We used Chess. Britannia at this end and they were amazing!! Don’t get your insurance through them though. We used Letton Percival. I think they are mentioned on here somewhere. Good luck! 

Allied Pickford stated it would be beneficial to take out their insurance & storage, because it will work out cheaper!!! Belongings are going into storage until I find somewhere to live. The rep said this will ensure everything remains covered until items are delivered to an address!!! Finding the right removals has been my biggest challenge.

It may well be cheaper but if you need to claim, you may regret it!

If things will be in storage for some time, it’s better to get them to deliver it to a self storage place, as then you’ll be able to visit and take bits and pieces as you need then. More expensive but more practical

Received TOR ref number after 3 separate emails because their system could not cope with too many attachments in one email 😂

Yeah that file size for attachments still seems to be an issue. 🙄

Well that’s another thing done though. 👍

Well the autumn and winter better hurry up - 17c today 

A bit of wind today - still as anything over the last few days 

Pretty pleasant - some lovely colours 

If winter can wait just until after I arrive back, this will give me time to get a new wardrobe of clothes 😂

They might haggle about claims though! If I remember correctly our belongings were insured for 60 days after they went into storage as we didn’t know where we were ending up at that time.
