Very impressed with service

5
Best service I have experienced with a moving company so far. From booking to completion, staff were friendly and helpful. Especially Clayton and Sam were an outstanding team on the day of my move. Nothing was too much trouble, they were extremely polite, hardworking, friendly, careful and went out of their way to have all my belongings safely arrive in my new home. I can highly recommend Nelsons and certainly would use them again. Thank you - you made a stressful time more manageable for me.

Highly recommended - personal and efficient service

Coronavirus. That says a lot and how it is affecting progress - or not - of house sales making it so hard to arrange removals just now, but George Nelson and his staff were flexible when the dates kept changing, so efficient and helpful - extremely responsive and prompt in replies to questions. He personally supervises what's going on, the lads on the vans were quick, efficient, polite and friendly and very quiet! After 26 moves in 50 years, we can safely say this was one of the calmest and stress free moves we've ever had. Thoroughly professional and to be highly recommended and at a very reasonable price. Thanks to all involved

Exceptional service

I had a particularly challeging move recently. Mr Nelson pulled out all the stops to make sure that he and his hardworking team completed my house move with a little stress as possible under difficult circumstances.
I am very appreciative of the kind and professional service that I received. Thanks to all involved.
