    Cheapest removal company I found and the service doesn't reflect this. Both lads were more than willing to go out of their way to help us while we were moving,which is stressful enough to anyone. Could not recommend enough. Thank you.

    The company keep in touch with you right up to the day of moving. I received a call on the morning of the move just to make sure everything was OK and ready for the guys. I was given a time of 10am but the guys arrived 15 minutes earlier. They were very careful not to damage anything and wasted no time in getting things on to the removal van. The guys were so friendly and courteous. When unloading the van they were just as careful. The whole removal was completed in 1 hr 30 mins. That was including a 35 mile journey. I would recommend this company to anyone.

    We cannot thank Jorvik enough for helping us move home. They are polite, prompt and well priced.
    Melissa is lovely and cannot do enough to help. She is always friendly, even though they are clearly very busy.
    We used the self storage as well as Jorvik removals. The self storage was clean and tidy and very secure!
    The gents who came to move our house were excellent and took great care of all our things. They also helped us out with extra boxes. Thank you!

    Jorvik removals and storage are brilliant, they arrived when they said they would and worked solidly packing all my boxes and items onto the vans. The team were excellent, friendly, professional and fun. They moved items as requested and did an excellent job at the other end. It was a cold miserable day but they were cheerful. Melissa coordinated the move seamlessly and the company are definitely to be recommended.

    This is our second move using Jorvik. As I said in my first review, save yourself stress, time and money and use Jorvik. Melissa is worth her weight in gold, that girl made everything happen, nothing was too much trouble. The lads turned up and worked like Trojans, I cannot thank them enough for all the sheer graft they put in. Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year to you all. THANK YOU

    Very happy with the two people who came to do the removals, very professional and efficient. They handled all our furniture with care and everything was strapped down and covered in protective blankets where they thought it was necessary. I'd definitely recommend them to anyone I know who're moving

    What can I say? A great team of lads that know how to get the job done. I had tonnes and tonnes of stuff to move and not once did they complain. They helped with our big move to Barnsley even though they’d been on the job all day. We appreciated the hard work and totally recommend anyone to use their services

    If we had spent thousands of pounds on a big name removal company we would not have had better service! Honestly, I cannot recommend Jorvik enough.
    Melissa gave us a call the day before the move to double-check all the details.
    On the day we had Melvyn & Daniel who just got on and emptied the house they were very friendly and efficient and packed all our items with the utmost care!
    We will definitely be recommending to friends & family.
    Many Thanks once again Jorvik

Frequently Asked Questions

If you’ve any questions for us, this is the place to find the answer. And if it’s not covered here, feel free to pick up the phone and call us…

Can I move at the Weekend?

We are able to carry out your removal at any time that is convenient for you. We don’t charge any extra for saturdays but different days and times may carry a premium to reflect the extra cost of staff.

What size of van will I get?

The size of the van is decided by our staff based on a survey of your home. It is our responsibility to get this right. Always use a company with experience and a good reputation to ensure that they will. If a survey has not been carried out, we will use the information that you have provided us with to calculate the size of van required. As long as you have been honest then it will still be our responsibility to get it right.

How long will my removal take?

There are several factors that affect the time it takes to complete a removal. The obvious ones are the number of goods and the distance they are moving. Some may be less obvious but are just as important. Simple things like having to park ten feet further from your house due to parked cars can severely change the time it takes to load or unload. Try to inform us of anything that may happen or be different on the day of your removal, even if it does not seem that important and the main hold up on removals day is receiving the keys to your new property from your agent so for small moves its sometimes better to start a little later if your not expecting to get the keys until 12pm-1pm.Usually a two bedroom house should take 4-5 hrs with no hold ups but if you give us a call we can advise you how long your move will take.

What do removal costs include?

Jorvik removals prices are tailored to your needs. Our basic service supplies you with a removal van with a crew and includes travelling and goods in transit insurance, but you may choose extra services such as packing and storage too.

How do I move house with a dog/cat?

its best to lock your pet in a single room with the least amount of items to move and clearly label the door with a sticker “Do Not Open’ then when most of the move is complete you can move into another empty room with your pet while the removals team move the last few items from the last room before relocating to your new property.

How do I pay for my removal?

Once you have accepted our Quote, we require full payment before or on the morning of your removal. This can be paid via cash, debit or credit card and BACS.

Are my goods insured?

Yes, your goods will be covered by insurance during your removal and during storage. During your removal, your goods will be insured up to £50,000 per van and during storage if you require insurance you can aquire this through insurastore.com as we are a partner so just look for our dropdown link  always read in north yorkshire. Always view the full details of insurance and the terms and conditions.

How do we pack fine arts & antiques?

We use all necessary packing materials for your goods including Paper, Bubblewrap, cardboard and foam bricks where required and we can dismantle and reassemble Grand Father clocks Ect.
