Moving to South Wales

Moving to South Wales

Anyone who has travelled around South Wales will know how diverse the region is. From the busy life of Cardiff, Newport and Swansea to the relaxing towns in the Rhondda, South Wales offers an ideal living environment for everyone.

Busy towns like Ammanford in South-West Wales serve as both a hub for local villages and a prime location for commuting to Swansea and Llanelli. Ammanford is only a few miles from the Brecon Beacons National Park, but you won’t have to travel that far to appreciate the area’s beauty. The tree-lined Amman River runs through the town and together with the smaller River Loughor helps the town green and fresh.

Bridgend sits south of the M4, between Swansea and Cardiff. With a large industrial estate and a prime location, its many businesses serve both of the major cities as well as other large towns such as Barry and Cowbridge. With some history of coal mining and ironworks, Bridgend developed into an agricultural market town and later into a commercial hub.

If you are planning to move to South Wales from further afield, it may be worth asking a South Wales removals company for a quote. Removals companies often travel back to their depot empty, which means if you have a small load, the company may offer a cheaper price in return for some flexibility on the time and date of collection.

The most professional removers invest in training and equipment to ensure the customers goods are appropriately protected. They provide insurance, written quotes and additional services such as packing fragile items and antiques.

Generally, a professional removals company will be in a trade association, like AIM, which insists they work to a Code of Practice to ensure the customer receives a high standard of service.

The Association of Independent Movers has members all over the UK, most of which provide short and long distance house removals, international moves and a range of related services, such as export wrapping, commercial moves and overseas shipping.

COVID-19 Statement

Although there is no rule to prevent them from doing so, not all removals businesses are working during the Coronavirus measures advised by the Government.

Those that are working have been provided with clear guidelines by the Government and supported by AIM, with safe working procedures, specific documents and frequent information updates.

Removals firms

Removal firms are able to operate and should follow the latest government guidance on safer working. Where moves are carried out, social distancing should be followed.
Companies should ensure employees understand how to operate safely and communicate this to customers.

  • Removers should contact the household in advance to check that no member of the household is showing symptoms of coronavirus or self-isolating. If they are, works should be delayed.
  • They should also encourage households to ensure all internal doors are open and surfaces and possessions have been cleaned with household cleaning products prior to them entering the property.
  • No work should be carried out by a person who has coronavirus symptoms, however mild.
  • Removers should wash their hands on entering the property using separate towels of paper towels which need to be washed or disposed of safely after use.
  • Removers should seek to minimise contact with homeowners and remain 2 metres apart from householders at all times.
  • Removers should implement a buddy system and ensure that the same people work together when moving bulky items and furniture.
  • Removers should bring their own refreshments but you should ensure they have access to hand washing facilities, using separate towels or paper towels if possible,
    which should be washed or disposed of safely afterwards.
