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. Some 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.
Convenience is key when it comes to a town’s retail provision.
You may have a busy job and possibly family who depend on you for assistance. The last thing you want is to have to drive for miles to the nearest decent shopping area.
Thankfully, Rushden manages to cover everything you need without travelling far.
Opened in July 2017, a £140 million out-of-town leisure and shopping centre known as Rushden Lakes Shopping Centre was completed.
The development is easy to access, situated just off the A45.
It has become a real social hub for the community. A place where everyday essentials meet fashion favourites. All of this is combined with the great outdoors and lots of delicious places to eat, drink and relax.
To discover exactly what is available at this large shopping mall, follow the link above to their website for a list of shops, restaurants and cafes.
Across the road from Rushden Lakes is a large Lidl store and a Waitrose supermarket. Further not the centre of town you will find an Asda Superstore. More than enough for your grocery shop.
There are DIY stores dotted over town including Wicks, B&Q and Screwfix to name a few. Your renovation projects will definitely not suffer.
There is no doubt that for anyone living in or near Rushden, finding decent places to shop is something you won’t have to worry about.
Rushden’s growth has resulted from a number of industries, including lacemaking and farming, and especially shoemaking and associated trades.
During the mid-1900s there were well over 100 boot and shoe factories in the town but today there are only four shoemaking companies left.
Today, as with many towns in England, industry in the town is varied, and mostly situated in out-of-town industrial estates.
As Rushden Park has increased in popularity, the opportunity for work within the retail sector has boomed.
New housing estates and infrastructure changes have also led to tradespeople lookin for work within the construction industry and related trades.
Some residents have found work in other larger towns and cities in the region.
With Bedford and Northampton being so close to Rushden these locations support many Rushden commuters.
Within a radius of 10 miles, Indeed (the online recruitment company) is advertising hundreds of jobs. All you need to do is download your CV and start applying.
18 state run schools sit within a two-mile radius of the town.
Together they combine to provide Rushden with a diverse education system across all age groups.
Rushden Academy senior school is also an Ofsted rated “good” school plus it has a sixth form.
Last inspected as recently as 2022, their report noted that “Pupils show positive attitudes to learning. They receive a good quality of education. Pupils enjoy a range of extra-curricular activities”.
There is one private school (a co-education day school) which is within reach of the town.
Wellingborough School an all-through school caters for children aged 3-19 years.
For Post 16 education, students have a good choice of colleges.
Transport connections are also a vital consideration for anyone moving. This is particularly so if you are employed or have children attending college or schools outside the town.
Rushden town is sandwiched between the main A6 and A45.
The A6 has connections to Kettering (Northbound) and Bedford and Luton (Southbound).
Whilst the A45 connects Rushden to the East coast as well as Northampton and the M1 motorway westbound.
Unfortunately, the closest rail station is in Wellingborough, between 3-5 miles away, depending on where in the town you reside.
Several local bus routes ensure that Rushden is accessible in and out by public transport.
The main bus provider is Stagecoach

After you have unpacked all your boxes it is time to concentrate on things outside the home.
Important jobs such as connecting your home to broadband services, signing up for utilities and registering for council tax cannot wait. Registering with a new doctor is another service you won’t want to delay.
As Rushden is located in the County of Northamptonshire and falls within the administrative boundary of East Northamptonshire Council, this is the best place to start.
From the council website, you can deal with most practicalities of life.
For anything else, perhaps the best way to find out local information is by chatting with neighbours or visiting your local post office.
Also, Rushden Town Council has tons of information about the area.
Issues such as open spaces and parks, medical centres, hospitals, and essential services are all contained within the town council website.

Within a mile of the town, there are several hundred properties on the market, which means there is plenty of choice for buyers.
The town’s terraced homes are always in demand or alternatively, properties sitting on the outskirts of Rushden complete with rural views are also highly desirable.
Statistics are consistently revealing that the way we live in the UK is shifting. There is a definite bias towards renting a home against purchasing one.
With affordability being cited as the biggest reason for not owing a home, rentals have never been in such demand.
According to BuyAssociation, research states that by 2039, renting will overtake home ownership as the most popular form of housing with 50.7% of the population living in rental properties.
If you are going to rent a home in Rushden, unfortunately, the choice is rather limited.
