Moving is already stressful. Moving to another country, especially overseas, can be a, overwhelming, daunting task. How do you ship your stuff? What kind of paperwork do you need? Who do you talk to? The questions, and the anxiety, can pile up.
When we took on moving the Eden Gallery, we understood what a precious task we were signing up for. A gallery is a complicated project, with good reason. 95% of the items we were moving were works of art: fragile, expensive, and in many cases, irreplaceable.

How exciting that you are considering a move to Merton. Dumond Moving and Storage would like to help you decide on the best schools for your children, but first, let's take a look at the lovely area you are investigating.
Did you know that Merton Park is one of the earliest garden suburbs of London, with some of the first houses being built in the 1870s? The exceptional John Innes developed the area, planting gracious avenues of chestnut and plane trees and dividing properties with characteristic holly hedges. He built attractive houses along roads such as Mostyn, Dorset and Sheridan, which are still highly desirable (roads) today.
