What Our Customers Think...

We couldn’t pick one fault with this removal company. We discussed our requirements with Holly, who was so friendly and made us feel really valued. Her communication with us felt so personal and welcoming.

Then came our house removals day, one big truck and a smaller van which met our requirements perfectly. All three of the lads, Dan, Ben and the other lad (I’m sorry we’ve forgotten his name) were brilliant! Professional, hard-working, polite…. they didn’t moan once and had such a good attitude towards their work. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

Booking this company for house removals was worth its weight in gold on moving day. It took a huge amount of stress away from me and my partner and we felt they were good value too.

From the very first contact to completion the quality of house removals service has been outstanding. A very professional family run removal company giving a safe, calm, polite personal service. Communication was good and prompt. Questions answered satisfactory. They treated us and our possession with care and respect and were able to adapt quickly and sensitively to changes and arrangements. Our move was from Staffordshire to Devon and involved 3 drop off points all of which were planned and executed perfectly without any hassle. We used the professional packing services. I would have no hesitation in recommending to you Norman Ferns to arrange your house removals.

Norman Ferns were prompt, polite and professional throughout our whole house removals experience. Booking was easy because of their clear and responsive communication. Their approach is very careful, considered and calming and you really get a feel that they are working with you and are happy to help out with any requests. Despite torrential rain all afternoon, they got the job done without any fuss. Highly recommended

Can’t recommend Ferns enough. From start to finish they made sure our move ran as smoothly and stress free as possible. Holly kept us informed every step of the way - always cheery and very helpful answering any questions we raised. When it came to the actual move, Dan, Ben and Joe were fantastic. They were non-stop, very professional, polite and courteous and made the whole move a calm, effortless, stress free experience. Nothing was too much trouble. Don’t hesitate instructing Ferns for your removal/storage services.

Dan, Holly and their assistants moved me from Cheadle to Leek just over a week ago, and I can absolutely recommend them. They were extremely efficient when we were moving house and friendly and helped make the task of moving to a smaller house after 41 years in the same home a lot less stressful than it could have been. If you are planning for a house removals service, you need Dan and his team.

We used Norman Ferns for a house removal on Friday 16/12/2022, from the minute Dan and the team arrived promptly on time we new we had made the correct decision in asking them to move us, from the telephone conversations prior to the move with Holly to the actual move itself, we could not praise them enough, we would have no worries in recommending them at all.

I can't praise Norman Ferns Removals highly enough. They have gone over and above helping us during our move. Both Dan and Ben were very helpful and friendly. They couldn't do enough for us. Worth every penny for the peace of mind knowing our belongings and furniture were being moved quickly and professionally. I highly recommend using them, a great service!

I used Norman Ferns Removal Company to help with my recent house removal. This was not easy as the place I moved from was at the top of a steep drive and 30+ steps! Nothing phased Dan and Ben!

All individual items were wrapped and put in strong cardboard boxes which were labelled to help with the unpacking. Furniture was carried to the vans at the bottom of the steps without incidents.

Everything was completed on time and taken to the new property where unpacking was easier as it is on the level! All the furniture was positioned where I asked so that, by the end of the day, the rooms looked well established. Cupboards and bookcases are now filled appropriately. I cannot thank them enough for making a very stressful time stress free and can recommend them if you are moving house without reservation.

We had a couple of other house removal quotes, from some other removal companies in Stoke, when we were planning our move but Dan outshone them all with his knowledge and experience - he gave us real confidence right from the start that our move would be well managed.

In addition the price was very fair and competitive. Communication was also great.

The Norman Ferns Story

Norman Ferns left the army in 1947 and borrowed £50 from his Aunt & Uncle to buy a lorry and get into the removal industry. He initially transported textiles in Stoke on Trent but later shifted to moving mill workers. He bought a haulage yard and buildings to house his vehicles and customers’ furniture in the mid-50s. In the mid-60s, he purchased a textile mill for heated storage and greater capacity. Norman Ferns’ son Barry joined the business in the mid-60s, and Daniel Ferns, Barry’s son, joined the removals and storage company in May 1999 as the third generation.
