Furniture Storage Darlington

Over the years, we have learned to perfect our trade, and ensure the highest level of care when handling your furniture and additionally protect your property from undue damage in the process. It is for this reason that we utilize a mix of furniture removal blankets and cast stretch wrap to ensure the safe handling of your furniture during your removal process. This is especially effective whilst handling goods such as wardrobes and chest of drawers upstairs and through restricted hallways. Because the cast stretch wrap prevents any unnecessary movement during handling that allows us to focus on controlling the goods and planning where we are going more effectively.

Additionally, whilst larger items such as Suites, Sofas and armchairs are in our storage facility, these are covered in blankets and wrapped in cast stretch wrap to protect them from dust and humidity during their time with us.
