We feel it is important that you know exactly what your moving costs will be upfront with no nasty surprises.

This involves walking through your property room by room noting on an electronic tablet what items you want to transfer to your new home.
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.

House removals are one of the most stressful life events, but with careful organisation it is possible to make sure the big day runs smoothly.
Unless you have only a very few possessions, it is always best to instruct the services of a professional removals company to help you move to a new house.
Initially, thinking you can carry out the house move yourself may not sound too difficult. However, there is a certain amount of skill involved when packing household effects. Lifting heavy items of furniture is very hard work not to mention potentially dangerous.
Many people have sustained back injuries or even broken bones during house moves. It also takes time — a precious commodity in our very busy lives.

Plymouth is often referred to as Britain’s Ocean City and has one of Europe’s most exciting waterfront harbours, a haven for yacht lovers. Skirted around the cobbled streets of the barbican are narrow lanes containing Tudor and Jacobean listed buildings and a wide variety of boutique shops, art galleries and eateries.
Following a population boom, the City Council has been undertaking a huge regeneration program which is providing much needed housing, infrastructure improvements and amenities, including a new cruise terminal to rival Southampton.
According to the Land Registry, property values are on the rise in this part of Devon at 3.9% year on year, thanks in part to a much-improved outlook for the local jobs market in Plymouth. However, a lack of affordable housing stock is also a key driver.
There is plenty to do to fill your leisure time in Plymouth. The local lido, the Tinside, was voted one of the top ten outdoor pools in Europe. As well as water sports and world-class sailing, Plymouth has plenty of entertainment venues, including the Barbican Theatre, Theatre Royal and the Pavilions where you can see the latest live music acts.
To the north you can explore the Dartmoor National Park, extending to over 300 square miles, which provides excellent recreational facilities. Plymouth also has a number of good schools and the local university is the 10th largest university in the UK and one of the up and coming ‘1992 universities’.
Getting to and from Plymouth is very easy. Trains from Plymouth to London Paddington take 3 hours, 30 minutes and depart regularly. Exeter takes an hour. Brittany Ferries operates seasonal services from Plymouth to France and northern Spain. The main A38 and A386 offer access to other towns and villages surrounding the city.
If you are planning a day out, there is plenty to do in and around Plymouth. The town boasts the UK’s largest aquarium, the National Marine (www.national-aquarium.co.uk) and is a great day out for all the family. Alternatively, why not visit one of the following attractions:
The city has a great selection of leisure facilities and gyms also, including the following:

You can purchase a family detached home for £361,879, a semi for around £209,799 and attractive Victorian terraces at £179,817. Currently, the most expensive streets are Riverside Road, Court Wood and Manor Bourne.
Stoke would be a good place to start house hunting, it’s a short walk from Plymouth’s centre, or Davenport where the naval officers chose to build some very elegant early 19th-century villas.
There are also plenty of Victorian terrace properties around Wilton Street, which were first built to house dockworkers.
