Frequently asked questions…
Many smaller companies fail to provide accurate quotes which leads to nasty unexpected bills on the day of your move – not what you want when you’re already stressed! This is usually because they don’t come out to see your premises, however at Terry’s we always come out to your property so you know exactly the level of service you need, what’s included and what’s not.
Another problem we commonly see is companies that want to do multiple trips with just one vehicle. These quotes may be cheeper in the short term but often result in damages to your possessions due to overloaded vans. This can cause a whole host of problems because if you do not vacate your existing property by 2pm anything left inside it is legally no longer yours! At Terry’s, we have a large fleet of vans and lorries, so you know you’re getting the right one for your move however big or small. We take every detail into consideration to make sure you have a stress free experience.
We create a bespoke moving plan for every single move we do. We come an visit your property and discuss exactly the level of service you need.

We carefully consider the size of vehicle you need to keep your possessions safe and sound in transit and delivery as well as the number of team members we’ll need to carry out the service efficiently.
