"★★★★★ Nothing was too much trouble. Not a skirting board or wall was touched in the new house. The price was excellent. Best of all, Jims Handy Moves were happy and friendly. In my experience in moving, which is long as a renter, it is really stressful. The last thing you need when you're moving is a team who are not happy to be there. I can tell you, Jamie and the team are happy to be there with a smile and it made our move so much easier with them there working with us with a friendly smile and a joke or too. I have already person ally recommended them to people I know and businesses I network with."

"★★ If you're worried about what removalist to have, Jim's is the one! AMAZING service could not have been any better, moved our house in 36 degrees on Tuesday, wonderful guys, sweat was pouring but didn't phase them. Oh, and the singing is free, lol, which helped us on a stressful day. Really can't recommend enough."

"★★ Today I met the most amazing, friendly and careful removalist ever. Jamie and his sidekick Nathan we absolutely fantastic, were super careful and so friendly. Being 33 weeks pregnant and wanting to move quickly and efficiently, these guys were number one in my books...would definitely recommend them for anyone who needs to love and wants it done right! Support a local business too. Thanks Jamie and Nathan."

"★★ Yesterday, I met the best removalist I have ever used, and I have moved many times over the last 70 years! Not only is he an ultra-strong guy, but he is also a clever, careful and caring person who has a great mathematical "eye" for moving furniture into tight or difficult spaces without any damage. The furniture is covered and secured the best I have seen. Ever! I thank you ever so much Jamie of Jims Handy Moves and recommend you to all who need a very special and efficient removalist. To you and your family I wish you all the best that life can offer you, now and for the future."
