“Nothing was too much trouble”

We just thought that we would like to acknowledge how fantastic the service from Allied Pickfords has been so far.
Right from the moment Carla and Jimmy walked in the door yesterday we knew were in good hands. Nothing was too much trouble as they quickly and efficiently went about packing up our family home of 36 years. All of our belongings of all shapes & sizes were loaded into the container with the ease of professionals.
