Innovation and development

Protecting your property when you move overseas

At origin and destination, our moving teams use a range of specialist materials to protect floors, staircases, and other vulnerable areas of your home.

Environmentally friendly packing materials

Pickfords is committed to developing export packing materials that are environmentally friendly, can be re-cycled and use sustainable resources.

Specialist fine arts packing

Many of our customers move high value, antique items as part of their consignment. If you choose this option, you can expect a professional packing team to use specialist materials, including edging strips to protect vulnerable edges, bubble wrap to provide cushions of air for added protection, carding to protect fragile glass and mirrors and specialist cartons including picture cartons and crates.


Large items which require more protection during transit can be protected by made to measure wooden crates.

The item is measured and a specialist crate maker will build a crate to fit. The item will then be wrapped with suitable packing materials and then crated and secured prior to loading.
