Bonus tip: Inform us of any antiques or expensive items

We take great care of anything that is loaded and transported to your new address. However, we also prefer to be notified of any antique or rare items so they can be wrapped with extra materials for better protection. The movers will also be very cautious when handling them into and out of the van to guarantee the safety of such belongings.

This means that you only need to fill the online form with your specific requests, in order to receive our precise price quotation. Often, we are able to send Man and a Van at a short notice or even on the same day. To compare, some large-scale moving jobs call for a preliminary free of charge viewing before you can schedule an appointment and get an idea about the service costs.

Bonus tip: Find furniture manuals

The professional who'll come to your home is skilled in dismantling and putting back together most of the everyday furniture. However, If you have any unusual household items that require more sophisticated tools or skills, please, make sure these will be there when the professional come. He will need the manuals to get the job done as fast as possible for your maximum comfort and peace of mind. Please bare in mind that for some specific furniture the professional might require your assistance as well.

You can benefit from ordering a moving checklist and packing materials, request our packing help, and get all your flat pack furniture dismantled as part of the loading process. You can also benefit from the step-by-step packing guide to ensure all your belongings will arrive safely at their destination. We also offer short-term storage and long-term storage services where you can keep your belongings safe for as long as you need.

Bonus tip: Label all plugs

Any electric appliances with removable plugs should be put back together accordingly. Label each plug so you can get the electronics working again at the new house in minutes. This smart technique will also prevent braking an appliance from plugging it in the electrical network improperly.

Our man and van service coverage includes any location in the UK. You can also take advantage of an overnight moving service and not waste a moment of daylight. This means that you can start unpacking and settling into your new home first thing if you’ve planned your relocation properly. Furthermore, we are now expanding our services and offer international moving solutions to and from any country within or outside EU.

Bonus tip: Secure a parking lot

Reserve a parking lot for the removals van at least 1 day prior to the move. The job will be completed efficiently only if the van is parked close to your house. This step of the removals process is a customer's responsibility.

We realise that there are many other tasks to be handled around a move. For instance, you might need the item in question disassembled. That is why the removals professional will bring his own tools in order to aid with this task and ease the move. On the other hand, we can provide you with packing materials such as boxes of various sizes and bubble wrap if you wish to pack some of your belongings.

If you really need to move something but you have no place to put it, you can take advantage of our packing and storage service in London. And when the time comes to move them, we will take them to the address you have specified. Of course, the unpacking and the assembly is once again something we can help you with.
