We recommend that you give a minimum of 14 days notice, however, City Moves can appreciate that this is not always possible and we are often able to meet your requirements when notice is less than 7 days. Ideally, as soon as you have been given your exchange dates it is always a good idea to confirm these dates with us.

City Moves do not ask for any deposit, all we do is take the payment method from you, on the day of booking you in to our system, as a guarantee. We normally process all payments 24-48 hours before your relocation date and bring all paperwork, invoice & receipts out on the move day. City Moves can accept cash payments on day of move, if previously arranged along with bank transfers (TT) and BACS payments, direct in to our account. Please note that all payments would need to be cleared funds before we carry out your relocation, City Moves will NOT be liable for any costs/charges incurred due to unavailable funds.
