Long distance moves
It’s important you pick carefully when selecting removals companies Brighton who understand with long distance moves. Their vehicles need to be in good shape and relatively new: most old Lutons, which a lot of removals companies Brighton use, will struggle to travel long distances.
If you have quite a lot to transport, you will save time and money using larger 7.5-tonne vehicles. These are twice as big as a Long wheel base extended Luton van. Using one of these vehicles instead of 2 smaller vans means you save on petrol, manpower and carbon emissions as well as cash. Some also contain a sleeping cabin in case the driver needs to sleep there overnight, depending on distance! At Gold Bear, we have a mixture of all vans and can scale them up or down depending on the size of the move.
We carry out multiple long distance moves every month, stretching right across the country. We tend to load up our customers the day before the move so that we can make an early start the next morning. If we’re packing our customers belongings too, we tend to do this the day before the load. Depending on the services you require, we can even unpack all of your boxes the other end at your new house. We can also take away any packaging with us so you don’t have lots of clutter.
Move to storage
We spend a lot of time moving customers in and out of storage in and around Brighton. It’s a perfect solution if you’re house isn’t ready to move yet and you have a gap between lets. It’s also a great solution or if you’re going traveling and abandoning home all together for a while.
Moving items into storage normally takes a little longer than domestic moves because of the different processes involved. However because we don’t have to wait around for keys on the day, it can often end up saving our customers time!
At Gold Bear Removals Brighton we know all of the local storage facilities. However, we get excellent rates from our partners Pelican Storage in Shoreham. If you are planning a removals worthing this could be ideal for you as well.
