Customer Reviews & Testimonials

“After contacting 4 removal services in my area, Armishaws were the only company to not only contact me back but with an hour of sending a query. I was offered a same day appointment to review our contents and all the staff from sales, to removal to Head Office were extremely polite and professional. I have 2 small children, a cat and dog and on removal day, all the guys were not only very patient with us explaining which things to go first around toddlers and tantrums but were respectful of the animals and my need to keep them calm. At the other end, what could have been a very stressful weekend, was made hassle free and everyone was keen to respect our new home. The guys worked almost non-stop and were in and out far quicker than I imagined. I would definitely recommend Armishaws for a stress-free and professional move.”

S Hannay – April 2023

“I picked Armishaws just because I thought the name and logo inspired confidence and I have not been disappointed. It’s a huge relief at such a life-changing time to be in such good hands. I am hugely grateful”

Stephanie Selmayr – April 2023

“What a helpful team, sensitive to moving an elderly lady – knowing when to stand back and when to jump in! Prompt and efficient, but without a sense of rushing. Everything packed into lorry carefully – no damages! Fantastic!”

Blaine Drew – April 2023

“I had been dreading this move so a huge shout out to Mark, Dave and Aidan for making the clearing of my later mother’s house so stress free and easy. Super efficient, really helpful and loved their banter which I really needed as it kept my spirits up! Armishaws were really helpful from start to finish and made the whole process feel very seamless. We have moved many times over the years, and I have to say that Armishaws are our top removal company to date. Thank you!”

Sophie Taylor – March 2023

“Move was awkward due to some unexpected access issues, but the guys stepped up to the challenge and got us moved in. I’ve used Armishaws before and they did a good job on both occasions. Would use again.”

Douglas Macdonald – March 2023

“The customer service were extremely facilitating when things had to change and extremely easy to get hold of and talk to. The crew were prompt and professional, they packed everything with care and made it look effortless. They took care when moving items and there was not a scratch on the property or items. They go above and beyond asking where you would like boxes placed in the new house. The whole experience was easy for us, all I had to do was keep the tea and coffee flowing. Would definitely choose Armishaws, thank you.”

Elliott Fisher – January 2023

Helen McAnally – November 2022

“Friendly, helpful and couldn’t do enough to make it easier for me. Fantastic service.”

Elliot Heeson – October 2022

“Darin and Rohan provided great service. They couldn’t have been more helpful, were very careful with all our belongings and happy to help move pieces of furniture around when we found that they wouldn’t fit where we had hoped! Very cheerful and polite which helps on what can be a pretty stressful day.”

David Wintle – October 2022

“Great removals team. Highly recommended. I moved home yesterday from a 4 bed to 5 bed on the same estate. I’m rubbish at remembering names (baby brain) but every one of the staff arriving to help were great. They worked so so hard. Everything packed so well and all furniture carried into the correct rooms. I have some very heavy items and I was worried about damages due to so much mirrored furniture but there weren’t any. It looked exhausting work and fair play to all those doing the job. Really friendly team who really helped ease the stress of moving.”

Emily King – October 2022

“I just want to Thank everyone for your massive support during my household furniture move. The move went very smoothly from packing, loading and also unloading at my new address. The two young boys were very good in there job, very professional and very approachable during process. Keep up the Good Work and thank you for assisting the Armed Forces families. Your support is kindly appreciated and will be highly recommended to the people in the forces.”

Timoci Waqanisau – September 2022

“I just wanted to say how smooth our move went with you and your guys! It was a pleasure…. considering it’s a very stressful time…. it was extremely short notice for you, you made our changes with ease and no fuss! I would like to say how great Jordan was packing etc, having him with us to the end made a massive difference! Arter was fantastic too. Ben and James also worked hard but only with us one or two days. We would highly recommend your company and will be in contact soon for a price on our final move to wales in a few months.”

Debby Player – June 2022

“Amazing customer service from start to finish. During the stressful period of moving home, they were there. Right from the quotation through to the finish. The ladies in the office are so patient! I think I drove them crazy with all the swapping around of dates! Thank you for burdening some of the stress and removing some of the pressure. Highly recommended.”

Sue Hirdle – June 2022

“Seamless, friendly, professional service from the quote stage, through packing and storage of our goods, through to the delivery into our new home. Each member of Armishaws staff that we have dealt with has been excellent. The removal team deserve a special mention for what was a very long day! Thank you”

Helen – June 2022

“The guys that handled our move over the two days were all hard working and a credit to the company. They had good humour through everything (including a 2 hour diversion less than 10 miles from their destination). It was a real pleasure dealing with this company and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone moving home.”

Kevin Benstead – May 2022

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff in your Wincanton company that I have had to deal with. From the office staff to the crews doing the manual work, all of them have been most courteous, polite and cheerful. The crew that packed my goods last year for storage and the crew that delivered it to Abergavenny last week could not have been better. The Polish driver was in attendance on both occasions and was extremely well organized and nothing was too much trouble for any of them. All your staff are a credit to your company, I have moved 14 times and I should know. I hope the company appreciate them.”

“Who would move house in a pandemic !!
Well we did and surprisingly it went very well, from start to finish … Paul the estimator (who incidentally was moving house at the same time) arrived and worked out a quote using bespoke software on his iPad / laptop. He said we aren’t the cheapest but we think you get what you pay for. The next day we received the quote this included all packing materials required as we opted for self packing our own boxes. We also paid extra to be on a preferential list which in the end did help as everyone seemed to be moving home at the same time. A couple of weeks later all the packaging arrived , Then our completion date was brought forward 2 weeks and after a bit of shuffling by Chris, the transport manager, got our new moving date secured. On the day 2 vehicles arrived, a large Pantechnicon lorry and a smaller lorry that was to go on another move after helping the first to load our belongings. Gareth & his crew, 5 guys in total, who loaded everything by lunchtime. We were called by our estate agent to collect the keys to our new home and the lads went for lunch After we had collected the keys and arrived at our new home the Pantechnicon was only 10 mins behind us and then started immediately putting our effects into whichever room we wanted & after an hour another 3 guys turned up to help them to unload !! Everything went very smoothly and later after we had unpacked everything a few days later we found that there were no breakages or damage …. A Very professional crew & that nothing was too much trouble for …. as such we highly recommend Armishaws they go the extra mile.”

Symon Ball – April 2022

“We just wanted to thank you for the excellent service that Armishaws provided last week. We were very impressed and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to others.
In particular we would like to express our sincere appreciation to Alan, Jordan and Gareth who carried out the removal in such a friendly and professional way. They felt almost part of the family over the three days and we were enormously grateful for their calm and helpful approach throughout what, you will appreciate, can be quite a stressful process.”

Anne Ringrose & Matthew Collings – April 2022

“Huge massive thank you for making our moving day so simple and straightforward. We were really apprehensive but Artur and Dan’s team made it go without a hinch. They are a credit to your company. Efficient, polite, discreet and friendly.”

Dave and Sally Sanger – February 2022

“We would like to let you know how delighted we have been with the level of service we received from your company before our move on 26th November, together with the exceptional hardwork and cheerful attitude of those who moved us; they were amazing!
We have unpacked all the boxes and found everything just as it should be – thank you!”

Janice and Bill Macdonald – November 2021

“Never been moved be a better company. So pleasant to deal with. Marvelous!”

Lynn Edwards – November 2021

“Darryn and Kyle, the two removal men were just brilliant in carrying out their duties. Nothing was too much trouble. They are an asset to your company and great Ambassadors for your business. My wife and I felt on occasions they went above and beyond the normal service and went out of their way to help ease the process and stress of moving.”

Andy Cookson – June 2021

“The two crew movers that moved me are exceptional. Polite, hardworking, and professional. Nothing was too much, no problems or complaints. They packed, moved me out, and moved me in. Constantly ensuring everything was where I wanted it and fine tune placement of my items.
I could not have moved in without their, and the team at Armishaws efforts.
Thank you for getting (injured) me, and my family in our new home safe and complete.”

Alan Edmunds – June 2021

“Excellent removals experience on a two day local move in Somerset. Despite hail, the removals men did a fantastic job, and kept a sense of humour throughout. Nothing was too much trouble putting things where we wanted them in various sheds when we arrived. Toby and Ben made the experience SO much more fun, and less stressful. Cannot recommend them too highly.”

Helen Williams – May 2021

Here’s what people are saying on independent review site Trustpilot;

“Armishaws successfully moved our effects from Somerset to Surrey in the first half of 2020 at a difficult time, coinciding with the corona virus outbreak and lockdown.
The move took place in two parts:

1. From our house in Somerset into Armishaws store in Wincanton at the end of January;

2. From storage to our new house in Surrey, into which we moved on 25 March, two days after the lockdown was announced.

Despite the lockdown, Armishaws managed to deliver half our effects from store to Surrey during the week after the lockdown and our move into the new house. They were able to deliver the other half in late May after the lockdown had sufficiently eased.The packing team in Somerset in January were efficient, willing, pleasant and cheerful. So were the delivery teams in March and May, who were careful to protect themselves and us from infection. There was only one minor breakage in a large consignment.Armishaws’ quote was not the cheapest but we chose them because we thought they would be capable of managing the relative complication and size of our move and that their depot at Farnborough would help with the logistics involved. They did not disappoint this expectation, although their initial quote did not take account of the difficulty of access to our new property and the consequent need for several smaller vans. Despite this unexpected extra cost, we have no regrets at having selected them and were most grateful for their service.

We also received excellent service from the management and storage teams at Wincanton Headquarters, including in searching their warehouse for one item of furniture which we thought had gone astray but which subsequently turned up underneath other stuff at the back of our new garage. They were very forgiving! We are most grateful.”

October 2020

“We could not have had better service during our recent house move than we received from Armishaws. The operation took two days and the two Armishaw employees who were engaged worked tirelessly throughout that time and with good humour.”

June 2020

“Armishaws recently moved all of my home to a flat in Oxford.
Darren and Matt did an amazing and thoughtful job- they were efficient, took great care of my possessions and completed the move without a single breakage!!
It was such a pleasure to watch them work (so terribly hard!) I feel very lucky to have two such diligent men to look after my move!
When I finally move out I will be asking you for another – but smaller trip to Oxford!
Please pass on my thanks to your Darren and Matt and congratulations on making Armishaws such a fine firm to deal with.”

May 2017

“I just wanted to give feedback on the guys that came to do our move on 19th January 2017.
They were very polite and helpful – nothing was too much trouble for them. They made the move a lot less stressful with their positive attitude.
Despite being such a cold day they were smiling throughout the day and never complained about anything. They were just great.
Also just would like to say that Craig was very helpful in providing the quotes and very polite too.
In fact all the people I dealt with at Armishaws were all very courteous.
We would definitely recommend your company to others.”

February 2017

“Just to say the move went well. Dave and his assistants did a marvelous job and Sue and I were very pleased with the way everything went.”

January 2017

“Customer service at HQ is second to none. This outstanding performance continued with the team who physically complete the move. Thank you and nice to see for once a civilian contractor to the military who actually care.”

December 2016

“Today we were moved by three of your removal staff Andy, Greg and Gary. I would like to congratulate your company on providing three friendly and very hard working members of staff – they represented your company in an extremely professional way.
They were delayed delivering to our new address as a result of our seller leaving the property late. However this proved to be no problem as Andy and Greg worked extremely hard to ensure the vehicle was unloaded in a quick and efficient manner.
Needless to say we were very pleased to be moved by Armishaws.”

November 2016

“Please forward this message to all senior staff at Armishaws.
I am taking this opportunity to express my sincere and deep gratitude to Matt and his colleagues for their performance during our move from Kingsley to Leicester last week.
In addition to their incredible hard work, they were professional in every way, polite, friendly, flexible and tolerant.
I am so happy that I chose your company for this exercise and will recommend you at every opportunity.”
