Working close together with our professional
operatives, your move manager will guide the
relocation according to the plan outlined at
the start and ensure that all milestones are
delivered and reported on.

F Smith & Son continues to deliver on all levels for clients and now is your turn to
experience our number 1 service.

Our trained surveyors will attend your offices at a mutually convenient time and
assess the level of work required. Based on our experience carrying out office
relocations, we will talk you through what we believe to be the optimal process
to carry out your relocation. Each schedule is tailor made and will take into
account any key requirements that your business has, falling in line with your
overall project plan.

We provide free removal quotations within the Greater London, Surrey and Kent
areas, giving you the chance to meet our representative and get a feel for how
we operate. This survey allows us time to evaluate all of your requirements
and generate an accurate quotation.

We understand that it is not always possible for
clients to be available for us to call on them.
This is why we have the option for you to receive an
Estimate simply by completing our online inventory.
However we must bring to your attention that it is
very difficult for removals to be correctly gauged
by submission of an online form internet or by phone.
We advise that you be as accurate as you can when completing this inventory and only use this as a guide when budgeting or comparing prices.
