We were very impressed with the service provided by Groves from start to finish. Everyone we dealt with was friendly and efficient and our move went very smoothly as a result. We would thoroughly recommend their services to anyone.

We engaged D C Groves & Son to assist with our move from Kent to Lincolnshire. Much of the stuff was packed by us, so it was primarily a case of collection, placing into the lorry, transporting to Lincolnshire and delivering it to our new property. D C Groves had previously attended our property to assess requirements, and provide a quote. This was very competitive and accepted. We were then kept regularly informed regarding the move date, and time we could expect them. They arrived on time, and proceeded to load the lorry. There were two guys and they were charming. Loaded the lorry meticulously, taking every care required. Items that had not been packed by us were put into protective coverings, and great care taken. On the day of delivery to our new house, they telephoned to advise arrival time, and were very prompt. They were again extremely efficient. We cannot praise the service we received more. It was excellent. We would highly recommend this company.

D C Groves and Son provided an excellent service helping us moved house. The removal staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. They took great care with everything and worked so hard but were very thoughtful and polite. Moving is stressful but DC Groves and Son helped reduce the worry. They were also very competitively priced compared to other quotes. I would thoroughly recommend this firm.

Outstanding in every way!

What an outstanding company! Our move took place over six days, shifting a total of 5,500 cubic metres (twenty of Groves’ wooden containers) into store on some of the hottest days this year. Anthony and his crew had such an incredible can-do attitude, always finding a way to solve every challenge. The move from store to our new home, several hundred miles away, was accomplished over another six separate days; this time Groves had to negotiate winding lanes, tight turns and torrential rain. Still their lorries got through and the unloading was performed with great care, good humour and in complete safety, respecting all Covid-19 precautions. What makes Groves outstanding is their consistent and reassuring communication and how they accommodated our ever-changing completion date. First class in every way!

Even prior to the move, it was clear that we were in safe hands with friendly guidance and advice. During the move, the team were highly professional and hardworking. Very aware of the need to comply with Covid-19 guidelines, they wore masks and even in the 34 degrees, they worked on, with no complaints about the heat. Everything was moved with great care and attention. Well done and thank you to everyone! I would not hesitate to recommend Groves.

D. C. Groves (Tenterden Removals) moved all my possessions out of my house in East Sussex 18 months ago and have stored it until Monday when it was delivered to me in my new house in Dorset. They have been very pleasant to work with. The removers themselves were amazingly efficient - no scratched doors or furniture - and all done very quickly. Now I am unpacking things, I can see how well they have been packed and stored. I can certainly recommend this firm

Groves moved us from Sissinghurst to Lewes and were excellent in every way. From their initial advice to the actual move, all the staff were efficient, friendly and polite. The men who carried out the move were wonderful and did a brilliant job. Thank you Groves!

Anthony and his team did an excellent job of moving us from a 3 bedroom house to a smaller bungalow, we hadn’t moved for 25 years so it was quite a challenge with so much stuff and not to mention all the pot plants. They were very professional and good humoured. Very helpful team and so glad I opted for the packing of breakables option - really took the stress out of moving. Thoroughly recommended.

Stormy winds, lashing rain - and still D.C.Groves did a fabulous job!

At first sight, asking D.C.Groves to move us from our old house into a new apartment might not seem challenging - the two properties were barely 100 yards apart! However, on the day of our move a storm hit the UK, and Anthony Groves and his team had to contend with howling winds and lashing rain. Deeply unpleasant... Despite this, they carried out the move with consummate professionalism, and - remarkably - great good humour. All aspects of their work were highly satisfactory, but we were particularly grateful for their care in packing up our collection of wine glasses - not one was broken. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending D.C.Groves for removals. Professionalism of the highest order.
