The job was not at all straightforward for the team but they handled every aspect of it brilliantly. I needed two small vans and drivers locally to operate a shuttle service to offload all our possessions - 50 cubic meters - from a larger removal truck coming from Sweden to the UK and then to deliver to a difficult to access property.
 
Cost: £1200
 

"Extremely helpful in every way both in the office to agree services required, site visit, date and time of collection and delivery, and invoicing; and also the exceptional efficiency, care and teamwork on the day of the move. The local team had to coordinate with the Swedish crew so that they could work together on the shuttle service. This they organized speedily and efficiently and even on one of the hottest days of the year kept their cool and got on extremely well with the Swedish team - their common language being neither English nor Swedish but a deep mutual understanding in what makes a good removal team! I would happily recommend this company with the highest regard for their excellent service and customer care."

Move a unique collection of articles in various display cases and relocate. Each display had to be carefully dismantled as some were extremely fragile and carefully wrapped and boxed. The move also involved some miniature display houses.
 
Cost: £1800
 

"We could not have been more delighted. Everything was carefully packed, dismantled and delivered with no damage. The agreed works were completed in exactly the time frame agreed. All of the staff involved were very professional and friendly. We could not recommended them more highly."

We have used Pitmans to take various pieces of furniture to a nursing home, our home and to the restorers.

"Many of the pieces have been large and stairs and doorways have been small but Pitmans have succeeded every time with good humour and great care. We recommend them without reservation."

Customer Review
 
Our daughter was moving into her first new home, exciting but emotional for all.
 
Cost: £600
 

"The guys from Pitmans, Mark and Lee, were excellent, v efficient and friendly. They arrived at 7.30 in Dorset, and left us, all done, in Somerset at noon. It wasn't a furniture-heavy move, but a lot of complex computer equipment (our daughter works as an IT consultant from home on high level projects) and they handled it all with care and splendidly. What could have been v stressful wasn't at all, and they were adaptable and very effective. We've always recommended them, and this has only strengthened our high opinion of them. Thankyou Pitmans.
Sue Sparkes & Frank Miller."

Moving from one house to another, only 15 miles away. All went very well. Using the smaller vans worked very well.

"They were very helpful, it was a very busy time for all removers, but they agreed to look after us. It was very very stress free, the guys were very helpful, friendly and nothing was too much trouble."

Moved two households into one bigger one from Gillingham to Shaftesbury.

"Great service from the outset. Helpful advice from Tracey and always available on the end of the phone/email to answer queries. On the day the guys were polite, friendly, good humoured and worked incredibly hard to get our two houses moved into one in just one day. Highly recommended and would not use anyone else to move me."

We had a full packing service and last minute, used their storage facility for 1 month. The move was to another county.

They arrived at 8am and had finished the Job by midday.
 
Cost: £3264

"We were very happy with every aspect. The team who packed were great. They took real care and we had no damage or breakages. They put everything in storage for 1 month and kept our plants alive during this time. The team that delivered were also great. They were punctual and worked efficiently to get everything in place. Finally Tracey in the office was amazing from start to finish. She went above and beyond, helping us with aspects such as finding someone to take unwanted furniture .

The whole team were brilliant!"

We could not get a local company so contacted Pitmans Removal's as they were near the property we were moving to (87 miles away) The only turned up on time a delivered exactly what was promised. We had 4 very large vans fully loaded!
 
Cost: £2400

"I can't recommend this company enough. From the initial telephone enquiry through to the finished job was excellent. They were all so friendly. Cheerful, helpful and very hard working.
Nothing was too much trouble. We will certainly be using them again a I have spread the word of them with friends and colleagues.
A very happy customer. "

I moved from Herts to Dorset. I was moving from the second floor in a block of flats with no lift to a cottage on a narrow country lane.
 
Cost: £1560

"The removal men were incredibly efficient and courteous, managing to manoevre furniture around tricky corner and up narrow staircases without complaining or damaging anything. I will definitely use them next time I move. "

Moved from bungalow to bungalow, did my own packing. Items included a full bungalow of furniture, numerous boxes, two large dolls houses, contents of garage, garden storage unit, garden benches and a number of garden tubs/pots. The team arrived early and we were all packed up by midday. I collected the keys for the new property. The removal team were already outside, ready to unload. All unloaded and put in place by early afternoon. My only job was making the tea.
 
Cost: £816
 

"An excellent service from start to finish, very friendly crew arrived, treated my belongings with care and worked like trojans. Nothing was too much trouble everything was placed exactly where I wanted in my new home and even though I did change my mind a couple of times, they were very obliging and moved items to suit. I had previously used this company and wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Worth every penny."
