Hi there,
Just wanted to say that the chaps on Tuesday were fantastic
I really can’t express how helpful and thoughtful they were and they made the move so much easier
Pls pass in my gratitude again to all three, Sam, Jimmy, and Ian B

Hello Richard,

Just a few lines to say thanks to the three guys who helped move my mums stuff this morning. They did so efficiently and promptly. They were pleasant and cheerful. I was pleased they took great care in the new house to cover the carpets and to ensure no damage was done to the walls as they lugged furniture around. Everything went smoothly. And of course thank you to you too, as ever.
Until the next move. But not for a few more years yet I hope!
Thanks Richard.
Just wanted to say that both Steve and Ian have been amazing. They are a true credit to your company. Couldn’t have asked for better guys to help me move. They made a very stressful situation bearable. Please thank them again for me


Morning Richard,

We would  like to say a big  thank you to all the guys , Sam Jimmy Ian and Ian for their fantastic work for making our move run smoothly they are a credit to your business .

Would definitely recommend you and your team .

Thanks again
Paul & Gail Woodgate


I can’t praise the service I had from Hardacres highly enough. A relatively straightforward local move, but moving house is always fraught with danger! Nothing more satisfying than when the removal team are on-site ten minutes early, and ready to get started. Proficient, and professional and obviously experienced- still not entirely sure how they got the settee into the new house. But they did, and without even damaging woodwork!

I just wish that I had know Hardacres when my children were young, as their efficiency would have been a great help

Hi Richard 

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your boys for everything. Move went really well owing to your team’s professionalism.

Dear Richard and Jaqui, 
We Would like to express our thanks to you and your highly skilled, polite, professional team who moved us from Cottingham to Coniston on 10th August. They worked tirelessly on what must have been one of the hottest days of the year, nothing was too much trouble for them, they provided an excellent service, and are a credit to your business. 
Thankyou to Sam, James and Jim for making sure our moving day went smoothly . 
Kind Regards, 
Carole and Dave

Thank you so much team.

From the initial conversations and planning down to the relocation from West Ella to Welton. You arrived with a calm, friendly and reassuring manner even though it was a horribly wet and cold day. Both chaps worked extremely hard throughout the day and even managed to get the large sofa and piano into the property without any damage. You made us relax and really helped alleviate the stress. We will certainly recommend your team to our friends and we will be certainly using you again when we move back again into West Ella sometime in the New Year.
Thanks again to a great team.

Mr & Mrs Hakes

Morning Richard

I’d just like to thank you for the beautiful flowers you all sent to us first thing this morning.  What a lovely way to put a smile on someone’s face when their stood in the middle of mess and not knowing where to start. All of your guys have been fantastic. They showed understanding and great empathy and are all very professional. They knew how to put a smile on our faces when we obviously looked like we needed it.
Also a massive thank you to you for making our move possible and as stress free as possible under the circumstances we was put into.
Many thanks once again.  

Kind Regards
Nadine Field

Thank you all for your excellent service and the smooth running of our move last Friday.  Will you give the guys a big thank you too in what were extreme weather conditions.

First I’d just like to thank you and the team for your service helping me and the family move on the 29th May. Your team on the day were superb and a credit to your business.



Thank you so much for your excellent service on moving me to my new home last week. The team at Hardakers are lovely and also a big thank you to my two drivers who worked so hard to get me moved in.


Good Morning Richard,

Best Regards,

Paul and Elvie – 04/02/2020

Dear James

I wanted to say thank you very much. The move has been completed. Your people have done a fantastic job – fast, helpful and friendly. A special thanks to Lee and Callum. Despite their best efforts the sofa didn’t didn’t get into the London.

All the best – and thank you and Hayleigh for this such a smooth and (from our point of view) easy move.

All the best,

John – 24/09/2019

Just wanted to email to say thank you so much for the help that hardakers gave us today with our move. They arrived promptly this morning and worked tirelessly throughout the day to ensure our move went without a glitch.

They were both so professional and hard working. It honestly made moving feel like a breeze! They are a credit to your firm.

Thanks again

Sarah Saint – 06/09/19

A very big thank you to James, Jamie and all the lads who did an amazing job yesterday with our house move!

What a great set of lads who made a very stressful day a bit more bearable! We will definitely be recommending you to family and friends 🏡

Thanks so much,

Donna Lyon – 22/06/19

This review is on behalf of my sister and brother-in-law… Janice & Steve Brentano.

On 19th June 2019, Steve and his colleague moved us from Westella to Swanland. 
Both men worked tirelessly to move us and completed our move with professionalism and courtesy.

We were absolutely amazed by the efforts that the they both put in, and completed our move with ease, and humour. 

Absolutely amazing service, wonderful attitude throughout the whole day. Such hard working, professional men!

Thank you so much for making such a stressful circumstance into a positive situation. We truly appreciate the work you put in, and would highly recommend you and your company to anyone who is moving home.

Thanks again, the Brentano family xxxx

Thanks so much,

Glynis Waite-Precious – 20/06/19

Firstly can I say just how brilliant the two movers we had last week were.

Made everything so easy.

Thanks so much,

Andy – 03/06/19

Hello, Just a message to say thank you very much for the move last week.

Jamie and Scott worked really hard and were really calm and relaxed, making the day run smoothly. Thanks very much.

Thanks so much,

Andy – 01/06/19

Used Hardakers end of March, great service, great price, from James popping around to quote with a positive attitude and no fuss (compared to their rivals).

To Steve and jimmy who worked non stop (down 3 flights of stairs and back up 2)and were a pleasure to be around! Worth every penny 

Top lads, top service, top job!

Thanks so much,

Paul Cook – 30/05/19

Fantastic service and good value for money.

Ian and Steve worked tirelessly all day… Absolute champions 👍

Thanks so much,

A fantastic team effort to all involved with our house move from Hull to Wynyard. Special mention to Jimmy and Jamie, thanks guys for all your hard work.

Best wishes Ray and Rita Latus

Thanks so much,

Ray & Rita Latus – 14/05/19

Just a belated email to thank you for a smooth and trouble-free house move! 

Scott and Ian were superb – friendly and organised and made the move completely stress free.  They are a true asset to your company. My son was so impressed with the service that he will be booking you for his next house move!

All the best to you all.

Thanks so much,

Karen Moore – 26/04/19

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.  


Best Wishes,

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.


Thanks again,

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

Best wishes,

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!)

Thanks again,

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.


Kind regards.

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!


Many thanks,

Liz Cogan

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.


Many regards,

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. 


Thank you,

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

Thanks again,

Mrs Shepherd

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.

Thanks again,

Hudgell Solicitors

Hi James,

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.

Kind Regards,

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.

With thanks

Angela Dunn

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.

Thanks again


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.

Thank you

Carly Stokes

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

Thank you

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

Many thanks

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.

Kind Regards

Mat Bunting & Amanda Hart .

I Used Hardakers for 2 moves via storage, efficient, friendly team with no damage to any items. Would highly recommend.

Kind Regards

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.

Kind Regards

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.

Kind Regards

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.

Kind Regards

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.

Kind Regards

Fantastic service from Richard, Jackie and the boys (Sam, Jimmy, Ian and Luke) at Hardakers 

Absolutely first class from beginning to end. The entire team made a stressful situation for us much more manageable. All involved from office to crew were thoroughly professional, flexible and courteous throughout and the boys who moved our possessions did so in good time, with great care and good humour. 

We would have no hesitation in recommending Hardakers.  

Great job guys. Thank you all for an amazing job well done. 

Gary & Anne Barnett – 16/01/21

Hi Richard/Jackie

I just wanted to say a big thank you to you both and the chaps that moved my mom on Tuesday and Wednesday.  You have been extremely good to us allowing us to change our dates and the chaps who packed her up and moved her had a lot more to do that I expected and did a great job.  It has all been very stressful for her so I am pleased that getting her out of the house has been sorted.  Thanks again.  I will give you a call if and when we ever manage to sell ours. 

Victoria Voase

S.Voase Builders – 21/01/21

All four are a credit to your company!

Thank you again

Heidi Burke – 15/02/2021

Hi Richard,

Just wanted to let you know what a credit to Hardakers Steve and the team who moved us last Thursday were. They worked like trojans and got us set up nicely before they left. They were very accommodating and sorted everything out that came their way. My wife and I could not thank them enough.

Once again thanks to Hardakers and we shall certainly be recommending you to anyone we know who is moving in the foreseeable future.


Paul and Julie – 09/03/2021

Hi Richard

Everything went really well this time. The men were fantastic. We are really tired now and will take a few days to recover from the stress. Hardakers have been great as usual, and I will be pleased to recommend to anyone. That team of men should be cherished they work so incredibly hard. Thanks!

Andrew Pickard – 22/06/21


Hardakers are brilliant. I rang different companies for quotes and when I rang Hardakers they were so friendly and professional. I think it was the managing director who I spoke to. we had cheaper quotes from other companies but I got the impression that Hardakers would be the best option as they were very organised and professional and nothing was too much trouble.
We had Jimmy Steele, Ian Bucknall and Sam Knight to help us move and they were BRILLIANT. Everyone kept telling me how stressful it is to move but they took the stress out of it. we paid extra for the packing service too and it was honestly the best money we have ever spent. the guys were amazing and worked so hard! they are a credit to the company!
I work in retail and understand what a difference good customer service makes and this company from the top down are spot on. thank you so much. 
 Lucy Harrison – 24/06/21



Hi Richard

Your chaps today were outstanding. 😁 They even fixed the feet back on a set of drawers and fixed my daughter’s mirror. Really good job. Very polite and professional. Thanks again…hopefully we will complete on Tuesday and be able to actually move in.

Tonya – 25/06/21


Hi Richard,

Just to let you know that Sam and his assistant have packaged my Collection and have just now left for FedEx. I must say that I was amazed how quickly and professionally they went about the job. Both a real credit to Hardakers. Finally, thank you once again for your service Richard which I very greatly appreciate.

I shall certainly be recommending your company.

Warmest Wishes,

Stewart Alexander – 25/06/21


I would like to recommend the excellent moving service provided by Hardakers. They made the experience of moving less stressful and as painless as it is possible to do. The crew worked extremely hard throughout the day and all of them were very pleasant, professional and competent. Nothing was too much for them, they kept checking all was well with us and communicated at every step of the way. They did everything that could be expected and more. A very impressive service that I would certainly use again.

Dr. Andrew Wilson – 28/06/21

Hello Richard,

We just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with how our move was handled on Tuesday. Jim, Dylan (Bob!) and Jim were brilliant, they worked nonstop, were polite, considerate and nothing was too much trouble.
Thank you.
Best wishes

Ros & Martin Grewer – 01/07/21

Morning Richard.

We would just like to thank you again so much for all the help and support you, Jaquie and Sam gave to us through a very difficult and stressful time. We will never forget how much you did for us. The lads who helped transport load and unload were amazing, polite,  professional and managed to make us laugh along the way.  Nothing, absolutely nothing fazed them and they were brilliant to work with. Sam lifted our sadness so much and because of that we had total faith in Hardakers. There are just not enough words to say how thankful we are to you.  

Lyn Mason – 01/07/21

Excellent work by both men , highly recommend and if I move again I would like the same team !

Mr Brewer – 03/07/21

Hi Jackie
Just want to say a big thank you for moving us yesterday.
Your team were very professional in the way that they went about moving us. It made a stressful day less stressful for us.
Thanks again

Ivan Prince – 06/07/21

Dear Richard,

I just wanted to say I genuinely can’t thank you and your team enough… Firstly for digging me out of such a hole and then making what can be such a difficult and stressful life event, a total pleasure.
The lads were exceptional and did an absolutely outstanding job.
They were so professional, but also wonderfully friendly, helpful and just really really good at what they do.
I can’t wait to catch up with them all in 12 months!
Very best wishes and hope you are managing to get a bit of down time in the sunshine.

Huge thanks.

Roni, Jack & Nate – 06/07/21

I cannot thank you Jacqui enough for everything you have done and the men were amazing . James D , Dilyon , and Ian R . It made my life so much easier and they were so kind and thoughtful.

Susan Coulthard – 07/07/21

Hardakers completed our home move in June 2021. From the communication before the moving day right down to the day itself nothing was too much trouble. The guys were so professional and hardworking they made the day go by with minimal stress. I would not hesitate to recommend them or to use them again if we decide to move home.
Laura Daniels – 11/07/21

Hi Richard 

Thanks for all your teams work and patience moving us to Cottingham. We couldn’t have wished for a better set of workers they never stopped, and nothing was a problem even the 2 to 3 hour wait for the money transfer. Please pass on our thanks and be assured that we will strongly recommend you to anyone who is thinking of moving.

Thanks again

John & Margaret – 13/07/21

Sat in my new house this morning with a coffee feeling very relaxed because the guys at Hardakers did such an amazing job yesterday that we can afford to chill out. I thought moving day was going to be really stressful but James, Jimmy and the 2 Ian’s took the stress right out of it for us. I imagined us to be still putting beds up at midnight but by 4 in the afternoon they had all our stuff in, beds put back up for us they even had our sons swing and slide set back up in the new garden. Absolutely worth their weight in gold! It would have taken us weeks to get around to doing some of the jobs. Highly recommend to anyone moving to get the professionals in. Thank you very much guys 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

JoJo Londesbrough – 18/07/21 


A big thank you to Sam, Ian B and James D for the excellent removal service provided last Friday.

Moved two weeks ago and were delighted with the Hardakers team we had: efficient, calm, with excellent manners. Just what we needed after a very stressful time buying our new house. Thank you all.
Simona Rizzardi – 03/08/21

Good morning
Just a note to thank you for your services.
Your guys were helpful and efficient and helped us through a few stressful days.
The guys who travelled down with our gear were amazingly helpful and considerate, particularly after such a long early drive. The team was Stave Powell, Sam, James Donnelly, Ian Bucknell and a special thank you to Steve and Ian as they delivered the 2nd day.


Mike Brown – 07/09/21

Just wanted to let you know what a fantastic team we had Monday; James D , Ian B, Ian R and Daniel. They were a godsend and we could not have done it without them. They overcame every hurdle and worked their socks off. It was so much appreciated!!

Sarah – 11/09/21

Being a military family we have moved a lot and have never had such a great service from a removal company. We used hardakers for a long distance move from hull to Hampshire and They were a godsend, we could not have done it without them. They even helped find a first aid kit in their cab when my 3yr old cut the end of her toe off in the garden and we where all in a bit of a panic. I’ve never seen a bunch of lads work so hard! Thank you so much 😊

Amy Markham – 17/09/21

Many thanks for your assistance yesterday.
Your men were fantastic, a real credit to your company.

Kind Regards

Alan and Sarah – 29/09/21

I am writing to let you know how impressed I was with your men when they packed and removed my furniture yesterday and today. They were professional in every way and treated both me and my friend with courtesy and respect and also with a bit of humour which always helps
A job very well done.
The tenant has told me just now that she has found a suitable property to rent and may be able to move out in 2 weeks, much earlier than I had expected. Thanks to Sam Knight, Ian Bucknall, and Mike Clarke.

Jenny Wilson – 30/09/21

Morning Richard,

I would just like to express our thanks and appreciation for the fantastic job your four chaps did on Friday moving us from Fishlake to Driffield; James Donnelly, James Rout, Lee Barham and Sam Knight. After all the hassle we have had getting to the moving point, the actual move couldn’t have gone any better. I will certainly recommend your company if I know anyone else moving in this area.

Once again, thank you very much.

Liz and Steve Webster – 05/10/21

The team did a fantastic job on September 24th. They truly are professionals, expert at what they do.

Kind Regards

Dawn Sewell – 06/10/21

Family run business with solid values that takes care of their customers. They did a wonderful job packing, storing and then moving my father’s flat contents. Everyone we interacted with was great. I strongly recommend this firm and would use them again if needed.

John Thickett – 06/10/21

Just a message to say a big thank for your patience and understanding during this difficult move. All of your boys worked so hard yesterday, very patient with us, an absolute credit to your company. We really appreciate everything they did. I can’t tell you how good it felt to wake up in our new home this morning. Finally after months of stress, felt like a kid on Christmas morning. 

Kindest regards,

Sandra  & John – 19/10/21

Mr & Mrs Harrison – 27/10/21


Just to say many thanks to you and your team for a very efficient move, we have no problems and would highly recommend you.

Richard – 15/11/21


Hello Jacqueline and Sam,

Now that we are in a settled I wanted to thank you for all you did when moving us.    The guys were so polite and helpful, nothing was a problem and in spite of a few unexpected issues(forklift key hunt etc) everything was taken in your stride.    So well done for being a great team (Sam, Steve, Ian B, James D, & James R)  and thank you for making a stressful time much less stressful.

I do wonder if Sam needs to review his career though as his singing abilities were quite impressive lol.

Take care now and have a great Christmas.

Kind Regards

Heather Nixon – 23/11/21



I cannot recommend Hardakers highly enough. From the very first meeting with Sam they were absolutely professional and very accommodating. The movers who turned up on moving day were fantastic, friendly and helpful. Typically the move was plagued with problems outside of our control but the Hardakers Team ensured that the stress was kept to a minimum. They are brilliant and worth every penny.

Michael Norfolk – 27/11/21


We would highly recommend -the team worked like trojans!
Friendly, professional and extremely hardworking.
They made the whole move (which included moving a grand piano 200 miles) much easier and in less time than we thought possible.
A great team effort.
Hilary Usher – 01/12/21

Good Morning Richard; this is Viv regarding the trip to Scotland for my sister. I just want to say thank you so much for all your help and advice, it’s all finally sorted, the stuff is on its way to Scotland as we speak, including the stuff from Sigglesthorne… So we won’t be needing your company services. But I am so grateful that there was someone out there who did everything they could for someone they didn’t know in a very difficult situation. It kind of restores your faith in human nature, which in this day and age is a rare thing. Thank you again & Merry Christmas. 

Viv – 04/12/21

Mrs Dent

First class, hardworking, polite and made the day fun. Very professional.

Mr & Mrs Heap

Very good service and polite staff.

Ms Unwin

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.

Mr Hill

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.

Mr Lewis

Brilliant & efficient.

Deborah Arnett

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.
