We were recently asked to help an elderly couple move from their house in Croydon to a bungalow in County Durham. As they had difficulty communicating and getting around they decided to move and be closer to their family.

In order to get an idea of how much there was to take to the new property one of our surveyors visited their home. He explained how many men and lorries would be needed and how long it would take to complete the move.

To make the relocation go through as smoothly as possible and coordinate the move, we were regularly in touch with our customer’s family members, solicitors and estate agents.

Case details and moving solution

Moving from: Three bedroom house.

Number of men and lorries: 3 men and an 18 ton 2400 cuft lorry.

Cubic ft: 1,800.

Number of boxes:  75 boxes packed by our staff.

All furniture and items from the house, including a dining room table and six chairs, cabinets and desks, also a large bed and appliances.

As part of the move, we also transported some valuable paintings ensuring they were safely wrapped and packed for the long journey.

Potential time for full move:  Three days
