    5 star review  Contacted this firm after the BHF declined my settee. Clear, courteous service, they came in 2 days. Specified a narrow time window and contacted me about 40 minutes before to confirm. Excellent, reliable and very nice. I highly recommend them.

    5 star review  Professional and friendly service. Disposal of some bulky household items was made very easy - a quick response to my original query, and the collection was made at a time that suited me with a call in advance to let me know they were on the way. Even the awkward stairs to my property were no obstacle for them. Recommended.
