Removals

As an agency we want to provide an exceptional service and to do this we need to make the whole moving process from end to end as simple as possible. 

All estate agents offer quotes for their reccomended conveyancing, mortgage and surveying services but to our knowledge we are the only estate agent that can also offer you a bespoke quote for removals at the same time as providing a valuation of your home.  

We have partnered with Ballards, a Retford based family business who have been helping people move both locally and around the world for over 40 years.


Moving day is one of the most exciting, but also stressful days of your life! If you are in a chain, getting all of your possessions out of your house by the 2pm deadline can be a mammoth task and if your moving yourself with a van, several trips may be required adding to the stress. 

Ask yourself: Where do you offload the van if you don’t have access to the new house, and need to go back to re-fill or If your not loaded up and out of your home for 2pm where would you place your belongings whilst your buyers start to move there furniture in? 

Either way you could find your possessions out in the street getting or on a garden getting ruined by rain! 

Book removals and let the professionals make your move run like clockwork........ You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how little they cost.

Storage

Whether you’re moving house, renovating or moving out for a short while, there are times when you need furniture storage away from home. 

And whether you’re looking for temporary furniture storage for a week or so, or something longer term, Ballards can help. 

We’ll load and seal your furniture at your home, placing it into large wooden crates or containers. Everything is then inventoried, and transported to our purpose-built, modern warehouse at Markham Moor, next to the A1 near Retford and Newark. 

Our location is very convenient for people in Lincolnshire, Notts and Leicestershire. 

You can rest assured that your furniture will be well cared for and stored safely. No squashed sofas at Ballards! 

We can wrap and store them separately, the right way up, with nothing stacked on top of them. 

We have 24-hour security, CCTV and alarms linked directly to the police and emergency services. 

Our minimum period for furniture and household storage is seven days – there’s no maximum, and you can pay as you go.
