We had to move in a rush, and due to our buyers it had to be a Friday. We knew this is one of the busiest days. But even at short notice, David Gilkes and sons handled this with aplomb! An interesting feature of our move was the number of garden items we have. Planted pots, furniture, statues etc, and the team were just brilliant! We were moving from a large house to a much smaller one, so we had to do a lot of ''creative ''storage in the new again, again the guts were amazing. Another area that struck us, was the eagerness to help us with the washing machine, which had to fit into a ver tight space, once again, the guys were totally fab.

"It was easy and brilliant right from the first call. We had a quote from one other company, and I had a couple of virtual quotes. David Gilkes virtual quote was quick and straight forward.

Another point is David Gilkes moved us in and out in one day. One of the other companies wanted to do this over 3 days!

The team were efficient, and very respectful of our home. I thought it was so wonderful they way they appreciated the drinks and biscuits I gave to them. Every time they shared their appreciation, and they did that on leaving too.

They worked until late and never moaned or groaned about having to do that.

We are in a temporary house for 6 months, and will certainly use then next time."

Sorry can't recall, they were brilliant though

Move within Rugby from 4 bed to bigger 4 bed with 3 children
 
Cost: £2000
 

"Kate came to view the house and provide a quote. Very efficient quotation process. Able to answer all questions and queries. Emailed the quote across quickly and easy payment system online. She continued to answer questions prior the move date.

Packers came the day before, we were able to stay out of their way. Came home to whole house packed and well organised and labelled boxes.

Removal day with 4 guys and 2 trucks. Advised us their time schedule and we’re ahead of time with an lunch break included.

Unpacked into all the correct rooms, no breakages and furniture placed in correct positions to avoid moving again.

An excellent experience and team, would highly recommend to anyone"

Domestic move across town

"We were returning customers to David Gilkes and, once again, they did an outstanding job. The move was delayed and stressful, but the one party we were able to rely upon was the movers. They were flexible, courteous and the staff both in the office and on site could not have been more helpful."

Move to new house approx 8 miles away - 5 bedroom house worth''s of furniture/belongings, including piano, garden equipment etc
 
Cost: £3257
 

"We had a really positive experience with David Gilkes, from the original quotation and survey through to the move itself and helping collect the mountain of boxes after our move!

We found everyone that we came into contact with to be friendly, polite, considerate and great at communication, even if there were small problems or issues to overcome. The entire team were great with our daughters and we felt really confident about the entire move and that we were in safe hands.

We spoke to three companies about our move and David Gilkes stood out as being competitive on price, great at advice on how to approach our move and delivered a great result over 3-4 days to move us successfully.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the team at David Gilkes if you're looking to move house in the future.

We moved from home to storage. Full packing service Including the removal and storage of small trees in pots.

"The help and advice about our requirements were very comprehensive and reassuring.
The sales advice and options given we’re helpful.
The staff deployed to pack and remove to store could not have been better.
They were organised, meticulous, careful and put our needs and requirement at the centre
of their operations.
All staff have been courteous, helpful and knowledgable.
We are comfortable that the move from store to our new home will be treated with care and consideration.
"

Move from 5 Bedroom Detached house in Rugby to 3 Bedroom Bungalow in Snettisham, Norfolk including packing
 
Cost: £2570
 

"The move entailed David Gilkes packing my furniture on the Monday, loading up on Tuesday and unpacking at the Bungalow on Wednesday.
Everyone one involved was exceptionally professional, very careful with my belongings and very friendly.
The packing process was well thought out and resulted in a trouble free move.

There were three people involved in the packing and two for the loading and unloading.

The care and attention taken was first class."

Moved from a 4-bed townhouse to a 4-bed detached house. Driving time between properties approximately 45 minutes.
 
Cost: £1400
 

"We were really happy with the service we received. The staff I spoke to on the phone to arrange the move were polite and very helpful. The moving staff on the day were fantastic. They knew exactly what they needed to do and just got on with it. They were friendly and polite and we couldn't have asked for better service."

We have used David Gilkes & Sons Ltd before, it is a hard working company who aim to please.

"The staff are always pleasant and helpful, the packers are always cheerful and helpful and let’s face it it’s not easy packing other people’s belongings.
This move was not easy for us as I had broken my shoulder a few weeks before, the men were so considerate of my condition I have nothing but praise for them and a big thank you for making the transition as stress free as possible."

Customer Review
 
Big move (c. 200 miles), requiring a large lorry plus a smaller transit van. The packing up happened across three days and then the unloading occurred on the 4th day. We opted for a crockery and glass packing service otherwise we packed boxes ourselves. We had some large items including a piano.
 
Cost: £308279
 

"We moved from the south coast to Warwickshire and therefore it was a big move in terms of distance. It was also a big move in terms of furniture and belongings and required a large lorry plus a smaller transit van. The packing up happened across three days and then the unloading occurred on the 4th day. We opted for a crockery and glass packing service otherwise we packed boxes ourselves. The team were excellent from the beginning; they arrived on time and worked hard throughout. They dismantled various bits of furniture and were professional in all aspects of the move.
I would thoroughly recommend this company.

200 mile move within the UK. Mid week. 4 bed detached to 4 bed detached. Narrow private access at the new property.
 
Cost: £2600
 

"The company could not have been more helpful. We previously moved home 20 years ago and that was done by ourselves. Things have changed! The event was not easily planned, other factors such as legal and estate agents were not helpful and as a result we had to be VERY flexible, Gilkes understood and went with the flow. On the day the guys couldn't have worked harder, they certainly earn their money and more. The 200 mile move went very smoothly and the only breakage we had was a minor item which on the face of it was down to our packing. I have no issues at all with Gilkes removals and would highly recommend them. Pricing was the best by a long way and other companies were either trying to rip us off or didn't want the job. Cheerful and polite staff are in abundance at Gilkes. A difficult time made much more pleasant."

We made a long distance move with Gilkes, recently.

"From the first visit, through a couple of modifications to the plans and the actual move we found the company very easy to deal with. Any snags were handled with goodwill. We felt very confident in their organisation and were justified by a trouble free move.

We'd happily recommend this company to friends, as it was recommended to us.

No advice on improvement and absolutely no call for bad language!"

Could not have been anything but helpful and understanding.

"Moved to my new address, as I was having a bad day though going through cancer treatment. The guys were so understanding and helpful, packing the rest of the house, leaving the lounge till last so I could rest. When moving into my new property, the unloaded a chair first so I could sit and give my orders where I wanted the boxes. Could not have been more understanding or helpful. Could not recommend them enough."

Our move was a 4 bed detached with two out buildings and a double garage. The distance between the properties involved was 200 miles. I moved some very fragile items in my own vehicle purely because they would be hard/impossible to replace if damage occurred. The property we moved to was awkward to access but they did it without fault and didn''t prove to be any problem to our new neighbours.
 
Cost: £2600
 

"They were the only company who had a procedure in place to view what was needed to be moved in person and respecting social distancing etc. As a result we were given a truly accurate quote which we believed was very fair. (Other companies who quoted did it via video and as a result, I believe did not get a true feel for the job involved and as a result were seriously over priced.) The company were very patient with us because the legal teams involved in the move were not the best and there was very little surety of an exact date of the move until the last couple of days. Everything was explained and we were very happy with their terms and conditions. The guys arrived exactly as arranged and they worked like hell. Superb service. Everything was packaged well in the lorry and they exceeded our expectations. We expected breakages, but what damage we suffered, (a broken cup and a broken light bulb), was amazing. Especially as both were as a result of our wrapping! Staff in the office were so helpful and cheerful, honestly, the company can't be faulted. The guys came prepared with a few extra boxes..... just in case..... and they really did save our skin. My collection of rare beers even survived! I cannot praise this company enough."

Relocation from Warwickshire to Merseyside, which required my furniture including an upright piano, going into storage.
 
Cost: £1500
 

"My family and I have used David Gilkes Removals on numerous occasions over the years.
Their service is outstanding, from Jill, Kate and Tabitha in the office dealing with the quotes, paperwork and organising everything impeccably.
On the moving days, the team arrived on the dot, and made the whole experience virtually stress free! Polite, hardworking, nothing is to much trouble and they only left when they were satisfied there was nothing left to help me with.
Can't praise them highly enough and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them (and have done on numerous occasions) if you want the best, look no further, you won't be disappointed."
 
 
Team:
All of them!

Moved from Warwickshire to Devon and furniture was in storage for 7 weeks, including my husbands beloved BMW 1200 RS.

"Cannot recommend David Gilkes & Sons highly enough, from the initial quote, contact with the office staff through to the actual move. We had the full packing service and then all of our belongings went into storage, whilst we moved to Devon and waited to complete on our forever home. We had some delays whilst waiting to complete and David Gilkes & Sons were so accommodating. Seven weeks later our furniture was delivered to us in Devon. Again, the guys were so very helpful and friendly."
