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

So professional and efficient

They were absolutely brilliant! they just got on with the job while I tidied the remaining bits up and then started cleaning at the new house. Hardly knew they were there as they were so professional and efficient! Really nice crew. I would definitely recommend.

Nick was really friendly and I felt confident in everything he said. Felt really confident with the company.

Natalie Davies

They were friendly, helpful and very hard workers

They were given a van too small, so we had to leave a few items behind. Despite this the crew worked very hard to keep this to a minimum and we were impressed with the effort they went to to minimise the issue at the point when it was too late to rectify. The crew, Ryan and Fabio, were absolutely great. They were friendly, helpful and very hard workers. They were a credit to the company and are good ambassadors. Thank you for allocating them to our move. 

The removal day was perfect, other than the van being too small. We used the company based on the initial visit and professional manner of Martin Lloyd.

Lee Hill

We have already recommended you

Only one comment about the removals crew - fantastic. Used the company based on recommendation. 

We have already recommended you to our old neighbour, who has also decided to move. Excellent staff, professional and courteous.
