Fully Wrapped

When moving any furniture item, it’s essential to prevent scratches. We offer this service free of charge for a few of your most precious things; just another benefit of using Big Tuna. If you have lots of items you would like fully wrapped, you may incur a small charge for the cost of the shrink wrap used.

Usually, our movers wrap the furniture into moving blankets as they load it onto the van, which protects against surface damage. However, this method is not always suitable for expensive electronics or high-value furniture such as antiques that are easily scratched, and it is necessary to take further precautions.

Items selected for the fully wrapped services are completely encased within a layer of moving pads and tightly wrapped in multiple layers of shrink wrap; the moving team will ensure that all exposed surfaces are covered.

Requesting Fully Wrapped

  • If there are any specific items you would like fully wrapped, please request this on the booking form when booking your move.
  • The customer can request this service for specific items on the day, providing they have booked enough time for us to conduct the move and wrap selected items.
  • If the moving team feels specific pieces of furniture are at risk, these items will be wrapped without question.

Disconnect / Reconnect (Gas supplies not included)

We offer free appliance disconnect and reconnect services to help ease the stress on moving day, giving you one less thing to worry about. It’s important to note that we are not qualified plumbers. Although we run a quick cycle after connecting your washing machine, we recommend having your appliances checked by a professional plumber for insurance purposes. Then you can start using your washer or dishwasher again.

Requesting Disconnect / Reconnect:

If there are any specific items you would like disconnected or reconnected, please request this on the booking form when booking your move.

Make It Fit (Window Removals Not Included)

Big Tuna will go above and beyond to get your items into your property, including removing property doors or obstructive parts from oversized items if necessary. Plus, every van comes supplied with a complete tool kit, and each of our moving teams includes at least one member who is experienced in engineering–because we believe it’s just as essential to have staff members who are capable and knowledgeable.

This service does NOT include window removals due to the high risk of windows breaking and insurance purposes.

Unless requested otherwise, the customer must ensure that all items that require full or partial disassembly are disassembled before the moving team’s arrival; this is a free emergency service, not a disassembly service.

Requesting Make It Fit

  • We strongly advise measuring your items to ensure they fit before booking your move. This service usually includes minimal work, such as removing property doors and obstructive parts like sofa feet, usually a last resort.
  • If you require a full or partial disassembly service for the disassembly of items such as Beds, Bunk Beds, Wardrobes and other large items, you will be charged; please get in touch with us if you require a disassembly service.
