  • Furniture Dismantling - Another common removal company service is furniture dismantling and assembling. Ideal for items like beds and tables, it helps to utilise space in the van to fit more items in.
  • Storage - Moving house storage can help if you're in between homes during your move. You can place your items in storage and collect them when you’re ready as storage facilities are flexible.

How Much Will Packers and Movers Cost?

The average cost of movers and packers is £1,181 for a 3-bed house travelling 50 miles in the UK. This includes professional packing services and materials (£250), as well as the dismantling and reassembling of furniture at your new home (£125).

Your storage costs will be an additional £23.94 per square foot on average. Your storage and removal costs will vary and depend on where in the UK you are, how far you’re moving and the items and services you require.
