Their expertise, professionalism, and customer-centric approach make them the best in the business. Moving house can be daunting, but with Excalibur, you can rest assured that you’re in safe hands.

At the day of the moving, the team pick/put our items very quickly and kindly, so we had no stress.If we move to Bristol again, definitely we will ask them.

    Couldn't be happier with Andy & Dan. They took great care and ensured everything was left in the right place. I was particularly impressed that they managed to move some particularly heavy pots. They were kind, thoughtful and we would definitely use them again.

    I called Andy at a time of crisis. We had been let down by a local company with days to go to our move. We had also had another quote from a Bristol company who knowing how desperate we were tried to rip us off.Andy who was away on holiday at the time answered our call, gave us a probable price which he stuck to and moved a job around in order to fit our move in. On the day he turned up with Dan and a nicer hard working pair you couldn’t wish to meet. They both worked so hard for two days. Nothing was too much trouble and they seemed to look after our property as if it was there’s. Great guys who I would recommend to anyone and I would definitely use again…. But not for a while I hope.Thanks both.

    I called Andy a few days before my move in panic as I had been let down by someone referred to me. He immediately reassured me and found a good time for me to complete the move. He arrived exactly on time on the day and to say that his expertise and skills are top notch is doing him and his colleague (Dan) a disservice. They moved my stuff so quickly, efficiently and safely I was genuinely dumbfounded. It was professional, swift and incredibly efficient. I would not hesitate to recommend Andy and Excalibur Removals to anyone in any situation.

    Highly Recommend Andy & his team. Polite, friendly and knowledgeable in all areas of removals. Provided clear quotes for two differing scenarios. Showed flexibility and had great communication when we required storage of our belongings between our move at short notice. Showed our homes respect on each occasion and efficient in their work. Made a stressful move much more relaxing. Use of appropriate humour during the moves added to the service. Easily 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Andy and the team provide an outstanding service. Communication is importantly prompt and concise. Having compared a number of local providers and having used their service from a value and quality perspective they are A1! They are great people who are so at ease and can always crack a smile which goes a long way with what is always a stressful time. Would highly recommend.

Really good price.They’re really friendly and made me feel at ease, because I was in over my head.Arrived exactly when they said they would on the day.Had me packed up in a matter of hours, and deposited the other end. They even went out of their way to move something to a different house.Friendly and professional the whole way through.

    WOW, the best service ever!!!The guys were very professional & efficient! Our furniture was treated so well, all wrapped in covers. Andy & his team worked well together & were very fast & careful ... they even considered that the weather was rainy/muddy and covered the cream carpets with blanket coverings so no marks were left behind.Pricing was the best out of 3 different quotes, very reasonable & worth every penny!!We will definitely use them again & will most definitely recommend them to anyone needing a removal company.Mandy & Glynn

    I chose Excalibur Removals out of a number of removal companies because their quote was competitive and insurance was included, not a chargeable extra.It was also pleasing to be able to support a local family run business.I made use of their packing service which was excellent, done in a morning, whereas the job would have taken me several days.The move itself was done efficiently and carefully with staff good humoured and helpful all the time.I would have no hesitation in recommending Excalibur Removals to anyone

    Hiring Andy gives us peace of mind knowing they will take care of our moving professionally and leave us nothing to worry about. It’s money well spent. Our flat has lift but can’t use one to move furniture, so Andy and team needed to back and forth for hours but always with smile (and sweat of course!) never i heard them grumpy, they also very careful with our things. I am thankful for them and i highly recommended them for anyone in Bristol looking for a reliable moving company that gives you a piece of mind.

    Andy and his team have been amazing throughout my recent move. They removed everything from my old home, placed in storage then moved everything out of storage and into my new home. Every interaction with Andy (phone, email, in person) was positive - he quickly answered all of my queries, explained how the process would work and made sure that I was comfortable with everything.On both the moving out and the moving in days - Andy and his team (Matt and Dan) were incredibly quick and well organised, professional, warm, friendly and caring. They made sure that I was happy with everything before they left. I highly recommend them!

    Highly recommended. Andy and his team worked quickly and efficiently to move our effects with care in Bristol. Andy and his team were on time, polite and good humoured and were always keen to check where we would like our items placed on unloading. There were also patient and helpful when we were delayed unloading due to a late handover of keys. Give these guys a call if you want a removal company who gets the job done professionally. A*

    Highly recommended. Excalibur are professional, friendly, and with great communication throughout the whole process. The move went very smoothly and they had us moved out and in to our new home very quickly. They have years of experience and it shows. The price was also very competitive. Thanks Andy and team!

    Brilliant removal company! I've already recommended to friends. Really reasonably priced and all-round trustworthy and efficient guys. Andy came out to quote and packed up our belongings making our house move that much less stressful.They were friendly, on-time, reliable and quick! All of our belongings were unpacked in our new home in great condition. Breakables were wrapped very carefully. Nothing was too much trouble for them.Great communication about timings and how the move would work. Although there wasn't much notice with our moving date, Andy made it work around the jobs they already had on.I'd 100% use this company again and recommend to anyone who wants a stress-free move. It was worth every penny!

    The service from Andy and Excalibur has been phenomenal. We have now used them twice. The first time, we had very short notice, and through great communication and back and forth, Andy found a way to make the date work. It felt like a genuine commitment to making things work. Punctual, communicative, supportive throughout. We were impressed. So we booked the next part of the move for three months later, and once again Excalibur were amazing.The way our items were taken care of was great. We would definitely use them again without hesitating.I cannot recommend highly enough if you are looking for support with a house move and want to see your move carefully managed and your belongings care-taken.
