We were very pleased with Barleycorn Removals. They were reliable, helped out when my husband broke his arm and continued with the packing at short notice. The staff were cheerful and willing to help and we would definitely use them again. We also used their storage and they made our two moves stress free.

Absolutely amazing team of movers, best I have ever come across (and I've moved several times!). Chris really knows his stuff, and his various teams of packers and movers are outstanding. All of them were polite, friendly, professional and organised. All our items were carefully packed and loaded onto the van, and on the other side they took the time to make sure all boxes and items were where we wanted them (rather than a dump and run). Even better they were great value. Honestly, if you can, use these guys, you won't be disappointed.

We used Barleycorn to move us from a larger house to a smaller house, which requires work in the future. This meant that our furniture and possessions had to go in three directions - to the new house immediately, into storage for later transfer to the new house , into separate storage for transfer to another location. Chris Cox, the head of the company, visited, explained the best way to do this and prepared quotes. Barleycorn arranged not only the move but the storage and all of this calmly, courteously, very efficiently and with good humour. Dean and his team packed and removed everything going into storage on Day 1. On Day 2 they came back and moved us and remaining furniture into our new house. They were very responsive to all requests to mark up boxes etc and also taking things to the right room in the new house. More valuable and delicate possessions and furniture were properly packed and protected. Emails and phone calls were always answered promptly We feel we had a very personal service and thoroughly recommend this removal company

Pre-sales were friendly and fitted us in during the busy end-of-stamp duty time. They were incredibly good value. They clearly quoted on what we needed & explained what was and wasn’t included. The moving guys were incredible. Strong, fast and respectful. Thanks a lot.

We chose Barleycorn having received quotes from several companies since they were competitively priced and came across as knowledgeable and experienced. We were moving from Ascot into storage, to then be delivered to Broadstairs in Kent once the new house was available. Chris and his team were brilliant to deal with, everything ran like clockwork. They are a super-professional outfit, very careful with your house and possessions, and incredibly quick and efficient in moving everything. We wanted to pack ourselves, so they included a good range of boxes & packing material in the quote. They took apart the big furniture and reassembled the other end. They were careful to make sure everything was where we wanted, and nothing was lost or damaged in the extended process. The team were amazing in manoeuvring furniture through stairs and doorways that I didn’t think would be possible. On top of all that they were all very friendly and helpful. We really couldn't have asked for more and highly recommend them to anyone moving house, they really took the stress out of it. First-class business and service.

Barleycorn impressed us from beginning to end, putting us at ease at the time of quotation and seeing the job through to the end. Chris was amazing and the team were experienced, polite and good-humoured despite terrible weather and awful traffic. We were called Sir/Madam all day and didn’t hear even one swear word from any of the crew. Sounds silly, but this was brilliant for my children and we all felt safe and looked after during what was otherwise a lot of upheavals. The team respected our property and our belongings and went above and beyond to take care with our move. The packing service was super efficient too and I can’t recommend them highly enough.

We thoroughly recommend Chris and his team at Barleycorn. They were highly professional, efficient and courteous and it was a pleasure having them around. Nothing was too much trouble and the whole process, from first contact to completion of the move was stress free.

The best removal company I have ever used...

I can honestly say that using Barleycorn removals for my recent move was the best decision we could have made. I have moved many times in my adult life - internationally and within the UK and can honestly, without a doubt, say that Barleycorn are the most thorough, professional and trustworthy removals company I have ever used. We moved our family from our 4 bed house to a larger property during the most recent Covid lockdown. Barleycorn were sensitive to the need to keep their distance, whilst ensuring that our move was as efficient and timely as possible. Every employee was friendly, competent and a true professional. From quote stage through to completion of the move, every communication was stress-free. There was never a question in my mind that they wouldn't treat either our old or our new home with the utmost of respect. We didn't incur a single breakage, scuffed wall or lost item. Our entire move was conducted in a timely, pleasant manner. Once we'd managed to empty some boxes, Chris and the team even came back to take the cardboard away (we are very local for them). In short, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Chris and the team at Barleycorn. They're not the cheapest company (because they are realistic about the amount of people needed and the packaging items you require), but they are without a doubt one of the best removals companies you will find.

Chris and his team provided a highly professional and conscientious service and were a pleasure to spend time with in what turned into a 2 day job with one person returning for a third day to finish off, due to unforeseen difficulties fitting furniture in our new home. They took good care of our properties - old & new. And when a previous house sale and purchase fell through Chris was flexible and understanding with various plan changes and a cancellation. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
