Courteous, hardworking and respectful
Courteous, hardworking and respectful. Especially in a difficult environment with covid restrictions.
Well priced and good reviews. They seemed a little more professional then other companies we received quotes from.
Initial enquiry was prompt, polite, none of our request were an issue and all our initial questions were answered. This put us at ease about our move.Richard ArmstrongManchester
We knew our items were safe in their hands
Sorry cannot remember names, but they were all really helpful, and very understanding. Considering the difficulties we had regarding completing on the day, we knew our items were safe in their hands. I honestly do not think you need to make any improvements, all concerned are a credit to the company.
We had three quotes and we found this one to be the most professional. As the move did not take place on the moving day we asked for our items to be put into storage. Jacki in the office was really helpful and understanding during this difficult time.
Made an appointment over the phone for a quote. No hassle appointment was made for a few days later and everything was explained to us what would happen on the day especially during Covid restrictions.Robert LoweBirmingham
We are so pleased we chose your company
I just want to say a massive thank you to Sonic and team for moving us out of our home last week Sunday and Monday.
What amazing guys they were, nothing was too much trouble, they worked so hard and methodically. They are an absolute credit to your company so I just wanted you to know how much we appreciated them. Also before our decision we had 3 different removal companies down to compare and we are so pleased we chose your company.
I’d also like to thank their manager as Sonic and his team tried to get to our house on the Friday when it was ice and snow and the manager was able to rearrange for them to come on the Sunday to make a start which was very much appreciated.
The other person was your sales rep Diane Twigge who was absolutely excellent and extremely helpful, right on her game. Thank you again for all your wonderful staff that we had dealings with.Janet HallManchester
A perfect move
Martin and his team were absolutely amazing. They were so pleasant and polite throughout the day despite the snow and cold! They were so respectful and went out of their way to ensure that our move went as smoothly as possible. We couldn't have asked for more and would highly recommend. We felt that nothing could have been any better. Recommendation by a friend......a perfect move... Initial inquiry was very friendly and helpful.Liz RoundBirmingham
