You will be advised on how we deal with:
General small items
- the rule is, if it will fit in a box, it needs to go in a box. We supply as many boxes as you need on a returnable deposit basis, as well as free packing paper and tape. Special extras we supply at sensible rates are bubble wrap, wine boxes etc.
Televisions and computers - nothing beats the original boxes for this type of electrical equipment. But if these are not available, then our standard boxes will hold the typical monitor and processor unit. Please disconnect the wires before packing. We will blanket wrap televisions and extra care is taken with plasma screens.
Beds - we normally dismantle and reassemble these as part of the service unless they are of special construction.
Freezers - ideally these should be defrosted and empty. We are willing to move all but the very large ones, full, although we then do not accept liability in the event of any damage to them.
Wardrobes - we can offer a dismantling and reassembly service on wardrobes of normal construction. Additional charges are related to the likely time this extra work will take.
Hanging clothes - we bring hanging garment boxes for you to loan on the day of your move. These are mini wardrobes and transport your hanging clothes without creasing them. If you are dismantling wardrobes, we will deliver some sooner and will leave them with you on the day of the move for a short period of time. (Small extra charges may apply for this service).
Contents of chests of drawers - remove breakables and spillable items and these can be moved with light goods if they are strong enough.
Flammables - we absolutely do not carry or store any petrol, Calor gas or any similar highly flammables.
Liquids - whilst we will move any non-noxious liquids that are sensibly packaged, they are not insured should the liquid spill and cause any damage.
Attics - we cannot work in attic areas unless they have safe stairs or ladders, are fully boarded out and are not excessively dusty.
Plants and outside items - these are not usually a problem as long as the assessor is made aware of them during the visit. We will ensure we supply suitable vehicles with sufficient capacity on move day to accommodate the plants. Insurance cover is limited on plants so if they are of special importance to you, do let us know and we will make sure they are carefully transported.
