Hi Martin

Just to say we were really pleased with the service today. Paul and Paul were first class!! I’ve just done an online payment to you.

Best wishes

Clare

Thanks Martin, I will pass this to finance for payment. I appreciate all the help your guys have given us over the last few weeks, they have made the move so much smoother. Next time we need furniture moving, you will be the only company on the list.

Cheers,

Lynn

We used A Man With Vans Cardiff to move a large van load of furniture from one side of Cardiff to the other. They were ahead of schedule, incredibly efficient and very responsive. I would heartily recommend them to anyone.

All the best

Martin,

Thank you so much for making it work this morning. Your guys were absolutely amazing, really friendly, really professional and incredibly efficient. I’m so grateful, I only wish I’d found you in the first place!

All the best,

I had to drop you a line, to say thank you. Martin and Paul made the job easy. They weren’t daunted by three flights of stairs and were so effective. Will definitely recommend you.

Martin,

Excellent service. Excellent value for money. So friendly and willing to help. Would definitely recommend this company.

To whom it may concern:

We have used “A Man with Vans Cardiff” and Martin Duggan for the last 24 months within our business. In that time I have always found Martin and his company very helpful and able to react to our business needs. Martin has a very can do attitude, and able to go above what is required. We have always found him professional and honest to deal with, and would not hesitate recommending “A man with vans Cardiff” to any other company to use.

Thank you so much for all your help, you made the move go very smoothly. Your service was great and your price was fair. Our daughter will be moving soon and she will be using your services too.

Good morning Martin,

Thank you for your email. The move went very well – your team couldn’t have been any more helpful when they arrived in Cardiff – they were brilliant. I also received the same comments from my colleague in Bristol office.

Hi Martin,

Just wanted to say thanks for being so flexible yesterday with our move. The boys were excellent, really helpful and professional.

Martin,

You were right and your men worked very hard and were very efficient. Fantastic value for money, thank you

Thank you both, it’s unbelievable, what you did today was super quick!

You were just so efficient and professional.

We chose wisely!

Had to text, to say thank you for such a proficient and professional service today. Will definitely recommend and if needed, use your services again in the future…..

Morning, I’m weary today – I can only imagine how tired your bodies were after all those stairs and heavy objects. Thanks so much for an amazing job. I’ve spread the word round the BBC. I’ll be in touch when I’ve found a solution to the dresser. All the best, Willa

Thank you A Man With Vans for an amazing service, warm & friendly and very thorough and would definitely use you again!

Thanks for the excellent service today, very prompt, friendly, and professional at good rates. I would definitely use you again. I shall let my friends know about your business.

Hi Martin

That’s a super thank you very much. I’ve sent the payment now.

Best wishes

Thanks Martin,

You and your boys made a difficult move easy because nothing was a problem for you. We shall certainly recommend you to others when we get the chance.

Hi Martin,

Thank you and your guys for helping move yesterday. First class, efficient service again.

Regards,

Martyn

Martin,

Thank you for doing the move, you were excellent.

Martin,

I just wanted you to know, how grateful I am for the move over the weekend, you took it in your stride and nothing was a problem

Dear Martin,

Your initial friendly but efficient and helpful manner impressed me. Your quote was accurate and your team were efficient yet careful when transporting every item.

At a time when I needed to move quickly and on a budget your company helped and everything ran smoothly.

I would certainly recommend you and be in touch come the day I need the goods transported to Cumbria.

Many thanks again and I wish you all the best in your business.

Dear Martin and partner riding shotgun!!

Thank you both so much for your friendly and professional service yesterday. My family and I will keep your contact numbers to hand on to others and keep for the future. Best wishes to you.

We thought to drop you a line, just to say thanks. What a happy team you guys are, nothing was a problem and you made everything look easy. We will spread the word, you were excellent.

Hey, thanks for all your help with the move last week – Martin, mark and Tyler you were all fab and lovely.

Hi Martin,

I’ve just come back from the flat after showing the estate agent, round. It looks remarkably different and clean; your team did an excellent job. May your business flourish?

What an excellent service. Martin was able to deliver his services at very short notice. He turned up when he said he would and made sure our things were protected. Fabulous value for money and trustworthy. Would definitely use man with vans again!

Hi Martin

Just to say thanks to you and your team for all you have done for us so far. Everyone has sung your praises. Sorry I couldn’t stop to chat but I had people around me awaiting your response.

Within an hour of requesting a quote from A Man with Vans Cardiff, Martin had arranged a site visit and gave us a very competitive quote with no haggling required. The boys worked extremely hard and went over and above on the day itself, in fact they were so efficient and organised we asked them back the week later to move additional furniture.

Would highly recommend for a friendly and professional service, and will definitely be contacting them the next time we need anything moved.

Martin,

I can’t thank you enough, for giving up your Saturday afternoon. For what effectively, was a mercy mission. You saved me in three hours.

On 20th July 2016 I had to move house in the midst of a relative being seriously ill in hospital. I could not recommend these guys enough – everything was done in around an hour and a half and made very easy at a difficult time. I would not hesitate to use again and will be recommending them to everyone I know.

Great service and a very nice man!

Fantastic service, highly recommended

You were the best value for money, thank you for your service

Thanks Martin, I will be recommending you from now on

Best price I could get, thanks

Martin, you were recommended and I can see why, thank you.

Thanks Martin for doing this at short notice, we rang around and yours was the best price too. I will need you again next week.

Aw thanks Martin, sorry we didn’t mention it was 3 floors up and that there was more items than we first thought. Great job though & done in quick time too

Never mind a man with a van. You’re a man with a van with a brain. Thank you for your honesty and for saving us so much money. We will be recommending you to everyone from now on

I will be recommending you to everyone who needs to move anything! No fuss, just hard working and happy to do it. You were great and thanks again

Thanks Martin never thought you would get it done in a day. Will be using you again for another job in a few weeks time.

We never realised the amount of stuff we actually had, didn’t know there was quite so much. Sorry it was such a long day but thank you very much for sticking with us Martin

Great job completed on time in nasty weather, thanks. I have already recommended you to my brother, for his move next week. Once again thanks Martin.

Thank you for your flexibility and assistance, re-arranging your appointments and taking the strain out of a difficult last minute move

Thanks Martin, your quote was the best price and you still shaved another £20 off on the day. Just great, easy, friendly service
