This blog post will take a closer look at the Schepens furniture removal process and explain why we are the best choice for furniture removals to Lyon.
Furniture Removals to Lyon — Our Process
Schepens is one of the most experienced international removals companies in the world. We are committed to providing customers with the most reliable, secure, and safe removals service available. That is why we constantly improve our furniture removals process to give customers the best possible outcome.
All removals are performed by skilled professionals who have been trained to British Association of Removers standards (BAR). These standards have specific rules on the quality of packing materials used and the contingency plans that must be in place when hauling cargo. You can rest assured, knowing that highly-trained removers are taking care of your valuable possessions.
All aspects of our furniture removals to Lyon are insured, including removal trucks and our employees. Clients are offered a wide range of cargo insurance to choose from, which cater to all budgets and cargo itineraries.
The Schepens quotation process
The removals process starts with an initial meeting and quotation. If you only have a small amount of cargo, this meeting may be carried out over the phone or via email. For clients who have large homes or businesses with a lot of furniture, an in-person meeting may be required. This will give our move coordinators a chance to inspect your furniture and give you a very accurate quote.
Schepens likes to provide each client with a dedicated move coordinator. This means you will deal with the same person throughout the removals process, which helps to keep the lines of communication crystal clear. Whenever you require advice or want to ask a question, you can contact your move coordinator directly.
During the initial meeting, your move coordinator will ask you some questions about your cargo, including:
- What are the departure and destination locations for the cargo?
- What is your preferred departure date and arrival window?
- Are there any access issues at the departure or destination locations like narrow hallways or staircases?
- How many pieces of furniture are being moved?
- Do you have particularly valuable items that require additional security?
- Do you have any preference about how the cargo is moved (land, air, sea)?
- Is any of the furniture very heavy, large or fragile?
- Would you prefer to have a dedicated container or a shared container?
- Would you like to use the our professional packing service?
- Would you like to temporarily store your cargo with Schepens?
The consultation process is generally very quick and will often performed in less than 20 minutes.
Once your move coordinator has gathered the information they require, they will create a detailed quote. The quote will contain all of the information you need to understand what Schepens is offering — the departure date, delivery schedule, additional services included, the insurance plan used, and the total price. Our prices represent the total door-to-door cost for the removal. There are no hidden extras! Even though our removal quotes contain a lot of information, they are easy-to-understand.
Thank you to you, and everyone involved in our move, making it run as smoothly as it did, and especially the guys, who worked like Trojans to get us loaded and unloaded at this end, they still had a sense of humour even getting the last item from the truck. Please pass on our thanks to the boys, they were a pleasure to have around at such a stressful time. Kind regards Paula, Tony and Rhian

Our furniture packing process
Over the years, we have developed very strict procedures for packing furniture. These procedures are guided by the standards set out by the British Association of Removers.
Our team uses proven-techniques to wrap delicate items like glassware, bottles of wine and ceramics. These items are carefully placed in 200-grade packing boxes for the journey to Lyon. When it comes to furniture, the following steps are taken:
- Some furniture may be disassembled for the journey to Lyon.
- Some particularly delicate objects may be detached from your furniture if we are concerned about their durability. This may include porcelain or glass handles on cupboards.
- We use layers of plastic and corrugated cardboard on fragile surfaces like soft timbers and glass
- Glass table tops and mirrors are covered with thick payers of bubble wrap and plastic. The edges of mirrors are covered with cardboard to reduce the risk of chips.
- Upholstered items may be covered in plastic to reduce exposure to dust or moisture
Your move coordinator will manage the entire process to ensure it is carried out correctly. They will also manage how the items are loaded into the removals truck.
