Moving with Us in 4 Easy Steps!
We feel it is important that you know exactly what your moving costs will be upfront with no nasty surprises. Our surveyor will conduct a detailed pre-move survey to ascertain the volume of effects being moved.
The surveyor will visit your home and note any items you want to transfer. There will also be an opportunity to discuss any special requirements or questions you may have.
Once the consultation has been carried out, a free no obligation written quotation will follow within 48 hours. Our quotation will outline exactly what is covered, as per your instructions and a price.
If you are not quite at the stage of wanting to receive a home visit you can still take advantage of our Guesstimate tool. Just complete the quick estimate form on our website to get an approximate idea of the costs involved.
Having been specialists in removals for so long, we can assure you that there is nothing we have not moved before. You can rest assured that your personal belongings will be well protected and safe throughout the transportation process.
When you choose the option of a full packing service, everything will be wrapped, packed and listed on a detailed inventory before being loaded onto the vehicle. A copy of the inventory will follow shortly after.
