Packing and removals from a 2 bed, first floor, flat to a 4 bed, 3 storey, townhouse in the same city.
 
Cost: £1100
 

"The removals team from J&J Howe were excellent throughout our experience. Everything from sizing up the job, telephone queries, early drop off of boxes and then the move itself. The team started packing the day before our move and completed the morning of the move. The actual move was quick, efficient and very professional.

No breakages, everything made its way across to our new home. Couldn't ask for more"

We moved from a four bedroom bungalow in Highland Perthshire to fifty miles away near Kinross to a 5 bedroom bungalow.

"From the start I was impressed, I had gotten a couple of quotes from other companies but I didn't feel 100% confident in them, when Howe's came out to look at what they had to move I instantly felt at ease.

I was contacted about a week beforehand to let me know what time they would arrived along with all the do's and don'ts and COVID procedures.

On the day of the move the smaller van turned up first with two lovely guys and they made quick work of emptying the garage. They were joined not long after buy the big truck with two more equally lovely guys and they started on the house. They made sure to walk around the house and garden to check what we were taking with us. They quickly emptied the house and it took just under three hours.

At the other end they were able to unload our garden bits and bobs whilst we got the keys and after that they quickly unloaded both van and truck, everything was in perfect condition.

My husband and I were over the moon with the service, it made a very stressful day so much better and I was happy with the great care the guys took with our possessions. I'm not planning on moving ever again but if it does happen I'll definitely come back to Howe's.

I have nothing negative at all to say but when I was searching for removal companies they didn't come up straight away for the area when I did my web search - maybe a wee bit of SEO tweaking is required.

"

Moving from a fully furnished 3 bed home, with a full loft and significant amount of garden furniture. Also included a full dismantle & rebuild service of beds & sofas.
 
Cost: £816
 

"We were really pleased with the whole experience of moving with J&J Howe. Mike came to the house whilst observing good social distance protocols and gave us an incredibly competitive quote, nobody else was close to be honest so we chose to proceed with them as our removal company. They provided all boxes and tape for us for packing and they offered to help with the pack. We annoyingly had a last minute change to our moving date only a few days in advance which amazingly they accommodated with no grumbles which took away a lot of stress for us. On the day of the move we had 3 men who were all very efficient, polite, cheerful and hard working. We even managed to head out and have some breakfast after witnessing how careful & considered they were in removing our possessions. They made sure that the boxes and items were delivered to the right room in the house we moved into. We had no breakages whatsoever and overall they provided a very professional service that did really take a lot of the stress out of moving house.

I have & would highly recommend anyone to use them - money well spent in my opinion.

We moved 70 miles from a three bed to a four bed house. Was impressed with the speed and care taken by the team. They dismantled and reconstructed our reclining corner couch for us. The precision taken getting double beds up the stairs and along a narrow hall have to be commended too!
 
Cost: £800
 

"Rebecca and I would like to pass on our thanks to Don and Dan for their hard work on Wednesday and getting us moved into our new house!

The guys were brilliant, really quick! And I learnt a few things from Don and his random facts!

Brilliant service all round, can’t thank you all enough.

We had been in a temporary house while waiting for our own one to complete, and J & J Howe carried out our move both in to the temporary house, and then into our permanent one.
 
Cost: £1125
 

"We were very happy with both moves but particularly with our second one, where the major complication is that a significant amount of our office and other furniture could only be reached by climbing a loft ladder. The Howes team had to get tables, filing cabinets and a range of other items up the ladder and what impressed us was not only the great efficiency with which they got things done, but the cheerful and helpful way they did it, which we felt was well above the strict line of duty and it made things much easier for us. We would certainly recommend J & J Howe to anyone looking for excellent service."

We ended up swapping our house for another couple’s house, only about half a mile away. So, co-ordinating the move was important. We were downsizing from a three storey, 5 bedroom house to a two storey four bedroom - not obviously a big change, but the available social spaces were much more to our liking.
 
Cost: £1240
 

"We were not looking forward to this move at all. We are v active but ‘senior’ citizens and hadn’t moved for 17 years. However, Howe’s men made the experience entirely stress free, pretty much enjoyable, in fact. They arrived promptly, with sufficient manpower and vans, and got to work immediately with purpose and efficiency, but never rushing us. They were relaxed and personable, which made us relax - we were confident to let the men get on with the work without ever having to chase after them. On the other hand, the men always asked if there was anything to be cleared up. We got into the new house v quickly, while the other couple were in a mess with the company which was moving them. ‘Our’ men even helped the others (though they were privately very annoyed at the lack of professionalism of the other firm).

We’re settled in now, v happy in our new home, and v grateful to the men who got us here."

Moving home from Scotland, after 26 years, to the West Country to start running a Guest House
 
Cost: £5100
 

"J & J Howe were the only company (we obtained 3 other quotations) who came in person. We appreciate the current circumstances make this difficult but our move was a major event in our lives and we needed to feel confident this was going to be handled professionally.

The quotation visit left us feeling we were in very good hands and we felt the estimator knew exactly what he was talking about.
When the quotation arrived, it was competitive and very detailed.
Once we accepted, we requested some boxes to start packing and these were provided quickly. Later we also needed some additional bubble wrap and, again, this was supplied quickly.

On the day of the move, the team turned up with two vans at the agreed time. Everyone was extremely helpful & pleasant. The process ran very smoothly and they were away by 3pm.

When the team arrived at the destination, they were again very professional, helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

Everyone we dealt with was a credit to the company and we would have no hesitation recommending them to anyone.
A big thank you to all involved."

The morning of the move there was snow on the ground and having a steep driveway I was very concerned for the men and my furniture. However, the removal men went and got grit, and then covered the floor and stairs inside the house to avoid bringing in muck. They worked steadily throughout the day, always being courteous and taking care of my possessions. I did my own packing and was given boxes and paper well ahead of time so didn''t feel rushed. When we arrived at my new accommodation the men were polite and considerate with my new neighbours, making sure not to antagonise and checking where was a suitable place to park their lorry.
 
Cost: £720
 

"Having lived in what was the family home for 43 years I decided it was time to downsize. I had been left a widow and the children had left home a number of years previously. This was not an easy decision as my husband and son both had hoarding tendencies. However, I found J & J Howe staff supportive at all times, nothing was a problem. Items I did not want to take they offered to take to auction or recycle. Gave good advice about not making rash decisions to dispose of items I was unsure of - ie they could be disposed of at a later date. Best of all their price was competitive with other local firms. On the day, the removal men were punctual and courteous throughout. Put items in the appropriate rooms and even in the desired position. Thank you for making this an excellent decision."

We were downsizing from a spacious 4 bedroom villa to a smaller 2 bedroom bungalow. We were sending several items of furniture surplus to requirements to be Auctioned. The garage and hut were cleared also.
 
Cost: £1000
 

"Van arrived in good time, furniture and boxes were stacked in van, all going according to plan. The van was parked at the new house by 12.20 but although all moneys were settled, the keys were not forthcoming till 4.15pm.
The firm sent out extra help and the furniture was placed in the new house promptly. Fortunately we had paid the Late Arrival Insurance Premium.

No more to add except that we were completely satisfied with the whole arrangement and outcome, except for the late arrival of the keys which was outwith our power.

The men were courteous and helpful and patient throughout.

Thank you,

Isobel and Jim

A short move of 5 miles down the road.

"The team made a stressful situation easy and as stress free as possible. They turned up within an hour of their stated time, which was fine given the distance they had to come. They worked hard and were polite and friendly. Asking if not sure what was staying and what was going.
Unpacking at my new home they worked hard and were finished well on time.
I can highly recommend them"

The move was a 3 bedroom house from West London to just outside of Perth. No problems. Timings were spot on and loaded efficiently
 
Cost: £2600
 

"The two removals gents were perfect.

They worked non stop yet and also had the can do attitude.

First load from storage unit, dealt with quickly and securely

Day of move was painless and swift.

The move was a 3 bedroom house from West London to just outside Perth.

There was a susbstantial sized motorbike to move which was loaded safely and securely onto lorry.
No problems.

Cannot recommend these two men highly enough. I hope they get rewarded by company accordingly.

Mike who coordinated move was very very good and communication excellent

Many thanks"
