"A cheery approach. They kept us all laughing and relaxed in a move that should have been incredibly stressful for everyone. They even climbed a balcony to get 2 chairs upstairs. All with no moans or groans they just got on with it. I trusted them and they made the move a good experience."
Farnham is a market town in Surrey with a population of almost 40,000 people and around 35 miles from London. The town has a rich history dating as far back as the early Stone Age with the first known settlement some 7,000 years ago. It’s historic highlights include 12th century Farnham Castle and the remains of England’s first Cistercian abbey.
Known for its Georgian homes and leafy streets set in amongst some of the country’s most verdant countryside, a move to Farnham puts you within easy reach of the capital yet firmly in the midst of quintessential Britain. Residents enjoy an award-winning monthly Farmers’ Market, the annual Farnham Food Festival as well as a great blend of independent boutiques and high-street stores.
Farham has always had a long association with pottery, crafts and the arts which these days manifests itself through various studios, galleries, museums and the town’s campus for the University for the Creative Arts.

Most notably, the town is a great base from which to explore the surrounding countryside including the 153 mile North Downs Way which runs all the way to Canterbury in Kent.

Now the dust has settled and we are more or less straight it's high time we wrote to express our thanks and appreciation for the very efficient service given by the team of men over the last two days move. They were quick, helpful and always very polite and seemingly unflappable and amazingly patient. I understand that one of them also carried out a good deed to an unknown neighbour in the close, who had locked herself out!
Mr Adams - Farnham
We wish to thank you and your employees for the exemplary manner in which you carried out our removals from Liphook and the kindness shown to my wife, knowing she was very upset. Once again many thanks.
John T - Guildford
I just wanted to pass on our gratitude at the enormous efficiency and friendliness with which you and all your team carried out our move. It made a potentially stressful situation almost pleasurable and we were very impressed by the standard of your service and also at the level of aftercare. So thank you very much.
Mrs Charley - Hampshire
This is somewhat belated, but a non the less sincere thank you to you and your team for the very friendly and efficient way in which you handled my move. I would without hesitation recommend your company, indeed, I have already sung your praises to friends, family and neighbours. Without doubt, we shall meet up again when we decide to move again!
Paul Williams - Guildford
I felt I really wanted to let you know how fantastic your removers were during my recent move. They were efficient, friendly, professional and courteous at all times. Both days went really smoothly and I am so grateful to all the staff that were involved in my move. I really can't praise them highly enough. With my grateful thanks for a job truly well done.

The guys worked increasing hard, and have made a very difficult four days bearable - Nothing was too much trouble (of if it was they didn't show it!).
Andrew R - Farnham
My family and I have nothing but praise for your excellent removal service. Not one thing was damaged. All the men were helpful, polite and very kind when I was in trouble on one occasion. You have already been highly recommended to friends. Thank you
