We had two houses to move in to one on the same day. The family home was packed up the day before.
 
Cost: £27000
 

"The removal guys took all the stress away and I would not hesitate to recommend Metro. I have given your details to our Estate Agent so he can recommend to future clients

Absolutely fantastic service, from calling on the phone to book and keep re checking dates due to our completion date being delayed.
The guys who packed our house were great, I have not done a packing service before however this took all the stress away on moving day and in my opinion is the only way to do it now.
Very grateful for being so well looked after from start to finish. Thank you!"

We had a 2 day move as we relocated into a different county.

"We were really pleased with the service from Metro.
Prompt, helpful and friendly guys.
The team were quick to unload and followed our instructions for placing the furniture once we had the keys to our new property.

We would recommend Metro."

Over the past 7 years or so, I have moved house twice, and Metro have at various times collected, stored, re-delivered and unpacked three containers of household items for me.

"Any time Ive contacted them, the staff, both in the office and on the ground, have always been polite, respectful and considerate. I have nothing but praise for Metro, and have no hesitation in recommending them."

"The team were very punctual. They handled big bits furniture with care, no scrapes! They were polite and nothing was too much effort for them. At the unloading end they were very efficient and even plumbed in my washing machine for me."

Move went very smoothly.We had the packing and unpacking service as we are unable to do it ourselves.The two staff arrived the day before to pack everything that was not needed prior to the move .The came the next morning to complete the packing and load onto the vehicle.from leaving our old address until unpacking at are new address was very efficient completed in approx 3.5 hours. Both staff were very polite and helpful it made a stressful time very easier.I have used metro previously and found them to be polite and helpful. I cannot remember both the of the staff name .Lee weas one but appologise for not remembering his colleagues name.Lee had moved us previously.
 
Cost: £1450
 

"Very pleased with all aspects of the move.Dean who came and assessed what we needed and answered any questions we had.Emailed the quote which we found reasonable.The packing and unpacking very efficient.Both staff polite and cheerful.Timings were very good.
We have used metro previously when we moved and required storage.
All staff we met sorry cannot remember everyones name except Lee who we had dealt with before and Dean who came to assess were cheerful and polite.
Have recommended metro to our previous neighbours who were looking for a removal company for their daughter to use for her removalWe would definately use again if we needed to move again which hopefully would not be the case.
We did not look for several quotes as we had used metro before."

We have used Metro on a number of occasions over the last 3 years, for removals and storage purposes. All our dealings have been dealt with in a professional and efficient manner and the removal teams in particular have gone to every length to accommodate our requirements.

"We have moved twice recently and used long term storage facilities in-between. Both the storage and removal procedures have been excellent, the teams involved were punctual, polite and made the whole process as quick and easy for us as possible. Would highly recommend."
 
 
Team:
Lee and all the teams for each move were outstanding.

Customer Review
 
The four removers were excellent in their duties on the day we moved. They immediately began loading the lorry with all the household, garden, shed and garage items. They were all enthusiastic, energetic, polite and very helpful throughout the move from one property to another. They worked very hard all day from start to finish. All boxes were stored as indicated on each one. The furniture was dismantled and reassembled without any difficulties. They carried the heavy and/or fragile furniture with due care and diligence. I cannot praise their work highly enough. From my initial interview with the owner of the firm, to his detailed information he took from us beforehand and the paperwork detailing how much it would cost, to the final form I signed to say the removers had carried out the work with a remendous attitude and handling of our goods. Thank you for the whole job from start to finish. Thank you very much.
 
Cost: £1482
 

"I have already covered the people who carried out our removal for us in detail. From the first visit until they finally finished the removal of all items from one property to another. I cannot find anything untoward to say. The removers, the Manager, the details given to us, the carrying out of all our wishes on the day, our marked boxes where put in the appropriate rooms in the new property. I cannot fault any aspects of our long day of moving from a property to our new property without any criticism or comments to make about the process, the preparation, our initial interview completely through to all our furniture being tranferred appropriately in excellent time and with utmost efficiency. I have nothing but praise for the work that was undertaken by this firm.

Thank you to everyone who played any part in our harrowing move from one property to another. We are both pensioners and unfortunately we were unable to assist with the move. That did not involve any assistance from us as all the removers were ready to move everything from a to be without any issues.
"
 
 
Team:
Very sorry but unfortunately, I cannot remember their names now.

Friday 8th Sept, moved by a great team. All very quick, efficient and extremely professional. Very very hot day but all done quickly

"Service was amazing from start to finish.
Quick response time to come out and assess the move requirements.
Very friendly guy who came.
Morning of move, van arrived in time, 3 man move, explained again how it would work.
Extremely hot day, but the were very efficient and organised.

Nothing was too much trouble.

At other end, unpacked the van, everything done, quickly but again very efficiently. They made everything look effortless in very warm conditions.

Great guys, very friendly, interacted with whole family which is very much a plus.

I would highly recommend, in fact already have!☺️

Customer Review
 
Pack up house and remove to the next down. Moving from 3 bed house to 2 bed bungalow : unfortunatly the lady of the house is in the mid stages of dementia and refused to dispose of anything ! We moved on a Monday, so the packers came on Friday which worked well for us. The lady had already packed a lot, which made it more awkward for the men as not everything was in standard boxes, and despite me telling her - she packed boxes till they were full, rather then capable of being carried.
 
Cost: £2200
 

"they arrived slightly early. Did a tour of the house to decide how to load the stuff. 2 gentlemen arrived later to help, and a forth later arrived to pack the "fragile" items. They worked like trojans, and nothing was too much trouble. They respected the property and the items they were loading.They finished what they need to pack mid afternoon and took the stuff back to their yard for the weekend. They arrived promptly on Monday morning, 3 of them and ready for the off by 0945.

I got the keys at 1445 and they immediatly got down to unloading, and carried on with the same standard and care as the loading.

With regarding improvements : IF IT AINT BUST - DONT TRY AND MEND IT!"

"We both found metro a great company for the move. The team were very helpful and asked us if unsure were to put stuff. Professional and friendly at all times and had us all moved in buy around 2pm which was amazing considering the miles between the two properties. I would definitely recommend them."

Customer Review
 
We had lived in our 4 bedroomed house for approximately 22 years and had were downsizing to a 3 bed bungalow near the East Coast - I wanted to walk a beach! The road we moved to is a private road with a very narrow drive. We had put our belongings into storage while the bungalow was painted etc and when we got our things out of storage, the driver reversed brilliantly and into our drive.
 
Cost: £340000
 

"We haven't moved for 22 years and we moved ourselves into the house. This time however, I wanted to use a professional removal firm. I got three quotes and we met with Lee of Metro Removals at home. He was very professional and explained everything and we decided to go with Metro. All our belongings were going into storage with Metro and on moving date, Lee and his team arrived on time, worked right through the day. The team were very professional, clean, tidy and polite. 4 weeks later our things came out of storage and were delivered to us by Steve (the driver) and Jacob. Once again, they arrived on time, were very professional and helpful and made everything really east. We really appreciated their help. I had looked at a couple of other firms when I got the quotes, but none were as good as Metro (and some of them were more expensive). If we move again, (hopefully not too soon!) we would definitely use Metro Removals."

We moved from Olney to Weymouth, but had a delay so metro stored all our goods for about 6 weeks,

"Moving crew collected and delivered exactly as agreed nothing damaged, and everything placed as requested. We were recommended to use metro by word of mouth and have already recommended to someone else."

We moved from Northampton to Scotland and Metro packed all of our things, took them into store and allowed us to add a few extra boxes just before we left. Everything went into store with them. 2 weeks later they delivered everything back to us in our new home.
 
Cost: £4980
 

"The packing went well with a gang of 5 men - efficient and quick on a hot day. The delivery was completed by 2 men and they were on site the evening before, started work jus after 8 and completed early afternoon - efficient and painless.

I was totally satisfied with the standard of work by Metro and the staff they used, it was a painless process and I have no hesitation in recommending them. I would score them 10 across the board if I did not aways give some 9's.

They did an excellent job and I would certainly go to them again."
