Our expertise in packing and unpacking for removals
Our expertise in removal packing and unpacking is rooted in many generations of operation in the industry and accommodates both home and office relocation. Our staff are experts equipped with specialist packing and unpacking techniques.
This means that no matter how soft, fragile, heavy, or intricately shaped the items you need packed or unpacked are, 123 Logistics will deliver with efficiency.
A pre pack service is when the company comes to your home prior to the removal (generally the day before) and packs all of your personal effects (yes even Tupperware) into cartons, ready for the removalist to pick up on your uplift date.
At 123 Logistics, we strongly recommend not using these for packing. They are not designed for travel and as such are prone to breaking, They do not spread weight evenly and are often made of flimsy material. Pack into cartons instead.
If cartons are not packed to the top, they will compress when stacked upon and this may lead to damage to items packed in the carton. Like wise, if there is room for compression on the sides, crushing can occur.
No. There are many different types of tape and the appropriate tape should be used. Masking tape, whilst useful around the home, will not hold a carton together or closed during a removal.
Self assembly furniture (flat pak) should be disassembled. The screws and fastenings that are used to hold these items together do not stand up to the rigours of interstate travel.
We handle every aspect of your packing, from the utensils to the bedding, from the sturdy to the fragile, and from the light to the heavy.
With our packing service for fragile items, we can spare you the risks. We sort and tag everything, use export wrapping for items like antiques and polished furniture, wrap and crate delicate movables when necessary, and even create bespoke packs for items with unusual shapes.
We do not only sort, pack, and tag. We also unpack. It does not matter where in South Africa you are relocating to. If we pack and moved your belongings, we will unpack them for you too.
