House Removals? A Walk in The Park

House removal work in tight spaces

We’ve recently completed yet another successful house removal job in the Nottingham Park Estate.

Removals services in the Nottingham Park Estate

The Park is a private estate, situated in the centre of Nottingham with easy access to all of the city’s facilities, whilst retaining and “old world” charm and peacefulness, which are just two of the reasons why people love to live there, and property prices are extremely high as a result.

The charm of The Park includes the gated access on all but one of the entrances, parking restricted to permit holders only and of course the famous gas street lighting system, which helps to create The Park’s unique atmosphere.

The Park has a special set of challenges which can catch less experienced removal firms out, however the Ballards team is well versed in the aspects which need thinking about and planning for, including:

  • Several steep hills and narrow roads, with overhanging trees
  • Restricted parking (permits only)
  • Houses and apartments with gated access
  • Awkward entrances and lots of flights of stairs

Many of the beautiful buildings in The Park, for example those built by Watson Fothergill or Thomas Chambers Hine amongst others were built in the 1800s and have listed status. Several of these old buildings have been converted into apartments, which can mean that in preserving the buildings’ original features, access and flow within the buildings might be restricted. Some of the loveliest apartments are built in what used to be attics or servants quarters and these tend to have sloping ceilings and odd corners – all adding to their charm, but making it more difficult to manoeuvre large items of furniture.

High value property removals

There is a real mixture of accommodation in the Park, from 1 bedroom flats through to some very grand properties. This is one of the more affluent areas in Nottingham so, regardless of the property type, the furniture and other possessions tend to have a higher value that the average move. This means that they need to put a lot of trust in their removals firm. Property owners also tend to be very discerning, expecting a high standard of service and security from their removals company – and The Ballards team is always happy to rise to the challenge!

Here’s a recent testimonial from a Nottingham customer:

“Knowledgeable and cheerful! Advice on piano move, American fridge and a large sofa in restricted space were invaluable on the day.
A very sleek and efficient team that made the move less stressful and a success and should be commended for their friendly yet professional performance.
The administration was equally good and the survey was thorough. They were helpful in dealing with our change of plans on the day before the move when we needed to add a king size bed to the removal. A job well done in every respect. “
