Hassle-Free Removals in Selby

Our Selby removals service is a well-established, family-run operation, which has been in business for over 15 years.

We know first-hand just how much of a disruption moving to a new house can be, and we completely understand how much stress it can cause!

It’s completely natural. With packing, arranging relocations and setting up property storage, there’s a lot to take on board and a lot of choices to make, so it’s easy to understand how those who are moving to a new house or relocating business can quickly start to feel a little overwhelmed.

That’s why our experienced and professional team are on hand and will always go the extra mile to help make sure your move is as seamless as possible.

At Removals for You, we make relocations
easy and hassle free

Our team operates in Selby and the surrounding area – serving Leeds, York, Hull and beyond – with the ultimate aim to make your moving day as stress-free as it should be.

Whether you’re a store-owner, an office manager or a business operator looking to change locations, Removals for You can make that process as smooth, painless and efficient as possible.

What’s more, when you work with us there is no middleman. You deal directly with the team who will be managing and carrying out your move. All our staff are CRB checked, trained and qualified to a high standard and we go out of our way to continually exceed our customers’ expectations.

Steps for a perfect removal

Every removal is different and has different requirements; however, there are a few points to remember to help get you started.

Don’t hesitate in booking your removal company. There’s nothing worse than panicking at the last minute and even worse not being able to get your move day scheduled!

Once you’ve spoken to one of our friendly team, we’ll send you a free, no obligation quote along with steps as to what happens next.

Now you’ve chosen to go with the best removal company in Yorkshire; we’ll ask you if it would be possible to secure us a parking space. Having to walk down the street or office block with your belongings isn’t an ideal situation, so it would be great if we can be as close to your property as possible.

Finally, sit back and relax, letting us take care of making sure you get settled into your new home in no time.

Moving to a new house?

Moving to a new house is a scary concept.  Not only the thought of moving into a new property but the idea that you must box all your belongings up, safely, transport them, safely, and unpack them at the other end, safely! 

The good news is we’re here to help! 

Once you find out your exact moving date, give us a call to arrange a free, no obligation quote.  Once you’re happy, book us in via email or phone call, and don’t forget to reserve us that ever so important parking spot for the day. 

Now that you have peace of mind that moving day is sorted and in safe hands, make sure to check your home insurance contents policy to see what your cover entails when it comes to moving your possessions.  Our experts are on hand to answer any questions you may have. 

Then you need to consider; have you got all the boxes you need?  What about packing materials and wrap?  Don’t pack at the last minute; you’ll only end up regretting it when you come to moving day and unpacking at the other end! 

There is also all the little things that we sometimes forget about, such as the broadband and energy suppliers to our homes – letting them know as soon as possible that you’re moving, helps you to get set up in your new home as quickly as possible too! 

Let your friends and family know and order your change of address cards in plenty of time.  This is also a good time to write down a list of your credit card suppliers, banks, store cards, insurance companies, vets, doctors, dentists and don’t forget the DVLA! –  basically, anyone who needs to know your change of address. 

Finally, everyone who needs to know, now knows you’re moving.  You’ve sorted your boxes, and packing materials and Removals for You are booked and raring to go. 

Now’s the time to think about any pets you might have and don’t forget the kids!  Think about childcare in prep for the big day as well as booking any pets into kennels or to stay with friends until you are completely sorted and ready for the real chaos to commence!

Top tips when moving home:

  • Don’t forget to pay your window cleaner and bin men!  Settle any outstanding payments on the house that you may have. 
  • Check when your keys need to be handed to the estate agent and when you can collect your new ones (spare keys should also be handed in too!) 
  • Put together a small “for our new home” box, which contains all the essentials, like light bulbs, toilet rolls, candles, cash, matches, etc and keep this in your car with you, so you always have it. 
  • Carry out any last-minute checks on your dishwater, washing machines, dryers etc to make sure there’s nothing left behind. 
  • Make sure to let us know, what is staying in the house and anything that is waste, and if you would like us to dispose of this? 
  • Do one final check around the home once everything has been packed and loaded away. 
  • Be excited!  You did it.  You’ve moved, stress-free and with ease – now’s the time to sit back and relax!

Frequently asked questions


What size of van will I get?
The size of the van is decided by our staff based on a survey of your home. It is our responsibility to get this right. Always use a company with experience and a good reputation to ensure that they will. If a survey has not been carried out, we will use the information that you have provided us with to calculate the size of van required. As long as you have been honest then it will still be our responsibility to get it right.
Can I move at the Weekend?
We are able to carry out your removal at any time that is convenient to you.
How many men will do my removal?
The size of the removal crew is decided by our staff based on the information we have and is usually between two and four men. The decision depends on the amount of goods to move and the overall schedule for your move. We will be responsible for allocating enough staff for your move.
How long will my removal take?
There are several factors that affect the time it takes to complete a removal. The obvious ones are the amount of goods and the distance they are moving. Some may be less obvious but are just as important. Simple things like having to park ten feet further from your house due to parked cars can severely change the time it takes to load or unload. Try to inform us of anything that may happen or be different on the day of your removal, even if it does not seem that important.
What size are removal boxes?
Most removal companies use a variety of boxes however there are two main types, a book box and a general-purpose box. A general-purpose box is often referred to as a Pack 2 or a tea chest box and is 18″ x 18″ x 18″. The book box is smaller to restrict its weight and is suitable for heavier items not just books. It is also known as a Pack 6 and is 18″ x 12″ x 12″.
Packing boxes & boxes for moving, do you provide them?
We stock boxes for moving house at our offices and we often include moving boxes in the price of our removals. Of course, you can buy house moving boxes from us. Our boxes for moving are strong and made from good quality materials – why not contact us and ask for our moving house boxes prices?
What do removal costs include?
Removal prices are tailored to your needs. Our basic service supplies you with a removal van with crew and includes travelling, but you may choose extra services such as packing and storage too.
How do I pay for my removal?
Once you have accepted our Quote, we require full payment on completion of your removal. This can be paid via debit or credit card and BACS or cash.
What time will the van arrive?
Generally our staff start work between six and eight o’clock in the morning. We aim to be at your address between 8:30am and 9:00am in the morning. If you are moving long distance, we will liaise with you and give you an estimated time of arrival. Sometimes, for many reasons we can be delayed however we will always arrive.
How much will my removal cost?
There are many factors that are taken into consideration when calculating the price, distance, size of vehicle, access and packing are just some of the obvious ones. Always try to get your property viewed to avoid any doubts, getting a quote over the phone does work but is not as reliable as a survey. We only give quotations, not estimates. Try to avoid being given estimates by other companies as their final bill may be larger than you expected
Do you dismantle and reassemble my furniture?
Unless this was agreed in the quote, all items needing dismantled are expected to be done and ready to move before we arrive. If agreed in the quote, our staff will carry out the dismantling and reassembly as agreed. It is essential that you say what is required at the quotation stage to allow for the necessary time and equipment to be provided.
Do I have to empty my drawers?
As long as there are no heavy or breakable items left in drawers then it is usually ok to leave them full. Some types of furniture like self assembly units don’t travel well and it is advised that you empty these completely. As long as the furniture itself is sturdy then items like clothing and bedding can and should be left in.
Can I do my own packing?
Yes is the simple answer. If you do your own packing, use boxes that are a suitable size and strength. Make sure you seal all your boxes as well, open top boxes like banana boxes make it impossible to safely stack your goods in the van. Always find out how packing your own boxes affects your insurance, most companies will only recognise damages if the box has been dropped or crushed. If you are unsure or struggling to get suitable boxes, we can supply you with what you need.
How much notice do you require?
Before your expected move takes place, you would usually book between 1 and 2 weeks before. We ask that you give us as much notice as possible.
