"I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say it has been an absolute pleasure doing business with you for the last 5 years. Thank you for looking after my belongings for so long - much longer than I anticipated. Thank you for always being so quick to answer my queries and for keeping me updated so regularly about my storage space. Thank you also for being so very kind and helpful with my family and finally thank you for taking such good care of my furniture - my niece tells me that everything came out of its packaging as good as new."

Any Questions?


Depositing goods is just like opening a bank account. So only in exceptional circumstances may people other than the signatories to the original warehouse contract give instructions.


Due to new laws introduced by the FSA in 2005 we no longer sell insurance.  Customers are now covered through our liability which is fully approved by the British Association of Removers (BAR).  Please contact us with any queries.


We are happy to arrange for carpets, curtains and soft furnishings to be cleaned before they go into store or when they come out. Just ask for details.


If there are some items you may need back before others, inform our estimator when he calls to make the quotation. On moving day, it's sensible to remind the foreman and he will plan the packing accordingly. If you leave it as an after-thought, it can be expensive!

Domestic Appliances?

If domestic appliances are going into store, you should defrost the refrigerator or freezer about a week beforehand (leaving the doors open) and ensure your washing machine/spin dryer is clean and dry. It is a good idea to put some silica gel bags inside the cabinets.

What should not go in store?

Never send precious items such as jewelry, money, deeds, coins or collections into store. Movers cannot accept hazardous goods such as paint, aerosols, gas bottles or other potentially dangerous items. Obviously, no plants, food or animals should be sent for storage. We also recommend that everything going into store is clean and dry - so think about any items that live outside the house and get them ready well in advance.
