Declutter before the packers arrive

A company like JHB Removals will tailor-make your quote based on your packaging requirements.

They ask: 

  • Do you want us to pack and supply your boxes? 
  • Do you need specialised wrapping for your appliances and furniture items? 
  • Do you need crating done for a large item such as paintings, mirrors, or even a piano?

You’re moving home, exciting right? OK, and also super stressful. Your to-do list goes on and on and on. And then, to make things worse, everyone keeps asking: “Have you started packing yet?” And what if you haven’t?  Who could blame you with all you still have to do before handing over your current house to new owners? 

But it doesn’t have to be this stressful. Because you can ask: What moving company packs for you?

And the answer, of course, is your full-service
Johannesburg moving company.

Firstly, you can expect the movers to bring all the packaging and protective materials. Hurray! Now you don’t need to go scrounging at the back of your local supermarket. Expect the packers to get the job done quickly and efficiently. They’re trained to pack up an entire household in a fraction of the time it would take you. 

You can rest assured fragile items such as glassware and china will be expertly wrapped and safely packed. The same goes for wall art and mirrors. If you have large or unusually shaped items like a piano or a chandelier that need special packaging such as crating, the packers will see to that. Antiques will receive the same careful attention.

Packers are also experts at dismantling large, heavy, unwieldy items for safe wrapping and transport. They will reassemble at your destination. What a relief for you! You can also expect the supervisor to keep an inventory of the items packed. They will also label boxes according to the original rooms in which the items were found.

Remember also that there is unlikely to be any dispute about a moving company paying for damages if they have packed your items themselves. Packers can also help you unpack at your new home. All you do is tell them where the items need to go. 


What about the empty boxes? No need to worry. Packers will ensure that all the wrapping and boxes are cleaned away. 

Expect professional packers to wrap and pack whatever you have left in your house, quickly! And, remember, you’re paying for every item wrapped, packed and transported. So, if you no longer want or need certain things, toss them or donate.
