Removal job from Streatham to Walthamstow
See below for an account of another smooth job, this time moving a London couple from a flat to a larger house…
Moving from: a flat in Streatham
Moving to: a house in Walthamstow
Vehicle required: 2 x Luton vans
Number of movers: 2
Time taken: 3 hours
This one was all about moving a couple who were upsizing, going from a smaller 2-bed flat in Streatham to a 3-bed house in Walthamstow.
Before the move
We weighed up the job here and decided we’d need to sent out two movers and two of our Luton vans for this one, to ensure that the entire move could be completed in a single trip.
Making the move
Due to the timing of this job – we were looking at finishing the load-up around 5pm, right at the start of peak rush hour – we figured our worst enemy was going to be the London traffic!
However, thanks to our LiveTraffic satellite navigation system, the actual journey time was roughly one hour in the end, which isn’t bad at all for this time of day.
The route we came up with to avoid the worst of the snarl-ups took us down some smaller back roads, steering us from Streatham to Walthamstow via Camberwell, Rotherhithe Tunnel, Limehouse/Canary Wharf and the North Circular (A406). This proved to be a very handy route for us, and we arrived sooner than we’d expected.
The clients didn’t present us with anything too difficult to move, so everything was fairly straightforward during load-in. Our customers had already packed everything up prior to the move too, and even offered up an extra couple of pairs of hands as a bonus.
Parking was a little tricky at each end of the move, as both pick-up and destination were on fairly tight residential roads, but we managed to find a suitable spot fairly close by in each case. There were a few fragile items to take care of, but we wrapped them up safely and securely with removals blankets and made sure they were well looked after.
Another pair of happy customers, who then took the trouble to leave us a very handy review on Google Plus – always appreciated, so thank you!
