A move from Gloucestershire to Lincolnshire, so not exactly local for a removal company especially as our contents went into storage for 5 months due to us taking time to find the right property. 8 containers loaded and stored safely in HDís storage facilities. Packed for us over 2 days.

"Everyone was excellent, from the initial quote, the booking of dates to fit with us, the explanations of all the terms, insurance options, protection etc and the loading and unloading team. Canít praise them enough, very highly recommended. They even amended their quote slightly for the storage as a rival was undercutting them on storage costs, which they didnít need to do. They werenít the cheapest but their service, communication, and pleasant manner was why we chose them over two rival quotes.
If you want a totally professional service you canít go wrong with Herbert Davis.
Totally excellent and professional. Canít recommend enough."

The whole team were fantastic, led professionally by Andy and Kathy.

I moved from a two bed rental property in Gloucestershire to a three bed in Cornwall.
 
Cost: £1800
 

" The process was straight forward and I experienced no problems. The quotation process was easy and the member of staff who carried this out gave me confidence that this was the firm I would be happy to use. Boxes were delivered to my house ready for me to do the packing. On removal day, in Gloucestershire, the team arrived promptly, introduced themselves and set up before describing the order they would load the lorry. Throughout the process they asked if they needed further advice on certain items. On day two in Cornwall, again the team were prompt, the new team member from the area introduced himself. Unloading went smoothly and the team were polite, respectful and jovial. We had no breakages. The letters/emails from the company could be more professionally typed, but the contract form was very clear."

I moved from rented accommodation into a house I had purchased. 3 bed semi to a 2 bed semi.
 
Cost: £1600
 

"All dealings with this company were conducted in a good manner. The estimator arrived on time, was reasonable in his comments and provided a fair quote. There was a delay with the provision of the quote and conformation due to the software, this occurred twice. The packer arrived on time on the correct day and swiftly went about his work. The day of the removal went well, perhaps a smaller van would have allowed access to the property via the drive rather than parking on the road. Very clear on what could be handled. The process was conducted under covid 19 rules. Unpacking went well and a reasonable stress free day! Provision of 3 on the day of the move was good."

Customer Review
 
4 bed house move with many items in large loft. This move involved packing on Monday and moving Tuesday.
 
Cost: £2580
 

"Two guys came and worked really hard, including removing dozens of boxes and very heavy items from the loft. Tuesday move went really smoothly, 4 guys loaded the lorry and we moved in by 1.30pm. At all ties they were professional, friendly and really helpful and extremely organised. Unloading was swift, including building the beds and a wardrobe. Nothing was too much trouble.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this team and this company. Such good value as well! What I liked was that Andy who came to look round the house for the quote, was in charge on the day, he didn't delegate it to others but was there taking responsibility for the move on both days. we felt we got a personal service and could't fault them."

Moving our complete house and outbuilding contents plus garden planters and plants to our new home.
 
Cost: £1000
 

"When booking at this very busy time and no certainty as to our moving date they were very accommodating having only one slot available before the end of the stamp duty holiday.
Their price was very favourable when compared to the others who quoted.

On the day the staff were excellent.

Very pleased we chose them"

Very stressful for me because I am a 83 year old woman and I had to do it mostly by myself. I did all my packing.
 
Cost: £840
 

"Boxes arrived okay. But paper I ordered didnít arrive but the van driver had some old stuff that he gave me and I managed with that.

The two removal men came nice and early on the right day. They were cautious and worked hard and I thought very afficiantly. Only complaint I have is my double bed was not put back as it should have been. The slats were too low and so I couldnít put my suitcases under the bed out of the way as was what I usually did. Also after two weeks still waiting for the removal company to pickup the empty boxes and they are in my way."

A move in two parts - from home into store, store for six months and then from store to new house in the Hebrides. A mixture of home equipment, some valuable antiques and pictures.
 
Cost: £5500
 

"WE have used firms in the Britannia Group before and always been satisfied. Logistically ours was not an easy move. The house we left did not have easy access, and the one we moved to was the other end of the country. Herbert Davis were exceptionally efficient and supportive, everything was done on time and nothing was damaged or broken. Even though we were still under Covid restrictions, the team were able to do their job, minimise contact with us, and look after themselves at breaks. Great job, very well done."

It was a two-stage move, so the furniture was in storage for three months.
 
Cost: £1850
 

"The office personnel were excellent and very helpful. That was true of the movers themselves who were punctual, polite, speedy and took good care of our belongings."

Packed and moved my things into storage, kept for a year, then delivered.

"Flat is on a high floor and delivery was quite complicated, as was from loading bay and accross a courtyard.
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 couldnít 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 couldnít 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."

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."
