Mr & Mrs Williams

"This is just a quick note to thank you and ALL of your team for the fantastic service we received from Weston and Edwards over the last few months. From the initial survey and quotation through to our final delivery here in France we have been absolutely delighted with all of your team's efforts. Tom and Sam did an excellent job in collecting and packing all our furniture and effects from our house in Taunton. During the 3 months our furniture was in your store we had ever helpful contact with Jenni and Helen. The final delivery by John and Paul was friendly, obliging and very efficient. We have had no hesitation in recommending Weston and Edwards to friends, some of whom have already used your services, and would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone. Unfortunately for you we are very, very happy here, so we are unlikely to be using your services again. Thank you for making our move so smooth and stress free. "



Mr and Mrs Weeks

"Can you please pass on our grateful thanks to Gary and Chris for all their hard work yesterday. Everything went like clockwork, and they took the stress out of the day with their pleasant attitude and energy, they are a credit to you! Also thanks to the people behind the scenes who do all the booking and logistics. A job well done, many thanks. Colin and Glenis Weeks. "



Mrs Orde

"Thank you for sending me the e-mail below with the good news that my brothers shipment was due to arrive in the USA yesterday, 27 August. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your very efficient and personal service - you made the experience far less stressful than I had expected which is very much appreciated. "



Jo Foster

"I want to say a huge thank you to Ablemove for such an amazing service. We've used other moving companies over the years and never had anything like the service we got from you, start to finish. I wanted to say an especial thank you to the two guys that moved our stuff on Monday - I'm sorry, I was so stressed that I instantly forgot their names as soon as they introduced themselves! They were absolutely fantastic - and funny, they made us laugh which was great on moving day. I didn't get a chance to thank them or say goodbye at the time because I was busy with my baby, but I'd be grateful if you could pass on my thanks to them and wish them all the best. "



Mr and Mrs Van de Hoef

"I felt I had to write and thank you for the excellent service your two operatives provided on the day. They couldn't have been more helpful which was greatly appreciated by my Husband and I, and we would have no hesitation in using your company again in future or recommending you to others. "



Alison Tevndale

"They were exceptional! a truly delightful team of 4, each and every one being courteous, compassionate and helpful. they showed intelligence and initiative, when required, and kept me in the loop at all times. There was a lightness of spirit, which is a compliment to the company, since the guys genuinely seemed to enjoy their work. They could not have worked harder, investing energy and commitment to get the job done efficiently. I really cannot commend them highly enough. Everything pleased me. Mr. Weston was more than helpful, informative and considerate. The team of guys was superb and the service excellent. 5 stars. "



Sheila White - Moved to Oregan, US

"Dear Matt and staff, Just a line to let you know that my goods arrived here safely last Wednesday. I would like to commend the two gentlemen who came to the house in Honiton on the excellent packing job they did on all my furniture. It was a pleasure to do business with you and I would like to wish you and all your staff a very happy festive season. With regards, Sheila A. White "



Mr & Mrs Honey

"We would like to thank you and all the team at Weston and Edwards for your help with our move to the UK. The crews and each end of the job were great and very helpful in what was a difficult move for us physically and emotionally. Kind regards Philip and Nadege Honey "



Packing

Generally, there are three main choices for packing:

- You can pack everything yourselves, in which case we can supply all the cartons and packing materials.
- We can pack everything.
- We can just pack your breakables and you pack the remainder.

Whatever you require, the choice is yours!

D.I.Y. Packing - FREE BOXES!!!
 
D.I.Y. Packing - FREE BOXES!!! If you choose to pack the smalls and breakables yourself, we can supply all the boxes and packing materials that you will need.  These can be delivered well in advance of your move to give you plenty of time and not have a last minute rush.  The cartons are flat and do not take up much room until you need them.  They simply need to be taped, with the tape supplied.  All cartons can be kept by you and returned or collected by us only when you have finished unpacking and it doesn't matter how long you take

The boxes are free of charge if we get them back. We deliver and collect free of charge on the UK mainland. (We charge a fully refundable deposit on the cartons)

 
 
Packing Materials
 
Packing Materials Standard cartons - 46x46x51cm (18"x18"x20")
For china, glass, pots & pans, linen etc

Book / small cartons - 46x46x30cm (18"x18"x12")

Half size cartons for heavy items - books, cd's etc

Wardrobe cartons: Our staff will normally pack all your hanging clothes as part of a standard 'Owner Pack' move but you may have them in advance if, for instance you are dismantling or selling your wardrobes.

Plain paper: For packing breakables - no dirty glasses to wash after the move. 

Bubble Wrap: For more delicate items

Acid free tissue paper: For lead crystal and silver - no damage through tarnishing etc which can happen if stored in boxes for any length of time.

5 Ply paper export blankets: To protect delicate veneered furniture - will not snag on loose corners.

Polythene mattress and three-piece suite covers: To prevent soiling to upholstery.
 
 
Professional Packing service
 
Professional Packing service Sit back and leave it all to us - our staff will do everything for you.  Everything will be packed into labelled boxes, on the day of the move or a day before (whatever suits you), therefore reducing disruption to the household routine.

All our staff are experienced and trained so you know your delicate possessions will be handled with the utmost care and safely transported

 
 
Part packing
 
Part packing You may prefer to pack some goods yourself and have us pack others.  Our customer's wishes are our priority and we will, therefore, fall in with your requirements.

The most common request is for us to pack just the breakables - with our expertise these items will not get damaged.  You then pack the remainder with materials that we can supply - scroll up to D.I.Y. packing.

Top tips when moving house...

1. Get a quotation well in advance. Either complete our quotation form or make an appointment with our removals estimator. Proper planning ensures a smooth and trouble-free move.

2. If you have time, get rid of all your unwanted items and rubbish in advance - it's lovely to move into a new home, without unwanted clutter.

3. Doing your own packing? Anything that will fit into a box should be packed. Other loose items, garden tools for instance, can be taped together. Don't overfill the boxes. It's best to use our cartons as they are tailor-made for the job.

4. Items can be left in drawers if they're not too heavy, and if the drawers are removable (Our chaps can take the drawers out, put the carcass in the truck and replace the drawers to cut down the amount of packing that you have to do)

5. Freezers can usually stay full. Perhaps put the food in bags/baskets, so that if we struggle, we can take the food out prior to loading, and put back in for transit. We are often able to plug in the freezer on an overnight move.

6. Keep all keys (filing cabinets, safe, wardrobes) together in a safe place.

7. Self-assembly furniture is best dismantled before moving.

8. Prepare a survival pack for the things you will need on moving day - toys, kettle, passports and for the first day in your new home ie: bedding. Keep this separately and make sure the removal men know.

9. Let your mover know beforehand if you haven't managed to get your packing done, got rid of stuff or anything else you haven't asked for in your removal quote. That gives us time to make the necessary arrangements.

10. Make sure your removal company is aware of any access difficulties at either property.

11. People to notify of your change of address: Doctors, dentists, banks, Gas, Electricity, Royal Mail, phone company, D.V.L.A (Driving licence), Friends and relatives!

12. Check that we are available before you commit to a moving date.
