Polite and Professional Service
Over the years, I have used U Need A Van many times and always had a great experience with them. They also offer reasonable prices. Experience seems to improve, in fact. I received excellent communication about my storage delivery. They were polite and professional when they arrived U Need A Van was very helpful in solving my logistics problems.
Thanks for the review Nathan, we look forward to helping you again in the future.

We had a wonderful experience. Contacted U Need A Van, and then they moved through the procedure together with us on the telephone. This is one of the most fantastic ideas I have seen on the market. We have obtained a pin code that opens the camera to an elegant and contemporary storage cellar below a car park. We wanted storage near us, and together with the annual reduction, it was pretty appealing. We leased a van and parked outside the entry on the ramp. Supposing it would not go beneath the 198cm limitation headspace, but talking with another van driver he said he has precisely the same van for themself and it just fits if you take it slow. By that time, we had nearly completed our unload, so that we did not have a chance to give it a try. Perhaps next time. Okay, that is it for today. Excellent service, thank you.
Cheers Isaac, glad to be of service. See you next time!

WOULDN'T TOUCH WITH A BARGE POLE
APPALLING removal co - rather than accepting that they are only human & have done some damage (a lot in fact) and, had they EVEN BOTHERED TO LOOK @ IT, rather than prevaricating about it not being their fault within the first five minute phone call, I was forced to take them to Court. I lost on a technicality (I forgot to source costs of repair), but it won’t stop me warning other prospective ‘victims of Uneedavan’ from 6 Wentworth Road, Ipswich, from choosing another company. Bet this knocks your smug grin off your face now – owner of uneed!
Hello Mrs Rixon, you have now left well over 30 repeat 1 star online reviews since you first brought this to our attention back in 2018 - Please see your review down this page. "Dated Dec 2, 2018"by Helen. SOFA LEATHER DAMAGED, ANYVAN SAYING THEY COULDN'T HAVE DONE IT. IT WAS PERFECT WHEN IT LEFT FIRST HOUSE. U Need A Van - Attended court 13th December 2019 – The Judge dismissed the case and stated that you had no grounds for an appeal. Case closed - Or so we thought. But, you have continued attacking us online for nearly three years now over something that could have been rectified easily. As we advised, the best solution would be to claim on your home insurance, old for new. We advised this action because U Need A Van did not cause the damage, as stated many, many times in all of our previous responses and no doubt all future ones too. We will not and will NEVER be bullied into paying anything for something we did not do. (Confirmed by the Judge during the court case).

Excellent Service Beginning To End
Thank you U Need A Van! You helped me move my Mum into her new home, it was a really stressful time for us as she is 85 and not moved for 45 years. We had alot to donate and clear as she was downscaling, you made the whole transition so effortless for her. If only we where all as calm as you guys!
Thank you so much for everything.
Thanks for your kind words Danielle.
Jul 2, 2019
Just a short note to thank you for all the assistance and care you gave our son Martin. It was very much appreciated by us. We were very impressed (and so was Martin) with your service and we wish you all the best for your business in the future.

Peace of mind delivered with a smile
This move could have been difficult but due to Daren and teams professional, efficient, skilled and reliable help, delivered with a smile,
we had total peace of mind and can't praise or thank them enough.

Exceptionally good service
Having benefited from Daren and Dean's expertise a couple of years ago, they were the obvious choice this time round. Once again they were friendly, professional and efficient - and they helped us by taking on additional work, when someone else let us down. A real pleasure to do business with.
Thank you for the 5 stars and kind words Chris, hope to help you again in the future.

SOFA LEATHER DAMAGED, ANYVAN SAYING THEY COULDN’T HAVE DONE IT. IT WAS PERFECT WHEN IT LEFT FIRST HOUSE
Good evening Helen, I fully understand your frustration and that someone has clearly damaged your sofa. (Very Badly in our opinion). However, taking to social media and accusing U Need A Van of this when clearly there is another company involved is very unfair. As you are aware our terms and conditions clearly state a time frame for any insurance claims, please note: you have contacted us 2 months later about this issue. We always honour any cost when the occasional damages occur. Because we are fully insured and a Professional local company and our 12 year reputation speaks for itself. All I can suggest if ANYVAN.COM are refusing responsibility is to contact your home insurance company as most cover furniture in cases like this.

One item only move
We only had a sofa bed which needed moving from Hadleigh to Ixworth, Bury St Edmunds but the level of service was AMAZING. I can't emphasise enough how professional these guys were. They had the correct equipment for the job, were clean and efficient. They positioned the item and took great care at both ends of the move. Would not hesitate to recommend them to others. Thank you very much Darren (and Mate).
Many thanks for your kind words Amanda, we look forward to helping you again in the future.

No more AnyVan for me :-)
I called these two amazing chaps, Daren and Dean, in desperation when I was let down. They ended up transporting more items than I had previously thought they would need too and only charged me a small sum for the extras. I thought I would have to get rid of my sofa because it was too big but they managed to get it in my smaller flat and they took very good care of my beloved LG smart TV! They were calm, professional and I felt very comfortable in their company. They left no stone unturned to ensure that I was in my flat before Christmas. Thanks guys you're the SAS of house removals :-)
Thanks for the great review Alison! We love a challenge and your sofa was definitely tricky, but there is always a way. All the best in your new home from U Need A Van.
Dec 17, 2017
Excellent Service - Thank You
I am more than pleased with the service yesterday. Nothing was to much trouble, very polite and very careful with my belongings and even dismantled my wadrobe and rebuilt it for me as it wouldnt fit up my new stair case. With no extra cost attached either! Very welcome at this time of year.
:-) Thank you very much
Oct 27, 2017
These guys were great, cannot rate them enough. Went the extra miles_no question, nothing a problem and excellent sense of humour!
Oct 23, 2017
Will always use
This is the 2nd time and again everything was spot on. Move from a new build into an old build. Was expecting trouble with the tiny staircase and our king size mattress but they managed it in minutes - I think they even enjoyed the challenge! Very professional service. Professional beyond belief.
Oct 18, 2017

Excellent service and took all of the trouble out of moving. Nothing was to much. Thank you for being not only very professional but very polite also. Would highly recommended. Thank you very much.

The only one you need to call
If you want a professional, kind, consideration and careful removal company. Don't bother phoning anyone else. Darren and Dean could not have been more brilliant. They are both not just all of the above but they are great to be around. If I ever move again I would give them a call. In fact once my house becomes my home, after all the work that needs to be done. I have told them they are invited round to the BBQ.
Dean and Darren thank you for all the hard work and the friendly banter. Jules

Large furniture move
I will be happily recommending to everyone I know!! Really helpful and couldn't of been nicer they went over and above the call of duty and made a very stressful time a lot easier, they sorted out my washing machine issue and because they knew I'd like my daughters bedroom ready for her return from school they built her bed and wardrobe. It's not often you meet such genuine people I would definitely use them again,A HUGE thank you ????
Jul 2, 2017
We moved from our 4 bedroom house in Ipswich to Norfolk. We phoned Daren who was on his way to Liverpool at the time. He came that evening to give us a quote which was reasonable for 2 men and 2 vans.
On the day we had expected a stressful experience, but Daren and Dean's good humour and professionalism made the whole experience rather enjoyable. They provided coverings for mattresses, padded bags for breakables , and did everything in a calm and careful manner. Could not recommend more highly. Really great guys. Use them!

We chose "U Need A Van" because of the helpful, friendly, professional service offered by telephone. This was followed up with a carefully planned move, with you visiting in advance to check what was to be moved. On arrival you were punctual and cheerful and let me know your progress en route, which was really helpful. A great experience start to finish.

The smoothest and most careful move
I could not fault the srevice and attention to detail. The smoothest and most careful move I have experienced. Many thanks to you both. I would definitely recommend U Need A Van to anyone else.
Nov 8, 2016
I have used them before and the service was perfect yet again!
Nov 4, 2016
We called U Need A Van because I was let down at the last minute, by a local company I will not mention here! They did everything they could to get me out of my house by 12.30pm (the dead line set by my estate agent). Daren calmed us right down assuring us, all will work out? and it did! Brilliant service and most definitely the smoothest and dare I say the most "enjoyable" move I have ever had. The team arrived at 10.20am, far later than the previously booked company at 8am. Everything was loaded in no time at all and the funny thing was, we had to wait for keys for our new home, because their removal company were still loading. I must say it was one of the most surreal days of my life. Anyway this is supposed to be a review, recommend YES! Use again YES! Thank you so much U Need A Van. . .
Nov 4, 2016
Large items move
Moved a mix of sideboard, mattresses, beds, wardrobes. All spot on - timing (even though pick up was in the sticks), items dealt with delicately but quickly, drop off to given rooms was perfect - they even laid rugs down throughout the house. Decent conversation as well. Will use again.

Let Down By ANYVAN.COM
Big thank you to U Need A Van who came to our rescue after being let down by a firm on ANYVAN.COM. After waiting for two hours for the late removals company to turn up we where getting quite frantic. I received a TEXT message stating they couldn't make it! WTF... These boys agreed to help us out at short notice and arrived after already completing a 2 bedroom house move today and are still unloading our things into our new house as I am typing this now 6pm. I am so grateful for everything they have done today for my wife an I. All I can say is I wholeheartedly recommend this firm.

Daren made this two part move very easy. My goods we collected, stored and then delivered a week later to the new address. All in great order.
Daren is very polite and courteous and easy to work with. Easy payment with a hand held card reader. So no worries about billing - all taken care of at the end of the move.
Would highly recommend to anyone needing a removal and or storage.

Great job, highly recommended!
I contacted Daren to arrange for a bed to be collected from Ipswich and delivered to Chelmsford. Daren gave a competitive and accommodating quote and gave an exact timescale which helped with planning for my item arriving. Daren was able to give me a 10 minute warning so I could pop home to receive my item, this saved me taking a half day from work. The service was exceptional, very professional and exactly as promised. I highly recommend this company!! Thanks again guys

Aug 25, 2015
Been trying unsuccessfully to move a large, long, heavy sideboard, up to the second floor (it’s a town house) navigating round banisters and low ceilings…several failed attempts later with friends and family! I gave UNEEDAVAN a call after reading a few of the testimonials to see if they had any ideas or if what I thought was my next best solution, they could put it through the window on the 1st floor if we removed the window and bought in some lifting gear. The guys were very understanding of my problem, volunteered to come round and have a look, same day, and had a go at taking it up the stairs there and then. I’m pleased to say they managed to take it up the stairs…..where so many had failed before them. Great job…nothing to small (even though it was large), great service and highly recommended.
Thank you UNEEDAVAN
Your most welcome Robin, happy customers are our number one goal :-)

Apr 21, 2015
So much more than just a van service
I have used Uneedavan on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed with the level of service and the efficiency and friendliness of the team.

Apr 15, 2015

The team made me feel relaxed
I was quite stressed about moving home as it was the first time I had had to do it alone, the team made me feel relaxed and were happy to answer all my questions and help wherever they could. Nothing was too much trouble and the day went very well. I am delighted with the service I received and I soon forgot about my stresses throughout the day.
Mar 30, 2015
Punctual, polite and professional!
Punctual, polite and professional! – What more can I Say?
Mar 22, 2015
I have recommended them to a friend
The service we had was wonderful and made to look so easy. All the team were friendly & polite, experienced and smartly dressed in full U Need A Van attire. Both office and removal employees knew what our needs were and were well informed. They arrived early and started without delay. We packed as much as we could but saved all of our fragile things for them to pack professionally including protecting our large TV. I have recommended them to a friend of mine and I am in no doubt that the service they receive will be as excellent as mine.
Mar 10, 2015
You will not find anyone better than these guys!
I have several house's and have used UneedAvan on more than one occasion, they always work so hard yet make the whole process look easy. I recently used them again to move just a few items from one of my homes in London down to Suffolk, once again a great job – You will not find anyone better than these guys!
Mar 8, 2015
Knowledgeable along with professional
The team that did our move were efficient and very pleasant, Daren who did our quote was knowledgeable along with professional, assuring us that our quote included all materials and any waiting time would be included. Their quote was on par with others we received so we made our decision based upon the ease we were put at from the start. We were right to do so and received an excellent service.
Mar 1, 2015
All went smoothly
EXCELLENT service, I met Daren a week before my move to arrange.things. I would highly recommend this company they were there on the dot ready to load the van, they took care of my furniture by wrapping blankets around to protect it when necessary. Their professional manner and good spirits made all the difference. If I ever need anything moving again I will definitely give Daren a call, why struggle and do it yourself when these guys are around . A big big thank you!
Feb 24, 2015
Unfortunately my table was damaged on moving day
Unfortunately my table was damaged on the day of my move with the corner edge being broken off. The guy in charge on the day sincerely apologised and phoned the office straight away to report the damage. The next day the boss came out to see and evaluate the damage and said he would arrange for the repairs to be done. I guess at some point these things happen and therefore I would still use these guys again as the service was good and I never felt like the issue would be left unresolved. My table was repaired quickly and you would never know it had been damaged. Their communication thoughout was excellent with customer service a priority.
Feb 11, 2015
10/10, brilliant service
Honestly, I've always wondered whether these reviews were real, but having been through a move with U Need A Van, I can believe all of them. The guys were brilliant - professional, friendly, and got the job done in a remarkably short time. Both had a great sense of humour too and had me laughing throughout! Can't praise enough and couldn't recommend more. Thanks again Daren and Dean!
Feb 10, 2015
MOVING A FEW THINGS!
We only had a few items to move from my flat upstairs (to my daughters flat) and get new furniture for me.
Daren and A.N.Other (!) arrived bang on time and they were extremely pleasant and helpful.
Thank you! :)
Feb 9, 2015
A marvellous service
I was really concerned the week leading up to our move as the weather had been terrible suffering from blizzards and freezing temperatures. I kept thinking there is no way anyone will move us in these conditions! On the day of our move luckily the snow did not settle it was just very, very wet. The men turned up at 8.30 sharp just as arranged. They were not fazed by the conditions and took care to protect all the carpets. A marvellous service, these dudes are great.
Jan 28, 2015
Polite, Swift and Professional
Try and do it yourself or try the cheap undertrained/underinsured....then call these guys to fix it. Or, call them first, you will be glad you did. Moved an antique 1927 Piano (not light) out of my house and into the new owner's house without a wince, moan or groan and were tidy and punctual.
Jan 27, 2015
Couldn’t ask for more
U Need A Van have now moved me three times, every time they have exceeded my expectations, are always full of cheer and each time the day has gone well. Couldn’t ask for more, a proper job!
Jan 23, 2015
You took the stress out of our move
Thank you for doing a fantastic job for us, you went the extra mile helping us to reassemble our furniture, plumbing our washing machine and sharing both of yours great sense of humour. You took the stress out of our move and helped us to put everything in its place in our new home. We wish you well for the future and will be sure to recommend your services to anyone we know who is on the move. Thank you again.
Jan 16, 2015
Without doubt would use again
The boys did an excellent job, working very well together, in unison. They are clearly experienced and had no doubts about the work in hand, very impressed, without doubt would use again and recommend.
Jan 11, 2015
Everything was unloaded with care and speed
We moved 200 miles and therefore had an early start everything was unloaded with care and speed, unfortunately a traffic jam set us back and ended up being a late finish too. A long day for the workmen but they all had such a great attitude towards everything and just got stuck in. A great crew!
Dec 30, 2014
The move was well handled
From start to finish the move was well handled and the team were highly efficient and polite – No complaints! Thanks
Dec 24, 2014
Thank You & Happy Christmas!
I wanted to pass on my appreciation and admiration to Daren & Dean, who moved our small 2 bedroom family home recently. Not only were they professional and polite but very efficient and most of all had excellent attitudes to ensuring this was our easiest move to date. We have now moved several times but never like this, such a relaxed atmosphere; having previously experienced bad attitudes with some removal men being rude and careless with one of my leather sofas being torn!! I cannot express loudly enough how pleased I am to have stumbled across this company and would use again without hesitation. I am storing their number in my phone, for sure. Thank You & Happy Christmas!
Dec 13, 2014
Our move was to two locations so we had a part move on the first day and the remaining all done on the second day. Everything was planned and timed to precision and all went to plan. Good job.
Dec 12, 2014

They were amazing took great care of my possessions and could not have been more helpful and friendly. Would happily recommend to friends and family.
Dec 10, 2014
They made everything run fluently;
We were thrilled with the service and would recommend to anyone who is about to move home. The loading and unloading went well and they are worked extremely hard under the direction of Dean & Daren. They made everything run fluently; the day went far better than we could have dreamt off.
Dec 3, 2014
The move went smoothly
I only had a one bedroom flat to move from but I was on the top floor, 5 storeys up, the men arrived loaded everything onto the van with no fuss or complaining from the stairs. The move went smoothly and all my things arrived in one piece. I was very satisfied with the service I had and the men were polite and friendly.

The gentlemen arrived on time
My move was in two parts, one day taking some items into storage and a week later the rest of my belongings to my new home. On both days the gentlemen arrived on time and well turned out in uniform, they worked efficiently and conducted themselves in qualified skilful manner. I hope I wont need to move again for some time but when the occasion arrives I will be utilising their services once more. Good work.

Very Very Satisfied
After being unwell prior to my house sale finally going a-head I was pleased to be relocating but the thought of packing up my whole house terrified me. A friend recommended using having a full pack and move service. Daren came round and discussed my needs, the next day I received an email with my written quote and details of what to expect from the packing service, taking items to the dump and the removal. The service they provided was very professional and personalised to my needs, they packed everything excellently and the move day went far better than I could have dreamt of. Very Very Satisfied and would use and recommend in a heart beat.

I don't know how they do it!
U Need A Van moved me this week from my 1 bedroom flat in Ipswich to Neptune Marina. They where amazing, they made it look so easy. I don't know how they do it day in day out? All that heavy lifting! So grateful though, really great service and will be using next time. Thanks again.

Great service, cheerful bunch of chaps
They say moving home is stressful-Not with these guys it isn't, great service, cheerful bunch of chaps, we had an excellent day!

Very good local company
We found U Need A Van and their workers good at what they do and do what they say they would. All the men were very sociable and cared for delicate items it seemed like nothing was too much trouble for them to organise & do. I think they are a very good local company which we would recommend to anyone and would not hesitate to use again, big thanks to all the team.

It was actually a pleasant experience
It’s the first time I have moved and it was actually a pleasant experience. The men on the day were friendly and patient. I had to wait 3 hours for my keys and was becoming annoyed but the guys stayed calm and remained friendly and helpful. When I finally got the keys the move went easily and we were soon thanking them at the end of the day. I will keep their number and if I ever move again will be using them for sure.

I have to say I was apprehensive before moving
I have to say I was apprehensive before moving as it was only the second time I had moved. I called Daren and he came and gave me a quote and listened to my concerns, reassuring me everything would be wrapped and protected on the day. He was right I did not need to be concerned the day went smoothly, a wonderful job done.
Oct 30, 2014
I would definitely use them again
The guys were fantastic. They worked so hard and nothing was a problem even when faced with dismantling and packing my large book case, I would definitely use them again although no offense guys hopefully not too soon !

The day went without a hitch
We moved into storage so were concerned that everything was packed and protected, which it was & all the bubble wrap and boxes were included. The day went without a hitch with a professional service. There is no doubt we will use you again to move us into our new home, when we finally get it!
Oct 20, 2014
The quote was a very good price
We were delighted with the service from U Need A Van, the van and the men arrived on time and were very relaxed putting our stressed family at ease from the beginning. Daren came out to give us our quote & was a very friendly, helpful man. The quote was a very good price for the wonderful service we received.

Took a lot of pressure off the whole family
I had already used UneedAvan several times before into and out of storage, so when my parents were moving I arranged for them to move them as-well. They had accumulated 40 years of belongings and were downscaling dramatically. They arranged for all the items they no longer wanted to be disposed of and then did a full pack and move for their remaining stuff. They took a lot of pressure off the whole family and did it with ease and experience. If you want a small friendly but professional service – this is the company!

No swearing, problems or hassle.
Our move worked out really well the men worked really hard with no swearing, problems or hassle. Every little thing was beautifully wrapped and secured just before it left the house.
Oct 10, 2014
I highly recommend using them.
This company was an absolute lifesaver, lots of factors went completely wrong with our move however U Need A Van were wonderful and also nothing was too much trouble for them. They showed up early, were incredibly useful and very supportive. I highly recommend using them.
Oct 5, 2014
We used Uneedavan for our son's move from Ipswich to Chandlers Ford (just north of Southampton). Overall service was superb from initial contact right through to final move. The two guys who did the heavy lifting and shifting were polite, friendly and very efficient.
I would certainly recommend to anybody else.

My first testimonial! These guys were that great.
We moved from Stowmarket to Ipswich yesterday. I had a couple unique demands (Some antique family heirlooms packed into my specialist crates, an oak dining table and chairs relocated to someone else's home that I had bought from Ebay). U Need A Van were glad to meet my request.
3 men showed up promptly and also worked their tails off the entire time. They were professional, considerate, as well as managed everything with due care and attention. They earned every penny. Every little thing was in place and all done well before I had even planned it to be!
We've used national moving companies in the past costing us almost double. U Need A Van has made us very happy and saved us a few pounds along the way. Great local company.

Fantastic man & van service :-)
Just what I needed, some strong men to move all my big items of furniture. Fantastic man & van service :-)
Sep 22, 2014
Fast & Efficient Service
U Need A Van shot down to Romford for me, they were fully booked. But once they understood my predicament Daren agreed to help out with no hesitation, by adding me onto their already 12hr day. Fast & efficient service and very understanding. Will definitely use again in the not to distant future.
Sep 20, 2014
I am very happy to return and leave a brief review. I simply agree with all the testimonials on here and now with first hand experience of U Need A Vans services I can and will be recommending them to everyone.

The 2nd time using Darren's removal company. Up to previous experience which was excellent. Moved my elderly in-laws from Ipswich to Felixstowe. At all times Darren remained calm and professional and sympathetic to the needs of my in -laws.
His company provides something which is unique, a totally individual service. He makes you feel that you, your move, your possessions are of prime importance to him......amazing in the current business world. Highly recommended.
Thank you Darren.
Sep 14, 2014
Dazzling service, U Need A Van managed to fit me into their hectic day and collected a sofa as well as a bedroom suite from Felixstowe. I had been terribly let down by a man with a van advertising on gumtree. Will certainly be my ONLY choice for this type of service from now on. MANY THANKS U NEED A VAN!

Don't hesitate, give these a ring!
This company is consistently great. I have used them three times, two house moves and one item move. I will have no hesitation in calling them for any future move.
There manner and friendliness is what sets them apart from the rest of their profession. The introduction to the website on the home page is all true, they do what they say they will.
Thank you Darren and Dean for taking the stress out of moving.

Very good alround experience with outstanding attention to detail and customer service.

These gentlemen have just moved a piano for me. They were very polite and helpful. They carried out this job smoothly and efficiently and in a very professional manner. Great work. Thank you.

True experts in their field
These boys were recommended by my brother after their move to Colchester. He couldn't speak enough so I had to call U Need A Van. All I can say is they are true experts in their field, real pleasure to watch them at work and the big fella must have the strength of ten men pressing a washing machine over his head! Just amazing, see you next time for sure.
Aug 22, 2014
Nice price and no heavy lifting for us!
The cost of a full house removal service was out of our budget. Daren was very flexible and agreed to just move our largest items of furniture, allowing us to do the rest in our people carrier. Nice price and no heavy lifting for us! Highly recommended.
Aug 17, 2014
Brilliant Man & Van Service
Collected my new sofa arm chairs from the recent next sale. Turned up on time and delivered to my 2nd floor flat, only took 45min far better than the store offered, with 3 weeks delivery and would of cost more! Thanks U Need A Van :-)

Very good service from U Need A Van
Thank you for my move to London yesterday and apologies again for the lift being out of service. What terrible timing! Very good service from U Need A Van, I recommend you whole heartedly especially after alot of stairs to the 7th floor. The men where very good and still cheerful whilst working and even helped me put my bed back together. Thank you very much and I wish you all the very best for the future.

Great little firm
U Need A Van are a great little firm that I have used alot over the last couple years. They have moved my house, collected new furniture from town and even put us into storage when we had a small fire at our cottage. I am very pleased to have them in my contacts for whenever I need a hand.

Small Move To Nottingham
Moved my 1 bedroom flat to Nottingham, really well done and very helpful. I will be recommending you.

No fuss and all done in a couple of hours!
I used U Need A Van's man and van service to help me move my small office. I would just like to say, they did a fanastic job. The thought of relocating the office whilst keeping my business at full steam was a real headache to say the least. But the guys at U Need A van made it oh so easy. Allowing me to continue business as usual with no fuss and all done in a couple of hours! Excellent service and very reasonable price to. Highly recommended.
Jul 27, 2014
By far the best and the most friendly
Right from the very beginning U Need A Van made the whole day stress free. All their staff are an asset to the firm. They had the house packed very quickly and unloaded even faster. The staff are very friendly, putting us at ease and made our sons day by letting him sit in the drivers seat of the lorry. We had serveral quotes and U Need A Van were not the cheapest option, but deep down I just new I had to go with this company and were by far the best and the most friendly.
Jul 25, 2014
Big thanks to you Daren and your removal team. The whole day went so well, despite being hit with the blazing sunshine then random sudden down pours. Your men kept everything dry and where even still smiling at the end of a hard day of lifting and moving our whole house. I really don't know how they do it? But we are very grateful for your services.
Jul 15, 2014
Job well done, thank you. Will be calling you again next time.
Jul 13, 2014
MANY MANY THANKS
MANY MANY THANKS TO U NEED A VAN. FOR THE EXCELLENT SERVICE & VERY HARD WORK. NOTHING TO MUCH FOR YOU TO DO FOR ME WITH A SMILE AND WITH NO DAMAGE. THANKING YOU VERY MUCH.
Jul 6, 2014
Thanks for being so helpful. Getting four sofas through an upstairs window was a difficult job done with a smile.
Jul 2, 2014
Your teams calm and professional approach was a breath of fresh air. You made it look so easy, lifting what I would consider heavy furniture through our old homes narrow hall and stairway with considerable ease. A pleasure to watch and nothing was to much trouble, positioning everything in our new home. A big thankyou to U Need A Van from my wife & I. Highly recommended and will be using you again in a few years when were ready for our bungalow.
Jun 22, 2014
Would recommend these guys 100%
This is the second time i have used Uneedavan and they have provided an excellent service both times i have moved. Very friendly, courteous and efficient, more than happy to help with anything and very careful and respectful of your furniture and personal items. They really take the stress away of moving. Would recommend these guys 100%

UneedAvan removals review
UneedAvan removals are excellent! Its the second time I have hired them to help me, I have 3 large wardrobes that need breaking down and rebuilding everytime I move. All went perfectly again thanks to Daren and his team. I highly recommended this company, they are professional, extremely helpful and very careful.
Jun 2, 2014
Very efficient and friendly
Just used this firm to move they fitted me in at short notice. Arrived on time were very efficient and friendly even bought us ice lollies as was a warm day. If your looking for a relaxed move then choose Darren

We moved from Ipswich to Somerset about 6 weeks ago and we couldn't have been happier with the excellent service we received. Lads arrived at 7 as we had quite a journey ahead of us left at 9 all packed. Everything was protected well in the van and we had no damage to items. We have moved alot over the years and always moved ourselves but i wish we had found this company years ago they are by far the most competitive and no stress involved. Highly recommend. Many thanks once again to everyone at U Need A Van.

I am writing this comfortably from our new home, thanks to U Need A Van Removals. We wanted to be moved in and get settled for the bank holiday tomorrow. But everything went so smoothly and quickly, everything is where I wanted it to be and we are unpacked already. Rob and I are now geting ready to try our new local pub for a lovely roast dinner today. Thanks again to the whole team as this was simply the best move we have ever had. All the empty boxes are ready to be collected in the garage whenever your ready Daren and thank you to you and the guys.

Fantasic Removal Service!
Simply a great company! My move was made very easy, as I opted for the full pack and move service. Everything was packed up the day before and ready to move early the following morning. Daren was so helpful with all of my enquiries, putting me at total ease. I even went out for the day whilst the men where packing up my things and when I returned home, to my pleasure everything was done. Moving day was a bit tense waiting for confirmation on keys, but all in all a very good move, I will definitely be recommending you. Thanks
Apr 23, 2014
We found your team professional, helpful and friendly and done an outstanding job for us. Highly recommended!
Best regards to you all

I was delighted with Daren and his professional team's attention to detail, helpfulness and courteous nature at all times. Nothing was too much trouble and the result was a stress free day with no breakages and everything delivered to the correct destinations! Even when plans were altered halfway through Daren delivered everything on time. I would have no hesitation in recommending Daren and his team!
