When it comes to a lot of removals companies, it’s only natural that most people think they all do the same thing and have similar services. However, while this is often true, certain situations require something a level up from the standard two men and a lorry service. Especially if you’re moving something like a grand piano or a series of large oak pieces of furniture from an apartment complex. It’s not just the value but the awkward nature of these objects and how to move them without damage occurring.
So where would people go if they need a specialist removals service in London?
What Are Anthony Ward Thomas’s Specialist Services?
Even people who have only gone through one or two relocations usually understand the general idea and know what to expect from a removals company. The typical service will either be done by a small, medium or large removals van, with a relative number of people to undertake the move.
However, this doesn’t always get the job done for people who have specific requirements, especially if valuables are part of the load. In these circumstances, a specialist removals service is a necessity to ensure no damage occurs during packing, loading and transit.
Here are some of the removal’s services available as part of Anthony Ward Thomas’s specialist range:
- Antique & Fine Art Removals – ideal for anyone with valuable pieces, which is crucial for people with expensive or irreplaceable items.
- Fragile Removals – much like the Fine Art package, this service applies to any job where the objects are prone to breakage through minimal impact.
- Interior Design & High-End Staging – ideal for anyone who wants to have a professional take over their home staging when selling their house in London.
- Piano Removals – the title says it all, but it’s not always obvious why you need this. Have you ever tried moving your grand piano without taking it apart? Now you understand why we offer this service.
- Removals Crate Hire – the ultimate level of protection for your possessions. These industry-strength containers will prevent any issue with impact during transport.
- Packing Services – let our team take on all the packing duties. Every Anthony Ward Thomas team member is an expert in packing.
- Professional Cleaning – a comprehensive group of professional cleaning services that cover all domestic and business situations.
Premium Removals and Self Storage Packages –
At Anthony Ward Thomas, we do everything to a higher standard because our customers need us to. In the thirty-plus years since the company began, our mission statement is the same: quality is the most important aspect. We take the ordinary removals services and align them with our customers’ needs, and we base this from constant feedback and evaluation.
The following removals packages are our primary range of services and will cover a majority of moving requirements:
Small Moves – our version of a man and van service. This package includes two of our removal’s team members and a van with state-of-the-art equipment and tools. Ideal for removal’s jobs in busy areas and smaller volume of items.
Large Removals – this covers every size of removal up from man with a van. Anthony Ward Thomas has a fleet of vehicles at our disposal. We’ll assign team members to suit the total volume of items per load.
Household Storage – you can create more space in your home by using this package, which comes with the option of a container unit for long-term needs. Or you can also choose …
Self Storage – this package has no restrictions on access during our business hours, whereas container storage has limitations. We would suggest self storage to anyone who requires storage during their relocation.
Business Removals and Storage Services –
It’s not just domestic customers who have access to a range of removal and storage packages. Anthony Ward Thomas works with tens of thousands of business clients every year. And much like our household customers, they require higher standards of service delivery. Furthermore, there are various packages available to suit businesses of any size, from an SME to a large corporation.
Business Moves – if you’re a small business owner and you need to move your company to other premises in London, we will assess and assign the most efficient removal’s package. Similarly, if your enterprise has one-thousand employees, lots of furniture and equipment, we can upscale to handle your exact requirements.
Business Storage – we have storage packages to suit any business, regardless of sector or volume of items. The options are the same as our household customers, and we base this on the period of storage and access needs. If you need regular access, self storage is the most suitable option.
Archive Document Storage – all businesses retain physical documents, usually for legal purposes. This service is the best way of safeguarding your essential records from damage. And it makes it easier to create space when you don’t need lots of filing cabinets in your office.
Using Online Removals Reviews when Booking –
Gone are the days where people would rely on word of mouth recommendations or potluck when booking a removal service. Platforms like Google Live and Trustpilot are changing the way we perceive customer service, giving us more power before booking. Furthermore, it’s possible to access a review from a company’s previous customers.
It works like this – each company that appears on Google automatically gives customers an option to rate them. You can award a company a rating out of five, which can include short-written feedback. By using a company with an average rating of five or just under, the level of service will likely be high.
And, unsurprisingly, Anthony Ward Thomas is a five-star company, and you can read our reviews here for yourself. To us, customer service is of paramount importance, and it connects to everything we do. We never cut corners or try to apply the easier option. It’s about attention to detail and ensuring that every job we sign up for is done on time, efficiently, and to the highest standard possible.
Seamless Removals Services for the UK and Europe –
When we design our removal and storage packages, it’s not solely about the specifications of each service. It’s about the ‘where’ and ‘how to get there’ aspects of moving. Anthony Ward Thomas can relocate you anywhere in the UK. And this is all possible because of our network of partner removals, storage and logistics companies. We have access to depots and warehouses all over Britain, which is a vital component of our National Removals service.
Additionally, this network of partners extends into Europe, giving us further reach for international relocations. It’s a common sight to see an Anthony Ward Thomas van on one of its regular trips overseas, and we have a range of removal’s packages for moves abroad. This includes part-load containers, road and sea freight options.
Furthermore, this works in both directions, which means we can collect you from anywhere in the UK and Europe. It might sound too good to be true, but the process is much the same when moving people from London. We’ll assign a lead person to oversee your international relocation so that everything runs smoothly.
Crate Hire Available for Extra Protection –
This package provides you with the ultimate level of protection for your items when packing, loading, offloading, and unpacking. As you can tell, there are plenty of opportunities where your belongings are at risk during a move. By using an Anthony Ward Thomas crate, you won’t have to worry about any issues with regards to breakages or damage.
This is what you can expect from this service:
- Full crate hire service available
- Crates of every shape and size for any purpose and in any number
- Crates delivery option available
- Crate collection service
- Bespoke crates created for special items
- Crate packing service available on request
- A range of removals services available for domestic and business relocations

We have crates that cater for most items of furniture or appliances, and we can deliver them to your address. It’s also possible for you to collect the containers if that’s easier for you. Our team will also pack these crates to save you time and make sure everything is in the best order inside of the box.
Why Customer Service is Our Number One Priority –
The reason why Anthony Ward Thomas offers a range of primary and specialist removals services is to give our customers as much choice as possible. We’ve been in their situation, and it can be frustrating when a removal company’s team members don’t handle certain items with additional care. No one wants to micromanage their relocation; otherwise, you’d do it yourself.
Customer service is of paramount importance to our company, and it determines everything we offer our clients. Every removal and storage package include a higher level of handling and care. Moreover, your valuable possessions will be completely safe from breakages and damage during your relocation.
