Socially Distanced Surveying – keeping as safe as possible during the planning of a move
With tighter covid restrictions and the need to bring its impact under control, it is a challenge to keep safe and also to know how best to manage some of life’s bigger moments – like moving house, or moving offices or education departments. Or any move in many sectors … retail, manufacturing, hotels, property management companies, and more.
Keeping move plans on track and on time wherever possible
One quick and easy way to ensure that you can keep your plans on track as best as possible, is to find ways that help fast-track your plans. Once you are ready to receive quotations for moving your home, office, or commercial space, you can organise your smooth move with a video survey.
Simply video your current location, the items you will need moving, the estimated quantity of boxed items, and a plan of your new place too.
No site is too small or too large! Even if you are a school and spread over a number of buildings, we have the vehicles and the capacity to handle any size of move. This includes moving locally – around the corner, to anywhere around the world.
How to send us your video survey for your upcoming move
Send in your video to us – you can WhatsApp or transfer large files to us by following our guidelines here.
What is even easier is knowing that this is a no-obligation quote. Anything to keep your moving arrangements as stress-free as you can!
Removals Video Survey a time-saver and safety measure
Instead of organising a property viewing in person to determine the scope of your move, a video survey is a time-saver. It also keeps everyone safe during this time of covid. Especially if your move involves education facilities – from reorganising classrooms, moving to a different building, or relocating and entire department to another part of town. A video survey will ensure minimal activity where students are also needing to stay as safe as possible if they are in attendance.
Unusual moves – and surveying
At Shires we have the fleet size to carry out considerable moves. Also unusual moves. If you have atypical items that require moving, we also have a crane should this be needed. We cover a full service that includes packing, shrink-wrapping, racking (as we did for a large commercial Service Centre where we coordinated and moved all their stock as a result of a business merger).
All of these moving, packing, and storage requirements will be able to be recorded on video should it be preferable in the coming months. We will be able to quote from this and pick up on any further questions if the need arises. You can send your video survey in the same way as you would for a regular domestic house move.
Some other useful information to send with your video survey for moving
- It is very helpful to be provided with the postcodes and addresses for both locations – the one you are moving from, and to.
- Any details about the pick up and delivery properties – are there stairs? Are they flats or houses? Any access restrictions that we should know about? (We have been known to crane-lift items through a top floor window! All safely and professionally carried out, of course!)
- And, of course, when you would like the removal service to take place.
- If, in between moving, you need any storage? We have short-term and long-term 24/7 secure storage facilities.
- Do you need to make use of our packing service?
It’s as quick and easy as reaching for your phone or a tablet. Record. Send.
And if, after you have sent your video survey for quoting, and you wish to add further items, get in touch so that we can adjust the quote if needed, and also to be aware of any additional requests. We would like to accommodate your safe move to the best standard, especially during this challenging pandemic.
A follow up visit in person may be needed once we have assessed the video survey for your move, and in this instance we would ask that only one person is in attendance. And we’ll be socially distanced, of course.
We know that plans need to be flexible due to the nature of the virus, and we follow all government safety procedures and requirements.
