Removal Companies Birmingham
Burke Bros Moving Group provide removals and storage services throughout Birmingham to any part of the UK or indeed internationally. No matter whether your move is within Birmingham, from Birmingham across the UK or from Birmingham to an international location, Burke Bros have four decades of experience of executing all of these moves and can guide you through a smooth and stress-free relocation.
Our services include a free pre-move, no obligation survey, in which one of our surveyors will either visit your premises and perform an in-house survey, or can conduct a virtual survey via video link if you prefer. The survey allows us to accurately assess the volume of effects to be moved and to consider access to the property, as well as giving you the opportunity to ask any questions about the removals process and our services. From this survey, the surveyor will be able to generate an accurate quotation based on the resources needed to execute a professional removal.
We are often asked for approximate prices for moves but remember that generating an accurate quotation involves the removal company giving value for money for the customer but also resourcing the job properly to enable the removal crew to complete the move professionally.
We are able to offer a packing service, should you decide that you’d prefer professional packing, our surveyors can also add this into the quotation. We can either pack fragile items (glass, china, mirrors etc) or the entire household. Professional packers are trained to complete the packing safely and within specified timescales using professional materials. Our removal crews have a considerate and understanding attitude and know that every home is unique and requires unique care.
Alternatively, if you decide to do your own packing, we also advise to invest in proper packing materials; bubble wrap, packing chips and packing paper. It’s not worth cutting corners when it comes to protecting your possessions for moving day. (Most removal companies sell these items and if you need to move specialist items, e.g., valuable paintings, the mover should also be able to supply picture sleeves or make bespoke crates at further cost for extra protection and reassurance.) These items can be purchased from the Burke Bros online packing materials shop or purchased onsite at our offices.
No matter whether you are moving locally, long distance or internationally, we also offer secure storage in Birmingham. Our depot has both containerised storage and self-access storage facilities. Our containerised storage option involves our professionally trained removal crew carefully packing your household effects into storage containers and issuing you with a detailed inventory and then transporting the containers back to our warehouse for safe keeping for long as you require. The containers remain sealed until you issue us with instructions to deliver your effects to your new residence. If you require access to your effects in store during the storage period, prior to the re-delivery, we can arrange for this, but you will need to contact our offices to organise this.
Opting for self access storage will be more appropriate if you require frequent access to your possession during the storage period. Our self storage warehouse is home to 94 rooms available in a range of different sizes, allowing you to rent as much space for as long as you need it.
The storage facilities can of course be used for such purposes as a safe ‘home from home’ for your possessions if you’re renovating your home and need to clear space, or are decluttering to put a house on the market, as well as if you are moving house and need to store items between the sale of your property and the moving date. Some customers also use our Birmingham storage to safely store their effects after flood damage to their property.
Our Birmingham storage is safe and secure with the benefit of 24 hour CCTV cameras, secure perimeter fencing and the use of your own padlock on each of the self-storage rooms. The storage is available long term or short term, and storage insurance is also available. We can often arrange storage for you at short notice- just contact our office and speak to our friendly advisors.
International Removals Birmingham
What to look for in a removals company? If you’re planning a move abroad from Birmingham and are looking for international removal companies Birmingham to perform the move for you, there are a few considerations you’ll need to take into account. It’s important to opt for a removal company that has experience of performing international moves, expertise in dealing with the paperwork and customs requirements and has professionally trained removal crews who are trained in export wrapping. Information of this kind can be obtained during the pre- moving survey, which the surveyor should conduct with you, to obtain the volume of effects that you wish to have shipped and also to explain the logistics of the move. Either asking people you know for recommendations or looking at online review sites like Sirelo will also be a useful way of gauging which companies you want to shortlist based on other people’s experiences of actually moving internationally.
Furthermore, another important factor to consider in the search for an international moving company Birmingham is whether they have the industry accreditations to guarantee that they will be able to provide a professional and quality move. Look for a company who has membership with the British Association of Removers and FIDI (the global alliance of international quality removal companies) as these organisations guarantee that your money and your move are properly protected.
