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 either visit your home or conduct a video survey 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.

Why Move to Neath?
Located in an area of great natural beauty, Neath is both a town and an urban area situated in the Neath Port Talbot borough and historic county of Glamorgan, Wales.
Neath provides an excellent quality of life, priding itself on its diversity and relatively low cost of living.
The area is noted for its pleasant climate, characterised by cool summers and mild winters.
The surrounding region is packed with historical sites, variations of landscape, pristine beaches, wonderful country parks and even beautiful waterfalls. Easy to get to, Neath sits around 6 miles upstream from Swansea Bay on the Bristol Channel and 37 miles (well under an hour by car) from Cardiff, the Welsh capital.
There have been many changes to the town over the centuries. Although Neath Port Talbot is historically an industrial area, known for its manufacturing industries of iron, steel and tinplate, many of the former industrial sites are being repurposed for shopping and business centres.
Neath still retains its steelworks business and Corus (formally British Steel), employs in excess of 3,000 workers, but its economy today is much more diversified with light industry replacing a diminishing heavy industrial sector.
The service sector is becoming increasingly important too, and the opportunity for growth in this sector is very positive, with a number of good quality sites already established and further developments proposed. Access to beautiful open spaces, stunning scenery and low cost of living combined with extremely favourable property prices makes Neath an attractive option for relocation.
Neath Schools & Education
Welsh Government Ministers regulate almost all areas of education in Wales.
The education system largely resembles the structure set up in England, with maintained schools (most state schools) following the National Curriculum.
However, since the 2011/2012 school year, the entire curriculum for Key Stage 1 has been replaced in Wales by the Foundation Phase for all three to seven-year-olds.
The distinct difference is that the Welsh language is taught as a part of the curriculum in all schools up to the age of 16.
Primaries in the district include Blaenbaglan Primary School, Baglan Primary School, Melin Primary and St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School.
Children filter into a number of secondaries – Dwr Y Felin Comprehensive School, Cefn Saeson Comprehensive School and St Joseph’s RC School & 6th Form Centre are just a few of the secondaries available.
Students who wish to stay closer to home whilst they pursue higher education can attend Cardiff University.
A hugely popular choice, it has a reputation for world-class research and provides an excellent experience for its student body.
Aberystwyth University has regularly been placed in the UK’s top 50 universities in the main national rankings.
It was the first university to be awarded the prestigious prize “University of the year for teaching quality” by The Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide for two consecutive years (2018 and 2019).
Things to do in Neath
Finding something to while away your free time poses absolutely no problem when you live in Neath.
Here are just a few examples of the recreational endeavours you may wish to investigate:
The wider region of Wales boasts an astounding 150 stunning beaches, offering a true back to nature experience.

Adrenaline junkies can take advantage of an amazingly varied choice of outdoor sports, mountain biking, adventure sports, zip lines (North Wales is the zip line capital of the world), hiking, mountaineering, water sports, rally driving, and of course rugby.
And for those who love to explore historical sites, Wales has 6 World Heritage sites and there are approximately 600 castles to be found in Wales, making it the castle capital of Europe.
No matter where you move to one of the important factors to consider is property prices.
The size of your budget will most certainly influence where you choose to live.
The great news about Neath is that property is among some of the cheapest in the UK.
According to Zoopla, the average house price is currently under £160,000!
Compare this to Cardiff’s average of £286,321 and you can see why Neath gives you so much more for your money.
