A video survey is a very convenient way to get a removal quotation. It's quick, highly accurate and most customers receive a quotation on the same day. During the survey we will ask you a few questions about the services you require such as if you would like us to do the packing and if you have any valuable or sentimental items that need special packing. Images of special items can be captured during the survey, which helps the packing crews understand your requirements. As you walk around each of the rooms our surveyor will use our inventory system, which automatically calculate the volume as each item is entered. After the survey we can discuss a timetable with you.
To arrange a survey please contact the appropriate depot to arrange a convenient day and time for the survey.
