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 Romford?
Situated in East London, Havering, Romford was once a small market town established in 1247. Now it’s a significant commercial centre. In 1247, Romford was located on the main road to London, where the regionally significant Romford Market still runs to this day.
The original site of the town was to the south, in an area still known as Oldchurch. Due to frequent flooding of the River Rom, it moved to its present site in the late 15th Century.
Today the town boasts a busy night-life economy, with more than 15,000 people pouring into its bars, restaurants and clubs at weekends. It’s also the fourth largest retail centre in London and one of the top 15 in the South-East, attracting more than 25 million visitors a year.
Being just a short 10-minute train journey from London, Romford has always attracted east Londoners wanting more space, a fast commute, and to be closer to the Essex countryside and the seaside at Southend.
With plans to improve and create new residential developments and work opportunities, job prospects are expected to spike. Romford is all set to be a key destination in the Thames Gateway area over the next decade.
