Emergency / Last-Minute Removals Services in Surrey

When you start planning a relocation, the suggested advice is you’ll need to prepare at least one or several months’ in advance for things to run smoothly. This gives you time to plan, declutter, solve any issues with your current property and organise everything without it becoming too chaotic. However, moving to a new home doesn’t always go according to plan, especially if an emergency situation happens.

This is where you’ll need to enlist the help of a professional removals company who can go through the preparation stage with you. At WH Cox & Son, we understand how last-minute situations can occur. We always maintain our high standards for every relocation we undertake, which includes emergency jobs.

Things Don’t Always Go to Plan When Relocating –

There’s no way of sugar-coating it; relocating is an incredibly stressful time, even for smaller moves. Each in our own way, we all lead busy lives with lots of things to balance at home and work. Unfortunately, very few of us has the luxury of taking time off to concentrate on the actual move. And many will have to handle the responsibility for everything by themselves.

Things become more chaotic if you have to move straight away because this is usually due to external events. We can’t plan for something that appears out of nowhere and leaves us scrambling for a solution. Finding a suitable removal’s company is difficult if you have specific needs, and many providers will be fully booked. It’s also probable their vehicle range is limited, giving you fewer removals package options.

Luckily, WH Cox & Son has a range of vehicles and packages for you to choose from. We will do everything possible to accommodate emergency relocations, which includes discussing the preparation with you. We’ll walk you through the process and assess your requirements in full, just like we do for every job. Our team can work fast, but we never cut corners.

Our assessment process is just as thorough for last-minute relocations because matching the right service for every customer is essential. We’ll get everything in place to make your relocation as stress-free as possible.

How to Book a Last-Minute Removals Service –

The first thing to remember is to try and remain relatively calm, even if everything seems to be falling apart around you. Contact the WH Cox team, and we’ll work out when you need to be out of your current property. Then, we’ll assess your situation and suggest a removals package we think fits your requirements. Additionally, we’ll provide you with a free quotation.

In addition to booking your removal service, we can offer smart advice on other things which might help you. We’ve been moving people and businesses in Surrey for many years now, and we’ve undertaken a plethora of different relocations. This gives us a lot of insight and experience, which we often apply for emergency scenarios.

You might need to reduce the volume of your possessions before you move. No problem, we’ll advise how you can do a speedy decluttering. Maybe you’re struggling to organise everything and keep focussed. Our staff will go through the benefits of a moving checklist and can help you create one. We’re also on-hand to provide you with storage tips and packing advice, should you need it.

Turning Several Months Planning into One Week –

When we advise people preparing for a regular relocation, the typical timeframe is to give yourself roughly one or two months. This will provide you with enough breathing space to organise everything and sort out any small issues. Everything changes when things need immediate solutions and emergencies require faster action. But it won’t change how we operate, and we can expedite our removal’s process without lowering our high standards.

Here are a few things you’ll need to do as soon as possible. Get in touch with all the utility companies and council to inform them you’re leaving your current property. Repeat this for your doctor, bank, and other service providers, to prevent any confidential mail arriving after you leave. Don’t forget to take meter readings and send them to your gas and electricity providers.

Leave out enough clothing to last the remaining days and pack rest now. You should repeat this for your kitchenware and toiletries. Depending on availability, we can assist by adding our Packing service to your relocation. It’s advisable to buy sturdy cardboard or plastic containers, rather than getting second-hand boxes from the local shop. They break easily and might damage your belongings.

You’ll need to defrost your fridge-freezer and secure the washing machine’s drum before they’re loaded. Wherever possible, pack everything and only keep essential items out. And also set aside anything fragile or valuable, as you’ll pack these into the removal’s van last. If you’re still trying to secure accommodation, contact several estate agents and do some additional research on where you’re moving to.

Using Self Storage in Emergency Situations –

Most emergency relocations have other problems that happen as a consequence, and we regularly work with people who have storage issues. You might need temporary accommodation while you find a long-term plan, but there’s not enough room for all your things. In a lot of these situations, it’s also too late to try and sell or get rid of things, and it’s a headache you don’t need on top of everything else.

Have no fear – WH Cox & Son has a range of storage options to cover all bases and keep your possessions safe and secure. We have self storage and container units, which are ideal for short and long-term storage requirements. Our facilities also have various storage unit sizes available, and we can upgrade or downsize you if your circumstances change.

Storage is the best way to safeguard your belongings while you deal with the more pressing issues. Our depot has top-notch security measures, with complete CCTV coverage. Moreover, our prices are the most affordable on the market, starting from £14 per week. We can also help you pack everything and transport them to your storage unit.

The Benefits of Booking a Reliable Removals Company –

Moving to a new house or apartment is not easy. There is a lot to remember, and without a plan, it’s easy to lose focus and forget an important task. That’s why we always suggest creating a moving checklist and booking your relocation as soon as possible. And lead with this general rule: if you can do it today, don’t put it off until tomorrow.

Finding a reliable removals company is much easier than it was many years ago. Now you can research any company with a website on Google. Previous customers rate their service out of five, and many of them leave written comments. This might be an invaluable tool that places more power with the consumer. And you’ll see why we’re big fans of this function by reading some of our reviews here.

You’re already in a tricky situation by having to relocate quickly, so it’s crucial you book with a reputable removals provider. At WH Cox & Son, we can walk you through every stage and put you at ease. Wherever possible, we’ll try and unburden you, freeing your time up to tackle any other issues that come with last-minute relocations.
