UK removal service

We have been providing both local and nationwide house and office moves for over 30 years and have built a reputation for a high quality personal service that has seen many of our customers move with us more than once.

 

MW Cave removal vehicles are modern, clean, fully equipped and suitable for professional transportation. All our vehicles carry tools, transit blankets, straps, trolleys, hanging garment carriers and extra packaging materials.

 

We provide and deliver all packing materials you may require which include: cartons/tape/bubblewrap and packing paper, wardrobe cartons and mattress bags are also available. On the day of your move if the weather is particularly bad we’ll put down floor protectors, and for local moves we can collect all your packing debris. All this at no additional cost!

 

Removals can be very stressful and we try our best to limit that stress –

so you can book a date with us and change it if required at no extra cost.

General Advice & useful tips

It's a good idea to make a list for each room showing all items present.

This could also be useful as an inventory for an estimation.

Financials

Make sure you are able to bank in you new location, you may have to change branch or bank.

We understand that you may feel more comfortable moving jewellery, valuable and
finical documents yourself.

We can provide any boxes or containers
if necessary.

 

Utilities and Services

Give notice to utilities; telephone, gas, water, electricity, broadband, digital TV, etc that
you are moving.

Check for the best suppliers at your relocation.

Contact the utilities for your new house and ensure you have the services you require.

Consider other requirements at your new location, such as: GP, schools, vet, dentist.

 

Notification

Send out change of address cards to banks, employers, local authorities, credit and insurance companies, subscription, DVLA, DSS and of course friends and family.

Cancel deliveries/services; milk, newspapers, gardeners, cleaners, etc.

Inform any clubs or societies of the move.

Pay the post office to reroute any mail
for 3-6 months.

If you have children apply in advance to the
local LEA in you new area for school places.

Tidy Up

Basically declutter! Clear out your garage, basement, loft, cupboards, of any unwanted items.

Have a car boot sale! but make sure all appliances and systems are serviced and working.

Use the contents of your fridge, freezer and larder before you move.

Collect any belongings you have out on loan
or repairs.

 

Day of move

We offer a packing service which is carried out prior to your removal day. We offer various packing options which we are happy to discuss at the survey.

Keep out until last; kettle, tea, coffee and biscuits, vacuum cleaner and your children's box.

If your removal involves an overnight stay on route, pack your night time essential and a clean set of clothes in your car.

 

Pets and Plants

Consider in advance how you can transport and re-house any animals.

Consider only moving you favourite plants; just like animals, plants suffer distress when moved.

 

Children

Try involving your children so that the look forward to moving into the new house.

Our staff always take extra careful when children are around the removal process as moving heavy items can be dangerous, and vans are not safe places for children.

A good idea would be to have the children's box loaded last onto the van and first out again.
