Packing Your Possessions For Norway

Packing for your international move is extremely important, ensuring that all goods are packed to a high standard to meet exporting regulations for Norway.

As your movers, we will strive to provide you with a comprehensive plan for exporting your goods to your property in Norway. Typically, this will be completed by large removal vehicles. However, specialist vehicles and modes of transport can play a pivotal role in your international move. Ahead of your move, we will present you with the plan of action to ensure you are happy with the route and set expectations.

There may be occasions when items can require more extensive packing service for more valuable and delicate items. These items will be identified when discussing with your Customer Service Manager, we are renowned for moving antiques, fine art, and valuable items.

It is the Abels team’s responsibility to ensure that the proper precautions are taken into consideration ahead of your move to Norway. This includes using high-quality materials and making you aware of how furniture and goods need to be packaged.

Norway Destination Services

With items moved by Abels Moving Services to Norway, Abels will take care of all aspects of the destination services with our own removal teams on our vehicles.

For the majority of deliveries we use one of our large removal vehicles. In situations were it is necessary to deliver items in Norway by using a smaller delivery vehicle, Abels will make arrangements to transport the items by road in a normal removal delivery vehicle and then tranship to a smaller appropriate vehicle locally in Norway.

Another consideration for delivery is the number of properties located on higher floors needing careful planning for delivery of your items. This can often be in conjunction with the concierge who will confirm the access possibility to the elevator and times approved for access. Some properties may only permit delivery utilising an external elevator.

An Advance Payment Guarantee Scheme operated by the British Association of Removers provides protection for prepayments made by our private customers (consumers) in the unlikely circumstance of Abels ceasing to trade and fulfilling a contract which has been paid for. This used to be provided by IMMI.

Normal service for delivery into Norway includes delivery into rooms of your choosing, unpacking of carton items to a flat surface, set up of normal furniture removal and placement into positions as instructed, disposal of waste packaging materials. Should you prefer, arrangements can be made for a put away service of carton items / maid cleaning / relocation or settling in services – should you have specific requirements, please discuss with your Abels Customer Service Manager or Abels Customer Liaison.
