Moving home can be a mixture of fun and hard work. You have all the excitement of the move, with a chance of a fresh start and an opportunity to do and see new things and meet new people. This is the side we like to concentrate on because it’s the reason we do it. If you’re moving into Colliers Wood, or are just moving from one part of it to another, then you have all these things to look forward.
However, no matter where you relocate, you’re going to have to contend with the packing, removal and transportation of all your belongings. It can be a lot to take it when you realise how many possessions you own and how many of these objects, such as settees, wardrobes, and washing machines, are so large and heavy that it can seem impossible to get them all out of your home.

Colliers Wood is in South West London and a part of the London borough of Merton. It is a mostly residential area but has a busy high street in the middle. Its postcode district in W19, the same as Wimbledon’s.
The name of the area comes from a former forest that stood where Warren, Birdhurst Roads and Marlborough reside today. The wood existed up until the 1870s but was eventually emptied to allow for new development. The 12th century Roman ruin, Merton Priory is here and is being considered for World Heritage status. In 1437, Henry VI held his coronation here, being the only English monarch in the last one-thousand years who was not crowned in the Westminster Abbey. Former Archbishop of Canterbury Thomas Beckett and Nicholas Breakspear, the only English man to be ever ordained as Pope (Adrian IV) where educated here. From the 17th century there were several textile mills, most notably the Merton Abbey Mill which now acts a location for numerous businesses and retailers. At the time there were more mills here per mile than anywhere else in the world. The Surrey Iron Railway - the first public railway in the world, passed through the area in the period from 1803 to 1846.
Colliers Wood is home to several open spaces, most notably Wandle Park and Wandle Meadow Nature. The walking and cycle path the Wandle trail passes through the area a does the River Wandle. The first Barclay’s Cycle Superhighway opened here in 2010 linking Southwark Bridge with Colliers Woo.
