How to pack

Dear All,

I just wanted to tell you all what a great packing team you have! They are very professional and passionate in what they do. Their knowledge of 'how to pack' (I am no expert) is remarkable.

Once again, as always, they have outdone themselves! I/we are extremely impressed.

It all went very smoothly and only took 4.5 hours. Please let them know how satisfied we are.

I hope we are getting the same chaps at TEFAF Maastricht to help with the unpacking.

Best wishes,

Meticulously done

Hi Kay,

I received the paintings and eventually figured out how to open the crate! I don’t have a lot of experience in shipping art, but I have to say that your packing was so meticulously done. Very impressive.... Needless to say all paintings arrived intact, so many thanks for your great work.

Best regards,

Thank you very much for, as usual, accurate and highly professional action. Great to work with you, feels like a team.

Pass my thanks to Ms. Raquel, as well, please.

Beautifully packed

Dear Aalish,

You are so kind to follow the outcome to the finish. Yesterday, the crate arrived (one day ahead of schedule). It was packed beautifully and both items were perfect. The drawings are wonderful and very treasured, especially the little Rousseau. The framing and matting are perfect.

Perfect and Professional

Dear James,

I can't thank you and your team enough for the perfect and professional delivery of my chattels. Matthew and companions were very helpful and what seemed overwhelming at the start, was made so easy by their calm approach and excellent hanging of my pictures.

What a dream team

Thank you for everything this week. I had such a good time installing Sowing Colour. What a dream team! You, Martha, Kathleen, Andy, and the KPAK boys - I wish we could repeat! It was a memorable mix of professionalism, creativity and kindness. I’ll never forget it.

Best wishes,

a marvellous job regarding the thrones

Dear Kim.

Please excuse my lateness in sending the attached letter by email but our Clerk is currently away.

Your firm did a marvellous job regarding the thrones and once erected they look fantastic. We had Steve Chapman from the Upholders Company to come in and dress them and then dismantle them just before you collected them Attached is a photo for you files!

Once again a big thank-you to you and Sian for making this all happen

With my very best wishes


thank you and your team for making the move as painless as it was

Dear James,
First and foremost, thank you and your team for making the move as painless as it was. They could not have been more accommodating, helpful, willing or courteous.

UK Private Collector – National House Move

our preferred carriers both nationally and internationally

As House Manager and Personal Assistant to an American lady who had the misfortune to experience a house fire in her substantial home, we were introduced to K Pak Ltd. as preferred carriers to the company commissioned to undertake the restoration of the furniture and works of art damaged by the fire within the house.

The appropriate care was taken under the filthy conditions of a property drenched by water and filthy with soot, to try to collect together all the pieces of these works of art, some charred out of all recognition and others in a state of extreme fragility. The whole household was impressed by the diligence, friendliness, punctuality and long working hours undertaken by the whole team.

At a later stage when it was decided to move the household back to the USA, it was no surprise that we asked for a quotation from K Pak to undertake this. Their quotation was the lower of two and so we proceeded to pack and fill three forty foot containers. This entailed a great deal of cross referencing with inventories and insurance schedules.

All was received in USA safely by members of the same team that packed it all, following processing of export permits, where required, and clearance through US customs. We all could not have been happier and K Pak have helped us since clearing the contents of a London apartment back to USA, followed by arranging various other shipments for which we happily continue to use K Pak. Now our preferred carriers both nationally and internationally.
