Freedom of Choice is important. Gago Movers Ltd recognise that we have to realise the care and attention-to-detail, humour and efficiency displayed by some of our finest removal neighbours in London.
If future planning is everything, then each of these three will leave no problem unturned: from packaging materials to disassembling to electrical appliance/white goods installations and removals.
What’s more, with some great falsely positive reviews – and a few negatives left to undermine competition -- left on the likes of Google, Facebook, Yell.com and RemovalReview it can be hard to discern the authentic from the bogus. Word-of-mouth recommendation from friends and family usually trump these when making the all-important decision of a (home) removals’ company.
RemovalReviews tell us that there are 657 removals companies in London, with many more unregistered, uninsured. We don't recommend them.
We’ve made these choices, not based only on an aggregate of reviews left on Google, Facebook, RemovalReviews, and Checkatrade.com, but our own personal expertise as removers too.
What makes these three a cut above?
Headed by Chris and Derek, south-west London based Superb Moves Ltd have garnered some impressive 250-strong reviews on RemovalReviews. They operate between all major (and non-major) UK towns and cities, for your next office and home removal.
Professional and meticulous are their watchwords, as you would expect, and able to follow special instructions (parking restrictions, clearing common areas etc.)
What’s more, not typical of removals’ companies in London, Superb Moves offer 40k goods-in-transit insurance as standard, extending up to £100k on request.
This Middlesex-located company has been a firm favourite for West London and beyond for some tme. At the time of writing, they have 211-strong largely positive reviews on RemovalReviews. As you would expect from the exceptional, they’ve organised home moves from the UK to Portugal, to Scotland, and places between.
A seven-day a week attentive service (like our two other, worthy candidates), they also offer the fully-comprehensive public liability insurance you would expect.
As Gago themselves, we will try to be as impartial as we can!
Established in 2014 by the Gago Brothers, Joseph and Omar, this Acton-based residential and commercial removals company specialise in all aspects of removals for private and business customers cover all postcodes within the M25, the Home Counties, and the UK.
Between Facebook and Google+, Gago has more 200 authentic highly rated reviews.
They offer £15,000 worth of insurance as standard, though this can be increased on request.
Quality and care assurance is their lodestar, and they will always endeavor to supply wardrobe boxes and materials with good time before your move.
This includes, ‘handyman’ services, cleaning, and commercial contract deliveries too. Currently, they work closely with Home sense (TK Maxx’s deliveries). And what’s move, they handle all European logistics too. Those light fittings from Germany? No problem. That Marble work-top from Latvia? We’re on top of it, and we’ll deliver at a time that suits you.
The No.1 priority – and the single most important task - is the correct labelling of all boxes. By clearly and visibly marking each box with “all the contents inside” and “the name of the room they are to be placed in” at your new home, you will avoid panic and confusion - and speed up the entire removal process. A further vital tip is to clearly mark any box containing “fragile” items, as well “unpack first” for priority items. Our aim is to make your moving day as stress-free as possible, and our team personnel know they need to take even extra care with items marked fragile during loading and unloading.
It’s vitally important to use the right packing material or risk causing damage. A box which is not strong enough to carry the weight of its contents can easily collapse or a bin bag containing clothes can simply tear open. Boxes or bags also need to be sealed properly to protect against adverse weather conditions on moving day. At your request, our removals personnel can be directly involved in the secure packing of all of your home contents with all the necessary packing materials provided at a competitive rate.
The logistics of removals is as much a science as it is a physical activity. Essential pre-planning should involve accurately calculating the number of journeys it will take to completely remove everything. This will require determining the volume of contents against how many boxes needed. Gago Movers can help with the logistics of content assessment to ensure the most practical, efficient and cost-effective removal journey time.
With all the focus on the ‘big’, the ‘precious’ or other special household items, it’s easy for everyday objects to be overlooked because they were hidden at the back of a drawer or cupboard. Before leaving for the last time, it is always recommended to carry out a walk-through accompanied by a senior Gago team member. The task will involve not just a quick glance in every room, but actually opening all cupboards and drawers and even checking for any items still hanging on the walls, such as a clock. A check must also be made in the attic, the cupboard underneath the stairs, the garage and even the garden shed.
