How are our appointments carried out

In the current times you might prefer that we don't visit your house in person to carry out a survey. This is fully understandable and we can just as easily undertake the survey by video call, using whatever method you're comfortable with, usually FaceTime or WhatsApp.

The guys were so friendly and professional

I just wanted to send an email to say thank you so much for the help in moving, the guys were absolutely fantastic and we were all packed, moved and unpacked within 2 and a half hours!

The guys were so friendly and professional and really did help out a hopeless female!

I have recommended you guys to my friend who is moving so she will be calling you shortly.

Once again many thanks for everything!

Is there anything else you would like to tell us about your move?
Moving my stuff into storage without knowing how long it would take for the house sale to go through, my experience with Britannia Goodwins made a tough situation so much easier and better. They packed up my house quickly and efficiently, with a great attitude. Then when it was delivered it was so fast, and they remembered me even though it had been 4 months. They were able to transport tricky items up and down stairs, and didn't break or lose anything. I hope I don't have to move again soon, but if I do I know who I am calling to help.
