We wanted to say a very big thank you to all at Schofield Removals who helped to make our moving day “Stress Free!” We would happily recommend you to others.

PAUL & JO BARTHOLOMEW - 2014 / COLCHESTER, ESSEX

Elspeth and I just wanted to thank you and all your team for looking after collecting together of our furniture etc and its removal to France.

You certainly made our lives easy and we could not have asked for a better delivery crew.

JOHN HUTCHINSON - 2013 / GT WIGBOROUGH, ESSEX

Just a short note to thank you for all your thoughtfulness and kindness shown to us last Monday on our move bearing in mind the atrocious day and my husband not feeling too well. You and Kevin, your assistant, were both fantastic, and we would highly recommend your firm as the highest quality.

PETE & DOT SMITH - 2015 / WEST MERSEA, ESSEX

We were very happy with the way everything was dealt with. All of the men were marvelous, willing, helpful, very professional. Everything seemed to go so smoothly. They seemed to know just where everything should go. They all seemed so experienced, calm and worked so hard. I have told everybody I know how wonderful the team was.

MR & MRS CARMAN - 2015 / COLCHESTER, ESSEX

I rarely write to acknowledge good service, but I am compelled to do so today.The service that you provided was superior in every respect. The team on our move were courteous, hardworking, efficient and very accommodating. You were not the most expensive bid for the removal contract, which helped our decision to use you, but that would not have been detectable from the quality of service provided to us. I will have no hesitation recommending you to anyone in future.

Thank you. Please keep up the good work, you are a credit to your industry.

MARTIN OVERTON - 2016 / GREAT WIGBOROUGH, ESSEX

I wanted to thank you all very much for the wonderfully professional and expert move you did for me – I felt complete confidence in you and was even able to be relatively relaxed!

JULIET BULLIMORE - 2016 / WESTLETON SUFFOLK

We had to write your firm a note of thanks to say how very pleased we both were with our ‘move’ from Stratford to Bury St Edmunds.
Your men were so helpful and polite and this made it all so much easier for us. We were so lucky with the fine weather in Stratford and Bury St Eds!! It poured with rain on the journey in between!!

Thanks to you all for your help and great service.

COLIN & EVE BURROWS - 2017 / BURY ST EDMUNDS

On the day of the move, the skill and care shown by Kevin and Luke and Darren with our furniture is also worthy of mention. Kevin has remarkable spatial awareness that got an impossibly large chest of drawers down an awkward small staircase. Watching them work as a team was very impressive. Darren’s packing of our precious china was very careful and my wife was impressed by the quality of the packing materials.

It is this kind of service that makes it a delight to recommend your services to anyone.

ALEX OLDMAN - 2014 / IPSWICH, SUFFOLK

My first task this morning must be to express the grateful thanks of my wife and I for the excellent service you and your team provided on Tuesday and Wednesday last for our removal from Gosfield Hall to Sudbury. The team were extremely helpful throughout and nothing seemed too much trouble for them, they were a real credit to your firm and no doubt one of the reasons why you are so highly regarded in the trade.

K.E. JARVIS - 2010 / SUDBURY, SUFFOLK

To all the gentlemen involved in “moving” Halstead Hospital. You did a fantastic job!

SISTER WHYBROW AND ALL STAFF - 1998 / HALSTEAD HOSPITAL

I would just like to thank both yourself and the guys for the wonderful move that took place last Tuesday.

Given that we have 500 removal clients on our books I think you should feel a large degree of pride in your business given that we chose you to complete the move on our behalf. It was obvious to me during the move that your staff are proud to work for a well known traditional remover and this is obviously one of the reasons you have managed to maintain a completely claims free existence for the last three years.

I would be happy for you to show this letter to any third party in confirmation of your current claims experience.

GREG WILDMAN, COMMERCIAL ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE - 2008 / BASIL FRY & COMPANY

Thank you very much for helping with our move from Gosbecks Road to Holton St Mary. Your staff were incredibly helpful and flexible, and we very much appreciate their efforts.

ROSS COWIE, COMPANY SECRETARY - 2011 / LAY & WHEELER, WINE MERCHANTS

You moved a quantity of furniture and equipment from Severalls and Clacton Hospitals to West Avenue, Clacton, and as the day went so well I feel I would like to thank you very much for your trouble in making excellent arrangements to suit our various requirements. Your staff were very good natured and made no fuss; they just got on with the job in hand and were extremely helpful.

ELAINE BARRITT, ADMIN, COORDINATOR MENTAL HEALTH UNIT - 1996 / NORTH EAST ESSEX HEALTH AUTHORITY

Just a quick note to advise you that all the goods that you and your team so carefully shipped out to me arrived safely at my home yesterday. There were no breakages and all items were brilliantly packed. Once again a big thank you and should the occasion ever arise again rest assured I will definitely contact you.

VAL MCNAMARA - 1998 / S YUNDERUP, AUSTRALIA

It was a real pleasure to have dealt with you over the years, and I am hoping someone we know will soon be moving so that I can tell them how wonderful you were. We have now unpacked most of the stuff, and happy to say nothing got lost or broken. Everything was so beautifully packed, and was so clearly marked. We are truly grateful.

SYLVIA RAPHAEL - 2004 / ST LAURENT LA VILLE, FRANCE

Firstly I would like to apologise for calling you at 1a.m. English time – I thought I was calling your office. I just wanted to thank you for the way that you shipped my great grandfather’s clock to the U.S. It arrived in perfect condition and it means the world to me to have it part of my history here.

I just really wanted to thank you for your excellent service, professional care of my family’s heirloom.

DAVID LANFRIEGE - 2001 / UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Just a short letter of thanks for the services of Schofield’s in our move to France.

Your staff were really excellent and completed both the loading in the UK and the delivery here at Le Châtelier with such energy, efficiency and good humour.

We were delighted with how quickly they were able to complete the unloading, everything in its place, nothing broken and such a delightful team of fellows.

It has made the upheaval of not only moving house but also changing country so much easier for us ans we thank you for the excellent service your company has provided and shall have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends and aquaintances.

Again, many thanks for your services.

ANN & RAY MARTIN - 2005 / LE CHÂTELIER, FRANCE
