We aspire to be a vital part of our community, providing budget friendly house removals costs around Padiham, Burnley Lancashire and its surrounding areas.

Our goal is to set the standard for Removal services so that a nightmare move, will be far and few between.
Affordable is our Policy
When we are looking through removal companies sometimes we can end up choosing the wrong one, often being let down or worse, sometimes ruining and complicating your all move day. This happens due to many reasons but mostly, it is the cheap removals companies offering cheap prices, underselling themselves, so that on move day, it is not worth it for them. When they turn up, if at all they have no reason to provide you a professional service, since they are not receiving a fair deal for their moving services. A fair trade is what we always aim for, this way, when both sides are happy with the outcome, everyone is happy and can go about smiling the rest of the day.

Moving House Tips
Moving house is not always a simple task. This is why most hire a man with a van who are fully trained to provide an efficient, professional service. Then there is those who prefer to do it themselves. Whether you are moving yourself fully or partly, here are some tips to ensuring your move day is as smooth as possible.
Pack Your Things properly
The best way to pack your items is to acquire boxes for moving house. Newspaper shops and local business's that have goods delivered, often have unwanted boxes. Boxes can also be bought from(insert places). If booking with us, you can request free boxes from us before your move day. Once you have the boxes, it is best to stay organised, writing names of the rooms (e.g John Doe's Bedroom) on them will help the person who moves it into its new home know where to place it. Boxes should be kept manageable to being able to carry at least one. Take care when packing too many books or other heavy items as the box may split when being transported.
If Boxes can not be found, use bin liners, double bagging heavier items and tieing them properly. Do not bag items that will split the bag, make it manageable so that you are able to carry at least 2 when moving.
The rule of thumb when packing is, for items that can be stacked evenly and well, place inside a box (e.g Books, something, something). Fragile Items should also be placed into boxes, cover and separated from one another by bubble wrap or lots of newspaper. Anything that does not stack well in a box place into bags. Anything that does not fit in either, do not pack, transport it singular.
- Make sure all Boxes Can be closed/sealed with celotape and all Bags tied
- Take extra Care when packing fragile items(write Fragile on Box/Bag label)
- Make Bags and Boxes Manageable to carry.
- Label Boxes/Bags
The more organised you try to be, the easier and swifter the move.
With Everything packed properly, dismantling the furniture should be your next priority. Make sure to use the right tools and not to damage or lose the screws, bolts and washers. It is best practice to place all screws etc, into small bags and kept safe. Keep all pieces of the dismantled item together. It is best to take any legs off of sofas, so that when being transported, they are easier to fit through doors. If an item came through your house dismantled, make sure to dismantle before you attempt to take it out, furniture does not shrink the older it gets, so if it didn't go through the first time, it wont go through this time.
Be careful when moving furniture or other heavy items, if it is heavy, carry it with two people even if you think you are capable of carrying it alone. Larger items, that can sometimes be awkward to carry may be manageable but when faced against tight corners or stairs, you can easily damage the property or the furniture itself.
Staying organised and being prepared can save you a lot of time and/or money. When paying man and van companies to transport you, be aware that anything not mentioned in the fixed moving quote they offer you, will cause problems in the long run. If you are disorganised and things are a mess then most companies will add extra charges for the extra time it takes them to help you pack, box and transport. Cheap moving companies may just decide to not do it at all, always make sure to give as much information as possible.
We offer a pay by the hour and fixed rate moving service. Pay by the hour will include all other services you will require(should you request it), where as a fixed quote will be a based upon your needs. Request a quote to get a better idea of how much your moving costs will be. Prices are based on Local Areas around Padiham.
Stacking a van
Does your dad play tetris? If so, throw him on the back of the van and get him using his gaming skills to effeciantly stack your items.
All jokes aside, if your are removing yourself or using our self-load service. Then stacking the van is another important principle to saving you time and money. Our Luton van, is perfect for house removals and man and van work, allowing you to move in one trip baed on an average 2 bed house removal around Padiham. In our van we stack the boxes at the back upon the raised compartment, until there is no room, which then we strap with our transit straps which we allow you to use(ask our driver for instructions on how to use.) Then we place the larger items (e.g double mattereses, large wardrobes etc.) against the back covered in transit blankets, to secure the boxes. Make sure to strap all your goods securely and cover all items that may be scratched with blankets to prevent any damage. We then place items where applicable, a bit like tetris, the better you stack the more room you have, the less money you have to pay, the easier the job.
Be careful when moving glassware or any other fragile items. If possible prevent fragile items from being damaged by covering with bubble wrap and placing last in the van, strapped securely. Our man and van are not responsible for your goods if you are self-loading. Your goods are covered while in transit. For more information on our insurances Vist our T & Cs'
