Having the right packing materials is crucial to orchestrating a successful move
Ollands only use the highest quality packing materials from our local trusted suppliers. We reuse our cartons as many times as possible.
Once they are no longer fit for purpose for our removals, we use them as protection in our wooden storage containers or when we are loading shipping containers.
We export wrap large quantities of items for shipping containers and other modes of transport. We use a recyclable material of paper blanket.
