Long-distance move from Farnborough, Hampshire to Yateley, Hampshire

Excellent service

We recently used Sunnyside for the second time and the service was as amazing as last time. The gentlemen who packed us up were efficient and friendly, and the additional genltmen who moved us were just as excellent. Would highly recommend them for the packing and removal service.

Long-distance move from Chard, Somerset to Basingstoke, Hampshire

Great from start to finish

We had an offer accepted on a unique property in Basingstoke in June 2021 and decided to move out of our house in Somerset in September, store our furniture and belongings and stay in temporary accommodation until our purchase completed - as it turned out, not until mid January 2022.

Our estate agent had recommended Sunnyside for removals and storage. They supported us from start to finish - the move out, 3 months storage, move in - and did what they said they would do at a reasonable price. Their office team and all of the removal staff were incredibly efficient - and a cheerful bunch too. We would certainly use them again and happily recommend them.

Long-distance move from Guildford, Surrey to Guildford, Surrey

Good but room for improvement.

The packing side of the service could have been better - eg our home office contents were muddled (rather than grouping cupboards together) and the labelling of boxes could have been a lot clearer.
The unloading of boxes, on our last day, was poor. Boxes were left outside under a tarpaulin- we had assumed these were tools/garage items that we keep in protective boxes; however the next day we realised they were more precious items, including photos (which curled as they were damp). These boxes could have been stored in the house (in our dining room had plenty of space) - but it seemed the guys chose the easier option. We also have a number of empty boxes left over - we assumed someone would be in touch to collect these as it seems wasteful to dispose/recycle them, but almost 6 weeks on no one has. The guys however were pleasant enough but we were left feeling a little disappointed. 7/10.
(Pls note -we only moved from Headley Down to Hindhead however these places weren't available in the drop down list so I selected Guildford).

Service cost: £1950

Official company response

Thank you Mr & Mrs George for your feedback. I have checked your work sheet and can see that you have signed this and wrote 'absolutely fab' as feedback and gave our staff a large tip. Obviously I have spoken to our staff regarding your review. I believe that there has been some confusion as to the delivery of your items. We would never normally leave any of our customers items outside under your own tarpaulin, I believe in this case your husband did instruct our staff to do so as your house was rammed full and you were struggling to fit all items in. Unfortunately sometimes a whole cupboard does not fill a box and items from other areas have to be put in that box to fill it up, we do this as a 1/2 filled box would collapse if another were put on top of it when being stacked into the lorry. Our men I believe went above and beyond in their service, assisting your husband with a cot that he could not get apart and even staying to listen to your daughter on the piano, so were obviously not in a rush to get off. We have not been in touch to collect your boxes as you have not called or emailed us to arrange this - even though we have sent you an email telling you to contact us when you have finished unpacking so we can organize a mutually convenient time. I am sorry you feel disappointed with your service.

Long-distance move from Surrey to Hampshire

Professional and efficient service with a smile

On 25th March Sunnyside Removals moved us from a 2 bedroom house in Surrey to a 4 bedroom house in Hampshire. The team were punctual, very knowledgeable, and friendly. Despite our best efforts we were, on the day, not particularly organised and as ready to go as we should have been. This was no issues to the 3 guys who swiftly got us on track, and worked tirelessly to get everything packed away and packed up with efficiency and care. A well drilled team and service with good humour and a smile. Communication was excellent and they listened and suggested alternatives where appropriate. Nothing was an issue to the team who assisted in dismantling challenging furniture, lifting heavy pieces with some ease, and swiftly assisted with boxes and packing materials. We could not have done it without them. An already stressful day made far easier by a thoroughly professional outfit. Hopefully we will not be moving for a long time to come, but we would use them again and recommend them to anyone!

Long-distance move from Bracknell, Berkshire to Crowthorne, Berkshire

Sunnyside Review

All our communication with Sunnyside was professional and straightforward. I got frustrated that they wouldn't take my booking until we had completed on our house, but then the date changed so I understand their reasoning!

Plenty of various size boxes and packaging were delivered a day after we confirmed.

On moving day, we had a team of four guys arrive on time who were friendly, energetic and ready to go which was lovely. It was school holidays and they got my two young children completely involved which they loved and 3 weeks on, my youngest still talks about Gary from moving day. They helped make what could have been a stressful day into a fun and exciting day.

They were very patient while we waited for the keys to the next house.

Once received, they put all the boxes in the correct rooms and rebuilt all the beds. Another two guys who had finished a local job early arrived to help finish up.

I am also very pleased to have been contacted about having the boxes collected as I would rather they are reused and it takes another job off my hands.

Sunnyside were also the best by far from a number of quotes and were one of the few companies who came to the house to provide an accurate quote. I would recommend them to anyone.

Long-distance move from Farnborough, Hampshire to Reading, Berkshire

Prompt, professional and helpful

We engaged Sunnyside for downstairs packing, then moving from Farnborough to Reading. The packer arrived promptly and packed everything (I do mean everything - there were a few things we should have kept out but that’s our fault for not setting them aside!) securely in labelled boxes. On the day, the team worked efficiently to move everything safely and securely, allowing us to clean the house for a better experience for our buyers. They arrived at the new house before we did, and unpacked everything as instructed including reassembling the bed. I was also pleased that they came and collected the boxes for reuse as that’s much more environmentally friendly - I just emailed and they were able to come the next day, even managing to give a time estimate so that we weren’t waiting around for them.

Would definitely use again and will recommend to friends and family moving in the area.

Long-distance move from Fleet, Hampshire to Whitstable, Kent

Excellent service by an very efficient team

We completed on our sale and purchase on 17th August moving from Fleet to Whitstable.

Sunnyside were superb. The team were excellent both in all the packing and very importantly in the off loading in Kent.

The completion was slightly delayed on the day but this did not seem to concern the team of 4 and everything was completed the following morning as planned.

Nothing was too much trouble and the work ethic was incredible. There had been issues leading up to exchange of contracts and completion, but the move could not have gone more smoothly thanks to the Sunnyside team.

Long-distance move from Basingstoke, Hampshire to Portsmouth, Hampshire

Excellent service, well recommended.

We selected and used this company, they provided an excellent service and were a great team to work with. Everything went smoothly from beginning to end and they supplied some boxes before the move which helped tremendously. Nothing was a problem and our stuff was well looked after and well packed. Unpacking was quick even though we were moving from a bungalow to a 3 storey house.

Service cost: £2000

Dear Mr & Mrs McCarthy

Thank you for you kind review and the photos, I remember chatting with you and checking the access for the trucks at the delivery end of your move and recognize the parking, it is always worth checking these things if in doubt, as quite rightly we had to send smaller trucks to accommodate this. You have ticked yes to dirty, stolen and damaged items, yet we are not aware of any of these things happening. The ticks don't tie in with the written words by you so we can only think that you have ticked these by mistake. I will send you a separate personal email to double check everything.

We wish you every best wish in your new home, what a great location.

The Sunnyside Team.

Long-distance move from Guildford, Surrey to Basingstoke, Hampshire

First Class Service.

After being recommended to Sunnyside from a local Facebook group and by friends we decided to let them take the strain on moving day. Never again will we move ourselves, and wonder why we did it ourself before! All the staff were friendly from the initial phone call, to the home visit rep, and the removal guys themselves, were all fantastic. Thanks to the office staff who were very patient with our often moving move date! The removal guys were still upbeat even though we had a monsoon on move in day. Also patient as there was a delay on exchange no keys till after 4pm, thank goodness I took out the extra insurance for late exchange, as another van load of men turned up to help after 4pm. Fast, efficient and friendly helpful service and I would not hesitate to use them again, if I ever move again, which I hope never happens!

Service cost: £850
