Grants Removals and Storage recently moved a customer from their property in Leatherhead just over 210 miles away to a great house in Tavistock. 

Our customer had a five-bedroom home with approximately 3,000 cubic feet of items to move, so they wanted an experienced team for the long-distance relocation. 

As they had so much to move, they needed our 7.5-ton and 18-ton lorries. They used our part-packing service for their glass and china, and the customer packed everything else. 

Del Grant, the owner of Grants Removals and Storage, says: “Our customer was moving to a property near a river and it was not easy to access. To comply with the long-distance driving regulations, our team had to stay in a hotel after the long drive to West Devon before they could unload the lorries. 

“We needed to find a hotel with enough space to park our lorries safely and securely but be close to the new house.

Because of the awkward access, we had to tranship everything from the 18-ton lorry to the 7.5-ton lorry before we could get close enough to the customer’s new house.”
