Recent Removals News in the Portsmouth Area

Shift It Removals were recently contracted by Portsmouth City Council to relocate the entire contents of the council's musical library, held at one school and relocate it to storage. This consisted of about 600 musical instruments of every shape, size and cost and called for careful loading and unloading. With all of our staff being CRB checked we had no problems in taking work in schools.

Shift It Removals are always prepared to go the extra mile as was demonstrated recently when two of our porters were requested to negotiate the removal of a sofa bed (always heavy and tricky) down a fire escape at the back of a block of flats in Portchester. After a careful assessment of health and safety issues it was decided that this could be accomplished safely and it was a job completed I am pleased to say within 1 hour which included delivery to the new flat!

Last minute moves seem to be 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.

We have been busy recently undertaking office moves for local companies. These moves can always be difficult and require good planning to minimise the down time of a busy office. Shift It Removals therefore offer office moves overnight or at weekends to ensure that your business suffers as a little disruption as possible. We provide a full PC packing service if required and we dismantle desks and other furniture where required, assembling it again at the other end to ease the pressure on you. With today's health and safety issues just bringing in a specialist company so that your staff do not have to get involved can take a great deal of pressure away from office managers.

We recently moved a French couple from their flat in Portsmouth back to their house in France. In order to comply with the customer's requirements we loaded the lorry at six o'clock on a Sunday night, took the Monday morning ferry, unloaded by three o'clock and then returned on the Monday night overnight ferry back to Portsmouth. The whole operation was completed within 36 hours which was hardly enough time to buy cakes but the customer was happy and had their belongings collected and delivered to meet their exact requirements.


Mr Smale, Phil,
Just wanted to let you know what an extremely efficient removal service that you gave to my daughter, Karena. From start to finish every aspect of that day went smoothly and I would have no hesitation in giving your details to anybody wishing to use a removal company. Your staff were polite and most helpful in what could have been a traumatic experience and as Karena only expects to be at her address for a year you will be the first person she will be contacting when she moves to a larger premise. By which time she should have learnt to count stairs. Again many thanks and hope you continue to give the service that we received.

Great value for money - really nice members of the team who helped me move and really took care of my belongings - would totally recommend you - thanks!

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
Phil Smith, [09/09/2013]
