Your Calvert consultant will help you choose the service delivery that best meets your needs, explain what to expect when you arrive at your new destination and answer all of your questions. Together, you will choose and schedule a packing day(s).
In terms of International relocations, it must be remembered that many countries are no longer accepting shipments that were packed by owner. In addition, any damage incurred to items you packed yourself may not be covered by transit protection. Therefore, it is suggested that you let Calvert pack your household items. The crew is professionally trained and have years of experience packing people’s precious belongings.
At Calvert we offer both long term and short term storage at exceptionally competitive rates.
You can phone in at any time during the day or night as all our vehicles are under 24-hour tracker surveillance. In addition, all our crew are equipped with cellular telephones to insure that we know where your goods are at all times.
Each item is wrapped in craft paper before being rolled into strips of corrugated cardboard which creates a tube or cylinder effect. The finished tube creates a cushioning effect at each end of the packages which provides maximum protection against any downward pressure on the carton. This is a highly recommended technique for fragile items.
There is no time limit as to how long you require storage. However, one month’s notice is required for the releasing of your goods out of store.
Calvert Removals are preferably booked between 7-days before the expected move takes place. For international relocations ideally at least 21-days notice is required. Please always try to give us as much notice as possible. However, in the case of emergencies and so forth, we will do our utmost to cater to your timing needs.
For larger moves it’s always ideal for us to visit your home and determine the cost of your move, as it depends on numerous factors such as packing, access, size of consignment, number of staff etc. With this information we can compile an accurate quotation tailored to your individual move

Gas cylinders cannot be transported on our vehicles unless purged. Flammable liquids, however contained, must not be submitted for removal either. These items are not covered under our insurance, other arrangements must be made. Equipment such as garden mowers and chainsaws should be drained of all liquids beforehand.
It is always better to be ‘Safe than Sorry,’ unfortunately accidents do happen now and again as much as we don’t want them to.
