On average people only move house 8 times in their lifetime, so it’s not surprising people struggle to decide which removals company they should choose when they move. It’s not like deciding which supermarket to do your food shop in this week. When trying to find quality removal companies Bury St Edmunds, Hadley and Ottaway are an easy choice.
