We were impressed by how hard Rob and Tim worked.
The hours were very long, but they were careful unloading the heavy furniture on out new polished wooden floors.
Thanks very much again to them.

Thanks for the move. The guys who loaded and unloaded everything were great. With the stairs in our new house I am sure it wasn't a mountain of fun for them, but they quickly and efficiently (and happily!) put everything into it. I don't think I could ever say moving is pleasant, but they were great to deal with and that really helped. So thanks.

testimonials

Greater Northern office staff and the moving crew were fabulous!
The whole experience was painless and wonderful value for money (given that it was a difficult move regarding access). I have to give special thanks to the truck crew who maintained an impressive efficiency and good humour over two days of an arduous move.

testimonials

Today went so smoothly because of the wonderful work put in by Rowan, Nigel and Rob. It was stress free and so professionally executed, as well as being lots of fun with the guys cracking jokes. They made us feel reassured that our goods were in capable hands. A great reflection of the great service we've received from your Company.

I cannot speak more highly of your company and the two chaps that did my pick today.
I have experienced a good few moves over the years and I can honestly say these two men this morning excel.  Both professional and friendly and so caring in the manner in which they handled my belongings.
Thank you to you and your company, you have all made this move a pleasant experience.
