  • I would recommend this business

Amazing service under very difficult circumstances (C-19). The team did an exceptional job a) packing the day before and b) unloading / reconstruction furniture on moving day. I cannot recommend them enough.

  • I would recommend this business

We used Bournes for my parents’ move, and I cannot recommend them highly enough. From the initial meeting and quotation service, to managing the timing and smooth transition through the actual event. I cannot praise highly enough the team of guys who carried out the packing and removals over the 2 days. They were totally professional, considerate and respectful of not only all the possessions and the care with which they packed and moved them but just as importantly, of my parents, moving from their home of 35 years which has been an emotional time for all the family for many reasons. However their attitude, sense of humour and fun was a complete tonic and made a stressful process so much easier and indeed, enjoyable. Thank you Freddie,Phil, Pete,Rory and Darren - you were fantastic!

  • I would recommend this business

We used Bournes for a second time in 3 years and they made an otherwise stressful event - much much easier. The crew were nothing less than brilliant. Hopefully we won't be moving for a long long time, however, I would happily recommend Bournes to anyone who is moving.
