Central Moves uses all the standard equipment that is expected of a professional mover.
Floor protection, padded furniture covers, wardrobe cartons and picture/mirror protectors are used on all house removals jobs, while our vehicles are always equipped with sack trucks and high quality removals blankets.
Occasionally, extra equipment is needed to move unusually heavy items, protect extraordinary objects or allow unconventional access.
Central Moves has all the necessary equipment to move Grand, Baby Grand and Upright pianos. This equipment includes specialist “piano shoes” for Grand and Baby Grand, piano wheels and protective padded covers for all piano sizes. Our staff are trained in the use of the equipment and the safe collection, transportation and delivery of pianos, either as part of a larger move or independently.
As standard, we use padded protective covers for sofas, armchairs, TVs, pictures and mirrors. This range of covers is suitable for almost every domestic house move, but there are times when the standard size or shape is inadequate. On those occasions, we can have protective covers designed and made specifically for the unusual item.
For fine art and particularly fragile large items, we are able to provide bespoke packaging crates, made to the exact specification of the item to be protected. The packaging crates are durable with internal padding, so can be used for UK moves or international shipping.
Central Moves is one of the few removals companies that has an external elevator in its range of specialist removals equipment. Our external lift allows us to move furniture and goods through an upper-floor window. This is particularly useful for moving into or out of upper-floor flats, or if an item is too large to be carried up or down a tight stairwell.
Door and Window Frames
If required, Central Moves can arrange for qualified craftsmen to remove and replace door and window frames, to allow access.
