    Why Move to Desborough

    Located in the Borough of Kettering, Desborough is a small town. As such it offers, a close community feel. It is an appealing mixture of rural charm and modern convenience.

    Desborough is very much a rural location. 22 hectares of green areas provide plenty of recreational opportunities. Plus, the town falls within Rockingham Forest, the Northamptonshire Vales and has the added scenic advantage of the river Ise running through it, getting close to nature is so easy.

    Desborough’s small high street is full of character, lined with old buildings, several of which are pubs boasting a history covering hundreds of years.

    The convenience of the town is evident. The A6 runs through Desborough to the west of the town providing a route in and out to larger locations in the county.

    Whilst it may be charming, Desborough is also progressive.

    The town council has an ambitious Neighbourhood Plan covering 2017-2031. It outlines a swathe of improvements including the provision of new housing, improved infrastructure, and further economic development.

    Though Desborough is not huge as far as towns go, it does provide a certain type of lifestyle that is very much in demand these days – attractiveness combined with connectivity.

    Top Tips When Moving to or From Luton

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

    Buying a new home is both an exciting and anxious time. To help ease the inevitable rise in stress levels that will come along with it, we have prepared some “top tips”. Hopefully they will help to make the whole process a little less daunting.

    • Choose a BAR-registered removal company
    • Book a house move survey either remotely via a video call or in person. Your quotation for the move will then be issued.
    • Receive and approve your quotation for the move.
    • Inform your moving company of your move date as soon as possible.
    • Get organised well ahead of time. A “to-do” list will ensure nothing is forgotten.
    • De-clutter. You don’t want to be dragging unwanted “stuff” from home to home.
    • It is never too early to start packing boxes. Label them clearly.
    • Inform everyone who needs to know that you are moving. Doctors, banks, DVLA, energy suppliers etc.
    • Ensure all important items such as passports (particularly for international moves), are not packed.
    • Leave enough time to give the house a thorough clean.
    • Pack an essentials/overnight bag with all you need as soon as you arrive at your new home.

    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 also subject to a lot of vibration. This 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. Transporting your consignment is a classic example.

    We pack and load your effects with utmost care and attention. However, 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.

    Our in house insurance service in not mandatory.

    If you decide not to take out any insurance with us, you may find your own home 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.

    Renting a Home in Desborough

    For several reasons, buying a home in parts of the UK is off-limits to many.

    Rising rental costs, wage freezes, and a shortage of affordable homes have resulted in high demand.

    Although renting a home is sometimes the only solution, it does provide you with the opportunity to take your time and experience an area before buying.

    True to form, there are very few rental homes within Desborough itself.

    Even extending your search to within a three-mile radius of the town there is still limited availability.

    If you are opting to rent for the first time it pays to do your homework.

    For a thorough explanation of how to go about finding the right home for you and what you can expect process-wise, visit the Citizen’s Advice website.

    Their “Finding a Home to Rent” article is packed with helpful advice and tips.
