Near & Far Removals

Moving house can be a stressful experience at the best of times – let alone when our country is emerging from a global pandemic. However, a long established Ruddington based removals company promises to take care of everything for you – with safe, quality service at an affordable price.

Near & Far Removals on Brookside Road is managed by husband and wife team Martyn and Elaine Langridge and has been helping to relocate homeowners and businesses across the East Midlands and the rest of the UK since 2003. The firm now has a staff of around 18 people and a fleet of five vehicles. Following a few weeks when the Government ‘paused’ all removals as part of its stringent nationwide ‘lockdown’, the company is now moving people again – with new safety measures in place.

“We have had to change quite a few things to get back up and running” says Elaine. “All staff are briefed on social distancing to try and keep the 2 metre rule. We obviously cannot do that when lifting heavy items of furniture and have therefore taken measures to put PPE in place. Staff are provided with facemasks, antibac gel, and gloves. All vehicles are equipped with disinfectant cleaning spray, cloths and antibac wipes. At the end of the shifts these vehicles are being cleaned down in readiness for the next job.”

To make life easier for householders, Near & Far can still offer their full pack, part pack or fragile pack service, removal services, dismantling and re-assembling. Whilst COVID-19 restrictions continue, customers are being asked to vacate the property whilst this is being done, if possible – otherwise to keep their distance and stay in other rooms for their own safety and that of the removal team.

Elaine explains: “We understand that everyone’s requirements are different, which is why we tailor our service to meet the individual needs of our customers. A dedicated service, attention to detail and precision planning ensure that your house move is left in the very best hands. Unlike other companies, your move will be the only job your removal team will carry out that day.”  Near & Far can also be booked to relocate individual items – such as pianos and other bulky items or heavy furniture. The company is a member of Checkatrade, AGE UK – also of BAR and Move Assured – to give you peace of mind that you’ll get a quality and reputable service.
