Move from Manchester to Norfolk

"We moved from Manchester to Norfolk, due to the distances the move was over 2 days. The staff were so helpful from the first enquiry through to the last box being carried in to our new house. Our whole house was loaded in just over 2 hours on the first day and the van arrived exactly when expected on the second day. We cannot praise the guys who moved us highly enough, they always had a smile on their faces and nothing was too much trouble for them. The cost of the whole move was very reasonable given the distances involved.
We would highly recommend Brittania Anchor to anyone thinking of moving house."

The move was a large move from a 4 bedroom house estimating about 150 boxes and many fragile items.
 
Cost: £1065
 

"Great customer service from complete team. Before the move we was a anxious if we are choosing the correct vehicle size so we contacted the office and the team was very reassuring and gave really good advice. We had also set up a plan before moving day to do the move in 2 days which was very convenient for us especially as we have a toddler. The movers made our day stress free, they knew exactly what they were doing and got the job done. I cannot think of any faults or improvements needed. Everything was brilliant. Would definitely recommend to family and friends."

Tony, Chris and all the movers on the day

Belongings collected and moved into secure storage for 6 months before being delivered to our new address.

"Great service from start to finish from Ellen and the team.
The guys were extremely helpful and polite on both occasions and nothing was too much trouble.
They never stopped and wouldn't even have a cup of tea.
Great job I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone."

Customer Review
 
We relocated 90 miles and downsized . The movers came the afternoon prior to our move date to load as much non essential stuff as they could, then returned the following morning to complete the move.

"Our move happened at relatively short notice after a very long drawn out purchase by our buyers. We were delighted with the service we received from the survey visit to the actual move. All staff we dealt with, either in person or on the phone we're extremely helpful and courteous. Our move involved a relocation of 90 miles, and a move into a 3 storey townhouse which the moving team cheerfully took in their stride. After a very stressful selling process, we were delighted that the move process was so painless, thanks to all at Britannia Anchor."

Ellen, Tony, Reece and Aaron.(sorry there was another mover on the first afternoon who was going on holiday)

House move from Bolton to Preston
 
Cost: £675
 

"Team arrived on time and swiftly transported our furniture and an array of boxes to their vehicle.
Nothing was too much trouble and when we realised we needed some more boxes, they were quickly produced from the lorry.
Great care was taken to ensure nothing was damaged during transportation.
Both guys (Gareth and his team mate) were friendly and approachable - even when we arrived at our new home (a new-build) to find the keys weren't available!!
No issues. Many tanks to all"

Packing up and next day move
 
Cost: £1900
 

"Moving is never an easy process but the Team from Anchor made what is a chore into an "more easy move!"

The Removals Team worked very hard and I would like to personally thank Andy, Arran, Greg and Gavin who put a proper shift in on my move.

I would definitely recommend this Team. from Tony coming out and doing the survey, Ellen and Jayne in the Office to the hard working Lads on the Van.

Thanks Again

Andy

This related to a residential move to a different city.

"I just wanted to say a very big thank you to Gavin and Andy who assisted with my dads move between two cities. They are both fantastic, very patient and helpful and went above and beyond. We couldn’t have asked for a better service.

We are so grateful and will most definitely recommend your company again."

Move home from one house in the North West to another.
 
Cost: £1140
 

"This company are superb from start to finish. Tony is a diamond who did the survey and quote and explained process really well. The removal gentlemen Reece and Paul are hard working, lovely and helpful. The office team are equally brilliant. I think this company have a lot to feel proud of in terms of the quality of service they deliver. Genuine and trustworthy. Reliable and professional. I wouldn't use any other removal firm and would recommend them to anyone. If only every business had decent human beings like these guys and the ability to do a great job the world would be a better place! Well done guys!"

As mentioned
 
Cost: £2400
 

"Only two small issues
Two small removal vans were used instead of the pods, so goods had to be moved at the depot and put into the storage pods
Protective sheets for dining table and chairs TV’s, Fridge freezer, washing machine, dryer and dishwasher they were not protected and were stuffed into the small vans.
Shoe covers were not worn

Apart from the above the staff were polite

Jayne was excellent good communication skill
Ellen helped on occasions and was very helpful
Tony is a really nice man and professional one small mistake on the choice of vehicle for the removal.

We all make mistakes but this wouldn’t put me of recommending Anchor Removals"

We moved from Bolton in early December, putting everything into store to await completion of purchase of our new home. Move to Wiltshire completed end of February
 
Cost: £5740
 

"Team spent 2.5 days packing and loading all our effects. They were pleasantly sociable, took care to cover carpets etc to prevent soiling by wet feet. Got on with packing but referred to us occasionally with small queries.

All our effects were subsequently delivered safe and sound from Storage. One piece of furniture slightly damaged in the process but Anchor swiftly offered reparation. Also promised to arrange collection of empty cartons once we have finished unpacking.

Whole process much appreciated and has made our move a pleasant experience, much appreciated, especially in view of extra anxiety we experienced due to disruption in conveyancing procedure."

Collection of an antique clock
 
Cost: £300
 

"This is the second time I have used Anchor Britannia service and I was not disappointed.
Jayne in the office assisted me promptly and efficiently and I received a quote the same day. The long case clock was collected from an address in York and brought to my house in Manchester. The clock arrived in good condition and I was delighted to be re-united with this family heirloom.
The driver carried the clock in for me and positioned it where I wanted. He was very helpful and took care about removing his shoes when he came into the house.
Overall an excellent service."

Full packing and removal of 4 bed house across counties, including a wooden play house, kayaks and a very heavy desk, plus the usual house contents.
 
Cost: £2200
 

"I can't fault the service we received. Reece, Paul and Greg where fantastic! The packing process was quick, organised and well protected. They ensured that anything we would need was put to one side and labelled everything making unpacking so much easier. They even checked items that we had forgotten eg my bank card reader ensuring added stress was avoiding before it even happened!
They turned up on time on both days and worked hard, whilst keeping a sense of humour making the whole experience a positive. We honestly could recommend them more highly!"

As mine was a long distance move the furniture was packed into the van on day one and delivered to my new address the next day.
 
Cost: £1500
 

"The three removal men, Andy, Gavin and Malcolm were extremely speedy and, in spite of moving some large and difficult objects were all at time careful and extremely cheerful. All of this helped the somewhat trauma of this move. They also took great care not to leave any marks, having layed protective sheeting to the carpets.

I had packed 43 boxes and these, with a large amount of furniture, were moved into the furniture van with amazing speed. All the above was carried out at relatively short notice at an extremely competitive rate and I would certainly recommend this removal company to anyone wanting a speedy, carefully orchestrated move.

A downsize from a large detached bungalow to a smaller detached house outside the area. Quote included packing of belongings including some guitars and an amplifier. We also had lots of china and glass, which was very carefully packed and safely delivered to the new address.
 
Cost: £1900
 

"Britannia Anchor Removals provided a very efficient and well-organised service from start to finish and their service is exemplary.
I would have no hesitation in recommending them to friends and family in the future.
From the initial visit by Tony, Jayne's regular help and support with questions about the move, and to Paul and the whole removal team's positive, professional and diligent approach to packing and safely delivering our belongings to the new house, they provide a seamless approach to moving hgouse. Our furniture removal was certainly the least stressful aspect of the whole 'Moving House Journey' for us.

Thank you for all your help and support. It is greatly appreciated."

We moved from Worsley to Scotland
 
Cost: £3000
 

"The level of service we experienced from start to finish was superb. Extremely profession and friendly.

Mark and Wes (hope I have got their names right) was SUPERB. They emptied our house effficiently and with a smile. The following day we stayed in touch to update them when we could get access to the new Scottish property. They were so flexible. By the time we finally got access it was mid afternoon which meant they were working into the dark and despite this they never complained and their smiles remained.

This is the best level of customer service have had had in a long time and have been telling everyone about your business!

We moved on 16/17 Dec so please pass our personal thanks on to the team. We were very impressed with the service. Wishing you the best for 2022. Kind regards, Meg and David Moore xIt was all wonderful. Thank you"

Move from one 3 bed house to another over distance of 2 miles with several large items, some requiring dismantling. Some items to be left and very good communication to ensure correct items moved.
 
Cost: £800
 

"Absolutely excellent service, quoted and arranged efficiently with very helpful discussion of requirements. On the day arrived on time and moved fast with good communication of items to be left or moved and where to put items in new house. Very helpful with removal of some large and awkward items, including some dismantling and reassembly. Large wardrobe moved upstairs with ingenuity. Courteous and professional at all times. Clean with use of floor protectors at both properties. Would highly recommend."
