How do I book a removal and how much notice do I need to give?
We operate a reasonable first come first served policy, in regard to bookings, ensuring that all our customers are dealt with fairly. If you are happy with the quote we have provided, please contact us as soon as you know your moving date so we can book you in. Once you have confirmed your booking by paying the required deposit, the date is yours!
It is better to book your removal date sooner rather than later as our availability does get limited, however, occasionally we are able to accommodate clients at short notice so please don’t hesitate to call us free on
0800 45 49 53, and one of our team will be happy to help.
A removal company’s busiest times can be on a Friday, weekends and at the end of the month, so if possible try to avoid accepting a removal date at these times, however, we do understand that banks, estate agents & solicitors etc. determine the dates and this may be completely out of your control.
How do you calculate your removal charges?
Whether you are moving home or business, our quotes are individual and vary according to your specific needs and exact requirements.
Your quote is calculated depending on the following:
- What size vehicle you will need for the total volume of your contents
- The parking & access to load the vehicle
- Size of the moving team required to carry out a safe move
- What Packing Materials you choose (if any)
- What Services you select
- The destination postcode you are moving to & the access to the new property/premises
- Any other special requirements or requests
Our quotes are very competitive and we promise an assured price for your Move.
What happens if there are problems or legal delays with my Removal?
Sometimes things happen that are out of your control, such as last minute delays with solicitors or problems with exchange date arrangements, banks etc.
We understand that these situations can be extremely stressful and cause worry, however, we can offer a comprehensive range of storage rooms which are always available immediately. All your belongings can stay in our secure storage facility until any legal solutions or a new exchange date has been confirmed. Your possessions will be safe and secure whilst at our storage facility, offering 24/7 security and controlled admission. You can visit the storage during the day to access your items then when you are ready to move, we will load and deliver your belongings to the provided address.
You never know how much stuff you have... until it comes to moving it all!
