Hi there, we are planning to move house and just wondered if any could recommend a company who can pack and remove? and also looking for a good professional cleaner.
thank you!

No recommendation but Hoults utterly trashed our possessions. God knows what roller coaster route they took but some items were smashed beyond repair. Over £3,000 damage in one van alone. They did the packing too.

I used Safe Removals twice and they were excellent. Think they cover whole London and not only. Very professional I would say.

I would recommended Safe Removals company. They were at very reasonable price, nothing got lost or broken. Very polite movers. I faund them on google and red their reviews, and never regret. www.saferemovals.co.uk

We used a company called JamVans, one of there guys came round a coupe of weeks before the move and he was really nice, we really warmed to him. The service on the pacKing day were great, all the staff seemed really nice and happy doing their job which was nice to see!

Hi! After moving from a 2 bedroom garden house to a 4 bedroom detached house, these guys I couldn't recommend highly enough. They where professional, reliable, fast and trustworthy. They did all the lifting and shifting work and when we got to my new place they put everything I wanted in the correct rooms. They even helped make beds and most of the cupboards, wardrobes, tables and so on. all that was really left for me and my husband was unpacking our personal belongings and kitchen bits and bobs. They certainly went the extra mile. www.londonremovals.co/

Just moved from 2 bed flat in Chiswick to house in Earlsfield and used 'Rutherfords of London,' local Earlsfield company. Good price, really hard working nice guys and they didn't mind tip toeing around when my 3 month old twins were having their afternoon nap. Well worth giving them a try! 10/10

Another vote for f smith and son in Croydon. We used them after a colleague recommended them and they were excellent

We has full packing and move service

and this post has reminded me to call them to collect the empty boxes in our garage

Hey all.
Looking at some posts on here - someone was quite right to suggest they look like the removal companies advertising.
I mean - why would anyone add a picture of packaging materials to a post asking about a good removal company?

Looks a bit suspect.

I did recommend Harradines removals in South London but to be sure you could always search the National Guild of removers website to see a reputable company?
Type National Guild or Removers into a search engine and it will find reputable members.

Better to be safe than sorry I guess.

Thanks. smile

I had to log in and use my facebook to do so, so don't work for the company I recommended.
I thought this forum was supposed to offer impartial advice to others?

I hope what you asked is not the case because we would seek advice from people using this forum ourselves.

Britstad001 Tue 23-Jun-15 22:51:26


Talk about looking after customers!
Very professional and knowledgeable in South London and not overly expensive.
Great removal company.

Hope all goes well.

We've used Elephant Removals several times for our house removals and as always had a wonderful experience with this relocation specialists. We would indeed recommend them to anyone looking to move home.

never used a professional cleaning service (assume that's an end of tenancy thing), maybe try Googling 'professional cleaning london' or something . But can definitely recommend a moving company called South West London Removals or SW Removals. Have only moved house three times before but will definitely use SW from now on after the last experience, completely not what I expect from typical delivery men. Very careful with every box I had and so polite and professional. Defo worth a look:

Does anyone else suspect that some of the posts on this page are made by people who actually work for or own the companies in question and are just advertising them?

I need a removal firm myself but I'm reluctant to trust some of these recommendations.

Removals Balham is a local company specifically for SW, but they also work for all of London. I'd always recommend a local company, because they're more affordable. These ones in particular, I tried this year and they did a decent job. www.removalsbalham.co.uk
