At Via Removals and Storage, we have the expertise to ensure your house or office move is completed safely, smoothly and efficiently.
"Via did a fantastic job for me. I can't recommend them highly enough. Legal difficulties meant that I couldn't book a mover until the day before and it was not only a regularly full four-bedroom house, but also a garage and loft conversion containing 1000s of heavy old 78rpm records (140 boxes), which we didn't know till late in the day that the team would also have to move those after being let down by the friend who was going to help with this more special job. They were absolutely fantastic, and, as if these circumstances weren't bad enough, they also had to deal with the new owners being completely unreasonable and vile to them and even throwing them out of the house at one point, but they were totally professional down to the last man. I can't thank them enough. I'm sorry its taken a month for me to be able to get this review written, but I couldn't do it from my phone for some reason and I've only just got the laptop set-up with the internet in the new house. I wish Via all the very best for business in the future and I similarly wish all the very best to each and every one of those wonderful lads who were fabulous under those awful circumstances. HEROES !!"
