What won’t we pack?

We’ll pack just about anything. We’re the UK’s shipping and storage experts so we also know what we can’t pack and accept. Here’s a list of stuff that we won’t pack.

  1. Plastic bags, plastic boxes, bin bags, canvas bags and laundry bags unless these are packed inside cardboard boxes;
  2. Suitcases not packed in our suitcase boxes;
  3. Musical instruments in soft cases;

  7. Antiques (breakable and fragile);
  8. Birds, fish, animals or any other living creature;
  9. Explosives, weapons or ammunition;
  10. Any item which emits fumes, smell or odour;
