Case Study 3

Comment: Nice, wide staircase, no bannister rail. Plenty of space at the top and bottom and no tight corners. There is no such thing as an easy stairjob but this one is certainly achievable. Notice the 2nd photo shows a turning point leading to a 2nd, smaller flight. The large flat, turning area is idea to allow space to prepare the piano to go up the 2nd flight.
Jon’s U1 verdict: Yes, definitely
Jon’s U3 verdict: Yes, definitely
Cost for this job: £120 for the 1st flight. £60 for the 2nd flight. Total cost £180

U1 verdict: Yes, definitely
U3 verdict: Yes, definitely
Cost for this job: £120

Case Study 5

Comment: Very tricky. Lots of exposed metalwork which could cause damage. Potential also to be very slippery on a wet day. The tight, turning corners look very tricky. This job is pending and will be viewed in person by the movers before the job is attempted.
U1 verdict: TBC
U3 verdict: TBC
Cost for this job: £120 for the 1st flight. £60 for the 2nd flight. Total £180

U1 verdict: Fail
U3 verdict: Fail
Cost for this job: n/a
