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.
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
You are in safe hands. There is rarely a situation we have not encountered.
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.
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.
Everyone has a different idea of what they want from their home location.
Having the convenience of good shops close by is important, even imperative for some who cannot drive.
It’s good to know that although Royston is very well connected, you don’t have to travel outside the town for anything if you don’t want to.
Shopping along the main retail street is an absolute pleasure. Many stores are housed in old historical buildings giving the town an olde charm feel. But don’t be fooled, there is a good mix of everything here.
From clothes to computers, florists to homewares and most importantly a local off-license and wine merchants!
Outside the main shopping hub is a good mix of other shops. Orchard Road is home to some of the town’s practical stores such as Jewson’s. Plus, you will find many of Royston’s vehicle repair garages dotted about this area.
There are several smaller supermarkets including a Tesco Express and Costcutter. The largest stores are a Tesco Extra to the north of the town and a large Aldi to the west side.

Held in Market Square every Wednesday and Saturday, the local market offers a broad selection of goods including food, fashion giftware and more.

If you are interested, their website publishes crime statistics for the area so may be worth investigating further.
Seven schools combine to provide Royston’s children with an assortment of education options.
For children aged between 3-11 years, St Mary Roman Catholic Primary School is a good choice with an Ofsted “outstanding” rating.
The state secondary schools in the county are almost entirely non-selective comprehensives. Bar a few who still require students to sit an entrance exam.
King James Academy Royston caters for the 9–18-year age group. This school was rated as “good” by Ofsted. Although modest in size, its students consistently achieve excellent GCSE results.
There is no FE college in the town, so students need to travel outside the area. However, there are four colleges in the county to choose from.
At 17 miles, North Hertfordshire College is the closest providing a good assortment of courses and qualifications.
As travel connections are so good, getting from A to B when you live in Royston is a simple affair.

There are going to be some things you need to attend to and can’t afford to leave until later when you first arrive in Royston.
Council Tax: Arranging for payment of your Council Tax will be via North Herts Council. You can visit their website to determine how much you need to pay and to set up a direct debit for payment.
Register with a Doctor: Organising which doctor will be closest to where you live must also be done quickly. Three surgeries serve the town. Market Hill Surgery, Roysia Surgery (Royston) and Royston Health Centre.

For anything else you are not sure about, you can visit the Royston Town Council where you will discover plenty of practical information, ideal for those new to the area.
Owning your own property is a common dream for many, however, it has become increasingly out of reach.
The higher cost of living, supply and demand and mortgage lenders requiring higher deposits are just a few of the reasons why getting on the property ladder is so hard.
The great news for buyers is that Royston provides some very reasonably priced homes that come in under the national average.
Plus, for those who are struggling to gather a decent deposit together, the town also has some new build developments with plenty of “help to buy” schemes available.
Owning a home in Royston even on a limited budget, may not be a dream after all.
Popular locations include homes sitting close to Therfield Heath, to the west of the town and some of the smaller villages surrounding Royston such as Kneesworth and Barley.
The rental market right across the UK has seen a huge shift over the past few years.
Because of the problems prospective buyers face renting a home has never been so popular and the only option for a great number of people.
So, what can you expect from the lettings market in Royston?
Sadly, rentals are in short supply across the town and when they come onto the market they are let very quickly, particularly family-sized properties.
It is a good idea to pop into the local estate agents and get your name on their waiting list.
You can set up alerts so that you are the first to know about what is new to the market. First in gives you a higher chance of securing the let.
Ensure your finances are in order and that you can afford the deposit.
It will just be a matter of time before you manage to bag a nice rental home.
