    Brian, James and Chris are definitely 1st Class when it came to time keeping, work ethics, manners and friendliness. They were very respectful of my belongings, wrapped everything with coverings and packed things away with care. Can't thank them enough.....definitely 1st class 👏

    WOW! Brian provided us with a very competitive quote. On the day, the guys arrived on time and were lovely and efficient. They were very careful and protected everything with covers and blankets. I was surprised at the packing skills on the van as everything was packed so neatly and efficiently, to make the most of the space. When unpacking they made sure to put things in the relevant places and packed our shed so well that it has accommodated far more than I ever imagined it would. If you were ever in doubt of which removals company to go for, this is the one!! Absolutely fantastic!

    In the process of selling, and left it late to organise a removal company - Brian was really flexible and made a genuine effort to help me achieve the move. I was kept informed of timings, and when they would be available. The team on the day worked quickly, and took plenty care when moving the furniture. A good value, friendly, excellent removal and would recommend

    Highly recommend 1st Class Removals. Communication with Brian was great, from start to finish. Very good quote, considering Brian and Pete had to go up 6 flights of stairs to move my mum. Brian and Pete were very efficient, professional and nothing was too much trouble, which made the move go very smoothly. 1st Class Removals are hard working, reliable, punctual and friendly removal guys. I would definitely use them again. Thanks so much Brian and Pete
