Superb service

I cannot thank Pete Holbrook Removals enough. Having had their team move us from the mainland to the Isle of Wight, store items for us whilst we completed, move us into our new home and consolidate furniture from another property… it could have gone horribly wrong. It didn’t and everything was spot on. Fantastic team, really helpful and great value. Thank you again! I’d highly recommend this local firm .

Removal from Southampton to Freshwater

Right from the first phone call we made to Glen, we had first class service and support.
Faye was on the end of the phone to help with our queries and when we had to keep changing the date,
they were so helpful and reassuring.
The team that moved us were efficient, pleasant and nothing was too much trouble.
We would not hesitate to use them again and have already recommended them to some friends who have also used them.
We moved 12 weeks ago and are now settled.
Due to their careful handling of our furniture and belongings not one item was damaged or broken.

Thank you Glen, Faye and the team.

Isle of Wight facebook newbies forum

“Folks, just a little feedback, I have asked for recommendations a number of times on this forum and members have always been kind enough to reply with suggestions.

We asked for recommendations on removal companies and received a number of names, most we dismissed immediately because they wanted payment in full up front and that made us uncomfortable, that left two who were similar in price and did not demand prepayment, one other requirement we did have was the need for good communication and this led us to Pete Holbrook removals where we dealt with Fay at their office, she was 100% on all calls and emails.

Our goods were stored at a security depot where door and combination lock codes were needed and all this was handled by Fay and the crew concerned. Our goods were collected on Tues last and delivered last Weds, the crew was polite and very helpful, recognising that the company has to pay ferry fairs and fuel we offered a substantial deposit up front and this was refused and we paid AFTER our goods were delivered here (on the day).

Its unlikely we will ever move again, this is our final stop but if we did I would certainly use Pete Holbrook again and recommend them without hesitation.”

Brilliant removal company

Brilliant removal company, I really cannot recommend them highly enough – we’ve done 3 house moves with them now and I wouldn’t use anyone else on this or the north island. They’re friendly, well organised, efficient, extremely helpful and accommodating and always good humoured – exactly what you need when moving house. You won’t regret choosing Holbrooks. Thank you very, very much to Fay, Olly, Simon, Rich and Harry for always making our moves so much easier than we anticipate.

Pete Holbrook Removals have been brilliant

Pete Holbrook Removals have been brilliant from the minute I sent my first enquiry message. We have moved over 30 times between us and these guys are the best we have ever used. Fay in the office gets back to you really quickly, answers every question and is really friendly. The guy that came to do our quote was professional, helpful and said our stuff would be “looked after like a baby”…..after a terrible experience with previous movers it was this line that sold Pete Holbrook to us. Moving day was the hottest of the year and all our furniture is big heavy stuff, the guys were amazing, calm, patient, didn’t get annoyed with anything at all even though our new doorway is very awkward for the size of our furniture. They worked so hard and you can tell by the way they approach things that they really know what they are doing. Amazing team of professional, friendly people that kept to their word and really looked after our things, hopefully we won’t have to move again but if we do we won’t use anyone else now.

Carefully and efficiently

Making the move from the island back to the mainland this time on my own was a very daunting thought, but this company were absolutely the best. They packed and unloaded everything carefully and efficiently; Glen and the team checked with me as to where things needed to go. They dismantled, reassembled lifted and shifted some heavy and awkward items and were just so pleasant. Fay gave me lots assurance along the way that everything would be fine and I thank her for that. Would recommend this company every time, thank you Fay, Glen and the crew.

Pete Holbrook Removals have just moved us from the Isle of Wight to Pitlochry in Scotland. It was a complicated move spread over three days and we had to change the dates a couple of times. Our main contact (Faye) was understanding, patient, exceedingly helpful and always polite. When we suggested a last minute change to the actual time of departure the driver and his colleague were flexible and accommodating. The move was carried out quickly and efficiently. The team were professional, efficient, polite and friendly. They provided a first class service and were very good value. My wife and I can recommend Faye, Glen and their team

Mavis & Brian York

My husband and I would like to thank you for the efficient and successful move that your team did for us on 3/4 December 2012. The gents that came along on Monday 3rd were very good, quick and efficient with no problems. They then delivered to us the following day with the same efficiency and were pleasant, helpful and a joy to meet. We would certainly recommend you to anybody wanting a smooth move from one place to another.
Thank you all. Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year

Tenye Veronica Williams

Dear One and All at Holbrook,

You were right! Now the furniture is in, there’s hardly any room for us. We’re still sorting through and getting rid of stuff. It’s hard to part with items that we’ve had for 50+ years.
We must compliment you on your professionalism and good humour. The days, both ends, finished in a good humoured way as well as starting in a friendly and relaxed way. Even though the stairs did not diminish.
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year – if you need a reference you can call on us. there was no damage or breakage and we are very grateful. Thank you all very much, not forgetting the ladies in the office. The only casualties were of my own making. I can’t find the keys to the grandfather clock and corner cupboard. I’m hoping they’ll turn up.
P.S. Wrapping was excellent.
Thank you all, once again.

Tracy Haylock

To the Holbrook Team,

We cannot praise and thank you all enough. Our move to I.O.W at the beginning of July 2017 was a huge decision and change for us and we had some worries.
From the moment Rich, Simon and Harry arrived all our worries were gone. They did a brilliant job! They worked so hard and had efficiently emptied our home of 16 years in just 4 hours and we’re on their way. The lads were always cheerful, friendly and professional. the way they packed and loaded the lorry only comes with knowledge and experience.
When I arrived on the Island late the next day, the lads had moved us into our new home. I can imagine how hard they must have worked again, as access is tricky.
From first contact to the removal, the service was seamless and professional. Excellent value for money.
I will have no hesitation in recommending Holbrooks. Our sincerest thanks to Faye, Glenn, Rich, Simon and Harry. Holbrooks Removals is a credit to you all.

Dear Fay,

I meant to email you some weeks ago to say thank you so much for the great service we received when you moved our kitchen from Hampshire to the Island. It was executed exactly as you said it would be and we were all very impressed with the care and consideration you gave to something that was important to us whilst being rather a small job for yourselves.
We would recommend you to others
Best regards


We moved from Cheshire and used the company over a three day period. They came on time, actually early, worked very hard and were pleasant and friendly. We have a large piece that had to come in over a balcony, not envisaged in the first place, but true to their word they came back and got it in when more hands were available. Extremely good value for money, I cannot thank them all enough from Fay in the office to “young” Harry. 


Pauline Hall

Dear Pete Holbrook, family and crew
There can’t be many people who have to do two separate moves just one week apart. On 17th July we moved my 89 year old mother (who had had a heart attack two weeks prior to the move) from the mainland to Ryde and on the 24th of July, my husband and I also moved from Farnham to Ryde.
I was so worried about the moves, we had been in our house for 28 years and had accumulated a lot of stuff, I had to nurse my mother and pack my house up in the morning and move on to packing hers up in the afternoon. It was quite a walk from my mother’s front door to the available parking area and I thought this might be a problem for the men. I was worried that my stuff wouldn’t fit in the truck, frankly, I was so stressed I was worried about everything!
On my mother’s moving day I was up at 4.00am worried sick, I paced the house. At 7.45am, precisely on stated time, the crew arrived and within half an hour all my worries had gone. They were helpful, happy, and professional, they cleared the house efficiently, nothing was a problem or too much trouble, Harry even helped my son empty the dust bag of the hoover into a bin bag.
One week on and it was our move. I worried no more, I knew what a fabulous team would be with us every step of the way, and as before the smart uniformed crew arrived spot on time and made everything go flawlessly.
So I just want to say a big thank you to you all. I’m telling everyone how wonderful you were.
If anyone wants a personal recommendation just give them my details and they can talk to me. Oh, and as a footnote, not one broken or damaged item in two moves.
Well done chaps!


Dear Faye and Peter,

Now that everything is all organised, I wanted to write and thank you for doing such a fantastic job helping to move my father’s things to Ireland. The fact that you made it completely stress free for me and that you have all been so pleasant and professional to deal with, made a huge impact on me.
As for the two lads…wow…they do you credit ! They arrived exactly on time, were immaculately dressed and did an incredible job manoeuvring the truck down the hill towards the barn!
Everything was done calmly, and always with a smile on their faces. It really helped because my father was terribly distressed seeing his ‘home’ dismantled on the IOW; it brought back all the wonderful memories of life with my mother who only died 3 years ago.
So, I thank you and the lads from the bottom of my heart for making what was a daunting task for me, not so bad!
PS And not even a light bulb was broken!
Yours sincerely

Dr J G Munro

Dear Team,
Removal from Wooton Bridge to Queens Road, Ryde.
Just a short note to thank you for doing a splendid job in relocating our furniture and goods on Saturday 4th of January 2014.
In spite of it having been a dismal day weather wise, you did extremely well, cheerfully carried on whilst disregarding the wind and rain, and not as much as a scratch on any of our things. Beth and I are most grateful to you for this and we will certainly extend a strong recommendation regarding your service to anyone needing to move house.
May 2014 be a great year for the business, and to each one of you, all the best and may you have a happy and healthy 2014.
Kind regards
Yours sincerely


Hi Faye,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the guys for such a smooth process in our recent move. From the minute they arrived to the moment they left the boys were professional, friendly, and so helpful. They worked incredibly hard and it was because of them that my stress which had been building over the course of the week was completely alleviated. Please pass on my thanks and tell them that I have been out to replenish my tea caddy they do drink a lot of tea!!
I will certainly be recommending you!

Susie and Mike Morton

Dearest Faye,

We cannot thank and praise your company enough, in your efforts on moving us from the mainland, to the island. The boys arrived promptly, and got cracking on filling up the lorry, to be back for the booked ferry crossing in time. Everything arrived unscathed, and was unpacked very quickly. Nothing missing or damaged, just perfect. We are impressed at the organisational skills of all involved, and the cheerfulness of the guys, especially when the bacon rolls arrived! We have no plans for moving again, but if anyone needs a removal firm, you are the one we will highly recommend.
Once again, many thanks, and yes we are now settling in nicely!
All the best

Mr & Mrs T Field

This is a short note to thank you for the excellent service you have provided in moving both our mother and ourselves from High Wycombe out to the island.

All of your teams were very professional and careful with our furniture with nothing being damaged. This also included use of your storage facilities. All teams arrived on time and were extremely efficient and friendly. Also many thanks to Fay back in the office for her help with all of the coordination and arrangements.
We would have no hesitation in recommending your services to other people.
Best regards,

Bill Budge

I can’t say enough good things about this company or recommend them highly enough but the are faultless. From office staff through to the removal boys, everyone is highly professional, hard working and friendly. Our completion day was an extremely bad one but Glenn and the boys were fantastic and stopped on late to get the job done. They even let my little boy help and go for a ride in the lorry.

Pete Holbrook Removals have been amazing from start to finish and we can’t thank you enough.

Pauline Cox

Right from the prompt quote from Fay, the whole move was managed in a friendly and efficient way. The team turned up first thing and loaded the lorry very quickly packing everything in safely, so everything arrived in one piece and undamaged. What could have been a very stressful day moving in the heatwave from the mainland to the island was made such less so by the attitude of Glenn and the lads. Thank you.
