If you do not see the answer to your question below, feel free to contact us at any time and speak to one of our friendly team.

How much will it cost?

Costs vary, especially depending on exactly where you are moving from and to, the best thing to do is arrange for a free quotation, our friendly team will come and look at what you have to move, and work out a price for you; we are one of the most competitively priced house movers in Warwickshire.

What areas do you cover?

We are based in Rugby and most our moves originate from the local Warwickshire amd West Midlands area including Leicester, Northampton, Leamington Spa, Kenilworth, Warwick, Stratford upon Avon, Nuneaton, Hinckley and Rugby. We travel to literally anywhere in the UK.

Experienced Staff

Are you fully insured?

Absolutely, and we are members of a range of industry associations and approved by the Office of Fair Trading, so you can feel assured of absolutely professional services.

How can I arrange parking bay suspension?

If it applies to you, get in contact with your local council as soon as possible to ensure everything is cleared on time; you just need to fill out a simple form.

Can you move antiques or items like pianos?

We have been for almost thirty five years; make sure you point anything out to our team when they initially survey and we will make sure we bring along all the necessary packing materials to move delicate items safely.

Will you dismantle large items of furniture?

If requested at the quotation stage we can dismantle and reassemble furniture to the best of our ability.

Will my furniture be placed as required at my new home?

Help us ensure everything is properly labelled when we pack and we can unload everything into its proper place, unfortunately we cannot help you move things around trying out different room arrangements!

Yes; our removals teams are also qualified and insured to pick up items for storage and ensure they are safely packed away; we can deliver them back to you when required as well.
