"Excellent support from the sales team to accommodate a late changes to the dates and worked hard to find a way to accommodate us in what was a very busy period for them.

Goods out of storage to one bed flat with no parking outside. So a bit of a tedious job.

"Guys arrived on time and cheerfully moved an twice at neighbours request to move cars. They were very reassuring. I was very impressed with the way everything was packed, especially my lovely light blue sofa which was completely wrapped and lovingly carried in without it touching anything! Guys were friendly and hard working. The whole operation went very well. They even put my clothes in the wardrobe and assembled my wooden bed."

"Excellent, stress free from beginning to end. Called Gilles removals from a recommendation at short notice and they were able to accommodate us, even moving their schedule to ensure two consecutive days. Packing on day one went smoothly; staff very friendly and helpful; items packed and some loaded. Moving day was again carried out with same good humour and efficiency. Van arrived at new property before keys were released and despite later unpacking, the men were always on hand to carry and put items in place. Office staff empowered excellent, very helpful and informative. Would use this firm again.

Excellent throughout. Mad a very stressful and fraught experience much more manageable. Both the office staff and the removals men had very good people skills, knew their jobs and worked effectively to make the move a success. Great teamwork!"

Residential move from a 4 bed 3 storey terrace to a detached house in Knowle.
 
Cost: £2200
 

"David Gilkes were fantastic. They communicated excellently throughout and were flexible and accommodating to our needs and the changing timescale considering COVID restrictions. Their cancellation waiver allowed us to work together to find the right time to move and saved us a fair amount. All the guys were friendly, polite and professionals at their work. I was thoroughly impressed and couldnít recommend them highly enough. The NHS discount was an added bonus. Thank you!"

Moved from a 4 bed to a 5 bed 7 miles away Dec 2020.
 
Cost: £1400
 

"Guys were polite and hard working. However they had a job cramming all our goods into the vehicles. Unfortunately some goods went missing in transit. This was reported to the company but they havenít resolved it. We took out extra insurance but they said it didnít cover missing items. Donít know if I could recommend them after this."

Move from a large five bedroom house with plenty of outbuildings to a smaller four bedroom house. Service included packing as well as removing items into storage plus the move itself. All took place over three days.
 
Cost: £3300
 

"Right from the off, the David Gilkes team were great. The survey was done virtually in light of Covid and Kate was very professional, clear and took an accurate note of what was required. We received our quote promptly with services and comments clearly made and itemised where relevant. Following booking, Gill in the office was really helpful in clarifying the plan and was very understanding regarding my request for Covid tests for all concerned. The move itself was made incredibly easy. All the packing and removals team were highly professional and exceptionally polite. The packing was done with great care and attention to detail with items labelled clearly so we could identify where they needed to go. The team were careful with our belongings when moving and were happy to reposition items when requested as well as making a final (unscheduled) trip to the storage container. I canít rate the individuals within the team highly enough And would highly recommend David Gilkes - a first class service."
 
 
Team:
Kate, Gill, Pete and Paul spring to mind but it was all the removals team who deserve a mention.

"The whole experience was first class, right from the start of just calling up for a quote, Tabitha was so helpful and accommodating, sorting out moving dates and packing dates was effortless, and then the packing and moving team were so friendly and helpful, it made the whole moving experience a lot easier.
I would strongly recommend David Gilkes to anyone."

The move was reasonably local, but the company are so efficient that it saves a lot of worry and hassle to use them.

"It was really easy. The two gentlemen who did the removal were quick and efficient and put everything where we asked. I have used David Gilkes before and would use again - every time!"

We were moving from Rugby to Bidford-on-Avon (approx 45 mins away). We chose to dismantle furniture and pack our items ourselves and were looking for a company to move our belongings. We wanted a local company with a good reputation. David Gilkes were brilliant from start to finish, due to Covid a video call appointment was made and during this they were able to see what belongings we had, they also went through the process explaining everything in detail, we then received a quote via email. Our move took place on the 21st December. On the day the team were punctual, polite, efficient and very professional, taking care of all our belongings when loading and unloading the container.

"David Gilkes were brilliant from start to finish, due to Covid we had a video call appointment during which they explained the process in detail and were able to see all our belongings, we then received a quote via email which was very competitive. We were looking to move around Christmas time but the completion date kept changing, communication with the ladies in the office was fantastic,they continuously assessed the changing situation to try to accommodate us, which was challenging due to the very busy time of year, but they managed to get it all arranged and we moved the beginning of Christmas week. On the day the team were punctual, polite and friendly, efficient and very professional, taking good care of our belongings when loading and unloading the container, everything went very smoothly and it was stress free for us. We would have no hesitation to use David Gilkes again in the future and would definitely recommend them."

We moved from a small cottage to a bigger family home. The remove required two days as there was a lot of garden plants and tubs and equipment in the sheds to move too.
 
Cost: £1400
 

"Gilkes were fantastic from our initial contact through to the final moving day. They were very helpful dropping off packing materials as soon as we needed them and giving packing advice at the quote stage. The removal guys could not have been nicer and more helpful. They took great care with our items and were keen to help position furniture when we arrived in exactly the place we required so we didn't have to move anything twice. They even unpacked a couple of boxes that had got damp due to a leaky tumble dryer so the items didn't get wet. Everything was done with good humour and nothing was too much trouble for them. This is the second move Gilkes have done for us and both moves have been to the same high standard. We would have no hesitation recommending their service, we can't thank them enough for making our move so much easier."
