Move with full packing service from London to Brighton.

"Alan and the team from Rumsey and Son were great. Turned up on time and we were on the road by 10.30am. Our completion was delayed as the bank did a random spot check on the transfer of funds, which caused several hours of delays and meant we didnít get the house keys until late afternoon. Despite this the team stayed to get the move complete. They were polite, professional and understanding throughout. Would highly recommend their services."

We have moved from London out to rural France as taking early retirement and looking for a laid back life style.

"From 1st contact we found Rumsey very professional, from home visit to collection and storage of our belongings before shipment to France. what stands out was the personal touch from site visit to collection, transhipment to anther carrier for the International part of delivery. We were most impressed with Rumsey Staff for collection and also Able's staff for delivery to France."

A move from a 4 bed family home to another 4 bed family home about 2 miles away. The move included two fish tanks.
 
Cost: £3384
 

"The whole team was amazing on both day and efficiently worked away to make the move a very simple process for us.
They were friendly and nothing was too much trouble despite having 3 beds to dismantle and rebuild and two fish tanks to move.
They took care in packing and everything was delivered to the correct rooms in the new house.

Debbie and Peter in the office were very helpful and held our move slot for several days when our buyer was messing around before exchange.

Would highly recommend Rumsey and Sons."
 
 
Team:
Iím not sure of names but they were all amazing!

A complicated move from a large house into storage and 2 different properties.
 
Cost: £12000
 

"I cannot praise Rumsey and Sons enough. I have used them in the past and I wasn't disappointed again. They were extremely efficient , clear about the process and careful with our possessions. The team who actually did our packing and move were outstanding, very helpful and really understanding. Rumseys are a local firm and I am delighted to support them and cannot recommend them enough."

Team collected some previously stored goods from the storage depot, and then moved onto the property where items were moved and delicates such glass wrapped by the team and packed. Move of the complete goods to the new property went well as did the unloading. We unpacked and arranged collection of used boxes and wrapping paper at a convenient time.

"Move went well and managed to get all done on time as planned. Only some slight damage issues which were promptly resolved, so many thanks to the hard working team."

The team moved us out of the old property over 4 days, and into the new over 3.

"The team at Rumsey were very helpful and patient with us, particularly as we had to change the delivery address and date more than once!

They were efficient, friendly, professional and nothing was too much trouble. We felt very comfortable having them around, the packing was done with great care and precision, as was the unpacking at the other end.

Would definitely recommend Rumsey - in fact, we already have!

The administration service was faultless, and we definitely had the A team for packing. Efficient, tidy and friendly.

Thank you."

Cost: £3100
 

"The service we received from Rumsey and Son was beyond exceptional, and to summarise just how good it was, my entire family contracted covid two days before our move, it took a couple of phone calls to Stuart at Rumsey to run through the move without our presence at either house, and a few calls from the moving team on the moving days to get everything moved without any hassle whatsoever. They were professional, understanding, careful, thorough and a really kind bunch of guys and we cannot thank them enough for getting us moved in during such a difficult time."
 
 
Team:
Jim and team. Stuart back at the shop was really great too.

Exit 5th floor flat with lift Contents split between 2nd floor rental flat, no lift, and storage with Rumseys
 
Cost: £3000
 

"Initial confusion over what I wanted - did I not make it sufficiently clear? It meant a bit of friction between me and admin to start with but we got past it.

Team who came were good, they worked hard and at all times were polite and considerate. They seemed to be taking care of me!"

I appreciate the fact that the removal men basically put up with the fact that I have a lot of stuff, and a lot had to be packed in order to extract the furnature (because we moved in a hurry - due to finding a window of opportunity) they had to do the packing for me. They might have had a few grumbles, but they were basically helpful. They packed all the china etc very well, and looked after any furnature that needed dissassembling well (putting it backtogether). They also moved our piano satisfactorily I did have a little issue on stuff that was brought out of storage, when they turned up 40 minutes before the agreed time, and insisted they were only 20 minutes early.

"Rumseys are a long established local firm, and it shows. People trust them locally, and in my experience they lived up to their local reputation.

The person who came to do the quotes was extremely helpful, and took my requirements in their stride.
The removal men themselves, despite a few grumbles, did a good job, packing as required, and disassembling and reassembling furniture. They also moved the piano satisfactorily. All the china and kitchen stuff was properly packed.
The men were generally helpful about placing furniture in the house.
Of stuff that was moved into storage and later brought back out then men were extremely helpful with this too, and any damage was of such a minor nature as to be not worth mentioning (nothing a very little DIY wouldn't put right). - which is a lot better than some firms would do.
I think for me the main thing was they put up with the fact that our move was done in a hurry (as we took a window of opportunity) which meant we had done very little preparation ourselves.
They were also helpful about moving around a few items that needed moving to different rooms in the house.
There was a little issue when the team bringing items from storage turned up 40 minutes early and then made a mistake with the time syaing they were only 20 minutes early. But they subsequently apologised for the mistake. (I would not have minded, but I had particularly specified the time), however they made up for it by being very helpful when they unloaded.
Generally I found the firm attuned to our specific requirements. I also felt they took good care of our furniture and possessions. ((Much better care than Pickfords took of a relative's furniture a few years ago). I felt confident the men knew exactly what they were doing. For example they said an item would not fit, then that is genuinely because it would not fit.
Rumseys are trusted professionals and the current teams maintain the firm's reputation.
"
 
 
Team:
Both the moving team and the storage team were helpful. I am afraid I can't remember the names of all the individuals.

We agreed to be packed up on Thursday for completion on Friday they arrived right on time 08:30. Walked through the house to see what was staying and what being loaded on that day.
 
Cost: £3260
 

"It was amazing from exchanging contracts to the completion date,
It was unreal how we didn't have to pack a thing and by Thursday afternoon it was all on the lorry.except for the essentials.Friday
They arrived promptly they loaded the rest of the stuff on the lorry
We have a reptile so stated that would be last loaded and first into our new property which they did. We had an issue with the pipework with the washing machine where it was going but they even sorted that out.even dismantling our beds and putting them back together was a godsend.nothing was to much for the guys would highly recommend for removals"

A move of some distance, from a regional city to London. Done over two days.

"The team were brilliant. They had to work around my relative who turned out not to be quite prepared at the packing end. And then they faced rudeness from contractors at the new build. They were quick and good mannered throughout, despite the surrounding tensions."
