This service is where your goods will make up part of a larger load going to similar destinations or other destinations on route.
A popular service for simple economical reasons. This is the cheapest way to get the goods delivered.
The duration between collection and delivery will be greater (in comparison to
dedicated loads) due to other planned collections / deliveries en route.
Planning loading and unloading dates for part loads is not always possible at the point of quotation. This scheduling is carried out closer to the moving date, as the routes are planned.
Collection and delivery dates will need to be flexible to take advantage of this type of service.
Whether moving to a rural or urban destination, it is important that we
consider access and parking for a large vehicle at your new property.
The better the initial information that we are supplied with, the more
accurate we can be when planning your relocation. When carrying out
European work, the typical dimensions of vehicles used are:
|Rigid Truck||Similar to a double decker bus||12m (39ft)||4.15m (13 ft 6 inches)|
|Road Train||Similar to an articulated truck||16m (53ft)||4.15m (13 ft 6 inches)|
With clear concise information, we can plan means and ways of executing your relocation in situations where there is restricted access. In these instances we may opt to tranship the goods, this is where the main vehicle will park in the closest possible location near to your property and unloading will be carried out by shuttling the goods using a smaller vehicle. In other situations we may require the use of an external elevator due to internal staircases and lifts being too small to accept the goods. In these circumstances the goods can be delivered through the window or over a balcony.
It is advisable for clients who are looking at moving to Europe, to contact our office and arrange for an
estimator to call on you at a mutually convenient time. 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.
