About Us

     
 
Reputations are not built overnight
In Referenceline's view, this track record is more important than the ratings. Don't be impressed by a few old reviews which may not be representative.  Look for firms with a commitment to asking for feedback - good or bad - from their customers.  We recommend that you look for a track record of ratings and reviews in at least 9 of the last 12 months and that you should not be too concerned about an isolated negative review.  Ask the firm for their side of the story.
 


 
Code of Practice
Businesses have a legal responsibility to treat you fairly, but it's often hard to know what questions to ask or what standards to expect.  They are the experts and you should be able to rely on them to help you make decisions.  These questions explain the commitments that this business has made to follow a code of practice and they will help you understand what you have a right to expect.

 
Code of practice: 91%
Before the move, did your remover make you aware of the Code of Practice?
 
Description: 99%
Before the move, did your remover give you a clear description, price and timetable for the work to be carried out?
 
Loss or damage: 94%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to a). Liability for loss or damage?
 
Claims timing: 84%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to b). Time limits for making claims?
 
Cancellation: 95%
Did your remover draw your particular attention to the contract terms relating to c). Cancellation / postponement rights and charges?
 
Protection options: 96%
Before the move, did your remover explain your insurance or other protection options?
 
Claims procedure: 81%
Before the move, did your remover make you aware of the procedure for making claims and to whom complaints should be referred?
You can see how many customers have said "Yes" in answer to each question, but please don't expect 100% in every case.  Nobody's perfect and some customers may not be completely sure about the answer.  It's more important that you understand these questions and discuss them with the business so that you both agree what good service means for you.  A responsible business will be happy to explain the details to you and it's always better to clarify these points upfront to avoid misunderstandings later on.

Move from Devon to Banbury with storage inbetween.
 
Cost: £2800
 

"This is the third move I have made through Jamie Briggs Removals and I have also used their packing service and also storage facilities each time between moves. On each occassion I have found them professional, flexible, courteous and very easy to deal with. I believe they offer good value for the service received and nothing is too much trouble for them and they do their upmost to accommodate all your requests. I would not hesitate to use Jamie Briggs again and I am grateful to them for making each move as easy as possible as a result of excellent service from start to finish."
 
 
Team:
Tony on the quote and Mel on the admin were pleasant to deal with throughout as were all the guys that moved me on the day.

House moving

"We have just moved home for the third time in the last 11 years and Jamie Briggs has been always our straight choice. We were so satisfied after the first time with the service that we did not even asked for alternative quotes.
I would not hesitate to choose them again."

We lived in a 3 bed cottage, unusually a bit of a trek down a shared path through a neighbours garden to get to our cottage. .

"Although just a relatively small house, Jamie Briggs sent 4 strapping young chaps . They were all well turned out, polite and courteous, and all of them understood the stress of moving and went out of their way to make it easy.

They took their shoes off, handled the boxes and packing of fragile items with care and consideration, and helped us put all the heavy items exactly where we needed them so we didn’t have to worry about them again.

I’d recommend them to anyone and will go out of my way to use them again"
 
 
Team:
The day was a bit of a blur but all 4 men were fantastic.

Move from 3 bed house Bicester to 3 bed house Banbury.

"All went well and smoothly. All boxes were well packed - there was no damage. Chose the company because we used them a few years ago - impressed they still had records. All was good - opted for additional insurance just in case - non was needed. Timings were exactly as promised and crew were friendly and helpful throughout - even moving things we were planning on throwing away!"

Thanks to everyone involved in our removal from Woodstock to Hanborough.

" All went well, a dry two days helped. But it was very difficult getting large items out of Woodstock but they made it look easy.
The team of 4 were led by Neil who was very capable and pleasant."

We downsized from 4000 sq ft to 2500 sq ft, disposed of a significant number of items and set aside items for a family member''s first home.

"We have just completed a significant downsizing. Our entire move took 5 days including 1 day of disposals, 2 days packing precious items for storage and a further 2 days packing and moving the remainder. The entire team from Jamie Briggs could not have been more helpful in the planning and execution of the move. Everything was packed and moved with the utmost care, including a large, heavy marble dining table. The team were highly respectful, unobtrusive and extremely professional. Furthermore everything was moved in a logical order and with great attention to detail enabling us to set up our new home in the most efficient, painless manner. I cannot recommend them highly enough."

Customer Review
 
The second of our double move from our rented house we were living in since we sold our house in London to our new permanent home.
 
Cost: £2000
 

"We had some very delicate antiques as well as a lot of china and glass, and had had a bad experience last time we moved 7 months ago with three issues, two of which were unresolved, so we were very nervous about this move, but Jamie Briggs were brilliant from the estimator, the office staff and most of all the team on the day who couldn't have been nicer, more efficient or more respectful. I did some of the packing of non delicate things myself so this may have been cheaper than it would have been. When we have work done on this house we may well have to have some things put in storage and we shall use Jamie Briggs again."

Moving contents of a 2 bed house plus storage in garage and outbuildings to another house an hour away.
 
Cost: £768
 

"The team did an excellent job - they turned up early, packed efficiently and protected fragile items. They were extremely helpful at the other end too including putting furniture back together and ensuring we were happy with everything. In summary, they did an excellent job for a good price."

House move of 4 bed property to a 3 story 4 bed property around 15 miles distance. We had 2 very nervous cats who were in the old and new property on the day of the move. The removal team were very accommodating and careful as we needed to keep them safe in one room during the loading/unloading to ensure they did not get outside and run away.
 
Cost: £984
 

"Excellent service from the initial meeting, estimation of volume/space required, delivery of boxes and packing materials to the actual removal team on the day. Collection of empty boxes after the move also carried out very quickly.

We would highly recommend Jamie Briggs Removals to all our friends and family."

We moved next door, so much of the move was done by walking from one house to the next and using a medium sized van as a shuttle.

"We moved on a day of heavy snow and sleet and were impressed that our movers braved a white out on the M40. They remained good humoured throughout the day inspite of the weather. Excellent service!"

This was a simple move 15 minutes up the road from where we currently lived - we packed and moved boxes ourselves and so this was a predominately loft and shift of furniture
 
Cost: £748
 

"We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this firm to anyone - they made the process so easy for us and on the day the two guys were extremely friendly and hard working - everything was done and moved and unloaded by 2pm that day!"

The move was hampered by the failure of the developers to remove scaffolding meaning that there was insufficient access to the property on the move date. Had to return the following day and decant all items into a smaller van, making several journeys to a from the large lorry that had to be parked elsewhere in the village.

"Jamie Briggs were friendly, helpful and efficient throughout. WE had the packing service and it was fantastic. They packed everything expertly and not a things was broken during the packing or move. The teams on all days were really professional yet friendly and we felt very comfortable with them packing for us.
Through no fault of Jamie Briggs, the actual move date was a complete disaster due to access issues at the new property. We cannot fault the teams that helped resolve this, both on the day and the following day when they were finally able to offload our belongings. On both days, they worked solidly and tirelessly to get us moved in.
Overall, we were 100% happy with Jamie Briggs. They were recommended to us and we, in turn, will definitely be recommending them in future.
Thanks to all that helped our move."

To move elderly mother from her home to an assisted living apartment

"The initial contact by phone was handled professionally by an articulate and well mannered young man.
My elderly mother was impressed with the person sent round to provide a quote for the move and remarked that he was a very nice man !
The quote was emailed and posted, arranging dates and confirming acceptance was straight forward, The company was accommodating and easy to deal with.
The move was carried out without a problem.
I would have no hesitation recommending Jamie Briggs to anyone."
