House removals

Moving companies will load your household contents onto their vehicle and drive them to your new place.

Whether your move involves a short 2 mile drive or a 200 mile journey to another city, professional movers will efficiently and safely transport your items to your new home. Fully trained, experienced, and specialised movers make house removals as easy and stress free as possible.

Office removals

For businesses looking to relocate their office, moving companies also offer specialised services dedicated to office removals. Moving offices or commercial premises, if not handled properly, can be hugely disruptive and result in loss of productivity.

Fortunately, removal companies have the expertise, equipment, and strategies such as storage facilities, employee transitioning programs, after-move care, and technology migration.

Furniture removals

If you just need to move a few pieces of furniture, moving companies have the knowledge and skill to safely transport your items. With special equipment and packing techniques, your furniture will arrive to its destination in pristine condition.

Furniture removals are the perfect option if you only require transport for your furniture or if you have sold an article online and need a way to deliver it to the new owner.

International removals

A move abroad is incredibly complex and stressful—if completed all by yourself. With a moving company, you will be able to alleviate this stress.

International removals are made easy with professional removers; they will arrange for shipping, sort out customs paperwork, and even assist with cultural or language training to better transition to your new country, if requested.

Packing services

We all know that one of the most boring and tiring tasks of moving is packing. It can be monotonous and, depending on what you will be moving, exhausting.

However, if you put some of this burden on a removal company, you can spend your valuable time on other important matters. Movers are specially trained and have the proper packing equipment to ensure your items are safe and secure during the entire journey.

Packing and moving services

Packing materials

If you prefer to complete your packing on your own, packing materials are available for purchase. Additionally, some companies include the price of packing supplies in their packing service, while others do not. As such, it is important to have a general idea of prices.

Packing materials cost

Packing MaterialPrice
Large Box (45cm x 45cm x 52cm)£3.50 each
Medium Box (43cm x 43cm x 48cm)£3.00 each
Small Box (30cm x 30cm x 48cm)£2.50 each
Wardrobe box with hanging bar (51cm x 45cm x 122cm)£10.00 each
Packing Tape (48mm x 66mm)£1.50 per roll
Bubble Wrap (100m x 50cm)£20.00 each
Packing Paper (500 sheets per ream)£12.00 each
Moving Blanket/Cover (200cm x 150cm)£5.00 each

Specialist removals

Certain large, heavy, or bulky items such as wardrobes or cabinets require particular equipment and more movers. Furniture lifts or cranes are needed to safely transport these larger items.

Furthermore, antique or fragile possessions, such as paintings, crockery, or family heirlooms require extra protective measures to ensure that your precious items are not damaged, lost, or lose their value.

Piano removals

A common request is to move a piano. Extra care is needed for these heavy instruments since a slight knock could detune the piano, adding more costs for tuning it once again.

Appropriate padding, wrapping, and lifting equipment—provided by moving companies—are necessary to ensure that your piano arrives at your new home in tune and undamaged.

Cleaning

We understand that the big moving day is mentally and physically tiring. After a long day of loading, driving, unloading, and unpacking, you will probably not be in the mood to clean.

With cleaning services, moving companies can prepare your new home, getting rid of the mess that movers can create. This service is also available to clean your old home to have it ready for the new tenants or for the landlord.

Disassembly/reassembly

To make your packing go even more quickly, movers have a service where they will disassemble any furniture you designate. This way, they can quickly be packed up into boxes, speeding up the whole moving process.

Additionally, on the other end, removalists can assemble any of the furniture again, allowing you to settle into your new home quickly.

Handyman services

Occasionally, you may need to install appliances, sockets, or light fixtures in your new place of residence.

Alternatively, you might need to uninstall home appliances at your old place, such as a fridge or washing machine, and have them ready for transport. In any case, handyman services are available to handle these technical issues.

Storage

If you are not able to receive the keys to your home due to an unexpected circumstance, or if you simply want a place to keep some of your belongings while you get your new house ready, you are able to use storage facilities.

Some moving companies have their own storage facilities with features such as 24-hour access self-storage, CCTV surveillance, or container storage.

Insurance

The best removal companies pride themselves in their ability to keep you and your items safe and transport them quickly and efficiently. They do their best to make sure nothing goes wrong.

However, we understand that there are some events that are out of our hands. That is why companies have insurance policies that go beyond covering the movers’ liability—they can cover the value of your goods, the cost of replacement, or total loss.

Administrative services

To make life easier for you, professional removal companies offer services to handle the administrative tasks related to your move. These include applying for parking suspensions or dispensation, paying congestion charges, shipment consolidation, and customs and duties.

If you request these services, you will save time for other important matters such as packing or adjusting to your new home.
