“The lads were excellent: Jordan worked tirelessly; Paul, despite suffering from a heavy cold, soldiered on, propped by Lemsips and Ash was simply fantastic – very professional and clearly an expert at his job. They were all cheerful and courteous throughout our two day move, and did not flinch when they arrived at our new house and saw all the steps and stairs they had to contend with. Working with these lads turned what could have been a stressful experience into a very smooth move; I cannot recommend them enough. Thank you very much!

“Alban moves were excellent. The whole team from the initial quote, the people in the office who answered every question and even interrupted their lunch breaks to take calls, to the removal team were all exceptional. Everyone went out of their way to make sure no detail was left out. They made sure our move happened smoothly and efficiently. The team were brilliant. Thank you Alban Moves, for all your dedication. We will definitely be using you again.”

“Having never used a Removals company before, I was a little apprehensive as to how things would go. I certainly didn’t need to worry, as the team were brilliant in every respect from my initial contact requesting a survey, to the final signing off of the job at the end of the day. The whole process was handled in a very professional, effective, timely and friendly manner. If you are looking for a removals company who meet all of these criterion, then look no further than Alban Moves, simply superior.”
“I was extremely impressed with your team that moved us on the day. Both their helpfulness and efficiency are to be commended. When we asked them to move an item around there were no complaints just a happy, helpful face. Also at the end of the move they asked if we were happy with where everything was and if not they would be more than happy to move things to where we wanted. I commend you on an excellent moving experience. You made a difficult & hard job look effortless and like you wanted to help us to move, engaging with us on where things should go. What a brilliant team. Well done!”

On the day of the move, which was handled very well indeed by Richard, Martin and Danny, nothing was too much or too little to ask and they were extremely hard working, courteous and professional.
