Domestic Removals

Domestic House Removals

How much will it cost?

The cost of your removal is dependent upon the following factors:

 The distance that you are moving
 The number and size of your household goods Items which need careful handling such as pictures, antiques etc...
 Whether you or the removal company are going to be doing the packing
 Ease of access to your old and new houses

We offer to our customers late key protection which can provide you with 'Peace of Mind' and take the 'STRESS' out of MOVING!

When the surveyor call

Show the Removals Surveyor all of your rooms, not forgetting the loft space. You can ask your Surveyor for a price for our operatives to pack all your effects. Also ask our Surveyor about the packing and preparation of electrical items such as 'freezers and televisions'


In the event that you decide to undertake your own packing:

 You should start to sort out the belongings which require packing at least a fortnight before you move.
 Arrange the supply of cartons well in advance of the removal date, don't expect to do all the packing the day before.

Packing hints:

 Do not use boxes that cannot be sealed as things can get lost or damaged.
 Never interlock the bottoms or tops of boxes as this weakens the structure and again your effects could be at risk.
 List the contents of each box, just in case you need to find something in a hurry pack your own jewellery and clothes.
 Don't overfill or make the boxes too heavy; if you can't lift the box the removal men probably can't either.
 If you have books/DVD's to pack - use the smaller size boxes.
 Seal your boxes with the tape provided.
 Don't pack your bath tub: it is a recognised fitting.

A fortnight before your move

You should be informing people of your imminent change of address. Change of address cards should be sent to friends, clubs and unfortunately the Inland Revenue too. Arrange with the Post Office to forward your mail. Inform your insurers and make the relevant alterations to your driving licence and log books. Return all those library books.

A week before your move

Clear any bills you may have with the milkman and other delivery people and inform them of your impending departure. Arrange for the gas and electricity companies to read your meters on the removal day. Start arranging for the children to be looked after on the day of the removal. Remember, don't even think about packing the children's favourite toys, they will have the removal men emptying the van before you even get to your new house. Arrange the transportation of your pets and children (the RSPCA will provide good advice for both).

The day before your move

Defrost the fridge and freezer, this may be the last chance you will have to get rid of the remaining turkey broth from Christmas. Pack overnight bags, organise food and drinks for the removal day.

Remember to keep any documentation you may need out on the day of moving such as passports, insurance, licence renewals etc.

The removal day

If you have chosen to pack your own effects. everything small enough to fit in a box must be boxed and ready prior to the Removal Vehicle's arrival. Try not to shout at the crew if they are late, they like everyone, are subject to traffic situations. After the crew have introduced themselves, gone through the details with you, and put protective covers down in your hallway, point out to them any 'special' or 'sentimental' items or any concerns you may have with regard to your move, then let them take charge, try to relax. They do this specialised work 'Day- in Day-out' and have done so for quite a number of years now. Let them take care of you.

Finally, please remember to feed and water the crew, they won't get much of a chance to find refreshment elsewhere - unless you are moving to a Restaurant!
