All carried out efficiently, professionally and with care.Removal men were polite and friendly.
Very happy with the service. Highly recommended."

Moving from 3 bed detached to a 4 bedroom bungalow. Lots of pot plants and two large shrubs in big pots together with garden furniture required moving. There was also a large amount of music equipment.

"The Removals staff did an excellent job and couldn’t have been more helpful. The move went very smoothly and there were no breakages or damage to any items. I would highly recommend this company. Herbert Davis provided a first class service and are highly recommended."

Customer Review
 
The move was from Gloucestershire to mid-Cornwall, and was therefore done across two days.
 
Cost: £2100
 

"Herbert Davis Ltd were a pleasure to deal with. The office staff were helpful and friendly, and the quote was very reasonable considering the size of the load and the distance to be travelled.
On removals day, the van and crew turned up on time, and they worked like demons ! I had pre-packed everything, but some of the boxes were really heavy, and some of the packages were awkward shapes - but nothing phased them. There was also a piano and two large motorbikes, and all went into the van with no problems. Everything was well protected and safely secured.
The following day, the van arrived in Cornwall and was unloaded without fuss. I have now unpacked almost all my boxes, and so far there have been no breakages, and nothing has been scratched or damaged in any way.
Thoroughly recommended."

Moved during lockdown, everything was done very professionally.

"Moved in two stages. Half my furniture went to new house the rest went into storage and was all returned in good order. Large wardrobe and large dining table were dismantled and rebuilt.

Reasonable price for storage."

We were making a move from Surrey to Gloucester. From first floor flat, no lift.
 
Cost: £1200
 

"We were making a move from Surrey to Gloucester with two small children so we hoped our movers would be efficient and helpful. We couldn’t have asked for more. Both the men on our job were brilliant and everything was loaded as quickly as we hoped. They were amazing at working with us to unload and work round the children at the same time! Thank you so much, you made the day stress free."

Customer Review
 
This move was a long distance one from Gloucestershire to the East Midlands so that a two day move was necessary. Luckily, the weather was perfect and no road problems were encountered.

"Regrettably, this move entailed a chain of transactions and considerable confusion over completion dates. Herbert Davis Removals dealt with this with considerable patience, tolerance, and understanding and deserve praise for its sensitivity to the situation."
 
 
Team:
Andy, Nathan, and Ian were first class in their customer relations and had a great rapport with us as customers.

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."

Moving furniture and paintings ranging in weight, up to about 250 kg, to and age up to 400 years old.

"Fantastic removal of furniture with delightful team, storage of items for a year and carefully bringing it all back again without a single hitch. Couldn't recommend them enough."

Customer Review
 
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."

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."

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."
