When choosing between different removals and storage companies, it's important to find a firm which will tailor its service to your requirements. We provide a free survey for planning your furniture removals in the UK or abroad - our specialist surveyors will go through with you which belongings you want to be moved or placed into storage. As well as our home moving service, we are experts in business removals and storage.
We then provide you with a detailed quote for you to examine and our consultants are on hand to answer any particular issues arising. If any particular UK or overseas removals quote does not quite meet your needs our team will endeavour to help you achieve the quote you require.
Packing and Loading
Critically important aspects of the service offered by removal and storage companies are the standard of packing and handling techniques as well as the quality of the packing materials used. The packing crews used for our home and commercial removals in the UK and abroad work for Dolphin full-time and are highly experienced and trained in the latest techniques.
Where packing is required as part of our overseas moving service, we begin preparations before the moving day, using purpose-made packaging designed to protect items during the move. We use a variety of packing materials including acid-free tissue paper, bubble wrap, waterproofed padded blanket furniture wrap a wide range of reinforced boxes, Jiffy foam and extra strong sealing tape. We use smaller boxes for heavier items and larger boxes for lighter items. For fine art, antiques or other delicate items such as grandfather clocks, glass cabinets or paintings we take extra care, ensuring they are given additional protection including the design and building of bespoke crates or cases where necessary.
For business removals we understand the need for office files, papers and desk contents to be moved in an orderly manner, to enable people to get up and running quickly after unpacking – here we will use sturdy plastic tea crates to enable paperwork to be kept together.
Delivery & Unloading
For UK moves we will deliver to your chosen destination on the date agreed. For overseas removals our agents will contact you when your consignment arrives, to agree a convenient time for delivery. Upon arrival at your home or office we will unload and unpack, placing all items as you require into specific rooms and locations, before finally removing all packaging from the premises.
Short or Long Term Storage
As experts in business removals and storage, Dolphin Movers can offer safe, secure storage facilities for your office equipment, records and files, for the short or long-term. We offer a service to individuals and companies, both of the same high standard, with archive storage services as an extra service for businesses. If you are moving overseas, we use our own storage facilities to keep your goods safe. We can also provide separate storage as well as offering this service as part of a larger removals service. Perishable or hazardous items cannot be stored.
