WHAT IF I HAVE TO MOVE HOUSE NOW?

The UK Government recommends that all house moves be postponed until the lockdown is over. They are asking everyone to work together to find an alternative moving date. However, in some cases, another date is not available and your move may be considered essential, especially if your new home is vacant. In this case, it’s important to maintain the UK Government standard of social distancing and hygiene. Moving with the help of family and friends is not an option. Only people that live in the house can help.

So why not hire a professional moving company, who have social distancing and lockdown procedures already in place?

Moving is still possible and urgent moves can continue, but it’s important to keep your family safe.
