If you change your list of items or space required to an increased amount, the removalist will adjust the price accordingly. It is advisable to inform Muval as soon as you know that your moving volume has increased. This way, we can plan to avoid any items being left behind on the move day. Please contact Muval about two days before your move once you have finished packing; this way, we can give the correct information to the removalist company before the day. 

If you change your list of items or space required a week before your move, we can usually adjust the price accordingly. In some circumstances this won’t be possible depending on the booking volume and amount of change and notice provided.

We encourage bookings ASAP, and this will hold the price, reserve the space, and give you peace of mind. This can also mean you avoid any future price rise.

If your booking is a premium service, the company will be able to provide exact timing. If your booking is a shared option, then your schedule will be a window between two to seven hours on the move day.

Preferably No, It is better to use a fitted sheet on each side of your mattresses to enclose.

Packing to move house? Where do you start?
Muval have experienced this hundreds of times, and we are here to help you get into gear and prioritise where to start when moving house based on the time you have leading up to your move.
A removalist business without any trucks?
In recent years, waste has increasingly become a consumer focus. More and more are basing their brand loyalty on how well a business deals with its ecological footprint. Companies who do not do enough to cut down their waste whether that be time, space or just plain excess from production can often find their market value dropping purely because they haven’t kept up with consumer concerns. This is especially the case if there is competition who have made reducing waste a priority.
