Why We Like Moving In Islington

Whichever part of Islington you are planning to move to, there is something to be said for it. The charming residential area of Barnsbury, for instance, offers convenient access to the City of London and the West End as well as being close to King’s Cross, of course. Then there are the many pubs and music venues that make up the Angel. In Highbury, the impressive Emirates Stadium is one of the big landmarks, a superb sight for all fans of Arsenal Football Club.

Moving to Islington also makes sense if you want to make use of public transport to get around. There are numerous bus routes that criss-cross the borough as well as plenty of rail services. The overground network can be accessed via the stations at Upper Holloway and the Caledonian Road, for example. Hop on a Victoria Line service on the tube from Highbury & Islington or take the Northern Line from Angel or Archway. The Piccadilly Line also has multiple stops in the borough.

Islington also has some great shops, not just the chain stores but independent retail outlets. Head to the area around Charlton Place or Islington Green for some of the best ones. Overall, we like Islington because:

  • It has great restaurants and bars
  • There are cinemas, music venues and theatres all within the locale
  • It has a true sense of community in each corner of the borough

Flat Pack Assembly Islington

As a business that handles many flat and house removals in Islington, we sometimes need to take flat pack furniture apart only to reassemble it for our clients. This means we know what we are doing with flat packs. Now it is possible to book our Islington flat pack assembly services even if you are not moving. Simply make your purchase and then ask us to come around and do the flat pack assembly job for you. At Volition Removals, we take the hassle out of buying self-assembly furniture!

Book Your Parking in Advance

Parking restrictions come into force in nearly every residential street in Islington. The borough is well-known for its residential parking bays and it may not always be possible to guarantee a spot close to your home for loading or unloading. Without somewhere close by to park, the length of your move can increase dramatically, pushing the price up. That’s why we recommend booking a parking bay suspension with the council in advance of your move.

Islington Removals FAQs

What’s the cheapest way of relocating in Islington?

We charge a low rate for clients who book and Islington man and van service. One man and a van in Islington costs £45 per hour plus VAT. If you can cope with just one man, then this will suffice. Most two bedroom properties will need two men and a van so that the job does not overrun, however. At Volition Removals, the competitive fee for this is £60 per hour plus VAT for weekday bookings.

Should I book temporary storage prior to my Islington removal service?

This depends on your personal circumstances. If you are downsizing, then placing items you will not immediately require makes sense so you avoid unnecessary clutter. If you are splitting up with your partner, then a storage facility will often make sense so you can go through your belongings later, once you have had a chance to find your feet.

Should a removal service in Islington include insurance?

Yes it should. If you hire a van and attempt to do your move yourself, then you won’t have public liability insurance. Commonly, your household insurance won’t cover breakages or theft during a move, either. With Volition Removals, this cover comes as standard.

Volition Removals sounds perfect for Islington removals but is it as good as it sounds?

We are the ideal removals company to choose for any Islington move. However, you do not have to take our word for it. Peruse our many glowing testimonials and online reviews and we think you’ll find that they tell their own story.

What should I do the morning of my Islington move?

Make sure the parking bay you have suspended is clear and contact the council if not. Unplug electrical items and give your fridge a chance to defrost. Disconnect plumbed-in appliances like washing machines and mark up your moving boxes with the rooms you will want them placed in when you arrive at your new home.
