STORAGE

There are many reasons why you might need storage :

You may be removing house and need storage as your new home is not quite ready

You may have a work committment abroad on a temporary basis

You may be renting your home out and want to store your personal items, valuables and maybe furniture

You may be having work undertaken at your home and the builders require effects removing or you may be decorating and need some extra space

HOW DOES IT WORK

Once our surveyor has viewed the effects to be removed and stored, or you provide us with a detailed list of effects, we can they let you know the amount of space that you will need

We store your effects in special wooden storage containers, these containers can be forklifted onto our specially adapted removal vehicles by means of a fork reach truck (see illustration below)

Once we know how may containers you will require, these would be lifted onto the vehicle and brought to your home, when the vehicle arrives the staff will start to load each container, they will take an inventory of effects that are loaded into each container and the items are wrapped in woollen blankets to protect them, all soft furnishings i.e. beds, mattresses, sofas, chairs etc. are placed into polythene covers. After the staff have completed the loading of the containers, the doors are put on and sealed with special sprung steel clips. The vehicle is then taken back to our warehouse, where the containers are lifted back off the vehicle and placed securely in our purpose built storage warehouse. They will not be opened until you request their re-delivery to your address.

THE STORAGE DEPOT

The storage depot is clean, dry and secure, there is protected by a 24 hour Redcare monitoring system. The premises are insurance approved. For your further piece of mind they are inspected by the National Guild of Removers & Storers to ensure they meet their exacting standards and of course you are invited to view the facilities prior to using them.
