Newcastle-under-Lyme is a market town with a history dating back to the 12th century. Although close to Stoke-on-Trent, it refused all attempts to be included in the town when formed and subsequent attempts. Named, most likely, after a new castle in the 12th century and the lime trees that populated the nearby area of the Forest of Lyme during mediaeval times.

Went above & beyond
Having used the company 4 years ago, we knew they would be good, and there is nothing they could have done better. The whole experience was excellent. The crew were friendly, quick, efficient and extremely helpful in many ways. The company and crew went above and beyond what some some companies do, they moved all the difficult gardening, potted plants and large items from the garage with good humour and patience. A really good crew. I would also like to compliment the office staff for their help and patience.

Everyone we dealt with was courteous & knowledgable
Very courteous and efficient. Paul and Alan were absolutely superb and made moving day easy and fun. Tremendously hard working but fun to be with. Your company should be proud to have these guys as employees. Everyone we dealt with was courteous and knowledgable. You have a very professional company.

Worked tirelessly and with good humour
The lady I spoke to managed to fit us in for an appointment at short notice and working around our limited availability. The team doing the removals did not seem to have full and correct information about the property we were moving to (i.e that it was over 4 floors and was on a fairly narrow lane), which appeared to cause some concerns about the size of the vehicle booked and the number of people required for the job. That said, and to their credit, the removals team didn’t make that our problem and resolved it themselves. They worked tirelessly and with good humour.

Will use again if ever needed
We are very grateful for the people and their willingness to help or resolve issues. Doug was considerate and helpful with our needs and concerns. They offered all we needed and more. If a problem was there they were willing to work with it. Will use again if ever needed. Paul, Lee, Alan and Tony all were great, efficient and very helpful with our requirements and needs. They were the BEST!!!

They made a tough day easier by being fabulous!
Excellent customer service very professional from Catherine Tuft. Following on from our telephone conversation I just wanted to put in writing our appreciation and thanks to Britannia Godwin’s Removals. The true heroes of the day and our heart felt thanks has to go to Ian and John! What a pleasure it was to have two lovely, caring, hard working chaps in and around my home we moved out from (which was very emotional for me) they cared, they were kind and understood how I was feeling, and helped us get into the new house late on in the day they were just amazing! I have never seen such two hard working individuals they didn’t stop to take a breathe! They got on with the job brilliantly, worked around my family and were great on the day! I cannot thank them enough for being just brilliant! They made a tough day easier by being fabulous!

I would definitely recommend Goodwins to other people
I can't praise John and Ian enough they were just fantastic. Our move went so smoothly and they were both so good at their job, excellent experience. I would definitely recommend Goodwins to other people. I really can't fault anything our removals just went so well and smooth. I can only say how great it all went and how experienced and friendly our removals men Ian and John were. Ian and John were excellent. Polite, professional,and very hard working. I would definitely recommend my friends and family to use the firm for removals from the experience I had moving.
