Moving house ?

Your Guarantee

Our fully trained staff and management team handle up to 40 moves every week, many of which are in the UK. If you’re moving from one part of the UK to another, we can help.

As members of the British Association of Removers (BAR), we are trained in all the latest materials, techniques and procedures for home removals. It also means we abide by their professional Code of Practice and carry insurance that meets their High standards.

You probably have a few questions :

Do you provide a full packing service?

Yes we do. To avoid damage, we recommend you use our professional packing teams. Letting our experts do the packing for you is the easiest and safest way to pack, and can be surprisingly affordable too.

Do you supply packing materials?

Yes, we can supply you with high-quality packing boxes and materials if you’d prefer to do your own packing.

Are you insured?

Of course. Your possessions are comprehensively covered up to £50,000 as standard. If your home has a higher value, we can arrange appropriate cover.

What removal vehicles do you use?

We have a range of vehicles we can use, from small packing vans to large pantechnicons.

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

That depends on the volume of furniture you want to move and where you’re moving to. Our estimator will survey your home and give you a quote so you know what to expect. Estimates are free and without obligation.

How much notice do you need to arrange a removal?

The more time you allow us the better, we usually ask for a minimum of two weeks however we will always try to help with short notice moves.

Will you move our houseplants?

Yes, although we don’t take responsibility for their condition on arrival so you may prefer to take indoor and outdoor plants in your own transport.

Do you move precious heirlooms and valuable items?

Our trained staff have years of expertise packing and handling delicate items, from your finest bone china to your antique furniture.

What about domestic appliances?

As removers, we don’t disconnect domestic appliances; but if required, we can arrange for qualified electricians and plumbers to do so.

Can you put our belongings into storage?

Yes we can. We have secure storage facilities throughout the UK. Please see our storage page for full details.

What time do we have to be out of the house?

We commit to have the property empty by 1pm on completion day.

Should I change the locks on my new House?

We recommend that you do as you do not know who the last owner gave a key to.

What our
customers say...

We called Humphreys at short notice having been let down by another company.
I cannot thank the removal guys enough. What was a very stressful situation for us was quickly alleviated by the friendly professional crew and the very efficient staff in the office, namely Darrel. Kevin and Brad worked their socks off for us between the UK and France. I would not hesitate but to recommend this company. Thank you very, very much.
Tania Metcalfe and Robert Roe

I’ve been meaning to email to say thanks and the removal guys you sent were amazing! The packing and move went really smoothly.
ST Watford

Thank you very much with your professional help moving us to Wales last week.  The men were very efficient and friendly both in Watford and Wales and we were very impressed with the care they took and the speed at which they went.  The man who carried the anvil on his own to a distant shed was particularly impressive!! We were amazed that it could be lifted by one man let alone carried quite a way. They also helped us in Wales, by moving a huge cupboard from a shed into the house.

I am happy to recommend your services


We were absolutely delighted with the service, your guys were helpful,courteous and very sensitive given my wife’s special needs as a disabled person…..they couldn’t have been more helpful at what is always a bit of a stressful time.thanks to you and the team.we would recommend them to anyone.

” Great Service”

Mr S

Oxhey to Claygate

I can’t thank you and your team enough  for helping us move house. Your assistance up to the move made the preparation easier. The team you assigned for the the move were great to work with and nothing was any trouble. We had been impressed with them when they packed up our old home. but the professionalism throughout the afternoon and when they were able to unload at the new house after the protracted actions to get the keys released was outstanding.
