|How does it work?|
| All goods are stored in containers in our modern, insulated warehouse. This is a detached building, fully alarmed, surrounded by an 8' high security fence and floodlit at night. Container Storage, in our warehouse keeps your goods free from dust, damp, mildew etc and items cannot go 'missing'.|
The removal lorry, with the containers on board, arrives at your home. All items are wrapped in special removal blankets, to prevent damage and are packed into the containers. The containers are then closed, before leaving your home and remain closed until delivery to your new address.
| || || |
| The full containers are loaded and unloaded, at our warehouse, by fork lift truck - a smooth transition from van to warehouse. Manhandling of your goods is halved, when compared to 'loose' storage, thus considerably reducing the risk of damage.|
A detailed inventory is taken of the contents of each container. Access to containers can easily be arranged should you require to retrieve items.
Our 'All Risks' policy, whilst your goods are in storage, includes fire insurance. Some companies will quote separately for this.

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.
