Customer Testimonials

We recently moved from France to the UK and cannot recommend enough the care and attention lavished on us by Jon. Our move was problematic, to say the least, but throughout Jon treated us with courtesy, understanding and great professionalism and all at a very modest price. He worked incredibly hard moving an enormous amount of belongings with great care, arranged storage facilities and made everything as stress free as possible for us. We cannot thank him enough and can only say ‘Safe Hands’ is the perfect name for his company.

- Wyn and Fred Chambers

My husband and I have used Jon on several occasions both France to England and vice versa. He has always been very courteous, honest and above all his professionalism stands out above the rest. You can be assured that if you use Jon for whatever your haulage requirements you will be most satisfied with his service and competitive price; he really does go that “extra mile”!!

Like us have you will have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone with delivery needs. Here’s to the next time Jon. Many thanks.

- Ray and Wendy Cockerton

Jon has brought 2 loads from the UK for me. The first was a lot of furniture and the second a brand new John Deere ride-on. Both times the quote was very reasonable and everything arrived on-time and undamaged.

The Company name says it all. An excellent service all round.

Thanks to Jon’s excellent contacts, I was able to buy the John Deere in the UK at an extremely good price and, even after transporting it, saved about 1500€ Thank you Jon.

- Andrew Edouard

We have used Jon twice and a friend has once on our recommendation. He has delivered as promised, promptly and in good condition on each occasion. We have no hesitation in recommending him as a good value, reliable transporter.

- John Westbrook

I just wanted to say thank you very much for the excellent service (pick-up as well as delivery!) especially as it was old fragile stemware that I wanted to give my god-daughter for her wedding gift. It would have been impossible to post ! Now wondering who I can give my porcelaine to…. Best of luck in your ventures, 

- Julie Leighton

I have used Jon Davis on numerous occasions and have found him to be exceptionally helpful, reliable, and polite at all times. If you are looking for someone hard working and honest who will take the utmost care with your belongings don’t hesitate to contact him you can be assured of excellent client service. I have felt very comfortable recommending him to friends.

- Mrs Doyle Surrey

John was introduced to me by a very good friend in France as a reliable, helpful and willing person for the service I required. This proved to be a very accurate description as John assisted me with the removal of my most valued pieces of furniture from my secondary home in France to my home in the UK. His service was excellent. timely and of good value. I would thoroughly and sincerely recommend John’s services and his chosen web site name states it all.

- Doreen Whitlock

I have used Jon’s services on several occasions often with awkward, heavy and bulky items. Nothing is too much trouble either with collection or delivery and it is always competitively priced – would recommend without hesitation.

- Fred Ward

Jon helped us transport two loads from Sussex to the Bordeaux area and both times I thought the service was excellent. The quote was very fair and, unlike with our previous long haul shipments with other companies, everything turned up on time, in one piece, with nothing missing. One load was mainly comprised of items we bought in the UK on the Internet for our summer home – eg table tennis table, table football table, trampoline, hoover, bedroom furniture, kids bikes etc. Even allowing for the cost of transportation we saved a small fortune compared to what it would have cost us if we bought the same things in France.
I wasn’t around to meet Jon at either end but my mum in Sussex and my French neighbour at the other end couldn’t have spoken more highly of him. I would definitely recommend using Jon again and I am certain that I will use him in the future when I want things transported to France by someone I know I can trust.

- Matthew Cooper

We used Jon and Safe Hands Haulage to move circa 16 cubes of furniture and belongings from the Dordogne to Orihuela Costa, Spain. From initial contact and the receipt of a very competitive quote to us saying adios after the shipment had been safely delivered and offloaded, we can honestly say you can rely on Jon’s company 100%. He arrived on time to collect and load, even helped us with a special local delivery of our piano to a friend’s house. The shipment arrived in Spain as scheduled and Jon offloaded and helped us move everything in to our 2nd floor apartment and adjoining store room. Nothing was too much trouble, nothing was damaged and a move which could have been a very stressful and difficult time proved to be quite the opposite. We were indeed in”safe hands”. Thanks again Jon. “Great service…efficient, helpful and friendly. I have recommended SafeHandsHaulage to my friends/relatives etc..”

- Jan Fairfax

I recently used JD Haulage to collect a bed I bought on from an address in Cambridgeshire. Jon kept me informed of the collection time he negotiated with the owner and also gave me good notice of when he was able to deliver to my home address. Jon was helpful and polite throughout. My item arrived in excellent condition and his price was the best I was able to find. I would not hesitate to recommend Safe Hands Haulage and have already done so with friends.

- Lynda Lawlor

Having sold my house in France I needed to clear the contents and transport them back to the UK in a very short time frame. A friend suggested I contact Jon. He was extremely helpful, quickly assessing the contents and costs (very reasonable) and arranging pickup and delivery to suit my needs. The contents arrived on time, safely and completely undamaged. I have already recommended Jon to some of my friends and I would not hesitate to do so in the future.
