Thinking of moving? Put your trust in Shore Porters today.

No matter how positive you feel about moving house, uprooting from your home and starting afresh can be one of life’s most stressful activities.

Shore Porters understands how important it is to get things right on the day so that your treasured possessions arrive safely and securely, in the right place, at the right time, with the minimum of fuss. After all, we’ve been moving families and individuals the length and breadth of the UK – not to mention overseas – for more than five centuries.

No matter how large or small it may be, each domestic removal is treated with the same level of individual care and attention. Your valuables will be packed and moved by the same experienced professionals who will be with you every step of the way.

As you would expect, we work to internationally-recognised standards, including  BAR and FIDI AND ISO 9001– but we aim to exceed your expectations with the extra care and attention to detail that single us out as the removals company of choice for home owners, companies and fine art collectors across the globe.

Where to start

As soon as you know you will be moving house, please contact us to arrange a free, no-obligations pre-move survey. Alternatively, you can complete the online form and receive a removal quote by email.

It’s important to contact us where possible four weeks in advance of your move, so that if you decide to choose Shore Porters, we can give you, and your domestic removal, the full attention it deserves.

Pre-move survey

Our representative will visit your home to assess your requirements by finding out:

  • Where you are moving from and to?
  • What level of service does your domestic removal require?
  • If you are doing the packing yourself, do you require boxes?
  • Do you have any items that require specialist packing?
  • What is the easiest means of access to your house?
  • Is storage required for a time?

Our representative will be delighted to talk you through the various options, answer your questions and provide professional advice on the most efficient way of handling your move.

Following the pre-move survey, a cost estimate, tailored to your requirements, will be sent to you without delay by email, post or fax. If you have any queries following receipt of this quote, or if you would like us to proceed, please contact us as soon as you can.

Remember, Shore Porters can also help if you want to move a single item of furniture or fine art. We have a dedicated Part Load service for transporting such items within the UK.
