About

Since 1928 Hadley & Ottaway has been a household name for removals, and in particular removals in Norwich. With 90 years experience, carrying out careful shipping, removals and storage services for some of the most discerning clients. No job is too big or too small for our team of expert removals staff.

At Hadley & Ottaway, everyone cares about your move. Many of the removals and office staff have been with the company for years and really understand just how important it is for removal companies to make sure that everything goes smoothly with your relocation. Our experience means that we can make moving home or office as seamless as possible, relieving you of any stress or worry during the moving period.

Our head office is based in the East Anglia region - this is the centre of operations as there is a dedicated training room, where new recruits and 'old hands' learn to pack delicate porcelain, barometers, grandfather clocks and pianos.

We were certainly not looking forward to leaving our very personal, unique, family home of 40 years, and dreading the experience. However, the Hadley & Ottaway team made what could have been a 'disaster day' into a much less stressful time than I could have ever imagined. They worked extremely well as a team, providing full support, advice and guidance as the day progressed. Their lively banter between the team members, and with ourselves, made it a much better experience and lifted our spirits immensely. Even when everything was loaded and we received bad news from our solicitors that clearance was still awaited to commence moving in to our new property the team provided support and, once given the go ahead, upped their 'team spirit, speed and efficiency' even more ensuring that we ended the day knowing it had been successful and had a bed to sleep in!! Many thanks to our team!!

They turned up on time and started the job of packing in a professional way. They were very helpful and friendly in all they did. They took a lot of the stress out of the day. At the other end they did not mind having to wait for me to get the keys. I recommend them to anybody moving home. The price they charged was less than I thought it might be.

Arrived on time as arranged. The 4 chaps who packed all our belongings were very efficient and could not have been more helpful. The move went very smoothly and we were safely installed in our new home by early in the afternoon. Grateful thanks to Hadley & Ottaway Ltd.

The two movers packed up for us and then completed our move the next day. We were amazed at their skill and the professionalism they showed, while at the same time being friendly and approachable. I would thoroughly recommend the firm to anyone contemplating a move.

The guys from Hadley & Ottaway moved our belongings from Papworth Everard to Witney as agreed. They turned up bang on time and got down to loading up right away. Everything went as promised and we were on our way in 2 hours from arrival. The guys worked impressively hard and took great care to ensure that our furniture etc was properly taken care of. They were helpful all the way throughout and we couldn't have wished for a better bunch. The same at the other end when unloading in Witney. Just a really good hassle free experience and not expensive either. They made us feel comfortable from start to finish. We highly recommend them and wish to thank them for making the day as uncomplicated as possible. Just goes to show you get what you pay for. Smartly dressed, pleasant and friendly and very efficient. What else is there to say? If you are looking for a brilliant removal company this is the one to go for

We have moved on several occasions and have experienced extremely poor service from British Association of Removals firms in the past. This was by far the best removable company we have ever used. Courteous, professional and a personal service we just can't fault. Would highly recommend.
