After the initial quote and then agreement of proposed completion date there was doubt about whether we would be able to move into the new address. The company came up with an alternative plan ‘just in case’. They were so helpful and re-assuring. In the end we were able to go with the original plan but didn’t know this until the day before.
 

"From the time I phoned the office to the removal being completed we were treated exceptionally well. Everyone was helpful, polite, friendly and couldn’t do enough to try to take the stress of the move off our shoulders. The packers worked efficiently and we were extremely pleased with the way they looked after our things. Mick and Andy were part of this team and then they moved us over the next two days. They were absolutely brilliant; patient, kind, cheerful and so hardworking. It felt a bit like we were losing friends when they finished! We can’t thank them enough."

From a ground floor flat to a first floor flat where access limited due to it being an entry way and metal outside staircase.
 

"Both of the removal men were courteous, friendly, polite and helpful. I had reservation about an item of furniture being able to be moved into the flat but they did with ease. A very easy stress free move."

The move went extremely well in all aspects. The driver was a credit to the firm as he negotiated a rather difficult access. All the people involved in the move were very good indeed.

We moved about 3 ½ miles, from a 1st floor flat (8 years old) 2 bedroom, 2 bathrooms & much built in furniture in the bedrooms, also a garage. We asked for a full pack, but my wife and I (our vendor died about 15th December), and uncertainty, which of 4 removers, we had obtained quotes from, would be available to move us, did a great deal of the non-breakable packing Dorset.
 

"We moved to a modern, 2 bed bungalow with easy access. The 2 men, who did the move out and the move in,over were an excellent, cheerful team, who packed, all that was left for them to pack, with great care and were very careful with our furniture and clothing. In hindsight, knowing how much packing we had done ourselves, I should have asked that the price be renegotiated. I did not do that, because we had received such high recommendations. For Squab and did not wish to risk having to fall between the other removers."

Emigrating to Australia

" Brittania in the UK were great. The packing were fantastic, thorough and professional. However your agents in Australia have been shocking! They have been rude, unhelpful and have changed our paperwork without our knowledge which has now affected us getting our belongings. They have changed our visa status on the paperwork claiming I am a non resident. We are now sitting on cardboard boxes waiting for them to call us as their attitude towards us has been so vile, we are now too scared to call them! And spparently the form I filled in in the office with yourselves, was filled in wrong too according to them :-/ I would recommend the UK end of the company but not for international removerals.

A very big move for us – with the added problem of one persons disability.
 

"My husband and I are both over 65 years. He is disabled. We were making a big move from Warwickshire to Hampshire. I was assured that the removal crew would take care of everything, and they most certainly did. I would recommend the company to anyone who would listen."

Move to rented property while we wait for our next purchase to go through. Moved about 1 mile!
 

"Everyone at Squab has been excellent. From Vicky in the office and Stefan who did the survey, to the team on the day. They were all friendly and professional. The team on the day dealt with everything with speed, good humour and a willing attitude. I would have no hesitation at all in recommending Squab – indeed, when we have to go through this process again in 6 months, they will be the only firm I’ll call!"

Due to distance of move 90+ miles. We had to book two weeks ahead of anticipated completion date. (i.e. 07/02/14) Solicitors informed us of problems in chain and we only were told of ex of contracts 05/02/14 – right to the line. But removal people were very sympathetic.
 

"Britannia Squab had boxes delivered in advance, enabling us to pack and this removed a lot of stress off us in view of not knowing exact completion date. They arrived on time. Went about their work in a professional manner and were careful and extremely helpful on day of move!"

The move involved: - shifting two crates in storage. Additional items at another address. Some garden items.
 

"I used Squab to store my items for just over 2 years. The office staff have always be efficient & very friendly particularly Andrea in the Norwick team. The removal men were delightful – Jason & Mick nothing was too much trouble for them & took the stress out of what is always a challenging situation! Thank you."

To move contents of property from Kineton to Wellesbourne and also collect 3 additional items of furniture from parents house in Kenilworth

" Britannia didn't have a van available on the move date as it had to change but them organised a local company who they regularly deal with to assist me with the move. Both companies were brilliant, it was the first time I had used a removal company they helped me through the process and any questions I had. "

We had full packing service. We received a pre-visit call giving us names of guys coming to work at our home. When they arrived they were smart, friendly and professional. All the packing was done very carefully and with plenty of paper and boxing. It was two day packing, one day moving and day after the move to deliver non essentials. Move day went smoothy and we got all beds and items we needed up and positioned correctly. All walkways were carefully considered and covered.

" We were recommend Squab from a family member who had moved a couple of months earlier. I found the team to be totally considerate, professional, smart, friendly and caring. They made sure I was aware of what they were doing at all times and involved me where necessary. From the quotation through to dealing with the office team to the moving guys, all fantastic and fully recommend.

Only observation was that the boxes were quite slippery so when emptied and flat packed, they were difficult to move around as kept slipping out your hands!

Removal was to an old cottage with low doorways and very narrow star – cases with restricted access to upstairs rooms.
 

"Service was excellent, with the whole crew willingly going the extra mile to hoist furniture expertly through an upstairs bathroom window. They carried out the job quickly, efficiently, professionally and without a single breakage. We have another house to clear this spring and will be using Britannia Squab again."
