Would be really grateful for recommendations and also the other points ive raised thanks ever so much for any help in this matter. Zoe
We are using Excess Movers - they are coming to collect next week. We havent got a lot of stuff - about 480 cubic feet, which is only 1/2 20 ft container. We are paying £2,500 and we had the "is it worth it debate" My advice would be to fill in your spare insurance form to see the value of your stuff. My clothes were worth more than the container - didnt even realise. For example how many pairs of jeans have you got at £40 a pair !! Then theres the shoes - oh dear ha ha ha! Thats before you add on the electricals. I was really surprised that it was best part of 8K and we didnt include everything. When you think about your photos too - money well spent I say. Plus the things we have sold we got next to nothing for - so will have to pay towards them. Just so you know we had 3 quotes - all roughly the same - but our friends used Excess and said they were good.
Hope this helps
