Home removal

Are you planning a house or a flat move? Do you think it would be too hard for you? Are you unsure as to where to start and how to prepare items for moving? Do you want to be sure the move will be smooth and without complications? Do you need to move today or tomorrow?

Please fill in the inquiry form or provide us with your phone number in the express form and we will contact you within 20 minutes. We will be happy to give you advice on what and how to prepare for the move. Arrange a free visit from our surveyor to your home which will allow us to prepare a service that will best suit your needs. Our surveyor will then suggest the best course of action for your home removal, and will prepare a quotation.

Preparation for a home removal:

It is very important to thoroughly prepare all items when moving a house to prevent potential damage in the course of the move. Ideal preparation for a house removal includes the following:

Clothing

We use wardrobe boxes for moving clothes on the hangers; the boxes will protect clothes even from creases. We put clothing without hangers into cardboard boxes.

Porcelain

Never wrap porcelain in newspapers. The newspaper ink could come off on the porcelain; it is very difficult to remove it. Always wrap porcelain and glass into packing paper that has no print on it. If you want to be a 100% sure that your items are packed safely, we recommend to wrap them with bubble wrap.

Electronics

We recommend packing electronic equipment in bubble wrap and cardboard. Alternatively, you can wrap electronics in blankets.

Furniture

We recommend that any large or heavy furniture be dismantled where possible. We suggest not using tape to seal any two parts of furniture (for example, cupboard doors) together. Tape (except M3) leaves glue on the furniture; this might cause permanent damage in the process of removing the tape. Use stretch wrap to secure the furniture.

Books

Place all books into small cardboard boxes. Always fill the boxes to the edges.
Books are heavy, but boxes that are only half full cannot be placed on top of each other as they will collapse. Never pack books by tying them together with a piece of string.

Office removal

An office removal requires thorough preparation of and minimal disruption to the company. You can fully rely on us in this respect. We always plan office removals in such a way as to minimise disruption to your work. If you wish, we can also plan the removal for a weekend or evening.
An office removal is always a very demanding transfer which requires a professional approach. We will arrange for our surveyor to visit your office, this will allow us to prepare a service that will best suit your needs.
