Moving house in London? We can help.

Moving home is the start of a new adventure. We specialise in planning house removals in London and our job is to keep things simple for you.

Before the move, we’ll carry out a video survey – free of charge – to discuss all your requirements and get a detailed, fixed-price quote to you the same or the next day. There’s no obligation and your home removals quote is valid for 30 days, so you can take your time to decide.

House removals in London – We keep it simple

Ahead of your moving day, we’ll deliver hire crates and boxes to your door, so you can get everything packed. Or, if you prefer, you can use our personal packing service. You don’t even need to be at home because if you are busy, overseas or away during the planning and moving process, we are more than happy to take care of everything on your behalf.

Our home removals team includes an experienced foreman, who’ll be working from your detailed itinerary and floor plans and, of course, we’ll carefully label all your boxes so everything ends up in the right place.

Before we leave

Your foreman will make a final inspection to ensure everything has gone as planned. We can reposition heavy items and take away as much packaging as possible.

Frequently asked questions about our London house removal services

How much does a removal in London cost?

The price of a house removal in London will depend on a variety of factors. The greater the number of bedrooms in your house the more your house move is likely to cost. The distance between the old properly and the new one will also be a factor as will the inclusion of any additional services. If you require a full packing service or the removal of any special items such as a piano then this would also affect the price.

How do I choose a reliable moving company?

When moving house we recommend searching for your removal service on the British Association of Removers website. To ensure a stress-free move always check the accreditations a removal company holds. Reliable and reputable movers will have passed many checks and audits. Alexanders has won many awards and holds numerous accreditations and is the national ‘Domestic Mover the Year’. The quality of relocation service is renowned. We always recommend potential clients take a look at our many 5* Trustpilot reviews.

Will my house moving quote be free no obligation?

Yes. Reputable moving companies will not charge you for a quote. We provide free no obligation quotes within one working day of carrying out a house removals survey.

Will the moving survey be in person or via video?

Due to the pandemic we are now conducting nearly all of our surveys by video directly from our office. This not only offers added protection for both clients and staff but we have found it to be just as efficient. You can learn more about video surveys here. Our team will be happy to arrange a video call with one of senior surveyors so we can look around your property and provide you with an accurate fixed price quote. Please get in touch on 0333 800 2323.

Can I get a ballpark quote for my home removal?

Not from us. At Alexanders we don’t provide ball-park moving quotes without having either carried out a survey of your property, either in person or via video. We have found that there are to many variable factors and it better for our clients to receive a fixed price quote following a survey. Many movers in London will provide unrealistic quotes which are inflated at the end of the move with extras that were not mentioned at the outset. After your survey our move managers back in the office will draw up a bespoke quote for you.

How do I compare house removals quotes between moving companies?

When moving house it can be difficult to compare quotes between moving companies to get a like-for-like comparison. It’s important to make sure moving companies are quoting for the same volume of goods, are carrying the move out over an equal number of days and also the same days. We always suggest checking whether there are additional costs for dismantling or assembling furniture and whether there will be any charges for parking at your house. At Alexanders we ensure there are ‘no hidden extras’ with our quotes and prices are totally transparent for our clients. The quality of service provided by moving companies varies greatly and choosing the cheapest option with removals is never recommended. Consideration should be given to the overall quality of the relocation service. Whilst choosing the cheapest option could save you money in the short term there could be some nasty surprises during the move or when the final invoice arrives.

How much notice does a removal company need?

You should give your professional removal company as much notice as possible when moving house as you may find the dates you want are unavailable, particularly during busy periods. We would advise giving at least two weeks notice. If you would like to confirm your move and make payment then please call us on 0333 800 2323.

Can I reserve dates for my home removal?

Unfortunately we cannot reserve dates for your home removal until we have received a signed acceptance from you. At this point your moving services will be confirmed and the dates locked in. We appreciate there is a lot to organise when moving house but we suggest prioritising the booking of your removals services.

Do home movers offer packing services?

Yes. Most home moving companies will offer a full packing service at an additional cost. If you are looking for a totally stress-free move then we recommend leaving packing and unpacking to your professional removals firm. Alexanders offers a full packing and moving service. If you wish to do your own packing

Do removal companies provide packing materials for house removals?

Yes. However there will be charges associated with providing them. At Alexanders all our packing materials are recyclable and eco-friendly. We also plant a tree on behalf of our clients for every move booked to offset the energy used for the move.

Do home movers dismantle furniture and reassemble?

Yes. Your moving company will be able to dismantle furniture and reassemble it for you at your new house if required. There may be extra charges involved with this service.

Do removal companies offer removals and storage?

Yes. The majority of professional movers offer removals and storage services. There is considerable benefit in choosing a removal company who offer both and provide a complete end-to-end service rather than using a 3rd party storage company. At Alexanders we provide a wide variety of storage services depending on the length of time you require your storage and also the access you require. If you don’t need frequent access we usually recommend container storage which can be more economical than self storage which provides the ultimate flexibility.

Does your service operate across the whole of London?

Yes. We operate throughout the majority of London and surrounding areas. We can service moves in North London, West London, East London and South London. For a full range of postcodes we operate in please visit our Areas We Cover page.

Do you have a fleet of different sized vehicles?

Alexanders have a large fleet of reliable vehicles available for your home move including 18-tonne lorry, 12-tonne lorry and numerous Luton vans. We always select the right vehicles for your move.

House Removals. What happens on moving day?

The moving process will be explained carefully to you by your personal move manager who will guide you through every step carefully. Your professional movers will arrive at your property at the designated time, usually the morning and will work through the bespoke plan we have drawn up. We ensure moving home is stress-free and our crews are professional and efficient on every job. Sit back and let us take care of your relocation.

Will my house move be fully insured?

When you book your move you will have the option to select additional extras of which insurance is one. We always recommend that our clients take the optional insurance for added peace of mind. Whilst our team will take maximum care of your belongings while in transit, accidents can happen so having your move fully insured will guarantee that any issues can be resolved quickly and efficiently. If you aren’t sure whether your move is insured then call us on 0333 800 2323 and we will be happy to discuss options.
