Hi Michael,
Hope you are getting plenty of rest and relaxation this weekend after your gruelling week!
We would like to thank you so much for the great job you did of moving our stuff from Southampton to Devizes. Under extreme weather conditions, and with the frustration of not gaining access, plus us turning up late, then you not getting back to Southampton 'til very late, you never failed to have a cheery countenance and a smile throughout it all. You truly are a star!
Kindest regards, Juliet

Thorners’ is an Almshouse Charity based in Southampton providing sheltered housing. I have used the services of Handy Van Removals on 22 occasions when transferring our elderly residents between our flats due to a major redevelopment programme. During this time I have found HandyVan Removals to have an excellent work ethic.The team are reliable, punctual, professional, hard working, co-operative and polite. They displayed patience and understanding when dealing with our elderly residents. Based on my experience of HandyVan Removals I am more than happy to recommend their services to others

I was completely satisfied with the service from the team at Handy Van Removals. They brought and picked up packaging supplies and boxes as requested. They completed the removal with a positive and professional attitude. I would highly recommend the company and would use them again for another similar removal.

I recently relocated to Southampton and ‘Handy Van Removals’ were recommended to me as a friendly and local removal service. When the guys turned up and did the job for me I was very impressed by their smart appearance and pleasant, friendly manner. They got the job done in less time than originally expected and they were extremely careful and diligent. Excellent service, competitive price and highly recommended.

Steve - Southampton

The guys at ‘Handy Van Removals’ came highly recommended and I can see why. I have now used them for two minor jobs (including an ebay pick-up) and two major house moves. Each time I found their professional service to be friendly, honest and efficient plus genuinely excellent value for money. No matter the size of the job I highly recommend them.

I have received excellent service from ‘Handy Van Removals.’ From the moment I requested a quote from the manager he was extremely helpful and easily contactable. He answered  queries promptly and the contact we had before the move ensured everything went smoothly on the day. I found the service very good value for money and although my move was a small job it was given time and care of a much bigger move. I would highly recommend this service!

Niamh - Orpington Kent

The team helped me with our move from Southampton to Wales over a period of two weeks with two runs. We must say that they were very accommodating and helpful. Their manor was professional and their attitude positive. If ever we decided to return to Hampshire we would use them again without hesitation.

Dave & Catherine - Glyncorrwg  

HandyVan Removals really helped to make my move to the Isle of Wight easy and stress free. Taking time to deliver boxes before the move, removing items for recycling as well as negotiating all my belongings up to the third floor, they provide top level customer service at a cost effective price. Happy to recommend them!

Sally-Anne - East Cowes

I used ‘Handy Van Removals’ for both moving effects into storage and then to my new flat a little while later. The quote was eminently reasonable. The service was both prompt and friendly. The advice I got (which was volunteered without prompting) from the team about storage and other logistical problems was absolutely spot on and actually saved me money. The van turned up on time and everything was delivered and moved in safe as sound. I would thoroughly recommend HandyVan Removals without hesitation.

Tej - Plymouth

Michael at Handy Van Removals helped us to move. He was really friendly, cheerful and managed to pack everything we have into the van in one go and ensured it was strapped in and secure. He arrived early and we were able to move everything in good time. We thought the service was excellent value for money and would recommend using your company to our friends.
