How big are your vans?
We have a fleet of vehicles that are all capable of carrying the smallest or biggest loads, from small transits to 3.5 tonne Luton vans, we decide on the best for your move.
How many people do I need to move a 4 bed house?
4 bedroom houses vary, we’ve seen some that have just one reception room and others that are Manor Houses with 8 reception rooms! It’s best that we visit to give the best quote, or you fill in our inventory.
General for a 4 bed, 2 reception room house, we would need 3 men and 2 Luton vans.
What is the average sized 3 bedroomed house?
A 3 bedroom house removal usually needs just two vans and can be done with 2 or 3 men in one trip, however we suggest you fill in our inventory as you could find you have less belonging than you though and so could be entitled to a much lower house removals quote
I live in Scotland can I use your York removals services?
If you are moving to York, yes of course you can use our house removals services. We don’t, for instance, do house removals from Scotland to Scotland as this is far away from our base and would cost you more than using a local firm.
Will you help with my packing?
We don’t help with your packing, except for packing the boxes and items safely onto our vans, however we can recommend people who will.
More House Removals FAQs
Do you supply boxes for home removals?
We don’t supply any boxes for home removals but we can give you insider knowledge of the best places to buy new or second hand boxes cheaply for your home removal.
My move is long distance, will it be done in a day?
This depends on the size of your property, the amount of miles you are travelling and the time it will take to load our vans at your current home. Sometimes it’s best to split the move into two days, as once we’ve packed the vans and travelled for 4 or 5 hours, it is usually quite late. All of this is taken into consideration with our house removals quote and included in the price.
What does your house removals quote include?

- Labour of how ever many men are needed to move your items

Our friendly smile comes free!
Do you move pets too?
We suggest any pets travel with you as it’s quite an unsettling time for them and they may behave erratically. They need to be with their family. We can of course move pets such as hamsters in cages but wouldn’t like to take responsibility for looking after a family dog for example on a motorway in a very large vehicle!

We are two families currently living apart, moving to the same house. Can you do both removals?
If you are both moving to York we can move both families. If you are both moving from York we can move you together. If one of you is moving from a destination outside of York to another location outside of York we recommend using another local house removals service for their move, as it would be doubtful, with travelling that we’d be able to move you both in one day.
