Company info

Alexander James Removals is a family run company based in Waterlooville Hampshire. 

We offer a professional removal service to domestic and commercial customers. We undertake approximately 30 removals per month throughout the UK & Europe. We can provide a full packing service and have our own storage facility should your sale and purchase not tie up.

Ahead of the move we always undertake a survey at your convenience to ensure that we get to meet the people that we could be potentially moving. This gives you a chance to ask any questions or discuss any concerns that you may have. You also need to make sure that you feel comfortable with the people moving you. The other reason for undertaking a survey is to ensure we supply the correct vehicle and the correct number of people for your requirement.

All of our staff are employed and are full time removal men, and we have goods in transit insurance of £10,000 as standard, and can quote for additional cover if required

We are approved by Hampshire county council Trading standards, 'Buy it with confidence' scheme

It's our job to make your relocation as simple and straightforward as possible and we take our responsibilities very seriously indeed. Why not contact Alexander James Removals and receive your free no obligation written quote?

Collected removals, stored them and then delivered them to a new property.

Verified Review

Everyone was friendly and helpful; from the initial quote to keeping me informed and eventually moving into my new home. Ash and Luke were brilliant at moving my belongings safely into my new home with its old and quirky layout. Thank you!

House packing and removal

The whole removal team at Alexander James were polite and professional throughout the two days of packing and moving us to our new house. They set our minds at ease throughout and worked very hard to ensure a smooth operation. I highly recommend Alexander James for packing and removals.

House move from Southampton to Winchester

Verified Review

John and Ash were superb and extremely good at their job. They worked tirelessly and did an excellent job. They made sure that everything we asked for was moved and was very careful moving stuff upstairs through the narrow stairway and didn't damage any walls! They disassembled and reassembled the king bed and day bed without any issues. Cannot recommend this company enough and John and Ash as well. Really glad we went with these guys.
