Can anybody recommend a company in the Dorset area? We not planning on making the move until July/August next year, but it never hurts to start looking early.
Cheers

John Masons are a national company - Pickfords were also good but came in at a higher price. Most of these companies to my knowledge let you haggle a bit on price.

We are using leatherbarrows we think, My brother used them two years ago and was happy. They are based near Hurn (Bournemouth) airport, I think they are part of a bigger company.

White & Co are in Southampton..we are using them in August £3200 for a 20' container to ourselves..Use Letton Percival for insurance...loads cheaper than the shipping companies.
