Temporary move to a smaller house to enable building works to commence, so picking bits and bobs from the house...and taking some back in from the van.

"I have used Wilkins for over 30 years. Its great when the team leader arrives and can remember moving you 25 years ago, whilst one of the others was in the team that moved you in 5 years ago.
Absolutely nothing was too much trouble, and the guys worked hard and cheerfully all day, even when discovering that we were moving to a 3 storey house with a narrow staircase.
I would not even contemplate using anyone else, and as always , you get what you pay for; professional, cheerful, courteous and patient."

We were downsizing to a smaller house,

"Hopefully our final move, therefore a lot of stress and the movers are always so calm and considerate (we have used them previously).

They were very efficient, took initiatives, helped the hysterical client (me!) worked quickly and well and then took some of the items on to our daughter at two different addresses and were remarkably quick and managed difficult items like the big fridge etc.

We moved to a house accessed by an archway which meant a smaller van and yet everything was perfectly accomplished with no fuss at all. Garden pots etc. were delivered last and, again, all with ease. We are very grateful and highly recommend Wilkins."

The re-location was a domestic re-location from South Oxfordshire to North Yorkshire spanning 3 days.

"Wilkins Removals of Henley-on-Thames were excellent.

An initial visit to our home to assess the volume of belongings was carried out quickly followed up by a detailed quotation.

Wilkins were able to accommodate our preferred moving date, and subsequently provided good quality packing boxes, including temporary wardrobes, in order to give us plenty of time to prepare our own (limited) packing. We chose the option for Wilkins to carry out packing of all breakables and I would always recommend this for insurance reasons. The guys arrived promptly on the agreed date, all our belongings were respected, very well protected, and carefully loaded.

Everything was re-located without problem. The guys were extremely careful, polite, and made the experience as pleasant as possible. They helped us to settle in to our new home by re-erecting furniture and positioning it to our requirements. Nothing seemed too much trouble.

We would not hesitate to use Wilkins again and would strongly recommend them for their professional attitude and excellent customer service. We could not find any suggestions for improvement."

Cost: £20000
 

"I used Wilkins to clear out a BIG house in Fawley which my firm is instructed to refurbish for the owner.
I chose Wilkins for their 150 years of service to the local community.

I found them and all the team to be very friendly, helpful, professional, smart appearance and good value.

Since doing the 1st stage of moving out...our client has since instructed Wilkins to move various items of furniture to various other houses they have ...so all in all everyone is happy.
GREAT COMPANY AND GREAT SERVICE... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED"

we had the packing service which meant that the guys came 2 days before we moved and then on the removal day and then on the following day to finish unloading.
 
Cost: £4000
 

"The guys made the whole experience easy. We didn't have to worry about our belongings at all. They were friendly and always asked if they were unsure about things. Very pleased with the service and the collection of empty boxes as we gradually unpacked. Many thanks."

Customer Review
 
Wilkins moved me into a really awkward (but lovely!) house - a townhouse with five floors and a very narrow, awkward staircase. And it wasn''t just the house that was difficult; parking''s an absolute nightmare, especially if you have a pantechnicon.
 
Cost: £2500
 

"Wilkins did an absolutely brilliant job: incredibly good-natured, incredibly professional, and totally expert. They managed to get furniture into rooms I never, ever thought it would fit into.

The admin support was excellent, too - Andrea went to real trouble to sort out the parking issue ahead of the move.

I know they aren't the cheapest, but the fact is, if we'd gone with the cheapest we'd now have a massive bill for new furniture! This is the second time I've used them, and I'd use them again in a heartbeat"

Downsizing. Lots of turning out before the move - and then more after the move. Too many old family items.

"A dayís help with packing breakable items eased matters.
The men worked hard, speedily and efficiently.
We gradually unpacked over the following week or so, then phoned and the empty boxes and packing was collected.
Polite, efficient, thoughtful and caring from start to finish."

Absolutely brilliant service

"Absolutely brilliant service from start to finish. The girls in the office were really helpful right from the initial phone call. The removal went according to plan, so well organised and professional. Collection of removal materials within a week. All in all would highly recommend and thank all those involved in our move"

Pack all contents and move

"We picked Wilkens as our removal company as they have a good reputation as a well estabished local family business, we know many people who have used them. We were not disappointed and cannot recommed them highly enough.
A good company with excellent staff that know there business inside out.
The team that moved us were polite, efficient, hard working and a credit to the company. Thanks to all concerned."

We agreed a part pack service. We moved to Gt.Ayton in North Yorkshire. Day one the men arrived early and were very organised with each one knowing exactly what their job was and they carried them out very efficiently, they were respectful. Day two they men arrived at 6.30am to collect the bed, and set off to Gt.Ayton. They arrived just as we did and immediately unpacked ,which they completed by 6.30pm.
 
Cost: £3500
 

"As mentioned above the whole moving experience was made easier by the punctuality, efficiency and respectfulness of the removers.
We would recommend Wilkins to anyone."

Full packing service, plus removals, over 3 days

"Great experience of moving with Wilkins, from the original quotation, to the staff in the office who answered our many random move related questions, to the movers who packed & moved all our items. The 3 guys we had to pack & do the move were great, & put us completely at ease.
Cannot recommend Wilkins enough, the packing service was worth every penny, and they completely took the stress out of the moving day. Thank you."

Customer Review
 
We moved in 2 stages from a 5 bedroom house where we had loved for 26 years. Firstly to my Mother in Law''s house near Oxford and then later to our new house near Goring. So some belongings had to come to the Oxford house and the balance had to go into storage. Then the move from Oxford to Goring with various stored containers being delivered at later dates. A complicated move!

"I cannot recommend Wilkins of Henley highly enough. They were pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Their packing is fantastic. The staff carrying out the work and the deliveries are excellent. Customer service is second to none. We will use them again for sure when the time comes for our next move."

Customer Review
 
A thirty mile move from a large family house to a slightly smaller house, both on three floors with many stairs to climb up and down. Even my incompetence in leaving some keys that were packed was overcome by the Wilkins team unpacking one removal van at their premises and searching for, and finding, the keys.
 
Cost: £5500
 

"Everything happened as planned, the crew were friendly and helpful as well as extremely experienced. Everything was well packed and no damage was sustained, either to the possessions that were moved or to the houses that we were moving from and to. There were no surprises and the move was finished on time, although the crew were tired from many hours of walking up and down stairs."

Downsizing from one house to two apartments with storage required for six months.

"All staff were very helpful, both actual packing and transport team and office staff. One item for shipment to Canada was overlooked by both company and myself for several months but was finally successfully shipped.
The price was higher than competition but on balance was justified by the good service.
I had no complaints."
