Hughes recently moved us from York to Nottinghamshire. We did the packing ourselves beforehand. The van was loaded on the first day and the team travelled down and unloaded in our new house on the second day. From getting the quote and organising the date, the office staff were friendly and obliging. The team that moved us were very respectful and really did their best to make a difficult move as easy and caring as possible. Absolutely nothing was damaged and they dealt with everything calmly and smoothly. What a great team! We are so grateful and have no hesitation in recommending them.

Cannot thank Hughes's enough for helping me with a last minute move back in January 2019. Incredibly friendly, great communications and made me feel like they actually cared about my move. I had been tremendously let down by David Dale at Christmas and Hughes's were superb. It made my move a breeze and I am very grateful for helping me out of a tricky situation over the Christmas holidays. Highly recommend!! A+

Just had my house contents delivered out of storage. The team arrived on time and put everything exactly where I wanted. They took great care - not so much as a scratch anywhere. Everything was in perfect condition after six months in storage. Couldn't ask for more really.

Outstanding service, booked at short notice

Hughes Removals were very efficient and helpful in moving us. We were the penultimate house in a long chain and did not receive the keys to our new house until very late in the afternoon, by which time
my wife and I were tearing our hair out. This did not faze the removal team - who were very understanding . They moved us in in double quick time and still great care not to damage the house or furniture.

Items damaged and lost

I rang repeatedly trying to speak to the owner after a bad experience. When I eventually got through, he screamed at me and told me if I had a problem I should sue him. A number of items were missing, never to be found, and my valuable sculptures (which had been thrown unwrapped in with kitchen utensils) were chipped and damaged. Would not recommend under any circumstances.
