Free pre-move survey

Answer questions without the cost

Buying a house is expensive enough - there are no surprise costs with us!

We’ll visit you before your move day to discuss your exact requirements, and our experienced estimator will carry out a pre-move survey, completely free of charge. No cost, no catch. From there, we’ll give you a written, fixed-price quotation which won’t budge on price. 

If you’d rather do this digitally, no problem! We can carry out virtual video surveys, which is ideal if you’re looking for a quote while you’re away from home, or strapped for time.

A family business you can trust

We pride ourselves on being an open and honest family business, with complete transparency at every stage, whether you're moving or storing. We’re fully audited and insured, so you can relax knowing that you and your belongings are in safe hands.

With over 40 years of industry experience and expert knowledge, we're here to strip away the stress from moving house and we always treat your possessions with the utmost care and respect.
