    Why Move to Cranfield

    When you are looking for a new home, many factors determine where you settle. Most people want to live in a location that offers a little of everything.

    Easy travel connections, nearby attractions, green space, good local schools and amenities are just a few of the must-haves.

    The traditional Bedfordshire village of Cranfield goes a long way to satisfying all these requirements.

    The county is known for its stunning scenery and many world-famous attractions. The beautiful

    Chiltern Hills and Woburn Safari Park are both nearby, posing plenty of outdoor activities.

    Perhaps the village is best known for being the home of Cranfield University and Cranfield Airport (an airfield).

    Cranfield’s population of around 6300 can reach larger locations easily. Towns such as Milton Keynes and Bedford are less than 10 miles away. Luton is around 18 miles and is home to the closest international airport.

    Even London is not out of the question. By train, the journey takes just under an hour.

    Cranfield is very much a place to come home to where you can relax away from the stresses and strains of work.

    Top Tips When Moving to or From Cranfield

    Lund Conlon Removers & Storers have a wealth of experience to share, having been in the removal industry for many years.

    Buying a new home is an exciting opportunity but it is also a very stressful time. To help combat the stress, we have prepared some “top tips” that will hopefully help to make the whole process a little less daunting.

    • Choose a BAR-registered removal company. Using a BAR-registered company gives you the peace of mind that only comes from using a reputable, professional, and financially protected remover.
    • Inform your moving company of your move date as soon as possible.
    • Get organised well ahead of time. De-clutter. Why pay for moving things you no longer use?
    • It is never too early to start packing boxes. Label them clearly.
    • Inform everyone who needs to know about your move. Doctors, banks, DVLA, energy suppliers etc.
    • Ensure all important items such as passports (particularly for international moves), are not packed.
    • Leave yourself enough time to give the house a thorough clean.

    Packing for a UK Move

    At Lund Conlon, we understand just how important it is to use only the best packing materials for your move.

    We train our staff to pack and wrap your precious belongings carefully and skillfully. Thus minimising  damage to your property.

    On your move day, the removal team will arrive with all the materials required to carry out your move.

    Your belongings will be carefully placed into a range of different-sized boxes.

    Depending on what is being packed; books, clothing, glassware, china, pots, and pans. Our team are fully prepared to pack any items you may have.

    We are proud to say that our cartons are made from environmentally friendly materials so can be fully recycled.

    Bubble wrap and tissue paper are used to protect your fragile items.

    Anything requiring specialist care, such as antiques, will be packed in made-to-measure wooden crates for extra protection.

    You may be relocating to a new home a few miles away or traveling thousands of miles to an international destination.

    Irrespective of the distance, our comprehensive knowledge of the packing process will mean your effects will arrive safe and sound

    There is rarely a situation we have not encountered.

    You can rest assured that you are in safe hands with Lund Conlon Removers & Storers.

    Packing for a European or International Move

    Lund Conlon has as many years of experience in moving people to Europe and Internationally as it has within the UK.

    The packing process is largely the same for moves further afield. However, extra padding and covering will be used to minimize movement during transport.

    As the packing commences, the team will complete a comprehensive inventory of all your belongings as each box is filled or item wrapped.

    Our experienced pre-move surveyor will provide you beforehand with the customs regulations pertaining to your destination country.

    Depending on where in the world your consignment needs to go, your effects could travel by sea, air, or road.

    International consignments are generally containerised, and sent by sea.

    Journey times vary according to country, but, it can take several weeks for your consignment to arrive at its destination countries port of entry.

    It is vital that everything is secure and well packed as these large vessels often encounter rough seas.

    Long road journeys are subject to a lot of vibration which can sometimes result in load shifting.

    Protecting and securing the load tightly is  imperative.

    Irrespective of how your goods are transported Lund Conlon’s first-class packers work hard to make sure that everything arrives in one piece.


    At Lund Conlon we pride ourselves on delivering a first-class service.

    However, no matter how meticulously our moves are carried out, there are risks involved which are outside our control. Transporting your consignment is a classic example.

    Whilst we may have packed and loaded your effects with utmost care and attention, there is always a possibility, however slight, that an accident could occur whilst they are in transit.

    This is why we offer our customers insurance cover.

    If you provide us with an insurance declaration of the value of your goods, the amount of our liability to you in the event of loss or damage to those goods will be a maximum of £50,000.

    We can accept insurance liability for a higher amount, in which case we may make an additional charge.

    If you decide not to take out any insurance with us, you may find your own house insurance has some form of cover for goods in transit.

    For anything we move for you which is not covered by either your own or our insurance, in the event of any loss or damages, caused by negligence or breach of contract on our part.

    Our liability to you will be assessed as a sum equivalent to the cost of their repair or replacement, subject to a maximum liability of £40 per item.

    Just speak to our helpful surveyor when he undertakes your house move survey and he can clarify the process for you.

    Cranfield Property

    The property market in Cranfield is both busy and varied. There is currently a high demand for properties in the village, but supply is limited.

    Homes sell for over the UK national average. However, the average does not quite explain the real situation as some great bargains can be found in Cranfield.

    First-time buyers have a good choice of homes offering one-bedroom accommodation.

    For a little character, some very appealing listed homes are set along quiet lanes. These do come onto the market occasionally but are snapped up quickly. Church Walk is a good location for this type of property.

    Larger homes are spread throughout the village so those moving with families can also find something a little larger to suit them.

    Cranfield is expanding, so you will find some well-known construction company developments underway.

    Michael Graham and Urban & Rural both offer brand-new homes for sale.

    Cranfield Renting

    It is not as easy as it used to be to find a property to rent.

    Renting a home was once seen as a cheap way to be independent.

    These days, the demand for rentals has rapidly outgrown availability and prices are following suit creating an unusual set of circumstances.

    As renting a property has increased so much, it has made it increasingly difficult to find suitable accommodation at the right price.

    With the latest increases in mortgage rates, first-time buyers are now struggling with their mortgage applications. Banks and building societies have now become less willing to lend.

    It could prove problematic if you intend to rent a home in or near Cranfield. Sadly, there are very few homes to lease within the village.

    You may want to consider widening your search to a three-mile radius which will increase the number of vacant homes available quite considerably ensuring you will find something to suit your circumstances.
