    honestly cant recommend these guys another asif moving with a teething 8 month old isnt bad enough after only moving 6 months prior and having a disaster with the previous movers i was so anxious to move again especially from york to oxfordshire in a bungalow we havent even seen yet. the morning of the move i was in tears the price seemed to good to be true compared to other quotes so was worried about van size. the van turned up and the moment i met the two movers my nerves was put to rest, they was friendly and was really lovely and mae my little boy giggle away. they managed to pack eveything up quckly and was so helpfull with the last minn packing i had to do (joys of having a baby) they set off unfortunetly due to traffic we ended up being delayed to the property luckily they was able to get access to the bungalow and started unloading when we got there they was all done and the bungalow was all set up sofa set up perfect and bed put in bedroom with boxes put in rooms needed too to.. meant i could come in and sit down without being in a moving car and let my little boy play around after such a log journey. im so upset that we had to move from york after finding these guys but if we ever need something delivered from near york will definitely use again. honestly cant recommend these guys enough 5/5 xx

    If we had spent thousands of pounds on a big name removal company we would not have had better service! Honestly, I cannot recommend Jorvik enough.
    Melissa gave us a call the day before the move to double-check all the details.
    On the day we had Melvyn & Daniel who just got on and emptied the house they were very friendly and efficient and packed all our items with the upmost care !
    We will definitely be recommending to friends & family.
    Many Thanks once again Jorvik

    We had to book a removals service with 4 days notice, due to a sudden change of completion date. From when we booked through to the removal men leaving, it was the least stressful part of the whole process. They arrived at the agreed time and whizzed around the house incredibly fast and packed my entire house up in 2 hours! They were very helpful, funny and kind. They were able to advise me what was happening next, as my solicitor or estate agent didn't bother to explain this to me. At the other end they took things to the correct rooms quickly and everything was looked after carefully. I have never moved house before, so have nothing to compare to, but this was brilliant! I would definitely recommend to any friends moving! Thank you!

Frequently Asked Questions

If you’ve any questions for us, this is the place to find the answer. And if it’s not covered here, feel free to pick up the phone and call us…

How much will my removal cost?

There are many factors that are taken into consideration when calculating the price, distance, size of vehicle, access and packing are just some of the obvious ones. Always try to get your property viewed to avoid any doubts, getting a quote over the phone does work but is not as reliable as a survey. We only give quotations, not estimates. Try to avoid being given estimates by other companies as their final bill may be larger than you expected.

What do removal costs include?

Jorvik removals prices are tailored to your needs. Our basic service supplies you with a removal van with a crew and includes travelling and goods in transit insurance, but you may choose extra services such as packing and storage too.

How long will my removal take?

There are several factors that affect the time it takes to complete a removal. The obvious ones are the number of goods and the distance they are moving. Some may be less obvious but are just as important. Simple things like having to park ten feet further from your house due to parked cars can severely change the time it takes to load or unload. Try to inform us of anything that may happen or be different on the day of your removal, even if it does not seem that important and the main hold up on removals day is receiving the keys to your new property from your agent so for small moves its sometimes better to start a little later if your not expecting to get the keys until 12pm-1pm.Usually a two bedroom house should take 4-5 hrs with no hold ups but if you give us a call we can advise you how long your move will take.

Can I move at the Weekend?

We are able to carry out your removal at any time that is convenient for you. We don’t charge any extra for saturdays but different days and times may carry a premium to reflect the extra cost of staff.

What size of van will I get?

The size of the van is decided by our staff based on a survey of your home. It is our responsibility to get this right. Always use a company with experience and a good reputation to ensure that they will. If a survey has not been carried out, we will use the information that you have provided us with to calculate the size of van required. As long as you have been honest then it will still be our responsibility to get it right.

Can I do my own packing?

Yes is the simple answer. If you do your own packing, use boxes that are a suitable size and strength. Make sure you seal all your boxes as well, open top boxes like banana boxes make it impossible to safely stack your goods in the van. Always find out how packing your own boxes affects your insurance, most companies will only recognise damages if the box has been dropped or crushed. If you are unsure or struggling to get suitable boxes, we can supply you with what you need.

Do you dismantle and reassemble my furniture?

Unless this was agreed in the quote, all items needing dismantled are expected to be done and ready to move before the we arrive. If agreed in the quote, our staff will carry out the dismantling and reassembly as agreed. It is essential that you say what is required at the quotation stage to allow for the necessary time and equipment to be provided.

How do I pay for my removal?

Once you have accepted our Quote, we require full payment before or on the morning of your removal. This can be paid via cheque, debit or credit card and BACS.

How do I move house with a dog/cat?

its best to lock your pet in a single room with the least amount of items to move and clearly label the door with a sticker “Do Not Open’ then when most of the move is complete you can move into another empty room with your pet while the removals team move the last few items from the last room before relocating to your new property.

Are my goods insured?

Yes, your goods will be covered by insurance during your removal and during storage. During your removal, your goods will be insured up to £50,000 per van and during storage if you require insurance you can aquire this through as we are a partner so just look for our dropdown link  always read in north yorkshire. Always view the full details of insurance and the terms and conditions.

What time will the van arrive?

Generally, our staff start work between six and eight o’clock in the morning. We aim to be at your address between 8:30 am and 9:00 am in the morning. If you are moving long distance we will liaise with you and give you an estimated time of arrival. Sometimes, for many reasons we can be delayed, however, we will always arrive.
