Here at F Smith & Son, our priority is to offer a quality, reliable and personal service to all of our clients.
There are many reasons why you may need extra storage, ranging from builders/decorators needing some furniture moved out to free up enough space to work, through to you just not having enough space in the property. Whatever the reason, we can store single items to whole house contents for a few days, months or indefinitely.
If you are buying and selling, it can be difficult to combine the sale of your property and the purchase of a new property as this generally involves different parties within a chain who all have varied agendas. Today it is very common to store the contents of an entire house so as not to lose the sale of a property. This puts you in a good position as a purchaser due to the fact that you will be able to move very quickly and not depend on others below you in the chain. More importantly, it may give you better bargaining power when making an offer on a property.
When considering using storage facilities, it is also important to consider how you are going to get the goods to the store and delivered to their end destination. Whilst providing clients with quotations for storage, we are able to offer removal quotations for moving the goods into and out of store (out of store charges depend on a final destination address being known, otherwise some assumptions may have to be made).
Our warehouse is predominately made up of 250 cubic feet wooden storage containers, therefore storage charges are based on our estimation of how many containers are required. Please be aware that loose storage is available upon request.
There are many benefits of using our storage and removal services when compared to self-storage depots, some of these benefits have been outlined below:
We at F Smith & Son have been trading for over 75 years, giving us the wealth of knowledge that is required for a successful and professional removals company. We have been refining our removal techniques through experience, training and the use of modern equipment to enable us to meet the high standards that we set.
It is advisable for clients who are requiring short or long term storage, 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 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.
