I first had contact with Martin and Jackie of Astramove on a Saturday afternoon and had received my item, an antique bed, by Sunday evening. I had tried to describe the bed via the uship website which has resolutely changed my measurements to that of something 25 metres long by 10cm high! Fortunately the first contact from Astramove was from Martin questioning the measurements. Phew! It was all made very easy as unlike the difficulties in trying to contact most delivery people, with Jackie travelling as mobile office manager/delivery companion and helper there was always great communication as she was always there to manage the phoneline. My wrought iron (massively heavy) bed was brought from Surrey to Weston super Mare and Martin and Jackie took enormous care whilst we got it upstairs to ensure it reached its resting place with no damage. Martin and Jackie are a delight to meet as they take such joy in what they do and in helping people. They stayed for a cup (or two) of tea and a chat rather than rushing off and I got to know much more about them and their business. I would always recommend Martin and Jackie now for any move that fits into an Astra Van. They are not restricted by location as they meticulously plan their logistics. They are experts in moving all sorts of items including animals and artwork so I would trust them to transport anything. Thank you Martin and Jackie!
