Coronavirus Service Update | Adapting Storage/Moves


Moving house in Edinburgh?

When you choose to move home with Kerr’s, you can be sure of a professional removal company that delivers a reliable and stress-free moving service. Our experienced team have carefully handled house moves from Edinburgh, Central Scotland and across the UK for almost 40 years.

Free No Obligation Survey

Even if you don’t have a definite moving date you can contact us to make an enquiry or arrange a free home survey. Mr. Kerr will visit your home at a convenient time to assess your move, explain the process and answer any questions you may have. The information recorded from your survey will enable our team to plan and organise the perfect move to suit you.


Following your survey we will provide a detailed move plan and quotation with a clear breakdown of all costs, including packing arrangements, secure storage requirements and any optional services designed to assist you before, during and after your move.

Book My Move

To accept your removal quote simply contact us to confirm availability for your moving date. If you have any last minute changes or requests our helpful team will alter your move plan to suit.

Small Moves, Late Bookings and Emergency Removals

There may be circumstances when a home survey is not possible, don’t worry as you can discuss your move over the telephone or use our online estimator form.

Moving Day

On the day of your move our friendly team of movers will arrive prepared and fully briefed. The specialist vehicle assigned to your move will be fully equipped with floor protectors, portable wardrobes, mattress covers, quilted sofa protective covers and other necessary equipment designed to protect your goods with the highest care.

When the vehicle is loaded the team leader will ask you to double check all the rooms to ensure you are happy that every item has been removed. At the delivery address all furniture and effects will be placed in the exact position of the requested rooms and if included in the move plan dismantled furniture will be reassembled, export packaging removed and boxes etc. unpacked.

When the move is complete you will be asked to complete a short customer survey, which allows us to monitor our overall service and maintain standards.

We offer a range of services to assist you in preparing for your move.
