We paid for the fragiel packing service on top of moving us from Warwick to Worcester.

" The 4 guys who worked on our move were all excellent. They were all helpful, friendly and really made the process of moving to be as painless as possible. I'd liek to think that we didn't ask anything out of the ordinary of them but certainly if we did, there wasn't any issue raised.

The office guys were all brilliant and very understandign with our difficult move (all with solicitors!) and were as helpful as you could reasonably expect.

I was moving from Coventry to near Skipton with just 2 weeks notice for the move. I contacted 4 removal firms and after having been given quotes after their attendance to see what needed moving.

" I expected Squab would be the most expensive and was pleasantly surprised to find that not only were they the cheapest, they did exactly what they said they would do. I had a quote by email the afternoon of the visit for the quotation, they were the cheapest and best of all they were extremely efficient, courteous and most importantly to me helpful. The packing boxes arrived well in time as I tried to pack myself and there were plenty of them as also was the packing tape and packing tissue. They arrived on time having phoned me to let me know the exact time. They protected the carpets and carefully packed the televisions and mirrors and any other items I was unsure of. Because I could not go into my new property for a few weeks my contents had to go into their store. At the time of the move, again they phoned to let me know an arrival time and again everything went smoothly and was completed efficiently. Best of all if I had a query they were only a phone call away and the problem was solved.

I had never heard of Squab until a friend said he had stored some of his things with Squab and how good they were. I found the way the firm worked was efficient and courteous and nothing seemed too small or large a problem for them to deal with.

Anybody thinking of moving should contact Squab if they want an efficient professional move take place and in my case the cheapest of the firms I contacted. "

Packing and taking furniture, garden furniture/workshop tools, paintings, household items into storage

" The response to our initial enquiry was very fast with Rob calling to our house within three hours of our calling. He was excellent with advising what could be done, when, the process- all putting our minds at ease.

The Team, led by Andy on both days, agai were excellent- efficient, tidy, careful, attentive- always one step ahead of us; and importantly, good fun to have in the house. They were great. "

House move with packing service

" From the outset the move was really well planned. The initial consultation was very professional & the full service was explained.
All the guys arrived on time & worked hard to prepare for our move the following day.
On the removal day again they were on time & professional. The move was very relaxed which completely surprised me especially moving with a 10 month old baby! I would not hesitate to use Britannia Squab again. "

House and large garage move from Midlands to Devon.Difficult items to move from garage and garden!

" We had no idea how to arrange our move. Contacted the company after looking on the internet. So pleased we went with them. As everyone knows moving is a very stressful time, which was made bearable by the customer service which was excellent. We could not praise them anymore. We would not hesitate to recommend them. Helpful, polite, very hardworking. Everyone who we dealt with were wonderful....Thank you, so pleased we chose you to help us. Special thanks to Stephan who arranged everything from the word go. To Paul and Tom who were in our eyes the absolute best removal guys we could have wished for. Hardworking, polite and just brilliant! If you are worried about which removal/storage company to go with give Britannia Squab Leamington Spa a go...you wont regret. it! "

Relocation move for the 3rd time in 7 months

" We were delighted with the service received from Britannia Squab, from the first meeting with the sales rep through to the move itself. All staff were polite and courteous and I would be very happy to recommend them to anyone thinking of moving. They take all the stress away and are very helpful through to the end.

Should we ever have to move again, I will definitely use them! "

4 bed detached house - 75% to storage and balance to 2 bed house. Then all to 2 bed house

" We were very pleased with all aspects of both moves, care during storage and final delivery to our new home. All the staff were extremely polite and helpful, We should specially like to mention John who packed our things so carefully - no breakages whatsoever and we had loads of crystal and china. Also the packing of the grandfather clock was A1 "

Complete Kitchen and Household contents including antiques moved from UK to France

" I have searched for several frustrating months trying to find the right removers for my circumstances and was at the point where I was going to do the whole thing myself. Then I received a recommendation from a removals firm who could not accommodate my moving times to try Squab in Leamington Spa.

From the moment that Vicky picked up the phone, Stefan came to assess goods to be moved, I knew I had found what I was looking for. On removals day "Mac and Louie" arrived and were both charming, helpful and most importantly treated my articles with the same care and diligence as if they were their own.

I made a self-election to fly from UK to France to oversee the arrival of goods. "Mac and John" had already arrived and were systematically depositing my goods into my property. Again the same attention to detail was observed. My French neighbours showed interest in the activities and Mac and John soon achieved great rapport which assisted me to introduce myself to my new neighbours, for which I am truly grateful.

The price was in-line with many quotes that I had received BUT the Service was exceptional. I would have no hesitation in using this service for all future requirements. "

4 crates to store & 2 crates (part load) to France

" Extremely good in just about every aspect, and all the guys most amenable. The only negative was that even though some items had been clearly marked to be sent to France, they failed to arrive. (Hope they are in store rather than (as a part load) being delivered to someone else!) "

The two guys who moved us were very good indeed. The move went very smoothly. Various members of our family have used squab on several occasions and have been very pleased with the service.

" Excellent company, very pleased with the friendly and professional service

Other members of my family have used squab before who were also very happy with the service who recommended that we used them. Glad we did use them. "

Move from 2 bed house to 5 bed house.

" The move team was fantastic. Jason the lead was very polite, punctual and great with the other team members. Thomas who I understand is a seasonal team member was also great. Very polite and even surprised himself with what he was able to move easily.

The team contributed to making the whole experience a memorable and happy one. "

Full pack and move from a 3 bed deatched including garage and substantial book collection and garage equipment

" What a great experience. Having moved myself 4 times previously this was the first professional move, I am tempted to move again soon just for the relaxed experience I had.
From ten minutes after the team arrived all stress went out the window.
They were foremost professional but gave the utmost care in packing ALL our possesions, far more than I can honestly say I would have. At all the times they were all freindly and polite even when I 'emptied' a 2 litre chip pan of oil across the kitchen as Andy was trying to pack it away.
We had 2 teams and met in total 6 lovely chaps moving 2 truck loads of 'stuff' unstintintingly on 2 of the hottest days of the year and not a single groan when they discovered the number of steps inside the new house, guys I honestly forgot there were 2 up and down even to the kitchen and lounge.
All items were put in rooms after confirmation from us. Not one item was damaged not even one of our many glasses.
Still reeling at the volume of paper used for packing but it works.
Thanks again boys, I highly recommend you all and thank you again for making it such a stress free occasion.Just wish I knew what value for money it is to use professionally trained people such as yourselves
I will only move again soon if I can choose you all to do it again, lead 'Squab Squad' We will have less garage content next time and I will empty the chip pan before you arrive:)

You only had to move us about a mile from one big house to another big house. This took place perfectly over 3 days.

" We havent used Squab before but would certainly recommend and/or use them again. The move was carried out exactly as planned with respect to timing and cost. The moving team were first class, efficient, hardworking and a pleasure to deal with. We were particularly impressed with the way they went the extra mile to ensure things such as pictures and mirrors were wrapped effectively. "

half of our house was moved into storage and the other half into a new address , all needed to be packed and divided so there was no confusion as to what was going where.

" We have not used this company before, but we plan to use them for our next move in the next six months. They were incredible in their professionalism, courtesy and attention to detail.
On the day of the move, five lovely men turned up at the house, lead by Mick, and proceeded to efficiently and incredibly speedily dismantle, pack and divide the house. The right stuff arrived at the new house, the right boxes arrived at the storage, everything was put in place and left as you'd like to find it.
I can't recommend this company highly enough, and would be happy to be contacted to confirm this.
Thank you for making a terribly stressful time into an almost enjoyable one. "

excellent !! Adam and Mick were just brilliant !!

" I had reservations about using removal companies having managed it myself in the past.
Squab from order through to delivery were great, professional and friendly.
I have to emphasise that Adam and Mick were just superb. I would have no hesitation recommending them to friends and colleagues in the future. "

Move from 3rd floor apartment in Midlands (no lift!) to a 4th floor apartment in Central London.

" Over the past few years I have used a number of removal firms and have been happy with all of them. Britannia Squab were even better - very pleased/impressed with their professionalism. Would happily use again and also recommend them. "
