Two moves, one house move from Cheltenham to Cornwall then contents of house in storage also moved from Cheltenham to Cornwall within 2 weeks of each other.

"The team that moved us over a few days were fantastic, hard working and very professional. They were extremely careful with the furniture/contents that they packed and unpacked. Very polite and I would highly recommend Herbert Davis. We have moved several times and they are the best firm that we have used."

We were moving a long distance (+ 120 miles) and were downsizing - two big challenges.
 
Cost: £4000
 

"The staff were very sensitive to our needs right from the start. Thus we were made aware of what was involved right from the beginning - as well as answering lots of questions from the day of the quote through until the day of the move until until they had delivered us to our new home. This greatly helped relieve the stress levels. The quality of the packing of breakable items was also first class.

Customer Review
 
Whole large 4 bed house move of about 60 miles. The move included a packing service and also tricky access at the new property. This meant that everything had to be unloaded from the large van into a smaller one (transshipment) to navigate a very narrow one way street. Once within the new property, narrow stairs with tight angles and low ceilings in places made moving large items onto upper floors challenging.

"The company representative who came to quote for removal was thorough, detailed and professional. Paperwork came through quickly and was adjusted to take a count of changes. Due to delays in exchange, there was a shorter than expected time before completion, and during phone contact with the administrative staff, resulting uncertainties were discussed kindly and flexibly.

The packing service was swift and efficient, meaning that we could live normally in the house until the day the move started. Almost all items were carefully packaged and reached the new property in great condition - the single box with damage was packed by a less experienced member of staff and this was taken seriously by the lead packer.

A variety of staff were involved over the full 4 days. All were polite, professional and well presented, and one lead member of the team was in charge and liaised with us throughout. Care was taken that we could stay in adequate comfort in the old house for the last night as well as the new house for the first, and rooms were cleared efficiently in such a way that we could clean each as the removal progressed.

The transshipment phase of the move meant a very long day for the removers, as every item had to be handled twice, but the team remained positive and good humoured throughout, suggesting solutions when pieces of furniture did not fit as expected.

Overall, the company made the stressful process of removal as smooth as anyone could have wished."
 
 
Team:
Particular thanks to Zack who did most of the packing and led the team.

Herbert Davis were punctual & the men very friendly & courteous. They worked hard. They even came back for the remaining garden pots which couldn''t be included in the first load.
 
Cost: £1020
 

"I would recommend Herbert Davis to anyone. They are reasonably priced & didn't charge for any boxes which they provided. To have the removal of garden pots included in the price was a bonus. They would even have taken our portable shed if we hadn't managed to sell it first. A very good service indeed!"

Access to the property was restricted, however all this was taken into account and ran smoothly. The move took place over 3 days and included a full packing service which was very efficient but it is important to plan well what you will need during this period and isolate them or they will be packed! The staff went out of their way to make the move as stress free as possible, explaining each stage and generally helping in whatever way they could. They worked long and hard and delivered everything to my new property in tact. I did feel a little rushed towards the end when my buyer''s vans arrived. As we had both chosen the same company, their removal men assisted with my move and as a result some things intended to remain were delivered to my new property. However, when the boxes were collected they returned the items. All in all a good result, better than anticipated.
 
Cost: £2400
 

"My experience was a good one. I believe it is important to choose a company who is a member of the British Association of Removers as it affords extra peace of mind during the move should you need it. All the companies who quoted were members and offered much the same service so it came down to price and availability.
Herbert Davis provided a prompt quote shortly after their representative visited the property, explaining procedures and offering advice. They kept in touch once I had accepted the quote and were helpful when dates kept changing. Their staff were friendly, helpful and efficient including collection of the boxes on completion. Office staff were also helpful and friendly."

Customer Review
 
3 day move, including packing, from Gloucestershire to the Wirral carried out on some of the hottest days of August 2022. Owing to narrow roads the removal company had to bring small vans and then take the contents and transfer to a large van.
 
Cost: £4000
 

"Excellent experience overall from first contact to finish. The men were respectful, hard working and sensitive. It was extremely hot so they had to change their original plan of sleeping overnight in the van. Instead they got up extremely early in order to unload on the final day. We have moved many times and a difference this time was that the person sent out to quote (Andy) was also part of the removals team. This is good practice.
I would recommend using this company."

We moved about an hour away from our previous house. Herbert Davis sent three guys to pack for us on the day before the move.

"They made a very good job of the packing. On moving day we were out of the old house before twelve and in the new house before two. All our goods made it into the house and garage before five. The move went well. No damage to goods or house.
The three guys were friendly, helpful, polite and we could not fault them. An excellent job. A very good removal experience. We would be happy to recommend Herbert Davis"

During the run up to my move the Herbert Davis office Team (Kathy) were always understanding and patient. Everything was done to accommodate the ever-changing dates of my move until finally the date was set. I opted for a pre-move packing day. Zac worked quickly and methodically to pack fragile items and as Iím disabled, he ensured I had room to move about safely until move day. On move day the team (Rich and Zac) worked so hard. Nothing was too much trouble and great care was taken with all my belongings. Itís a strange feeling watching everything I own be loaded on to a lorry. They worked so hard and with great care. My move was local, just a mere 12 miles or so and although it was a long day, for reasons outside of our control, the team just got on with the task of placing boxes in rooms and taking great care to place my furniture where I wanted it. I cannot rate Herbert Davis Removals highly enough and urge you to contact them to help with your move. Nothing was too much trouble and itís something less to worry about when you know you are in safe hands. Herbert Davis Removals are FANTASTIC.
 
Cost: £800
 

"From my perspective it was important my movers knew there were things I couldnít do in preparation for my move, for example, take down my curtains. Itís very important to have a survey before you start. Andy was excellent and instinctively knew what help I needed and therefore removed some of my anxiety about the packing and moving process.
Zac took control on packing day, making sure boxes were sensibly labelled. He took great care with fragile items and worked swiftly and methodically.
On move day Rich and Zac quickly and safely loaded the van. They were both polite and approachable and nothing was too much trouble. My keys were late being released and I did my best to keep the operations room updated. Although Rich and Zac must have hated the long wait in a hot van, they did their best to reassure me when it all got too much.
The final stage of unloading was so easy as every box identified its destination. I was beyond tired on the day but I knew my belongings were in safe hands and left them to do their job, which they both did magnificently.
I thoroughly recommend Herbert Davis removals and cannot rate them highly enough."

Large 4 story house on a one way street with permit parking. The removers brought 2 vans and parked with respect in the road outside the house.
 
Cost: £1300
 

"Had several estimates but this was the cheapest although that was not why we chose it. We liked the fact that they were local. Very helpful in answering our questions and the gentleman who came to give us a quote seemed to know what he was doing. Any questions we had were dealt with over the phone. Boxes for packing were free of charge. Everything went smoothly. Everyone was polite and worked hard all day."

Hi We were downsizing and moving from a 5 bed to a semi detached 4 bed. The lads completely Ďgot ití. They were sympathetic understanding and just grafted. Great sense of humour and even though we had a delay on completion they cracked on with what they could. We had no sensitive or fragile objects but all our possessions were treated with the utmost respect and discretion
 
Cost: £1200
 

"Great lads doing a tough job. No fuss no bother. Very clever that they remembered our first names and used them throughout. A great icebreaker.
Really professional and an utter pleasure. They took us through a difficult day with ease.
I am happy to recommend to anybody."

All transported to storage for a long 8 months due to unforeseen holdups with solicitors. Arrangement to bring out of storage again achieved smoothly.
 
Cost: £3700
 

"Removers arrived on time were friendly and helpful they worked cohesively.

The move was achieved quickly with the minimum of fuss.

Not the cheapest but certainly not the most expensive you get what you pay for.
I would recommend to anyone.

Approximately £1500.00 removals and delayed delivery. + £2200.00 storage

Thank you all at Herbert Davis Removals."
