Would you like to tell us anything about your move team?
My move team was AMAZING. I already left a google review for them but they were amazing. Some of my furniture didn't even need to be dissembled which allowed me to get set up in my new place faster. Plus I had some really unique items like instruments and vinyl records and they all made it safely!

Jacki was by far amazing. She answered COUNTLESS of my questions and was always so prompt. I feel bad for asking so many questions to her, but she is amazing and wonderful at her job. I can't thank Jacki and Martin enough for starting the whole process and getting it all the way done. :D Thank you so much!

Is there anything else you would like to tell us about your move?
We suffered many issues with the move from Bolton to Huddersfield with the sudden need to break the chain for completion dates on sale and purchase, late transfer of funds, late access to new house and the need to tranship everything to small vehicles due to access problems and both Lynne and the removal guys kept calm and got on with the job. Without their excellent attitude we would have really struggled!

Thanks to Lynne, John, Paul, Alan, Rob, Adrian, Chris and Adam for all your help!!!
