Is it necessary to have a home survey done?

No, you can get a quote without a survey, but you will need to provide us with as much information as you can, such as how many items you have and what type they are, the type of house you are moving from and to, number of floors and any unusual access requirements.

Can we book a moving date provisionally?

We will provisionally book your removal but if we get a firm booking later we will advise you that the date is no longer available.

How much notice do you need for a removal?

For safety reasons and to make sure there is no damage, drawers in large furniture must be emptied. Drawers in smaller furniture can be left in, depending on the contents, especially if they are breakable.
