Coronavirus Covid-19

With great regret we are cancelling all household removals operations which require more than one person to work at close quarters. We are available to move items which only require a one man lift in an open environment. On Sunday 22nd March the prime minister, Borris Johnson, repeated scientific advice "you have to stay 2 meters apart, you have to follow social distancing advice". We are unable to perform 2-man lifts in a domestic environment and comply with this. We look foreward to a future where this situation no longer persists and wish you all the best.

Thorough professional packing not only safeguards your treasured possessions but also relieves so much stress from moving day. Things go much more smoothly when all your smaller items are packed into regular sized, high quality twin walled cartons.

We're very proud of our packing services. Please ask about options - Full Packing, Fragile Packing or just packing of specific items. Our conscientious team will make light work of your packing with skill and experience.

If you want to pack yourself we'll deliver our quality packing materials - so long as your're in our area.

Storage

We offer long term and short term secure storage to meet your requirements and ensure the safety of your possessions. We've been storing for customers throughout Kent since 2002. Please get in touch if you have any questions about storing your belongings.

We use traditional removals warehouse containers to store your belongings in Kent. They are an industry standard 5' by 7' by 7.5' tall - this is equivalent to a 35 square foot room in a self store centre. We think we're better value than self store, especially over the medium and long term. You can rent these for £14/week all inclusive. This includes indemnity insurance for goods in storage.

Gravesend Relocation Guide

Gravesend - Gravesham

Moving to Gravesend and don’t know the area? Hopefully this guide will help. The town of Gravesend was recorded in the doomsday book as “Gravesham” and in 1974 the Borough of Gravesham was formed, their website covers parking, rubbish collection and much more. For larger items of waste RS Skips are nearby.

Gravesend Schools

Kent County Council is the place to get information about local schools. KentLive.news ran an article in January 2018 listing Ofsted reports for local primary schools. As well as Cobham Hall independent school for girls, Gravesend boasts two Grammar schools which compare favourably amongst the town’s secondary schools as shown in the government’s school comparison website.

Gravesend Property

 Rightmove, quoting the land registry, say that Gravesend house prices went up 9% to an average of £285,000. After talking to various Gravesend Removals customers we think that further rises are due so long as Great Britain moves away from political uncertainty. Local estate agents, Robinson Jackson, Wards and also M&M’s will be a greater authority on this, if they disagree please let us know!

Gravesend  Transport Links

 Gravesend has excellent transport links, from Gravesend railway station there is a high speed link (23 minutes) to St.Pancras. Also 4 trains an hour to London Charing Cross or in the opposite direction to Strood, Rochester & Sittingbourne with good connections to Ramsgate,Canterbury, Maidstone & Dover. Ebbsfleet International is on the doorstep with multiple high speed services between London St.Pancras, Paris & Brussels. Gravesham is linked well via the A2 to the motorway network. It’s a busy area for road traffic, close to the M25 and Dartford Crossing which is notorious for delays.

Gravesend - Eating Out

The town has a thriving Sikh community so for dining out you’re in Kent’s curry capital. Not least Chattorey, Shapla, Ghandi and the Tufail amongst many others. Other cosmopolitan recommendations include the Julias Cesar Restaurant, RM Restaurant and Pricilla’s Pantry. By the historic pier is The Three Daw’s, an excellent place to enjoy some wine or beer and watch the river go by. There are plenty of Gastro-Pubs in the surrounding villages including the Rose & Crown at Shorne, The Cricketers at Meopham and also the Leather Bottle at Cobham - which also does accomodation.

Gravesend Accommodation

The hotel with the most convienient location for the A2 is the Travelodge but the Premier Inn Gravesend Central,  the  Best Western Manor and the Premier Inn Gravesend Singlewell are all handy for the A2 Trunk road. A few miles away is The Inn on the Lake which is also on the A2 but less central to Gravesend. For the railway station and town centre the Overcliffe Hotel and The Jolly Drayman are more conveniently situated.

Gravesend Recreation

For recreation there’s not only the local leisure centre but also the Cyclopark. This is a great local facility which caters for all variations of cycling as well as skateboarding with a shop, cafe and kids play area. Shorne Woods Country Park is well appointed and will satisfy all family who want a bit of the great outdoors. There’s plenty going on in and around Gravesend take a look at visitgravesend.co.uk and also discovergravesham.co.uk. to find out more. The town centre is vibrant and boasts a rejuvinated Borough Market but if Gravesend fails to fulfill your need to shop - Bluewater Shopping and leisure destination is on your doorstep!
