Our Operations During the Tier Lockdown in Dorset

Our Operations During the Tier Lockdown in Dorset

For most people, December is all about Christmas and the festive period, but things will be a bit different this year. However, for people who have a relocation in the works or are planning one, it might be a more anxious time. This is especially true if a problem arises and you need a last-minute move. In the event of an emergency, will there be removals and storage services available in Dorset?

While there will be some days off for the festive season, Woods Removals is open and fully operational. There are no restrictions for us during the tier lockdown system, and we’re greenlighting all bookings. It’s business as usual, and we’ll update everyone with our Christmas and New Year hours soon.  

An Update on Operations During the Tier Lockdown –

Woods Removals will be fully operational throughout the tier lockdown system, in addition to any new measures. We can’t guarantee the government won’t introduce more stringent restrictions at a later date. But we can promise to keep our customers and followers in the loop if it affects how we carry out our removals and storage services.

With this in mind, we’ll update our Christmas and New Year operating times on our website soon. For us, we’ll do whatever we can for anyone who finds themselves in a dire situation where an emergency service is needed. Just to remind everyone – all our current bookings will still go ahead, and we’re accepting new jobs every day.

Additionally, we will book any future removals and storage jobs for next year and will be here to assist with any preparation information. We can give you tips on the best day to undertake your relocation, as well as the more favourable time of year to move. We apply our thorough assessment process to all removals inquiries which results in a free quote.

How to Book an Emergency Relocation in Dorset –

Suppose you are stuck and need a removals service straight away. The first thing is to contact our team as soon as possible. You don’t have to worry about an overly zealous salesperson – there’s no obligation to book with us. We’ll assess your needs and any important information before giving you a free quotation of the most suitable removals service.

Woods has an excellent Man & Van package which is ideal for emergency relocations in Dorset. It’s our most affordable option and comes with two expert removal’s crew members to do all the heavy-lifting work. For properties with three or more bedrooms, it’s usually better to use one of our larger vehicles from our Home Removals service.

We’ll help you create a moving checklist and any other planning tasks before the big moving day. This includes guidance on downloading and using a home inventory app so that you can catalogue your possessions. It’s also a good idea to discuss your relocation with your insurance broker to check you have the right coverage. 

Having Self Storage as a Backup Plan –

One of the best routes to excellent customer service is simplifying the process wherever possible. That means having more options to choose from and a range of services. This is why Woods Removals customers do not need to use multiple service providers. We link our removal and storage packagesv together, creating a seamless relocation with storage as an add-on service.

Storage gives the ultimate level of protection for your belongings or work’s equipment. For people who need a short-term storage option with unlimited access, we will usually suggest self storage. Woods also provides a Container Storage package, which tends to work better for long-term periods of storage. Both storage packages offer you the highest level of protection for your possessions or work’s equipment.

Another reason why people often use self storage during a relocation is as a problem solver. Moving to a new house or apartment can be tricky, especially if several buyers form a mortgage chain. One issue can have a ripple effect, leaving someone with nowhere to store their belongings if a delay occurs. This isn’t a problem for Woods’ customers. All they need to do is contact us, and we’ll have a storage unit ready straight away.

Will International Relocations Be Accepted?

Woods Removals works throughout Dorset every day, but we’re not just moving people locally. We apply the same high standards to national and *international relocations. Our excellent customer service makes us the right removals company for any European relocation. And we work with a network of partner removals and storage companies in the Master Removers Group.

We have associate providers in strategic locations throughout the UK. That means having access to depots and storage warehouses everywhere in Britain, which makes long-distance relocations straightforward. This also serves as a dedicated haulage route for any business or commercial customers who need a distribution service.

Being a member of the Master Removers Group helps us reduce our running costs for national and international relocations. We achieve this by grouping part-loads with other Woods Removals customers. This practice gives us an economy of scale where we can pass on any operational savings directly to our customers.

*International relocations may have additional restrictions in place due to country-specific lockdown rules. Woods Removals will assess the feasibility of any overseas removals inquiries before confirming your booking.

Our Range of Removals and Storage Services –

Woods Removals offers a range of removals and storage services for household and business customers. For us, it’s all about delivering the highest standard of service delivery, and we make this possible by having more choice. We have a fleet of removals vehicles of all sizes, which makes it easier to match everyone’s requirements.

Our Man & Van service is usually the most cost-effective and efficient package available. These vans can handle congestion by taking smaller roads to beat the traffic. And it’s much easier to change the original route to avoid unexpected congestion. Additionally, the vehicles are less likely to cause an obstruction, keeping your neighbours happy while we pack and load everything.

We also have a range of medium or larger vehicles at our disposal. Rather than making multiple trips, we can fit all your belongings into one of our Home Removals vans for a single journey. Matching your needs with the right removals package includes the correct van size. This increases our efficiency and may also save you money.

The Woods Removals team places a lot of emphasis on preparation and planning. We don’t take chances and hope that everything’s ready on the day of the move. Our team assesses every aspect of the job in thorough detail to make sure we’re ready to complete on time. For last-minute situations, we still go through the assessment process. We just speed everything up a notch to make sure we meet the reduced timeframe.

How to Use Online Review Websites –

The internet continues to innovate and change the way we book services and interact with businesses. One of the shifts in power in recent times has been online review platforms. Back in the day, people would ask their inner circles for recommendations, or it was a blind leap of faith when finding a company in the phone book. Luckily, those days are over, and you can find everything you need before signing up with a removals company.

It’s essential you use online reviews before signing up for a service. Rating platforms like Google Live and Trustpilot play a crucial role for customers. You can see what rating out of five a company receives, including feedback from previous customers. Working with Woods Removals is a step in the right direction because we’re a five-star removals company.

Moreover, we apply our Quality Policy to every service we offer, which gives our customers another level of customer service. It all adds up to an unbeatable level of service for your upcoming relocation. And we make sure our rates are competitive, so more people can benefit from an excellent level of service delivery when moving and storing.
