with the two people who came to do the removals, very professional and efficient. They handled all our furniture with care and everything was strapped down and covered in protective blankets where they thought it was necessary. I'd definitely recommend them to anyone I know who're moving

    Jorvik removals and storage are brilliant, they arrived when they said they would and worked solidly packing all my boxes and items onto the vans. The team were excellent, friendly, professional and fun. They moved items as requested and did an excellent job at the other end. It was a cold miserable day but they were cheerful. Melissa coordinated the move seamlessly and the company are definitely to be recommended.

    Dear Melissa. I cannot praise your moving guys enough. Matthew and Lewis were very polite, neat and extremely efficient. No job too big. Thank you very much, the move went very well.
    Unfortunately they seem to have forgotten their tools for dismantling furniture here (3 smallish, heavy boxes). Do they have a job in this area soon to be able to fetch them? If you like I could post them to you and you could reimburse me for the postage. Kind regards, Jeanette M

    If we had spent thousands of pounds on a big name removal company we would not have had better service! Honestly, I cannot recommend Jorvik enough.
    Melissa gave us a call the day before the move to double-check all the details.
    On the day we had Melvyn & Daniel who just got on and emptied the house they were very friendly and efficient and packed all our items with the utmost care!
    We will definitely be recommending to friends & family.
    Many Thanks once again Jorvik

    What can I say? A great team of lads that know how to get the job done. I had tonnes and tonnes of stuff to move and not once did they complain. They helped with our big move to Barnsley even though they’d been on the job all day. We appreciated the hard work and totally recommend anyone to use their services
