We moved from a 3 bed flat on the 4th floor to a 3 bed townhouse over 3 floors - with a very large sofa that would not fit in the lift.
 
Cost: £1500
 

"The whole experience from the Britannia Anchor team was first-class, from initial evaluation visit, to quote and email correspondence through to the move itself. This is a high-quality service with a smile. Paul and Reece were our removal team and packed and moved us over two days. Their jolly personalities and upbeat mood helped make the move a positive experience. They were calm and focused and their experience showed, with all our belongings packed and delivered safe and sound to our new property. We have had some bad experiences before with removal companies and we are delighted to report that this was not the case with the Britannia Anchor team. Great experience and happy with all aspects of their services and communications. Highly recommended."

Flat to house move, flat on the 14th floor, 2 lifts available

"It was a great experience from start to end. We were impressed with how easy it was to book the site visit (Martin was in time and he provided plenty of info), the quote we got came very quickly after the site visit, the boxes we ordered from them were delivered as agreed.

The moving day went smoothly, the team was amazing, nothing seemed too difficult for them. The team handled our goods very carefully and they treated the property with extra care.

The value for money was great. We will definitively use them again when needed.

Totally recommend the company, excellent services from sales and quotes, house visit and boxes delivery and moving services. Just excellent!"

Vicarage removal which envolves moving a huge amount of books!

"Right from day one my husband and I received an excellent service. The team were very obligeing, good humoured, very kind and very willing. We all got on very well. They were respectful of both the properties. All items irrespective of value were well packed and safely delivered. The team arrived punctually every day day.
This was an excellent service from initial contact from beginning to end and I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone seeking a removal firm.

Second floor flat, moving items to storage facility.

"Moving from a second-floor flat is never a simple job, especially with bulky items of furniture. Despite a very difficult job, Reece and Paul were exceptional, were courteous throughout and worked incredibly hard. Would certainly recommend Anchor Removals."

Customer Review
 
Move from 1-bed flat in Manchester to Epsom in Surrey. Delighted to have been offered the option of making a small change in dates to share with another move, substantially reducing cost
 
Cost: £882
 

"1st time experience of moving. It was made very easy from the beginning, with lots of clear, friendly explanations and the price being given as a result of a video tour rather than a visit (just after covid lockdown was lifted). We very much appreciated being given the option of reducing the price by sharing with another delivery to the south-east. Van arrived on time, staff were professional, polite and uncomplaining despite the hot weather and steep stairs from 3rd floor. Arrival at destination was on time, professional and helpful. Everything was handled carefully, mattress and tv were particularly well-protected and staff managed to stack the furniture in garage in a smaller space than we could have imagined possible. We had wondered about hiring a van and doing it ourselves but it was well worth getting the whole thing done properly."

Our move was over 3 days, and 2 x 18.5 Tonne lorries used.
 
Cost: £2000
 

"The move was handled very professionally throughout; from booking, the day of the move and the staff. Our original moving company let us down and had actually underestimated the amount of stuff we had. Anchor removals were honest and gave us my in depth advice on what we actually needed.

Ours was a big move with a lot of personal possessions. The staff over the 3 days were brilliant and had to put up with my very bad jokes :-) We were quoted for 2 guys over 3 days, however additional staff were put on the job to help as time was running out and the weather was horrible...There was no additional cost and this was great fully appreciated.

Paul and Reese who did the move were great, very helpful and never stopped or complained about our steep stairs!

I had to change the date of the move numerous times, however the operations manager was very accommodating and helped us throughout.

Overall I would thoroughly recommend! I won’t be moving again ever but if I did I would use Anchor Removals."

My move was from Radcliffe Gtr Manchester to Nelson Lancs, I dont think it could have gone any better on the day,

"As i had not moved for over 20 years previously i was naturally concerned all would go as smoothly as possible, and decided to employ a professional removal company, Well i couldn't have chosen better!
From the moment the two removal men arrived promptly and on time, they were really good, friendly disposition and nothing was too much to ask of them, i actually enjoyed their company whilst they got on with the main work which i could not have done myself, they actually made it somewhat of a pleasurable experience rather than a daunting task which had to be done. Yes i am very happy with 'Britannia Anchor Removals' and thank them for making my move day as easy as possible!"

House move, 4-bed detached moving to 3-bed detached, distance about 35 miles.
 
Cost: £739
 

"Quote was asked for during Coronavirus lock-down and so in lieu of a visit the quote was done on-line. I took a number of short videos on my phone, one video per room and I described what was to be moved and anything that was to be left. This worked very well I though and the quote was very reasonable. The quote was for The quote was very reasonable in my opinion. The quote did not included packing as we were prepared to do this ourselves.
One lock-down was lifted and house moves could be carried out I contacted Anchor again and arranged a date. Original quote was honoured, paperwork supplied, and all was very professional.
On removal day, the team of Paul & Gavin arrived on time. They were very friendly and worked non-stop to load the vehicle. Everything was packed well into the van using protective wrappings, etc. At the other end, everything was swiftly unloaded and placed in the correct rooms. If anything was not clearly marked they confirmed its place with us. Everything arrived safely with no damage whatsoever.
For both loading and unloading protective material was used to cover all flooring.
All in all, it was a very professional job."

MOVE FROM MIDDLETON MANCHESTER TO BACUP IN ROSSENDALE.
 
Cost: £616
 

"We finally moved on the 1st June without any more delays due to the Corona Virus ,the removals team arrived bang on time they introduced themselves did a quick walk round check to see which was the easiest way to start the job,they swiftly got to work taking great care with everything they handled ,it took about 3 hrs no problems. The guys arrived at the new property just before me and soon got to work ,we didn't have to wait for keys as i already had them ,i thought there might be a problem with the drive as it's steep and cobbled but the guys just got on with the job with no whinging what so ever,it took about 3hrs to unload ,they put everything where i asked them too no problems at all. I have used Brittania / Anchor before with Military moves and in my opinion they are the best and i would highly recommend this company for any move big or small .

The 2 guys which did my move were Brilliant ,THANKS."

Eccles Manchester to South Ayrshire with storage for 3 weeks whilst we got jobs done in our new home.
 
Cost: £2000
 

"So pleased that we chose Britannia Anchor Removals, couldn't be happier with their services. From the initial telephone call right up to waving the delivery guys off when our furniture was delivered to our new home.
We were amazed at the skill and strength of the staff who emptied our house in Manchester and also the same goes for the guys who delivered to our new home in South Ayrshire. Everyone was polite, friendly and professional. We would definitely recommend this company to anyone who is moving house."

Detached house move with good access, to detached house down a long narrow drive, requiring trans-ship using a smaller van. Piano too!

"Great move on the whole. The staff were brilliant, working hard and quickly, and taking care with items we drew their attention to. Ours was a logistically complicated move, and some issues arise which suggested that internal communication was not as good as it might have been, and an extra van was needed. The staff adapted to this with good grace to get the job done. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Anchor."

Customer Review
 
We were moving from the Oldham area to Helmsley, North Yorkshire, over 90 miles away. Also moving with us was my mother in law who lived in her own flat, but going to a new address, close to our new place. Two separate moves in effect and to confuse matters our new place was not ready so a period of storage was required for our furniture.
 
Cost: £1
 

"Very complicated move, for us at least, but handled superbly by Acorn, in a no fuss, professional way. Our fears were calmed and everything worked out just fine. Acorn is a professional company and all office staff and removal staff are valued by them. There is no casual labour used here, all the removers are on proper contracts and are paid a fair living wage, as far as I have been told. And you can tell. It's a highly motivated, well trained and qualified team that was a pleasure to have in our homes.
They are members of BAR and you can tell that by the standards they keep.
We cannot speak too highly of all of them."

Move from a four bedroom detached house to a two bedroom 3 storey cottage. New house had restricted access which was overcome by using a smaller feeder van. Great co-ordination between the team on the day. There were some issues in nailing the completion date and Ellen was great in co-ordinating the team to achieve the move on the day.
 
Cost: £1200
 

"Its the second time I've used this firm for moving house and would highly recommend them. Their care and attention to detail, clear communication and professionalism make them a winning team.
Pricing is competitive and I've used both the firm packing and self packing options. Personally I wouldn't use any other removal firm."

Move done efficiently and quickly. Two good teams on the job who were friendly and helpful.
