Best Packing Services in London

Moving house can be an extremely stressful time, as well as physically exerting if you decide to do it yourself. Ensuring all your furniture, possessions, and valuables are loaded and unloaded into a vehicle and protected from damage in case of accidents is paramount.

It’s for that reason that it’s often better to leave everything to the professionals and let a removals specialist look after things for you. But does your preferred removals business provide packing and unpacking services in London? And are they experts in packing for moving?

This guide explores why it’s best to work with a company that can handle both packing and moving, and explores some of the leading choices in the marketplace.

For those contemplating an international move, understanding the specifics of export packing and its associated costs becomes particularly crucial. Our expertise in this area ensures your belongings are not only safe but also efficiently prepared for crossing borders.

What does a packing company do?

A packing company specialises in ensuring that items are protected when being prepared for storage or transportation. This packing is required because an item is particularly fragile and prone to damage, is especially large or heavy and may pick up damage when moved (such as furniture), or has a high financial or sentimental value that means protecting it is just good common sense.

The best packing companies will use the highest quality materials to ensure maximum protection. They should be fully insured and possess a wealth of experience and expertise to handle and pack items properly. 

Because of the care and attention that a good packing company gives your valuables and possessions, those that also operate as moving packers give you an ideal option that combines packing and transportation into a single quote and project.

Top house packing companies

There are so many different companies offering professional packing services in London that it can be hard to know which to pick, especially if you’re looking for packers for moving. Which is best for you may vary, depending on your circumstances and the nature of the move you’re planning, but four businesses in particular stand out:


Pickfords are one of the most established removals brands in the UK and have centuries of experience in all types of removals – going back to packhorses transporting quarry stone in the 17th century. Today, Pickfords specialises in removals across the UK and internationally, storage and self-store facilities, and wider packages for moving businesses or employees from one location to another.
