We offer a wide range of removal services, ranging from your everyday household move across town to being shipped across the world. We have a wide range of equipment at our disposal, from webs and blankets for furniture to ramps and straps for machinery and vehicles. We have a range of lorries to suit each job ranging from our small box van for getting under arches and trees, to our larger lorries and trailers for those larger moves. Each vehicle is fitted out with our equipment so we can ensure your possessions are cared for and secure.
We understand that moving can be stressful time for customers, we therefore provide a friendly and relaxing service. All your personal possessions will be well cared for through all the stages of the move, from packing the boxes and loading the lorry to driving and delivering to the new destination. We do offer a packing service to all our customers to help relieve some of the pressure.
When moving abroad we offer services covering France, Belgium, Holland and the rest of Europe. There are many things to be taken into account such as organising outbound and return ferry sailing schedules and times.
When planning our trips we carefully work out our route taking into account toll roads and the laws and regulations in certain countries. Our lorries and trailers are fully equipped and maintained to make these long trips. We take into account that when using a ferry there because we pack the lorries with great care so your items will be delivered in the same condition as we collected them in.
No Destination is too far for our company to deliver. We are able to deliver all around the world, from Africa to Australia and USA to New Zealand, and we offer competitive rates.
There are many options when being shipped, we can arrange for a container to be left at your property or if you do not have the room we can have it delivered to our warehouse. We take care of all the wrapping, packing and loading therefore taking the stress away from you.
There are two ways of shipping.
Containers range in size from 20ft to 40ft and are for large household moves depending on the size of your property. Once the container is loaded it is then sealed with a unique seal number (which will be checked at both docks), it will then be sent to the docks to be loaded on the next available vessel and shipped to residence.
With groupage, if you do not have enough items to fill a container, you can combine your items with another customer and the cost will be split accordingly. Each shipment will be labelled individually so there can be no error.
Antiques and Fine Art
O&H Removals will take the utmost care of your most valuable antiques and fine art, ensuring they arrive at their new home in pristine condition. We have fully trained staff who are used to handling all types of antiques, from across town to across the world.
All of your goods will be stored in containers in a fully alarmed warehouse which is purposely built for the storage of furniture. The procedure of storing your goods with us is that we arrive at your property with our containers on the lorry, we then wrap your furniture with our blankets to ensure your furniture comes out of storage the same way you last saw it. Whilst we are loading your furniture into the containers we make a detailed inventory which you will have a copy of so you are able to decide which containers you will like first when you have them back out.
Once the containers are full we seal them and drive back to our warehouse where we then unload them with our forklift and stack them in rows. The containers remain sealed until you require them to be delivered to your new property.
Some customers may have items of furniture that are too large to fit into our containers such as ladders or carpets. We have special racks to accommodate items such as these and they will be wrapped and labelled accordingly.
Packing is a crucial part of any move. Our experienced, fully trained staff can take care of some or all of the packing for your move. We can pack everything for you from your precious glass and china to your garden tools. Should you opt for the Full Packing Service we will typically send a team of packers to your home prior to your move and they will pack all belongings and prepare all items for your move.
When packing clothes we suggest leaving the drawers full as it saves time for you and there will be fewer items to pack and unpack. With your hanging clothes we have rails which the removal men bring with them on the day. Every box is clearly labelled letting you know the contents and where it came from. When packing the boxes we use our own special white paper that we use to wrap your belongings. We can also order in special acid free paper for the more delicate items such as silver.
For paintings and mirrors we often use a combination of paper blankets and fabric blankets to ensure they are not damaged in anyway. We are also available to dismantle and reassemble wardrobes, we would just require notification when booking your removal.
We offer quality packing materials at great rates. We have two sizes of boxes that are both double walled and very strong. The smaller of the two is best suited for protecting you glass and china and also used to pack heavy, small items such as books, records, tins, bottles, cutlery, heavy food items and heavy ornaments. Larger boxes should be used for lighter items such as clothing, light linen, shoes, bedding, toys, board games etc. You may also pack pots and pans in these cartons.
Along with boxes we also sell white packing paper, bubble-wrap, brown packing tape and various sizes of mattress covers along with sofa and chair covers.
We can offer all aspects of House Clearance and General Waste Clearance, we can also clear garages, sheds, outbuildings, garden waste and pretty much anything else. We can collect items and take them to the local salerooms and if necessary dispose of any items not required.
We moved two weeks ago from London to the South West and we chose O&H as we felt a local firm would know the small lane around the area! We had two men come out to pack, later helped by another man - friendly, professional and very careful with all out things. They were all really nice guys, helpful and patient with our occasional "on no it should go to that room instead" and very aware of how stressful a move can be. To see them navigating big pieces of furniture down steps and up stairs with just inches of clearance was quite scary at times, but there were very professional (as well as amazingly strong) and everything went in, nothing broken, nothing damaged. An excellent job and we were really grateful! If we ever move again (perish the thought) we know where to go for the removal!
Thank you for providing an excellent removal service. Congratulations on having such competent staff, cheerful and so helpful, nothing was too much trouble. I felt their efforts were way above what any client would hope for. I was recommended to you and shall certainly pass on my satisfaction to others in need of your good services.
Thank you for making our move to Axminster this week so easy. The crew were absolutely brilliant. They were cheerful, polite, careful, helpful and efficient. You couldn't wish for a better service, many thanks.
Following our recent house move, I am writing to thank you for the excellent way that your company managed our removal last month. Over the two days that the move took place, all of the staff involved were polite, courteous and more than willing to do what ever was required of them. Thank you to all of you for making the process as painless as moving house can be. I would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone I know.
I just wanted to thank you all once again for making my parents' house move as smooth as it could have possibly been. Little did we know when moving in January of this year that we would be seeing you all again so soon! It was a great weight off our minds to know that you would once again be on hand to handle everything with sensitivity and care and with such efficiency. Del and his team were once again fantastic, no job too big or small, and always done with a smile and a laugh. It really does make a very stressful couple of days so much easier to have such a great team on site.
A big thank you to the team who moved us. Nothing was too much trouble, it made everything so easy for us. Not planning another move soon but if we were, it would be O&H!
