Handy Hints & Tips

  • Plan your move well in advance. If possible contact your chosen BAR Member up to a month prior to the move, even if you don't know the exact date. They will explain what services they offer and help you begin planning for the move.
  • BAR Members provide free, no obligation, clear and fair quotes. As professional removers they can explain to you exactly what they offer and the areas you need to think about. This way you can plan your time and concentrate on the essentials.
  • Ask the movers for packing costs. They are trained professionals that know how best to protect your belongings, using the right materials and they’ll do it in a fraction of the time it will take you. They’ll also be happy to discuss insurance arrangements with you.
  • When planning your move be aware that some removal days are busier than others, such as Fridays, Bank Holidays and the end of the month. Also remember that if somethings goes wrong with a sale or purchase your solicitor may not be available on a Saturday.
  • ALWAYS look for a mover that displays the BAR TSI Approved Code Badge.
