Another Happy Customer Review From Josh

We used this company for a simple pick up and drop off from Southend to West Byfleet. Booking was easy and the job was completed quickly, easily and without hassle. Their communication and organisation was excellent compared with other companies we have used and we will definitley be using them again if we have any more jobs in the area. I recommend using them.

A little moving tip from Southend Removals

When packing your plates and bowls for the big move simple nip down to your local supermarket and buy some paper plates and bowls, then when packing place a paper plate in between every plate and this will then greatly reduce the risk of any cracks or chips. Then bubble wrap and place inside the removal box ready for your home removal.

Our latest house removal review!

Really impressed with the great group of guys who helped us move. Arrived on time and helped pack up a 1 bed flat and move to a townhouse. Helped dismantel a small shed and they put back up at new location. Also, managed to get a sofa up onto the first floor with a feat of geometry-genius. Would definitely recommend to friends and family for future moves. On the whole they greatly exceeded expectations so thanks guys!

A little moving advice...

If the removal quote sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. If someone offers to move your belongings for just £15 then think about the extras they probably forgot to mention...

• What is their minimum hourly charge?
• Will you be paying for another hour if you over run by 5 minutes?
• Is VAT included?
• Is there a fuel surcharge?
• Is there a mileage surcharge?
• Will helping you carry everything cost extra?

These are just some of the extra's that you may be faced with when it is time to settle the bill, so be sure to ask about them when getting your quote.

Exchanging homes?

Swapping houses can be more stressful than a straight forward move into an empty property, and if both tenant's are using a different removal company it can make things even more stressful. Southend Removals offer discounted rates to both tenants if they both use Southend Removals to carry out their home moves. Please call or email for a quotation.
