Yes, depending on how busy we are. Yes, our removal services can be booked for every day of the week, at any time. We are working on bank holidays too. Have in mind, that there is an extra fee for working overnight (after 19:00).
Do you offer Storage?

Can you do overseas moves?
Yes, we do! We can help you move to any country in the European Union. You can check out our European Removals page for additional information.
Can you send just one man and I will help?
We can but we avoid it as it is not safe, only for rare cases with really small items we can make an exception.
What size of van will I need? How many men will I need to do my moving?
The size of the van you need depends on what you need to be moved. When booking a removal you will be asked for some details about the items you need to be relocated. Based on that information – we, the removal company send the most appropriate van, so all of your belongings fit in it. For bigger moves (3+ bedrooms) – a removals survey is carried, so it could be calculated what you will need. Depending on your needs and the quantity of the items you need to relocate and your schedule/needs, the removals crew could be up to three men. Our man and van team will provide you with a sufficient number of movers based on the job.
When can we contact to book a service?
Our Lines are open 24/7, so you are free to contact us virtually at any time.
What is the latest we can start?
We are flexible on that – but for late working time, extra fee applies (after 7 pm).

We accept credit card payments. For Corporate clients or Agencies, we can offer Bank transfer as well. You pay upon booking or some time before the service begins.

Do you dismantle the furniture and put them back up?

Our Insurance is a package for the whole move, there is no restriction for single items. Yes, our removal service is fully insured for all of your stuff!
