“We would certainly recommend your service

 

Dear Dean

You may recall that your firm organised our removal from Castley Bank, Grayrigg, recently, and took our furniture into storage for several weeks. Last week, we finally got into the house we had bought, and your team moved us in on Wednesday and Thursday.

We have only today been reconnected with broadband, otherwise I would have emailed you last week, to express our great satisfaction at the way your two employees carried out their jobs. They had to deal with a tricky location ; parked on the narrow winding road outside the house that was not only the main road through the village, but was a bus route. They hit bin day, the house opposite was taking huge Jewsons deliveries, and the Brewery Dray Horses were delivering beer to the local pubs. Several of the locals commented on how professional they were.

We found them very pleasant people to be with ; considerate, helpful, patient  and friendly.

At such an exhausting time we really did appreciate the support we got.

Perhaps you could pass on our thanks to them ; we would certainly recommend your service in the light of our own experience.

Yours sincerely,

Christine and Michael Edgar.

“I was very impressed

 

Dear Dean

Great review received from this customer whose office removal we did recently!

“Can I just say how good the lads were and how smoothly the move went – they were really good and went the extra mile to help out when something wouldn’t fit through the door of our new office – I was very impressed. A lovely group of guys too – very chatty, happy and polite. So please say a big thank you to them from me as I was dreading it and they made the day go so smoothly. I will definitely recommend your company to friends, colleagues and other businesses.

We used a different company to move our archive boxes as your quote was unfortunately too expensive – I have to say in this case you certainly get what you pay for – your guys far outweighed the service we got from the other company.”

“Massive thank you from me and the team”

 

Morning Dean,

I wanted to e mail you all this morning to say a HUGE thank you for the parts you all played in ensuring the Walk to Remember was the huge success that it was and ensuring everyone had such a great experience. The whole event went without a hitch, and we have received nothing but positive feedback, this is true testamant to the support I received from you all.

Events such as these would not be possible to host without the generous support of people like yourselves. I am in awe of all the people that offered their times/ services for free, it does not go un noticed/ nor appreciated.

Dare I say see you again next year!!!

Warm regards and massive thank you from me and the team……..

“Ideal time to praise you guys”

 

Hi Joanna

We are settling in to our new home this weekend and I thought it would be an ideal time to praise the guys, yourself and Dean for providing us with an excellent service.

Your support and the willingness of the removal teams to tackle challenging transfers was greatly appreciated.

“They are quick, efficient and very friendly”

 

Hi Darren,

We have used this company twice, from Lancashire to Cumbria and within Cumbria. They are quick, efficient and very friendly. A very nice South African came to our home on both occasions to give us a quote. His response to every question sums up the ethos of the company……”It is not a problem.” We are currently planning a move from Cumbria to Scotland and plan to use them again.

Thoroughly recommended

Kind regards,

“Streets ahead of the competition”

 

Hi Darren,

I just wanted to give you feedback on our move.

We’ve moved house 5 times in the last 7 years, using Steele’s for 2 of those times, and I can confirm that you are streets ahead of the competition. 

Everything went like clockwork, as I knew it would, and your crew were particularly deserving of credit.  Louis and Stuart were brilliant and I will be requesting at the time that, if possible, we would like Louis and Stuart to undertake the move of our stuff out of storage and into our next home.

Thank you for everything!

Kind regards,

“Thank you very much for the excellent service”

 

Hi Darren

We used Steele’s for the first time to move home earlier this year. We needed storage for a few months whilst waiting for our new home. The removal team were punctual and nothing was too much trouble. The reception staff are efficient and courteous & respond to emails / return calls in a very timely manner. Unfortunately our son’s bed was damaged ever so slightly when we were moved in. The lads who did the move pointed this out to us and were honest about it and advised us that it would be sorted. Sure enough we received a gesture of good will discount refund on our account as a result of the damage, something which the owner sorted out personally. When things go wrong the sign of a great company is the way on which they act to put things right. Thanks very much for the excellent service we received and best wishes to everyone at Steele’s.

“Very impressed with the excellent service”

 

Hi Darren

Just wanted to say how impressed we were with the excellent service we received from everyone during our rather protracted move from Milnthorpe to the Isle of Wight.

My preconception was that Steeles were expensive and whilst it was not cheap, given amount of work and distances involved I would say it was extremely good value for money.

Special mention to the removal team, at both ends of the move. So friendly and nothing too much trouble.

Thanks again

“Best removal company we have ever had”

 

Hi Darren

I just wanted to pass my thanks to everyone at Steele’s Removals, especially Mattie and Lewis for moving us this week.

They have been superb in packing up the house, worked like trojans but were always cheerful and nothing was too much trouble. I assume they have made it back to Barrow ok but by far the best removals we’ve ever had – and we’ve moved 5 times in 11 years!

Best Regards

“I just wanted to say a heartfelt thanks”

 

Hi Darren

I just wanted to say a heartfelt thanks to Antony, Adrian, Callum, Steve, Liam and Jordan for all their hard work on what has been the hottest day for our move from New Hutton to Ravenglass. They were literally dripping with sweat but still carried on working!

Anthony, Adrian and Callum worked tirelessly yesterday packing – above and beyond what anyone could expect. They are an absolute credit to you and were a pleasure to have around at what is an extremely stressful time.

Nothing is too much trouble for any of them and they worked with great humour and patience.

I genuinely would not go anywhere other than Steele’s Removals – you completed our move to New Hutton almost 5 years ago and we were always going to come back to you. Your team are professional, friendly, hardworking and fun to have around.

Please pass on my sincere thanks to Antony and his team.

Thank you, Steele’s Removals!

Hi Darren

The delivery went really well, the guys were great and provided an outstanding service. They had to work like Trojans with the stairs here in Germany.

Please pass on my thanks to their boss.

Thank you for everything you, Nick and the team in the UK did to assist me, Laura. You really did help to elevate the stresses of moving. I am very grateful for your friendly and professional services and so relieved that my agents recommended Steeles to me.

Hi Darren

Both myself and my wife would just like to say thank you to the two chaps that moved us on the 22nd May 2018, they were on time, polite, very helpful, and nothing was too much trouble for them and they were a credit to your company, and I will fully recommend your services to all that I know.

In this time of complaints, it is far too easy to complain but no one takes the time to say positive things I do hope this goes a long way for customers to start saying thank you

“I would recommend your services to others”

 

Dear Dean

We are very appreciative of the services we have received from Steeles during our recent, very successful move.This involved not only your removals team, but also some van hire and our use of your very useful storage facility at Flookburgh.

In an unfussy, quietly competent way each member of the staff that we have had dealings with has just got it right for us each time.From the estimator being very diligent to the movers being careful, hard-working and cheerful.

Finally, the administration of bookings and invoicing undertaken by you and your colleagues in the office has been transparent, efficient and prompt.

I would use Steele’s Removals again and would recommend your services to others.

Thank you all so much.

Kindest Regards

“Thank You”

 

Hi Darren

Just a note to say thank you to you and all the guys who made Mum’s part load happen yesterday/today.

Mum is delighted to be surrounded by all her familiar things again and familiarity is so important when you have dementia as she does.

I know you’ll probably say you were all just doing your job – well just so you know just doing your job has made a huge difference to Mum!

Thanks again to you all!

Morning Dean and team,

Just wanted to e mail my gratitude and thanks over for use of a van over the weekend for our annual Christmas tree recycling.

St Mary’s is a very special place but we would not be able to carry out our vital work without kind people like yourselves who offer their continued support.

Wishing you all the best for 2018.

“We thought your team was great”

 

Dear Sir,

I just wanted to say how we thought your team was great when they moved us on 15th December, from 93 Serpentine Road to 3 Tenterfield in Kendal.

They were prompt, polite, took very good care of our possessions as well as the carpets and walls of the new property. We didn’t have to ask them to protect anything as they already had it covered. They were also keen to get everything in the right room for us: this was particularly helpful given we hadn’t managed to label everything.

I got your email address off them so i could email you directly to let you know.

Many thanks.

“We wish to express our gratitude”

 

Dear all at Steeles Removals,

We wish to express our gratitude for the money you kindly donated for a raffle prize for our Silver Anniversary Gala Dinner, held on Friday 24th November at the Castle Green Hotel. The event is our largest fundraiser helping us to raise much needed funds to continue our work supporting carers of all ages.

This year the Gala Dinner launched our 25th Anniversary Appeal to raise £25,000. This money will be used to develop a holistic suite of support services for Carers including relaxation therapies, counselling and a sitting service. The value of such support has been well-documented through our contact with Carers and its expansion will meet a growing need for Carers to whom a regular, short break makes all the difference in the world.

The feedback from the Gala Dinner has been extremely positive and we’ve raised around £10,000 after costs, a tremendous result. The raffle alone raised £1,500! Thanks to your help, we are well on our way to reaching our 25th Anniversary goal.

Best wishes for the Christmas period and thank you again for your generosity.

“Your two lads were excellent”

 

Dear Dean,

You have not requested any feedback following my removal on 5th/6th October from Bolton le Sands to Mumbles, so I should like to offer some.

Your two lads, Lee and Louis (I hope I’ve spelled their names right) were excellent, they took care of me and all my goods and safely delivered everything.  Their assistance with removal and reassembly was wonderful and having everything set up and ready to run was such a relief.  I should like you to pass on my gratitude for their unwaveringly cheerful approach and effective support while I felt in meltdown at this most stressful time.  They were true gents and worked like trojans.

Kind regards and thanks again,

“For all you have done”

 

To Darren, Gavin & Jason

To all those who carried out the removal from Windermere to Kendal, especially Darren, Gavin & Jason.

We cannot thank you all enough for your extreme hard work over these days that you carried out our removal. We where very impressed by your professional care both at our old house and new one. Your organisational skills where second to none and your positive spirit, even when soaked by the rain was impressive. We can say your whole team added to the most successful and impressively seamless move ever for us. Nothing was broken, you showed you really cared

It was definitely the most successful and impressive move ever. Nothing was damaged or broken.  They treated everything we had with great respect.

We will definitely recommend Steeles Removals to everyone we know

“Most successful & impressive move ever”

 

To Darren & The Lads

I wanted to thank all the team, who were responsible for the most perfect house removal.  Their energy and care were second to none.  They carried out the whole organisation, packing and unpacking with enthusiasm, even though at times they were thoroughly wet through.  This did not dent their spirits.

It was definitely the most successful and impressive move ever. Nothing was damaged or broken.  They treated everything we had with great respect.

We will definitely be recommending Steeles Removals to all our friends and colleagues.

Thank you so much.

On the 26th May I moved from Green Hollows Country Park Carlisle to Askam-in-Furness, I have moved quite a lot over the years and I can honestly say your two lads that helped me move were the best I have ever had.They were polite, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. I would like to say thank you to them for giving me a stress free move.

“Polite and Helpful”

 

 

For me there is no removal company except STEELES. Over the last 20+years whenever we have needed anything from a single item to the entire contents of a large house moving we have turned to Steeles. We have also us your storage service. Your removal men work like Trojans- swiftly (I feel tired just watching them), but they are always careful and we have never had anything damaged. Your men are invariably clean, well turned out and cheerful. Office staff too are always polite and helpful. If they promise to get back in touch, they do. Other businesses could learn a lot from your organisation. Your company owner is a VERY fortunate person to have such an outstanding team.

“Smooth and Easy”

 

 

We’d just like to say a big thank you to you for your help with our removal earlier this month.Without the team we had on Monday and again on the Tuesday for the actual removal, it certainly wouldn’t have been as smooth and easy. In Particular please will you thank Dave, Keith and Matthew for their help. They had a lot to contend with on the Tuesday between builders and painters, and we do apologise if it made the job extra difficult, not to mention two flights of stairs.

Again thank you for your help.
