    Amazing service!! Without James and his team, my move probably wouldn't have happened. They got me out of a tight spot at really short notice thanks to solicitors not exchanging contracts until 4 days before my move Extremely professional set up from the minute they arrived, throughout the whole day up until they left. They took great care with my furniture and other possessions and so skilled In getting everything into my brand new build property without causing any damage. I would recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone needed a professional, reliable and caring removals firm at a very reasonable price. For anyone moving in and around Staffordshire Moving Circles are the 👌

    James & team recently helped us move house - we cannot fault the service and would highly recommend. James was really professional from the outset and also very flexible when our completion date kept moving around (unlike many other removal companies). The team that turned up on the day to support the move was also great - efficient and worked really hard throughout the move day. Moving Circles was also highly competitive in their pricing. Thank you Moving Circles - would definitely work with your team again in future!
