useful information

We’ve put the following FAQs together to answer the most common questions:

How soon should I contact you to arrange a quotation?

As soon as you know you are going to be relocating, don’t leave this to the last minute. We are happy to visit you as soon as you would like and our quotations are valid for up to 3 months.

How do I go about getting a quote?

To provide an accurate written quotation we would always recommend that our surveyor visits you to ascertain exactly what you have to be moved and to go through all of your requirements with you. This is a free service without obligation and can be arranged for anytime to suit you.

How does the surveyor calculate my removal fee?

We treat each quotation individually and base the price on your specific needs. These include the type of vehicle and the size of team we need. There may also be other factors, such as having to remove furniture via a window.

What Is Included In the quotation?

Your quotation will be built around your particular requirements which are discussed at the time of our surveyor visiting.

Do you offer any additional services?

Yes we can quote to include additional services, such as:

·         Unpacking

·         Aftercare

·         Disposal of unwanted items

·         Dismantling and reassembly of furniture

If there is anything else you think we may be able to help with, please feel free to ask. All of the above are chargeable.


When I am ready to book, how much notice do I need to give?

We recommend that you book your removal as soon as possible. Once you start to talk dates with your solicitor and other people in the chain, it is possible to make a provisional booking with us – which we would then endeavour to hold for you free of charge until you exchange contracts and are then in the position to confirm the booking with us.

If for some reason, you are unable to give us advance warning, we will always do everything we can to try and accommodate you.

When do I need to pay?

For household removals we DO require (terms and conditions apply) a deposit of 10% once you have exchanged contracts the balance is payable on the move day.

For commercial removals we will send an invoice once the move is complete, our payment terms are 28 days.

How do I pay?

We accept all major cedit and debt cards, Bacs payment, cheques and cash on the day.

Will I have a dedicated contact?

Yes, you will be assigned your own removal co-ordinator who will oversee your removal from start to finish.

What will you do with my…….?

Hanging Clothes
Portable clothes rails will be on our vehicle on move day, our team will transfer your clothes straight from your wardrobe onto the rails and then on delivery, hang everything back in your wardrobes. These robes are available for purchase if required, if for example you do not have wardrobes at your new home yet.

Flat Screen Television
Most households now own a large flat screen television, if you have the original box great, if not please disconnect/take down from the wall and our team will carefully protect this for you using our specialist covers.

We have specialist sofa covers which are put on sofas/armchairs in your home before they are moved. Mattresses – we have bags and covers to protect these.

Our removals team will wrap these in blankets for you however if you would also like to bubble wrap these that’s fine too.

Folded Clothes/Linen
They can be left in drawers and our removals teams will remove the drawers to move the furniture safely. You may like to cover the top of the clothes with some packing paper for added protection.

Will you protect my carpets/flooring?

Yes we have specialist covers which will be placed on all your floors and carpets where required.

How do I obtain packing boxes and materials?
