Really quick and careful with our stuff both during packing and moving
Absolutely brilliant. Really quick and careful with our stuff both during packing and moving and very pleasant people. Used Bradshaws because of their ability to take out waiver if date changed and competitive price.
Initial enquiry was very easy and clear info. Consultant call back came within an hour as promised.John BurdenBirmingham
Managed to pack all our belongings into just 4 boxes
Please pass on our thanks to the removal team you sent to us on Thursday and Friday: Tom (who was there both days), Tony, Richard and Andy were all really efficient, polite and professional. We would like to put in writing our thanks to them and told the Friday team we would do so.
Not only were they professional, but as you will know, they managed to pack all our belongings into just 4 boxes. Many thanks again.Allan ClownesManchester
