“I want to say a big thank you to Ballards for a good move from Newark to Nottingham. I particularly wanted to write to say how professional and helpful Dean was. He and Ian were the consistent pair on the job over the three days and they dealt with everything professionally and always went the second mile. I was particularly appreciative of how they kept going on the hottest day since records began. Both Dean and Ian are a very good advert for and a credit to your firm. ”
“Thank you for moving us from the UK to France. From the moment we chose your company to handle the move we had one less thing to worry about. The two guys travelling over to France kept us informed at all times of their progress, and coped with a flat tyre quickly and efficiently. Upon arriving they both worked hard emptying the van in extreme temperatures and were so helpful in placing our furniture exactly where we wanted it. The work was hard and tiring but they did it with a smile on their faces and were happy to assist on extra little jobs that we were not strong enough to manage. We cannot thank them enough.”

“The move went very smoothly. The main challenge for all was the weather!! The guys did a brilliant job and never stopped, taking care of all furniture etc was covered also the flooring. We were very pleased with the 'pick up' of our belongings and the 'drop off'. The guys were absolutely brilliant. Not once did they moan (with the weather being really bad). They just got on with their jobs. A credit to the company.” The move went very smoothly. The main challenge for all was the weather!!

“We are so grateful to Ballards for holding our provisional booking date which we couldn't confirm until less than 48 hours before we moved. Superb service. As anxious retireds we were reassured throughout also the move took only 8 1/2 hours from arriving at our house in Grantham to leaving us in our new house in King's Lynn. Cheerful even in the rain. We are so glad we chose Ballards. Thank you all.” We are so grateful to Ballards for holding our provisional booking date which we couldn't confirm until less than 48 hours before we moved.
