OUR HANDY MOVING GUIDE
Step 1 – Free survey & quote
At your request, a Dennis’s consultant will visit your home for a free survey and provide you with a quote for your move – all without any obligation. Our friendly and helpful experts will be happy to spend time explaining and advising you on your move, to make it as smooth as possible. You can then make an informed decision and take advantage of Dennis’s comprehensive range of removals services, including:
- inventory and packing
- transportation and storage
- delivery and unpacking
If you’re happy to go ahead with our quote, you’ll be assigned a personal Move Coordinator – your point of contact responsible for coordinating your move, and keeping you up to date at every stage.
Step 2 – Inventory & packing
Before packing, our highly skilled staff will create comprehensive checklists and inventories of all your possessions using state-of-the-art barcoding technology. These lists give us – and you – an instant, easy way to see what needs to be transported or put into storage.
Packing is a skilled process and Dennis’s will take as much care with your possessions as we would our own. Which is why we guarantee they’ll only be handled by full-time Dennis’s staff who’ve all had intensive packing and handling training.
We can do it all for you, or if you prefer we can handle just the china and glass. Dennis’s use and supply a full range of packaging materials to protect every kind of delicate item – from hanging wardrobes to lampshade boxes, flat packs for pictures to tough small boxes for heavy items like books
Dennis’s always wrap your belongings in new white paper and thick 6mm bubblewrap. And if necessary, we’ll use specially made crates to safeguard your possessions in transit.
Step 3 – Transport & storage
Once your possessions have been wrapped and packed, they’ll be placed in containers at your home, securely sealed and then loaded onto our specially designed vehicles – part of the Dennis’s Fleet – for their onward journey.
Delivery totally depends when you need your belongings to arrive at your new home. Your container will either be delivered direct, or transported to one of our superb new storage facilities – for as long as you need.
Once in storage, you can rest assured that all is safe and secure. Dennis’s have invested heavily in the latest transportation and warehousing facilities, meaning we can guarantee the safety and security for all your belongings at every step of your move, with:
- state-of-the-art storage database that tracks all consignments and allows effortless recovery
- 24,000 square feet of warehousing space to make sure all your belongings are kept safe and secure
- all our 700 containers are sealed in a process that makes it impossible for anyone but you to add or remove items
- full insurance cover
Step 4 – Delivery & unpacking
If you’re moving to Europe we guarantee all loads are carried in one of our own vehicles.
That means only members of Dennis’s relocation team come into contact with your belongings.
Our team will deliver and unload your belongings, unpack and even position your furniture. Then we’ll remove all packing materials and debris so you can start enjoying your new home.
