Default shipping goods from GTA, ON to UK

1. Is anybody thinking of using those large plastic boxes, called 'totes' here, to pack their goods. I thought this was a good idea, using the wheeled ones for the heavy stuff and heavily duct taping them all to keep them closed. I was wondering if removal companies accept such boxes and if they do if there is a limit on size, or if I would be obliged to use their own packaging.

2. Is anybody, like me, having to put their goods into storage when they reach UK? I shall be looking for accommodation and won't have a UK delivery address for the removal company until I find somewhere to live. Is is better to store the goods in Canada or to store the goods in UK? I thought the latter a better idea because once I find accommodation my stuff could be delivered in a very short time rather than wait for it to arrive from Canada.

By 'goods' I mean mainly personal items. I would sell my furniture before departure.

I see Pickfords have storage available but are probably one of the most expensive removal companies to use. Don't want to start asking for quotes at this time because I would not be moving until beginning next year. Just trying at moment to glean as much info. as poss.
