You may be a seasoned and highly organised home mover, familiar with the challenges of relocating your family and all their possessions around the world every few years. Perhaps you have spent decades assembling a large home filled with prized possessions and precious memories, and now feel one more relocation is required to ensure a comfortable retirement?
Cadogan Tate has been helping individuals and families move home locally, around the UK and internationally, for more than 40 years. Over 90% of our home moving assignments come from repeat business and recommendations.
It’s not simply that we have in place all of the expertise and resources required to help you pack up, remove your possessions from your current home, transport them and store them as necessary and then help you unpack them into your new home.
We know and understand the experience, and how stressful it can be; and we do everything that can possibly be done to make your move easy for you.
A smooth and trouble free home move is dependent largely on the quality of the advance planning that goes into it. Despite our decades of experience in moving customers around the world, we take nothing at all for granted, planning both physical move and the accompanying administration down to the last detail.
Your move begins with a pre-move survey carried out by one of our experienced home move Surveyors. Friendly and helpful, our Surveyors have worked on some of the world’s most complicated residential moves. They review the contents of your home and listen carefully to your needs and concerns, taking detailed notes about your required timings and particularly important or fragile items. They will then advise on packing and unpacking options.
Once the Surveyor has understood your requirements in detail, they will prepare a detailed Move Plan and brief this back to your personal Move Co-Ordinator. The Move Plans cover every aspect and every item involved in your move, including;
If specialist experts are called for, for example to remove and pack chandeliers or supervise the taking down, transportation and rehanging of valuable paintings, your Move Co-Ordinator will enlist the appropriate Cadogan Tate specialists.
On the day of the move itself, all of this planning pays dividends. The crew arrives on time, fully briefed, and packs swiftly and skilfully. You will find them considerate and professional at all times.
Our Move Co-Ordinators have unsurpassed experience in helping customers through the most complicated of moves. Yours will help and advise throughout, ensuring at our end that you are assigned the most appropriate crews and vehicles and that precisely the required packing materials are available as necessary.
We audit customers’ moves regularly, as part of our commitment to the various ISO standards we hold, to ensure that the quality of both the planning and the ensuing move never falters.

Cadogan Tate’s characteristic attention to detail ensures the safe packing and transportation of your possessions.
We do not entrust the packing or unpacking of your possessions to just anyone.
Our moving and storage teams are all thoroughly trained at our dedicated training centre, learning best practices that we have refined over 40 years of home moves.
Although we pack quickly and efficiently, we take great care and pay consummate attention to detail throughout.
We know that the things that are personally important to you may not always be the most valuable items, and so you can trust us to pack and move everything from your state-of-the-art sound system, antique furniture and glassware and fragile china to your well worn but well-loved teddy bear.
We offer a range of professional packing and unpacking options, in which you should be able to find one that suits both your needs and your budget.
If none of these standard options fully meets your requirements, we will be pleased to tailor a suitable unpack for you.
As Cadogan Tate offer a truly comprehensive moving service, Cadogan Tate offers a wide variety of specialist services which might otherwise prove difficult to arrange.
With our reputation for providing a wealth of removals services, we are regularly asked to move large items requiring the use of a crane and platform. We can arrange a platform, external lift and hoist, and additional lifting equipment where required. We will also organise the closure or partial closure of the road with the appropriate authorities (wherever feasible).
We are highly experienced in moving large and awkwardly shaped items of all kinds, and have a wealth of experience in moving grand pianos, including many fine and vintage instruments. Our professional moving teams have been trained in the specialist techniques required for packing and handling pianos. We will organise any suitable lifting equipment required and, if necessary, can even arrange for the dismantling and reinstatement of obstructions to enable an instrument to be moved.
