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."

Customer Review
 
Hi We were downsizing and moving from a 5 bed to a semi detached 4 bed. The lads completely ‘got it’. 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."

The lads worked extremely hard to make sure the move went smoothly. Excellent service would always recommend Herbert Davies Removals

"Very organised and methodical so cleaning could be done behind them without getting in each other’s way. Great care was taken with items especially mirrored furniture and glass items. Appropriate covers and stacking was followed to ensure no damages even when some items proved a challenge size wise for doorways. Excellent service and would always recommend."

Move from a first floor flat above our shop and transport into storage until completion on new property. Move from storage to our new address 90 miles away. Beds and sofas to be dismantled and rebuilt on delivery. Part pack only - kitchen / dining room.
 
Cost: £2400
 

"Herbert Davis were superb in all aspects from start to finish - I can't praise them enough.
Andy and all of his team took a lot of care packing and unpacking and put all of the items and boxes exactly where we wanted them. They were incredibly polite and put down protection to save mud and dirt from coming into the properties.
The quality of packing was very good indeed. Loads of protective paper and boxes not over packed... a few extra boxes ensured that not a single item was broken or damaged.
Kathy in the office was also very helpful in coordinating collection and delivery times.

Customer Review
 
The move was from a large 5/6 reception room house to a much smaller house. We chose the full packing service.

"We couldn't have been happier with the service we received from Herbert Davis Removals (Britannia). From the moment the movers arrived on site, they couldn't have been more reassuring or thoughtful - this is priceless at a point where you're feeling a little tired and stressed! They were very efficient, packing all our belongings very carefully and checking anything they were unsure about as they packed. They managed to reassemble some very challenging furniture perfectly, and were very helpful throughout the whole process of unloading and getting all our belongings to the correct rooms and outbuildings. They were a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone considering a move. And would definitely recommend the packing service - it's a lifesaver!"

We used Herbert Davis when we moved home in September, it was a 4 day job for a 5 bed house, approx 4,000 sq.ft.
 
Cost: £6000
 

"Andy and his team were professional, helpful, incredibly hard working and always reassuring. We couldn't recommend them highly enough. Everything arrived safely and in one piece, as the packing was second to none. We're so glad we used HD's services and, should we move again, we would 100% use them again. 10 out of 10!!!"

Customer Review
 
This move was a normal move for us having moved 6 times in the last 20 years and the last 4 moves have been carried out by Herbert Davis. Nothing really exciting about the contents apart from the piano, a very heavy old B&O Television, lots of boxes and moving into a 3 storey house Basically, we were moving from a 4 bedroomed detached 2 storey house to a 5 bedroomed detavhed house on 3 storeys.....
 
Cost: £2100
 

"So as we have always used the Herbert Davis packing service, the move happens over 2 days….pack & move!
Simon and Zack arrived bright and early on the packing day and we shared stories of the last time they moved us….6 years ago and Simon was part of that team then.
Basically Simon asked us to go around each room and tell him and Zack was not being moved (i.e. we were moving those things) and explain the schematic of which room in the old house related to what room in the new house. He also asked the layout of the new house, parking, access etc.
Nothing was too much trouble for them and they finished late afternoon.
So moving day……

Again the team of Simon, Zack, Ian and Scott arrived early around 8am with a fleet of varying size vehicles to accommodate all varieties of boxes, furniture and garden equipment/plants.

It is amazing how the jigsaw gets finished within a reasonable amount of time without stress to the customers.

Even when our purchasers vans arrived Simon made sure that they knew they had to wait and ensured we didn’t stress about this.

By around 2.30pm, we were set to go….all systems go!

Again when we arrived at our new property, the whole team sprang into action and just got on with it. It rained for the last hour but the team kept focused and finished the job in super quick time without any damages to either the items being moved, nor the new property.

Our thanks go out to the whole team ably led by Simon.

We would recommend Herbert Davies to anyone and should we move again we will have no hesitation in using you…..thank you again.

My whole move went extremely well and was well organised in advance.
 
Cost: £3500
 

"I moved from Gloucestershire, England to Perthshire, Scotland and the whole move from start to finish could not have been better. Simon, the driver with the help of Zak were both extremely polite and very helpful. Simon met us in Scotland the following morning and with the help of a colleague from a local depot, everything was taken off the vehicle and put in the right place. I am very pleased to say, nothing was broken or damaged which was excellent compared with past experiences of other removal companies. I would definitely use this firm again and highly recommend them."

We packed most of the items to be removed ourselves with the exception of the pictures mirrors and the wardrobe hanging content which the guys took care of for us. The move was house to house with only about 3 miles in between locations.
