Removals Top Tips and Advice

We would like you to please read the following top tips and advice.

We have found these tips will help make the move easier for us all. Please do contact us whenever you feel necessary as our expert advice is free and happily given.

  • We cannot remove Gas Appliances unless they have been disconnected by a GAS SAFE Registered Plumber. You will need to arrange this well before the day of your big move.
  • Let us know if you have any special requirements in advance. We will always try to help and may even be able to offer ideas to overcome potential problems.
  • Put washing machine hoses in the drum to ensure that hoses and washers are not damaged or lost.
  • Make sure everything is boxed upon our arrival. If you are concerned about this, we are more then happy to quote for packing boxes as well as removals. This however must be agreed in advance.
  • Mark the boxes with their contents and which room they need to be taken in your new home I.e. Kitchen, Dining Room, Lounge, Conservatory, Study, and Bedroom 1,2,3,4 etc. We generally expect Bedroom 1 to the be the closest to the Stairs.
  • Let us know of any Glass Table Tops to be moved. We have a process that ensures that they are not damaged
  • Our staff are equipped with basic tools to make the move easier, however, we can only dismantle furniture and Equipment if agreed in advance.
  • Label boxes with as much as possible i.e. Fragile Goods. Our staff will always read the labels before moving the boxes.
  • Pack Fragile Goods as well as possible. Also, don’t forget to label them as Fragile. Our staff can then make sure that they receive extra care during the move.
  • Printers & Copiers – Remove ink cartridges and place them in leak proof bags. We have known for ink from such items to spill on to cloth of furniture.
  • Please inform of Plant Pots that are normally kept outside as they can take up a lot of floor space and leave the floor of the van dirty. We will take extra precautions to ensure that they are not damaged during transit.
  • Please advise of any heavy items such as American Style Fridges and Piano’s. We can then arrange for our vehicles with hydraulic tail lifts to be used on the job.
  • Paint pots, stains and other liquids are better off being packed in Dustbin type containers to avoid spillage onto your other possessions, and our Vans!
  • Bedding and Quilts should be packed in heavy duty dustbin bags. They can then be efficiently packed inside our removal vehicles.
  • Drawers need to be emptied if they are packed with heavy items otherwise the bottoms may break upon moving.
  • Wardrobes are not all designed to be moved. Flat pack wardrobes can be particularly flimsy when lifted or tilted. We have a process of securing straps to such items to add strength during the removal process.
  • We pride ourselves on our service, responsibility, and honesty and look forward to working with you and making your move a success.

We are open 7 days a week and operate 24/7 to suit all our Customers needs.
