We used Matthew James in December 2007 when I was 6 months pregnant. They were fab. They took down and rebuilt 2 cabin beds in next to no time. IIRC they are based in Bexleyheath area so you may have to check. We moved from a 2 bed to a 3 bed. Cost was definitely under £1000. Hope this helps.
We used Simply Removals and they were very good. Packing service (day before) and moving on the day costs us under £600 for a 2-bed house to 4-bed house but it was only 5 miles. And that was with all the packing materials provided as well.
Bournes. Www.bournes-uts.com. I think. Sorry can't do linky on phone.
We used them a few weeks ago. Their full packing and unpacking service and they were beyond fabulous. Not a single item broken or damaged. No hassle. Ultra polite. And extremely efficient. And best of all cheaper than any other quote by more than £1500 so very good value too.
Thank you Angel and skandi! I think we will get the packing service as we are both working and don't have much time (or expertise) in packing/moving. I didn't know that they can unpack for you as well - though given my disorganization, perhaps I will have to do that myself. Thanks for the recommendations!
