Used FA Removals to clear my house into storage and they were excellent...polite, efficient, thorough, well insured and well priced vs the competition. Excellent, thanks
Very efficient on the day, and the packing service was well worth the extra expense. The initial assessment visit was far more thorough than by other companies and gave me confidence that I was dealing with an experienced removal company.
Very efficient from giving a quote to the day of moving and would definitely recommend. Very competitive price too.
FA Removals moved us from London to Somerset. From packing up the house on Thursday through to moving us on Friday - we found the staff to be highly professional and courteous, and they treated our furniture and belongings with great care. I'd highly recommend FA Removals to anyone considering using a removals service as they offer both professionalism and value for money.
We had a tough job, moving a LOT of delicate, high value items from a 1st floor flat to a 2nd floor flat. The 3 man team were excellent and worked non-stop and, most importantly for me, they paid attention to requests for handling delicate items. Everything was delivered to the new flat in the condition it was packed in - would highly recommend this service!
Great team of people from start to finish. The actual removal men worked so hard and were careful with everything. Many thanks
The removal guys came on time, treated our furniture and boxes with care and worked hard throughout the day. Very happy all round.
Move was quick and stress-free. Very pleased
FARemovals was very professional and organised with the move. Will use them again on the next move.
Rain was forecast for the morning, so the team arrived earlier than booked and managed to pack everything into the vans ahead of the rain starting. It had started raining by the time it came to unloading at the other side and they put down rain blankets in the hallway to save wet footprints.
Great service, very polite team, nothing damaged.
Would highly recommend.
First time using a removal service and I wasn't sure what exactly to expect. FA Removals team were professional from start to finish; making my move easy and stress free. They worked quickly, but with care so my belongings arrived in one piece. Only one item was left in truck, which I missed on my own inspection, and they had returned to London before I realised and they kindly dropped it off for me with a friend with no fuss made.
Great movers. Came and packed up the day before. On the move day, the guys worked really hard, had a good work ethic and were very respectful of the new house making sure to move things carefully. A few minor scuffs and scrapes on furniture that could be wiped down and only one thing got broken, so not bad given that we had to move from a 4-storey house with lots of stuff.
FA Removals were prompt, curteous and careful
Perfect,very professional, efficient and friendly staff.
Very hard working men and with a very pleasant way.
Absolutely brilliant. I have a misaligned spine and the 2 guys helping were a god send. Arrived early, did all the lifting, nothing damaged and felt safe too. Thank you so much. If you are looking for removals PLEASE check these guys out before you go anywhere else! they’re great!
Quick, easy and friendly service, I had absolute confidence in our removers
Great service - thank you! I would recommend FA removals.
Very friendly and efficient, very happy with the service.
FA were great from start to finish. We had to change dates several times, had our moving day pushed back at the last minute - and the team were extremely accommodating.
The move itself was fast, efficient and without any kind of incident. All fragile items were in the exact condition they were removed in. Will happily use again!
FA Removals were friendly, helpful and incredibly efficient. Nothing was broken during the move, which was fast and stress free, and they were happy to dismantle and reassemble my furniture, which I was very grateful for.
FA Removals were very professional and they helped us immensely. Excellent value for money. I was very impressed. We initially contacted another company. They were very greedy and asked for more money when they turned up.
They were great from the start.
The team were great, understanding and efficient
The van was too small for moving all 3 sites into a 4th but the team were great and we did a second round.
Great people! Thanks for your service
Fantastic service. They worked so hard.
It was very efficient and professional.
Overall all very good. The moving team, Lucien, Lucasz and co were brilliant. Polite and helpful throughout and worked very hard. Would use FA removals again.
Pros: prompt, efficient, friendly, excellent and proficient at disassembling and reassembling furniture. Very good price
Cons: could have taken slightly more care with delicate and light coloured stuff, there were a few dirty marks on some cream coloured upholstery
This company were very reasonably priced and did a great job. The guys were very friendly and just got on with the job. Only comments against them were a couple of items got a small bit of damage (ie marks to furniture).
Easy to deal and no nonsense job
We hired 2 Luton vans. One turned up on time and the other was three hours late because of a breakdown. The removals guys were good, efficient and careful with the items. I had to chase the company with many phone calls to get an update on the second removals van. I managed to get some money off the final bill, but only after some negotiation.
Despite coming to view the flat ahead of time, they seemed quite annoyed by the amount that needed to be moved. That being said the move was fast and efficient, nothing was damaged and I was happy with the end result.
Service was good. The van oad though was overweight and pressure was put on us to pay the removal man extra as he claimed that he could have been (or was - he kept changing his story) stopped and fined £350. They also made a detour to collect a colleague and a large motor engine part which made them later than expected. Having said that I could not fault their removal skills, they worked hard to load and unload the truck. I intended to tip them well anyway and was unhappy with the insistance that there was a fine to be paid.
If you have a last minute move, they'll get the job done. Using non English speakers to do the move meant boxes weren't labelled accurately and at times it was difficult to direct them. They packed the day before the move. I put clothes out for me to wear the next day; they got packed before I could explain. We've struggled to locate items and found other clothes were mixed together and packed without sufficient care. They work hard and are polite but I'd stick to a reputable family run business of I had the choice.
I had arranged for 3 removal men and only two attended. The company would have expected me to pay the agreed price but I called them up and got the price reduced.
The actual guys on the day worked so hard from 09:00 to 10:00 at night by the time they left my home. I felt sorry for them i really did especially when you know what they’re being paid. They struggled with speaking English but we got by.
The problem with this company is the huge disconnect between (a) the person who comes round to do the quote for whom nothing is an issue (as he’s not going to be the person doing the job), (b) the person at the office who you liaise with and (c) the actual guys on the ground doing the job.
This is not what you need on the most stressful day of your life. Like I said the actual guys were really good but my impression of the company is really poor. It feels like their just exploiting the hard working labourers.
Good quote, pleasant chap visited to give quote. On day of move, men 3 hours late, surly individuals, did a fair job. Used the toilet without asking and left a dreadful smell in loo.
Did not bring the boxes and wrapping paper on the day as we agreed before.
We were told the night before that they couldn't make the 9am appointment, in the end the move did go ahead on time but very stressful. Movers on the day were nice but spoke little English and hadn't been briefed that there was furniture to dismantle - we had to go out and buy them tools to do the job as they had none and communication was an issue. The job overran (which we agreed to pay more for and were fine with) and one of the movers then got extremely angry later in the day, shouting and banging furniture around because they wanted to go to another job. Overall it got the job done but was a difficult experience.
Packers did not label the boxes carefully enough. They wrote Kitchen or dining room on the box but not glasses or cutlery or vases.
On arrival at the new house they did not cover the carpet with sheeting to protect the pale carpet and consequently put muddy footprints on the carpet.
The removers ran out of time and just dumped everything in the large shed when they could be bothered to walk upstairs.
They broke bedroom lamps as they were not wrapped up on the day of moving. Although I have written to the company for replacement value they have not contacted me.
I would not recommend these people.
Very unprofessional. Showed little or no respect to my personal items. Very disappointed with them.
Shocking service. Booked to arrive at 9am so that we would be out of the flat at midday. Excuse given that van needed tyre change. Arrived in the flat at 11:45. Went on 40 minute break at 13:15. Eventually left at 16:30. Workman said delay was due to no boxes being available. Final unpacking finished at 20:00. Driver rang ‘boss’ who demanded payment whilst I was on the line and workman was standing over. No doubt to avoid me holding back payment for the inevitable damages that we found. Shocking. Would not recommend. Do not be fooled by the low price if you want a stress-free day.
Andy Williams of FA Removals replied:
In response to the above review, the customer was advised similar jobs to his, under normal circumstances, require a minimum of three removal men instead of the two for a packing and removal service that is intended to be completed on the same day. The customer went against our recommendation and opted for a two-man team undertaking a full packing and removal service on the same day, with the desire to be out of the property by noon. The customer was informed that this would be very unlikely given the work that needed to be carried out. The customer insisted on a two-man team, one can only infer that the customer was trying to save money, however, it was never practical given the time limitation. FA Removals agreed to carry out the job and reminded the customer that this will not be completed by 12:00 PM. On the day of the removal, the team worked tirelessly on the removal which was acknowledged by the customer and no damages were reported on the day. FA Removals has since tried to contact the customer several times to get more information regarding the damage and have had no response to emails or phone calls.
Do NOT use this firm. The saying you get what you pay for , never truer than this.
1 of many things , did not turn up with enough Lorries , despite me booking required number. End result my wife was left sitting in our drive with furniture whilst I had to drive 70 miles to the new house whilst they tried to source another van. There suggestion , oh just leave it on the drive and our driver will do a 140 mile round trip and get it ...
Awful awful experience from beginning to end. Broken bed, broken vintage sofa, holes in ceiling. No one taking responsibility for repairs, subcontract out the work,
Here at FA Removals, we do all the hard work so you don’t have to, we know that moving house can be incredibly stressful and we know our customers have a strong attachment to their belongings so we manage each move with the utmost care and attention every step of the way, from start until finish.
