    We were moving from Southampton to East Devon having been in the same place for 14 years. We'd never used a removals company before and, with an upright piano and plenty of musical instruments to shift, I'll admit to a little nervousness. With that in mind, I can't praise 1st Choice enough. The video survey was thorough and professional, communication was fantastic... and on the day, Tom and Steve were fantastic - they made the tricky part (the piano) look easy at either end, we're just the sort of good natured helpful chaps you'd want to have around during a home move, and... I've left it until we've been through every box before writing this... no breakages at all!

    Very pleasing experience: a thorough and accurate survey done via FaceTime call. The team of two arrived at 08.30 and could not have been more friendly, communicative and respectful of the rental property we were moving from and too. They used floor and door protection and left no marks anywhere. The move was over two days and was made a less stressful experience thanks to 1st choice. Absolutely recommend.

    I would highly recommend 1st Choice. The quote was comprehensive and explained all the insurances and how everything was going to be packed. On moving day they turned up on time and took care with all our possessions, which all arrived intact in the new house. The guys were really friendly and professional. The only improvement I think they could make to their service is to give you a call a week or two before the move to reconfirm the arrangements.

    We had a fish gun taking which is very rare. The two young men were very interested in it. We sent a message to the company to say we couldn't find it and could they look into it for us. The next day the gun was left by the front door.
    The men did. Work very hard on the day.

    Frankly I was very disappointed with their service.
    They chipped my chest drawers and dropped it as they were loading it in the van as they didn't tape the drawers, and they broke off my side railing for the stairs while carrying furniture.

    I don't recommend anyone use their services!

    A number of items were damaged including an expensive B&O TV and despite being assured that all operatives were full time employees on the 2nd day of the 2 day removal one of the operatives was part time and in our experience was slapdash in his approach and the damage only occurred on the 2nd day!

    Great team who moved us out and in with great care. Only issue was that many of the marked boxes ended up in the garage, not the house, but maybe this was because there was no room in the house to put them!

    There was a large piece of furniture that I requested to be disposed of. On the day of moving, they left it by the side of my house and gone. I have phoned them up the day after and I am currently waiting to see how they will respond.

    Response:
    The item was collected the very next day and disposed of as arranged.

    The removal men were very accommodating and helpful, but the estimator must have originally underestimated our move and on the second day, the office and manager told the two poor men to just do what they could and leave anything that wouldna??t fit in the van. Luckily I hadna??t paid them in advance and refused to do so until they actually took everything that wea??d been quoted for. We couldna??t leave the house with a garage full of items because we were completing the sale the following morning!
