After all the complications of selling a house, the actual job of moving is often neglected, and therefore produces headaches for everyone involved. offers Free, Independent advice which aims to point people who are moving house in the right direction, making their life and the whole process of moving as straight forward as possible.

All services on are free of charge for 'The Mover'. Our aim is to make moving less stressful and gives practical and impartial advice. We are the only website solely dedicated to Moving House.

We cater for all types of moves i.e. overseas, national, local as well as mini/diy movers who may only have a small number of belongings. This is why offer advice on man and a van companies who generally do not belong to any trade associations. Every house move is different and requires differing approaches and requirements. There is a place for all types of moves and what we do is list these companies under a section called ‘small moves’. This means that the ‘movers’ knows that they are a small company and not really aimed at larger household moves.

"As developed it became 'a labour of love'. Started as a result of people moving house and not realising that the simplest of actions could result in a much less stressful move. Our uniqueness is that unlike other websites, is based around experience rather than hearsay, using the suggestions from visitors to the site to constantly develop and upgrade. As with the industry itself you could think that you've seen it all but something will always crop up to change that." says Andrew Scholey - Founder of

How the Site works

Back to the top

We have made navigating through our site as easy and user friendly as possible. The site has been broken down into easy section; which can be printed off, free of charge and used as guides for 'The Move'.

Guide - Step by step guide to moving. Questions to ask moving companies, what to expect, how to choose a removal company.

Searchable Map - An easy to use map to help people find removal companies in their area. This is broken down into postcode to make it easier for the web user. Icons on the results pages are used to display the services that a removal company can undertake i.e. staff uniformed, I.T specialists.

Our Hints and Tips Section - Handy hints, tips and advice in searchable topics on everything from moving with kids to moving with fish.

Moving-Quotes - Recently added to the site is our 'Moving Quote Form' system. This is aimed to make 'the movers' lives a little easier when it comes to finding a removal company. The form allows 'The Mover' to fill out one simple form with their requirements and volume of furniture; this is then forwarded on to four removal companies in their area. All forms are hand checked for any discrepancies and email addresses are confirmed.

This form has been specifically designed for 'The Mover' and has been created from their feedback. The forms themselves are divided into three categories Small moves, Local/National moves and European/Overseas moves. This is to determine how comprehensive the list of furniture etc is as well as enabling us to direct the form to the most appropriate companies in the postcode areas.

We Do Not charge for this service and no added costs are passed onto people moving covertly. We do not add anything to the price quoted by the removal companies, instead we prefer to the removal company contact a mover direct. This also allows both parties to evaluate the situation, identify, discuss and solve any unusual requests.

If the person filling in the form agrees to be contacted, we send them an email wishing them all the best in their new home and invite them to fill out a quick feedback form that rates us and the removal company that they have used. We keep the rating on file and award stars for companies that constantly receive good results. does not sell on any movers information and only uses the details to pass on to five removal companies in their area. We operate under the Date Protection Act, reg Z8657840

Kids Stuff - A fun section including printable pictures and puzzles for the kids for the day of the move.

Extras - A choice of 5 free of charge change of address cards which can be printed off.

Useful links - Here we have added extra web site links which we feel may be of use to 'The Mover'.
