We recently had the pleasure of hiring Tess and Paul for a house removal, and I must say, their service exceeded all expectations. From start to finish, their communication was impeccable.
Tess and Paul were not only professional but also incredibly friendly and approachable. They took the time to understand our specific requirements and concerns, ensuring a smooth and stress-free moving experience. Their attention to detail was evident in the way they handled our belongings and the properties involved.
It's rare to find a house removal team that not only provides excellent service but also goes the extra mile to make you feel at ease throughout the entire process. Tess and Paul truly excelled in this aspect. Their professionalism, combined with their friendly and considerate nature, made the entire experience enjoyable and hassle-free.
We very highly recommend them!

After contacting Tess about a last minute removal under quite difficult circumstances she did her best to accommodate me. Upon arrival they couldn’t have been more helpful, efficient and were SO speedy. They even helped me unload my own car! Thanks for all your help and kind understanding.

Very organised and efficient. the property we were moving out of was a nightmare when it came to moving furniture but they just got on with the job with a smile on their faces and a cheerful attitude. my wife and I both have medical issues and when we explained this, they insisted that we just sit back and relax and let them do all the work. every item was carefully handled and there were no breakages at all during the move. The price for the move was extremely reasonable. I cannot recommend Tess and Paul enough, they are great at what they do and make moving as stress free as possible. 10/10 without a doubt.

Tessa and Paul are marvellous. Efficient, organised, sensible strong and most of all they have that valuable human touch of empathy and sensitivity to emotional moving situations. The charity destinations are well thought through and very current. We highly recommend them for small and medium sized moves - even those annoying short-distance ones. Man & Wife fill the gap between strongarming reluctant friends to shove everything in a car, and hiring a huge company lorry. A lovely local business.

Paul and Tess have now moved us twice! This is a brilliant company. Well organised, great communication, careful with our prized possessions, flexible and very hard working. We couldn't have asked for more. Excellent value, great people to work with and good value for money. They took a lot of the stress out of what is normally a difficult day. I would strongly recommend them.

Tess and Paul, we just wanted to thank you for moving us last week. We were so stressed, but you made it an enjoyable day. You guys are so organised and made it look simple. Tess, you are amazingly strong, and Paul amazingly tidy with the placement of everything in the van.  I cannot believe our whole house fit in your van. Incredible! You were terrific throughout and will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone. Thanks again, and best wishes in the future.

Many Thanks to Tess and Paul who helped us move house at the end of March (sorry for late review but it’s been hectic!) They did a great job and were very accommodating when our moving date changed several times. Would highly recommend.

May 2020



We cannot thank Tess and Paul Delve enough for the way they took the weight from our shoulders – literally – and moved our furniture quickly, efficiently and smoothly from one address to another. Their quote was fair and we were able to pay in advance or upon completion. Tess and Paul took great care of our belongings and always checked with us first about timings, property access, method of collection and delivery and any special requirements on the day. They are a great team, putting you at ease straight away with their calm, easy-going manner, sense-of-humour and endless patience. They also do house clearances. We would not hesitate to recommend their services.

Dear Man & Wife with a Van AKA Tess & Paul

Thank you for the excellent and professional customer service you gave today with consignment across to Stafford.

Timeliness and care, organisation and communication, and all other aspects were of a very high order indeed. My family and myself are all truly delighted.

Once again many thanks for a job well done!.

May 2020


Julie S.

Tess and Paul have now moved me three times.. Not only are they great and efficient at what they do, but also go that extra bit to make sure you're ok in your new home. Also great at moral support at a very stressful time. I changed my last date just so that they could move me. Again wasn't disappointed.. Would recommend most definitely...

Jan 2020


Robert S.

Tess and Paul have helped us with moving stuff between London and Nottinghamshire twice now and we’d not hesitate to use them again. The are efficient, friendly and ‘can do’ with a sense of humour. Took all the stress out of that bit of our move. I definitely recommend.

Cathy G.

Tess and Paul have been brilliant packing up my father's house prior to rewiring. They are friendly, careful and really efficient! Would highly recommend

Jan 2020


Laura F.

Tess and Paul have just helped us move into our new home and I couldn't rate them highly enough. Friendly, helpful and competitive pricing, not to mention the fact they must be magicians to get everything packed in the van like they do. We exchanged and completed within a day of each other so everything was pretty chaotic with the packing but Tess and Paul went above and beyond to help us get sorted. To say they made our move less stressful is an understatement (even with three kids under the age of 4 and one energetic dog). We could not have done it without them!!! Thank you for everything.

Dec 2019


Karen T.

Tess and Paul are fantastic - efficient, tidy, helpful and really lovely people. My move went super smoothly because of them and I am so grateful! Thank you. Recommended you to many folk since. Hope you are both well and sorry it's taken me a while to post!

We had tess and Paul booked in for a second time today. Managed to fit us in with short notice and take a little of the stress away of another removals company cancelling on us.

As before, they were both very friendly, patient and helpful with my mums things.

Would definitely use again!! Thanks guys ?

Christina and Jim H.

Tess and Paul did a great job moving us into storage. They worked tirelessly, didn't add in any way to our stress... in fact they helped us cope with the move. They took great care of our belongings. Nothing was a problem to them. They just got on and sorted things out. We highly recommend them.

On the 19th of February Tess and Paul moved me form Newark to Market Weighton in East Yorkshire. I have had lots of house moves in my life but this was without doubt the best. They are very supportive and professional and I felt at ease and very happy that I had chosen them. Nothing was too much trouble. I recommend them without doubt. Thanks Tess and Paul

Tess and Paul worked tirelessly and with good humour despite pretty challenging conditions and a second storey location. Onwards to a storage lockup where Paul's packing resembled 3D Tetris! Thanks to you both for all your hard work

Paul & Tess quite simply the best, I used their services today after a friend recommended them, they are very professional in every respect, did a fantastic job, are a delight to work with, I will be recommending them to all my friends, thank you so much xx

October 2017


James K.

We hired Tess & Paul to complete a move from Lincolnshire to Leeds, involving picking up a sofa and chair from storage in Grantham, then collecting a piano from a village, then delivering those to Leeds. On arrival, they then collected a storage-unit full of boxes and furniture, and delivered those to the new property.

For such a request in many stages, they completed it with the utmost professionalism and charm. The incredibly large van was very well suited, with straps at the side for large items (sofa/piano) and also delicates (large TVs). They were constantly cheery (despite a hellish journey up to Leeds), and a joy to work with. Cannot recommend their services enough!

October 2017


Pippa K.

We used Tess and Paul to help us move our son today to his new home in Leeds. They were very helpful in quite a complicated situation. Tess offered the easy solution every step of the way and her bright, sunny nature made me feel like I’d known her for years. An absolutely fabulous team. Don’t look anywhere else, book them now.

Chloe B.

Excellent service from start to finish.
Tess & Paul were really helpful, efficient and super careful with all my important items. Would highly recommend to anyone from small move (like mine) or bigger removals. Competitive price which made van hire and doing it myself just not worth it and all the hard work involved!! Thank you Man and Wife with a Van!

July 2017


Sally G.

I had Tess and her husband (sorry didn't catch your name) for a house move today. Lovely, friendly people and took genuine care with my belongings. Packing everything in the van, wrapped in either blankets or cushions. Also good to have a woman's touch. Would highly recommend!  thankyou xx

Your business was just reviewed on Yell.com.

Rating: 5 out of 5Absolutely trustworthy and excellent service.

Hi Man & Wife with a Van,
Me and my partner work for the government and have to go away with work from time to time, we were due to move house and got called out of the country due to work commitments. We had organised the remainder of our things to be moved which fell through, I rang this company with our last minute needs. Both tess and her husband not only took on our needs for moving our belongings with less than a few hours notice, they were helpful and kind and handled all of our things with care and commitment. They took on our impossible ask and made it a breeze. They were more than reasonable with their costing and really did make our belongs there upmost priority. This company has been professional and courteous throughout and extremely reliable. I would recommend this moving company to anyone!

We cannot rate the service we received from Tess and Paul highly enough. They arrived early and were so efficient in how they worked. Both of them had a relaxed yet competent attitude which was extremely helpful in keeping us calm on what could've been a very stressful day.
