Most frequent questions and answers
Our transport and operations team will make a decision on vehicle size based on the information our surveyor has collected. We will also take into consideration the access at the collection address and the delivery property, as well as the route that needs to be taken. If you are aware of any access issues, please make the office aware prior to your removal date.
There is no specific answer to this question and obviously depends on the volume of goods that you are taking. Other things such as; the paces the team have to travel between the property and vehicle will vastly affect the time of the removal. The time of completion will also impact how long the removal takes. You can be assured our crews will work as efficiently and safely as possible.
The number of crew members will depend on the amount of goods you are moving and conditions surrounding the job. Things like the distance to travel and if any dismantling and reassembling is required will affect how many crew are allocated to your removal.
We can provide an entire range of packing materials. Such as medium boxes which are sized at; 18”x13”x13” and large boxes which are; 18”x18”x20”. The medium boxes can be used for small heavy items such as books and the large boxes can be used for more general items. You will have received our packing guide with the quote for information on self-packing along with our moving kits prices. We also have hanging wardrobe boxes, these are provided as standard unless going into store and are available at an extra cost and hold the equivalent of a single doored wardrobe.

The crew will do their best to follow instructions or follow how the boxes are marked. It may not be possible to move your goods back into the room they came from due to the way the vehicle has been stacked. If no one is there to give clear instructions we cannot be responsible for rearranging your items into the rooms they belong.
Once we have loaded and are at your new property, we will wait up to 2PM for access, thereafter we will charge £30 per person per hour waiting. If we do not have access by 5PM we will look to unload into secure storage and bring the goods back at an additional cost of storage and transportation fees usually the following day or at the earliest possible time.
