    I'm a disabled former serviceman with mobility problems and lived in a small bedsit, but still had all the 'stuff' like I lived in a 2 bedroom flat. All the quotes I had to move did not include ANY packing nor taking my bed apart. ALJ where cheaper than all the others, more than half as much than the most expensive quote, who told me when THEY would do it !
    ALJ turned up on time, were not phased by the amount of packing to be done, (I'd done what I could), took the bed apart and moved me with no fuss or hassle, putting the bed together at the new flat too !
    OUTSTANDING, is the only way to sum them up.

    Oh Chris thank you for your kind words! We really appreciate it!

    Dave & Liam were amazing, they made a stressful time so much easier. I was completely disorganised and unprepared but that didn't faze the guys! They were friendly, had a joke or two but were still very professional. They went above and beyond what I could have expected. I highly recommend the team, including Gill from the office. They weren't the cheapest quote I received but were still amazing value for money and I am so glad I chose ALJ Moving Services

    Gill of ALJ Moving Services replied:
    That’s so kind of you! Thanks SO much Lyndsay - we hope you’re very happy in your new home!

    I moved from a first floor flat over a pub and because of the layout and a tight space at the bottom of the stairs, it was never going to be an easy move, plus there was time constraints due to pub opening times but the guys made an early start and cracked on with it , I couldn’t have asked for more, all three were polite and took it in there stride , a big thank you guys, I would definitely recommend you to anyone.
