Overview


Removals and Man and Van service in Colchester.  With over 30 years in the removals industry we've learnt a thing or two about how to do this right!  We promise we'll really look after you on your moving day. 


 It's SO stressful - we know that, so we'll do everything we can to make your move go as smoothly as possible.  We'll be there on time (or maybe a little early ... we understand you might need that extra bit of last minute help!) We'll treat your possessions as though they were our own (but don't worry ... we're fully insured if anything does happen!)  


We won't rush you and we promise not to moan too much if the solicitors keep us all waiting ... on the day we're in it together - let's keep it as stress free as we can... No job too small for our man and van service - why not give us a ring - you'll be surprised at how cost effective it is to hire a man and van versus just hiring a van and having to do all the hard work yourself!

Fantastic

ALJ is fantastic; they removed the stress out of relocating and gave me peace of mind that everything will be taken care of.   Also, I thank WhatRemovals for suggesting this company to me.

Just getting around to doing this review over a year later. They definitely offer value for money. I paid half of what I paid previous movers and the service was ten times better. From the onset communication with Gill was excellent. On the day off the move the team arrived on time. They were greeted by my husband as I had to pop into work for a couple hours, by the time I returned everything was done. So I never met the guys but my husband spoke highly of them. Normally a local move takes over four hours. I would use them again.

Used them over a year ago. I found Gill very warm yet still professional. On the day of the move the team arrived on time and completed the job in record time. ALJ is also very affordable. I paid way less than I normally would for way better service. I strongly recommend using them.

One less thing to worry aout on moving day!

ALJ really couldn't have been more helpful, professional and utterly brilliant with our house move (even helping me with a dodgy bit of plumbing, to save my stress levels!). Dave arranged the schedule for the day in good time, so no flapping on the day! And they clearly cared about our belongings, a genuine pleasure to be around too. Having moved many times I would use ALJ again in a heartbeat.

Moving is probably one of the most stressful things you can do, however, this company made it easy! Not only were the two guys so friendly, nothing was too much trouble! From the moment we were given a fantastic quote we were spoken to directly and quickly to make sure we could get the move on our chosen date. Very professional service and a smile. Would highly recommend to anyone needing a removal company. Thank you so much!
