When you have gone through your home before you as you are planning your upcoming house removals you will see various items that may require some special handling. Of course there are some items that a house removals company will not move for safety reasons such as hazardous materials such as cans of gasoline or paint thinner. They may not be willing to take cans of paint either. So you should not be thinking of how to pack these items.
But you may have other items that will require special packing such as unopened bottles of wine or liquor. Or you may be packing up a lot of artwork or stained glass windows. You may have a large collection of decorative glass or porcelain dolls. If these are not easily replaceable items you should take some care in how you pack them. Of course you can have the house removals company do this packing for you. They will charge you an hourly rate for however many packers they think you need to complete the job.
But you can be certain that when the moving company packs up your goods they will use far more packing material and boxes then you would ever use. The reason is that when they pack your goods they also take responsibility for the safe arrival of your goods. This means that those items they packed for you are their responsibility. However any items you pack yourself you are responsible for. So you cannot make a claim against the insurance and blame the breakage on them when items within the boxes you packed break.

In some cases your own house insurance may cover your goods in transit. You would need to contact your house insurance agent to see if you have this type of coverage. And when you choose the insurance to cover your goods during the move you should make that choice carefully also because you have some options here also.
If you are packing your collections that are not easily replaceable you will need to use something like a dish pack that has a double walled corrugated box with hinged hand holds at the side. You can also buy a partition pack to go inside of it. This box is approximately 18″ x 18″ x 24″ and is very sturdy. Besides using a specialty box you will also need lots of packing paper. Of course you can use newspaper but remember newsprint is dirty and it may transfer to the items you are packing. It certainly will make your hands filthy and everything you touch may have dark smudges on it.
