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"
 
 
Team:
Nick and Gareth were with us throughout. Can't recall others.

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."
 
 
Team:
Sorry I have forgotten their names but we moved on the 6/03/20 and they packed for us on the 5th.

Customer Review
 
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.

Special thanks to Wayne and Steve - both great - made easy work of difficult circumstances!

Our move was from York in the UK to a small village near Poitiers in France. We put our goods into storage with Appleyards for a period of 4 months. Our goods arrived in France promptly after we got the keys to our new house.
 
Cost: £3000
 

"Service was prompt and efficient, with no glitches at all. Staff were able to answer our questions and gave us confidence that our goods would be secure in storage (4 months).

Our goods arrived in France promptly after we moved in and the team were polite and efficient. They gave us plenty of notice of their arrival, and they arrived on time.

Care was taken when loading and unloading and nothing was damaged in any way. The team asked where boxes etc needed to go, and placed them in the right rooms as directed."

Moving items of furniture and personal effects from NW France to NE England. Everything done as planned.

"Difficult to say in that everything went according to plan, they arrived to pick up exactly as organised and then did the same with unloading. Quote on phone was exactly what we paid. I am hoping never to move again but if we did I would not hesitate to use them again. I would certainly recommend them to anyone else."

Moved to a new build just before Christmas, with a period of 2 weeks between moving out of my previous house to my new property, which meant my furniture and belongings needed to be stored in the interim.
 
Cost: £1100
 

"Fantastic service from start to finish, especially considering the moving date wasnít fixed until a week before due to delays with the new build schedule. Quotes were provided promptly, as were packing materials, and the removal men were courteous and efficient. This is the third time Iíve used Britannia Appleyard and Iíve had the same great experience every time. Would highly recommend."

Moved from a 4 bedroom house to a bungalow just across the road

"Have used the company before, hence the reason for booking on this occasion. The staff were extremely helpful. Once again the service provided was excellent and all work completed as agreed. We would have no hesitation in using Appleyards again should we need to do so and would be happy to recommend to other people."
