Recent Removals News in the Southampton Area

We were recently contacted by a home owner on the day of her move! Her removal company, not us I should state, had not supplied a large enough lorry to move her possessions down to her new home in Taunton, and had requested that she find some one else to take the balance!! As we have a number of vans and drivers, we were able to supply an emergency service to save the day, arriving with her in Southampton within 3 hours of the call and delivering to Taunton within 7 hours of the call; perhaps we should rename ourselves International Rescue!!

We also recently moved a client into storage that they had arranged, from a furnished flat in Bishops Waltham. Arriving at the storage facility we realised that everything was not going to fit in the booked unit but with quick liaison with our client and the storage facility we were able to change to a larger unit which housed the clients possessions with ease, keeping the client happy.

Last minute moves seem the order of the day, with shorter and shorter notice being given for the big day. This applies whether you're buying and selling a house, moving into or out of rented accommodation, or doing a council swap. Why this is I just don't know, but what I do know is that Shift It Removals will do everything we can to make sure that your relocation, goes as smoothly as possible, even at minimal notice. We can supply teams throughout the week and at weekends as well, including Sundays.

Shift It Removals are happy to travel throughout the UK to meet your requirements. A recent job involved moving a family out of a 3 bedroom flat overlooking Southampton water (with a view to die for) down to a small village called Coleford in Somerset. No water here but lovely rolling hills.

Finally, I am pleased to say that we recently moved Mrs M from Thornhill into sheltered accommodation. Nothing special in that other than it was her third move with us in 18 months! She is hoping to stay in her new flat for considerably longer, perhaps I should offer her a frequent mover discount!!


Hi Phil,
I am glad you asked, since I meant to comment last week, but had to dash off on a business trip. The reason I contacted you for the second move was that the first move went so smoothly and the movers took their time were to move things safely without touching any walls and careful moving things over the floors, plus they were very professional! So a very good impression. Following the first move I did not think about contacting any other movers for prices as I would rather pay a few pounds more and get a trusted service than catch the pennies. This move exceeded the first move as far as the personnel involved, professional, with a good sense of humour and very patient, when several times we changed our minds about positioning and location. Can't say enough good things about the chaps that moved us, careful as before about minding walls, doors, floors and just pleasant to be around.
Thank you!!!! Regards,

Dear Hannah,
I would commend without reservation the attitude, friendliness and work ethic of the two guys who carried out my move on Saturday. Given they had already completed a job Guildford, their enthusiasm to please was all the more impressive. More generally, especially given the late notice of my request, I considered Philip Smale's flexibility, commitment and communication to be first class. As you might be able to tell, I had a very good experience with Shift it Removals and will not hesitate to use you again or to recommend you to my friends.
Best regards
