When moving home, we offer a flexible removal service:

Choice of service level: medium size van, 3.5ton Luton with tail lift or 7.5ton truck.

Choice of staff level: Starting with one man and one van [with customer providing assistance] for light removals through to two/three vans, two/three removal men. 

The one man and one van option is an excellent choice if you want to assist with your own move and save on costs. For example, a customer moving from a property in London to another in Cornwall could save by making a local arrangement for additional help at the point of loading, thereby saving the cost of paying for an extra man to travel to and from Cornwall. On the other hand, those who prefer the traditional removal service can also be catered for.

Customers should note that we are essentially a budget removal service. Although we exercise a proper duty of care, our operating practices reflect the prices we charge. For example, customers are responsible for protecting delicate surfaces such as light coloured carpets [particularly when raining]. Nevertheless, we respect customer’s premises and treat their property as if it were our own. Therefore, unless the stairwells and access ways are exceptionally tight, when moving furniture our movers make sure they keep it away from marking walls and door-frames. We also use thick blankets and tie-straps to protect furniture, electrical items, mirrors, beds etc when in transit.

If we pack, clothes will be folded and stored in clean boxes as opposed to temporary [and expensive] cardboard wardrobes. Also crockery might be wrapped in customer’s tea towels before placing in boxes [an efficient, environmentally friendly and cost saving packing method used by mothers since time immemorial]. We could operate a more salubrious service, but prices would need to rise to reflect this level of service.

Remember, we are not just a man with van. We can mix and match our removals service to suite any need. For example, we recently completed a house removal from a three-bedroom property in Southampton to a cottage near Plymouth. When the customer emailed his list of goods to us, the volume was just too large for a 3.5 ton Luton but too small to warrant the expense of a 7.5 ton lorry. We therefore suggested arriving the day before the main removal day with one man in the medium size van, which moved his white goods and many of his boxes [approx 4cubic metres]. We then returned the next day with the 3.5ton Luton for the main furniture removal. By being flexible, we saved the customer over £250 in wasted costs.
