Removers: Dave & Ash


Move from Derbyshire to Shropshire. We were down sizing and moving to a property which had been our second home and was partially furnished already. Fitting in and getting rid of duplicates was interesting.

"As a result of my work we have moved several times over my career. Ballards were the best removal firm we have ever had. This was because of the relaxed nature of their staff. Nothing was a problem or too daunting for them. They made the move go much more easily than we had thought and overcome the problems with a smile."

Removers: Jamie, Connor & Jordan


The weather, particularly snow on Friday on 4th Dec was particularly challenging.

"While surprised at the outlet about size (capacity of vehicles, the crew handled it all very efficiently and without fuss.

Jamie, Connor and Jordan were all very polite, courteous and helpful and are a credit to Ballards. They helped enormously making our move much less stressful than it may have been and we would without hesitation recommend Ballards and these three to others considering such a move."

Removers: George & Rowan
