Things to consider when moving long-distance
Moving in the same neighbourhood can be a tough process, but moving across the country is a whole nother story. It'll ease the process quite a lot if already in the beginning you create a moving checklist. Make sure you allow yourself enough time to deal with any documents, registrations, etc.
Don't underestimate packing, as going back from the other side of the UK to get a cherished item you forgot can be quite expensive. Make sure to arrange your means of transportation on moving day and to schedule everything accordingly, in order to meet the movers at your new home.
It's hard for children to get used to the idea that they will have to make new friends, go to a new school and that they're basically leaving their home behind. Spend enough time talking with them about what's going on, in order to help them adapt during the moving process as they will need it.
As disciplined as your furry companion can be, a long-distance move will come with some special preparations and extra scheduling for feeding and toilet breaks. Pets have a harder time understanding why all of a sudden everything is changing. Before, during and after moving day make sure to provide your pet with the necessary care and attention to help them adjust and accept their new surroundings easier.
You don't need to take on the whole moving process on your own. Fantastic Removals offers a wide range of services to assure your move goes smooth and stress-free. The movers can deliver the necessary packing materials to your doorstep, professionally pack your possessions and safely transport them to your new location. Just let us know in advance of your relocation needs and leave the rest in our hands!

Long-distance moves outside London
Usually, we help households with domestic removals services within the M25 area. However, we are also available to relocate you to any address on the territory of the UK. Large-scale moves of such kind required better preparation. Thus, we recommend planning the move at least two weeks before the moving date. Contact us at least a week before the planned date for the relocation, as we need to secure an available booking slot, especially for complex jobs, such as moving a piano.
International moves within Europe
The long-distance removal team are able to transport all your belongings from the UK to almost any European city in about 2-3 days. An international move takes about a week to complete from start to finish, so start as early as possible with the arrangements. During the long-distance move outside the UK, you will be provided with full insurance on your belongings.

Frequently asked questions about the long-distance removals service
Q: When is a moving job considered long-distant?
A: There is no minimum distance for us to consider a house move as a long-distance one. However, whenever a client moves outside the area of M25 or out of UK territory, we handle the service as long-distance removals.
Q: Is there a maximum distance for a long-distant move?
A: We are limited to moves within Europe. In this aspect, the maximum distance we can send a vehicle to is the furthest European country within the EU.
Q: Do I need to call earlier to schedule a long-distance move?
A: Call us whenever you are clear about your plans on moving out. Last-minute calls create a series of troublesome events during the move and we want to avoid this. We might also have a full schedule if you make a call a day before the move. A week or 2 weeks in advance is enough time for us to give you the best quote and assign a removals team that is available.
Q: Do you class all moves outside London, in the UK, as long-distance relocations?
A: This will depend on how far your new address is from London. Also, if you move to a distant area, expect higher costs for the service, as more resources will be needed to complete the job. The longer distance affects the price but with the Fantastic Club membership, you can receive preferential rates for a year. Note, however, that as long as a move is within the territory of M25 zone, there will be no additional charges for the service.
Q: Do you have different terms and conditions for long-distant moves?
A: Our T&C policy remains the same. However, for large-scale moves, we always schedule a professional survey prior to the service. A surveyor will estimate all resources needed for the move to be completed in a smooth and stress-free manner.
