Questions to ask your removal company 

Yes we can provide you with all packing materials, and free delivery.

Can you pack for us?

Can I leave the drawers in my furniture full?

If the items are not breakable (i.e. clothes or soft items), we will be able to move the furniture full or alternatively remove the drawers if the items is too heavy but if the items are fragile in any way, please remove and pack separately.

What should I do with my TV?

Pack in original boxes if you have them, but don’t worry, we carry wrapping blankets on our vehicles and our team will be able to ensure it’s correctly protected in transportation to your new home.

What should I do with my hanging clothes?

On the day of your removal, we will bring hanging robe boxes, your items will be transported and hung in your new home.  These cartons will have to be empty before the end of day, as we need them every day.

Do you take gas bottles or paint?

Our insurance doesn’t cover us to transport these items, so please make alternative plans for them.

What time will you arrive on moving day?

We normally arrive between 8.00 – 8.30 am on moving day, unless a different time is arranged.
