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

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.

Why move to Wallingford
This unassuming but ancient little market town is a great find for a number of reasons.
Packed with history. King Alfred the Great built Wallingford in the 9th century as a defence against the Vikings. You can still see the original Saxon ramparts today.
Several large locations are easy to get to from here. Didcot is 14 minutes by road, Oxford 29 minutes, Reading 26 minutes, and Swindon 55 minutes. Plus, it is just within reach of commuting to London, one hour and 15 minutes.
So that is the journey to work sorted. Now let’s look at schools in the area. Wallingford scores very highly here. Home to three state primary schools and Wallingford School, a secondary with 6th Form all of which perform well. Three private schools are available within three miles of the town.
What about getting outside? Wallingford is bordered by both the Wessex Downs and Chiltern Hills Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), so this box also receives a huge tick. The area has access to several parks, green spaces, and Children’s play areas, which supply residents and visitors with opportunities to enjoy sports, leisure, and outdoor recreation.
Compact, self-contained, and particularly attractive, the main town square dates to the Saxon times and is the heart and soul of Wallingford. The area has been used for markets for hundreds of years and still holds four markets today.
Surrounding the marketplace are plenty of stores, both well-known retailers and an array of great independents sitting side by side. Plus, Wallingford has lots of inviting places to eat and drink. The traditional George Hotel and the Coach & Horses pub come highly recommended.
Wallingford fits the bill if you are hankering to live in a location offering a lifestyle that focuses on community, evident in its many sports and social clubs. Nestled on the banks of the river Thames, Wallingford is certainly picturesque and historic. It also makes an ideal spot to settle long-term.
Wallingford Schools & Education
Is finding a good school for your child a concern for you?
If you move to Wallingford, there is no need to worry as there are many highly regarded schools.
St John’s (a primary school), Fir Tree, (a junior school), and St Nicholas (an infants’ school) are all located within the town itself, with an additional 8 primary schools available less than three miles from the town.
The majority of pupils aged 4-11 continue their education at Wallingford School, a secondary school with academy status.
The school has enjoyed considerable success academically since 2012 finishing at or near the top of the performance tables for Oxfordshire for A-Level and GCSEs.
Students can choose to stay at Wallingford Academy as it does offer 6th form education.
Alternatively, there are three further education colleges nearby: Abingdon & Witney College, City of Oxford College, and Henley College. All are found close enough to get to daily.
One of the closest universities happens to be The University of Oxford, it has a reputation that speaks for itself.
A large, internationally renowned institution Oxford University has roughly 100 major academic departments, which are overseen by the four academic divisions: Medical Sciences; Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences; Humanities and Social Sciences.
Things to do in Wallingford
The town has some great attractions without even having to leave it.
However, if you travel just a few miles away, there are so many places of interest it will likely keep you busy for weeks.
When you have some spare time on your hands why not visit some of these wonderful places:
Head to Wallingford Town Council’s website for a list of what’s on in the coming months.
You won’t be too surprised to learn that property prices are high.
The average price for a home in Wallingford is £525,733.
Although the average price could be off-putting to potential buyers with modest budgets, there are some much more reasonably priced properties on the market.
Flats sell for an average of £218,050, which is much more attainable. Plus, there are some great shared ownership deals to be had.
Unusually, the town’s property portfolio is dominated by larger homes. Houses with three bedrooms or more account for two-thirds of available stock.
Terraced homes average at £352,530, again not beyond reach pricewise.
If you have a healthy budget, you are in for a real treat as there are currently some stunning homes for sale that break the £1,000,000 threshold.
The most expensive home is on the market for £2,500,000. It features 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a swimming pool!
