Anyone know a REMOVALS company that is good with moving lots of plants? SE London to rural Kent.

Hello - we are moving from SE London (Hither Green/Catford) to rural Kent (Marden/Collier Street), end of July/beginning of Aug.

We have a lot of potted plants/cuttings, etc, to transport (mainly garden plants but also some indoor) - some large, most medium, some small. The smaller pots we'll try to transport ourselves in the car but the other pots & planters will be part of the removals. This will likely take up at least half the container space...

We'll package them up best we can, either in boxes/crates or strapping larger plants together for support but are keen to see if anyone knows of any removal companies who are proven to be very good with the transport of plants. Many mention it in their blurb, including how best to prepare, etc, & so one has to assume there are a number who are at least comfortable with plant transportation, but has anyone any recommendations for companies who actively embrace that part of moving? As we're moving from SE London into Kent, that sort of area would be most useful but we will also consider approaching other companies if they're especially well-respected.

We previously, three years ago, used Matthew James (with whom we were very impressed) but on that occasion we hired a van & somewhat laboriously transported plants ourselves, which certainly isn't feasible this time. The move was also local rather than 50/60 miles.

Many thanks, in advance, for any assistance/wisdom you might impart. It all helps. ;-)
