Removals training from the experts

Helpful all day long

Very jolly, helpful all day long, nothing was too much. I had two quotes and felt Britannia Bradshaw was only a little more expensive but gave me reassurance that the job would be done better

The lads who did the removal were excellent.

Comments regarding your initial enquiry - Was able to give us advice what needed to be done

Andrew Worton

One of the most professional, efficient and polite removal crews I have come across

Andy J, Tony, Sonic and Dillion were in all honestly one of the most professional, efficient and polite removal crews I have come across and we have moved many times both in the UK and internationally. Their attention to detail, care and dedication to the job was outstanding!

All I can say that I hope all your removal crews are as excellent as the one I worked with.

I looked at a number of companies but I chose Britannia because they promptly acted on my enquiry and sent someone round quickly to inspect and followed that up with a quick quote. Additionally, I read online reviews and read very positive comments. Both these points helped seal my decision to proceed with Britannia Bradshaw.

Comments regarding your initial enquiry - Ernie was great in being able to come to the property very quickly after the enquiry and accurately recorded things to move and pack as part of his inspection.

Attia Ramzan

Why did you use us? - Price and service, everything explained to us fully .
