Here at Hardakers we have been offering removal and storage services to customers throughout East Yorkshire for over a century. During this time we have earned a reputation for the exceptional levels of service we offer and are renowned throughout Hull for our professionalism, complete reliability and friendly, helpful team.
However, don’t just take our word for it. Have a read through our testimonials today for a better idea of what some of our customers think…
Hat’s off to James and Callum who undertook my removal. Had a quote in December 2018, wasn’t the cheapest but they did match a competitors and I liked the family feel of James’ quote. Droppes off plenty of boxes and packaging well in advance and wardrobe cartons on the day.
Both of the guys were quick and helpful on both ends taking down furniture and reassembling at the new house. Made the whole day really stress free and a pleasure. If there was an award for moving house easily, stress free and for a great price they would win it!
Thanks so much,
James Barnes – 09/04/19
Late frantic calls on Friday afternoon and at very last minute Hardakers stepped in and saved the day moving me the following Monday. Two men worked extremely well and had a laugh along the way. Would definitely recommend
Thanks so much,
Sue Bone – 03/04/19
Fantastic experience with Hardakers for my house move. Big thanks to James and Scott. They worked tirelessly till 7pm to get me moved. Nothing was too much trouble. From the moment I booked them it was a great experience. Thoroughly recommend them.
Thanks so much,
Lauren Ricketts – 30/03/19
Just wanted to give your team our appreciation during the house move. It was an excellent service to say the least, a big thanks to Steve and his gang for doing a commendable job. I would highly recommend this very professional service.
Thanks so much,
Siraj Nailman – 29/03/19
We used Hardakers for our move. They packed our full house. The team treated our belongings with respect and worked tirelessly throughout the move.
The management and office staff were keen to help and professional throughout.
4 young children, pets and a house full of the last 14 years was no easy task. Thank you! Would recommend and use again … if I ever HAD to move again!!!
Thanks so much,
Jo Munkley – 26/03/19
Firstly I wanted to send a huge thank you to the removal crew that helped us move last week and over the weekend. The men were first class and helped our move run smoothly.
The men must have been shattered by the time they left on Saturday evening. I know I was and wasn’t doing the heavy work they were. Really big thanks to them, they were really great!
Thanks so much,
Victoria Farmer – 30/01/19
Thanks so much for organising this. It was much appreciated and your guys were great.
I’ve told many people since it was the best moving experience I’ve had, and I’ve moved a lot of times!
Thanks for your continued good service. It’s much appreciated.
Jenny – 27/01/19
Wanted to thank you for the excellent service. The move went very well thanks.
Cranswick Foods – 23/01/19
We used Hardakers for our removal and storage. James and Laura where really good and the guys who moved us on the day where amazing and really helpful.
Made what I thought would be really stressful a very quick easy move. Have no worries about the removal back from storage into our new home as I know they will take care of everything.
Thanks so much,
Lucy Walker – 10/01/19
Thank you for the wonderful service you provided four weeks ago when I moved house. The van was fully loaded and then unloaded quickly and efficiently by your friendly staff. I’ve now unpacked all boxes and found no damage at all. I couldn’t have wished for more.
Christine Wilkinson – 04/01/19
Hi all of you at Hardakers, I would Just like to say a big THANK YOU for the grand job your team has done in moving my stuff to my new home in Anglesey.

Mrs Linda Broughton – 01/09/18
We are now in our new house. I would just like to thank you for your help. Chaz and the rest of the team were excellent. They worked tirelessly to get all of our stuff out and then in to our new house. We will always recommend your company to our friends.
Thank you once again,
Terry & Trisha. – 29/09/18
On Alex Watts recommendation we used Hardakers to move on Friday, excellent friendly service, nothing too much trouble, the lads were great and very careful with our belongings, great service highly, reasonable price highly recommend.
Lorraine Ramsey – 17/08/18
Thank you for a great service with our house move.
Both lads Dan and Lee were pleasant to have and worked hard despite the heat of the weather.
Everything arrived in as was condition when it left and with the weather proved to be a long day.
A very professional service of which we would recommend.
Thanks so much,
Jon & Catherine Powell – 20/07/18
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say a MASSIVE thank you to Sam and Dan.
Never have we experienced such a hassle free move. They worked like Trojans and nothing was too much trouble. They’re professional, courteous and hardworking. They are a real credit to your company and your reputation, we know we made the right choice using Hardakers for our move.
They treated both properties respectfully and they felt like family members the way they integrated with us and got us into our new home with not one hiccup.
Please pass on our heartfelt thanks.
One thing we are missing is a doorstop, it’s a dalmation dog. It was only picked up at the last minute and I think It may be in the cab? It was a wedding present and whilst it holds no financial value it is sentimental. If you could please check with the lads I don’t mind swinging by the office on Monday to pick it up.
Thank you again,
Michelle & Matt – 14/07/18
Just wanted to say Jimmy, Brad, Charlie and the other guy (sorry I didn’t get his name), really looked after us and got everything here safe and sound. They really are a credit to your company and I would appreciate it if you would pass on our sincere thanks to them all.
Many thanks for your help in getting the Charity moved
Jayne Beck – HER Breast Friends – 21/06/18
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to the lads who helped me and my family move.Excellent, polite, early, helpful.Moving is stressful but they made this as quick and painless as possible. They were even worried about our runaway cat. (we found him much later that night!)
Mrs Louise Hall – 12/06/18
Thank you so much for stepping in and helping with our move yesterday. It was a mammoth job that we clearly would have struggled with if we had done it on our own as planned, I can only recommend others to use your services rather than try to do a move themselves. Your lads were great and will be getting a good deal on their photoshoots.
We appreciate your help so much.
Nino Travagli Photography – 06/06/18
I just wanted to say a big thank you for moving us on Thursday/Friday last week. The team led by Steve were both friendly and professional, nothing was too much trouble. Steve was especially helpful on moving day as I wasn’t feeling too well and we had a long wait for keys. When we finally got in the team did an excellent job putting things in the right rooms and assembling our furniture. The only thing I am waiting to turn up is the box with the toaster in! Nathan packed it towards the end so I am hoping it’s in a box in the garage somewhere as it will have gone on the second truck.
Hopefully we won’t be moving again for a long time but I wouldn’t hesitate to use you again or recommend your reliable service.
Clare Close – 09/05/18
We are all settled in our new home with big thanks to you and your team.
We just want to say how fantastic the lads were who did our move on Friday. They did a great job!
All the best,
Lizzie and Tim
Just to let you know that the second part of my removal which took place yesterday went as smoothly as the first. Sam and Charlie were courteous, helpful and entirely professional. I look forward to the third and final part!
I’ve spoken to my wife who was at home during today’s move.
We would like to express our thanks. She stated there professionalism and service was extremely good..
If you could pass my thanks onto the guys involved i would be grateful.
I will be recommending your company to friends and family.
Wayne & Sarah
For the record, many thanks for the hard work put in by you in arranging and to your operatives-Jimmy & Mikey-last Wednesday in making the move of my furniture etc from your storage and also from my dad’s house into the new place go without any problem, they were very helpful and both made the move go without a hitch, which is greatly appreciated.
I would gladly recommend using Hardakers to anyone who needs your expertise and help when moving between properties.
Adrian Richmond – Senior Architect – 20/04/18
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for all the hard work you and your team have delivered on the removals of 316 vulnerable people into our three extra care schemes over the last year. Delivered very professionally as always with very little incidents, please pass on my thanks to the removal personnel.
I believe all but the last invoice sent last week has now been paid, however, if there are others please let me have them and I’ll check them out.
Again, thank you and maybe work with you again in the future.
Thanks so much,
Carmen, Hull City Council
To all the young men involved you were fantastic hard working men and I would like to personally make sure that Hardakers are aware of such a polite/courteous/careful and very hard working team,Thank you all involved in the collection and delivery and in my opinion you are a massive credit to this company
Just wanted to take a moment to send a huge thank you to all your team for handling our house move on 10th nov, from Victoria Dock to Preston. After having booked you, then cancelled only to have to re-book for the original day – you have been brilliant! Can’t fault the service at all, the two lads (Mikey & ?Jamie?) were hardworking and pleasant, nothing was too much trouble and they had the job done in no time – they never even complained about all the stairs! Thanks again for helping ease the strain of a hectic day!
Thanks so much,
Still haven’t finished unpacking the boxes but have a growing mountain of empty ones. What do I do with them?
Also hope u paid the 2 guys who did our move a big bonus. They were just outstanding.
Also massive thanks to yourself and Hardakers who looked after us so well.
All the best,
Can’t thank you and the guys enough for moving the elephants this morning. I still don’t know how you got them through the door at Wilberforce but thank you. You were all brilliant.
I just wanted to express my sincere thanks to Hardakers and the team who were involved with our house move (and packing) on 25/8/17. I am so pleased that you guys were involved and help make our house move as painless as possible. We have some friends that are due to move soon and I have been singing your praises and recommending you to everyone I know. Please send my best wishes on to Steve and Duncan – they were brilliant.
Dr Donna Burrell
Dear Mr Johnson,
A thank you to all at Hardakers for the successful house move from Kirkella to Dorchester on the 14th and 15th August ’17,
Both ‘removers’ were excellent, polite, cheerful and took care of my possessions both going into the van and coming out. They were extremely hard working and very competent.
Thank you to Hardakers for an excellent service.
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our house move as smooth as possible, I am amazed that not a single item has been damaged in any way given the amount of items transferred. Your team worked incredibly hard and were also very friendly and personable. It will be a pleasure to recommend your service to others in the future.
A big thank you to Steve, Lee, Steve & Jimmy for helping us with our move – you were all brilliant. Also, thanks to everyone at Hardakers for their help – we will be recommending you highly.
Thanks once again
Debi & Alan Rymer
The move took place over Friday and Saturday of last week.
From Brough to Glasgow with a full packing service, load and travel on the Friday, night out in Glasgow, delivery and return on the Saturday.
Just a notes to thank all of you at Hardakers for handling our move from Brough to Anlaby. Right from my initial contact through to the final piece of furniture being placed in our new house I cannot praise you highly enough! ‘The lads’ on the day were brilliant – another was too much trouble, and everything was done with such good will and humour. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your team
Mr & Mrs Quantock
Hardakers delivered the most excellent, professional service. They were attentive, empathetic and communicated extremely well. I have nothing but praise for them, from the family in the office to the guys on the vans
Mike Hoyle, Hull
Hardakers moved me out of my house in Beverley in June 2015, kept my furniture in store for 17 months and brought it down to Berkshire in December 2017, nothing was damaged and the service was excellent.
Cheers once again
Penelope Dugdale, Windsor
We moved from Hull to the Isle of Skye, our removal went smoothly and stress free. Our belongings were treated with care, we felt valued as customers and the service was first class in every aspect.
Pete and Lorraine Littlewood, Broadford, Isle of Skye
On Monday the 5th December, myself and my partner (Miss Amanda Hart), booked with yourselves to move from Loxley Way in Brough to Lancaster Way in Brough.
We were informed by your office that the removal team would arrive around 7:30 – 8:30 on the 5th. I stayed out in Hedon on the night of the 4th with family, returning the morning of the 5th for the move. Shortly after my arrival at Loxley Way, around 7:30 – 7:40 ish, your removal crew arrived.
Steve and Dave, or yourselves cannot be thanked enough. The lads were conscientious, hard working, courteous and professional, throughout the move. The day and the move couldn’t have been smoother, thanks to your crew. No question, was too much and no job to small, or unacheivable, with Steve and Dave. They really made ourselves feel looked after and comfortable.
Also, praise needs to go to your surveyor James. Without whose visit and quote wouldn’t have secured our business with yourselves. Jame’s approach on his home visit to ourselves, really made me warm to yourselves as a company. I felt spoken to as an individual and not just another client, his manner was informative instructive and confident. He really knew the business inside and out.
I have never used a removal company of your size before (only ever needing a man in a van for minimal moves).
Therefore with this testimonial, a tremendous thanks again for an excellent service and house move. I cannot thank or praise yourselves enough.
I would always recommend yourselves in the future.
Mat Bunting & Amanda Hart .
I Used Hardakers for 2 moves via storage, efficient, friendly team with no damage to any items. Would highly recommend.
Mr and Mrs Sellars
The entire experience dealing with Hardakers was perfect, both the office staff and the removal men were extremely friendly professional and a pleasure to deal with. The whole process was much more efficient than we expected and thorough to a point of returning a questionnaire directly to their awarding body.
Ms Alice Brocklebank
Thank you for doing a great job in moving us to our new home. The boys turned up on time (if not earlier), all were very helpful, pleasant, polite and good fun at a time when it could of been a lot more stressful!!! We will recommend you to friends, family and our own customers if anyone will be moving in the future.
Mr and Mrs Dunn
Hi, to all at Hardakers, we’d like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you for the first class service we received for our recent house move to Louth. Whilst we had 3 different quotes, one of which was cheaper, the initial meeting with James totally put our minds at rest and assured us the service you offered would be extremely professional which proved to be exactly the case.
We would like to thank Kayleigh for her understanding and professionalism in what was quite a drawn out process as the moving date was put back twice.
With regards the actual move we cannot stress highly enough how impressed we were with the guys that came on the day and we would very much appreciate you passing on our thanks.
They were friendly, upbeat, very professional and extremely hard working and we believe as the face of your company they were a real credit to you and whatever you are paying them isn’t enough – they were that good and made what was quite a stressful event so much easier than it would have been had they not conducted themselves the way they did.
Once again a massive thanks from us and whilst we have no intention of moving again in the near future we would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone else.
Mr and Mrs Wright
Good Morning James,
I would like to pass on my thanks to the team who assisted with the final clearance of Queens Gardens this week and to all the staff who have worked with me on the site on previous occasions. One and all they have always worked with good humour however insurmountable the task may have seemed. It has been a pleasure to have worked with them.
I have also been contacted by Donna from Emmaus who asked me to pass on her thanks to the ‘amazing’ team who delivered the furniture etc. into their storage facilities. She was very impressed by how hard they worked and how helpful they were. I hope you will pass these comments on to the team.

The service from Hardakers was excellent from first contact through to completing my move. I will highly recommend them.
Faultless, polite, professional, extremely happy customer. Absolute first class service from initial contact to last box moved.
First class, hardworking, polite and made the day fun. Very professional.
Mr & Mrs Heap
Very good service and polite staff.
I would recommend Hardakers to anyone moving house. The removal crew were fantastic; so helpful and understanding especially as my husband has severe dementia. James the manager was extremely helpful and gave me confidence that everything would go to plan which it did.
Mr & Mrs Holmes
Hardakers Team were very efficient, on time on the day of the move and very helpful. Patiently waited as the “hand over” / keys were delayed then unpacked quickly without any damages.
Surveyor came one hour after I called, gave an on the spot quote. Removal men cheerful and helpful. All done to times given despite 200 mile move to remote location.
Brilliant & efficient.
Impressed that the men carried v. heavy Miele washer up 5 flights of stairs and they got a large sofa through a narrow doorway without damage.
