We used Herbert Davis when we moved home in September, it was a 4 day job for a 5 bed house, approx 4,000 sq.ft.
 
Cost: £6000
 

"Andy and his team were professional, helpful, incredibly hard working and always reassuring. We couldn't recommend them highly enough. Everything arrived safely and in one piece, as the packing was second to none. We're so glad we used HD's services and, should we move again, we would 100% use them again. 10 out of 10!!!"

This move was a normal move for us having moved 6 times in the last 20 years and the last 4 moves have been carried out by Herbert Davis. Nothing really exciting about the contents apart from the piano, a very heavy old B&O Television, lots of boxes and moving into a 3 storey house Basically, we were moving from a 4 bedroomed detached 2 storey house to a 5 bedroomed detavhed house on 3 storeys.....
 
Cost: £2100
 

"So as we have always used the Herbert Davis packing service, the move happens over 2 days….pack & move!
Simon and Zack arrived bright and early on the packing day and we shared stories of the last time they moved us….6 years ago and Simon was part of that team then.
Basically Simon asked us to go around each room and tell him and Zack was not being moved (i.e. we were moving those things) and explain the schematic of which room in the old house related to what room in the new house. He also asked the layout of the new house, parking, access etc.
Nothing was too much trouble for them and they finished late afternoon.
So moving day……

Again the team of Simon, Zack, Ian and Scott arrived early around 8am with a fleet of varying size vehicles to accommodate all varieties of boxes, furniture and garden equipment/plants.

It is amazing how the jigsaw gets finished within a reasonable amount of time without stress to the customers.

Even when our purchasers vans arrived Simon made sure that they knew they had to wait and ensured we didn’t stress about this.

By around 2.30pm, we were set to go….all systems go!

Again when we arrived at our new property, the whole team sprang into action and just got on with it. It rained for the last hour but the team kept focused and finished the job in super quick time without any damages to either the items being moved, nor the new property.

Our thanks go out to the whole team ably led by Simon.

We would recommend Herbert Davies to anyone and should we move again we will have no hesitation in using you…..thank you again.

My whole move went extremely well and was well organised in advance.
 
Cost: £3500
 

"I moved from Gloucestershire, England to Perthshire, Scotland and the whole move from start to finish could not have been better. Simon, the driver with the help of Zak were both extremely polite and very helpful. Simon met us in Scotland the following morning and with the help of a colleague from a local depot, everything was taken off the vehicle and put in the right place. I am very pleased to say, nothing was broken or damaged which was excellent compared with past experiences of other removal companies. I would definitely use this firm again and highly recommend them."

We packed most of the items to be removed ourselves with the exception of the pictures mirrors and the wardrobe hanging content which the guys took care of for us. The move was house to house with only about 3 miles in between locations.
 
Cost: £1500
 

"The team that moved us were punctual, helpful and very hard working. The vehicles were suitable for the task at hand and the move went without too many hiccups."

Moved from a 4 bedroom rental property to our permanent home having been moved by Herbert Davis beforehand.
 
Cost: £1634
 

"Very efficient from start to finish. We liked the fact that the team were punctual, quick and careful at the same time pleasant and professional.
If they weren't sure about anything they would ask.
We have used this company twice now and would recommend them.

Customer Review
 
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 HD’s 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. Can’t 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 didn’t need to do. They weren’t 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 can’t go wrong with Herbert Davis.
Totally excellent and professional. Can’t recommend enough."
 
 
Team:
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."

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 didn’t 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 couldn’t 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.

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 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."
