Real-life scenarios from helping real-life people in their real-life moves.

Jeff & Kim

Our clients, Jeff and Kim moved from a 4-bedroom house in Grays to Gosport in Hampshire. Following the survey, we estimated that their possessions would fill an 18-ton truck. With contents including a bespoke 4 seater chesterfield sofa, a vast collection of books, over thirty flower pots and several large workshop tools, we understood that the removal could not be rushed.

Read Full Case Study

Whilst some companies claimed that they could undertake the move in one day, we prepared a quotation over two days. On completion day, our 4 man crew arrived at 8:30 am and after a brief introduction started to clear the upstairs’ contents. As each room was cleared, Jeff followed the crew with the hoover. Downstairs followed suit, and by 11:15 am, the whole household had been cleared and safely loaded onto our truck.

The garage and garden contents were removed and secured on the back of the truck. By 12:30 pm, the property was totally clear and our clients were ready to make the journey to Hampshire.

Our truck returned to our secure depot in Pipps Hill, where it was parked securely our warehouse overnight. Jeff and Kim arrived in Gosport at 3:30 pm to be told that the completion had not yet gone through due to a fault somewhere in their chain. At 5:30 pm, a special license had been approved for access to their new home, but they were told that they couldn’t collect the keys until the morning.

Whilst the other parties in their chain faced additional charges for emergency storage and re-delivery, our clients’ schedules would continue without hitch or compromise.

Exhausted, the couple retired to their nearby hotel for a meal followed by a peaceful night’s sleep. Our crew left Essex at 6 am the following day and arrived in Gosport at 9:30 am to be met by relaxed and well-rested customers. By 1 pm, the truck was unloaded and all goods had been placed in the correct rooms ready to be unpacked and put away.
