Britannia Goodwins Removals & Storage Stafford Moving Checklist
  • Book a survey so that you can decide on costs and set a moving date as quickly as possible (especially during peak times when slots fill up quickly)
  • Do you need or want everything from your garden, shed or garage? It's a great time for that long promised clear out.
  • Decide what service you require - packing china or glass, full service packing or pack yourself
  • Pick out the items that need special care and make sure that the people who are moving these items know - this is so fragile items or items that are especially valuable to you are given the proper attention
  • Throw away any unwanted items so that they don't accidently get taken with you (this happens more often than you think)
  • Clear out your loft so that no goods that you want to take get left behind
  • Make arrangements for children and pets on the day of your move so you don't get distracted on moving day by looking after them (and they don't get stressed) - distractions may mean things are left behind by accident

Fantastic.  Tyler and the team (and there were many over the three days) were positive and professional throughout.  They dealt with a nervous buyer with great empathy and always tried to put me at ease.  They were enthusiastic, positive and professional.  Thank you so much.

Just taking a break from unpacking & taking the opportunity to say a big thank you to all of you for our move.

To you, for your perseverance with my ever changing requests.

But, big shout out to Adam, Gaz & Ade. Despite being delayed by an accident on the motorway they were super efficient at getting everything packed up from our old house. And then the fiasco when they arrived at our new property. They never once complained, made every effort to make the best of the situation and all with a smile on their faces. We helped out as much as we could to ensure that they would be able to get away home this morning. We couldn't have wished for a better team. We've said our thanks to them as well and will be leaving a google review.

Again, many thanks

Both when they packed up my stuff and when they delivered it 4 months later the teams were friendly and helpful. It made a stressful experience so much better.

A bit better integration on the online system for paying, but honestly the whole process was easy

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.
