When should we start planning our move?

You should ideally start to plan your move as soon as you know you are going to be moving. Whether it is weeks or even months before your move date, the more preparation time you give yourself the smoother the whole process will be. For more information on moving time scales please visit our Moving Guide page.

How much will it cost for our relocation?

Every move is different so it is always best for a move coordinator to visit your home to assess
your individual requirements and give you an accurate move quotation. Factors to consider for any
move include access, item size and quantity, number of floors, size of lorry, number of staff required etc. If you wish to discuss your move with a member of the Army Ants team please contact us and we will be happy to help.

You can also complete the Free Online Quotation form to get an initial estimate for your move prior
to the on site survey.

What areas do you cover?

We are based in Preston but we cover the whole of the United Kingdom, Europe and Worldwide. With easy access to the M6, M60, M62 motorways we are ideally placed for moves to and from
any location.

When do we need to book Army Ants for the move?

As soon as possible! Although we will always try to accommodate customers at short notice our
diary gets booked up very quickly. We work on a first come first served basis so the earlier you
contact us the better chance you have of booking us for the actual date you want to move.
