"Excellent professional service. GB Liners protected all our possessions with due care and attention. Having not moved house for 25 years, GB liner staff supported and guided us through out the process. This included providing packing materials, protective covers ect. They dealt with organising the ferry to N Ireland from Liverpool. And safe delivery on the other side. Our possessions were carefully packed onto the lorry. Taken 250 miles across the Irish sea. Lovely friendly staff who were at the end of the phone for any questions. We cant rate GB Liners highly enough, well done team."

"We were very happy with Daleys especially since it was a smaller van (due to space for parking) and they were able to remove some of our furniture on the first day and deliver to our new home and then do the same the following day. It made it much easier for us to be able to get things in place over the span of two days. We would highly recommend this company."

We are perfectly placed in Manchester and Birmingham for all of your local, national, and international move requirements, to help with a stress free move.
"The initial volume estimate by a member of staff who came to our home, was WAY off - both in terms of the number of boxes needed and the size of the lorry necessary. Consequently, the packing and moving took far longer than expected, but the packers/movers were absolutely brilliant in dealing with the unexpected workload, were really friendly and professional and did a great job. We'd definitely recommend them!"

Based in Manchester, Great Removals have 10 years of experience providing a professional home removal service across Manchester and the whole of the UK.
"In the weeks before the move, Sunny came to see the property and assured us that everything would fit inside the van they had planned. However on the day Abi, our chief packer, quickly looked at everything and said that actually all our stuff would not fit into the van as planned and originally claimed. Therefore they had to come back in 2 days to collect the remaining things, at the extra expense to ourselves of £600, to which we were not very pleased. Nonetheless Abi was great, he was efficient, knew his job well and was very helpful. He understood our position, was very professional and tried his best to help with the unfortunate situation. His two helpers were not quite as experienced as Abi, so needed Abi's supervision. In summary, all our items arrived intact at the destination and were carefully packed. However it took an extra two days longer than we had planned due to them bringing a too small van and it cost us a lot of extra money. If using these movers I would recommend you check carefully with them about the van size required during the initial survey."

A and P Removals have over 30 years' experience of delivering a high quality home removal, packing and storage service based in Lancaster and Preston.
"To say we were pleased with the service from A And P Removals would be an understatement. Our load wasn't straightforward and we could have packed things better but the lads didn't complain - they got on with it quickly and efficiently. Nothing was too much trouble for them and the stress that we were initially suffering ebbed away once these lads got stuck in. It was a big effort on both sides of the move and our expectations were surpassed. No hesitation in awarding them too marks! R.Smith, Southport."
