In the thirty years since Anthony Ward Thomas first started offering removals services in London, it’s safe to say we know a thing or two about the industry. One of the most important developments in this time is technology. It’s now much easier to seek out information online than previously, and large number of people were reliant on potluck when booking a service. Now you can find the answers to most queries with a few clicks and some patient digging.
We’re very proactive when it comes to providing knowledge to make this process more straightforward. Our News section has over one hundred articles dating back several years. You can read about subjects that align with the concerns of our customers by clicking here. In this blog, we’re revisiting five of Anthony Ward Thomas’s most popular subjects.
A Retrospective on What Matters to our Customers –
This blog aims to look at the things our website visitors click on frequently and revisit them. We hope it will give you an idea of the types of topics that matter the most and would likely benefit others who might’ve missed them. From here, we can consider scenarios that might apply to potential customers. Then we’ll create content that provides answers and ultimately makes life easier.
That’s always been our ambition – to use our platform to inform and help as many people as possible. While the internet has been a blessing in many ways, there’s a lot to wade through. Anthony Ward Thomas’s clients trust us and know we understand what they’re trying to achieve. For this reason, they go directly to our website when they have a question.
Each section in this article will discuss one of our previous blogs in more detail, giving a brief overview of its content. We’ll then highlight the salient points and add any updated comments for you to consider. From there, you’ll have an easy reference point to find useful tips for several different subjects. Let’s start by looking at how to relocate and take your plants.
Moving to a New Home and Taking Your Plants –
This section will go through our previous blog that covers everything you need to know when moving and taking your plants with you. It’s clear that Anthony Ward Thomas’s customers have green fingers because this is our highest viewed blog. And it makes sense that people would want to take their plants and flowers with them when relocating. But where would someone even start when trying to do this?
There are several parts to how this works, and it all begins with choosing the right moving company. We have the capacity and equipment to handle this, but most won’t. You can’t take it for granted because the movers might refuse to accept the plants on moving day if you don’t pre-warn them. Plus, it will be best if you’re confident they know what they’re doing before you commit to booking them.
You’ll also need to know about things like uprooting, hydration when in transit, plant preparation and many more. The article will give you all the necessary steps to help you plan and organise this type of relocation. If you have any further questions, our team will gladly discuss how we handle these moves in more detail. The main point to remember is that Anthony Ward Thomas has the experience and tools to relocate your plants and flowers to your new location safely.
Relocating with Your Valuable Wine Collection –
Next, we’ll look at a recently updated article that covers rare, valuable wines and how to handle and pack them when moving. Many of our customers have superb vino collections that are expensive, but above all else, cherished. Anyone in the know will understand the actual value is more than its price tag. Things become tricky when moving the bottles from one location to the next without damage occurring.
Essentially, in our previous blog, we weigh up the pros and cons of using experts to perform this task. It won’t come as a surprise that we’re heavily in favour of you working with us instead of attempting a DIY move. From experience, we know that’s the best way to ensure there are no expensive breakages. All it takes is one wrong move to lose your finest bottle of Romanée-Conti, not to mention the waste.
It takes years of dedication and skill to handle and pack fine wines correctly, and it goes beyond adding more padding. One of the key aspects of securing these wine bottles is how the movers position everything in the removal van. This is to avoid any collisions when in transit, in addition to ensuring the packaging doesn’t damage the casing or label. It also makes it possible to unpack with ease when you arrive.
Moving Home Late in Life – Retiree Relocations –
Relocating at any stage in your life is challenging enough, but it’s decidedly more difficult for people who are retiring. You’ll almost certainly have to rely on the provider of the removal to do the heavy lifting. And that puts you in a position where you have to trust them with valuables you might otherwise want more control over. This can cause a lot of additional stress when there’s more than enough already.
Luckily this isn’t an issue when you book with us. However, we like to cover every angle, and that’s why we published this article. We provide you with nine essential moving tips for retirees who are relocating in or to London, whether you choose to work with us or not. It’s an easy-to-follow guide that goes through every task you’ll need to cover.
Should you book your relocation with us, you’ll cut your duties in half with one decision. There are even more opportunities to delegate responsibilities to our team by choosing some of our add-on services. We have a dedicated Packing service where experts will load and inventory everything for you. For those items that require another level of protection, you can store them in a custom crate. There’s no better way to prepare than getting us to do a majority of the labour-intensive action points for you.
