Move of all items from a large 2 bedroom flat, situated on 2nd and 3rd floor in London. Removal including full packing service, including dismantling and reassembling of furniture.

"The end to end service we received from Herbert Davis was absolutely excellent. I had no idea that moving house could be this stress free! The initiation of the process was smooth, a quote was provided very quickly after submitting details of our flat and contents. Price very competitive vs. other quotes I had and was fully inclusive of liability insurance and packing service, making it easier to understand than some other quotes.

On the first day of the move the packing team arrived early in the morning (despite travelling from Gloucester to London). That day I couldn't believe how quickly and efficiently they packed our home - ~80% of it was packed and loaded onto the van on the first day, including dismantling some major items of furniture (beds, tables, wardrobes) and carrying things down multiple flights of stairs. The packing was very thorough, with any breakable items well wrapped. On the other side, boxes were easy to unpack and items easily findable.

The second day (move day) was also extremely smooth, with the van fully loaded by 10am. At our new house, the guys worked very quickly to unload all of our contents as well as reassemble furniture and help move it to the exact location we wanted in the house.


The whole service was incredible value for money (they did in two days what would have taken me weeks!) and the team were brilliant - friendly, professional and efficient. Will definitely be using them for my next month and would recommend them to anyone.

Long distance move over 2 days from storage unit to residential property.

"From our initial approach asking for a quote the company was very helpful and patient answering all our questions/queries we had. They were very accommodating of specific requests we had with regards timing. The price for the move was very competitive.
The actual move was painless and stress free! The company has a 'can do' attitude and nothing was a problem. All the staff were polite and friendly and the loading and unloading was very fast and efficient.

Move from 5 bedroom to 2 bedroom house
 
Cost: £1950
 

"Herbert Davis Removals did a fantastic job of moving my parents from a 5-bedroom to a 2-bedroom house just after lockdown had been lifted in August 2020. They helped with packing, moved very many boxes carefully and cheerfully - down an unexpectedly steep drive and an awkward lane, which they saw for the first time on the day - and they made a stressful time seem as easy as it possibly could. All the staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. The office staff put our minds at rest regarding COVID-19 precautions and were careful to describe their procedures on the phone in detail.

We recommend the team highly!"

Customer Review
 
Moved from London into store in Gloucester for a few weeks before finally moving furniture from store to Cheltenham home. Removers were very accomodating, quoting on basis of videocall and then managing to arrive in London, pack contents of 4 bed house and return to Gloucester all in one day. Were then happy for me to arrange my own van to move contents out of store in a relaxed way over a couple of days.
 
Cost: £2000
 

"Very accomodating. Their diary was tight as lockdown had just been lifted, but managed to find me a day for my move and then drove from Gloucester to London, packed 4 bed house and drove back to Gloucester all in one day.
Packing and removals team were great to have around and were very reassuring and dealt with the packing and loading without any fuss. All boxes well labelled and contents of containers well listed.
Furniture went into store for 4 weeks.
Because my brother was used to driving a van, we then decided to hire our own Luton van (with tailgate) and move the furniture into final location in a relaxed way over a couple of days. This was fine for the removers and they arranged to be available to move the relevant containers in their warehouse and make them available at times convenient to us.
No breakages at all and everything went very smoothly. Everyone was extremely courteous and helpful throughout."

We moved a distance of approx 8miles.the 2vans arrived promptly,the moving man walked through the house and garden checking what was to move and what to stay.after that it all went very smoothly and quickly .at the new house the furniture and garden items were all quickly and efficiently placed in the correct places .we had a lot of garden pots and 2large plants but no complaints .
 
Cost: £800
 

"I wasn’t really sure what to expect and was a little nervous due to COVID .however the workers were at easy and reassured me by there comments and actions .they were obviously very experienced movers and nothing surprised or bothered them. The day went well with no real issues .they did bring packing wardrobes but I had emptied wardrobes into boxes and suitcases.we had to empty the filing cabinet whic was upstairs and to heavy to carry downstairs .at the new house they were extremely cooperative and helpful in putting items in the correct places .would recommend ."

Customer Review
 
We move from the center of Cheltenham to 6 miles away, the move involved 3 lorries and 4 men who were excellent. A move without damage which was carried out on time, with humor and loads of care and attention. Andy and his team were exceptional and I would recommend them to others plus I would use Herbert Davis again.
 
Cost: £1860
 

"Our whole experience was of the highest quality, we were uncertain as we had not moved house for 37 years. We collated several estimates from different companies and the quotations varied considerably. Herbert Davis was not the cheapest but the cheapest is not always the way to go. I comes down to (feel) how you feel about the people you deal with, the cleanliness of their vehicles, their presentation and their manner.
Herbert Davis ticked just about all the boxes so in our view they were the company that will look after us and our property the best.
They were efficient, polite, presentable and considerate."

Our move was particularly difficult. The Cottage we vacated had 49 steps to negotiate to the removal van and with very heavy furniture. The removers were jolly, friendly professional and not once was there a moan about their difficult task. I would thoroughly recommend Herbert Davis. The whole move took two days. The removal date had to be changed several times by us, but this was accommodated.
 
Cost: £1500
 

"Herbert Davis removals has been recommended to us as a company that was sympathetic to the difficulties of moving from a difficult site. All our worries about the problems of moving heavy furniture up many steps to the road evaporated on our first meeting and assessment. We were happy with the quotation. Throughout the move we were confident our furniture and belongings were treated with respect, including two fragile clocks. Boxes were delivered well in time for unstressed packing. The two removal preppie were professional and pleasant, and very hard working. Although our furniture was heavy to negotiate, I was never aware of any complaint. Any furniture which needed to be collapsed was done for us and put back together in our new flat."

We moved stuff over two days and planned to leave a lot behind so i can sort later. I am moving my mother to a new house near me and she has been in her old house for many years.

"Everyone was brilliant. I was really impressed and happy with the service.

One piece of furniture was damaged and I am not sure how I am going to deal with that but the people concerned dealt with the situation transparently in the moment."

Packing a 3 storey, 4 bed house moving 250 miles.

"Before:
When I first started looking for a removal company I will admit I wasn't too sure about Herbert Davies. Our chain then started going a bit crazy and the dates changed and Herbert Davies went out of their way to try and accommodate us before Christmas even though it would have been difficult. We didnt end up moving and throughout January our date kept changing and Herbert Davies were the ONLY ones that tried to accommodate us each time and remained friendly and welcoming. We knew they were the only ones we wanted to use and frankly there are a number of removal companies in Gloucester that could learn a thing or two about customer service from HD.

The Move itself:
If I could sum it all up in one word it would probably be wow. We had arranged for HD to pack for us too. So the day before Paul came out to pack, on his own, a 4 bed 3 storey house and garage that is very full of stuff! The challenge was huge but Paul was amazing and incredibly efficient getting everything packed and sorted in quite an amazing speed.

The next day he loaded with Ian, drove 250 miles and unloaded a good portion of stuff whilst still remaining polite, professional, friendly and welcoming. We really cannot rate or speak highly enough about him. He made a huge move completely stress free and easy. Our move has provided headaches and woe in every other sense so expectations were low but I really cannot fault or thank Paul or Herbert davies enough.

Paul is (too quote our Mum) definitely a man who leaves an impression on you and Herbert Davies are incredibly incredibly lucky to have him!"
