Packing for your move

Owner Packed

This option assumes that all items are packed and ready for removal when our team arrive. All boxes should be taped closed with which room they are from written on the top of the box, appliances disconnected & furniture disassembled as required. Chiltern Moves recommend using professional packing boxes as these will ensure your effects are protected and enable our team to easily load the removal lorry.

Chiltern Moves offers a wide array of boxes and materials for your move. Please speak to a member of our team to discuss which packing materials we can provide for you.

Full Packing Service

Chiltern Moves are happy to pack all of your effects for you, taking the stress & strain out of your move.

Our courteous & efficient team would usually come to your home the day prior to removal and pack the majority of effects, leaving you the essentials for overnight such as kitchen items, toiletries, clothing & beds. All boxes will be labelled with which room the items were from along with a description of the contents. For example; Kitchen – Glassware or Bedroom 2 – Bedding

If we are disassembling any furniture for you, this would be done along with the packing to ensure your move day is as smooth as possible. The last few items would then be packed on the morning of your move when our team arrive to load your effects.

Fragile Packing Service

For those who would prefer to have their fragile items professionally packed or perhaps don’t have the necessary time to complete all of their packing, then this may well be the option.

Our courteous & efficient team will arrive the day prior to removal and will pack all china, glassware, pictures and mirrors using the highest quality packing materials. All boxes will be labelled with which room the items were from along with a description of the contents. Any fragile items required overnight such as plates, glasses etc, will be packed on the morning of your move.

G Sciales

“I was extremely impressed with your team that moved us on the day. Both their helpfulness and efficiency are to be commended. When we asked them to move an item around there were no complaints just a happy, helpful face. Also at the end of the move they asked if we were happy with where everything was and if not they would be more than happy to move things to where we wanted. I commend you on an excellent moving experience. You made a difficult & hard job look effortless and like you wanted to help us to move, engaging with us on where things should go. What a brilliant team. Well done!”

D Dreyer

“An amazingly quick and highly efficient service from start to finish in 24 hours. We phoned on the Monday and the team were there 8am as promised on the Tuesday all done by 2pm very happy with the team they were most polite and careful with our belongings, a definite recommendation to friends and family.”

C & S Hunt

“We were very impressed and grateful for all the work you did to help our house move go so smoothly. The packing was done very efficiently and carefully by Richard. On the day of the move, which was handled very well indeed by Richard, Martin and Danny, nothing was too much or too little to ask and they were extremely hard working, courteous and professional. We thought the price was competitive and the overall service was excellent, and we would not hesitate to recommend you to friends or family.”


“Thoroughly professional from start to finish. Would be more than happy to recommend – and in fact we already have!”


“We were very impressed with the speed, courtesy and enthusiasm of the removal team. There was a time delay with the final completion but this didn’t phase the team at all, they just organised more help to unload. Also, very importantly, there was no damage or breakages. We could not be more pleased with the experience.”

J Spurr

“The team on the 2 days of our move were simply excellent hard working courteous and nothing was too much trouble. All were a credit to your business and I couldn’t praise them any higher.”

K Hale

“Thanks to Ash and Graham for making moving day a pain free experience! From the first home survey through to the end of moving day the service received was perfect! I cannot speak highly enough of Bedford Moves!”

J Potts

“The team who came to pack were friendly and experts at their task. They had all fragiles packed and 85% of everything else packed on to van ready for the move 2 days later. On moving day it took them 1 hour to finish loading the van. They arrived at the new house early and even helped the outgoing people who were moving themselves, load their van. Unwrapping is now what takes the time.”

R Cole

“Helped to make a stressful experience a pleasant one, and everyone very friendly and helpful.”

A Greaves

“Please convey our sincere thanks to Richard, and the guys (John and Ash) who did a fantastic job of moving us. They were lovely, very friendly, polite, and nothing was too much trouble for them. They really did work extremely hard with professionalism and fully focusing on the task in hand. After they introduced themselves to us, I felt relaxed for the first time in over four months. Brilliant service. I certainly will recommend the company to anyone requiring a competent removal firm. Thanks also to yourself for answering my ten thousand queries and securing a final removal date for us. You have been brilliant.”

C Aldin

“I wanted to say thank you for the great service I received. The packing and move was done by Joe and Nathan on 13 and 14 March and they made the whole stressful experience much easier. They are a great asset to your team, they were polite professional and very attentive. I was very stressed when they arrived but they soon made me laugh put me at ease. I was amazed how quickly they worked and how fast each room was packed and unpacked at the other end. Nothing was too much bother for either of them and they worked really well as a team and were a pleasure to deal with. My friend is moving house shortly and I have suggested she books the same team with your firm.”

C Purvess

“Your service from start to finish was excellent and I cannot identify any areas for improvement. Your team of Peter, John and Simon were the epitomy of high-class cusstomer service. Prompt, polite and well-presented and they handled the whole process with care. I would recommend them to anyone.”
