Customer Review
 
We asked MJ Christophers to move all our belongings whilst we were 12,000 miles away in Australia, A family friend offered to manage this but without the skill and professionalism of MJ Christopher this would have easily gone wrong. The move involved involved collecting items from 3 garages and a house in Cambridge and taking to storage in Cornwall. It also involved sorting boxes into house and garden/garage and storing them in different spaces on site. Finally access was tight and negotiation with neighbours was complicated.
 
Cost: £2400
 

"MJ Christopher did a fabulous job and kept us informed through out.

We are so pleased to have chosen a local Cornish firm and felt we got a personal service throughout.

this firm were absolutely brilliant. On time at every stage, polite, efficient and organised. Our property was well cared for and stored away again properly.

We are delighted to recommend MJ Christopher.

Ian and Anne"

Customer Review
 
Moved a 3 bed house from Camelford to Penryn. Small cul de sac in Penryn. I packed myself but my property was handled with great care and professionalism at all times. Any time I contacted the office with a question or concern prior to moving I was always answered quickly and satisfactorily.
 
Cost: £752
 

"I would not hesitate to recommend MJ Christopher removals, yes you can get cheaper but you honestly get what you pay for and these guys were amazing from start to finish, nothing was too much trouble even when we had a hold up at the new property due to the previous tenant not having left in the agreed time the guys were patient and accommodating.
Cant thank the company enough, and not one breakage of any sort and no damage to any of the items that were moved.

My wife and I moved from Cornwall to Suffolk, and owing to job start dates, had to travel up at different times. The destination also presented some difficulties as the access was restricted.
 
Cost: £1987
 

"We couldn't be happier with the move. The removal crew were flexible and professional, and we would happily recommend this firm to others."

The men arrived punctually and carried out the move of our belongings in a professional manner. The mattresses were protected with covers and every item of furniture was loaded with care. The man were very friendly with a sense of humour which was needed in this stressful situation!

"My husband and I were really impressed with this company and wanted to choose someone who was local to us. They arived punctually and loaded all of our treasured items with great care. The two men, who were brothers were great fun and took all of the stress out of the situation for us.They protected items with blankets and covers and packed them all carefully onto their van. We mislaid a small item from a TV and they searched their van and managed to retrieve it for us, nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely recommend this company to other people."
 
 
Team:
I can`t remember now, but they were brothers and one of them was celebrating his birthday on the day we moved, which was the same day as my husbands!

We moved from a 4 bed house to a 3 bed bungalow - no specialist items.

"They were extremely polite and helpful, from office support, removal team and owner.

We moved on one of the hottest days of the year which is not the best, but the guys were really professional.

They arrived on-time, and quickly prepared our property for the removal of all items. This included dismantling a KS bed, and two wardrobes.

I would recommend them as they made our move run smoothly."

Move from one side of country to the other.

"Everyone we spoke with at Christopher's was so lovely & extremely helpful from our initial inquiry through to final delivery. We were forced to move rather sooner than expected & were able to be flexible with dates, this was a busy time for removers but due to flexibility Christopher's arranged to collect on their way home from a delivery, keep everything in storage free of charge until they were able to deliver a few weeks later when they were in the area. The crew on each day were excellent, we could not have asked for more, everyone at Christopher's went above & beyond what one would expect."

Relocation from Buckinghamshire to North Devon incorporating the move of the house contents as well as my office and equipment. I had agreed to do all the packing with the exception of the sofas, beds, mirrors, pictures and TVs which they did extremely well & with speed and efficiency. Freezer contents were left inside and this was loaded last so it was first off the following day so it could be plugged in happy to report everything was still frozen.
 
Cost: £2016
 

"From start to finish it was a pleasure to have Christophers removals on board for my move, everything was explained clearly and my expectations were managed perfectly. Even after having several aborted dates for the move to happen, and then to have my first purchase fall through they were very understanding and were happy to wait for me to find another property and revise their quote once i had. On the day of the move the guys were slightly early and actually amazed me that with just the Two of them they were all packed and ready to leave around 2-30. The following day they called me at 10.00 to advise me where they were and find out about completion times and was happy to tell them all had been done and i was waiting on keys so arriving at my new home i found them already there. Once again everything was off loaded with care and efficiency sofas and beds were rebuilt and items put in the allocated rooms. Great care was taken by the guys not to scuff the walls or cause any damage, which is not easy when handling large items through doorways and up stairs.
I would have no problem recommending Christophers Removals to anyone, & should i ever want to move again you can be sure they would be the only company i contact for any future move. All in All great service great Staff and very competitive pricing."

From Gods Own Country on an adventure Up Country

"As anyone who lives in a rural place knows, access isn't always straightforward and a dead-end classed as a street but not much more than a backstreet in reality isn't straightforward.

Several van loads and shuttles to the actual removal van on a hot day were required when we moved house recently. I can't fault the workforce, it seemed so easy and even moving the piano looked easy.

I had a different firm relocate my parents to a different part of the country last year from Bristol and despite checking referrals and getting various quotes I was still shocked at the cost and a little dissatisfied with the care and attention that I witnessed. Compensation and apologies don't cover it after the upset at a stressful time in anyones life.

Word of mouth and personal recommendation were the reasons for choosing Christophers and it is nice to see the next generation playing their part in the business already.

Polite, friendly, and very COVID savvy, from the initial visit for the quote to the last box at the new address.

Extremely happy with the cost and the actual service. I would have no reservations in referring them to anyone and will definitely be using them again in the future.

Move from property sold and goods then held in storage due to delay in completion of property being purchased. Hence 2 separate removal days.

"We found Mike Christophers and has team extremely professional and courteous. Compared to removal charges with other firms we found their service for both removal and storage very good value. As we moved during the Covid pandemic we were also very impressed with the special procedures they have in place to ensure no-one is put at risk and their removal policy in light of Covid was outlined very clearly.

It was also an exceptionally busy period to move due to the high turnover of sales in Newquay yet Christophers were very accommodating in order to offer a timely service and fit with the required removal dates. And they were flexible when dates had to be changed and storage extended.

We would also add how professional, efficient and friendly the office staff were in terms of general communication and assisting with move dates and general enquiries.

Overall a great service. Nothing was any trouble at all stages from the initial contact to completion of the job and we would highly recommend their services."
