Moved from Walsall (United Kingdom) to Wolverhamtpn (United Kingdom).


Recommendation

We required a piano taking from a first story flat and moving upstairs to a new house. 4 people turned up for the removal and they were very professional, they all knew exactly what they were doing and they took all the necessary steps to ensure it was moved correctly but also safely. The piano was also wrapped in blankets to ensure no damage to the piano or the surroundings.

The removal was very quick and only took a couple of hours, which also included a 20 minute drive to our new house.

I would recommend Burke Bros to anyone who requires a removal service.

Pros and cons
professional
speedy

Packing was provided and the Packer seemed to be efficient and speedy. The actual move on the following day not so. The men couldn’t get 3 small solid wooden wardrobes downstairs though they had previously been taken up by my 87 yr old father. Had to live out of boxes for clothes for 3 weeks because of this until I could receive inferior replacements which cost me over £1000 a cost that I had not accounted for. When boxes were eventually emptied it was discovered that 3 bottles of Moët champagne was missing. Also found missing were 2 small oil paintings. Luckily I was able to contact the person who had purchased my house and they were eventually found. Although I haven’t received them yet I have been told that they will be returned to me at the weekend. Moving home is stressful anyway but the loss of 3 good wardrobes in excellent condition plus’s the realisation that Champaign and paintings were also missing contributed to further stress, anxiety and extreme disappointment

Pros and cons
I would have recomm. ended but it has cost me a lot of money for inferior replacements

Response of

We are sorry to hear that the removal service you received did not meet your expectations.
The removal crew employed on the move, collectively, have in excess of 50 years’ experience of conducting house moves. The crew did endeavour to manoeuvre the wardrobes through the confines of the stairway and doorway; utilising a number of different techniques to best manoeuvre the wardrobes. Unfortunately, the wardrobes would not to fit through the space in a fully constructed form. As you are aware, the wardrobes are glued and we can not dismantle glued wardrobes as part of our moving service due to the likelihood of splintering and damage being caused to the furniture.
We are pleased that you are now in receipt of the missing items.
Mr Burke will be writing to you under separate cover and including an insurance claim form in respect of the missing champagne bottles, if you are still unable to locate the bottles in the interim.

We used Burke Bros last week for a local move.

Recommendation

The company sent a Sales person to look at my belongings and he emailed a Quote, he explained that their Removal men were professionals and could remove the door or it's handles if necessary to get the large 3 seater settee out. The 3 Removal men were very polite and nothing was too much trouble for them. They enjoyed their job, and worked well together they all had a good rapport, and I felt in they were very professional and quick.

Pros and cons
They chopped up the back of the large 3 seater settee to remove it from the old premises and then they disposed if it at their site.
They gave a detailed and comprehensive Quote, which was easily best value compared to other quotes I was given

Recommendation

[names removed by Sirelo] were amazing from start to finish! They were early to the old house, friendly and efficient and took great care of our belongings. The move was really smooth from start to finish, they were really capable, even with a narrow, tricky first house. The other end was just as great, they placed everything where we asked and weren’t impatient when I changed my mind! We shared lots of laughs and I felt really confident in their ability. Thanks so much [names removed by Sirelo], you made the day completely stressless! :-)

Burke Bros. provided a fantastic service with my move to Ilkeston from Newcastle-under-Lyme.

The firm I had originally contracted were unable to do this date and, at very short notice, [name removed by Sirelo] managed to arrange a removal team for me. He was very efficient and professional throughout.

On the day the removal team [names removed by Sirelo] were exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble and their good humour meant that what could have been quite a stressful day ended up being good fun!

I have already recommended Burke Bros. to friends who are moving in the next few months.

Pros and cons

Recommendation

A very professional set-up. Pleasant, polite & helpful staff both beforehand and on the day of the move. All went smoothly & efficiently.

Moved from Wolverhampton (United Kingdom) to Wolverhampton (United Kingdom).


Recommendation

From the first visit for a quotation to the end of our move we were put at ease and were given a lot of advice and tips. They were very professional and due to the complications of our move we were looked after and felt our stress levels were minimised. The staff who moved us were polite and couldn't do enough for us. They may have been a little more on the expensive side but we felt our possessions were more important than the difference in the money.

Pros and cons
Professional
Respectful
Moved from Bishops Wood (United Kingdom) to Holyhead (United Kingdom).


Recommendation

Turned up on time, the guys were really friendly and professional. They took the beds down and put them back up the other end which was very important to us as we have 2 small children. The price was really good too and loved that they had wardrobe boxes to put our clothes in on hangers which made it really easy unloading the other end and ment we didn't have to fold everything and risk getting it creased.

Pros and cons
Friendly staff who are efficient
Very good value for money
Moved from New Invention (United Kingdom) to New Invention (United Kingdom).


Recommendation

All went according to plan, arrived on time. Team of two men were very helpful & courteous, handled our possessions with care.

Moved from Wolverhampton (United Kingdom) to Newport Shropshire (United Kingdom).


Recommendation

The removal men arrived on time, they were extremely professional, friendly, respectful and courteous and took great care in moving the items that had a very high sentimental value to me. They went the extra mile by overcoming a problem of a sofa not fitting through a standard door. Nothing was too much trouble. They drove very carefully. They stacked the furniture in my garage for me as it was being stored and were very careful using their experience in how to place each item so that nothing was damaged. I cannot praise them highly enough. I would definately reccomend them and use them again.

Moved from Tipton (United Kingdom) to Coseley (United Kingdom).


Recommendation

Extremely efficient, friendly and helpful staff and went beyond what we were expecting and went out of their way to help us when we needed our furniture to be delivered from storage on a specific day.

Response of

We based the move on the volume that was pre-booked. Sometimes the volume does exceed the pre-booked space. We can only work with the list that was supplied to us and from an average dimensions guide.
We apologise if your expectations have not been met. The feedback is appreciated and will help us to keep improving.

Recommendation

I have nothing but praise for Burke Bros. We were let down by a previous company, so we contacted Burke Bros, with only one weeks notice and they moved us out without a problem at there busiest time. The removal men laid mats through the house and didn't put a mark on any walls. Being a new house the stairs are tight but everything came out without a problem. Special thanks to Jackie in the office, who answered all questions and put us at ease, she made moving alot less stressful. Nothing was to much trouble and felt you were being well looked after. We would recommend Burke Bros to anyone and we've already recommended to friends that are moving out soon.

Pros and cons
Professional, efficient and a feeling that they care.
Removal men are clean, tidy and careful
Moved from Stroud (United Kingdom) to Lingayen (Philippines).


Recommendation

From start to finish communication was excellent, no question was too much and answers and problem solving always came very quickly. The company appeared to care about my family and paid attention to detail. Everyone I came into contact with from end to end was professional and helpful.
The packing team were fantastic, organised, so fast and ever professional. If it mattered to me it mattered to them. I wouldn't use any other company in the future.

Pros and cons
great communication
expert packing
Moved from Staffordshire (United Kingdom) to Coquitlam (Canada).


Recommendation

Absolute superb customer service from start to finish. A very personable and professional company. They really care about their customers and are there to answer any queries in a heartbeat along with superb advice. They talk you through every step of the process so making your relocation as stress free as possible. I have used their services twice and wouldn't hesitate to go sign up with them again. Burke Bros all the way!! You won't be disappointed.

Pros and cons
Personable, professional, reliable, trustworthy
That you don't get to thank everyone at Burke Bros personally!
