Short haul move from Ealing to Hemel Hempstead

Colin was extremely accommodating and communicative in the lead up to my move. His quote was reasonable, and on the day Colin was very prompt, efficient and also a lovely person to deal with. I would highly recommend using Changing Places Removals and would use them again in the future. Thank you Colin!

Long distance move from Hemel to Letchworth

Chris & Neil dealt with our move.

They turned up on time and had a positive attitude. They also had great communication with us.

They got the job done promptly and professionally. I feel they took great care of our belongings and were understanding of our situation (we had a sleeping newborn in one of the rooms)!

Prior to the move, Colin came round and dropped off packing materials which was super helpful. We also had great communication there and overall a great price.

I would definitely recommend them for any moves you have!

Expensive, Badgering and Intimidating.

I invited Mr Hosier to my home to quote for a removal service and packing service from Watford to Milton Keynes. He quoted promptly by e-mail as requested but more 1,400 more expensive than Supamoves who was my alternate company quoting for the job. Mr Hosier then asked my by text if I had received his quote, telling me he was still interested in the job which I found a little odd. When I explained that I would go with Supamoves due to the price being considerably lower for the same service, insurance, and customer reviews Mr Hosier proceeded to insinuate that I should not have invited him to quote at all, I actually feel quite intimidated by his attitude, his use of my private phone text facility to badger me and general overbearing demeanour. I urge you if you are a woman alone or looking for a no strings quote not to go to this company. Please find below text exchange between Mr Hosier and myself following the initial quote: Mr H: Did you get the quote?? Very keen still about the job? Me: I did, thank you very much for the speedy turnaround, unfortunately the other quote I had was considerably lower. I'm sorry but I will be going for the other company as they are also established, fully insured and have published positive testimonials. Once again many thanks for your interest. Mr H: I too have published testimonials but if you had made up your mind before I came round I am extremely disappointed that you let me come round and quoted Me: I'm sorry that you feel that I had made up my mind before you arrived. I had not, but as I explained the other quote I had was considerably lower, for what appears to be the same quality of service. How you thought I could have made the comparison on price before receiving your quote is beyond me. Please try for future customers to remember that this is business and petty, ill-informed comments like the one you have just made are beneath you in the professional environment. Please do not contact me again. Mr H: Tough.

Beat the Heat

Moving Places was recommended to me by a colleague, I couldn't be happier with their services.

Colin and his team worked exceptionally hard to pack and move our very cluttered home. It was all during the July heatwave yet they remained cool, calm and collected.

I used their full packing option; there wasn't a single issue with lost or broken items. The packing materials are reusable,recycled and plastic free too!

Colin communicated regularly and tthoroughly. I can see why they were recommended and I'll be doing the same!

Fantastic service - one of the best I’ve used

Really excellent service. I needed a move last minute and Colin was fantastic, arranging a whole removal service in 2 days and providing boxes and packing materials so I could pack everything up. On the day the team were efficient and highly professional at all times, navigating moving everything up a sloped garden, including a piano which they moved with absolute care despite it being very heavy. The team then packed everything into the storage unit perfectly, making sure everything was secure and protected.

I’ve moved a number of times and this company is definitely the best I have ever used - highly recommend and will be using again. Thank you very much.

Moved a short distance

Colin and his team were fantastic from start to finish. I got them to pack as well as move and everything was done efficiently and very quickly. Colin gave us a quote and stuck to it. Everything was packed carefully and nothing was damaged. Boxes were labelled and when we got to the new place boxes were put into the correct rooms. It really was seamless. Would definitely recommend. Boxes collected a week later. Thanks guys.

Great Job Done

Colin and the Team , moved the Contents of our House in Hertfordshire to a Storage Unit in Gloucester, a few days ago. It was Stress-Free and efficient. I felt at ease , as a woman alone , with the packing up , and the Boys were all easy to talk to , and very efficient . My husband met the 2 small lorries at Gloucester , and everything was packed in a meticulous way . Items near to the door , were things that my husband wanted access to . I highly recommend Colin and the Team, as they are prepared to do Long Distance . Cheshunt Hertfordshire to Gloucester is 115 miles . 2 small lorries , full to the brim £1140. Our precious Old Charm Furniture , was treated with the greatest respect.

Personal touch

Colin and his crew were friendly, patient and super helpful from the outset until the last.

Colin dropped off boxes, bubble wrap and tape gratis a week before the move.

Nothing too much trouble: one of the crew took beds, sofa and shelves apart then reassembled them on arrival.

I would ? recommend them. I moved from Edgware to Hemel Hempstead and it took most of the day and there were four of them costing £800.

Efficient service - highly recommend

Chris and the team were friendly, personable, and efficient throughout my relocation.

They did an excellent job transporting any fragile items, and the van was loaded and unloaded in excellent time.

A smooth and straightforward process from the initial booking through to unloading (which took a lot of the stress out of the move).

Would highly recommend using Changing Places when moving.
