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 Great Dunmow?
Great Dunmow (meaning ‘Meadow on the Hill’) is a historic market town in the Uttlesford district of Essex and lies on the River Chelmer.
The second Halifax Rural Areas Quality of Life Survey ranked the Uttlesford District as the 4th best place to live in the UK out of 114 rural authority areas surveyed.
This long-standing market town is steeped in history and sharp on individuality with a high street full of great independent shops and businesses.
The town has a fantastic mix of rural charm and character with many old buildings which have survived from the medieval period, including the sixteenth-century town hall which is now a Grade II listed building.
The town is probably best known for the Flitch Trials, which take place every four years.
This ancient tradition has been upheld for hundreds of years. Couples have to convince a jury they have not argued during the last year and if they succeed, they win a flitch of bacon.
Great Dunmow benefits from excellent transport links including railway connections to London Liverpool Street.
The district is just an hour’s drive from London and under the flight path of Stansted airport.
