    Removal companies around Birmingham

    Can any of you recommend a removals firm around the Birmingham area. I'm guessing a smaller firm will be cheaper that the large national companies. Thanks in advance.

    We used Newmans in Coventry a year ago for house move and can highly recommend them. Ok East side of Birmingham - but not sure if you were over the far side!!
    Tel is 02476 473661

    I would try pickfords as well. I just recently moved, it was classed as a 'small move' as I was only moving and storing large items such as bed, fridge, washing machine, wardrobes etc...clothes and boxes I stored at my boyfriends.

    Pickfords were cheapest by a few 100 pounds (think I paid about £170 for 10 large items inc 2 months storage!)

    Thanks. Would you mind telling me roughly how much it was?

    £650 + vat inc boxes etc (which they delivered and then collected a few days after the move) - they were supposed to be packing just my "nice" china and ornaments, but actually did the vast majority of my kitchen crocks too (the night before move -had van part loaded in advance)
    Ended up with big wagon plus smaller van mostly for garden things.

    Great guys - went way above expectation and we were ready way ahead of the family we swopped houses with (I downsized) and whole procedure seemed much more organised than for the other family (who used Britannia/Delo's if I rememember correctly)

    Do Not use 'CARE MOVE' or a company owned by Bernadette Dale!!!
    We used care home and they smashed our antique dresser and offered us £20! She was the rudest person I have evr had to deal with...never again! Be warned!
