Questions we’re often asked
Do you only operate in the Islington area?
Islington is one of the key areas that we cover, but it’s not the only area. We have proudly been in business in and around Islington for more than 50 years, and we know the surrounding neighbourhoods like the back of our hands. We operate across Central London, North London and West London, Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire, and Surrey.
We also provide a European house and office removals service that may be ideal for your needs if you’re considering moving farther afield or returning to the UK from abroad. We also have a specialist Fine Art division with offices around the world.
There are a lot of parking restrictions in Islington – might this be a problem?
London is a busy city, and having to cope with parking limitations is a fact of life in the capital. We specialising in working in London (and Islington) for a long enough period of time to be familiar with both its major roads and tiny side streets, and the tricky parking situations.
It may be necessary in some locations to submit an application for parking ban suspensions. Your move manager will work with you to arrange this with Islington Council, who can reserve a spot on the road for particular purposes like moving house. It is important to book your move well in advance as the council tends to need a minimum of 14 days’ notice.

Islington area information
Islington is a popular area for commuters, based close to the City of London and with excellent transport links. It is so popular that houses are in short supply, especially larger family properties. When these rare gems hit the market, they are snapped up quickly by those who want to buy into the community feel of the area. There are new developments cropping up all the time, which contrast with the more typical Georgian and early Victorian homes the area is known for. Residents include media executives, lawyers and finance workers, as well as some well-known celebrities, both past and present. There are many independent shops and restaurants, with new establishments opening all the time.
