Customer Review
 
We move from the center of Cheltenham to 6 miles away, the move involved 3 lorries and 4 men who were excellent. A move without damage which was carried out on time, with humor and loads of care and attention. Andy and his team were exceptional and I would recommend them to others plus I would use Herbert Davis again.
 
Cost: £1860
 

"Our whole experience was of the highest quality, we were uncertain as we had not moved house for 37 years. We collated several estimates from different companies and the quotations varied considerably. Herbert Davis was not the cheapest but the cheapest is not always the way to go. I comes down to (feel) how you feel about the people you deal with, the cleanliness of their vehicles, their presentation and their manner.
Herbert Davis ticked just about all the boxes so in our view they were the company that will look after us and our property the best.
They were efficient, polite, presentable and considerate."

Customer Review
 
Our move was particularly difficult. The Cottage we vacated had 49 steps to negotiate to the removal van and with very heavy furniture. The removers were jolly, friendly professional and not once was there a moan about their difficult task. I would thoroughly recommend Herbert Davis. The whole move took two days. The removal date had to be changed several times by us, but this was accommodated.
 
Cost: £1500
 

"Herbert Davis removals has been recommended to us as a company that was sympathetic to the difficulties of moving from a difficult site. All our worries about the problems of moving heavy furniture up many steps to the road evaporated on our first meeting and assessment. We were happy with the quotation. Throughout the move we were confident our furniture and belongings were treated with respect, including two fragile clocks. Boxes were delivered well in time for unstressed packing. The two removal preppie were professional and pleasant, and very hard working. Although our furniture was heavy to negotiate, I was never aware of any complaint. Any furniture which needed to be collapsed was done for us and put back together in our new flat."

We moved stuff over two days and planned to leave a lot behind so i can sort later. I am moving my mother to a new house near me and she has been in her old house for many years.

"Everyone was brilliant. I was really impressed and happy with the service.

One piece of furniture was damaged and I am not sure how I am going to deal with that but the people concerned dealt with the situation transparently in the moment."

Customer Review
 
Packing a 3 storey, 4 bed house moving 250 miles.

"Before:
When I first started looking for a removal company I will admit I wasn't too sure about Herbert Davies. Our chain then started going a bit crazy and the dates changed and Herbert Davies went out of their way to try and accommodate us before Christmas even though it would have been difficult. We didnt end up moving and throughout January our date kept changing and Herbert Davies were the ONLY ones that tried to accommodate us each time and remained friendly and welcoming. We knew they were the only ones we wanted to use and frankly there are a number of removal companies in Gloucester that could learn a thing or two about customer service from HD.

The Move itself:
If I could sum it all up in one word it would probably be wow. We had arranged for HD to pack for us too. So the day before Paul came out to pack, on his own, a 4 bed 3 storey house and garage that is very full of stuff! The challenge was huge but Paul was amazing and incredibly efficient getting everything packed and sorted in quite an amazing speed.

The next day he loaded with Ian, drove 250 miles and unloaded a good portion of stuff whilst still remaining polite, professional, friendly and welcoming. We really cannot rate or speak highly enough about him. He made a huge move completely stress free and easy. Our move has provided headaches and woe in every other sense so expectations were low but I really cannot fault or thank Paul or Herbert davies enough.

Paul is (too quote our Mum) definitely a man who leaves an impression on you and Herbert Davies are incredibly incredibly lucky to have him!"

Customer Review
 
House move, with full packing service the day before. Some items also went into storage for 2 months (including an upright piano).
 
Cost: £1260
 

"Excellent service all round. Helpful (and calm!) staff right from the first enquiry and visit to quote, to reserving various moving dates and then finalising the date. The packing service was amazing (nothing was lost or broken), very friendly staff and efficient. The removal day was excellent too, with equally friendly and helpful staff.

Various items were kept in storage for two months. These were delivered in the same excellent, friendly and professional way - including an upright piano which was taken upstairs (where the stairs had a turn at the top).

Would thoroughly recommend!"

Stuff from storage to a house
 
Cost: £330
 

"I had Herbert Davis Removals to move my stuff from storage in my Grandma's garage to our new house. Nothing to much for Paul and Simon. They were both very polite and professional. Paul and Simon got on with the job and cleared the garage in no time. When we got to the house they asked me where I wanted everything to go and were more than accommodating. Thank you again lads. Will definitely be recommending you"

Move from 5-bed house and double garage and garden, to house in village with restricted access. Pre-move packing service included. Gas Board dug up the access road to the new place but the team sorted that out, and politely withstood the gripes from old ladies about the three vans in their way while the access was sorted. I admired the initiative of the team in getting round the slings and arrows.

"The price was the best of three quotes, the service was excellent, no damage apart from one glass jam spoon, prompt, efficient, friendly, willing. Prompt collection of used boxes. Pre-move packing was efficient and effective. Can't recommend highly enough."

We moved out of our home in Gloucestershire and put our goods in store with Herbert Davis. We moved into a new property in Knaresborough, N. York’s and HD brought the containers with our goods from Gloucester and moved us in all on the same day. The whole operation of moving out, storage and moving into our new house was carried out efficiently, with humour, with no damage and with all items placed where we wanted them. We were very pleased with all services provided.

"The removal of goods was quick and items that required ore-packing in boxes and marking with contents was done.
Storage was in HD’s premises in Gloucester and detailed inventories of each container was provided.
On finding a new home six months later all containers were brought up north and unloaded in the same day.
All items had their position in the house and room pre-designated which helped all parties and speeded up the process.
All was done with humour, efficiency and without any delays.
Highly recommended.
"
