    Don't have any doubts choosing Illy James. Phenomenal is the word best to describe their service. They turned up early, packed everything with care, dismantled beds, wardrobes ect, and worked tirelessly. On delivery exactly the same. The guys were brilliant but also really friendly and couldnt do enough.

    Ms Illy James of Illy James replied:
    Dear Stephen,Thank you so much for the kind and great comments. Much appreciated. Enjoy your new home! Best wishes from me and team

    The guys that turned up to help me move were fantastic! Polite, respectful and incredibly well organised.

    When we moved into our new house one of the men spent at least 30mins finding the water outlet to the washing machine, which he plumbed in. Amazing service as this would have been an additional cost in calling out a plumber.

    I would recommend Illy and her company to all friends and colleagues!!

    Ms Illy James of Illy James replied:
    Thank you so much, Simon. Enjoy your new home.

    Illy James expertly moved everything from the really heavy upright piano down to 2 lonely eggs in a carton with ease. Their rate was very competitively priced against other companies. No hidden charges, everything was discussed upfront. Very pleased, would highly recommend to others.

    I was very happy with our move. Everything went very smoothly and the team were very professional and reliable. I would definitely use them again.
    I like the fact that there are no hidden costs. The price they quote, is the price at the end of the move. They charge a very reasonable rate.

    Ms. Illy James of Illy James replied:
    Dear Alice, it was a pleasure conducting your move. Enjoy your new home. All the best from me and team

    I literally cannot fault Illy and her team. From the moment I spoke to Illy concerning a quote until the day I moved, she was always available to answer my questions. On the day her team were extremely punctual and hard working, what seemed a daunting stressful day, that moving often is, they made me feel at ease and everything went without a hitch. I cannot thank them enough. I also used Illy’s cleaning service for my End of Tenancy Clean. Her cleaning team worked tirelessly through to the evening to ensure the house was spotless, in fact by the time they had finished it looked brand new, a big thank you again for this. I would 100% recommend Illy James removal company to anyone who wants a professional and stress free move day. Thanks again for everything

    Ms Illy James of Illy James replied:
    Thank you so much, Jackie! It has been a pleasure

    I can highly recommend Illy James.

    Illy was personally a pleasure to deal with, and the moving team was fantastic.

    The men came 7:30am, packed up our entire flat in 3 hours. The entire move was complete before 1pm, which included assembly of all furniture. They were very professional and careful with all fragile items. I was very impressed with how smooth the entire process was.

    Thank you Illy!

    Kind regards,
    Nicolai

    Illy came to do the survey and was very efficient and friendly which inspired confidence from the start. She was flexible on dates and pricing and provided everything needed to pack.

    Her team arrived on time and blitzed the house so quickly I was amazed! Everything arrived at the other end, positioned, unpacked, rebuilt etc etc just as quickly. The guys were really friendly and professional and happy to help with a few things that weren’t really their responsibility.

    Fantastic service, was really pleased and would strongly recommend.

    If moving is not stressful enough they certainly DID NOT help with the terrible communication with a number on a number of matters.
    1.They turned up over 1 hour late with little to no communication I called the boss lady who had done my initial quote. I asked for the removal mens phone number to find out what was happening. Her response "I can't call them darling they are driving!" Baring in mind we had 2 vans and 4 men on the job! Eventually I got a call from one of the men informing me they were 10 minutes away. This line continued throughout the following hour. My thoughts at this point were that I had actually been scammed as it felt like I was being seriously fobbed off! The attitude of all the staff over the phone during this time was unbelievable! The second call I made to the boss with my apparent lack of reassurance resulted in her actually hanging up the phone on me. I did not curse but I was clearly stressed with the situation with my words whilst trying to remain calm. When they did eventually arrive one man left after a short time due to being unwell also left us with just 1 English speaking. They did not wrap certain items up as discussed at quote.

    Dear Jane,Wishing you the very best in your new home!
