The move took me from one side of the country to the other, approximately 240 miles distance. Usual furniture, some quite large bits and a few access challenges.

"A very stress free experience. From collecting the contents of my house, taking it to storage for a short period, and then getting up at 5am to make the trip across the country and deliver the furniture to it's destination, unpack, pop everything in the relevant rooms, and then make the 240 mile trip back. Helpful, friendly, communicative - all in all, a great experience. Have used Banbury's for the past 15 or so years with relevant moves, and would 100% use again."

Customer Review
 
We moved from a house to a bungalow and had not moved for over 20 years so decided to take advantage of Banbury packing service. We did pack some ourselves and have to say that the service was quick and efficient. Any instruction given was carried out and we felt all our stress just melt away.

"My wife chose Banbury because they are a family run firm and local. They are part of my wife`s childhood memories and have weathered many changes in the economy, which shows that they are aware of what prospective customers expect.

We can highly recommend Banburys for their efficiency, clarity and politeness.

As the removal lorry was blocking the drive of our neighbour, one of the team even went to let them know that if they needed to get out then the tail gate would be lifted, which we thought was a professional thing to do.
The covering of sofas and mattresses was highly appreciated.

The team all worked very hard and even though we were under Covid restrictions we felt quite safe. On the whole we can`t recommend them highly enough."
 
 
Team:
Josh and Dean although 3 others turned up to help but don`t remember their names unfortunately. Also John who came to do the survey on our move

Excellent service..... my furniture plus, went into Banbury’s Storage, did not envisage it being there for nearly 8 months,

"Delivered to my new abode, all in perfect condition, have unpacked the boxes, 95%, nothing broken.
The guys who carried everything out last August were helpful, friendly, as were the ones who delivered it all back, being as courteous and helpful as Covid-19 restrictions would allow."

Moved during lockdown
 
Cost: £864
 

"Went very smoothly and they were incredibly helpful throughout - would not hesitate in recommending them.
Everything wrapped up perfectly and no casualties!
They were excellent throughout. Not a single complaint or moan about their service and they really helped the stress levels of the move. Found them totally reliable and staff very helful and friendly.

Customer Review
 
Move an upright piano from North Devon to Bristol.
 
Cost: £300
 

"Quick response to email following a face-to-face visit at their depot.
Good communication throughout.
On-time to collect, bar 10 mins so no problem. 3 men involved.
Piano collected from level hallway but concerned it was not wrapped in house.
Assured the piano would be wrapped on board the lorry.

The delivery location had some difficult sideway angles to manoeuvre around to the back of the house and up to house via decking steps which did not cause them any problems.
Recipient says they were quick, efficient and courteous.
Piano arrived without a scratch.

Overall: would fully recommend Banburys for moving a piano to another home. Nice people to deal with throughout and will use them again,if needed."

Removal to storage involved manhandling furniture some 50 metres up a steep path and drive whilst the delivery from storage was to a 3 storey property with a twisting staircase. .

"Both the moving to storage and the later return from storage were executed in an impeccable manner.

Despite the return being required during 'lockdown' conditions, punctuality, handling and customer care were, as always, exceptional."

Having moved from a larger property and down sized to a smaller one had many problems.
 
Cost: £1700
 

"The service provided was excellent. The staff were very professional and had a pleasant manner.

We had about eighty containers plus furniture, paintings and several mirror's.They managed to fit all this into a double garage!The move was over three days Monday to pack Tuesday completion Wednesday to unload.

All done with the minimum of fuss.We elected to do our own packing due to the volume of contents."

Customer Review
 
A three day move over 215 miles
 
Cost: £2000
 

"Banburys were by far the best quote for a three day move and we had a fair amount of stuff to move. John the manager gave a very professional inspection and an accurate assessment of the number of boxes required. On dayone, which was of course very stressful due to Covid, the two removers arrived and worked hard to load the bulk of our goods. They returned the following morning to load the rest and transport over 215 miles. On arrival I requested that they get as much stuff off as possible as we had an elderly relative with us who would need to go to bed early. The men were very good and worked into the evening, slept over night in the lorry and left early next day.

Overall a very good move. We're still unpacking and so far only one small item is missing, presumed lost. Only one issue that I would point out is that for speed, the men carried large pieces of furniture without taking out the heavily laden drawers. One item in particular is not the best constructed piece of furniture in the world and the resulting stresses have made the carcass very flexible. In fairness, they worked hard and I can see why they do that, particularly as I asked for most thigs off at the other end, but It's a point be mindful of.

I would definitely use them again."

Banburys moved my wife and I''s furniture and effects from a 4 bedroom house to a 3 bedroom bungalow so quite a downsize. The distance moved was only 4 miles so they used a small lorry and the 3 young men did 4 shuttle loads which made parking at both properties much easier and more convenient all round.

"John, the manager visited us and gave us a quote which we were happy to accept as the firm had moved for my mother 5 years ago and did a good job then. John explained the process for us very well and was very courteous and polite.The firm were happy to supply as many boxes and wrapping materials as we needed prior to the move. Fixing the date was tricky for us as our buyers kept postponing completion so the move date was rearranged 3 times. John was always understanding and very accommodating about this as it must have been just as frustrating for him as it was for us.He went out of his way to oblige despite the fact that the firm was very busy at the time.
On the day of the move the 3 young men arrived promptly and were very efficient and careful in handling all the items. We were very pleased with the whole of the firm's service from start to finish and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone."

Moving out of old home, into storage, then into new home.

"The original removers we were going to use were unable to meet the timescale insisted on by our buyers. In desperation, and so as not to lose our purchasers, we contacted other companies but no-one could help until we arrived at Banbury’s. They told us they were extremely busy but would do everything in their power to help. And they did! John worked out a way to fit us in with their busy schedule and moved us out on time and into storage.

A provisional date was made to move us into our new home, but building delays and covid 19 self isolation, meant that the date was moved three times. Throughout this very difficult and stressful time John and Adrian were always positive with a “can do” attitude.

We cannot praise Banbury’s enough, from our initial contact through to the care shown by the men actually moving our furniture."

We moved from a one bedroom apartment to a two bedroom bungalow five miles away. Our china/ glassware was packed for us and portable wardrobes were provided for our hanging garments.

"The Removal team arrived on time and were very efficient and considerate. We were successfully moved into our new home within a few hours.

A few days before our removal we received a reassuring phone call that our move would go ahead despite it being the first day of 'lockdown'.

The whole procedure from the first enquiry to the completion of our move was dealt with very professionally by a local company and we would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone."

We moved from a large farmhouse to a much smaller new build. Between our exchange of contracts and completion on the new house the developers experienced a snag so we suddenly had to get everything ready to go into store. Banbury’s took this in their stride and both days went well.
 
Cost: £1700
 

"John Gage was very helpful in discussing the type of service we required, and taking into account the fact that we lived in a narrow lane in a rural location.
A problem arose between exchange and completion of our new property, so at short notice, we had to replan to put our effects into storage. Banbury’s took this in their stride and adjusted the move and were very helpful in the changes.
The guys who came very pleasant and helpful and mindful of social distancing etc.
Overall we were very pleased with their service.

Moving from one remote location to another with some very narrow and difficult roads at the Exmoor end. The move day was further complicated by several road closures due to accidents and road works entailing long and difficult diversions. Despite this the team turned up in good humour and got straight to work. Could not fault the whole process which happened exactly as promised and was very competitively priced. It''s would have no hesitation in recommending Banburys.
 
Cost: £1400
 

"Great team, friendly, easy to deal with, hard working,made what looked like a complicated job seem very simple.They looked after our possessions and looked after the buildings at both ends of the move.

Having helped move them I think it's clear we over packed the boxes (the guys confirmed this !) This was despite being careful, or so we thought, when filling them. There was a guide weight given but it quite hard to judge it especially when trying to stop things moving about. With hindsight a simple solution would be to stand the boxes on some bathroom scales. We just didn't think about it."

We moved 300 miles and needed a removal service as well as clean secure storage until our new property was ready. Part of the move process involved limited access for large vehicles.

"We moved 300 miles and wanted a company that could move our belongings in to storage and keep it safe until our new home was ready to move in. I did the research and there were lots of companies who quoted and they all expected my business with an attitude of 'they are doing me a favour'.

When I contacted Banburys I was asked what I wanted and they listened. John at the company answered all my questions and provided me with details of how it would all work and what would happen if I chose to use them.

Everything has gone very smoothly with regular contact and updates from Banburys. The massive positive I found with Banburys is that they provided me with a nationwide level of service with a local friendly and helpful customer service.
I would highly recommend to all."

We had a split move, one person to one location and then two people to a completely different location. Two moves on two days, and one complete packing and storage facility. Despite it being a bit complicated in terms of personal circumstances Banbury actually made it quite simple and easy to cope with. All the Banbury men were professional, polite and efficient. They worked swiftly and by lunchtime the first move was done and on its way. The packing was done and then all the storage items were packed into the crates. Fantastic - by the end of day one one move completed and the second well on its way. Day two was again swiftly and professionally completed and we were on our way just after lunchtime. The result was brilliant.
 
Cost: £1650
 

"We used Banbury because we have used them before for two separate moves. One was local but the other was from Kent to Devon. Because of our great experience and Banbury being so professional and efficient, plus brilliant value for money it was a no brainer so they say. They did everything they said they would do, and more. They were efficient, professional, polite and really nice people. We felt they were trustworthy with our treasured possessions and would highly recommend Banburys to anyone."

They arrived when they said they would and put covers in the hall and up the stairs and sitting room. They were very polite and efficient. They sorted out a big mirror I had forgotten to wrap and the television. All my pots of plants I wanted to take were put on the van. It was a two day removal and they arrived the next morning early to unpack the van. It did not take as long as expected. They also took my bed frame to pieces and then put it back together at the new house. They were careful and no damage or breakages. I was very pleased with the service received.
 
Cost: £1398
 

"As just said very efficient and professional arrived when stated and the whole move went smoothly and pack up the house quicker than expected.
Nothing was damaged or broken.
They were much cheaper than other estimates I had and included packing materials when other firms did not.

They also did not use bubble wrap as plastic and provided paper instead."
