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.

The town quickly developed into a busy holiday resort and although its popularity waned in the 1980s and 90s, it is making somewhat of a comeback. Today much has been done to rejuvenate the town and its “Tern Project”, has seen the redesign and reconstruction of its Promenade.
The Bay is an excellent place for outdoor activities. Morecambe Bay has some of the most varied fishing in all of Britain and is perhaps most famous for Morecambe Bay Potted Shrimps, which are ‘By appointment to Her Majesty the Queen.’
The Arndale Centre is Morecambe’s only covered shopping destination, offering everyday retailing and the towns two main retail parks are Central Drive and Lancaster Retail Park these give residents more choice and are home to larger stores.
