Customer Reviews

''I discovered Houghton Move very last minute, luckily they were available at short notice and were extremely helpful and a reasonable price compared to other competitors. We were so impressed by the team, they worked extremely hard and didn't stop on a very hot day. I can safely say we did not pack for the move lightly but they were not phased. We have 2 young children who they happily involved with the move and made the whole experience as enjoyable as it could be. Would HIGHLY recommend Houghton Moves. Couldn't fault a thing!''
''Can’t thank you enough for making a stressful situation run smoothly and quickly. You were both friendly and kind with genuine smiles even after climbing all those stairs. Will recommend you to all my friends and family and think my son wants a job with you in a few year lol. Thanks again 😁''

''What a fantastic service. Houghton moved our elderly mother from the family home of 50 years with great sensitivity and efficiency. Made the whole process so much easier. Great price as well, and so all round excellent - a big thank you to Alec and the team.''
