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

Always patient and good-humoured

A massive thank you to lovely Les, Paul and the gang who did a grand job of packing up all my stuff, and were always patient and good-humoured and nice to have around.

Barbara Tilson

The whole process was kept stress free

We moved to Durham 5 - 7 October 2021. The whole process from the assessment by Ernie through to the pack and load and delivery was excellent.  Ryan, Mike, Dan, Noel and Richard were great ambassadors for your company.  They have a can-do attitude and nothing was too much trouble.  The whole process was kept stress free and I couldn't recommend them highly enough.

Rob Henstock

Competitive, clear, respectful of our needs and adaptable

They worked so hard, delivered our belongings in the pouring rain, and were always cheerful and respectful. Can’t think of anything that could be done better!

Why did you use us? Competitive, clear, respectful of our needs and adaptable in the face of changing circumstances

The patience shown to us at a difficult time was outstanding. We felt that nothing was too much trouble, and everything was dealt with calmly and efficiently.

I felt our belongings would be cared for, and that the quote was both accurate and competitive.
