A 4 day move from Warwickshire to Norfolk

" The service from Squab from beginning to end was straightforward, honest and professional. All questions before the move were fully dealt with in the most helpful way. The removal itself was exemplary with the team sorting out all the loose ends and handling our belongings as if they were their own. The loading and unloading was thoughtful to ensure those items most needed were loaded last and unloaded first and furniture was placed in rooms in practical arrangements having regard to sockets, access and other pieces. We really couldn't have wished for more from Mick and Chris. Finally, there were no nasty surprises after we were locked into the move date either in terms of availability or any additional costs for aspects not included in the estimate.

12 months furniture storage then removal from storage in Midlands down to Devon

" Fantastic service. Would not hesitate to recommend. Had furniture in storage for 12 months with Squab and they dealt with the moves into and out of storage. The quality of all aspects of Squab's services is high from switchboard/reception, invoicing/accounts and the removals team themselves. V friendly amd professional service. Nothing is ever too much trouble. "

Local move (3 miles), furniture only, single van and two movers. Tricky hairpin staircase at the destination property.

" The movers on the day were brilliant, manhandling bulky, heavy, awkward furniture through narrow doorways and up a staircase that seemed impossibly tight. They must have broken the laws of physics a couple of times, but they didn't break anything else! "

My house purchase fell through only a few days before I was due to complete. As a result I had to hurriedly arrange for my furniture to go into storage until I had found a new home. It took 4 months.

" I cannot praise Britannia Squab enough. When the house purchase fell through they quietly and efficiently changed our plans, putting all of my worldly goods into storage at their modern warehouse facility. They kept in touch while I looked for a new home and, once I had found somewhere, they quickly made the arrangements to move me into my new home. They arrived on the day and at the time stated and efficiently unloaded everything, moving it all into the correct rooms. They were fast, friendly and efficient and went out of their way to be helpful, as had everyone else in their organisation. Before they left they made sure that everything was as it should be and that I was happy. No damage and not one single breakage either. I cannot praise them enough. Well done and thank you again.

Downsizing property, moving location and we did majority of packing ourselves.

" overall we were satisfied. Our only comments would be when it was something non standard I felt rather under pressure. as we were downsizing I didn't know exactly where everything was going to go, and as I couldn't direct the removers fast enough boxes ended up all over the place which we then had to relocate/ "

House move

" I was very pleased with your service from the first visit through to the recent pick up of empty boxes.

That first visit demonstrated was very informative and helped me to identify what I was going to take with me, how I needed to pack or have objects packed and generally how I needed to prepare.

The boxes were delivered when I asked and the packing done well prior to the move. On the day of the move they again arrived promptly when expected, packed well and all went well for the move from my old house.

When we arrived at Greville Rd, things deteriorated because the previous owners had not completed their move. But your employees continued to be efficient, helpful, and cheerful and most of all patient in difficult circumstances. They did not complain about moving furniture out of the way in order to bring mine in from the van/s or about how long they had to stay; they just did their job and did it well, arranging boxes and furniture as best they could. Full marks to each of them for all they did.

Finally, some of the boxes, now empty and surplus were picked up when I needed the space.

I would not hesitate to recommend your service and am grateful for all they did. "

Move from small property to much larger property. Britannia Squab had moved the sellers out of the house we were moving into so were very familiar with the property.

" Mick and the team allocated to our move were brilliant. They were very accommodating as we had a small child in the house and she was made to feel at ease with the crew. Couldn't fault the guys on the day. They were brilliant.
Only comment relates to paperwork and that the quote layout can be a little confusing. "

removals from Warwickshire to Hampshire, including packing.

" delighted with the removals personell.However my satifaction with this company has been destroyed by their attitude to damage. They unfortunately broke one of the handles on a very expensive dresser, and are now asking me to pay 50 excess for damage caused by them.They are prepared to supply the handles, but if I dont fit them and they get someone to fit them I have to pay the excess. "
 
 
 
   Business Reply:

Customer had already informed the crew on the day of the removal that he would be happy to fit the handle once received back repaired or replaced. Customer has been informed, after he notified us that he no longer wished to fit the handle, that as we are over 100 miles away we will be happy to fit a the handle when we were next in his area. If we were to have a third party fit this we would incur labour and mileage charges hence the need to raise a claim.

Move some contents of an elderly lady''s house to a residential home and a larger quantity of goods to another house.

" Apart from one minor glitch when the team arrived without packaging tape, the service was excellent. The staff were unfailingly courteous and efficient, the communications were excellent, and in a load that included a lot of valuable glass and porcelain we had no breakages whatsoever. We had excellent service and would recommend Britannia Squab strongly to any potential client. "

moving from house sold into rented property

" I was really stressed about moving house, but I have to say as soon as your people arrived I was put at ease and all the stress just went. I was most impressed with the move and the two lads were absolutely brilliant, I cannot thank them enough. We are in rented at the moment and when we move again hopefully to the Isle of Wight, you will definately be the ones to move us. You are definately the best removers I have ever used.I have absolutely nothing negative to say about your Company. Once again, many thanks. "

" The whole process from start to finish was absolutely first class from the first initial appointment to the end.
The team where first class keeping us updated all the time.
The packing and removal team who came to wrap and pack our furniture where first class, very friendly and worked very hard.
One first class company could not fault them. "

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. "
