Fantastic service from them when moving my father in law. Friendly local service that you very rarely get nowadays.
Would highly recommend them.

Paul Montgomery | 26th February 2020

Always use these guys.. they go the extra mile to help your move go smoother! Highly recommended them.

Dan Wilkinson | 26th February 2020

I would like to thank Rob and his colleagues from Luckes and Son removals for their excellent service and particularly for making light of the potential access problems. I would recommend them without hesitation

Derek Pearson | 24th October 2017

Thank you for making our move stress and incident free. The team were amazing – professional, polite and fun. Our belongings were treated with great care and not a single item was damaged or broken. I’d recommend Luckes & Son to anyone who needs a removals company.

Mrs Jefferies | 18th April 2017

Professional, efficient, quick, polite – what more can I say?

Jenny Jones | 21st January 2016

Professional, efficient and polite are only some of the words I would use to describe John, John and Fred. My husband and I had already had a stressful time packing up all our belongings and were dreading moving day. But on moving day, John, John and Fred arrived and immediately, the atmosphere changed. The efficient way in which they went about their work was truly impressive and put us both at ease. They made it look so easy. They treated our belongings with great care and respect. John, John and Fred made what could have been a very stressful day enjoyable. I would recommend this removals company to anyone without hesitation. Thank you guys!

C and S Hill | 18th January 2016

Very helpful and efficient from start to finish. From dealing with Alex and Wendy pre removal day, who were always on hand for any queries, right through to on the day with Fred and the two Johns who ran the show like clockwork. Very careful with all our furniture and good entertainment as a comedy trio throughout the day!

Andi Holbook | 18th January 2016

The efficiency, care and help of John, Fred and Mark cannot be over emphasised. Every challenge that appeared during a stressful day was overcome calmly with a positive mindset. I strongly recommend Luckes Removals and Storage and, whilst I have no plans to move again, I would immediately call this company if the situation changed. Thanks again to John, Fred, Mark and the Team in the office for making the move as ‘enjoyable’ as possible.

David & Marjorie T. | 22nd December 2015

Faultless! I was dreading the move and these guys made it seem like a breeze. I can’t thank them enough for making a stressful time so enjoyable. Thanks everyone. You were amazing.

Gifty Tawiah | 19th December 2015

We were very impressed by the hard work of the Luckes staff, especially Fred, John and John. These three guys are worth their weight in gold. Nothing is too much for them. The office staff were also a pleasure to deal with, pleasant and flexible in their attitude. Ours wasn’t a straightforward move and I felt Luckes coped particularly well with the various elements of it. They were also very helpful with dates.

There were just two negatives which cause me to knock a star off. First, whilst the staff who did the packing worked hard they mostly weren’t the core team and this showed when we came to unpack. There was an absence of care, with items just shoved in boxes anyhow. Not good enough, considering what we paid. I was also surprised we were only allocated two men for the moving into our new house of the heaviest of the furniture.

So a good experience generally – but I wouldn’t ask them to do the packing again.

J M Bates | 15th December 2015

I completely agree with the reviews above. This is a professional, helpful and generally friendly company. They took the stress out of moving, were patient and supportive with our inexperience and a company we will definitely recommend to family and friends. Great service all round!

Kathryn C | 15th December 2015

I have used Luckes twice in the last couple of months and can’t speak highly enough. The first time they packed and moved us. The did a sterling job, carefully packed everything for us and labelled the boxes so had no issues finding things. The second time they just moved us, but a great service! The team are all so helpful, polite and careful! A pleasure to have around on a stressful day. I would highly recommend the Luckes team to anyone.

Beth R | 23rd November 2015

What a fantastic company. From start to finish Luke’s & Son gave a first rate service and were very accommodating when our completion date slipped. On the day, Fred, John and Jordan were a great team who made the stress of moving all but vanish, meaning I could keep them supplied with tea. We won’t hesitate to recommend A. Luckes & Sons to friends and family and although we’re not planning on moving ever again… If we do, there’s no question who we’d use!

Sue French & Mike Land | 5th November 2015

Very efficient and friendly. It is very hard to move the furnitures from ground floor to fifth floor in the apartment block (NO lift service). The removal men have no complaints and enjoy their cup of tea as reward. I have recommended them to my colleagues whenever they require removal to new address.

CS Wong | 28th September 2015

I was very pleased with the service provided by Luckes. Wendy in the office was very helpful and the team on the day were friendly and well-organised. They persisted with getting a very awkward piece of furniture up a tight staircase and won through in the end. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company to others.

Jane Thompson | 20th July 2015

excellent service, reliable, hard working. highly recommended.

david carter | 13th July 2015

I can’t recommend this company enough. What I thought would be a stressful day (moving from a large 5 bed to a smaller 5 bed in a different county) was all done and dusted by 3.15pm on move day. Completed with no fuss and more importantly no breakages. The men on the truck were great and well supported by Wendy and the back office team. I would highly recommend this company and will have no hesitation in using them again in the future.

Jez Giles | 30th June 2015

Very professional service from start to end. The removal men themselves where very polite and helpful. I most certanly would use them again.

Martin | 5th June 2015

The company were a pleasure to deal with. Wendy was great in the back office making sure everything was co-ordinated. The movers were very professional and courteous throughout the process. Nothing was too much trouble and the willingness to please was excellent. I would definitely recommend the company to my friends

Mrs Wilson | 1st June 2015

We had a last minute booking with A Luckes & Son and within 24 hours had the situation sorted and moved within 6 days. They provided a first class service with professional ease and made the move easy. The administration for the day was also smooth, made easy, and very helpful. I would highly recommend them.

Frances Chalk | 28th May 2015

Fred and John packed my Mum’s flat this week. They were polite, hard working and nothing was too much trouble. Wendy in the Office understood my stress and got everything sorted. Wonderful Company. Def use them. Still waiting for a callback from Easymove. Highly recommend them!

Fran Owen | 22nd May 2015

A last minute booking with A Luckes & Son as I was let down by another firm. They provided a first class service, combining professionalism with an abundance of good humour. Nothing was too much trouble and I would highly recommend.Consumed gallons of tea and coffee, but worth every brew!

Sandie Gale | 11th May 2015

Very happy to recommend Luckes and Son after a recent move from London to Swindon – the office team made everything very easy to organise, and the removal guys were friendly and extremely quick and helpful. Will definitely be using them again for my next move.

Jane Maxwell | 8th May 2015

These guys are awesome from the first call to the big event itself. Professional, nice to deal with and very experienced!! Use with peace of mind.

Jeff Kilford | 6th May 2015

Friendly hard working crew, had me loaded and unpacked in no time. I had lots of awkward/heavy furniture over 3 flights of stairs but they managed it all. Great job.

N Eves | 2nd April 2015

My husband and I can\’t praise A. Luckes and Son (Removals & Storage) Limited and our removal men – Fred and Karl – enough for making our move from a four bed detached house in Wiltshire to a two-bed terrace home in Oxford such a stress less experience.

The firms two removal men Fred and Karl were not only the epitome of professionalism – but they were also really easy going, cheery and just genuinely nice blokes – and this was even after they\’d been working moreorless nonstop for over 12 hours!

Also, I hadn\’t thought about it before we moved, but on hindsight it\’s so important to have people like this move you when you are going to be spending such a long time in their company.

I also have to praise the skill of Fred who somehow managed to pack our never-ending mountain of boxes and bits and bobs – and furniture of course – into such a compact space. Both Fred and Karl also took great care with everything they handled which immediately put my mind at rest. There wasn\’t a single breakage – quite some feat.

On top of this, the two had to work around our 10 stone Bull Mastiff dog Rosie who – lovely though she is – always seemed to plonk her immense bulk right in the middle of the action, and generally got in the way most of the day.

Fred and Karl had the patience of saints with her – again, pretty impressive after a physically draining 12 plus hour shift.

Operations Manager Wendy was incredibly helpful and patient – fitting our removal in at the last minute and then reassuring me that their removal men would sort me out with extra boxes and bubble wrap after I ran out the night before.

So, a big thank you to A. Luckes and Son (Removals & Storage) Limited – worth every penny!

Amanda, Paul & Rosie

Amanda Walton | 24th March 2015

The packing/moving guys really put us at ease during what had previously been a stressful sale/purchase process. With the effort they put in, and their friendly attitude, jokes, and easygoing manner, we couldn’t fault them – other than the amount of tea they can put away! And of course, they kept me informed at each step of the way. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Luckes & Son to anyone. Just make sure you have plenty of tea available on the day! 🙂

Kevin Anderson | 1st December 2014

Certainly 5 stars, the company is amazing! Wendy was my first contact and she was so very helpful and put my mind at ease as I was recommending them to move my 85 year old parents!! The guys turned up on time and the day went without a hitch, they were professional and friendly throughout – will definately recommend thank you all.

Jane Honey | 30th October 2014

Thank you to all at Luckes for their excellent service. We cannot praise everyone highly enough and will certainly recommend the company.
Peter & Sandra Bauer, Wiltshire, October 2014

Peter and Sandra Bauer | 23rd October 2014

I used this company to both pack and move back in August this year. They were very professional and courteous and made the whole moving process painless. I would definitely use them again and highly recommend their services.

Jane Jolliffe | 13th September 2014

We received an excellent service following a very competitive quote.The team were careful, courteous and enthusiastic .Their perseverance and ingenuity with a couple of difficult items that would not fit the stairs was particularly impressive.Highly recommended.

Nicholas and Rosemary Frome | 12th September 2014

Awesome! When they came to visit they were full of helpful advice about how to prepare for the move, the office was a pleasure to deal with as our completion date changed and on the day, they were simply brilliant. Hard working, professional, helpful, supportive and thoroughly likelable. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Kristian & Jess | 3rd September 2014

Made the whole moving process much less stressful thanks to their great help, especially Maureen and Wendy in the office who were very accommodating and understanding and couldn’t have done any more to help us, even when we found out at 5pm on the Monday that we were moving on the Tuesday, they still managed to organise everything on time and professionally. The moving team arrived nice and early in the morning, were well organised, very helpful and also very funny. Thanks again to all at A Luckes & Son, and if we ever move again (hopefully not in the near future!!) they will be the first people we contact to assist us.

Thanks again, Simon & Gemma.

Simon Maisey | 2nd September 2014

Our recent move to Lydney went very smoothly thanks to Luckes and Son. Maureen in the office was very helpful, answering all the questions I had. The team on the day were fantastic, hard working, professional and very helpful. Thank-you, would reccomend.

Alison Dent | 8th August 2014

Can’t rate them high enough they were absolutely brilliant with moving the contents of our house into storage and then back out when we finally got the keys to our new house. I had a few quotes and they were also one of the cheapest and everyone from Wendy in the office to the guys who did all the loading/unloading were absolutely fantastic. What could have been a stressful time for us was made so much easier with a bit of light entertainment thrown in for free! Will defo use them should we ever have to move again and will be recommending them to all my family and friends.

Rebecca ross | 7th August 2014

Fantastic guys, from start to finish they where very professional and friendly. I would highly recommend anyone considering moving to look at doing it through this removals company. Worth every single penny we spent. We would not hesitate to use them again and recommend them to all our friends and family.

Lisa Hayes | 11th July 2014

I cannot recommend Luckes and Son removals high enough. They made a very stressful situation pretty much stress free with their incredible well organised routine of packing, moving and unpacking.

Definitely use again.

Ben Grayburn | 10th July 2014

This Company are a pleasure to deal with. Very professional and courteous at every step of the way. I was so impressed that I have recommended them to all my friends and colleagues and my daughter has already used them to store her furniture pending the purchase of her new property. They do like to be kept topped up with tea!!
