1st Choice International Removals and Storage

1st Choice Removals is a one stop shop for all your removals needs. A friendly family business with 30 years’ experience, moving house is no longer a chore. All your stress is alleviated by our professional and courteous team of uniformed staff who can take care of the packing, removal, delivery and unloading of all your goods. Whether you’re moving a single item, or it’s a full house removal, you’ll be getting the best service from the best removal crew.

A complete door to door service is what you get.

Neither do you have to worry about arranging storage as we have secure storage facilities available for long and short term periods. Our removals are fully insured, just as you would expect from a professional removal company, and we can assure you of the best possible service, a statement reinforced by our membership to "The British Association of Removers”, which required us to go through rigorous tests in order to maintain membership. We don't employ casual staff. All of our employees take pride in their work - so you know you'll be getting an expert service.

We have a 3 step process to guarantee a successful house removal.

1. Planning

We offer a free survey and consultation prior to your move. This allows our removals consultant to review your specifications and consider which of our services would be required so we can personalise your move to your needs. It also gives us opportunity to identify any potential issues to ensure the move runs smoothly from start to finish.  

2. Preparation and packing

Our skilled packers can provide as much or as little help with your packing as you want, whether it’s a full house pack, a delicate and fragile pack or a self-pack. All your belongings will be treated with integrity and respect.

If you select the self-pack we can supply you with quality, industry standard packaging materials.

3. Loading, transportation and unpacking

Our staff are experienced and professional, making you feel at ease on what could be a stressful day, arriving with all the necessary lifting equipment, protective materials and a purpose built removals vehicle. Our customers often request the same removals crew every time they move – demonstrating the personal and friendly approach we bring to our moves.

If you make us your 1st choice, you will have made the right choice. 

We guarantee not to let you down!

They were really helpful. Turned up when they said they would. Were very helpful. Worked their socks off and were very careful. I was really pleased with the care and the service. They only blinked once at the drive entrance! great teams..I met three teams and moved over a week and they were all brilliant. One picture glass broken on such a big move was nothing at all...

Paul and Byron were great moving us out of Fordingbridge and into Ludlow. They were friendly, helpful and reassuring. The only small complaint we had was over the delivery and calculation of number of boxes, but in terms of the actual removal the guys were brilliant.

Very friendly and accommodating over the phone. Allowed us to help move and load items from 2nd floor flat to the lorry to reduce the time it would have taken the 2 men alone. Saved us money in the end.
The removal men themselves were friendly and didn't slack off - it was a physically demanding job. They did turn up about half hour late which meant they couldn't park outside the building but other than that I couldn't be happier with the service I received - would definitely recommend!

1st choice were excellent throughout. We had issues with our house move being postponed at the last minute, with them already having loaded 3/4 of our stuff into the lorry and they were extremely accommodating with unloading our stuff, rearranging for the new date and ultimately moving us.
I would wholeheartedly recommend them.
