Pre-Move Survey

Prior to your moving day, we’ll visit you to talk about your specific moving needs. Our professional estimator will then conduct a Pre-Move Survey to provide you with your various options, a move plan and a  fixed price quotation.

Packing Service

Ensuring that everything is packed up ready for a house move is a big task, which is why it is so key that you get professional quality boxes and packing materials, so you know all your belongings are safely and securely ready for moving.

Handyman Service

We also have a handyman service available for house removals, this means our team will dismantle and reassemble belongings which were agreed upon during the site survey - this applies to things such as beds, sheds and wardrobes.

Completion Day

On the day of your move, you will be obliged to ensure the current property has been vacated by 2pm and so you should also receive your keys to the new property at this point. The move will be planned out to ensure you meet all legal obligations and have vacated your current property in the set time frame.

What a very personable, very professional crew Ballards provided for our move. The guys obviously enjoy their job, taking great care and looking unhurried, but somehow managing it all with speed. Took all our stress away. Fantastic.

Hi there. Just a message concerning our removals on the 4th and 5th December. Our crew-Ian Sadler, Dave Talbot, Bradley Leech and Will went out of their way to make sure our move went as smoothly as possible. They had awful weather, a difficult drive over The Peak District and still were obliging and cheerful whilst moving our belongings. Great team!

Ballards have just moved us into our new home in Nottingham. The provided the ‘pack up’ service. Brilliant service, very helpful, arrived promptly and were very careful with our possessions. Mark and the team were very efficient in unloading to the new house. They were a very friendly team. Would thoroughly recommend.

Ballard’s removed all of our furniture from our house into their storage facility with great professionalism and a friendly service. Although we thought it would be with them for a few weeks due to several mishaps our chattels remained with them for 6 months. We eventually moved onto our new property this week and Ballard’s arrived spot on time as arranged and very carefully unloaded our 4 containers into the appropriate rooms in our bungalow. This they did again professionally, efficiently and with a friendly smile. We have since unpacked and everything was as we left it, not one breakage. Thank you so much for all your help. We would 100% recommend Ballard’s for all your removals and storage.

House Removal Services

Our pre-move survey

We’ll visit you before the big day to discuss your requirements, and our experienced estimator will carry out a pre-move survey. From here, we’ll give you a written, fixed-price quotation.

Moving day

Move day is also known as completion day. When this arrives, you’re obliged to vacate your current property by 2pm and in turn, you should get the keys to your new property. We’ll carefully plan your move around this exchange to make sure that you meet your legal obligations and are clear of your current property in time.

Our self-packing service

If you’d prefer to pack your possessions yourselves, you can. We’ll provide boxes and packing materials so that you can do it your way. It’s a great way to keep the cost of moving down. From our initial pre-move survey, we’ll establish how many boxes you need, which size vehicle is required and the number of crewmembers who can support you.

Included in the self-pack service:

  • Pre-delivery of strong, professional boxes, in two sizes
  • Pre-delivery of tape, packaging paper and bubble wrap, if required
  • Carpet and hardwood flooring protection
  • Hygienic one-use mattress bags
  • Stair protection
  • Specialist sofa, armchair and soft furnishing padded covers
  • Flat Screen TV padded covers
  • Padded transit blankets
  • Mobile wardrobe cartons
  • Goods In Transit Insurance
  • Furniture recycling/ rehoming
  • A purpose-built specialist removals vehicle

Our Full Packing Service

With this service, you can choose to let Ballards pack and prepare everything for you.

 

If you choose for us to do all the packing, packaging and preparation, your home can stay as it is now. You don't need to disrupt your living arrangement and you won't be upside-down for weeks. Of course, it’s usually worth having a sort-out before we arrive, rather than moving any unwanted items with you!

We typically start the packing and preparation prior to move day to make sure this goes as smoothly as possible for you. Don't worry - we’ll agree to your exact schedule during your pre-move survey so that the only surprise is how seamless the whole process is.

Included in the full service:

  • Boxes and all packaging materials
  • Packing, preparation and careful labelling of all boxes and small items
  • Carpet and hardwood flooring protection
  • Hygienic one-use mattress bags
  • Stair protection
  • Specialist sofa, armchair and soft furnishing padded covers
  • Flat screen TV padded covers
  • Padded transit blankets
