Get Boxes

McQueens Removals hire out specialist hard bodied plastic removal boxes with lids, for just £1 a box; they are sturdy, stackable and won’t go mushy if they are set down on a wet day. We also hire out wardrobe boxes.


Start Packing

Start packing up your belongings. Mark boxes clearly with:
• Location – Kitchen
• Contents – Pots & Pans
• Priority – “Open First”
• Handling – Fragile

McQueen’s Removals goal is to minimise hassle for you and maximise convenience for you, so whenever possible, we will always make every effort to place boxes mark by room or obvious description e.g. pans, will be placed in the relevant room.
