    Moving to a new home is both an exciting and challenging life transition. Whether you’re relocating to the charming town of Cannock, the historic city of Lichfield, the tranquil town of Stafford, or the vibrant city of Birmingham, adapting to a new environment can be a daunting task. With over 35 years of experience in the moving industry, I’ve witnessed countless individuals and families successfully settle into their new homes. In this article, I’ll provide expert insights, advice, and coping strategies to help you make a smooth transition and build a happy and fulfilling life in your new UK home.

    Amazing service!! Without James and his team, my move probably wouldn't have happened. They got me out of a tight spot at really short notice thanks to solicitors not exchanging contracts until 4 days before my move Extremely professional set up from the minute they arrived, throughout the whole day up until they left. They took great care with my furniture and other possessions and so skilled In getting everything into my brand new build property without causing any damage. I would recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone needed a professional, reliable and caring removals firm at a very reasonable price. For anyone moving in and around Staffordshire Moving Circles are the 👌

    Couldn’t fault the service provided by Moving Circle Removals. We couldn’t be happier with the communication and value for money for a move of some distance. Thankyou

    James & team recently helped us move house - we cannot fault the service and would highly recommend. James was really professional from the outset and also very flexible when our completion date kept moving around (unlike many other removal companies). The team that turned up on the day to support the move was also great - efficient and worked really hard throughout the move day. Moving Circles was also highly competitive in their pricing. Thank you Moving Circles - would definitely work with your team again in future!

    We used Moving CIrcles for our recent move and I am so glad that we did . From the very first consultation right through to the actual move, I cannot fault the service that we received. The guys that did the move were very friendly and professional throughout, nothing was damaged and everything was put where we asked. I would highly recommend James and the team who certainly went above and beyond to ensure a smooth move. Thank you so much.
    How much do movers cost for a two bedroom apartment uk?

    How much does a removal service cost when moving flat? On average, the removal cost for a 2 bedroom flat will usually cost somewhere in the range of £315 and £500, plus VAT.

    How much do you tip movers?

    A good rule is to give £20-£25 to each person from the moving team for a half-day. If they have been working for the entire day, it might be reasonable to give them £40 to £50 for their efforts. A little extra would be nice if they have been taking heavy items up and down the stairs.

    What is the most expensive day to Move?

    Tuesday is the most expensive day to move house. If you're choosing your moving date primarily for financial reasons, then Sunday is the best day to move house for you. Book your removal company in advance and compare removal companies to ensure you're getting the best possible deal for your removal costs.
