Will you help with the packing or do we have to do it ourselves?

How long will the move take/how much will it cost?

That depends on what there is to move. But the estimator who surveys your home will be able to let you know what to expect. Estimates are free and without obligation, so contact us to arrange one.

How much notice do you need to arrange a removal?

The more time you allow us the better, but we usually ask for a minimum of two weeks for UK moves, but call us if you need a move quicker than that we may be able to help.

What about my heirlooms, valuables and fragile items?

We’ve got years of expertise packing and handling delicate items from fine bone china, to houseplants, to grand pianos.

Can you help move my domestic appliances?

If required, we can arrange for qualified electricians and plumbers to disconnect your white goods.

Can you put our belongings into storage?

Yes we can. We have storage facilities throughout the UK for short- or long-term storage.

Storage

As long as you need to. We offer short- and long-term solutions.
