Please bare in mind that we are now under no obligation to work or to complete moves. The business and the staff have made the combined decision to do our best to keep things moving for our customers at this difficult time. This means that we are extremely busy and all working very hard. Please allow us to operate safely, allow us plenty of working space and please cleanse your home and belongings before our arrival. Please do all that you can to help us and continue to help others.

  • We are no longer offering home surveys until further notice but we are prepared to provide prices for your move via video call, FaceTime, by video recording or buy pictures which can be sent to us via email, Facebook or WhatsApp.
  • It is the customers full responsibility to notify us of any symptoms or cases within their home.
  • A member of your moving team will arrive to your door to fully discuss your move on the day.
  • An assessment will be taken out on each job before work commences to discuss any concerns regarding the current situation and how this may affect you or your move.
  • All staff are supplied with gloves and face masks to be used where necessary.
  • All vans are equipped with hand sanitiser.

  • All staff have been briefed on the current situation and it is completely their choice whether to work or not.
  • We advise that on the morning of your move that you turn off all heating and open all windows to ensure good ventilation. This is to be repeated at the new house.
  • In the event of a customer having symptoms, the staff will arrive as normal and can go over the move with you by way of video message (where this is an option).
