This article will take a closer look at the Schepens furniture removals process. We’ll explain our extensive quoting process and a few of the steps we take to protect your furniture.


The Schepens furniture removals process

European Movers

Schepens has been performing European furniture removals for over a century. Over the years, we have continually refined our removals process. We have developed detailed procedures for packing and handling cargo. Each procedure was created with the primary goal of delivering reliable, efficient, and safe European removals.

Our procedures are all backed by British Association of Removers standards — the leading standard for professional removals in Europe. We use BAR standards to train our removers and move coordinators. That means you will always be dealing with skilled staff members who know what they are talking about! 

Schepens only employs removers with the right combination of personality and work ethic. You will be delighted by their professional demeanour and the speed that they can pack your cargo! We are proud of the handpicked removers that work for us and we are sure you will love them also — they make moving in Europe a real pleasure. Here is a brief overview of our furniture removals process:

Stage 1: Initial client meeting

It all kicks off with an initial meeting between the client and one of our move coordinators. The goal of this meeting is to help us understand the nature of your European removal.

If your removal only involves a few items, this meeting can be carried out over the phone. For larger removals, our move coordinator may have to inspect your furniture personally to assess its condition. Most meetings take between 20 to 30 minutes to perform, but large removals may take slightly longer. The move coordinator will ask a number of questions, including:

  • Where in Europe will your cargo be headed?
  • Are there any access issues which may make delivering your cargo more difficult (narrow staircases or steep driveways)?
  • Do you have any pieces of furniture that are extremely fragile?
  • Do you have any pieces of furniture that are very heavy or cumbersome to move?
  • Do you have any particularly valuable items that require a security guard to be present?
  • Will you be using our professional packing service for your European removal?
  • Would you like to use the Schepens storage service?
  • Would you like to move your cargo in a dedicated or a shared container? A shared container can be more affordable, but delivery times can be slower.
  • Which insurance plan would you like to use for your cargo?

Our move coordinator may require some photos of your furniture or ask to personally inspect them to assess their condition. We always like to ensure we have the necessary preparations in place to keep your furniture safe during the journey.

Stage 2: Quotation

Once your move coordinator has gathered all of the information they require, they will begin creating a highly detailed quote. The time it takes to make this quote may vary depending on the size of your removal, but most quotes are provided within a day or two.

Our quotes are 100% free and 100% obligation free. They clearly outline the cargo being moved, the delivery window, the cargo insurance plan being used, and the total price. Our total price is the final door-to-door price. Unlike certain other European removals companies, we have no hidden extras!

Using the Schepens professional packing service

If you have decided to use our professional packing service, the move coordinator will arrange a time for packing your possessions. For smaller removals, this can be performed on the day of the move. If your removal is larger, it may be performed in the days prior to the move.

When you use this service, our experienced removers will pack all of your possessions for you. This ensures your cargo is safe during your European removal and saves you a lot of time.  When you use our professional packing service we supply all of the packing boxes, packing paper, and packing tape.

Our furniture packing process

We have very rigorous procedures for preparing and packing cargo. These procedures are tried-and-tested. They help to ensure the safety of your cargo during your European removal. Some of the steps we take to protect your furniture include:

  • Fragile furniture is protected with layers of bubble wrap and cardboard
  • Furniture that can be marked easily is covered with thick layers of corrugated cardboard
  • Mirrors and pieces of glass are fully wrapped and protected
  • Some pieces of furniture may be partially disassembled to improve the safety of the removal
  • Upholstered surfaces will be covered in plastic if your furniture is going into storage
  • The entire process is carefully monitored by your move coordinator!

“Hi Janis and Tracey! Thanks for getting my stuff safely delivered to Gothenburg today! My fiancé said that your deliverers were lovely, and I must say the guys that picked the stuff up from London were awesome too. I’m genuinely so nicely surprised to have had such a great service. I was expecting a headache! Regards Joe”
