I moved from a small Curate''s house to a somewhat larger Vicarage. There were a considerable amount of books and a piano that is very precious to me. The move went incredibly smoothly with great care over all my belongings. As a result, nothing was damaged and everything was easy to unpack at the other end.

" The team arrived on time and were courteous throughout, as well as having a sense of humour. They checked everything that was being removed and covered stairs and the front door to prevent damage. The way they removed the piano was brilliant - so careful. They were also very efficient - I was amazed how quickly we were packed up and moved in to the new house.
I have used Britannia Squab before and was impressed - this is why I wanted to use them this time. Moving is very stressful, but these guys made it terribly easy and for that I thank them. "

An office move

" A friend recommended Britannia Squab to us after they'd handled her house move and we're glad we contacted them. From our first meeting they inspired confidence and demonstrated a clear understanding of our requirements. The price quoted seemed fair and reasonable. Packing was carried out with quiet efficiency and minimum disruption to our working day. As for the move itself, the whole operation was handled smoothly, professionally and with great care which we appreciated. The staff were courteous and considerate, not only to us but to the people in the offices we were leaving. I'd happily recommend the Squab Britannia team. "

We moved from our 5 bedroomed family home where we had been living for 14 years and so had accumulated a lot over the time. It took 2 days to pack and 2 days to unpack.

" I have never used the firm before but was recommended them by two good friends. We obtained 3 quotations and Britannia were middle of the range but what I was most impressed by during the initial visit was the attention to detail and the lovely manner of the gentleman. Vicky from the office was very calm and understanding in terms of waiting for our exchange date and tried there very best to ensure we had the days we required. I was dreading the move and worried about someone going through the house but I could not have asked for more polite and respectful handlers. They asked appropriate questions, they gave very useful hints and nothing was any trouble. I was not stressed at all during the move which was due to the removers taking that all away with their excellent organisation. Boxes were clearly labelled and placed in the correct rooms. They asked for the childrens names and so the children were very excited to see their very own boxes in their new bedrooms. I would recommend this firm to anyone moving house and feel there expertise in this area would help them to overcome any hurdles they face in a calm manner. Brilliant and worth every penny. I could not have packed my valuables as good as these gentlemen. Thank You very much indeed Paul, Chris, Jason and the rest of the team for making our move run so smoothly and actually be an enjoyable experience. "

Moving house about 8-9 miles away. We had pallets in the garage and a chicken coup to move. Other than that it was all boxes and furniture.

" I could not have asked for a better team of people. Everyone from the initial contact to the actual removal team worked very profesionally, were excellent to deal with, polite and punctual. The removal team on the day were brilliant and were very patient while waiting for keys and worked exceptionally hard.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Britannia Squab. "

John was very experienced with all aspects of packing and I felt very confident that my grandfather clock and anything else precious was in safe hands

" I had used Squab before so was keen to use them again and would recommend them to my friends. The team was efficient but friendly and a pleasure to have them help us through a very stressful time. A big thank you for their expertise and "nothing is too much trouble" attitude. "

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. "
