Packing and Unpacking Service

We will come to your current property to pack and organise your belongings. Upon arrival at your new property we can then unpack your most important items first (such as medical and assistance items), arranging them safely in your new home, meaning they can be easily accessed if required.

Help and Advice

Our specialist surveyors have many years experience in retirement moving, working with some of the countries largest retirement property building companies. In retirement moving, planning and organisation is essential due to the complications that can arise when moving in later life. Our experienced crews ensure a stress-free relocation.

Downsizing / Auctioneers / Charity / Disposal

Often, moving into a retirement property means downsizing, and with this can come the difficult task of deciding on items and possessions that you no longer need, or that take up too much space in your new home. We can help you arrange independent auctioneers to visit and value your items, ensuring you get the very best price. We can take items to local charities or simply dispose of them, whatever suits your needs and wishes. There will be circumstances where we are not permitted or licensed to carry particular items so where necessary we can arrange and fill skips or refuse vehicles at discounted rates. We act on behalf of individual clients, solicitors and local authorities. The house clearance procedure can be tricky but our aim at Mercia Movers is to make this as stress free and straightforward as possible. We undertake all work from start to finish and can even arrange a cleaning service to ensure that all properties are left clean and tidy.

Dismantling and Reassembling

For retirement moves, beds, chairs, tables and two-piece display units are all covered in our ‘standard dismantling’ service.  

But you may wish to move wardrobes, cabin beds or larger units. If so, we can include any of these in your removal package, as well as assembling any flat pack items you may have bought to arrive inline with your relocation.

A Move Plan to Suit Your Needs

Most removals are planned with speed in mind. With our Retirement Plus Package we will plan your relocation allowing plenty of time to ensure your day isn’t stressful. Instead, we can look at completing your move over multiple days if required. If you are travelling a long distance to be nearer to loved ones we will take these travelling times into consideration. If you have to stay at your current property the night before when we have already packed most of your items, we will try to keep an area clear so your last memory of your property isn’t piled high with boxes. We can even come back a few days after the move to help you settle once you have your bearings in your new home. 

Every move is different so we aim to offer solutions to any problems we may encounter, helping you rest easier about your move.
