What removal company would you recommend?

Postby SouthLondonDaddy » Wed Aug 19, 2020 5:09 pm

We need to move locally, a short distance only, and want a company that will also help with packing (they bring boxes, tape, help us pack, etc)

A few years ago we used Harradines. Very good service, they charged about £1,500 including packing.

At the time the cheapest quote (£1k) was Roberts & Denny's but they weren't available the day we needed to move.

What companies would you recommend?
Do you also remember how much they cost? We were charged £1.5k to move a 3-bed but without a lot of furniture.

I see that "white van gentlemen", "gentleman and a van" and "Burke & Wills" are all local but I don't know any one who has used them.

PS Please, if you have only just registered to the forum, or if you have only made a couple of posts, don't bother replying: the odds that your recommendation isn't genuine will be too high, unfortunately!

We use Gentleman & A Van and we were very happy. The costs you mention is roughly what we paid to move from a 3 bedroom flat around Battersea Park to a house near Clapham Common Westside.

Burke and Wills. I have never heard anyone say a bad word against them. They are great albeit not the cheapest.

Second for gentleman and a van. Used them in February to pack up our two bedroom flat and move us to our new house. Very happy with the service. They were efficient, polite, and best of all, everything was moved without a single broken plate. Worth the money.

SouthLondonDaddy, would you mind sharing which company you hired and if you liked their service? I am moving to the area soon and wanted to list the best recommended ones to start getting quotes.

We used Burke and Willis 2 years ago and had a very disappointing service . They are incredibly helpful before you move and not so much during the move and almost disappear afterwards if there are any problems . I can’t remember the details but I did write about the poor service here so search and it should come up, I recall I wasn’t the only disappointed client who posted on NVN. They are also very expensive.
