Book an Onsite Survey
Planning your perfect move starts with an onsite survey.
Our surveyor will discuss what items you would like moved from each room, explain your packing options and answer any queries you may have at this stage.
Our onsite survey also allows us to determine what vehicle will be required for your move depending on access to your property. This will give us plenty of detail to provide you with an accurate, fixed price quotation.

Get in touch
First, drop in for a coffee and a chat, give us a call or contact us online. Your Personal Move Consultant will arrange an appointment for our surveyor to visit.
It’ll be helpful if you have a plan of what you would like moved or stored, and have any queries ready to ask your surveyor during the survey.
Your surveyor will arrive on time to assess your moving and storage needs and talk through your options. Feel free to ask any questions about the move at this stage. The survey itself will generally take between 30–60minutes.
Based on the surveyor's report, your Personal Move Consultant will prepare a tailored quotation for you. Remember, they’ll also be on hand for advice throughout your whole move.
