Moved from one residential house to another on the same day.

" Van arrived on time as arranged. Lovely bunch of lads. Very pleasant to deal with and very skilled at what they do. They were a pleasure to deal with. House cleared very efficiently and fast. All items moved into new house. Everything placed where wanted. No damaged to any items. Very reasonably priced. I do not hesitate to recommend this company. You will not be disappointed.

Contacted them over the phone and got an appointment to come to the house and go through all aspects of the move. The gentleman who came was very easy to deal with and very knowledgeable and helpful. I had approached two other companies but I found that the level of service and price appealed to me best. Booked the move and paid full balance straight away as was a short notice move. Very happy with all aspects. Moving is a stressful time and I felt confident that all was arranged well."

3 lads all great but forgot their names. They were great!

WE moved at the end of October, our new house wasn''t ready yet so we had to move all our furniture into storage. We packed everything ourselves which in it''s self is hard work.
 
Cost: £1200
 

"The estimater came out about a month before the move. He was very professional explaining in great detail their service and what to expect.

Mr Shifter team arrived punctually and proceeded to remove the furniture onto the storage containers within their van. This was all done in a professional, cheerfull manner which seemed to take a lot of the strain away from us on a very otherwise stressfull day.

The removal team were extremely cheerfull and helpfull throughout the moving process.

We found the price to be competitive."

"Excellent customer care from start to finish. Easy to use website for online quote. Very fast response time via email and phone. They were happy to combine a partial in property move with a partial external move. They were on time and very efficient with their removal. They took care during the handling of my items and the property. Excellent value for money.

We had a full house move from Acklam to Ingleby Barwick.
 
Cost: £900
 

"From the moment Mr Shifter arrived at the old house until the very last box was unloaded in our new home the service was first class. Nothing was too much for Ian and Brad. They were courteous, punctual, professional and unbelievably helpful. Canít recommend them highly enough. I have 3 family members who will be moving in the next few months and have already told them to use Mr Shifter."

Full packing and move of our 6-bedroom townhouse, shed and garage in to storage between selling one house and delivery to a new address.
 
Cost: £3000
 

"Really good service. The lads were great and packed and moved our 6 bedroom house, shed and garage in to storage over the two hottest days of all time! Nothing was too much trouble, they worked non-stop and communicated well. Would recommend and use again. Canít wait to move it all back in to our new house! Ended up cheaper than original quote and a competitive price having looked at various options."

International move in shipping container, full house contents including paintings, china and glassware, with export wrapping
 
Cost: £6000
 

"Mr Shifter is a long-established family firm based on Teesside. I had used them previously for local moving. We obtained several quotes and theirs was the best. The wrapping and packing team were courteous, helpful, cooperative and very friendly. They arrived punctually and were professional, clean and tidy at all times. The managers answered questions quickly at every point by phone or email. In the most difficult of times with the conflict and Covid, the move went extremely well. We went from County Durham to South East Asia using a shipping container. The partnership company in Thailand were very professional. Every item of artwork, furniture, glass, china and a thousand books arrived unscathed thanks to strong boxing, careful paper wrapping and strong boxes. The price included three bespoke wooden crates for a large picture, a credenza and a harpsichord. This was our fourth international move including France, Germany and Thailand. It was outstandingly the smoothest. This firm is highly recommended for anything in removals. You will not get a better service at a better price anywhere."

General house move including all white goods and large furniture
 
Cost: £576
 

"This is the second time that I've used Mr. Shifter and, as last time, they were amazing! The teams were fast, friendly, and had the job done in no time. I honestly, can't recommend them highly enough.

The guys arrived promptly and were incredibly eager to chat throughout the whole move which helped keep things moving along and completely stress free."

From Peterborough to Redcar
 
Cost: £1000
 

"Good value for money ... straight quotation and no annoying up-selling.
--
Van arrived on time and the 2 guys were friendly and efficient. They just cracked on with the job of emptying the house and loading the van.
--
Delivery and unloading at the other end was just as efficient ... nothing damaged in transit either.
--
Great job done ... would definitely use them again."

Customer Review
 
We had some very large heavy furniture to move consisting of a great deal of marble. We moved from a 4 bed 2 storey house to a 2 bed ground floor apartment. All items were professionally handled by Mr Shifter including the wrapping of fragile items.
 
Cost: £400
 

"Only had large, heavy furniture to move but a great deal of marble was included. Kevin and Mark were incredible guys. Extremely pleasant, caring and very understanding of issues that I was worried about, as my husband has cancer abd was unable to help. They went above and beyond what was expected of them by making sure my husband and I were ok, and they even set everything up for us in our new home. Their kindness was second to none. If you want the best removal firm, then choose Mr Shifter. Their price was very competitive and the administration team very efficient, polite and pleasant to talk to. Its rare to find such competence and understanding in companies these days but Mr Shifter is in a class of its own. I highly recommend them. If you want to take the stress out of moving, I suggest you choose Mr Shifter, Im glad I did."

Domestic house move.
 
Cost: £4000
 

"We have twice used Mr Shifter for our house move, the second time being a move across the country and both involving putting all our things in storage. We were impressed with all stages of the process, from the initial visit from Jim, through the packing and storage to the final delivery to our new house. The operation was thoroughly professional and efficient but friendly and helpful at the same time. The office staff were particularly patient and helpful at a time when we were uncertain exactly when our removal date would be. We really couldnít fault anything and would recommend this company unreservedly."
