Professional house moving in the UK and around Europe.

Moving house, no matter how large or small, can be a traumatic experience at the best of times and sometimes nigh on unbearable. For these reasons, it is imperative that a professional removal company is employed.

Goodwins is that professional company. We own and operate a fleet of modern, fully equipped removal vehicles ranging from a small 3.5 tonne Vauxhall Movano used for very small removals and packing services, or for removals where a full-size removal vehicle cannot access.

Next is the 7.5-tonne range for small to medium removals, due to legal weight restrictions any 7.5-tonne vehicle can only carry approx. 3 tones of effects, equivalent to an average 2-bed house / flat contents.

Now we come to the 18-tonne range of vehicles, the most popular choice for all professional removal companies operating in the UK. This is because with a payload in excess of 9 tonnes and a volume of 2250 cubic feet contained in their 40ft length they can carry removals from a single item to all but the largest of moves without worrying about overloading and the consequences that this can bring.

We then have our flagshig, the 40 tonne roadtrain, with a capacity of 3750 cuft and a payload of approximately 25 tonnes, it can take the largest of removals in its stride. It consist of a 26 tonne, 2000 cuft removal truck with matching 14 tonne, 1750 cuft trailer in its considerable 62 foot length. It also has the ability to carry 9 storage containers in one go making the larger storage jobs much more efficient.

LOCAL HOUSE MOVING:

House moving dayLocal removals, although short on distance, still need undertaking with all the care and attention a professional removal company can offer. At Goodwins, all of our staff have been with the company for more that ten years and are all trained to British Association of Removers standards so that you cannot place your furniture in safer hands.

Firstly a removal surveyor will visit your property to complete the pre-move survey. This will allow us to allocate the correct size and weight capacity vehicle, staff, packing materials if needed and to calculate the time needed for the house moving. You will receive a written quotation in the post. If this is acceptable then we will arrange dates and times to commence the move.

Our qualified professional staff will then complete your removal as efficiently as possible, making for a stress-free move.

All of our vehicles are kitted out with a full set of loading ramps (multiple loading positions available) barrows and sack trucks, piano trolleys, ties and straps, removal blankets and portable wardrobes. In addition, each vehicle as standard has a set of strong wrap furniture covers.

National house movings

A National house moving is classed as a removal within the mainland United Kingdom.
A National removal is conducted in exactly the same way as any other removal Goodwins undertakes. We utilise our own full-time staff who are all time served professionals trained to British Association of Removals standards. Due to the weight of modern furniture, we mainly use 18-tonne vehicles for your removal, saving the smaller 7.5 tonners for smaller removals (1-2 bed houses etc) or where access may be restricted. We will undertake the removal to your specifications whether you want to do your own packing or let our professional staff do it for you. All of your furniture will be handled by professionals with all the care and respect that you would expect to ensure that it arrives at your new home exactly as it left the old one.

European House moving:

A European removal can be either from or to the UK from any European Country. We offer the options of full load, door to door service or as a part load. We can also offer a part load service using our British Association partners if we do not have a vehicle schedule that matches your delivery dates, meaning Goodwins can always get your effects delivered on time.
