A reply from mt son who uses a Luton for removals.
"All that would fit in my Luton but then all Luton's are different sizes nowadays, even Ford Transit Luton's eg long wheel base,short, overcab room etc. Mines the biggest Transit Luton so if that's what they've got then yes it would fit, depending on who is loading/packing etc!"

Any help?

Check that you have insurance for the contents between houses. You could lose the lot in one small accident.

Thanks all. For peace of mind on the day I have upgraded to to 7.5 ton removal truck+3 men for deassembling,assembling at end. Moving London to Oxford so a fair journey. Can't do 2 trips as left overs won't have any place to go as buyers would probably want to move in.
Cheers all. It's been a great forum and people have been generous with their experience.

What on earth are the ten guitars for? I bet even our FE hasn't got that many. Are your family part of an orchestra? I'm not being funny I am just intrigued.

Good luck with the move, I heard somewhere that moving house is nearly as stressful as getting a divorce.

you could rent out a storage room from one of those storage places, half way of the journey. Unload some the non essential stuff for a day or two then come back and pick it up.
