Customer Testimonials

Thank you for very smooth, well organised and painless move from Asia back to the UK. The provided service was very professional and friendly. If we are ever moving again, you guys are def on the top of our list!

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.

I was very pleased. Especially when my shipment arrived safely to my home in the UK as the crew were extremely polite and very helpful. No job was too big for them. They even assembled all my garden furniture. I was very grateful

A fantastic removal company. Hard working, friendly, decent and at a very reasonable rate. Would be happy to recommend them to anyone moving overseas.

Our container arrived today. Moved from England to US. Fabulous service all round everyone we dealt with helpful and very professional. I would highly recommend Bournes.

Wonderful company with great, personalised service. Thank you!


Moving House with Bournes Moves, a BAR Removal Company

To celebrate our 140th Anniversary we asked our crews to submit their photo's, video's and stories of 'Quality' in action, to help us show what doing a great job means to us, and what it's really like to move with Bournes.

This entry from driver Jon and his team (Lee, Andy, Jack and Drew) show's a day in the life of a Bournes Moves crew.
