Present-day Northampton is the latest in a series of settlements that began as far back as the Bronze Age. Having evolved through the years, Northampton has now become a sizeable town.
It sits in an incredibly central location which is both practical and convenient and within easy reach of a number of major cities. Northampton is all about connectivity.
The town is situated in the beautiful county of Northamptonshire, “the rose of the shires”.
With a rich cultural heritage combined with rural tranquillity and plenty of modern amenities, Northampton is one to consider if you are planning a move to the Midlands.
Plus, Northamptonshire has its own university with as many as 14,500 students enrolling annually.
In 2020, Northampton was awarded Purple Flag Status, due to the town’s fantastic nightlife.
Nearby you can visit some great attractions including the Silverstone Race Circuit and the Santa Pod Raceway. With the Grand Union Canal on your doorstep, Northampton has the entertainment factor all sewn up.
Northampton continues to expand and rejuvenate old areas of the town, ensuring it retains its reputation as a vibrant town to live, study and work in.
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” that will hopefully help to make the whole process a little less daunting:
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.
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.
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.
