Our furniture removals to Bordeaux

The Schepens quotation process

The first stage of our removals process involves a meeting with one of our move coordinators. If your removal only involves a small number of items, this meeting may be carried out over the phone or online. If you have a large home or business to move, one of our staff members will visit your home. 

During the meeting, the move coordinator will explain how the removals process works. They will also ask you some questions to give us a better understanding of your requirements. Those questions will typically include:

  • Where will the cargo be picked up from and where is the destination?
  • Do you have a preferred pickup date and delivery window?
  • Are there any access issues at either location which could make the removal more difficult?
  • Are any of the items particularly large, heavy or fragile?
  • Are any items extremely valuable and require additional security measures?
  • Do you have any preference about how the cargo is transported (land, air, sea)?
  • Would you like to use the Schepens professional packing service?
  • Would you prefer to have a dedicated container or a shared container?
  • Would you like to store any of your cargo with Schepens?

Depending on the amount of cargo you have, a consultation can take anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes. Once the move coordinator has gathered the information they require, they will prepare a quote for our services. Our quotes are highly detailed, but easy to understand. They contain information about the delivery schedule, the items being moved, the insurance plan, additional services you have purchased, and the total cost. The total cost listed on the quote is representative of the final cost — there are no unexpected expenses!  Our quotes are 100% free and completely obligation-free.

We use a very strict procedure for preparing and loading furniture into our removal trucks. This helps to ensure that your furniture will safely make it to Bordeaux. Our procedures are based upon the standards set out by the British Association of Removers

We have developed techniques to wrap delicate items quickly and efficiently. Your glassware, bottles of wine and ceramics will be well protected for the journey. When it comes to furniture, the following steps are taken:

  • Beds and other pieces of furniture may be disassembled
  • Layers of plastic and cardboard are taped onto fragile surfaces like soft timbers and glass.
  • Mirrors are covered with thick layers of bubble wrap and plastic sheeting. The edges of mirrors are covered with cardboard to reduce the risk of breakage.
  • Upholstered items may be covered in plastic to reduce their exposure to dust or moisture

This process will be overseen by your move coordinator. They will ensure your furniture is correctly prepared and loaded into the removals vehicle in the right order.

A week on from our furniture delivery here in France we have finished unpacking! Everything arrived with no breakages or mishaps. Please pass on our special thanks to Baz and Perry who were simply superb. Kind regards Kit – Chandlers ford, Southampton, to the south of France
