Louise Hurrell

"The crew, Paul, John and Nick all knew us from previous moves with the company. We moved from a street, and John did not know I saw him helping an old lady over the ramp most kindly and gently, holding her hand and chatting to her. We have used Weston & Edwards at least six times; they have also moved house for my mother and my aunt. They are unfailingly professional and go out of their way to make the whole process as easy as possible, come rain or shine. Close contact with the office; nothing ever seems to be too much trouble, a can-do attitude, and prompt and courteous attention throughout the company reflects from head office to crew. Their humour goes a long way too. "



Diana Page

"Now that we have arrived in Minehead I just want to say how pleased we were that we chose W & E to move us. Matt and John were the perfect removal men in every way. They simply got on with the job calmly and quietly yet were very considerate and helpful at all times and knew exactly where they had packed some important paperwork, which I had to retrieve, due to their super efficiency first thing on the second morning! They were particularly kind and considerate and concerned about my husband who has some dementia and who was totally confused by the whole procedure. In fact the whole exercise was almost fun ! Similarly, the lovely Matt once again (thank you) and Ian delivered us out of store very professionally and with efficiency and a sense of humour. Thank you for all your help. I am very grateful and must tell you how impressed I am with your efficiency! You give one confidence in an extremely stressful situation which is very comforting and very important. "



Sally Harding

"The crew were brilliant couldn't believe the speed they emptied our old house and moved everything into our new home. We would definitely recommend Weston & Edwards to anyone needing a removal company. Our verdict, money very well spent for a fantastic service. "



John & Chris Long

"Now that we have settled in and unpacked the boxes I have time to write. My thanks to you and your team for a faultless move - it may have only been half a mile but the effort and efficiency was impressive. For us the work is just starting but we are grateful for the smooth start your team gave us. Yours sincerely, John & Chris Long "



Margaret Cook

"I would like you to express my gratitude and thanks to the crew that removed and packed my furniture from Chatsworth Great Bromley and delivered the same to my new address 19 Oysters Reach Brightlingsea, it was done with great efficiency and I really appreciated that, thank you. "



Moving from the UK to Europe

Because of recent legislation, there are now far fewer restrictions and moving to E.U. countries has never been simpler. It is advisable, however, to consult a removal company who is familiar with all the different laws of different countries, to ensure a smooth and trouble-free move.

Your possessions are precious to you, so you will want a removal company you can trust to transport them safely and efficiently over many miles.

Weston & Edwards have the knowledge & expertise which, when combined with the care, consideration and reliability afforded by a well established family firm, gives you complete peace of mind.

For full loads and most part-loads, we always use our own trucks and our own, fully trained removal men.

Removals by Road / Ferry

This is still the most economical and efficient method for removals to France, Spain, Ireland & most European countries. The countries best served by road are:

Austria, Belgium, Channel Isles*, Czech Rep, Denmark, Eire, France, Germany, Holland, Hungary, Isle of Man, Luxembourg, N Ireland, Northern Italy (Rome and above), Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland*,  UK mainland

*Our staff can clear customs on entry to Switzerland and the Channel Islands.

Moves to Scandinavia & the East Mediterranean  are more economical and efficient by container shipment.

Container Service

Our door to door container service is efficient, safe and economical and ideal for destinations that are harder to reach by conventional road removal trucks - the islands of Cyprus, Malta, Canaries, Madeira, and countries that take a long time to travel to, via ferries etc, like Norway, Sweden, Finland, Greece Bulgaria and Turkey 

A whole household or a few personal possessions?

A full 20ft container will accommodate an average 3 bedroom house, with 40ft containers for larger households.

If you're taking a lesser amount considerable savings are made by sharing the space with our other customers. There are often containers with spare space going to the more common destinations, so you’re able to send any quantity from one box upwards and only pay for the space you need.

Your goods are packed and 'export wrapped', using paper blankets, bubble wrap and cardboard to prevent scratching and scuffing, then loaded into a security sealed, steel, watertight shipping container at your home (or from our warehouse if storage is required in the interim).

A full inventory is taken by our staff, with a copy given to you and, in the case of a part-load, all packages are labelled with your name and destination address.

The container then goes to the nearest container port here in the U.K. and is shipped to the port, or rail terminal, nearest to your destination, then on by road to your new home. Unloading is undertaken by one of our approved associate removers of the country, who will remove and dispose of all the packaging materials.

The container is sealed at your home and remains unopened until delivery at your new address.

Small Loads:

For urgent smaller loads we can supply a dedicated small van and removal men. Handy for if you're unable to wait for a part load.

Part Load / Single Load:

Favourable rates can be given for small loads or individual items whether crated, by shipping container or removal lorry. You only pay for the space you need.

Full Documentation Service:

In many cases, complex documentation is required when moving overseas and this can be quite a daunting prospect. Weston and Edwards can handle all the paperwork and customs clearance for any country.

Packing:

We can collect your goods from your present home, packing all 'smalls' if required. Please refer to our Packing page for details of packing boxes and materials and all services offered.

Storage:

If you are unable to move directly into your new home abroad storage is available in our clean, modern container storage facility.

Full INSURANCE COVER, to protect your goods whilst in transit, is included in the quote.

Top tips when moving house...

1. Get a quotation well in advance. Either complete our quotation form or make an appointment with our removals estimator. Proper planning ensures a smooth and trouble-free move.

2. If you have time, get rid of all your unwanted items and rubbish in advance - it's lovely to move into a new home, without unwanted clutter.

3. Doing your own packing? Anything that will fit into a box should be packed. Other loose items, garden tools for instance, can be taped together. Don't overfill the boxes. It's best to use our cartons as they are tailor-made for the job.

4. Items can be left in drawers if they're not too heavy, and if the drawers are removable (Our chaps can take the drawers out, put the carcass in the truck and replace the drawers to cut down the amount of packing that you have to do)

5. Freezers can usually stay full. Perhaps put the food in bags/baskets, so that if we struggle, we can take the food out prior to loading, and put back in for transit. We are often able to plug in the freezer on an overnight move.

6. Keep all keys (filing cabinets, safe, wardrobes) together in a safe place.

7. Self-assembly furniture is best dismantled before moving.

8. Prepare a survival pack for the things you will need on moving day - toys, kettle, passports and for the first day in your new home ie: bedding. Keep this separately and make sure the removal men know.

9. Let your mover know beforehand if you haven't managed to get your packing done, got rid of stuff or anything else you haven't asked for in your removal quote. That gives us time to make the necessary arrangements.

10. Make sure your removal company is aware of any access difficulties at either property.

11. People to notify of your change of address: Doctors, dentists, banks, Gas, Electricity, Royal Mail, phone company, D.V.L.A (Driving licence), Friends and relatives!

12. Check that we are available before you commit to a moving date.
