Removals in Gloucester
Excellent communication and planning helps us to establish a clear idea of your specific needs and enables us to provide a smooth and worry-free service to our clients.
Before the move, our friendly and knowledgeable team will carry out a pre-move survey and discuss your exact requirements for the move. We will assess the size of the move, the distance, packing requirements and any specialist services such as antique or piano removal.
A large part of the survey is to look at the access of your home and discuss the access at your new property. This way we can make a decision on which removal lorries are required. If access is difficult, we can then arrange one of our smaller vehicles for transhipping.
For difficult or immovable furniture our removal experts can dismantle items such as wardrobes, beds and bookcases, ready for removal and then safely reconstruct them after the move.

Recognised as one of the UK’s top ten historic cities, it is no surprise that Gloucester is rich in history and heritage. Where else in the UK would you find Roman foundations and Victorian Docklands alongside a Norman Cathedral? Whilst much of the town echoes the past, the centre is buzzing with a wide range of restaurants, markets, pubs, shops and museums.
Property in Gloucester
Gloucester has a vast array of properties for both those looking to rent and buy. Gloucester Docks is a collection of new build homes that are designed to complement the adjacent Grade II listed Victorian warehouses. This area is the place to be for city living and the apartments are modern and fresh. However, if city living is not for you, the outskirts present a number of family homes and period properties, with characterful cottages and larger detached homes.
The average price for property in Gloucester is £269,425. Semi-detached homes have been most popular on the market recently, selling for an average price of £287,110. Terraced homes sell for around £211,485 and detached homes sell for around £249,890.
For renters, a one-bedroom flat will cost around £650 per month. A two-bedroom home will cost around £850 per month and a three-bedroom home will cost around £1,100 per month.
Shopping in Gloucester
Being a former Roman city means Gloucester is laid out perfectly for avid shoppers. Getting around the town is quick and easy and the four main shopping streets imaginatively named Northgate, Eastgate, Southgate and Westgate – are all pedestrianised and offer all the usual high street stores that you would expect to find in most cities.
The two local malls, Mall Eastgate and Kings Walk, are both located off of Eastgate Street and are loved by shoppers. The centres also have a number of stalls and independent stands within them, echoing the market town atmosphere of the past.
Just off East Gate Shopping is an all-year-round covered market which, besides being a great place to pick up a bargain, also has stalls selling traditional local produce such as the famous Gloucester sausage. Gloucester Quays boasts a stunning waterside location and has everything you need for a day out, with an outlet shopping centre, multi-screen cinema, bars and restaurants and a museum.
Transport Links Gloucester
Just to the east of Gloucester is the M5, which takes drivers south to Bristol and Exeter and north to Birmingham. The M5 handily connects to the M4 just north of Bristol, providing easy access into south Wales and across the UK into London. The A38 also links Gloucester to nearby Cheltenham, Cirencester, Hereford and Bristol.
Gloucester bus and train station are directly opposite one another which is fantastic for those who need to hop between modes of transport easily.
