Schepens Provides Removals to Wimborne, Bournemouth
If you’ve fallen in love with the Dorset landscape, but you want to be close to the services a city can offer, Wimborne Minster is the ideal location. It sits just 10 miles north of Bournemouth where the rivers Stour and Allen become one.
Wimborne’s a traditional market town, largely untouched by the 21st century, with a glorious muddle of 16th, 17th and 18th century houses dominating the central market square. What makes the town special, though, is the local community ensuring there’s always plenty going on…
Wimborne Model Town
This is a model version of the town as it was in the 1950s. It’s built to a 1:50 scale and shows the town’s shops and public buildings as they were then. It’s a fascinating glimpse into the past, and allows contemporary visitors to see how much has changed in the intervening years.
Built in 1936, the art deco Tivoli Theatre originally screened films and presented live shows. Now it’s an independent cinema which makes a feature of its small auditorium (just 500 seats), and the gorgeous vintage features and architecture.
This happens annually, over a weekend in June. The town becomes a hub for music, dance, and family entertainment. And don’t underestimate Wimborne’s ambition. There are over 35 venues, and 500 events packed into two – hopefully sunny – June days.
Wimborne has been famous for its weekly market since the 19th century. Originally livestock would be driven into the town square each week. Now there’s a Friday market with outdoor stalls and a covered area. Over the weekend the site is used for a flea market and a car boot sale.
Wimborne has its very own Town Crier, who presence in the town dates back to the Civil War. The Civil War connection is also reflected in the existence of a re-enactment society which performs every year around the town.
Schepens is a Bournemouth Moving Company
We’ve been moving families to Wimborne for over a century now, and it’s always a delight to be working around this charming town. Schepens is a family-run, Bournemouth removals company and our aim has been the same since we first began in the early 20th century. We seek to minimise the anxieties that arise in the moving process, and provide stress-free removals for our clients.
Tailor-Made Removals to Wimborne, Bournemouth
We know from experience that there’s nothing ‘standard’ about moving home. That’s why we don’t offer standard removals packages. Instead, a dedicated Move Co-Ordinator will work with you to determine your specific requirement. Then we’ll create a removals plan that reflects them. We aim for accuracy every step of the way. From your free no obligation quote to the time it will take to load the removal van.
Schepens removals services include:
Packing: Our BAR trained professional removals staff can pack up your house for you, label your boxes, and create a detailed inventory of your goods.
Insurance: Your goods are fully insured whilst in transit. Should you require additional Accidental Damage or Extended Liability, we can arrange cover.
Non Standard Goods: If you have goods that require specialist packing and removals, such as a piano, for example, or a piece of fine art, we can arrange transport.
Self Storage: Should you need to store any items or pieces of furniture, Schepens can provide local storage. We offer a door-to-door service and a secure, climate controlled environment.
Transport: Your goods will be shipped in one of our state-of-the-art removals vehicles which maintain a constant temperature and humidity, run on air ride suspension and boast an adjustable bearing system, which ensures little or no movement of vehicle content.
Second-to-None Customer Services
We take pride in the quality of service we consistently offer to our customers. Our removals teams are recruited locally, so they know the region well, and can offer local advice to movers. We also invest in the ongoing professional training of our teams. As a result we can guarantee that they’ll be proactive problem solvers, and ready to go the extra mile if needed.
