An excellent, well mannered and efficient team of packers arrived when expected, and kept us informed at various stages during the pack.The team took 2 days to completely remove everything from our house and garden moving them into storage for our move.Would recommend them to anyone wanting a hassle free pack.

Mark and his team were great ambassadors for Woods Removals a real credit. Not only did they show true professionalism but were highly skilled in their job of work. We were very stressed when our moving day arrived but then Mark and his team arrived and all our stresses began to dissipate making light work of the job in hand whilst adding humour to our day. We could not recommend Woods and their staff highly enough and would not hesitate to recommend them.

I still can’t believe how stress free our move day was. Dan and Dan took enormous care with our items, were quick and efficient, and were so friendly. I am so pleased that we went with Woods, and we will be using them again for our next move.

This is the 3rd time we have used Woods and once again we were very pleased. Our only criticism was that having put our furniture into secure containers for storage, they transferred our first container load on to a van before bringing it back, which we were not expecting.

Generally a good experience. All 3 team members were friendly, polite and respectful of covid precautions. My only criticism was that the packing was not very thorough. Because everything was going into storage, I was unable to check all the cupboards until after they had left and managed to borrow a step ladder. Quite a lot of random items had been carelessly left behind in the higher cupboards, which was a little annoying. Other than that I was very pleased. Will wait to see what happens later in the year when everything comes back out of storage.

Excellent service from the first phone call and the initial site visit through to the packing up, moving and unpacking. The teams were really professional and friendly and worked methodically. We've done a few moves in our time, and for end to end service, these guys were the best.

Honestly, I couldn’t have wished for a better moving team. Such a lovely bunch of blokes, Darren, Dan and Dan. Funny, polite, so careful, didn’t stop moving all day. They made a really stressful thing enjoyable. Thrilled and grateful.

We could not fault the excellent service we received from our initial enquiry to the move from Dorset to Northumberland. What could have been a very stressful transition was made easier by the cheerful and competent three man crew - a crew who worked tirelessly from morning until night to get us packed and loaded. They began on their long journey well after dark and we are indebted to them. Thank you Woods for your professionalism. Picture shows our belongings arriving safely in Alnwick after an epic journey.

Woods found a date that was quick and easy to agree. They assessed the quality and cost very quickly. The cost was very competitive. The guys who came were careful, considerate and concerned for our wellbeing under the Covid rules. Very proficient, timely and friendly. I would strongly recommend Woods to anyone who asked. Everything was packed with care and we have had no breakages. Thank you all so much. Definitely a positive part of the move. Collection of boxes is a great help so bravo.!!!

Using Woods was the best part of the moving process. Quote and booking was easy and informative. The day of the move arrived and the team arrived, polite, cheerful and set to the task immediately. What a dream, no snags, no problem that wasn't insurmountable. Even the most awkward items were handled as if it were their own.Unloading, even with solicitors holding up the key transfer was tackled with the same gusto. The team soon identified the best options in the new property and before we knew it it was over.A big thank you to Woods and to the removal team themselves I am most grateful.A great job by a brilliant team. Thank you.

Recently used Woods’ pack and move service. What a super team from the quote, operators on the phone to the actual moving: it was all top notch. Saved a huge amount of stress and worry and they were really helpful when we weren’t sure about our exact completion date. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. They moving team were fabulous and everything went smoothly.

Whilst Woods were in no way the cheapest of the quotes that we had for moving, we went with them initially because we were impressed by their approach to the job. We were in no way disappointed on the day.Three men and a large van arrived, promptly, to clear our house. They were all really nice guys and worked extremely hard. We were impressed by how quickly they managed to load the van, and similarly impressed at how quickly they unloaded at our new home.In summary, an excellent job well executed by pleasant and efficient people.Further to my earlier review, after posting, I contacted Woods to claim the free pair of personalised Cornishware mugs that they were offering. After two months and several emails to them, none of which has been even acknowledged, let alone answered, and there is still no sign of my mugs.Extremely disappointing. and actually downright rude!

We were very impressed by Woods' customer care from their first visit to the actual removal. When it appeared that we had more to move than originally planned, the team worked longer hours to get the move completed in time. They were courteous, friendly and got everything to our new house without any breakages or damage. Highly recommended.

What an excellent service Wood’s packers did for me although there was more to do than they first thought. Not a grumble and always a smile, thank you so much.UPDATEWe have finally retrieved our items after being in storage for about 2 years! They were delivered to two addresses and exactly when I wanted them, all done with polite, cheerful and professional manner - thank you

Woods were very easy to deal with because there were knowledgeable team members who promptly helped me whenever I phoned to organise payment and book dates. I have used many removal firms but this is the first one which moved my furniture without any damage, dust or damp. The vehicles were very clean inside and outside. No dents or rust. Well done to the happy and helpful crews. You can be proud of yourselves.

We had fantastic service from everyone at Woods, and we can’t thank the team who moved us out and in to our new home enough. Nothing was too much trouble, the guys were cheerful and smiling even when it seemed the piano just couldn’t get round the bend in the corridor....and that was only one of several difficulties. They were simply outstanding. I would thoroughly recommend them.

Wow! I had never used professional movers before but Woods were great! Charlie packed up our entire house in just hours, and then Richard and Charlie loaded our entire life onto the truck before 11.30 on moving day. They were so organised, calm and kind. At what could be a stressful time, they kept us laughing and made the whole thing enjoyable. Thank you so much!

We needed to put our lounge furniture into storage for 6 weeks. The removers and then the deliverers were very efficient, polite and treated our furniture as if it were their own. Storage costs very reasonable, transit costs we thought were expensive, but it was worth it for peace of mind. Would definitely recommend.

Really excellent customer service both on the phone and in person. Arranged my removal (sofa and chair) quickly and for an excellent price. Despite hitting a few difficulties in getting the sofa in, the staff were professional in getting the job done. It is well worth getting professional removers if you have to move a larger piece of furniture as they know all the tricks. Highly recommend.

Moving house is stressful but the Woods team made it as easy as possible. They were professional and efficient, and at the same time good-humoured and friendly. At the start of the two-day move I wondered if they’d get it all done in time, but of course they did, almost to the minute, without appearing unduly hurried. Definitely recommended.

So far so good. Shaun has been excellent in supporting our removal to storage and in planning for our shift from storage in to our new home. Exchange was delayed and this meant that we had to commit before dates were agreed and Woods took it in their stride. They have an excellent reputation and I am confident that they will do a good job for us.

Our recent move was the third time that we have used Woods, and have always found them to be a very professional company. The three men that moved us could not have been more obliging, nothing being too much trouble for them. The amount of boxes they had to carry to the top of our three story house made me exhausted just watching them! I have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending Woods and should we move again ( heaven forfend) I will certainly call on Woods again.

Woods Removals provided me with the solution on how best to sort the contents of 5 large containers. Shaun and I were able to devise a plan whereby some items would go straight to an auction house, some would be delivered to a new house and the rest would be stored pending further deliveries. The job was accomplished in a professional and efficient way.Thank you Woods -

We did not have a good experience with this company in the run up to the removal. They charged a substantial cancellation fee after unilaterally deciding that a provisional date was fixed. Hence they made an already stressful situation even worse. We would not therefore recommend or use them again.

Can’t recommend Woods highly enough. Quote and confirmation process was easy and efficient. They moved us on one of the hottest days of 2018 and were absolutely brilliant. Quick, careful, friendly and good humoured. They were also great with the kids, letting them look inside the ‘big lorry’ and helpped make a stressful day seem fun.

Superb experience from start to finish. Shaun came out to see our house and made me feel completely reassured about our upcoming move. On the actual move days themselves Charlie and his team were amazing - friendly, professional, so careful with all our things and super tolerant of three excited children and a dog. I wouldn’t hesitant to recommend - a really first class experience. Thank you so much, we are very grateful.

Woods were very professional. Shaun was very helpful prior to the move and appeared unfazed by our extremely late confirmation of the exact date. The guys doing the move were hard working, friendly and, most importantly, very careful with our belongings. One detailed point where we would have been even happier - it rained when moving in but the guys had nothing to put down to protect the stair carpet which suffered. Overall, pleased and would use Woods again.
