Stamp Duty Extension

The ‘New’ Stamp Duty Holiday Explained

The stamp duty holiday is now over in its original form. It was originally due to run until March 31st, but was extended to the end of June. Under the stamp duty holiday, buyers did not have to pay tax on houses worth up to £500,000. The idea was to boost a flagging property market.

And the holiday has had the desired effect, according to experts. But has the holiday really finished? Did you know there is effectively a fresh stamp duty holiday extension

The Hottest Locations For New Beginnings

New beginnings have become increasingly popular during the pandemic and relocations and long distance moves are now a trend. The lockdowns and ‘stay at home’ orders have forced many of us to reassess what we really want and what best suits their new lifestyle.

One of the most common reasons for escaping the city or moving is working arrangements. And some of us don’t feel safe in cities anymore, want to be nearer friends and family or want more open space.

Booked CBS Removals for a house move. Got a very competitive online quote which was followed up with Carolyne who was lovely and so helpful with all of my questions, especially when we hadn’t got our completion date. They were very flexible with accommodating the date we needed. Carolyne gave me a call the day before the move to finalise any questions I had and talk me through the following day. The removals men and vans arrived promptly first thing on moving day. Very polite and hard working. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they were always so careful with the furniture, dismantling and reassembling, making sure to not mark walls and floors. They were very patient waiting for our house to complete and then as soon as we were in got to work unloading. They stayed as long as it took to get all the furniture up, and everything where we wanted it. Would definitely recommend CBS removals and will definitely be going back to them for any future moves.

i am so grateful to Caroline & the team at CBS for moving my house contents - they were fantastic - the lads were still moving my stuff in at 7pm & even had to lift a double wardrobe almost above their heads to get it up my stairs - nothing was too much trouble, laughing as we went - day was much more enjoyable because of them. I cannot rate them highly enough.

Fantastic service, polite and respectful staff it’s actually a relief to know when i move I can not worry about a thing. I had a very bad experience with a different local firm ? CBS followed up to get the job done right, and that they did. With half of the men to..I wouldn’t recommend anyone else

They say that moving house is one of the most stressful events in your life - yet with CBS removals at your service this couldnt be further from the truth! Right from making the first phone call to enquire about their removals service, to the actual move itself and then the additional "after care" service the whole team were extremely professional, efficient, courteous and friendly and they all went the extra mile or 10 when one minor item got mislaid - you'd have thought it was an heirloom not a glorified (but much loved) curtain pole - that thankfully has been returned to its grateful owner! The guys worked especially hard on the move day and had enormous trouble getting large furniture through tiny door openings - and this without so much as a moan. But I had to get vats of tea and heaps of sugar to keep them sustained! I could go on - I shouldnt' miss the opportunity to praise the 2 Caroli/y/nes in the office who made it their mission to reunite me with the curtain pole. Such dedication! Can't recommend them highly enough - oh and now I'd like a quote please for some rubbish removal! A breath of fresh air working with them. Best wishes and my thanks to all of you. Keith

We couldn’t have been more happy. CBS removals were friendly, hardworking, professional and swift. Quite a long wait for our keys on a Friday afternoon as well, and all the chaps made sure we were completely happy before leaving and never made us feel under pressure despite the late hour. Highly recommended. Thank you very much CBS

Our moving day was a minor heart attack in the making but CBS were the only part that went well! Paul and his team on the ground and Carolyne back at the office all went above and beyond for us throughout solicitor induced delays and an extremely cold February evening. Highly recommended and will be my first call for any future "men with ven" requirements.

Provided me with a really competitive quote and were super helpful over the phone and offered good flexibility to work around my plans. Due to external factors I didn’t end up using their services but impressed and I will if I’m ever move back to the area!

I didn't actually use CBS but I wanted to speak up for the efficiency of their communication, their openness, and the friendly manner in which they do business. Their quote was competitive, and I'd recommend others look into them.

Called CBS last minute for our removal and could not recommend them highly enough! Great guys and great banter between them all. They went over and above to help us and make the move go as smoothly as possible.

If you need a removal Company I would give CBS a call.

CBS Removals were an excellent firm to work with. Due to working for a pop up brand that travels across the UK, we often dread moving from one location to the next. However, CBS couldn't have been more helpful. They were professional, upbeat and went above and beyond to ensure our stock was moved safely without being damaged. CBS took care of everything from taking apart furniture and rebuilding, loading into their vans and transporting to our new store. We couldn't recommend them enough and will definitely be using them in future!

We discovered this new company quite by chance and I am pleased we did. The pre move service was excellent and the quote was the best we had been given, by around £400.00 . I liked the fact the price quoted was the final quote, other companies stated that the movers would be on overtime after 1700. Anyone who knows the A 303 knows that the chance of a delay is very real. The team turned up on time and were very professional, polite and hard working. Beds had protective covers as did my tables and wooden furniture. They had all the appropriate racks and ties. The move happened over two days due to the distance of moving from London to Devon. They turned up on time the second day to unload and again worked hard . The team had a good camaraderie between themselves and were polite and courteous to us. My wife said she would adopt Niall!!!
When we move again I would use this firm if they are prepared to journey down to Devon. Team were timely professional and more importantly no damages or breakages. Thank you all.
