Excellent service from start to finish of move. The staff took the stress out of the process . Nothing was too much... trouble for the packing or removal teams. All were exceptionally hard workers. Packing boxes were collected from the new property within 24 hours of a request being made, again everyone involved with that part of the system were brilliant. Would certainly recommend Britannia Client ID 98653 Lawrensonread more

What an invaluable service provided by Britannia - we literally could not have done this without them and whilst there... are many others that do removals, I have to comment how extremely efficient, courteous, hardworking and professional these guys were. They took care of everything and packed up loads of extra loose bits, dismantled furniture, wrapped mirrors, wrapped mattresses and moved everything without one single bit of damage. They worked like machines and unloaded everything into specific rooms at the new place. Money well spent and I would not hesitate using them again. Very polite and professional team of workers - Thank more

From start to finish the crew were amazing, always on time for a huge removal job. Polite, professional, caring and... kind. We always felt confident that the situation was under control. Six weeks later and we still haven't found anything broken. The only thing that has been a problem is getting rid of the packing boxes, the collection service doesn't work, so had to take them to the recycling more

Britannia were very good. We had a 2-day pack and move package and they turned up on time, packed everything... efficiently and got it all moved quicker than i've had in the past. Especially considering they needed to socially distance due to Covid it was especially impressive, i'd recommend them in the future. My Client ID was 97349 more

I first used Britannia in 2011, very professional and competitive then and equally so now in 2020. Exceptional... inter-personal skills of "Movers" gained from many years insight into peoples lives, are much appreciated and I note being passed on to Apprentices. Britannia at its best during stressful times with Covid on more

We used Britannia Cestrian on 1st Sept for our house move from Chester. They were very professional and efficient from... start to finish. We were visited by them under strict covid rules in order to gain an understanding of our requirements and to provide a quote and were dealt with as human beings throughout the process. Delivery of packing materials was timely and when I ran out of packing paper (I packed myself due to covid restrictions) they were on the ball sending more out. We had a provisional date which kept moving but along the way they did their best to help us. Finally moving day arrived and the removers were just outstanding. I am so glad we got the professionals in. On arrival at our new property everything was left clean and tidy and not one item was damaged. Our clothes were even hung in the wardrobe. All in all a very positive experience during a very stressful time. Thank you all very much. Huge thumbs up from us. 👍read more

The 2 men who came on Tuesday 25th worked hard and efficiently all day but still left a fair mount of packing for the... following day. On the day of the move, Wednesday 26th, completion of the sale was finalised by 11am but we couldn't vacate the premises until 1pm due to the amount still to be packed. The addition of a 3rd man did little to help and in fact the quality of packing he did was hurried and not up to standard. Overall we would recommend more

We chose Britannia as they seemed the most professional of the three removal companies that we approached. They were... clearly experienced in moving long distances across the country. They did not disappoint. The removal men could not have been more helpful or considerate. Our new house does not have the easiest of access but they coped admirably. I would thoroughly recommend them - indeed we have done do to our nephew and his wife who are moving south more

I would highly recommend Britannia Cestrian. They have assisted me with various library moves over the last few years... within in Cheshire including Storyhouse and more recently in Flintshire. They are highly organised and handle the book stock and specialist items with real care. They are always helpful and professional and nothing is ever too much trouble. The company will help you plan your move to ensure that everything runs smoothly. A top class service and real value for money!read more

I have always received great service from this company. I have used them on several occasions, both for removals and... storage. They are always polite, friendly, helpful and professional. I have moved several times and the guys have always been punctual and very careful with my belongings. The storage side of the business is also great. The price for my container was very reasonable and it was stored in a clean, dry and secure environment. Whenever I have had cause to email the office, my mails have been answered quickly and politely at all times. I wouldn't use anyone else and highly recommend them. more

My wife and I were very happy with the service provided right from the first contact with the request for a quote to... the offer to collect the boxes and packing materials after we have finally moved into our new home. Special mention needs to be made for the driver who was loading and unloading during the hottest days of the year. He was courteous, considerate and friendly at all times. He and the team coped very well with the move into our fourth floor flat - they were careful not cause any marks to the recently refurbished entrance foyer for the block of more

Used Britannia for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Very happy all round, good contact with head office when... needed, lads were very cheerful and helpful. They really struggled with a wardrobe refusing to fit around staircase. eventually they stripped it down to smaller sections to complete the move. Would definitely recommend to any more
