Professional visit and quote

James Conley was leading and in control at all times. Used the company after getting an impressive flyer through letter box and professional visit and quote. Martin Wilkes handled the initial enquiry knowledgeably and courteously all aspects.

Bernard Stevens

Took the stress out of the move

Efficient, friendly and very organised - took the stress out of the move. The company was a recommendation from friends.

Gareth Jones

The fragile pack was excellent

It was a last minute booking for a two day move and Britannia were able to fit me in. Excellent crew. Friendly, polite and very careful. Cannot really improve on the service provided. I had previously been put on a wait list with three other companies but when a completion date was agreed Britannia were able to help me.

The fragile pack was excellent and Les did a good job labelling the boxes so it has been easier to identify the contents. However the team leader did say that our self pack was very good and we had organised each room to make things easier for the crew. On the second day it poured with rain the whole time but nobody seemed to notice they just kept being cheerful. After a very stressful conveyance they made everything right! 

Maureen White
