Packing and wrapping for a long term storage

At South London Movers, our team are more than happy to pack and wrap your furniture to ensure a professional level of packing and storage. We’ll take each piece, asses its stability and wrap it using bubble wrap as necessary.

Then we’ll place items into the storage containers whilst at your home to aid with transparency and the inventory process.

Long Term Storage Inventories

To guarantee each item returns to you in the condition in which it left your home, we thoroughly inventory each piece and record a ‘state of condition’. This is a general description of the item’s state of repair.

Any scratches and embellishments are recorded, or if the item is in mint condition, we will record that, too. A detailed inventory goes a long way for your peace of mind and we consider it one of the most important steps to packing your furniture.


Whether you have bespoke oak tables, dressers, wardrobes, beds, side tables or flat pack furniture from a well-known Swedish giant, a reputable removals company will help you disassemble and part-disassemble furniture.

For example, we use care and the right tools to make sure your furniture is ready to be stored in an organised way so that on its return to you, reassembly is quick and simple.


We understand that reassembly can be a hassle and difficult to get right. Thankfully, when your team have years of experience handling, dismantling and reassembling furniture, the process can be surprisingly quick.

That’s why a removals company who cares about its customers will always offer to help reassemble your furniture – so you’re not left with a roomful of indistinct pieces of wood, cushions and fixtures to make sense of.

Always ask your removals company in advance about their reassembling policy.

Follow our advice and you can have your furniture stored fuss-free for years to come. To guarantee your belongings are kept in top condition, choose a storage provider with purpose built facilities.

South London Movers are a proud team of professional removers working throughout London. We have over 20 years of experience in all manner of moves and provide purpose-built storage facilities that are available for short-term or long-term leases.

Whether you want to move and store fine works of art, pianos or pieces of furniture, we’ll take care of each piece as though it were our own. Contact us today to find out more or book your storage here.
