A large buzzing Cathedral City, Peterborough sits within the affluent county of Cambridgeshire. A well-integrated road network boasts the fastest peak travel times for a city of its size in the UK, due to the construction of its parkways (a system of main roads).
Today the wealth of transport solutions available to residents has helped Peterborough morph into a very practical commuter town to rival some of the best in the region. Peterborough has also become an important regional centre, giving employment and services to people across a wide catchment area.
Millions of pounds have been invested in regeneration projects all over the city.
Projects such as the historic Cathedral Square offer residents a vibrant pedestrianised space at the heart of Peterborough’s compact city centre. A buzzing hub filled with cafes, restaurants, and shops.
As part of the extensive development of the city, thousands of new homes have been built or are under construction. Peterborough is still expanding!

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.
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.

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.
