    William SulkinWilliam Sulkin ★★★★★ The Burke & Wills team were marvellous: efficient, tactful, patient, helpful and friendly. A potentially stressful and bewildering experience was made straightforward and doable. We thank them hugely and cannot recommend their service too highlyThree months on Burke & Wills helped us at last move into our new flat: this involved a journey to Suffolk and a complicated release of three batches of our things from their store. All this was cheerfully and efficiently accomplished. The team went indefatigably out of their way to settle us in. We cannot imagine a better service.Response from the ownerHi William,Thanks a bunch for reviewing us, its much appreciated. I'll pass on your review to Tony & the crew.We look forward to moving you back out of store when the time arises.

Would recommend highly.Sarah KingSarah King ★★★★★ Couldn’t speak highly enough of the service we received from Burke & Wills Removals, from the office staff during booking to the the two lovely guys who did the job for us, they couldn’t have been more professional and friendly.Will be using again later in the year when my other daughter moves flats!michelle armitagemichelle armitage ★★★★★ This is the second time we have used Burke and Wills and when it came to moving this time I didn’t even think about using another firm as they did a great job the first time. Same this time. Efficient, great friendly people, punctual… everything you could need.Andrew A. HalimAndrew A. Halim ★★★★★ Excellent from start to finish! They have been highly recommended and we have no hesitation to recommend them to anyone else. Just to give you perspective, we have invited 7 firms to provide us with a quote but Burke & Wills has impressed us. Mark provided a quote following a video call. He was well prepared and provided us with some advices. Lloyd came on the first day to pack and coordinated the whole move. He is great and deserves a bonus! The move from London to East Sussex went so smooth and stress free. Massive thank you to B&W.LoisLois ★★★★★ Fantastic service from the team. They arrived 7:30am and everything had been moved and furniture assembled by 1pm at our new address.

Anthony WilliamsAnthony Williams ★★★★★ This is the second time in three years that we have used Burke and Wills for a move and the experience this around was just as impressive as the first. Mark Pusey was extraordinarily helpful as the timing of our move was uncertain. He displayed enormous flexibility. Once the date was finally set, the team was brilliant - hardworking, resourceful and extremely friendly. As everyone knows, moving is stressful. It is hugely reassuring to deal with a team that is dependable and won’t let you down. Once again - many thanks to all involved.Anthony and Dawn Williams, BatterseaResponse from the ownerHi Anthony, thanks again for your review. Really great to see we able to help you with another successful move. You know where we are should you be on the move again. ATB for the team at BWR.

Wishing you all the best from us at BWR. Tammie Raven-WilliamsTammie Raven-Williams ★★★★★ Absolutely outstanding! I am so thrilled that I went with B&W even though I winced at the quote initially. They were worth every penny and the man hours they put in for the cost is phenomenal. Such lovely guys too - so friendly and jolly. They packed and moved me so quickly and everything was so carefully done. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone else.Response from the ownerHi Tammie, great of you to leave us a review.

And thank you for leaving us a 5* review. We like to take the stress out of moving, one friendly step at a time. ATB Eleanor HolmesEleanor Holmes ★★★★★ Totally brilliant service. The team were incredibly quick, efficient, as well as being friendly and entertaining. It made what is meant to be an incredibly stressful experience, really enjoyable. We opted for the packing service as well as the move, and although not cheap, it was definitely worth the money. We’d 100% recommend.I’m terrible with names but the 3-man team who helped us on 1 March was just fantastic so a big shout out to them. As I wrote on their feedback form at the time, they were “absolute legends”.Also not to forget, the quote and booking process was made really easy by Mark Pusey. We had a 10 minute FaceTime where I walked around the flat and he assessed everything we own and then came back to us with a fixed price to pack up and move. Very quick and simple and got the quote back the same day! Thanks, Mark.Response from the ownerHi Eleanor, great to see we've done yet another brilliant service and that you had a successful move. You were in great hands from the start, Mark Pusey is a legend in video surveys and doesn't miss a thing. I'll help you out with the names of the guys so you had Luke, Mark and Josh that did the hard work for you but making it look easy. Thanks again from us at BWR for you 5* review.

They have been excellent communicating and accommodating to any questions I had. The men arrived on time, told me the plan on how they will take everything and took their time to wrap everything.

They were excellent throughout the whole process - very organised and helpful and on the day they were brilliant - no complaints about moving a lot of heavy things out of our top floor flat and we were fully moved into our new house by 3pm! Would definitely recommend.Response from the ownerHi Rebecca, I'm glad everything went well on your move with Ricky & the boys. And a big THANK YOU for leaving us a 5* review. We wish you all the best in your new home. William MackinlayWilliam Mackinlay ★★★★★ Thank you to the team that moved my flat last week. I had three of your men (ably led by Tom) working with me for the morning and they provided an excellent service: they arrived on time, they were polite, efficient, and thorough.Response from the ownerHi William, we are glad that your move went well. You were definitely in good hands with Tom, Louie & Jai. Thanks again for the 5* review. All the best from all of us at BWR. Mary Ann TurnbullMary Ann Turnbull ★★★★★ From first contact this firm was brilliant. They had been recommended, I had seen their vans a lot and I like using local companies so i didn't shop around with any vigour. The estimate was done quickly and I felt in safe hands immediately. Back office excellent. The men who did the real job were efficient, reassuringly confident and cooperative with my cleaning team. And once we had completed the transaction and had journeyed the short distance, everything was unloaded in a trice. What I had thought would be the most awful day was in fact fine. The new place looked like a set from Les Mis but the barricades are already much diminished and I am returning 70+ boxes already. I too recommend this firm.Response from the ownerHi Mary Ann,Its really nice of you to leave Mark, Tom & the crew a great review. We are super glad you had a great experience with us. All the best in your new property from us at BWR. Philip BeardPhilip Beard ★★★★★ I was recommended to Burke & Wills Removals by a friend and the quality of their professional approach and the implementation of packing and them delivery and unloading was exceptional. As important, was the quality and level of device and friendliness of the team allocated to the job. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.Response from the ownerHi Philip,We really appreciate you taking the time to give us a 5 star review. I'll pass your feedback to Jason, Stephen and the team. All the best from us at BWR. Richard BarnesRichard Barnes ★★★★★ We had to carry out a house clearance and put everything into storage for one of our clients.

Nothing was too much for them and they were very efficient to deal with getting the quote exactly right and any questions we had.

Thank you Lloyd, Jaheen and JoshResponse from the ownerHi Robert,Thanks for your review. At least its a lot warmer now we are redelivering your contents out of store 🙂 Andy WyattAndy Wyatt ★★★★★ Very impressed with Burke & Wills. The communication was very clear from the office team, the cost was competitive and when it came to removal day – the guys arrived on time, were extremely polite, took care of all of our belongings and unloaded quickly.

Burke & Willis were excellent throughout. A friend recommended them as he also rated them. Jason was great at setting up the move.

For the move, Tony and the team were excellent and very careful with our possessions. Would recommend without hesitation.Response from the ownerHi Nick,So nice of you to review Jason & the crew. We take great pride on getting it right. We thank you for any recommendations that come our way. Nick HayesNick Hayes ★★★★★ If you are wondering which removal company to use, look no further. We used Burke and Wills for our recent house move in SW London and we couldn’t have been happier.We couldn’t have wished for a better team, Taylor, Ben, Nick and Co were so helpful, super polite and really engaging with the kids.

I am very happy with the service!Response from the ownerThanks Frits, Removals can be tricky indeed so I'm glad to see we provided you with a very happy service. Andrew TilleryAndrew Tillery ★★★★★ Impeccable service provided by Karel and his team who did an excellent job of packing and removing our furniture and belongings from a 4 bedroom terrace to a 3 bedroom flat. The team were adequately resourced and efficient. As was to be anticipated, unexpected situations arose during the exercise which it had not been possible to plan for in advance. In some cases the solutions involved the provision of services by Burke & Wills which had not originally been discussed as part of the exercise. We particularly appreciated the authority delegated to Karel by his senior manager Jason in head office such that Karel could not only propose helpful solutions but also implement them without continually reverting to head office. Overall a very streamlined and successful process carried out within budget, according to schedule and with absolutely no breakages or damage. I would have no hesitation in recommending Burke & Wills to any family looking for a removal firm in LondonResponse from the ownerDear Andrew.Thanks for reviewing our service.Downsizing can have its problems and yes, a good crew and team change these problems into solutions. I'll pass on your thanks to Karol, Jason & the crew. Julie SmithJulie Smith ★★★★★ Excellent experienceWe used Burke and Wills for a very short notice office relocation.From start to finish, we found the service professional and efficient. The packing service was fantastic and the removal days themselves were extremely smooth, with the team going above and beyond to ensure that the move was as stress free as possible.We would definitely recommend the Burke and Wills team.Response from the ownerHi Julie,Thanks for the 5* review. We are glad to have been able to provide a great service at short notice. You came to the right company.

This is the second time they’ve moved us in the last eight years and they were just as good this time round as last time. They moved us from London to Wiltshire which was a big deal for us but they made it so much easier. Incredible crew headed up by Lloyd - his skill, knowledge and ability to lead his team as well as help me make sensible choices on a stressful day was evident throughout. His whole crew was hardworking, polite and lovely to have around to be honest. From Terance’s initial inspection through to when they drove away to return to London, the whole team really looked after us and at a good price too. Everything arrived safely and well looked after as well. Thank you!!Response from the ownerHi Joy,It was a great pleasure to move you again. I'll pass on your review to LLoyd & the crew. Wishing you all the best down in Wiltshire.
