Packing and Crating

handle with care

When you move your home or office with Move One your goods are always packed, transported and stored with meticulous care. Move One has been helping individuals, and families relocate locally and around the world for more than 25 years. More than 75% of our business comes from repeat customers and recommendations.

We understand how stressful relocating your family and the moving process can be so we do everything we can to make the move easy and predictable.

When it’s not just a box

We believe in our slogan and understand packing for local and especially international moves are complex and require a great deal of specialist attention and we don’t entrust the packing of your goods to just anyone.

Our moving teams and partners are trained to the highest standards in the industry and adhere to the FIDI (Fédération Internationale des Déménageurs Internationaux) Packing standards.

We pack quickly and efficiently but always ensure that our crews understand that the safety of your goods is their ultimate objective. Move One surveyors and your Move Coordinators will take pictures of your fragile items and discuss the various protection options from wooden crating to special handling.

We offer a range of professional paciking and unpacking options to meet any need and budget.

Full unpack “mirror service” Option

This is the highest level and most convenient option you can choose. Once your goods are packed and labeled your Move One crew or FIDI partner will completely unpack, reassemble furniture and place goods to the desired location. All the used packing supplies will then be taken away directly after unpack.

Standard Unpack to flat surface

We unpack all your goods and place onto flat surfaces. For example: Kitchen items and dishes will be unpacked to counters space or tables, bedding and clothes will be unpacked and placed onto beds or counters and hanging items will be placed in closets. All the used packing supplies will then be taken away directly after unpack. Many customers find this option preferable as they want to get a “feel” for their new home before final placement of goods.

Move One handling only the delivery of your goods. If Move One is handling only the delivery of your goods and acting as “destination agent” Please note that this is the standard service most likely offered by the company that booked or arranged packing of your shipment. Move One can offer upgraded “mirror options”, maid and handyman services with prior approval.

Limited Unpack

With this option, we unpack only your fragile items, placing them onto flat surfaces.

Self Unpacking

With this option you take full responsibility for unpacking and assembly of your items.

Should you wish to engage Move One for handyman, technical (installation of white goods, changing plugs, etc) or maid and cleaning services your Move Coordinator will assist your schedule.

For International Shipping you or your nominated representative will need to be present to confirm if all boxes / pieces on your packing list have been received. You should also make note on your packing list of any visible damage to exterior packing.
