On The Dot Removals
Moves That Don’t Cost The Earth
Welcome to On The Dot Removals Bristol
At On The Dot Removals Bristol our mission is to provide an affordable, efficient and friendly removal service which is both socially responsible and has minimal impact on the environment.
As removal service providers we recognise our work is with people who are moving through a potentially stressful time of their lives. Fully aware of this, we take pride in our responsibility to offer exceptional support during this period. It is of fundamental importance to us that we build rapport and trust with each individual person we work with from the moment you contact us through to the day of your move. We take our work seriously, as moving house is a serious business.
As European Green Capital in 2015, Bristol is renowned for its forward-thinking culture and environmental policies and practices. And yet for so many people moving home in Bristol, removal companies aren’t what spring to mind when it comes to reducing their own carbon footprint. We want to change this by putting environmentally responsible removals on the Bristol map.
From the moment Dave turned up on his bike to do the quote to when the 4 fab guys (John, Dom, Jamal & Ben - I think!) finally left having moved the last item in the sleet and dark, I felt totally reassured by this professional team. Nothing was too much trouble and they made a difficult day very much easier. Communicative, punctual, polite, helpful and a super service - thoroughly recommend this company.
We couldn’t fault the service we received from On The Dot removals. We used them for our office move, and it was important for us that the move take up as little time as possible so that we could all get back to our work. We were very impressed and grateful for the speed at which OTD Removals worked. I believe we received the name of the company on recommendation and would certainly use On The Dot for any similar moves in the future and recommend to anyone else!
Used On the Dot twice, moving my belongings in and out of storage. Can absolutely recommend: good communication with the office, and staff was punctual, friendly, worked in an efficient and structured manner, extremely careful not to damage anything. Brilliant!
Great guys, great price - they know what they're doing and madebrhe move as easy as possible. No job too big & would 100% recommend to freiends and family. A+++
Not only did On The Dot have some of the cheapest quotes in town but the service was exceptional from start to finish. We moved with Dom, who was the most lovely, relaxed, competent and friendly guy you could ask for. We really underestimated how much stuff we had, and Dom took it all in his stride with a smile on his face, it was entirely thanks to him that we actually had a very enjoyable moving day. I cannot recommend On The Dot enough. Just excellent.
Would 100% recommend this company. I have tried several removal companies and these guys were by far the best. Great communication from start to finish. They responded promptly to my queries and sent me regular updates on the day of the collection. The movers were very friendly and efficient. They truly care about their customers.
Got from A to B with no issues, nice and fast. Great service, good price!
Great service. Very friendly and professional when they called regarding the quote, and their timing & space estimate was bang on. They turned up as promptly as their name would suggest and the whole experience was hassle-free and painless. Their prices were far better than the competition to boot! Will recommend to friends for sure.
These guys are really, really good. The quote was the best by a mile, the guy showed up bang on time and he put loads of effort in all day. He was careful with our stuff, friendly and got the job done quick and well. Would definitely recommend them to anyone and if we were to move again (which hopefully won't be for a while!) I'd go straight to On The Dot.
Absolutely brilliant, second time I've moved with these guys and wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Jamel was great – really nice bloke who just got on with everything. Did an amazing job of getting the van into the tight road by our new house in belting rain, and made it a far less stressful experience than it could have been. Didn't cost the Earth, either.
A Greener Approach to Moving Home in Bristol
We only work with reused removals boxes, recycled wrapping paper and biodegradable bubble wrap. All of our staff wear fair trade certified uniforms made from organic materials and we accept the Bristol Pound, which helps support and promote local Bristol businesses and communities.
We also actively encourage lower fuel emissions by offering our customers half price if they are able to utilise one of our empty removal vans on route back from another job (we’ll even go up to ten miles out of our way to get to you). This not only cuts down on our C02 output but offers the chance for our proactive customers to make huge savings on their removal costs.

A Bristol Removal Company you can rely on
We are committed to offering exceptional customer care at every stage of the removal process, from the moment you speak to us on the phone, through to the big day itself. We will explain every stage of the process and will offer you the package that best suits your needs. We really do want your moving day to be as stress-free as possible.
If you require a smaller move or just need a few boxes shifted, we also offer a Bristol Man with a Van service.
Things to consider when booking a Bristol removals company
When choosing a Bristol removals company there are various things to consider. For a definitive list see 6 tips to choosing the right removal company, but here’s our quick guide:
Q: How long have they been established?
A: On The Dot is a fairly new company, having been established in 2011. Over the years we’ve acquired all the skills and knowledge of how to carry out a full house removal without a hitch.
Q: How large is the company, can they be competitive for both small and large Bristol removals?
A: We’re a small company, with just 3 removals vehicles. This allows us to remain competitive on price for small removals and “man with a van” type services, but also means we can offer very competitive prices for larger 2 and 3 bed house removals.
Q: Do they have all of the necessary equipment to ensure your goods are safely transported?
A: All our removals vans are fully stocked with the standard Bristol removals equipment: blankets, straps, sack trucks etc. We can also supply specialist equipment on request, such as mattress covers, artwork carriers, wardrobe boxes, freezer bags, etc. Please contact us with your requirements.
Q: What insurance do they have in place?
A: All Bristol removals companies should have standard removals insurance in place, however, it’s not compulsory by law and some don’t, so it’s worth checking. We cover for up to £20,000 goods in transit and £1m for public liability.
Q: Can they demonstrate accountability for their work through a transparent and trusted reviews platform such as Google+?
A: We have lots of reviews available to view on Google+. Google+ is a great platform for reviews, as it’s open to everyone to leave their comments and quality checked by Google themselves. Not all review platforms are built the same, so do your research if good reviews are an important factor in making your decision.
Q: How far are they able to travel and what are is the extra fuel charge for this?
A: Generally most of our moves either start or end within Bristol or close by. If we have to travel outside of Bristol, we do add a fuel charge, but generally, we charge fuel at cost price, so there’ll be no nasty surprises.
Q: What are they willing to carry in their removal vans?
Q: Can they carry out both domestic and commercial removals in Bristol?
Q: Do they charge VAT?
A: Most Bristol removal companies charge VAT on their prices. More established companies certainly will be VAT registered. Whilst this means you may pay a little more it is likely you will be getting a more experienced service.
