What is a ‘long carry’?

How do I know if I have one where I’m moving to? Do I get charged for a long carry?
‘Long carry’ is a term that is used when there is an unusually long distance from the back door of the removal vehicle and the doorstep of the property (typically greater than 75 ft / 23 metres). This typically incurs an extra charge from the removal company. If you think that your removal might fall into this category, check when asking for a quote.

Turned up on time, amazingly friendly, courteous and very hardworking. They had a very long day moving us from Birmingham to Brighton. Very fair price.
