We are very proud to be helping to raise money for the The Freddie Farmer Foundation which is such a worth while and fantastic charity. For clients whom we are moving we offer a service where they are able to donate any resalable unwanted furniture which we take to various local auction houses to sell, all of the funds raised for this goes to the charity and of course we transport and store all of the goods free of charge.
The Freddie Farmer Foundation was formed in 2011 to raise the funds needed to set up a specialized physiotherapy centre in south-east London for children and young people with cerebral palsy and serious mobility problems. The inspiration behind it all is 10 year old Freddie Farmer who was born at 28 weeks with cerebral palsy, weighing just 2lb 12oz.
Thanks to the overwhelming support of Freddie's family and friends, the charity has now been able to purchase a property in Bromley which has undergone renovation to create a floor-based exercise room and a specialist gym therapy room and associated rooms involving, crucially, a piece of equipment called ‘The Spider’, with elasticized ropes so that children can do their exercises upright. The new centre will open in 2015.

Top Moving Tips - Packing
Each month we will ask our staff their top tips on all aspects of removals. This month we are concentrating on Packing.
1. Always leave yourself enough time to pack before your removal. Pack into boxes the goods you can do without and leave the basic equipment you use every day until last. It is important that when your removal team arrives you are ready for them to move your goods;
2. Label each box with the contents and the room you would like it delivered to in your new home. This way you can unpack the boxes in the correct order and rooms. Anything fragile should be marked clearly and pointed out to the movers before they start work;
3. Seal the bottom and top of each box thoroughly. It is important to fill each box to the very top, so they are solid. For fragile packing always pad the bottom of the box first (with tissue paper or a similar material), then use layers of the same material to keep your goods separate and safe from harm. You should also place heavier goods at the bottom of boxes followed by adding lighter items higher up in the box;
4. Of course the best way you can take care of the goods you need packed is to leave it to the professionals. This way the contents of the boxes are covered by insurance and packed properly. We can tailor make our service to you to pack all or just some of your goods, as you request,
5. Finally, please call us with any advice you require. We are always on hand to give you advice and to help in any way we can.
Thank you to all of the clients that we have moved and will be moving soon.
