Small and large removals to Northern Ireland – volume options
If you are interested in moving to Northern Ireland, first you need to consider the volume you intend to remove. There are numerous volume options to choose from if you look for a cheap home removal. Our options start from 5 cubic metres, through the full 15 cubic metre Luton van option, to full big trucks, which can contain up to 30 cubic metres of goods. Therefore, everyone will find the option that meets their requirements.
Please remember, that there are certain weight limits within each volume option. Consequently, while choosing one of the options we offer, you need to consider the total weight of your load. The standard volume options and the accompanying weight limits look as follows:
- 5 cubic metres – up to 300 kg or 660 pounds – small, part-load removal,
- 10 cubic metres – up to 600 kg or 1320 pounds – small, part-load removal,
- 15 cubic metres – up to 1200 kg or 2650 pounds – large removal,
- 30 cubic metres – up to 2400 kg or 5290 pounds – large removal.
What is more, there may be some distinctions regarding the delivery time between the volume options. Our small removal options, namely 5 and 10 cubic metres, are part load options, therefore, your removal will be combined with someone else’s. In these options, it may take a bit longer before your goods arrive in Northern Ireland. On the other hand, our “full van” options (15m3 and 30m3) are dedicated options, so the van will go straight to your final address, shortening the overall time of shipping to Northern Ireland. Regardless of the volume, our European removals are very swift, so should you need a packing service or storage facilities, please consider other removals companies.

Removals from England to Northern Ireland
Northern Ireland was created in 1921 when the British government split Ireland into two autonomous territories. It comprises six of the nine counties of Ulster (one of the four ancient Irish provinces), with the remaining three (Monaghan, Cavan and Donegal) staying in what is now the modern-day Republic of Ireland. For this reason, Ulster is a popular colloquial alternative name for Northern Ireland, even if it is not in the strictest sense historically accurate.
The weather in Northern Ireland is notoriously unpredictable, so you can experience all kinds of weather conditions within an hour. Moreover, similarly to England, the weather is a common topic of conversation.
Northern Ireland does not have any official language, although English is universally understood. You may also encounter Irish and Ulster Scots. Although Northern Ireland is a small country, accents and dialects differ considerably throughout the country and even foreigners fluent in English may find it hard to understand people with certain accents. However, most Northern Irish people will slow down and speak more clearly if they think you are having a hard time understanding them.
