Reviews

  • Very pleased with the service we received from all the staff at Comprehensive removals, From start to finish the whole team were very polite & professional! The office staff were fantastic and really helped us with our booking which was not confirmed until the day before the move due to delays in the exchange! On the day the Removals Team arrived promptly and handled all of our stuff/furniture with care, everything was moved into our new home without any issues. I did take their names but have since forgotten, but they were all fantastic and certainly made the stress of moving much easier! Would certainly use them again and highly recommend!

  • Our removal day from our home of 36 went extremely smoothly and efficiently due to the herculean efforts of Barry, Michael and Scott from Comprehensive Removals. They remained cheerful, friendly and willing throughout the whole day. I cannot believe the weight of some of the items they moved for us - especially some of the planters from the garden. Thank you guys, we really appreciated your friendly but professional approach. Would highly recommend this team!

    They were excellent. We called on short notice and they showed up an hour later and ready to go. The team were really polite and friendly, and worked fast and carefully. Even brought mattress covers. Price was good value too. Impressed.

  • Symren Gharial 1 year ago

    Jack and Barry helped move us from London to Manchester. They were absolutely brilliant. Beyond anything I could have hoped for. They were extremely punctual arriving to pack up the flat in London. They did this with incredible speed and efficiency. They brought everything up North and carried everything into our new house with lots of care and attention. They were really friendly, really quick and incredibly good at their job. They made moving completely stress free! I would use them again 100% and would definitely recommend them to anyone else moving. The best.

  • After being let down by another company at the last minute on our moving day (Mon 21st Nov), Comprehensive Removals literally saved the day. Within an hour of calling them in a panic, there was an 18 tonne lorry and four very efficient, professional and friendly men ready to help us move. When we arrived at our new house more staff had arrived to help us unload. Each box was quickly moved to the room labelled on each box and since it was raining quite heavily they put together an indoor and outdoor team to save any damage to the flooring inside. I cannot recommend this company and their willing staff highly enough.

  • Sara Rumble 1 year ago

    What a fantastic and professional company! Oliver helped a very distressed me at last minute and sent two fantastic removal men the next day - Matt and Wayne. They were efficient, professional and very helpful. Constantly reminding me, everything will be fine. I would highly recommend this company if you are moving. Well done guys 10/10!

  • Barry & Dean from comprehensive removals were absolutely amazing! They arrived before the start time and nothing was too much trouble for them. They were fast and very easy going. It made the whole move stress free. The team in the office were also great in always doing the best they can for you and answering all our concerns. The quote was very cheap compared to other removal companies. Highly recommend. Thank you to the whole team of Comprehensive Removals. We look forward in using your services again in the future.

  • JOHN HORLEY 1 year ago

    Comprehensive moved us from Romford to Basildon last week. Bill and his team were absolutely brilliant. They were great guys, very personable, very helpful and went the extra mile to overcome all obstacles put in their way. Thank you Bill and your team for a first class service

  • Chris Brunning 1 year ago

    We moved with Comprehensive removals on the 28th July and we were absolutely delighted with them from start to finish. They were professional, courteous and made us feel completely comfortable at all times with nothing feeling like too much effort. Reece and Terry packed us up completely the day before the move and then Reece and Little Bill were brilliant on moving day. I couldn't recommend this company highly enough.

  • Carly Manders 1 year ago

    We moved on Saturday 23/7/22 and used comprehensive removals after getting several quotes from other companies, the man that came to give us a quote was prompt, clean, professional and helpful we had the quote sent to us on the same day and it was on average £800 cheaper than some other companies. From start to finish the service was impeccable, they even came the day before we moved to get a head start on packing at no extra cost, all the removal staff were friendly, helpful and went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly for us. We are a large family and moved smoothly with their help. The four men that moved us on the day were Lee, Matt , Tony and Terry, they were an amazing team and deserve a special mention. I highly recommend this company for a professional friendly good value for money service. Thank you

  • Rob Wood 2 years ago

    These guys are nothing short of amazing and we can't thank them enough. Our removal company pulled out at 9am on our moving day and these guys managed to fit us in as an emergency in the afternoon. They arrived exactly on time at 3pm and managed to get everything loaded and to the new house insanely quickly. It was less than 3 hours from arrival to everything being completely offloaded at the new place. The whole team were great from reception initially handling our call to the moving team as well. They were all incredibly helpful and understanding which was a massive help given how stressful the situation was. Michael, Jack and Reece were brilliant. They must have been shattered given they had already done another job but they came in at just the right time. Super positive, professional, and friendly guys. Would 100% recommend

    Couldn’t have asked for a better removals team today, thanks so much to Bill & Jon! Will be recommending you both to all my friends and family if they ever need any removals & I’ll make sure they ask for you two boys along with comprehensive removals. Highly recommend, Made a very stressful process completely stress free. Thanks so much to both of you!

    Great team and very professional. Efficient work and packed stuff of a two-bedroom house by early afternoon. I highly recommend Comprehensive Removals.

  • bradley williams 2 years ago

    from the initial contact made after my enquiry everyone has been so professional. I had to rearrange the date and didn't then have an exact idea of when the move could be carried out. We only had a small move but we felt valued and looked after. The team carried out the move on the day of Storm Eunice, they came early to get ahead. Overall they were brilliant, thank you so much all the team at Comprehensive. Well done.

  • A brilliant company and a lovely team…

    A brilliant company and a lovely team of men. My moved was unfortunately scheduled for the day of Storm Eunice and I worried if I would be able to move out due to the weather conditions. The team were great. Completing regular risk assessments they loaded up my home contents efficiently and quickly. They stored my stuff overnight without charge for storage as I was moving 60 miles away and the risk was too great to drive. Delivery was prompt the next morning. The men were super friendly and nothing was too much for them. They even moved a huge concrete bird bath that I had bought that was in my car to the garden. Everything was in superb condition with no breakages. Thank you for making a very stressful time a bit easier.

    Professional, Experienced, and Stress Free!

    I arranged for the Company to move my 91yr old Mother, who has dementia, earlier this week. Unfortunately, due to my mum's condition, nothing was packed, or ready. However, the removal men (John, Scott, and Terry) went out of there way to clear the contents of the furniture, leaving them in very neat piles. They helped my mum, who has been house bound for 2 yrs, get into my car, and get out at of the car when we arrived at her new accommodation. They were patient, very understanding, professional, and everything went so smoothly. The Company obviously knows what they are doing, furniture was secured appropriately in the van, items that needed to be taken apart, were done so and put together again at the new accommodation. The cost of the removal was extremely reasonable, and I would use this Company again.

    Moving made easy!

    Great service from all the team at Comprehensive.Very professional service from Reece, Terry, Barry and Tony and everything was moved without any issues and faster than we could have expected. We would not hesitate to recommend them and they made fun out of what could have been a very stressful experience.

  • Brilliant company and really lovely lads. We moved from Essex to Suffolk and Jack, Darren and Dean were excellent. Turned up promptly and just got on with the job. Prior to arrival we received a call to let us know they were on their way. Such a relief to have guys that knew what they were doing. They were so good my daughter booked them for her move too just 2 weeks later. We have one more move to go! Would highly recommend.

    After using Comprehensive Removals for my house move I would happily say I wouldn’t look no further.

Thank you so much to all the team, I would 100% recommend to anyone!

    Excellent Service!

    We used Comprehensive Removals for our move recently in Essex and they were brilliant. The team turned up on time and were very quick at loading up all the boxes and furniture. They then unloaded to the rooms we requested at the other end with care and efficiency. We have a few pets and working around them was no problem either making our day a lot less stressful! First time we've used a removal company for a move and they were brilliant, would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them to friends and family.

    These guys have moved me a number of times over the years and they never disappoint. We had to move at pace and Jason was over next day to complete a site survey. The team worked tirelessly the following week to relocate us seamlessly. Great team, exceptionally hard working, polite and accommodating and even collected the boxes next day. Highly recommended

    Comprehensive Removals- excellent service

    12 months ago Comprehensive Removals moved me and my kids from our family home to a rental property and then 6 months later they moved some bits of furniture to our forever home. Today 10/11 all our furniture and treasures were safely moved into our Woodford Green home by the very kind Reece, Pete and Dean. The storage, removals and service are the best around. The company is 100% professional and courteous. Choose the best. Choose comprehensive removals

  • Clare Hall 2 years ago

    Fantastic service & great value

    We used Comprehensive Removals to relocate from Dagenham to the West Midlands. We received a fantastic service, and they were much better value than other quotes we received. We used their packing service and I’m so glad I did; the day before we moved the team came and packed up our entire 3 bedroom house in less than 4 hours, leaving us with enough essentials to be comfortable. The day of the move went very smoothly; the team were efficient, careful, friendly and helpful. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone. Thank you to Jack, Jon, Terry and Tony for making our move as stress-free as possible.

    I have been using the services of Comprehsive Removals for a number of years and always found them to be reliable.

  • We recently moved from East London to near Manchester, and hiring Comprehensive Removals to move us was the best decision we could have made. Every step of the process was as professional as you'd want - from scoping the job with David in the head office, through to the survey visit to firm up the quote, right through to the move itself. It was a big job, with a lot of stairs involved and some heavy items, but Bill, John and Tony worked extraordinarily hard and did a fantastic (and very careful) job! No breakages, no damage, and they were extremely polite and professional the whole way through, which was doubly impressive considering what a long day it was for them. Really nice guys too, it's clear that they really care about the quality of their work and that's exactly what we were looking for when we hired Comprehensive. They weren't the cheapest option - in fact, they were among the more expensive quotes we got - but worth every penny and we got exactly what we were paying for. All the other positive reviews are absolutely spot on! THANK YOU gents for making such a monumentally stressful experience as easy as it could be. We can't recommend Comprehensive Removals highly enough!

  • gemma dyer 2 years ago

    I can not thank Barry, Pete, Michael and Reece enough. They packed and moved my belongings so quickly, I couldn’t believe it. They were so professional and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. They made the whole process so much easier and less stressful for me. I highly recommend them and wouldn’t think twice about using them again if ever the ‘moving bug’ comes back. Thanks so much guys.

  • gemma dyer 2 years ago

    Professional, Helpful, Amazing!

    Everyone says that moving is one of the most stressful things in life…but not when you get these guys to help! They were amazing. I opted for the packing option as well and had Barry, Pete, Michael and Reece turn up on the Thursday morning. My whole house was packed and loaded with in 5 hours, they worked like machines. The next day Barry, Pete and Michael returned to do the last bits and unload at the new house. They made life so easy for me. They were clean, tidy, profession and nothing was too much trouble. Not one thing got broken and I couldn’t be more grateful. I cant recommend them highly enough. If I ever move again I wouldn’t think twice about contacting them.

  • Dan G 2 years ago

    Great experience from start to finish. We had the full packing and removal service relocating from London to Berkshire. The team Terry, George, Barry, Bill and James were fantastic. Punctual and hardworking, even moving some heavy furniture left by previous residents when asked. They also disassembled and reassembled furniture at the other end. Very pleased and would highly recommend.

  • Dominic Travers 2 years ago

    Excellent service

    I used Comprehensive Removals for a packing and removals service for a flat move from East London to Brighton back in July this year. They were brilliant and made the whole process as painless as it could possibly be. They were efficient and careful with the packing the day before, then similarly so with the actual move the 2nd day. The partially loaded truck was kept at their safe location overnight, so I didn't have to worry about parking and the safety of our stuff.Nothing was damaged or broken, and they were very professional and efficient throughout. Can't recommend them enough.I think we had Billy, Jack, and Barry, but sorry if I've mixed up the names.

    Excellent crew

    The three guys who did our removal Billy, Tony & John were superb. They were on time and worked hard to take the stress out of the move. Billy in particular was helpful and went out of his way to make things easier. They definitely deserve a bonus!We had problems due to all the items not being listed - word of warning, CR do not inspect before quoting so if you forget some items when booking it could be a problem - check the list carefully. This was resolved amicably in our case, and the support of the delivery crew was fantastic. They are a credit to the Company.

    Top marks to the dream team, the 3 Bs, Big Bill, Little Bill and Barry! They tackled tight doorways, oversized sofas and box loads of crap with not one eye roll, sigh or tssk. Went above and beyond to get us moved in and avoid us sitting on the floor on our first night in the new place. Thanks a lot guys, we will definitely be in touch when we move onto our new place ( no booking the day off!)
