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.
