Moving Company in Bournemouth

Whatever the time of year, the size of your family, or nature of your relocation, moving from one house to another will always be a stressful experience. For over one hundred years, generations of the Schepens family-run removals company in Bournemouth have been helping to ease the anxieties and stresses of moving-day by providing a friendly, efficient, and thoroughly professional service to families and businesses.

We’ve dealt with numerous, and often daunting, challenges over the years but our decades of experience have made us experts when it comes to solving tricky problems, and we’re proud to say that we will always find a solution and we never consider a job complete until our clients fully ensconced in their new home or business premises.

As a moving company in Bournemouth we get to see a side of this beautiful city which is largely invisible to the tourists and holiday-makers. We know the narrow streets that make property access difficult; we recall the apartment buildings with lifts too small to take furniture, and we’ve moved grand pianos and precious heirlooms into houses across the length and breadth of the city. People moving to Bournemouth appreciate our local knowledge, whilst long-standing residents of the city trust us because of the professional knowledge and attention to detail we bring to our work. As a family, we’ve lived and breathed the removals business over the decades, which means we care about the work we do, and the people we provide our services to.

A Thoroughly Professional Moving Company in Bournemouth

We think it’s important to demonstrate our professionalism through the materials we use, the staff we employ and the removal lorries we use to transport our clients’ home contents:

Schepens, Moving company in Bournemouth – Our Vehicles – in order to ensure smooth and efficient removals to Bournemouth, our state-of-the art removal lorries provide a clean, stable and maintained environment for household or office goods and furniture throughout the journey from one location to another.

Schepens, Moving company in Bournemouth – Our People – all our staff are trained to BAR standards, which means that they are required to meet strict service criteria, and to demonstrate their understanding of that criteria in regular inspections. Our staff are uniformed and understand the importance of providing expert assistance, efficient packing and loading, and a friendly demeanour throughout the removals process.

Schepens, Moving company in Bournemouth – Our Materials – if we are asked to pack household goods for removal, we use 200 grade boxes to ensure secure packaging even when boxes are stacked inside the removals lorry. Our boxes are so strong that once they are assembled and taped you can stand on them without causing buckling or sagging.

“I would just like to confirm how pleased we both were with the way Dalton, Jim and Rich carried out our move from Bournemouth to Shropshire. They were a credit to your company. Thank you very much for your excellent service.”

A Moving Company in Bournemouth That Understands the Importance of Professional Packing

removal lorry moving company in bournemouthIncreasingly of our clients are asking us to manage the packing of their household goods in preparation for removal. It is certainly possible to undertake this task yourself but it’s time-consuming and requires careful preparation and the right materials if your goods are to arrive safely at their new location. Schepens staff are trained to pack efficiently, and fast, which means that removals to Bournemouth are professionally handled – taking one more stress out of the removals process.

We believe that professional packing is dependent on an understanding of the removals process and – as always – a careful attention to detail. Our staff know that every object they touch is precious to its owners and – as such – each item is treated with the utmost respect.

Packing Glassware – our sturdy boxes are prepared with a layer of cushioning at the base of the box. Each item of glassware is individually wrapped and heavy objects are packed first. Gaps between items are carefully filled to ensure that items are held securely in transit, and the top of the box is cushioned to protect the upper layer.

Packing Household China – we use cushioning at the base and top of the boxes we use to pack china items, and the sturdier items are packed at the base of the box. Each item is wrapped and packed individually, and great care is taken to minimise potential movement once the box is placed on the vehicle.

Packing Books, Records, and Magazines -whilst these appear to be easier items to pack, we always take care that spines, or book covers, are not bent during packing. We never over-pack boxes by jamming items into every available space and we aim to deliver every item in the condition in which we found it.

Packing Liquids, Wines, and Spirits – a leaking bottle of oil can cause a good deal of damage even if the amounts are quite small. Schepens staff always use boxes with dividers which allow for bottles to be stood upright, and wrapped for further protection. Movement of the bottles is restricted through the use of paper wadding.

Smart Use of Space – our staff understand the art of packing and make maximum use of the space afforded by packing boxes, without over-filling or straining the edges of the boxes.

Taping and Labelling – key to a successful move is the efficient taping and labelling. One major source of anxiety for movers is having a new house full of boxes and no idea which one contains the mugs and kitchen supplies! We relieve this particular stress by writing clear descriptive labels for each box as soon as it is taped.
