India, Plymouth

Matt provided the perfect solution for our move, which was split between storage and a house sit and wasn’t straightforward. He cheerfully gave up a Saturday and worked really hard over what turned out to be a long day. He was totally calm and provided muscle where we needed it, but was happy to work with my husband and myself. He kept going when we were flagging and managed to pack our storage unit and his van with maximum efficiency. Absolutely great service...many thanks!

Jenny & Richard, Totnes

Matt was calm and conscientious in organising and packing my antique furniture. He turned a stressful situation for me into a can-do result. Nothing too much trouble and very much the reliable professional.

Anna, Totnes

Another very happy customer - thanks Matt and Mark for another successful move today. 46 minutes to load the van, drive to Ipplepen and carefully unload everything. Result! we have no hesitation recommending you guys.

Anthony, Berry Pomeroy

Matt came to the rescue! I had plans for a friend to help me move and a few days before it was to take place, an emergency came up with my friend and he had to cancel. I didn't have much time to look for another way to make it happen and I was moving on a bank holiday weekend! I quickly went online and found the simplest website, sent an email with what I needed and Matt responded quickly. Within two days we had it all set up. Matt was professional, friendly, helpful and made the move absolutely stress free. He even recommended some places in Totnes for me to try! I highly recommend Matt to help you with your move.

Thanks again for all your help - tried the Curator coffee and Annie's! Both are excellent! Thanks for the tips!

Barbara, Totnes

Thanks for all your help with our house move. You guys were simply VANTASTIC!! we didn't know anyone in the area so simply compared websites. You looked smart, slick and keenly priced and we weren't wrong! Thanks again. VERY HIGHLY recommended!

Anthony, Berry Pomeroy

Hi Matt - Just wanted to say thank you for your efficient service this morning. It was very much appreciated and we will recommend you to anyone we hear of who may be looking for a man with a van. Kind regards.

Angela, Kate & Ben, Brixham

Thanks again for the enduring good humour displayed by you and the guys on Saturday. I know that it gets a bit heavy going towards the end of a long, repetitive and tiring day but none of your heads dropped and you all made the day much easier to cope with than it might otherwise have been.

All the best too for your growing removals empire. If your service to us is anything to go by you'll have no problems getting recommendations.

Cheers and hopefully we won't need to use you again for a wee while!!

Jeff & Caroline, Kingsbridge

We used Matt to pick up a van's worth of furniture for us and found him to be very helpful, efficient and totally reliable. He delivered the items to us the following day on time and we were very happy with his service. We would definitely use him again.

Jane and Jim, Totnes

I highly recommend 'moveitwithmatt'. I recently used Matt for my house move and he was efficient, hard-working, calm and centred (a very useful attribute when moving house!), well mannered, pleasant and efficient. He just got on with the job and made my move as smooth as it possibly could have been. He was easy to contact and prompt with his responses to my emails. If I ever need anything moving again I would definitely use him again.

Hilary, Watchet

Our moving day brought with it the worst weather imaginable... Matt and his colleague Luke were absolutely fantastic - they ensured all our posessions were transported with care and attention, I would recommend them to anyone! Thanks guys...

Sam and Drummaond, Torquay

Matt, I just want to say a big THANK YOU to you and Luke for moving me (my home contents) recently from South Devon to North Somerset. It was both efficient and effective, but on top of all you were both so ready and willing to put your backs into the job. This move was a rare pleasant experience. Thank you. Mrs B.

Mrs Button, Weston-super-Mare

Matt, I wanted to say a massive *thank you!* for moving us a few weeks ago, you made the day so much easier than we could have imagined and we couldn't have asked for a more efficient service. We'll definitely recommend you to anyone we know who needs moving!

Tilly & Greg, Ivybridge

I highly recommended Move It With Matt. A super friendly personal service (very stress free which you need when moving!), great communications, flexibility and really competitive prices. If I ever move again, Move It With Matt will be the first company I call and I'd recommend them to anyone.

Hannah, Plymouth

Really The Move Matt did for us is too good for words, therefore I should stop right here… but then you wouldn’t get the details.

I’m good at details, but have found someone who is even better – namely Matt. He takes care of EVERY detail, quietly. When you are stressed, the last person you need is a pushy mover who really doesn't understand that you care about the expensive mirror you brought all the way from Cape Town. Matt not only moves fast and efficiently, he moves it all with CARE and LISTENS to all your whining about your precious stuff without even ONE complaint or nasty irritated look. By the time he had finished, I was sorry to see him go – he is just SO nice and pleasant and compassionate. He got ALL our stuff’ in to a Luton when really he could have done with half another Luton – he’s an expert packer. But that’s the end of the story – quiet, quick and efficient – done in a couple of hours. The beginning of the story is this:-

I had to move with VERY short notice and thought I could hire a van a friend was to drive. Of course it was a bank holiday…most people closed and don’t want to be bothered by a stressed out Movee. I tried the internet to get a van for my friend to drive… WHAT a fiasco.. generic emails flew in…all very polite and promising the earth, like “we’ll get back to you in 48 hours”… 48 hours!!! I had 24. So I phoned this guy called Matt. Thank GOODNESS… Matt did not moan that it was a bank holiday, he was SO kind and helpful and listened to my sob story… but it turned out he had the wrong sized van. However he leaves no stone unturned, he was willing to give business away to two other Man with Van men. No reply from the one I tried (obviously enjoying his bank holiday) and Matt himself phoned the other guy FOR me, but sadly he was busy. Oh woe…imagine all your stuff on the street.. The internet promises a van but no Lutons were available and most were closed for the hols. Then our Knight in Shining armour phoned back with an idea – he would find a Luton for us, do the search for us and drive it. ALL AT SUCH SHORT NOTICE AND SO CALMLY. Tuesday came and all my nails were bitten off… Matt phoned and they all grew back, polished at that – he got the van and would be with us, a 3 hour drive up, at 11 am. I felt the stress fly from my shoulders. And he was ON TIME.

He ALSO sorted out the company that was a good price on storage – gave me the number, not slying in on a commission thing. Matt, in short, is on time, super-efficient, hyper-helpful, incredibly-kind, non-complaining, honest, quiet and uses his initiative; he calls you back when he says he will, he goes 100 extra miles to sort out stuff that is not his job. Not only that – his price is more than fair – I know, I checked out other prices and his was The Best. He’s on my “When I Win The Lottery” list, “I will give to this generous man”. So if I were you I would choose Matt. He’s The Man. Lots of love to you Matt and again a thousand thanks… no one’s going to believe this testimonial ‘cause it’s so unbelievably TRUE.

Heather & Family, Totnes

Move It With Matt was a stress free experience and I'd highly recommend using the professional and friendly service he provides. Matt was reliable, considerate & courteous which enabled me to have an effortless move. Thanks Matt.

Naomi, Dartington

I used Move It With Matt for a move from Totnes to Oxford. He was on time, efficient, careful, and good company - the whole experience couldn't have been better. I'd thoroughly recommend him.

Jerry, Oxford

Its been a busy few weeks and as a result I've been remiss in doing something very important.... This being to say that Matt, his trusty (tardis like) van and his amazing furniture tetris skills were absolutely key for my seemingly pain free and easy house move from Plym to Exeter (despite my broken elbow). 110% Customer satisfaction !!!

Emma, Exeter

Matt moved our things carefully and cheerfully for a very reasonable price. He was efficient and punctual, and always answered our queries promptly even when on holiday in Spain. I have already recommended him to several people.

Luke, Dartmouth

I recently moved from Exeter to Bristol and used Move it with Matt to move all my worldly goods (of which there were many!).

I have to say that I was blown away by Matt's professionalism, courtesy, punctuality, friendliness & patience, plus his "never say die" attitude.

Matt managed to fit everything into his Tardis-like van quickly & efficiently & unloaded at the other end in the sane manner, even managing to overcome obstacles such as my sofa being too big to fit through the front door. He was a real pleasure to spend time with & turned what was going to be a major stressful event into a pleasant day out.

I would highly recommended "Move it with Matt" to anyone.

Luisa, Bristol

Just wanted to thank you for your excellent help on Wednesday. You arrived on time and carried out the requested moving jobs in a cheerful manner and very efficiently. I shall have no hesitation in recommending your helpful service to all my friends. You're my "man with a van" and, who knows, maybe I shall need your help again at some time.

You deserve to have a very successful business.

Rosie Williams, Totnes

Thank you so much for your speedy response to our initial enquiry and being able to collect our two sofas at such short notice. Your whole approach was extremely professional, very competitively priced and it was apparent that we were in a very safe pair of hands. Highly recommended!

Jill & Barnaby, Manaton

Just a quick belated message to thank you for all your hard work when you helped me to move into my new flat on Tuesday 17th January.

You and your brother were so helpful and courteous and nothing was too much trouble. Though you struggled to move more than you had originally agreed, you did so with good grace in spite of the stairs and narrow doorways. You were happy to unhinge the doors to ensure the furniture and appliances were not damaged and for that I am grateful.

I have distributed your business cards and leaflets and will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who wants a 'Mr Shifter'.

Once again, thank you so much.

Yvonne Immelman, Torquay

Matt did us proud, moved a very important high value set of shoji screens to London for us at literally the last minute, this week - thanks Matt!

Michael - The Shoji Studio, Totnes

Made the process of moving completely stress and hassle free, actually moving became a pleasure. Would use the company again in a heartbeat. Highly recommend! Thanks!

David & Caroline, Bath

We used Move It With Matt on several occasions when we needed to move our two sons' belongings to university in Plymouth.

Matt was fantastic and made the whole process simple and quick. Not only did he take the hassle out of the occasion but he was also very reliable, helpful and friendly. We would have no hesitation in recommending him and certainly we will use him again.
