First impressions do count. During the survey I was very impressed by how well the house was looked over. And up front, I was told that the quote will stand whatever else may arise, because if anything had been missed, it would have been the surveyors fault. The company supplied all the boxes and packing materials I required at no extra charge which included two sizes of packing boxes and also wardrobe boxes as well. The team that moved me were very good and considerate for my partner who was feeling particularly unwell the day we were being packed up. During the uplift and the move in, not a single item was damaged and not a mark was made on the walls. Delicate or fragile items were individually wrapped and extraordinary care was taken when moving them. I had applied for three quotes, I would not say that money was no object but I like to go for the very best I can afford. As it happened, J&J Howe were not only the least expensive but in my opinion the best.

We were moving 353 miles north, the firm were friendly and helpful with my questions. They asked if we needed any packing doing; we chose to pack ourselves. They kept us informed of when they were coming and when they would arrive at the final destination. Team were courteous and helpful.

We moved from Blairgowrie to Rosyth; this was a complete house move from a3 bed semi-detached villa to a 3 floor mid-terrace townhouse. The movers arrived punctually and started work immediately. They were very hard-working and continued tirelessly. They had well-earned breaks but kept to the times they stated. At the new house nothing chanted, the work-rate was impressive and not a thing was even slightly damaged. There were awkward angles and plenty of stairs but the team just soaked it up and got the job done. I Would not hesitate to use howe''s again.
From the start the service has been excellent. The supplier came round for an initial walk thro and to discuss the requirements for the move which was to be over 2 days. The quote was provided promptly and accepted.
The day of the move the 2 guys were extremely polite and very hard working. After packing up they had a 4 hour drive and had to stop overnight in town. The next morning they arrived early and started to unpack. It wasn't easy for them as the driveway is uphill. They worked incredible hard to unload but were also very careful and respectful of our property.
We cant fault the service and would highly recommend them."

Particularly the pre survey service conversation around insurance, unlike other companies who included insurance as standard in their quotes with no conversation, J & J Howe suggested I check my home insurance policy which I did and I had cover. That small conversation saved me £80. In context I pay £140 for a full years insurance, can’t help feel the insurance being quoted by removal companies are grossly inflated by commission, perhaps it’s the next PPI scandal, maybe not on the same scale!
Great honest company."

From the initial phone call right up to the move every single member of the team that I was in contact with was helpful, friendly, kind and reassuring. The company is run efficiently and I would not hesitate to recommend their services.
On the day of removal the guys turned up on time and had all of my belongings loaded on the van before half 11. That includes dismantling beds!! Then I was moved into my new place by early afternoon as some guys who were held up on another job came and helped out instead of sitting idle. Cannot praise the guys enough. Just wish I could remember their names to be able to put them on this review. As a single mum to 3 I was very nervous about this move and they did all they could to put my mind at ease. Really a great bunch of guys."

"After a rather traumatic experience on a previous 'house move' with a large, well known removal firm, we were rather nervous about choosing one for our latest move. We decided to try a smaller firm, J&J Howe, and didn't have any regrets. From start to finish we and our house furnishings were treated with respect. Everything ran smoothly from the arrival of the van for the collection, to the delivery of our belongings at the other end. The men we were allocated worked well as a team and were also friendly and very helpful. We would highly recommend this company and would happily use them again."
