Just a message to thank the firm....We know it was only a short journey and house moves such as this are your 'bread and butter', but it was really reassuring to have such a great crew, for who nothing was too big an issue, and were just fantastic. They made the move a lot less stressful, were a great laugh, and made the whole experience so much easier. They are a credit to the company. We would recommend Burke Bros to anyone and will be praising your efficiency, professionalism, humour and good value for money to anyone who will listen!! Thank you again (Moving Wednesfield to Featherstone)

“Dear Mr Lucas, I wish to thank you for giving me excellent value for money and making my move smooth and easy at such a stressful time. Great credit for this must go to the team of young people who worked so hard in ensuring the contents of my home were moved and transported from Ruyton-X1-Towns to Wem with the greatest care and efficiency. When I arrived here a couple of hours later, the team had already moved most of my effects- not only that- they had placed all large items to best effect and taken extra care with my grandfather clock which required knowledge of its intricate workings….. So my thanks to you, Sir and I will certainly recommend your excellent business to others given the chance and if I move again I will surely seek your assistance. My grateful thanks, (Moving from Ruyton-X1-Towns to Wem, Shropshire)

They are a credit to your company and would highly recommend Burke Bros to anyone looking to move." (Moving Wombourne to Wombourne)

They arrived spot on time and were friendly and professional at all times. Their sense of humour helped calm us on what we expected to be a very stressful day.

Once again a big 'Thank You' to all concerned." (Moving from Birmingham to Stourbridge)
I just wanted to pass on my thanks to the removal men. They were more than helpful, they were excellent and felt that it was right that their employers knew what great guys they have working for them. They were professional, courteous and went the extra mile to help when the sette wouldnt fit through the front door, their expertise and knowledge saved the day. The furniture belonged to my late father who had recently passed away and as such had a very high sentimental value to me, the removal men were very careful with the furniture and I cannot praise them highly enough.

On completion day when we ran into problems, everyone from the front office, the operations team and the movers did all they possibly could, in fact more than we could reasonably expect, to try and make things easier for us.

Hi Gary, ".... I wanted to say thanks to you and all of your team at Burke Bros in relation to our recent house move which completed last Friday. From the very outset I was impressed by the friendliness and professionalism from your team, with Paul visiting our old property to provide a quote and some helpful advice on the process; the office team who I dealt with in the run up to the completion date; and the team on the day who did such a great job for us in moving everything we owned from one property to the other........ They often say house moving is one of the most stressful experiences in life, and with these issues it certainly tested our stress levels, but having your team on hand during this process made a massive positive difference to our overall house move experience, so hence my email to say thank you for providing such a great service throughout. I would (and have been!) recommending your company without hesitation to anyone moving house. This is the first time I’ve used a professional packing and removal service for a house move and I have to say it was money well spent.
