Excellent removal company, highly recommended.

We used Carl and Stewart twice to move all our worldly goods. Once into storage in October 2021 and then finally at the end of January 2022 out of storage and into our new home. Both times they were professional, highly organised and took great care with our belongings. They certainly know how to pack a Luton van! Excellent, we’d highly recommend them. Thanks Carl.

Best Removal Experience Ever

We’re moving to Ireland from Bradford and called Carl at short notice to move the bulk of our belongings across the Irish Sea to storage. Carl came within a couple of days and assessed the volume and weight of our belongings, then gave us a quote which was several hundred pounds cheaper than the next best.

On the day, Carl and Stuart loaded the vehicle with no fuss or stress within a couple of hours. We’d imagined all sorts of issues with getting the stuff out of a very awkward property and they made it appear very straightforward. Everything was taken to Ireland and put into storage with no issues despite the stormy September weather.

A few days afterwards when we were almost ready to leave Carl returned with only a couple of days notice to clear the rest of our large furniture items. He was brilliant to deal with throughout, not only in terms of the efficiency of the service, but also as a very pleasant and straightforward person.

I can’t recommend A1 highly enough!

Carl moved my house belongings into storage in November 2012 and out again In June 2013. On both occasions he was reliable, helpful and polite, and he and his helper carried out both moves with expertise and patience. I was moving into a 2nd floor duplix apartment which was awkward and difficult but at no time did he complain, just got on with the job with a professional attitude.
