Any Questions?


Depositing goods is just like opening a bank account. So only in exceptional circumstances may people other than the signatories to the original warehouse contract give instructions.


Due to new laws introduced by the FSA in 2005 we no longer sell insurance.  Clients are now covered through our liability which is fully approved by the British Association of Removers (BAR).  Please contact us with any queries.


If there are some items you may need back before others, inform our estimator when he calls to make the quotation. On moving day, it's sensible to remind the foreman and he will plan the packing accordingly. If you leave it as an after-thought, it can be expensive!

What should not go in store?

Never send precious items such as jewelry, money, deeds, coins or collections into store. Movers cannot accept hazardous goods such as paint, aerosols, gas bottles or other potentially dangerous items. Obviously, no plants, food or animals should be sent for storage. We also recommend that everything going into store is clean and dry - so think about any items that live outside the house and get them ready well in advance.
