During the process of your removal, Britannia is fully aware that storage may be a requirement for a period prior to delivery. Short or long term storage can be provided by Britannia Neaves.
We have over 900 wooden storage containers and can also store loose items such as ladders, carpets and large sofas.
Security is of paramount concern to us and you can rest assured your goods will be looked after whilst in our care. For added security there is an alarm system provided and maintained by a local security firm. We are more than happy for anyone to visit the warehouse and have a tour.
A pre-move survey will be completed when it will be discussed exactly what is to be stored. Following this we will be able to confirm the numbers of containers required.
On the day of removal into store the operatives will bring the containers directly to your home and you can watch the process of loading occur at your front door. All furniture will be wrapped in blankets, a full inventory will be made and the containers sealed on site. This process removes the need for double handling and you can be confident that you know exactly what you have in store and that, unless you need to gain access to the containers, the contents will be delivered out of store in the same containers and are exactly as you last viewed them.
The Britannia group has over forty modern, secure storage centre's throughout the United Kingdom so if you need to store items elsewhere in the country we will have a depot which can be of service.
Our removers are trained to a high level in packing most standard goods. They are also capable of packing unusual, bulky, fragile and valuable items. Britannia packs and transports special belongings using purpose made materials and equipment. You can be sure that we will look after everything, from your glass and chinaware to a grandfather clock or a grand piano.
Having moved thousands of homes over many years, Britannia has built up the necessary experience to be able to cope with removals of all shapes and sizes. Your requirements may differ from other customers and packing is a key area where special needs may apply. By preparing well, listening to our customers and finally having the right materials on hand, Britannia is able to provide a full and secure packing service that reduces wear and tear to your household goods during the course of your move.
During the pre-move survey we will advise whether your effects will be shipped in their own container or as part of a shared load consignment.
Most shipments are loaded into steel shipping containers. Sole use containers will normally be packed outside your home, sealed and transported directly to the docks for shipment. Alternatively, if your move is not big enough to fill a container we will transfer them to our consolidation warehouse where they will be stored safely until being loaded jointly with other loads traveling to the same destination.
Should you wish to move your car along with your household effects, Britannia are able to offer this in either your own sole use container or as part of a shared consignment.
Items required urgently at the destination can be sent by air. Britannia will pack these in to airline approved cartons or cases. For smaller consignments to remote destinations, your effects can be case packed for shared loading.
We will create a detailed tailor-made move plan, including exactly what you want moving and whether the packing team need any special equipment or materials to move large or unusual items. We will make sure that the removal of every single item in your home is included in the plan, even things tucked out of sight in loft spaces or cupboards.
All small items are wrapped in paper then carefully placed in strong cartons. All furniture and larger items are wrapped in multi-layer export grade wrappers. Card can be used for extra protection.
High value or unusual items can be further protected by custom casing.
Once packed all items are marked with name, destination and inventory number.
