Mansfield

"My partner and I recently used House & Carriage to move house. The experience couldn't have been better and they helped make it as smooth a process as possible. Communication with the main office was always prompt and the team who helped us actually move were amazing. Danny, Steve and Luke were friendly, professional, considerate and yet very quick.

They were really careful to protect items and flooring and when it was unclear where certain items should go they would come and ask. When it came to moving things they didn't hang about and it was impressive to watch!

Thanks so much, we would definitely use you again!"

Corin M

"Adam is fantastic. Calm and helpful and clearly in control of timings and the team. Steve and Harry were super hard working and loved Morgan and the checks he did to make sure things were in the right place. They all were fab with my stress levels, the dog and the challenges of parking. They made a really difficult couple of days a real breeze and I can’t thank them enough!"

Ecob

"All the way through the process of moving home, the team at House and Carriage have been first rate. From the first enquiry, the quotation visit, the administration and aftercare and the move itself, the service has been exceptional and have made a difficult process as stress free as possible. A recommendation without any reservations at all."

Shone

February 2022

"They were utterly, utterly brilliant and went way beyond anything anyone could have normally expected to include much moving of beds etc after very poor initial instruction from Sarah and / or me.

And small detail such as finding a tool kit and then assembling our kitchen table….whilst they were waiting to head home.

Really truly lovely, kind and wonderful Gentlemen."

Tubbs

February 2022

"All members of the team worked very well. I thought Joe was great in leading / directing them and also his energy in keeping everyone going. But all of them were very helpful and made the whole experience as easy as possible for me. They all worked very hard indeed."

Frankum

January 2022

"I can’t pick out any 1 in particular they were all amazing and worked so hard the whole day"

Parsons

January 2022

"The move team, Lee, Alex and Adam, were so wonderfully efficient, communicative and observant. In one instance I realised I'd forgotten to tape down a small, very loose part to my sewing machine, which I feared might be lost in transit. When it reached the other side a day later, the team remembered, and amid all the work of unpacking the van they kept an eye out for it, and found the part which had indeed come loose. Lee came through the door with the sewing machine under one arm and the little part – a 2x3 inch metal plate – in his hand! Exceptional attention to detail, I'd say!"

Anderson

January 2022

"All three of the guys were very good at their job.
They were caring, courteous and respectful of belongings and more importantly, feelings, as in my case I had lived in my home for 30 years and found packing up to say goodbye to those many years of living there a huge wrench,
it is good to know my belongings are in safe hands."

Hannington

January 2022

"All were brilliant! I was particularly impressed by Joe's organisation and his tenacity in planning to ensure everything fitted into the 2 vans; in the end there was room to spare! The team member who packed our wardrobe boxes took particular care with every individual item."

Fowler

January 2022

"The whole team was excellent and worked incredibly hard. However, I particularly remember Joe and Danny as working as a team to solve the practical problems of packing up and unpacking and of “going the extra mile” which was lovely."

McCallum

January 2022

"Everyone in the office responded quickly to any request. Both by email and phone. Josh and Morgan moved us on the day and were a delight. Considering there was a ridiculously muddy road outside, there was no mess inside at all. Polite, careful and moved things as we asked."

Gill

December 2021

"We can't think of a single thing which could possibly improve such a wonderful service! They were a real team and gave us exceptional service throughout. We really missed them when they finally left! A huge thank you to them all."

From the moment your flier arrived once the Walnut Cottage went on the market to the moment the guys left Shaley House the experience has been so professional and stress free. The lads were hard working, polite, humorous and punctual. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anybody seeking a removal company. You have truly lived up to your strapline of ‘Moving done differently’."

"From the very first point of contact, House and Carriage were professional, helpful, knowledgeable, and a thoroughly nice bunch of people. Management and office staff were cheerfully polite and efficient. The removals team were great, able to deal with challenges with great resourcefulness, and were clearly very experienced. We were inexperienced about moving and apprehensive about this move - we could not imagine any way in which you could improve - thank you!"

Reavley

April 2021

"From start to finish my interaction with everyone was faultless and the service provided was superb. From the initial call and making the appointment with Dee, to Tom carrying out and providing the quote, Leigh for looking after us during the move and Josh & Jacob carrying out the move"

It was so easy to arrange a quote and organise a moving date, doing their best to fit me in when it was convenient. It was a very difficult and personal house move for us and they were extremely understanding with this.
On the day of the move Alex, Steve and Arthur went above and beyond to do everything they could to make sure the move went smoothly. They were very considerate and moved everything wonderfully, making a stressful situation so easy and relaxed
My whole experience with House and Carriage has been faultless and I cannot recommend them enough."

Needless to say we are so impressed with the whole company especially the help with bits and pieces going to charity, saving us at least 3 trips ourselves.

As soon as we find a house we will be back in touch for the reverse journey."

Their packing was excellent and ensured everything was safely transferred. They all one out of their way to be friendly and thoughtful, whilst remaining efficient and responsive. An excellent team who complemented each other very well. The office ensured that a mountain of boxes were collected quickly after the move, which was also important and helpful."
