Recommendation

I used Burke Brothers to move from the Wolverhampton to Milford Haven in Pembrokeshire (West Wales) on 21st / 22nd July. The two lads who did the removing, etc were [names removed by Sirelo].
I have nothing but absolute praise for the way in which the whole move (from first contact with [name removed by Sirelo] in the office to final delivery) was been handled. Nothing but the highest professionalism from everyone involved. I was at the time very stressed about the whole operation. Thanks to Burke Brothers expertise it was made to be very stress free.
It was not an easy move as the whole of my goods were not packed correctly, labelled or in any coherent order for moving. [names removed by Sirelo] were magnificent throughout.
I have no hesitation at all in recommending Burke Brothers.

Friendly personnel and very helpful.
Trust worthy and polite throughout. Nothing was too much for them.

We booked this company a month ahead of our moving date and completed all the necessary paperwork. We kept them informed at all stages and then confirmed the date (which was unchanged) at the point of exchange of contracts, 2 weeks in advance. We were then told that they had taken another booking the previous day and could not longer help us. My wife (who took the call) was upset and pleaded with them to help in some way, but they did not even have the courtesy to call back for another week (when they could still not assist) and at no stage was there even an hint of an apology. Do not trust these people.

Pros and cons
Untrustworthy
Poor customer service
Moved from Birmingham (United Kingdom) to Nottingham (United Kingdom).

Response of

Thank you for your feedback.
A month ahead of the moving date, the move had not been booked with us; neither as a provisional booking or as a confirmed booking. You had mentioned you were looking to move at the end of the month but at no time asked to reserve a vehicle and crew.
We are happy to take provisional bookings and reserve vans for as long as possible for customers to liaise with their solicitors.
At this time of year, and particularly with the current house market demand, moving companies require as much notice of a confirmed booking as possible to be able to allocate resources to complete moves efficiently. We hope you understand, therefore, that we were unable to accept the booking, when you did contact us to book with short notice.

Very impressed by Mr [name removed by Sirelo], so polite & respectful. Explained how the company worked & described what would happen on the moving days. When contacting the office, staff always polite & did what they said they would do.
Felt a little ignored as lockdown happened but understand this was an unprecedented situation.
On the moving days it was very wet, the crew did not protect any floor coverings of the house we were leaving. They did however provide protection for the Floors of the new property. Crew were polite & respectful. Seemed a little rushed at the end of the second day.

Recommendation

We were delighted with Burke Bros from start to finish. The whole process was very customer focused And friendly .Our initial visit from [name removed by Sirelo] to quote the cost of our move filled us with confidence and we had no hesitation in choosing Burke Bros for our move to Yorkshire. We were very lucky that we had the same team for removal and delivery. They were so efficient. Can’t rate the company highly enough.

Recommendation

The three chaps were nice, very hard working and extremely consciousness of our situation. We have a one year old and the whole house needed packing up. They were thorough, took great care of all our belongings as if they were their own. The speed in which they work (particularly when the competition was delayed by and we didn't get the keys for 3 hours) was incredible. I could not have wished for 3 better guys to do the work. My wife actually burst into tears when she thanked them and that was because the sheer amount of stress they had taken away form us was immeasurable.

Fantastic service and relatively good value for the full pack and move service.

Moved from Wombourne, Staffordshire (United Kingdom) to Wombourne, Staffordshire (United Kingdom).


No recommendation

The people involved were all lovely - super polite, helpful and efficient. The quote was good, and the admin/paperwork side of it all was good too. They held dates for us, responded to emails quickly and were patient with us changing the move date more than once. However, they didn't budget big enough vans for the job and it was a 2-day move and the men left too early on day 1 so day 2 was crazy. They had to send one of the vans back to our old house to pick up another load. We weren't out of our old house on time because there was too much to do on day 2. It was bad planning, of capacity to move and the workload required. They also lost part of a wardrobe they were due to rebuild at the new house. To their credit, when I'd found the part, they did come back and rebuild it for me.

Pros and cons
Admin, paperwork, quote
All people involved - back office, and the removal men - were courteous and helpful
Didn't correctly calculate how much stuff we had to move
Left too early on day 1, so day 2 was pretty horrendous
Moved from Sutton Coldfield (United Kingdom) to Bromsgrove (United Kingdom).

Response of

Thank you for your comments

We apologise for the crew having to leave early on the first day, this was due to the driver of the crew having a family emergency. We further apologies this wasn’t conveyed to you at the time, but as you will appreciate our main concern was getting the driver back to be with their family. As the majority of packing had been carried out, we anticipated this would take a short time to complete on the following morning, and thus maintaining the original schedule. However, as the crew had to leave the property as a matter of urgency they had not fully accessed the amount of remaining packing, which lead to a slight delay in the premises been vacated.

The correct manpower and vehicles had been resourced to the move. However, as the driver was not able to return to work on the second day of the move, due to the ongoing family emergency, and not having a spare driver qualified to drive an 18 ton vehicle, we had no alternative but to consign a slightly smaller vehicle. However, we appreciate this did have a knock on effect of the crew having to return to collect a few items.

I trust you will appreciate that at all times we worked with your best interests at heart, and I am sure if it wasn’t for the unforeseen circumstance occurring you would have been impressed with our service.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your kind praises where due and only sorry that in this instance our services were not to your expectations.

The head office was extremely helpful and gave advice about the part-load move. A week or so before the move, they altered their schedule within France of 2 deliveries to keep to their original date for our collection, in order to meet our deadline. The two drivers were very pleasant and willing and went the extra mile.

Moved from Bergerac (France) to London (United Kingdom).


Recommendation

Burke Bros took time to understand fully our requirements (multi-phase), offered choices to allow us (jointly) to settle on planned dates and phases of the overall move. The employees who collected our effects from two different locations and who subsequently delivered those effects to the other end of the country (after temporarily holding them in storage for a short period) were punctual, friendly, efficient and willing to go that 'extra mile' to ensure that the move went as smoothly and timely as we could have wished for. We have used Burke Bros before and, without hesitation, would use them again.

Pros and cons

Unfortunately our experience was very poor. Although the team of removal guys were pleasant and helpful we were not impressed with the service. In order to make life easier for ourselves we requested Burke Bros pack for us. We have used this service with other companies before, however your team clearly need training in this aspect. It would appear that the theory behind their packing was to cram as many items as possible into each box, knowing full well that items would be stored for a short while in our garage therefore meaning the boxes are ridiculously heavy to pick up and move and no care has been taken with items such as clothing and curtains which were rammed into boxes and therefore screwed up quite badly. Boxes have simple been labelled “kitchen” or “garage” with no attempt to describe what was in them. Therefore in order to locate any items several boxes have to be opened and searched through. Some items were not packed carefully resulting in a picture frame being cracked an.. Read more

Pros and cons
They arrived when they said
The team were pleasant and friendly - on the whole
Packing skills were awful, cramming as much into each box as possible resulting in boxes being ridiculously heavy and expensive clothing and items to be screwed up
Inability to label boxes so that items could be located without searching numerous boxes
Moved from Kinver, Stourbridge (United Kingdom) to Claverley, Wolverhampton (United Kingdom).

Response of

Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry to hear that your experience of moving with us did not meet your expectations.

All of our packing crews are trained to BAR standards and part of their training dictates that the boxes should be filled to capacity to reduce possible damage to the contents of the box during transit as partly empty boxes will allow too much movements of the possessions. Boxes also need to be filled to capacity to reduce the chance of them collapsing once they are stacked in transit and in storage.

Adequate resources were quoted for by our surveyor and these resources were provided during the moving days to complete the move to specification.

Mattresses should be wrapped for protection before loading onto our vehicles and we apologise if a mattress was moved without this procedure being carried out, but mattresses are loaded onto vehicles in a manner that ensures their protection during transit.

We use professional grade packing boxes onto which the names of the rooms are overlaid. Our crews tick the relevant room name to correlate with the contents. We apologise if this procedure has not enabled you to unpack efficiently and we take this feedback on board.

[names removed by Sirelo] were punctual and very patient. Did part loading the day before the moving date. My things stayed on the truck overnight in their courtyard.

They were patiently waiting for us when we were having the keys handover and home demonstration as we moved into our new built home. Excellent movers.

We are sorry to hear that you were dissatisfied with the service you received from us.
The quote issued covered all effects we understood you wished to move based on the initial survey conducted by our surveyor and correspondence with us prior to the moving day.
We were instructed only the contents of the shed were to be moved. However, during the move the crew were instructed to dismantle the shed and transfer to the new property.
Had we been advised of the requirement to dismantle the shed in advance, we could have added additional manpower.
The quote we provided for moving the contents of the house, shed and garden went smoothly and according to plan and didn’t require additional crew members.

My mum, aged 88 moved at relatively short notice to be closer to us. It was a relatively small load, but everything about the service was outstanding. Both care and delivery of furniture, moving it until it was in exactly the right place, and also the respect and dealings with my mum who was leaving her home of 33 years. Cannot recommend highly enough. We considered a cheaper quote and we are so glad we didn’t go with the alternative firm. Burke bros we’re worth every penny.

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.

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

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.

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

[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.

Thanks so much [names removed by Sirelo], you made the day completely stressless! :-)

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

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.

Respectful

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

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.

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.

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
