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.

Jersey is the largest of the Channel Island archipelagos, situated in the Bay of St Malo between England and France. A self-governing island with its own financial and legal systems, but protected by the UK as a Crown Dependency, it mostly attracts high net worth individuals through its generous tax regimes. Families and retirees are attracted by the slower pace of life, tight knit community and extensive coastal walks along the beach.
The island is far from just a tax haven however and is awash with country walks, coastal driving routes, boat trips and water sports galore. Memorable food experiences overlooking the marina, historic nautical pubs to relax in and live music venues, including the Weekender Festival mean you are never short of fun things to see and do in Jersey.
Due to its southerly location, Jersey enjoys warmer summers and milder winters. It is said that the sea is never more than ten minutes away no matter where you stand. Expats be warned however that finding a property can be extremely difficult, and while not impossible most expats choose to rent beforehand which can prove costly.
With heritage discoveries on your doorstep and miles of beaches and bays to explore, how will you spend your island time?
If you are a British citizen or a national of a Member State of the EU, you do not need a work permit to get a job on the island.
Jersey enjoys a very low unemployment rate and while it is not impossible to obtain work, priority is given to residents who were born on the island and those who have lived on the island for over ten years or are registered residents.
Jersey’s economy is primarily geared around financial services (40% of GVA in 2012) and the island has high economic output per capita, substantially ahead of all the world’s large developed economies. Despite being very prosperous, the standard of living is comparable to that of the UK. Important employment sectors besides financials services, include tourism and hospitality, retail, construction and agriculture.
The island operates a very generous tax regime which is favourable to corporations and attractive to wealthy expats. The island does not have VAT and Income Tax is half that of the UK at 20%. The States of Jersey introduced a goods and services tax (GST) on 6 May 2008, at a standard rate of 5%.
Generally speaking, the system follows the same curriculum as the UK and the island provides education through state schools (including a fee-paying option at secondary level).
There is a range of nursery, primary and secondary schools to choose from, as well as two private schools, Beaulieu Convent School and De La Salle College. Jersey’s Highlands College is a college of further education, a university centre, as well as a sixth form provider.

Depending on your residency status, there may be restrictions on buying property in Jersey. You need to be a resident for 11 years before being able to purchase property. As such, many new arrivals decide to rent first and buy later.
Rents can range from £724 per month for a one-bedroom apartment in the capital of St. Helier to £7000 for a beautiful 6 bedroom character home in the pretty town of St. Marin. While this can work out cost efficient and flexible in the short term, allowing families to bed in and get a feel for the island, it is not necessarily the best choice in the long term.
The property market is designed to meet the demands of the higher end of the market and as with neighbouring Guernsey, Jersey has its fair share of luxurious properties.
Prices for these homes can range from £1,000,000 up to as much as £8,995,000 for a premier 8 bedroomed mansion. Generally, the north of the island has the grander country homes and anywhere on the fringes of St Helier, the capital is considered a prime location.
In the lower to middle range, prices vary enormously from modest one bedroomed studio flats which can be purchased for around £149,500, to family detached 3 bedroom town house for approximately £435,000.
