Frequently Asked Questions

Have a Question?

We want to make sure that your experience with our company is the best it can be, so if you ever have any questions or concerns don’t hesitate! You should feel free pick up the phone and call us because we are always available for help.

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 us 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. The main hold up on removals day is often receiving the keys to your new property from your agent. For small moves, it's sometimes better to start a little later if you aren't 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 van will I get?
The size of the van is decided by our staff based on a survey of your home. It is the movers' responsibility to get this right, so always use a company with experience and a good reputation to ensure the right sized vehicle is used. If a survey has not been carried out, we will use the information that you have provided us with to calculate the size of the van required. As long as you have been honest about the volume of possessions to be moved, 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 to be dismantled are expected to be done and ready to move before 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?
Upon accepting our quote, we require a 25% deposit at the time of booking and the remainder 10 days before your removal date. Payment can be made by debit or credit card, or via BACS.
How do I move house with a dog/cat?
It’s 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 the removal. During your removal, your goods will be insured up to £50,000 per van. If you require insurance while your goods are in our storage facilities, you can acquire this through We are a partner of, so just look for our dropdown link 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.
