    A TECHNICAL VISIT OF YOUR HOME

    We will also estimate the volume of items to move and answer all your questions.

  • A DETAILED INVENTORY

    In any event, you will be requested to fill in a detailed inventory and to indicate the value of your possessions and then to return it to us.

    > The study of this inventory will enable us to calculate the volume of furniture that you need to place in storage, as well as the technical material and the number of removal team members required for the move.

    On the inventory you will also be required to mark down details concerning the access to your home (number of floors, access to a lift, possibility for a large removal van to park in your street, ...).

    On the inventory you will also list in as much detail as possible all the items of furniture and personal possessions that need to be moved.

    In addition, this document will be used by our insurance company as the reference document.

  • PREPARATION

  • So that everything goes as smoothly as possible on the day that you move home, it is essential that everything is prepared very thoroughly.

    BOXING AND PACKING

    We provide you with all the cardboard boxes and cello tape that you will need and this material can be collected from your removal company premises.

    Unless it is particularly difficult to access your home, the removal company will arrive at your home with the containers loaded in the removal van. The removal team will fill them directly at your home.

    It is essential that you are present on the day that you move home. If however you are unable to be present, we ask you to choose someone who can replace you on the day of your move. Please let the removal company know about this.

    Your main contact on the day of your move will be with the removal company team manager. It is important that you provide him with all the necessary information and details linked to your move. The team manager will intervene as the specialist and you should let this person deal with everything.

    It will be easier for the team to load the removal van if you can take the team manager on a guided tour of your home before beginning loading so that he can get a general idea of the work to be done. Any existing damage to furniture or items can be made a note of at this time.

    Once everything has been loaded in the removal van, we advise that you take a thorough look around your home with the team manager to make sure that you haven’t forgotten anything. At this stage the removal team will seal and number the packing containers.


    The numbers of the seals will be given to you and will also be noted in your storage contract.
