Thinking about moving?

We discover how M.J. Christophers & Son can help with your move.

If you’re among the many looking to make a lifestyle change in the wake of the pandemic, be that moving overseas or relocating here in the Duchy, then there is a business that’s been tried and trusted for more than 45 years.

Offering removals and containerised storage throughout the county – to both domestic and commercial clients – the M.J. Christophers & Son service also extends to Europe and around the world. What really sets the team apart, however, is their commitment to care on each and every removal, having succeeded over three generations by offering excellent value and second-to-none customer service. In short, your home and belongings could not be in safer hands.

In 2019, company owner, Mike decided it was time to update their online presence, and so set about having a brand-new website developed. The goal? To help make your move, whatever the scale, as straight forward as possible. The website presents all the information you need, along with answers to the most frequently asked questions, in a concise and easy-to-manage format.

The first tab on the website you’re likely to click is ‘Moving to Cornwall’. There, not only will you find all the details you need on how to apply for a quote, you’ll also see a steady stream of excellent customer reviews. One such testimonial commends the “fantastic service from start to finish”, while another details how Mike and co. were able to “accommodate our move at very short notice” and explains that they were “professional and efficient from the moment we had contact with them”.

Moving home is, without doubt, one of life’s most stressful experiences, so it’s reassuring to know that M.J. Christophers are there to help. And not just with the move from ‘a’ to ‘b’, either! As you move out of your old home, the transition period can often leave you needing to store your entire family’s belongings before being handed the keys to your new abode. While this may seem like a logistical nightmare, you’ll soon see – by clicking through to the ‘Storage’ page of the website – that the team can take care of that for you too. Based on either a long- or short-term basis, the team will load your furniture and goods into an empty container at your home, before storing it at their facilities, where the most up-to-date security systems are in place – including smoke detectors and CCTV – to keep your belongings safe and sound.

Alternatively, if you’re thinking about moving overseas, you’ll no doubt be feeling the pressure of what is, unquestionably, a very daunting task. But fear not; simply click on the ‘Overseas Removals’ tab and allow the page to guide you through the process. It doesn’t matter whether you’re moving a single item, or the entire contents of your home, either, because M.J. Christophers & Son have a network of agents around the world who work to their same exacting standards. This means they can arrange all removal documentation and offer full liability cover, while at the same time undertaking quality export packing by professionally trained staff, ensuring your items are well protected during their journey.

Wherever you’re moving, and whatever you’re taking with you, one of the biggest tasks is almost always packing. To help, M.J. Christophers & Son offer a full or part packing service. Alternatively, you can apply for a free starter pack, which includes quality packing materials that are designed to meet your every need and ensure your most prized possessions are kept safe and secure in transit.

Finally, as if all of that isn’t enough, you can also find a selection of downloadable documents on the website, designed to help get your move underway. These include a ‘Helpful Hints and Tips on Moving Home’ sheet, as well as a ‘Moving Check List’, helping you to plan your move weeks in advance. And therein lies the ethos behind this exemplary Cornish firm; whether you’re moving to or from Cornwall, be that within the UK or around the world, the team strives to make one of life’s most difficult experiences as stress-free and seamless as possible. And with a website arming you with all the information you’re likely to need, in addition to a host of first-class reviews from countless happy customers, it almost goes without saying that M.J. Christophers & Son come highly recommended.
