I moved from my house on 27th and 28th January 2021. The first date was used for packing ready for storage and the second to remove other larger items. I then moved into my new property on 10th April. Everything went smoothly and the removal men were so helpful, polite and cheerful.

"As I have mentioned, the removal men involved were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. I also had to change the dates of moving several times and the company was very accommodating and helpful in that respect too.

Perhaps it would be helpful if items such as remote controls etc could be placed in a small specially labelled bag."

We moved from Witney, Oxfordshire to Yorkley Wood, Gloucestershire.
 
Cost: £2760
 

"The four guys Paul, Zak, Simon and Ian arrived on time and were great. They worked very hard to make the move a much less stressful event. The Luton van was used to bring our essentials on the day, then again the next day transporting four further loads (transship) from the big lorry due to access restrictions to the new home.
The whole team couldn’t do enough for us, from the quotation, removal dates, and taking into account our requirements which weren’t straightforward.
The quote I had was very reasonable especially with travelling and amount of stuff we had to move.

Would 100% recommend HD removals to anyone."

Customer Review
 
We were moving from a five bed house which should have been a straightforward removal but we have a lot of specialist gym equipment which is both heavy and unique in size and shape.
 
Cost: £1400
 

"The quote was fast and took into consideration our unique gym equipment. Correspondence was good and timely between us and the company. We had a number of issues with our purchase that might have impacted the removals but it was easy to talk things through with Kathy and ensure that we knew our options throughout.

On the day the guys turned up nice and early and quickly got to work. They were all incredibly friendly, professional and efficient and when it came to moving our specialist equipment they just cracked on with it. We realise now that it was something they hadn’t come across before and the amount of weight involved meant they had to be more careful which obviously took extra time but despite this they took few breaks, got everything on the lorry and got it all into the new house as fast as they safely could. We really appreciated the hard work they put in on the day."
 
 
Team:
An awesome removals team

Move from 5 bed detached to a 2 bed detached over 70 miles away.
 
Cost: £950
 

"The crew arrived early and had the whole house packed within 2 hours. Advised us of a major road closure, but successfully navigated around it. Arrived to find they’d gotten there before us and had already got cars moved to give access to the new property.

All finished to our complete satisfaction. Friendly, efficient service executed with good humour. Have no hesitation recommending the company."

Customer Review
 
We chose the full packing service and couldn''t be more pleased not having used removal firms previously.
 
Cost: £3400
 

"We decided to use a removal company for the first time and were not disappointed with Herbert Davis Removals. We had to arrange our move in a very short time period (to fit in with a rental and our buyers) and Herbert Davis were very accommodating, sorting out a 3 day plan the week before our completion date to suit our needs. They were willing to help us and we felt they cared about our situation.
The administration team were friendly and efficient from start to finish, from detailing the service and costs to the schedule of events and calls to check on the current COVID measures required.
The removal team arrived on time and we found all of them polite, courteous and friendly. We felt they cared about our needs and we weren't just another job to them. They often asked questions during their time with us, for example where did we want certain items put, did we have our overnight bag full of our essentials during the move and made recommendations where needed. We trusted the team fully.
The loading of our possessions was conducted with care and precision and we were impressed with the overall team work and professionalism.
The unloading was speedy and well thought out. Again the team worked with us to check where we wanted items put, particulary as we were moving to a much smaller property and probably had too many possessions!
The team were also aware of the surroundings, for example protecting carpets with plastic film and considering where they parked during the removal as to not to annoy neighbours or road users."

We were downsizing from a 5 bedroom to a 3 bedroom property, some 2 hours drive away. We initially obtained 3 quotes from removal firms, although we had been recommended to use Britannia by my sister. All quotes were on a par, price wise. However the advise and suggestions given by Andy went a long way to us making our final choice.
 
Cost: £3000
 

"The actual move couldn’t have been done more professionally. The men were careful but quick and very organised. They were helpful, courteous and full of constructive ideas. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them."
 
 
Team:
Paul, Simon,Lee plus two very tall young guys.

Customer Review
 
This move involved the whole contents of a four bedroom house over a distance of 180 miles and taking two days. It was further complicated by access for large vehicles at the destination. Added to this were complications caused by problems in the long chain and that by Covid 19 lockdown restrictions. This meant that from the time that we contracted to this company to the time of the actual move ended up as 5 months. We carried out packing ourselves with materials supplied by the company.
 
Cost: £2900
 

"At the time that we contracted this company they supplied a number of various sized boxes and tape included in the cost. Bubble wrap and paper was extra but not exhorbitant. We made a tentative date but had to cancel this due to issues within the chain. This happened on approximately 5 occasions. At all stages the Staff in the office were helpful and understanding and even supplied extra boxes at one stage to assist with our packing.

On the day of the move they supplied two smaller vehicles due to access at the destination with a driver each and another member of staff in a van due to Covid 19 restrictions that all arrived at the promised time. The crew were polite, well presented and always willing to go the extra mile for us especially with some rather large pot plants and pictures. Pictures mirrors and TVs were wrapped in copious quantities of blankets. They were virtually running when loading the vehicles and ready to leave by lunch time. They asked if it would be possible to start unloading that afternoon/evening if there were no holdups on the road. We agreed and as a result one vehicle was unloaded by that evening.

The next day they were at the destination with the second vehicle and it was then that we realised that the third member of the team had not travelled to the destination but a porter from the local Britannia franchise had arrived to assist the unloading. Once again the team set to and were virually running as well as asking us where we wanted various items. By lunch time they were finished and on their way home.

A move that had seemed so awful with delays etc ended up as what could only be described as fairly untraumatic and extremely professional. We would definitely consider using them again if we were to consider moving back again."

"Due to covid we had a video call with Andy so I could show him around my property and he could asses what needed to be done and give us a quote. The quote came through the following day and I accepted it as his price was cheaper than the other two quotes I had but most of all I got a good feeling about Andy and the company Herbert's.
Herbert's called the day before my move and talked me through the covid rules they have in place for their workers which were fine.
On the day Andy and his guys turned up at about 8 am and made a start on loading up and I must say they worked like troopers and we're very professional taking good care of our property. The loading and unloading of our property was carried out in a very professional and efficient manner and I would not hesitate to recommend Herbert's removals company to anyone wishing to move
I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff at Herbert's removals and nothing was damaged or broken during the move
I would give 10 out of 10 thank you so much for making it a stress free move"

We moved from Gloucester to London just after Christmas.
 
Cost: £1900
 

"We used Herbert Davies for a move 6 years ago and were so pleased with their work that we used them again for our move to London, just after Christmas. They were fantastic. Punctual, efficient, helpful and willing to go the extra mile. We moved at a very stressful time, during the increase in infections of COVID. London was in Tier 4 but they were so good at keeping everything relaxed and easy. Nothing was too much trouble for them on a very long and tiring day. Thank you so much. Here's to the next move..."

We moved from a 2 Storey 3 bed house to a 5 bed 4 Storey house
 
Cost: £900
 

"Paul, Ian and Andy who moved us were amazing, they made the whole process so easy and not stressful at all. The speed at which they had the lorry loaded and the manner in which they went about it was incredible.

They were all very personable and professional and clearly very knowledgeable in their jobs.

At the other end the way in which they went about unloading our possessions was again with care and diligence and despite moving from a 2 storey house to a 4 storey house they put all the boxes and furniture in the requested rooms.

I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone and the 3 guys mentioned above are a huge credit to your company."

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.
