    Why Move to Kempston

    Up until the 19th century, Kempston was a mainly rural parish.

    It was during the last period of the 1800s that it began to develop and acquire a more urban feel.

    Even now, although it is classified as a town, it still feels more like a large village.

    Like so many towns in the region, the Great River Ouse is a prominent feature, separating it from the Queen’s Park area of Bedford.

    The earliest settlers were of Saxon origin, the area has been inhabited for a very long time.

    A number of interesting exhibits from the Saxon era were unearthed at the local cemetery.

    The best way to find out more about Kempston’s heritage is by joining a guided walk

    Nowadays, the town has everything you need for modern life.

    Nine leisure centres combine to offer a string of physical activities to get involved with for all ages such as football, badminton, squash, golf, and tennis.

    The multi-award-winning Kempston Outdoor Centre is the perfect place to enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities and water sports.

    For nature lovers, you’ll love the wide green spaces that can be found around Kempston.

    Clapham Park Wood is a great one to investigate.

    There is absolutely zero chance of boredom when you live in Kempston.

    Kempston has opportunities for employment and is also ideally placed for a wider work base.

    Being within easy access to Bedford, the A1, the M1, Milton Keynes, Cambridge, and Luton makes travel so easy.

    Having everything at your fingertips, Kempston provides all you need to enjoy modern living amid the very best of amenities.

    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 in order to avoid 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 also 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.

    Insurance

    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.
