Home Removal Services

Moving home? Whether you're moving locally within Nottinghamshire or further afield, Ballards can help.

Here you'll find everything you need to know about our house removals services. Much more than just a removals company, Ballards also offer pre and post-move cleaning services, house clearance and recycling. And for "do-it-yourself" moves, we can provide boxes and packaging or even our man with a van service. 

Based next to the A1 just north of Newark and close to Retford, we know the Nottinghamshire, Lincolshire and East Midlands areas very well and we also specialise in long distance moves, within the UK, Europe and beyond. Our experienced team can take care of everything for you and we're happy to provide quick, free, no obligation quotes.

Services For Home Removals


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.

Asset 8

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.

Our pre-move survey

We’ll visit you before your move 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. On this day you are obliged to vacate your current property by 2pm and in turn you should get the keys to your new property then. Your move will be planned to help you meet your legal obligations and be clear of your current property in time.

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 family and you won't be upside down for weeks. It’s usually worth having a sort out before we arrive, rather than moving unwanted items with you.

We do usually start the packing and preparation prior to move day, to make sure this goes as smoothly as possible. We’ll agree your exact schedule during your pre-move survey.

Included in the part/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
  • Mobile wardrobe cartons
  • Goods In Transit Insurance 
  • Furniture recycling/rehoming
