  • Set up carton by folding in the bottom flaps left and right, do not cross them
  • Tape the bottom of the cartons and around the bottom edges of the carton
  • Use a lot of paper, all breakable items should be wrapped individually in paper.
  • Crumpled paper should be used to cushion the bottom and sides of the carton in which breakables are being packed.
  • Plates should be stacked vertically as if they are in a dish drainer, glasses and stemware should be placed in an upright position
  • Fill all cartons to the top without overfilling, cartons that are not completely filled tend to crush when they are stacked, small spaces at the top can be filled with crumpled paper, or use towels, blankets and similar items.
  • Heavy items should be placed in the bottom of the carton lighter items on the top to prevent damage.
  • Ensure cartons are firm at the top, fold in flaps in the same manner as the bottom and seal with tape.
  • Mark the carton with you name on a side and the top, the room and a brief description of the contents for easy placement at delivery.

This has been my second major move with iMove on one year. The first time my entire household was sent from Dorset in the UK to Phuket in Thailand. And my second move was my return back to the UK. IMove is a down to earth , easy to contact, "easy to communicate with" company. Every issue I had was dealt with promptly , kindly and patiently. The telephone system has immediate access to a real person at the end of the phone, who puts you through immediately to the person you need. Their comeback and answers are instant. Nikki Searle who managed my entire move was amazing....very calm with no hype or drama. And extremely flexible. Out of my many, many moves it was my second totally stress free move. ( My first stress free move was the initial one that iMove did for me last year.)!!!!! The packing team who packed me up in Phuket were amazing. Totally respectful. They worked calmly and quietly. And the team who unpacked me here in UK were extremely kind and considerate. I would absolutely recommend iMove! I wish I had known about them before. My thanks go very especially to Nikki here in UK, to her lovely unpacking team, and to Kh.Gene and the packing team in Thailand. Thank you all for another wonderful move.
Excellent service throughout from initial enquiries and quotes, packing, loading, delivery and unloading. Everybody was prompt, friendly, helpful and professional. Would recommend Imove to anybody - good price too!
Good job on time
