Customer Review
 
Our request was to empty two of our storage containers from the warehouse and transport them to our home approx 40 miles away. The load comprised of furniture and approx 21 boxes to be taken into the house or into a weather proof summer house at the top of the garden. The vehicle had a driver plus an assistant, but additionally they diverted another van which was delivering nearby and so we had three men to unload.
 
Cost: £1
 

"This firm conveys a very good standard of customer service.
Their rates are quite competitive.

They do a large amount of distance removals, and many are to the continent of Europe. Very experienced in this. A long established firm.

They were hard working and willingly did whatever we asked them to do in terms of positioning things. Very pleasant at all times. The Management were also very flexible and helpful, to accommodate our timetable and answer those few questions we had. I would not hesitate to engage this firm again."

From large to smaller. Challenging drive! Valuable items & some very heavy furniture.
 
Cost: £2200
 

"Very efficient although didnt expect house to be emptied on first of 3 days!
Felt rushed at the new property, emptying all wardrobe boxes was difficult especially as we didn't really know where to put everything amid already chaotic & cluttered areas.

The men all worked extremely hard but maybe need to take into consideration how exhausting the 3 days and prior to that. The move out was satisfactory but moving in too time limited.

"

Sorry, cant remember, we had different ones each day plus one or two of the same. However the driver did s sterling job & the new member ,Family I'm told, was very polite, professional and I'm sure makes a great addition to the team.

Customer Review
 
We moved from a four-bedroom vicarage to a smaller three-bedroom private house, so it was very much about downsizing (we sold some items, gave away others and took yet others to the dump), although we retained a large number of books and LPs and CDs. We packed most of the books ourselves. The move started on day one from 9 am and was completed in the old house by 10 am on day two. With only a journey of 12 miles or so, the unloading at the new house was finished before 2 pm. Everything went as smoothly as we could have hoped.
 
Cost: £1574
 

"It was clear that Appleyards were working with reduced staff in their office, as they had to be gently reminded about a number of things before the move, including sending us an invoice! But all the important aspects of the move were satisfactorily carried out and with the minumum of fuss. There were a couple of small bits of damage, but overall we were very satisfied with their work."

We moved from Sheffield, UK to Zeist, Netherlands during the Coronavirus pandemic. We moved all our household items including furniture, kitchen items and a bike.
 
Cost: £4024
 

"We had been in contact with a few removal companies as well as Britannia Appleyards and it was them that stood out for us. We first had Dave come and inspect the property with all our belongings in. He was very attentive to social distancing as well as wearing a protective mask. He was very friendly and approachable. Being first time movers, he completely understood what we wanted and didn't want during the move as well as answering our questions. The Handling of the quote was performed by Katie, who is a great woman to talk to and ask for reassurance. She was clear about the costs and told us when the movers will come to pack and deliver our goods.
With the initial removal day we had Wayne and Dave (Wayne came the day before to start packing items into boxes). Wayne is a really nice guy who takes care of what he does for a living and he did a great job at packing out items for us.
Wayne also dropped our belongings off to our new home, and had 2 other people to help him. They listened to us where we wanted the boxes and even went the extra mile by getting rid of some sofas in the living room by the previous tenants! They worked really hard to please us.
I am still unpacking boxes at the time of this review, and every box has been securely protected inside.
I would go to them again if I had to do another big move. We we're not disappointed with any part of the move. Highly recommended."

We moved from a three bedroomed bungalow to a three bedroomed house.
 
Cost: £629
 

"We arranged the removal at short notice due to the circumstances of the conveyancing. The staff were excellent and gave us a written quote. On the day the guys turned up on time and were brilliant. I was not allowed to carry anything and was advised to chill. At the new house the guys looked after everything and put things exactly where we requested. They made a stressful day much easier."

A basic move from London to Sheffield, but the company did an excellent job!

"The two chaps did an excellent job packing up the house. I was seriously impressed with how hard they worked. They were late arriving at the new house the next day, but the boss phoned to apologise and explain why. He sent 2 extra men with them to make up for lost time and they all worked very hard."

I moved to France post uk lockdown Appleyards collected my furniture just before lockdown and stored it safely in their depot until they were able to travel to France with it. I gave them a key and they took my furniture two weeks before i arrived in France. I gave them written instructions as to where to put everything When I arrived at my French house two weeks later everything was where it should have been, house secure and key handed over to my neighbours I was very grateful after such a long journey to get to France
 
Cost: £1900
 

"Moving abroad is a big commitment and Appleyards made the whole process easy to understand, were very flexible, patient, accommodating and courteous"

Move back to the UK from France on our retirement during a global pandemic.
 
Cost: £4772
 

"We moved back to the UK from France at a very complicated time with the Covid-19 pandemic creating a lot of uncertainty and many restrictions. Appleyards were brilliant in finding ways of overcoming the difficulties and making the move happen. They went out of their way to be accommodating and could not have been more helpful. They even held the price that had been quoted under very different circumstances. Their staff were at all times friendly, polite, punctual and efficient. One or two minor items suffered damage during the journey, but our overall experience was very positive and we would recommend them without hesitation."

Move from France to UK.

"Initial contact was made by email and followed up by telephone. Questions were answered clearly and promptly. The two gentlemen who carried out the initial move were friendly while being totally professional.The same is said for the part delivery to a temporary address while the rest of our belongings remain in storage awaiting a final delivery. The lady who we have dealt with via email has been very efficient. Have no negative comments at all."

Moved from a large detached house to a slightly smaller house and garden two miles distant We had a full packing and unpacking service

"We were impressed with the packing but unfortunately a couple of items were damaged when unpacked, one of which we felt should not have occurred.

The business of which box to put where was largely good but not totally so. Boxes were labelled with where the contents had come from but not where they were to go with the result that some were put in the wrong rooms.

The removals men were very obliging and helpful"

Move was quick and efficient and we''ll co-ordinated. Before leaving the removers made sure we had things where we wanted them. Because of my husband''s mobility problems they ensured the chair and aids he needed were last on the van and first off at the new address

"Everyone we dealt with was polite, helpful and considerate.
They made the removal as painless as possible."

Ill heath and old age crept up on us! We had a very large house in France, spread over 4 floors and we had far too many big, heavy contents. Moving back to the UK after living in Spain, then France for more than 20 years was very sad for us, but it was necessary. It was a very difficult decision and an even more difficult process sorting out "essentials" from our accumulated treasures and possessions. These included a selection of our grandchildren''s things, such as quad bikes... So we had a very bulky and difficult list of contents. So we planned well ahead, sold the house and ordered our removals months ahead of target dates. All was organised... or so we thought...!

"We moved back to the UK after living abroad for many years. We originally booked with another contractor and our move was thoroughly planned some months ahead. BUT on the Sunday morning, less than 48 hours before our scheduled departure we had a call from our contractor saying his lorry had broken down and "Sorry, can't help you now" was his message.

Our pet passports meant that we were limited to when we could get into the UK without further vet visits and the dreaded Brexit was just a few days away.... It was a nightmare senario.

Absolute panic set in. I spent two hours on the internet looking for solutions. But it was Sunday...! We were really stressed and worried about how to resolve this seemingly impossible problem.

But then I found a small entry on our local community Facebook site. Britannia Appleyards were in the area - so rang them and left a message on their office answerphone - in Rotherham. It was a Sunday morning - and I got a reply from David Appleyard within an hour. He was a very helpful young man, business-like, sympathetic and reassuring. And his price was very reasonable too, especially given the circumstances!

The Britannia Appleyards team (Wayne and Steve) turned up on Tuesday morning which was perfect timing for us. They took great care to pack the enormous lorry and trailer paying detailed attention to everything. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Two great lads, experienced and very professional throughout the whole move.

A few days later they delivered everything to our new address. This time we had a team of 4 to offload and install some very heavy and difficult furniture. We hadn't realised that our new house had such restricted access! The hallway was impossibly narrow and most of our furniture was too big. But our Appleyards team dealt with it all without bumping, denting or scuffing any of the newly painted walls or doors.

It was so nice working with this team of young men who had such high standards and who genuinely cared about doing a good job. Thank you to all of them, especially Wayne and Steve, without whom we could not have survived this most traumatic move!

Maureen & Dennis Walby, now in Revesby, Lincs.
