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.

Why move to Chelmsford?
Credited as the ‘birthplace of radio’ following the opening of the world’s first radio factory back in 1899 by Guglielmo Marconi, Chelmsford continues to pioneer its way into the history books and recently achieved city status, the only place in Essex to achieve this feat.
Airwaves aside, the recent boom in house building has bolstered the town’s prospects as a commuter belt city of choice. Combining suburban community life with idyllic countryside escapes, Chelmsford is a mere 35 minutes commute by rail to London Liverpool Street.
Analysis of home moves by My Home Move places Chelmsford as the number one relocation destination for downsizers and disgruntled London renters, ahead of nearby Southend and up market Tonbridge in Kent.
Popular with families, Central Park situated in the town centre, has pleasant riverside walks and good cycle lanes. Hylands Park also hosts annual music festivals which sees people from all corners of the country flock to the Essex countryside for the thrill of mud, beer and good music.
The city centre has also been subject to a serious face-lift and offers a wide range of shops and amenities. Moulsham Street showcases many fine old buildings and independent shops and the indoor market has a good mix of stalls including a butcher and a cheese shop, and lots of second-hand and vintage stalls, some of which have been established for over 800 years.
With good schools, excellent amenities and viable transport links for work, Chelmsford is a rapidly expanding city with excellent future prospects, all the while retaining that close village feel and strong sense of community.
