A removals company helps people and businesses relocate their goods from one place to another. Typically they use moving vans, but for international moves or where storage is required, they may use shipping containers. Some people obtain packing supplies to pack their household goods themselves to keep their moving costs down. They are called PBOs (packed by owner) by their movers. Because they are not trained to properly pack their things, damages are more prevalent with their shipments and invariably they become disputable after the move.
